Leviathan: Warships – It’s High Tide a Game Like This Came Along

Today while gobbling up my lunch provided by 7-11 (note: don’t leave your delicious lunch at home) I stumbled across the trailer for Leviathan: Warships, a new turn based strategy title from Paradox Interactive.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a pair of blue-collar janitors battled Imperial grime, with only a sonic mop and a bottle of glass cleaner to see them through!

Would You Actually Watch this Mass Effect Cartoon Series? (video)

Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
