For those of you who have never heard of the mobile app, Tinder, it’s a dating app that allows you to swipe-right through profile pictures of people who are near you and share the same interests as you.
However, with wanting Tinder to be more than “just an dating app”, co-founder Sean Rad has given the app a new update that allows for more than just potential romances and booty calls. Now, aside from just clicking and looking, Tinder 3.0 allows the use of blocking people, making new connections worldwide (Or at least citywide, in some instances), and helping compatible people meet (and even marry) as well as overall evolving into an app that goes beyond the simple dating app.
“You have certain co-workers, acquaintances, and whatnot, and it would be socially awkward if you added them on Facebook.” He explains in a recent interview. ”It’d be weird to add her on Facebook, or follow on Instagram, but for the first time I can say ‘Hey Whitney, what’s up?” if we’ve both swiped right. That’s the breakthrough with Tinder. That signal has been gone until now.”
According to Rad: “Tinder is currently seeing 400 million swipes a day and 4 million matches per-day, up from 350 million and 3.5 million in October. The iOS app has been hovering towards the #10 rank in Lifestyle and #100 overall for about a year“. What’s more is that with the app available in multiple languages, you literally have the ability to talk to anyone from anywhere and meet that special someone, whether it’s strictly for networking purposes, a quick romp, or right down the aisle to “I do”.
And Dad of the Year goes to…not this guy.
Antwain Sutton was responsible for watching over his 4 year old son, but decided that video games were more important. Sutton admitted to leaving his 4 year old son alone so that he could go down the street and play video games. Meanwhile, his son wandered out into the apartment building, in his underwear, where neighbors stumbled on the seemingly lost boy.

Is it just me, or have we been talking about Pornhub a lot on this show, lately? And why not! We all love porn. In fact, more than just a few of us at the Jace Hall Show were stoked when PornIQ was released, because finding good porn is just such a chore these days and we like things simple. (And kinky. And covered in fur. And tentacles, too.)
That being said, Sony fans will have access to as much furry and tentacle porn as their heart pleases, because Pornhub has officially become the first pornographic site to be fully supported by the PS4.
I mean, maybe I’m cheap, but I wouldn’t shell out over $400 bones (Ah-ha, accidental pun) just to get off too. (Yes, girls watch porn too.) And if you’re like most people who own a PS4, the usual set up is for the living room area…maybe, bedroom, but nine times outta ten, the parents who buy this system for their kids for the holidays are probably going to have it in the living room or some general, easy-access area where a few people occasionally commune. I want you, if you can, to imagine waking up to your dad, grandpa, aunt, mom, etc…jacking off while using your brand new PS4 to steam porn.
Let that image stew there for a moment.
However if live alone, you can get your jollies off anywhere in the house and not have to worry about being caught, because that’s definitely one of the perks of being a responsible adult. Let’s take a peep at all of the devices of which Pornhub is now readily available:
6) Wii U (YES. The WII U).
Basically, any digital device that has internet capabilities and doesn’t have a Parental Control blocker. And frankly, as an avid watcher of porn, I’m glad to know that when I’m not busying busting skulls on my new PS4, it has a more practical use–watching porn. I cannot wait to see the news posts from the pissed off parents who caught their son (Because, speaking from a solely female perspective, we women tend to be a bit more discreet in getting our jollies off) using that brand new, $400 dollar piece of equipment to do what they could have just as easily done with their phone–in the privacy of their own room.
Stay tuned, sports fans. This is going to be good.
Without so much as a single reason why, the Supreme Court has rejected a call to challenge the NSA (National Security Association)’s security telephone recording surveillance program.
If you’re like me, you’re wondering, “Okay, and I care…why?” Any other time our government makes a boneheaded move, I’d be more inclined to just roll my eyes and say, “‘Murica”. But, this is huge. Why? Because that means that there are people working with us to ensure that bulk data collecting (Phone tapping, tracking your internet history, etc) will no longer be an issue in the future. Now, I’m not saying it’s there yet–in fact, it may time some serious time given we have the most historically unproductive congress of all time.
What’s more is that privacy advocates, such as Senators Ron Wyden and Rand Paul, two people of totally opposite parties and views, want to end bulk collection entirely, provide more transparency to congress, and allow citizens to sue the NSA.
But, until Preisdent Obama’s NSA Taskforce releases it’s recommendations on how to further go about this, don’t expect any sort of change anytime soon.
Just when we thought Sony Pictures’ upcoming Angry Birds movie sounded ridiculous, Warner Bros. announced today that another popular app, Temple Run, will be getting the Hollywood treatment.
David Heyman, who previously produced Gravity and the Harry Potter film series, will produce the film based on the endless runner game.
The Hollywood Reporter said that, while Warner Bros. is still looking for a writer for the script, the movie’s plot will focus on “an explorer who, having stolen an idol from a temple, is chased by demonic forces.”
Earlier this year, Imangi Studios released a sequel to their commercially-acclaimed app. After its release, Temple Run 2 was downloaded 50 million times in less than two weeks.
Some people will go to any lengths to protect what’s their’s–especially gamers. We are known to be a selfish bunch when it comes to our consoles unless we really trust someone, in which case, we make them sign the agreement in blood (and their first-born child).
However, New Zealand is serious about the impending launch of the XBox One. So serious, they’ve decided to have live sharks guard the first XBox One. No. Really.
No. Really. To make sure no one would get any funny ideas, Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium, which is in Auckland, has submerged the first XBox One under water to be guarded by live sharks. The day that the One launches, it will be fished out of the aqaurium and handed to the first person who reserved it.
(Assuming the sharks don’t willingly give it up first.)
(Alternative title: “Wait. What?”)
No, really. What?
What you’re watching is a man having sex with his computer. Or, rather, having sex with a computer program. While I generally try never to yuck someone else’s yum, I really don’t have any other type of response outside of, “WHAT?”. The PC Demo, VR Tenga demo for PC was made to accompany a future game for the Oculus Rift, comes with gadgets that help to mimic the actions of getting blowjobs and having sex.
To put it succinctly, if you have ever wanted to live out the fantasy of having sex with an anime character, your prayers have finally been answered.
(Especially if you’re a pedophile because that girl looks like she’s NINE.)
There is no news on when the project is expected to be finish and I hope there won’t be for a long, long, long time. (At least until that VR girl turns eighteen.)
I know there’s supposed to be this universal understanding that women don’t watch porn; much less talk about it. Well, contrary to popular belief, women do watch porn (I know I’d never want anyone going through my web history), and we watch a lot. (Or maybe that’s just me.) And we do talk about it. Hence, the reason today’s discovery is some great news for me and tons of other porn lovers out there.
“The internet was created for porn” has been one of the truest statements about the internet since we were first introduced to AOL, some stone ages ago. Since then, the internet’s biggest cash cow has been porn. With websites that give people access to free porn such as Pornhub.com, Redtube, and Hentaistreaming.com (For those of us with “special interests”), it was at one point reported that because of the easy access to porn we have now, the porn industry has actually taken a huge hit–along with a plethora of other problems that have arisen from free porn.

Looking to make the midnight release for Arkham Origins or COD Ghosts? Well, if Ohio Lawmakers have their way, you’d be shit out of luck (or at least taking the bus) if you happened to be 16 or 17 years old. The legislation is House Bill 204, and would require that “drivers with a probationary license would not be allowed to drive without a parent present between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m…with exceptions for work or school activities.”
“This is going to attack what is statistically shown are the weakest spots that make our vulnerable drivers – our 16- and 17-year-olds – most at risk,” said Rep. Rick Perales, a Republican from Beavercreek, who’s sponsoring the bill.
The legislator said driving is a privilege, not a right.
“The fact is, nothing trumps the lives of our young people,” he said.
Yes…the buggaboo in all of this is that we once again have the government coming into our lives and ostensibly telling us that our 16 and 17 year olds are too stupid, or you as a parent are too ineffective, to protect them from harm. Thus, we must put them into a box, or take away their things to ensure their safety.
Sure driving isn’t a right, but is a privilege, yet roads are public and are paid for by tax payers, not just politicians. In an ideal society, where the government doesn’t try to act like our parent, that decision isn’t made by a lawmaker but by a responsible family unit.
The government can pretend like they’re trying to protect us, but in actuality they’re only restricting our ability to develop our own responsibilities and self control. That makes a weaker citizen. What’s next? Regulating what 16 and 17 year olds can and can’t say online…because that’s when they are most vulnerable?
SOCOM a.k.a. Special Operations Command has released a tidy, 80 sec video illustrating what they believe to be the future of the Special Operations soldiers. It’s being dubbed “Talos” (Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit) and if the video above holds true, would turn an already lethal soldier practically invincible to gunfire.

This is the moment I’ve been waiting for ever since we saw what Disney was capable of producing the now-phenomenally successful films starring the Marvel Superheroes. After The Avengers pumped my body with adrenaline for two and a half hours, I wondered when Disney would take these characters off the screen and put them in an immersive, action-packed attraction in one of their many theme parks.
