Earlier this summer, photos of "Bunny Island" popped up on English language sites. The island, officially named Okunoshima, has been internet fodder in Japan for years. But usually, people only focus on the cute rabbits—and not, you know, the disheartening history bit.
I wish someone invented a way to use SNES controllers on the Dreamcast. I can think of one easy way, but that FGWidget Converter is expensive, and while a Mad Catz dreampad is not.
Fatal Fury: Mark of the Wolves is coming to the Neo Geo X. Though you probably have the Xbox 360 version or the Dreamcast version or the PS2 version. http://www.engadget.com/2013/02/21/neo-geo-x-cart-system-update-case-and-cable/

This JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle trailer will pound the ever loving crap out of you if you don't watch it.
This guy on cheapassgamer.com has built a kit to install a backlit screen on the original Game Boy Advance. https://rosecoloredgaming.wordpress.com/ Among other things, he also recolors GBA Micros and such.
Did anybody see last night's Bob's Burgers? That was a totally great shot for shot remake of the bouncing Totoro scene, complete with cheering and such. It was totally bizarre.

New Wii bundle is $130, and includes Wii Sports Resort and Wii Sports in one disc instead of New Super Mario Bros. I wish it came with an extra Wii Remote, but who cares? Wii U is imminent. http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/10/15/3505644/wii-price-drops-to-129-99-includes-wii-sports-and-wii-sports-resort
They're going to release Darkstalkers Resurrection soon, though I wish it were the Matching Service version instead of something like the Marvel vs. Capcom Origins.
That Neo Geo X system is getting more and more enticing each day. USB controllers. 4:3 resolutions. Ninja Master's. If those sticks are easily moddable I'm going to blow a gasket.
Woah, Ramen making in Yakuza 5?! http://www.siliconera.com/2012/10/10/yakuza-5-has-ramen-making-and-snowball-fight-mini-games/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+siliconera%2FMkOc+%28Siliconera%29
This isn't the first time Kevin Butler betrayed the company he was working for. That vaguely Arab terrorist was just a patsy. Who really unleashed that missile?
I got a copy of Yakuza from the Gamestop PS2 sale (less than $4! yay!), and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the game. When it first came out, I joined the bandwagon of naysayers complaining about how they should've kept the original Japanese voices without playing the game first.
