5 Shameless Lies Video Game Companies Got Away With (Almost) (via Cracked)

I tried to warn the world two years ago that every company involved in the production of video games is a gang of treacherous liars.  Not only was my shocking exposé snubbed by the Pulitzer committee, it also somehow didn’t grind the world’s largest entertainment industry to a halt.  So let’s try again: here’s my latest Cracked article, 5 Shameless Lies Video Game Companies Got Away With (Almost).

7 Beloved Video Game Consoles That Were Almost Completely Different (via WhatCulture)

Video game consoles go through a lot of changes before they hit stores.  Some are pretty well-publicized, like that time Microsoft almost prevented you from sharing Xbox One games as an experiment to see how many people they could sell a PlayStation 4.  Others are a little lesser known, and for those, you should check out my first article on WhatCulture, 7 Beloved Video Game Consoles That Were Almost Completely Different.

Weight Loss Chewing Gum: 3 Insane Old-Timey Comic Book Ads

I’ll Try to Say 3 Nice Things About Donald Trump

The 2016 U.S. presidential election is the hot topic right now, but aside from when I corrected a report about Donald Trump being Batman or when I invited a wasp-besieged guest to blog about the election, I’ve more or less avoided the topic.  That’s because, even by our standards, this has become a nasty and divisive election cycle.  In the interest of full disclosure, I’m not at all comfortable with Donald Trump’s campaign, but that’s partly because I’m a cog in the vast liberal Zionist feminist New World Order conspiracy.  Still, I think it’s important to see topics from more than one perspective (but no more than two, because that would be confusing and nuanced).  In that spirit, here’s my attempt to say three nice things about Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.
