The Tokyo Game Show 2009 is the gift that keeps giving, kids!

Check out the video below in which Japanese game fans don raiments reminiscent of the characters in their favorite video games. Cosplayers in Japan do not mess around.

Now that you've watched the video, which costume is your favorite?

Cupcake car

Before there was an internet, you might never have heard of Cupcake Cars. Created by Bay Area artist Lisa Pongrace, these babies feature a 24-volt electric motor and boast a top speed of 7 miles per hour. Your very own custom Cupcake can be yours for a mere $25,000. Neiman Marcus is offering them up for sale.

I suggest we get 2,500 people to put in a ten-spot each. I will keep the car, but in exchange for your 10 dollar donation, I promise to ride my cupcake car everywhere I go until the day I die. Deal?

Many of you have been asking about the art direction in EA's Brutal Legend. Consider your pleas heard and now answered as Double Fine's Art Director Lee Petty tours the entire world of the Jack Black-voiced action game and all of it's aesthetic inspirations. Here's a snippet:

"In addition to the tremendous amount of research into the S&M scene, we found a lot of inspiration in 15th Century Dutch Painter Hieronymus Bosch."

Yep. Enjoy.

Earlier in the month I wrote about Razer (best known for its gaming mice) making a line of StarCraft II messenger bags. I got my hands on the first of these bags -- the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty Ghost model, which was available at BlizzCon 2009. I previously wrote about the Zerg bag, which will be available to the public at a later date. For now, enjoy these photos of my excess (and awesome) baggage.

When you're done, leave a comment (please) and let me know what you think of the bag. Would you proudly wear it in public? Or is it too "gamer" for you? Personally, I'm thinking of flying to Seoul just to show the bag off -- the chicks at the Internet cafes will totally dig it.

Gabe Newell Wins Second Prize In Beauty Padgaent

Valve's managing director Gabe Newell is a sexy man, and some internet pranksters (or Gabe himself) decided recently to enter Newell in Victoria's Secret's Love Your Body By Victoria contest, a vote-by-web competition where fans of Victoria's Secret shill for votes, and the winner gets a free trip to New York and a pair of panties or something.

Gabe was doing great, too. He was second place in the voting, having earned over 36,000 nods, only falling behind 4Chan founder moot. To put this in perspective, the next entry down (a lady with cancer) has like 8,000 votes. But Victoria's Secret apparently doesn't take too kindly to people trying to rig its contest, so they've taken Newell and moot's entries off the front page of the site. The individual pages are still there, but they're not in the list of winning entries.

It isn't fair that a large, furry man who makes great video games can't win an internet lingerie contest. Victoria's Secret is really being underhanded here by removing him from the front page of their site and the active entries, and I suggest you, TheFeed reader, visit Newell's page and vote for him. It will only take a second, and you know you loved Portal, so do it.

360 Bento Box

I tried eating my 360 controller the other day, and it tasted like plastic and broken dreams. If only I had had a 360 Bento box like the one pictured above I would have had a nice lunch and a mouth full of unchipped teeth. It looks delicious, right?

The controller is mostly Jasmine rice, but other key ingredients include seedless cuke slices, Konnyaku (gray Japanese yam cake), and a large amount of seared Spam Lite. The only bit of unnatural color in the box: The blue button. That's egg white with blue food coloring. There is no blue food. My only suggestion is adding a little more red pepper to make the Red Ring.

Laura Bento made this for her boyfriend. He is either a very lucky guy or a very unlucky one; I can't decide which. While I appreciate the work, care and craftsmanship that went into creating this (and the other elaborate Bento Boxes on Laura's Flickr stream), the obsessiveness of the Bento Box thing creeps me out just a tiny bit... but then, hey, I eat totally ugly Sloppy Joes for lunch, so I probably shouldn't talk.

Justin timberlake perfume

Classy French perfumer Givenchy is creating a new fragrance based on Justin Timberlake's unique stench. Play is contained in a bottle that looks like an MP3 player or an iPod. According to Givenchy, the bottle, designed by French sculptor Serge Mansau, was inspired by "mobile multimedia gadgets, those quintessential objects of modernity and style that have become both everyday objects and icons of our era." Look for a series of Justin Timberlake ads in glossy magazines this month. The fragrance comes in both regular and "intense" varieties.

