Hit Three in a Row in the Zuma Deluxe Video Game

Now Zuma Deluxe is a Match 3 type of video game that I think is definitely a force to be reckoned with. I first played this game a few years back when I was still in college. I stopped playing the game when things got busy with my thesis but I didn't bother to uninstall the game, figuring I would just finish the game later on. I eventually forgot about it until yesterday.

Wake Up To The Nostalgic (And Annoying) Sounds of the Pac-Man Alarm Clock

I don't know anyone who belongs to our generation that hasn't played or at least heard of Pac-Man--that tiny, yellow dude who went around mazes eating pac-dots while being chased by Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde and loading up on power pellets to turn the tide on his would-be assailants. Now fans and collectors can have a little piece of Pac-Man in their own room and right beside their bed care of the Pac-Man Alarm Clock by Firebox.

How To Turn Your iPod Into a Mini Pinball Machine

This generation's kids are a bit more luckier, because Sega Toys has now made this possible with the Tokyo Sky Tree Indoor Planetarium.

Hustle Your Way In The Burger Bustle Video Game

Burger simulation and time management games are not uncommon in the world of video games. Assemble a burger, cook patties and add different condiments, get them to the customer before they get angry--yep, we've played all that before. Cue the entry of Burger Bustle, a game that hopes to bring something different to the plate.

Forget The Mouse, Use Your Talons: The Razer Talon

Unless you're a professional gamer who's optimized their rig to the extreme, there'll always be someone faster. Maybe they've got a better mouse. Maybe they've trained harder. Maybe they're just naturally adept at computer games. At the end of the day, all that matters is that, when faced with a foe like them, the traditional keyboard-mouse interface just seems...clunky.

Razer can help.

Royal Wedding PEZ Dispensers: The King's Sweets

PEZ makes around 80 million dispensers annually, most of those in China, but the special set of William and Kate PEZ dispensers available to eBay bidders from April 7 through 17 are priceless... literally.

Retro Handheld Gaming on Your PC with Pica Pic

Remember the days when hand-held game and watch consoles only featured one game which was basic and simple in premise and gameplay? I recall owning two or three of these back in the day so I found it a pleasant surprise to find at least one of the previous game titles I owned on Pica Pic, a brand-spanking new site that allows you to play over 19 classic games for free online.
