Video: Penn & Teller Bulls**t! tackles videogame violence

Ok, Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! is not exactly the highest on my list of shows to watch, but when it does it right, few shows on television or cable are better at pointing out the absurdity of most of today's cultural issues.

This particular episode covers videogame violence—rampant videogame violence if you listen to the likes of Jack Thompson or Hilary Clinton. Penn & Teller: Bulls**t! looks at the industry, the violent games and does a really good job of putting a sane face on some of the madness.

And thanks to YouTube, we are all able to watch what foolish Showtime subscribers pay to see. That is, until Showtime discovers that its content is available for free. So hurry up and watch it before it gets taken down.

Btw, this video is totally NSFW!

Retro Video: Banned Yoshi's Island commercial

Anyone else remember this Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island commercial?

This is what happens when Nintendo gets outside of its wheelhouse and tries to outdo its edgier competitors—it signs off on a commercial featuring a gross, exploding man. Did it sell the game? Hard to tell. All that happened for sure was that more than a few people were appalled by what they saw and demanded it be taken off the air.

It's funny because even by today's standards and the expanded waistlines of today's Americans, this would still be an offensive ad.

Enjoy!

Stephen Colbert unveils Microsoft's next console

It seems the writers for The Colbert Report, or perhaps even Stephen Colbert himself, were watching the Microsoft press conference at E3. And after watching the no doubt inspiring video for Project Natal, they came up with their own successor to the popular console.

Feel free to watch the entire thing, but the Xbox 360 talk doesn't start until the 1:40 mark.

Olivia Munn's Playboy cover revealed

Fans of G4TV's Olivia Munn that just can not get enough of the sultry looks she gives into the camera, her flagrant use of double entendres and propensity to don costumes taken out of every teenage boy's cosplay fantasies can finally see her in all her glory—if glory is another word for bikini.

Yes, Ms. Munn is giving her massive following another thrill as she poses again in Playboy and graces the cover in a skimpy red bikini.

The issue went on sale this Thursday, June 19th. Below is the reveal so you know what to look for.

Video: Conan O'Brien talks about Super Mario-inspired set

Viewers really need to support Conan's Tonight Show. He is such a refreshing change from Jay Leno.


Video: First footage of PSP Go leaked!

A video has been leaked from the June issue of Qore. Qore host Veronica Belmont gets to handle the new PSP Go as Sony's John Koller watches. From the video we learn that the UMD drive is gone in favor of16GB of internal memory that can be augmented with Sony memory sticks and it is Bluetooth compatible. Games like Metal Gear Solid, Jak & Daxter and Gran Turismo are mentioned. We'll have to wait until next week to hopefully see more footage.

Video: How can something called Muscle March be bad?

This game proves the Japanese are a very strange people.

Video: Breaking Fallout 3

Can you really beat (a level of) a Game of the Year contender playing as a baby?

Sad end to Duke Numem fiasco... or is it?

Duke Nukem Forever Screenshot

In his Wired article, Earnest Cavalli doesn't mince words. He starts off by saying "It's time to put Duke Nukem out of his misery." You can't be more direct than that and after starting a story in that way, you're not allowed to sugarcoat the rest of it. And Cavalli doesn't.

But he is correct. Though still popular—our Duke Nukem Never post proved a popular one—Duke was a character that time may have just passed by. Few gamers today can relate to Duke Nukem, a caricature of 1980s action heroes.

Video: Halo 4!!!

Another video I've been wanting to post for a while.

There must be tons of women out there who hate Halo. Yeah, World of Warcraft gets all of the attention for being addictive, monopolizing a gamers' time and causing all sort of marital problems. But other games do that too. One of those games is Halo. What are the ladies to do when a series is so rampantly popular and shows no sign of slowing down? You stop the problem at its source of course!

Parental discretion very STRONGLY advised! NSFW!