Speaking of intensity, here's a little advice: Go easy on the cologne, fellas. Easier even than you think you should go. Seriously, that's too much. Half of that much. Just a tiny hint. That's what the ladies like. Just a tiny, tiny bit.

Oh, and don't buy Justin Timberlake cologne in a dumb MP3 bottle either. It's stupid and desperate. Find some classy fragrance instead. It will cost you, but it will be worth it.

You know what, all of this stuff with cologne is pretty complicated. Just forget it. Order a pizza and play Bubble Bobble instead.

Sexy Pirate

I obviously do not support illegal file-trading (perish the thought!), but it's hard not to like file-trading site The Pirate Bay. Months after its founding members were charged in Sweden and fined millions of dollars, and the day after a judge ordered that the site be closed, The Pirate Bay is still up and still hosting links to files.

Re-posted below is a Pirate Bay communique sent to the world this morning. Please enjoy:

We have, ourselves, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our Internets, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

Even though large parts of Internets and many old and famous trackers have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Ifpi and all the odious apparatus of MPAA rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the ef-nets and darknets, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Internets, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the baywords.org, we shall fight on the /. and on the digg, we shall fight in the courts; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, the Internets or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the Anon Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in Cerf's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.

Signed;

The Pirate Bay Crew - Now until needed.

What this means in light of the Pirate Bay's recent sale to Global Gaming Factory X, and the promise that the Pirate Bay would go legit remains to be seen.

(Tekken + TapouT) + (Halo + Ecko) = Hipster Gamer Fashion

Capitalizing on the burgeoning popularity of video games, two fashion labels have started up lines of video-game clothing. Namco Bandai announced multi-year partnership with TapoutT to produce a line of Tekken 6 clothes. Meanwhile, global fashion giant Marc Ecko has kicked off a line of Halo t-shirts. While retro-game clothing has been popular at stores like Hot Topic, clothes based on modern games are comparatively unpopular in America (Japan is an entirely different story). TapouT and Ecko will undoubtedly change that.

Before Affliction became the hot fashion brand with the mixed-martial arts crowd, TapouT was king. Formerly working with popular fighters like Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell, TapouT was the number-one brand in American MMA. Unfortunately, the company's popularity peaked at the very beginning of the sport's boom. Affliction quickly supplanted and surpassed TapouT. Perhaps reaching out to a different crowd will help the company's fortunes. Maybe Tekken 6 t-shirts and hoodies will sell like cinnamon buns (hot cakes are lame).

G4tv.com's TheFeed sneakers by Brass Monki

Last week, TheFeed's Stephen Johnson wrote about Brass Monki's awesome video-game sneaker-designs. From Mario to Sonic to Pikachu to moogles, Brass Monki has some truly brilliant designs for kicks. As a show of thanks, the company's Daniel Reese sent in a design based on TheFeed! They're totally awesome and I want three pairs now. Why three pairs? Well, I need a pair to wear, one for backup, and another to throw at misbehaving staffers.

Would you wear TheFeed-branded sneakers?

Flying Car

The future has finally arrived: Genuine flying-cars are available for pre-order from ParaJet. The ParaJet SkyCar is street-legal, and can accelerate to 62mph in just 4.2 seconds. Plus, it can frickin' fly. It works by way of a parachute style wing and a big fan. Sure, it's a far cry from George Jetson's sweet whip, but hey, flying car fans will take what they can get.

According to ParaJet:

"It will be easier and safer to fly than any other aircraft, as it has no pitch control and therefore impossible to stall or dive. Should the engine fail, the pilot would simply glide down into the nearest field or strip of sandy desert.

In the unlikely event of catastrophic wing failure, car connection system failure or mid-air collision, an emergency ballistic reserve parachute can be deployed."

What could possibly go wrong? Anyway, to get your own flying car, you'll need to plunk down £10,000 ($16,381) now and pay the remaining £50,000 ($81,905) just before its scheduled shipping window in "late 2010."  Sounds good, but the lack of any video of the car in action on ParaJet's website sets off my "vapor-ware" alarm. Oops. There's a video right here! But I still think you'd have to be insane to drive around in a dune-buggy with a parachute attached to the back.
