Pokemon

Video: Ninten-blow (Possibly NSFW)

Adult Swim takes the innocent act of a child trying to make his NES cart work and makes it dirty... and funny.

Video: Paralyzed Pokemon returns (NSFW)

And you thought the worst that could happen to a Pokémon in a fight was that it might "faint." No sir, in fact there are repercussions that could come back to haunt you.

Video: Ohio State University pays tribute to video games at half-time show

I'm not much into the college marching bands, I don't watch college football and no matter how amazing some say Drumline was, it has never occurred to me that I need to watch a marching band actually do anything.

This is a different matter entirely.

The Ohio State University pays tribute to beloved classic video games (and Halo) during the half-time show at the Ohio State University vs Nebraska game. Games honored at the show were Tetris, Pokémon, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Halo, The Legend of Zelda and Pac-Man. Try not to jump out of your seat and cheer when Epona makes an appearance.

Cosplay: Pokemon's Jessie and James (Team Rocket)

Cosplay: Pokemon's Jesse and James (Team Rocket)

Since their first appearance in Pokémon, Jessie and James (and Meowth) held the distinction for being some of the more unique adversaries you could come across in a video game world. Funny, annoying and empathetic, they were as big a part of the franchise as Ash Ketchum and crew. Given all that, it isn't surprising that someone like Malro-Doll would attempt Team Rocket cosplay.

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire – Second Opinion

In his review of Pokémon: Sapphire/Ruby, Chi talks about the lethargy Pokémon trainers eventually experience. The game's problem, he writes, "is that at the end of the rainbow it expects players to stay in Oz rather than go home." He's right.

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire – Review

Even with a predictable commercial stigma that 10-year olds can see coming a mile away, the game delights and triumphs as an irresistible pass-time. Nintendo hasn't forgotten how to engage a gamer and at its core, Sapphire/Ruby, no matter how familiar it looks, sounds and still feels like a good game.

Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire

Game Description: Pokémon Sapphire and Ruby take place in an all-new region known as Hoenn. When the game starts, you get to decide to control either a boy or girl Pokémon Trainer. Whichever you choose, the storyline will be the same—your goal is to set out in the world and become the world's greatest Pokémon Trainer.
