I have trouble staying in the lines: 90’s Coloring Book for Adults

Hey guys, my birthday is coming up and you know what I want? World Peace. Just kidding! That will never happen. What I really want is this Color The 90s adult coloring book by Outrageous Katie. It says ‘Adult’, so don’t let anyone give you any shit about being in your 20s, 30s or 40s and coloring in a coloring book (50 years olds can suck it, your were in your 20s when this stuff was relevant). For those interested in this little piece of Nostalgic awesomeness, you can buy it on Amazon! That place has everything! Except my fathers love….Anywho! Check out the link here as well as a few pictures below to get a taste of what the book offers and to plan out your coloring adventure! I myself am going to color Tim Allen blue because I’ve never seen a¬†blue Tim Allen before and quite frankly, I want to see one. Advertisements

“In 9 hours and 23 minutes… you’ll be mine”: Labyrinth Board Game Coming

Well, we’ve all be meaning to get around to watching Labyrinth to truly honor the passing of David Bowie, but now we have even more intensive to do so because a board game coming this summer! The game will be released by River Horse and the breakdown is as follows: This is the maze that players must navigate every time they wish to save Sarah’s baby brother. Each game is different with the blank card spaces being filled with the magical encounters and monsters that are depicted on the deck of cards that comes with the game, this ensures a great deal of replayability and unpredictability in the game, giving the Labyrinth its signature feel. The game consists of two distinct stages, one where the group must adventure through the labyrinth trying to find the goblin city whilst keeping their willpower as high as possible (nobody wants to fall into the oubliette!), and a second action-packed stage where the players must fight their way into Jareth’s castle where Sarah must say the magical words that …

The Jamiroquai Game is a video game (playable and downloadable HERE) that recreates the famous moving room music video for Jamiroquai’s 1996 hit ‘Virtual Insanity’. The object of the game is to not get hit by the a couch. If you do, you lose. Get it? It’s a metaphor for the oil crisis in America.

Failed Nintendo Product: The NES Speedboard

Nintendo stated when this bad boy came out that gaming from now on would be viewed as “Pre-Speedboard” and “Post-Speedboard”. They felt this product was that much of a game changer (quite literally).

Neither, it simply was a piece of plastic that is meant to hold the Nintendo controller for you, so you are able to press buttons faster. Yup. That’s it. Believe it or not, the speedboard was a bust. In fact, some people see it as the biggest bust in video game accessory history. I mean, holding the controller so you can hit the buttons faster? That’s so dumb! Everyone knows moving the controller around widely was the ultimate way to win at Nintendo. It also looked really cool:
