Much like the Steam Summer Sale that dropped a week ago, Humble Bundle is now offering a whole bunch of music for super-super cheap.
If you’ve never heard of Humble, it’s a kickass site that specializes in selling music at a price the consumer prefers — or, as Wikipedia puts it, a series of collections (“bundles”) of video games or music albums that are sold and distributed online at a price determined by the purchaser.

Beer (as his friends like me now call him) reached out to us via Twitter to drop this little nugget of audio L337-ness, and damn if it doesn’t put a neat little spin on Jace’s original.

One grocery store was listening, and has officially created a “man aisle’ so you don’t have to hop over the cosmetics and dive through the paper towels to get your man things. It’s called Brocery shopping and was created by the fine folks at The Westside Shopping Market in New York City.

We have been reporting to you lately about the OUYA gaming console that has been garnering a ton of attention as of lately, both good and bad. Today some positive news out of the OUYA camp surfaced pertaining to the Android-based gaming console in terms of OnLive support at launch. A full image of the OUYA controller has been released as well (below).
The announcement that OnLive is coming to OUYA at launch was made on the Kickstarter Updates page today. “Through OnLive, OUYA will offer hundreds of playable titles from great publishers. Hundreds of games, streamed right to you, on demand. Pretty sweet,” the post reads.
The video is recorded in China at the Joy Expo in Shanghai and depicts an impatient gamer, with money to burn, nudge a guy repeatedly playing a demo he is interested in.
Translated by Kotaku, we can hear the impatient rich guy say, “Let Me Play!” in Chinese several times (video below).
We then see the rich guy pull out a wad of Chinese money, proceeding to throw it in the other gamer’s face. According to Kotaku it looks like Continue reading “DAILY VIRAL VIDEO: Guy Gets a Wad of Cash Thrown in His Face” »
I know what you’re probably thinking: who gives a f*ck about Popeye? (Perhaps more appropriately, does anyone under the age of 20 even know who Popeye is anymore?) Yet if you give Genndy Tartakovsky‘s Popeye fan film a chance, you’ll find something akin to the Nolan adaptation of Batman. Only more in its own twisted, pulpy, kinda WTF way.
It’s dark, it’s brooding, it’s also a bit violent and even bloody in parts. And hey, it’s even in 3D (you won’t need the glasses). Best of all, no Robin Williams montages to sit through.
If there’s any way of describing the latest soundcloud track from Noodles Productions, it’d be exactly that — its dark, smooth style lulls us into that uncertain territory that is goodbye.
If there’s someone I least expected to come out hating on Windows so adamantly, it’s Valve‘s software chief.
I dunno why — it has nothing to do with him pocketing about $13 million working for them, which in turn enabled him to start up Valve. But man, he really blasted them on the whole Windows 8.
Yet that’s exactly what Gabe Newell has already labeled the new Windows: “(It’s) a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space,” to be exact.
As the PlanetSide 2 Beta starts to rolls out (you can register for it here) the official trailer hits the net at over three and a half minutes.
It doesn’t give us much in game footage but does give us an insight into what the world looks like; thousands of players on one massive map (more is also featured on the next episode of The Jace Hall Show we might add). Continue reading “DAILY VIRAL VIDEO: PlanetSide 2 Trailer Debuts” »
This story is rated NSFWS: Not Safe For Weak Stomachs
Today could’ve been worse — instead of not being able to sleep-in you could have had your junk cut off.
Fei Lin, an man from Niqiao village near Wenling City in eastern China claims he was snoozing for a bruising when a couple of thieves came in and threw a bag over his head (err….his face).
“They put something over my head and Continue reading “DAILY RANT: Man’s Penis Stolen In His Sleep” »
A mere decade after its release, Y: The Last Man is widely celebrated as one of the greatest comic books on the planet. Why? The short answer is, because it’s f*cking awesome. It’s fascinating and original sci-fi story, with a ballsy and original plot, while at the same time exploring all kinds of sexual/gender tropes, and pondering exactly what kind of future biology can offer mankind.
And as it remains in cryogenic chambers whilst industry writers try to hack away at it, perhaps we can console ourselves with this: a Y fan film, which comes courtesy of IGN. The result is surprisingly kick-ass. Continue reading “DAILY ONLINE SERIES: “Y:The Last Man” Fan Film Offers Kick-Ass Adaptation of Acclaimed Graphic Novel” »
The Walking Dead iOS game based on the popular TV series hit the App Store today. Telltale Games confirmed the launch date of title earlier this week with a post on its official blog. Walking Dead: The Game, episode 1, will cost you $4.99 in the App Store.
You play as Lee Everett, in what is an entirely new story, where he will be accompanied and must protect a young orphaned girl named Clementine from both the undead and other human survivors.
The description of the title hints that the gameplay will be much deeper than your average zombie experience, “This is not another shoot ‘em up; it’s a game that explores some very dark psychological places,” continuing to say that the undead aren’t Continue reading “DAILY MOBILE: The Walking Dead iOS – Episode 1 Available Now” »
A new Portal speed run world record has been set–8:31.93
It took only 8 minutes 31 seconds for players Nick “Z1mb0bw4y” Roth, Josh “Inexistence” Peaker, Nick “Gocnak” Kerns, and Sebastian “Xebaz” Dressler to finish Portal. The new time is a world record that shaved off nearly 50 seconds from the previous record set in 2010. Watch the Sourceruns members rip through the Valve classic in the video below.
The world record was set initially by Continue reading “DAILY GAMING: Portal Beaten in 8 Minutes – World Record Set” »
Even as we all watch Christian Bale and grieving families in the wake of last week’s shooting, it’s natural to feel powerless. There’s a bunch of different ways to help, however, if you’re so inclined — among them the Aurora Relief Fund, which has collected over $2 million so far.
We’re not talking just basic medical care but years of post-op/physical therapy a lot of the shooting victims will likely need afterwards.
Even if somebody can just spread the word, the more people who hear about such foundations, the more likely they are to get the money they need. Here’s a few of the organizations taking donations:
It’s been almost a year in the making and today it is finally here; The Jace Hall Show Pac Man Fever Redux has officially dropped on The Jace Hall Show and is now available for you to download FOR FREE! Jace worked with Gary Garcia on the song until Gary’s untimely passing this past year
Not only is the redux an epic re-imagining of the original Pac Man Fever hit by “Buckner and Garcia”, which was one of the first video game music songs to ever hit the mainstream, the music video features some of the top krump dancers on the face of the planet.

When you need a bunch of classic anime themes covered by a power metal band, who do you call? ANIMETAL USA, dammit. Comprised of some of heavy metal’s most dedicated veterans, AUSA do some pretty dead-on and polished versions of everything from the theme to Dragonball Z to Makafushigi Adventure to Neon Genesis Evangelion.
If this means anything, Chris Impellitteri, Mike Vescara, Jon Dette and Rudy Sarzo are from some of the most respected metal bands on the planet — Slayer, the unpronounceable Yngwie Malmsteen, and Ozzy Osbourne among them. Personally, it’s a very welcome (and loud) respite from the overdose of sub-average nerdcore acts all over the planet.

The long awaited World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria will be released on September 25th according to a post on Battle.net (via The Verge). The long running MMORPG will see the fourth expansion to the title released both digitally and at retail.
Mists of Pandaria adds quite a substantial amount of content to the already massive WOW experience. We will see a new race, the Pandaren, a brand new continent called Pandaria as well as a new class–the Monk.

A new mobile gaming device out of China has surfaced today and is causing quite a controversy over its name and hardware design.
The DROID X360 (video below) has a hardware design that looks nearly identical to the PS Vita and with a name like that its sure to stir up some issues with a host of major players like: Microsoft, Motorola, George Lucas and Verizon.
Nobody likes plucking down an extra $5 dollars or whatever it is for post-production 3D conversion processes, and with the exception of Prometheus, not many movies since Avatar have managed to sway movie-goers in the opposite direction (and unlike us here at The Jace Hall Show, where we actually FILM in 3D, the post conversion can often make films look EXACTLY the same).
Apparently Funny Or Die believes the same thing, as the following trailer proves: Combining scenes from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Amazing Spider-Man, Men in Black 3, The Avengers, Battleship, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and GI Joe: Cobra Rises or whatever it was called, more than a few of you will likely be reminded of how much 3D sucks.

Who doesn’t love boobs? NO ONE, I tell you. Even girls love boobs. If they’re good girls, that is, as evidenced by most of the boob-friendly cosplayers out there.
Yet with the recent surfacing of certain online videos and Kickstarter campaigns, the validity of boobage seems to be up for debate.
Take comics artist Aaron Diaz, aka Dresden Codak, who took the time to explore the varying cleavage of different superheroines — Power Girl, Wonder Woman, etc. — and determine whether it’s a good or bad, albeit in a strictly superheroine utilitarian sense.