Finally, the day has come. Disney announced their first Marvel-themed thrill ride… For Hong Kong Disneyland? Continue reading “Suit Up, Marvel Fans: Disney Announces “Iron Man” Theme Park Attraction” »
What the fuck?
“Weber Middle School, located in Long Island, New York, has banned hard footballs, baseballs, lacrosse balls and other recreational equipment, as well as some kinds of play, in an effort to help protect students from injury.”
“Some of these injuries can unintentionally become very serious, so we want to make sure our children have fun, but are also protected,” Dr. Kathleen Mooney, superintendent of Port Washington School District, told a local CBS news affiliate.

Think Hot Pockets are the business? Or perhaps you’d just rather eat your shoe…
Regardless, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg who became Snoop Lion who apparently is now Snoop Dogg again, has completely given up his roots as a west coast street rapper in the crips gang in order to sell hot pockets.
Kate Upton proves her schedule isn’t too busy for anyone who is willing to drop a dump truck of money in front of her condo (guessing the latter had more of an impact). Continue reading “Snoop Dogg/Lion and Kate Upton Make a Shitty 5 Minute Music Video About Hot Pockets” »
This week has been a flurry of Pokemon news, and a pure wave of nostolgia for those of us who have played Pokemon since we set out on our own adventures back in 1996. From the upcoming release of Pokemon X and Y, to the news of a Charizard becoming a dragon type, and finally, with the release of Pokemon: Orgins, which focuses on Red’s adventures in the anime. Previously, we had covered what to expect from this amazing series, and finally, the first episode (with subtitles) has finally been released!
For years, it has been a strongly debated issue over the Ash vs Red character within the Pokemon world, and as a fan who has always believed that Red was the far more superior trainer than Red, I was bursting with curiosity as to see how Nintendo and GameFreak would handle this once and for all. For those fans unfamiliar with the character Red (Get out of my sight right now, you sicken me!), he is the original player character who made his debut in 1996, when Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue first dropped. Red would later go on to make a special, guest appearance in the sequel, Pokemon Silver and Pokemon Gold, in a cameo that shocked players all over the world:
As the final test of the player’s skill, atop the fridged mount silver. Continue reading ““Pokemon: Origins” Takes You Back To The Beginning!” »
I have been a diehard Pokémon fan for as long as the franchise has been around, starting with my very first adventure in Pokémon Blue Version in 1998, and over the past fifteen years, have stayed playing and training to be the very best like no one ever was.
I’m definitely no amateur. Over the years, playing through the generations, building up the perfect, balanced dream team for myself (Vaporeon (Water/Ice moves), Serperior (Grass), Plusle (Electric), Charizard (Fire/Flying), and Arbok (Poison/Dark Moves), and when X and Y comes out, I’ll hope to finally complete my team after fifteen years of mixing and matching.
…But wait. Did you notice one of my Pokémon was a Charizard? And did you notice that Charizard doesn’t fall under the Dragon/Fire category like logically, it should? This is something that has left Pokémon fans scratching their heads over for years–moreso than the fact that even though Charizard had wings, and could fly in the anime, prior to Pokémon Yellow, Charizard couldn’t learn fly.
Well, Pokémon (and Charizard) fans, our moment has finally come. We’ve all heard about the new Mega Evolutions, in which some of our old favorites get brand new, kickass makeovers. One of these “old favorites” was none other than Charizard. Fans were stoked when Nintendo revealed Charizardite Y–showcasing everyone’s favorite, orange dragon (not Dragonite!) in a new light:
…But, the type was still Fire/Flying. And you know what? Fans were like, “Okay, that’s cool. He’s not Dragon, but he still looks like a boss.” And continued to wait with bated breath for X and Y to drop.
And then…this happened:
Which caused this reaction for Pokémon fans…
Fans around the world lost it, and understandably so, because come on…look. at. it.
As you can see, Charizardite X (which, one can only assume will be Pokémon X exclusive), has his original design taken from its Shiny form. The design looks far more menacing, and comes with a brand new set of unique moves, and a new Special Ability.
Then we found out Charizardite X…was a Fire/DRAGON type. And all around the world, this happened:
(Or, specifically, this was the gif out of millions that perfectly captured the joy-seizure I, and hundreds upon thousands of fans are having at this very moment.)
So, Pokémon fans, rejoice! Finally, after fifteen long years, GameFreak did it right, and gave us not only a brand new, bad ass version of Charizard–but now, our favorite dragon is finally a DRAGON. Congratulations, Charizard–welcome to the big time at last (and a word of advice: Avoid the new Fairy-types).
Do you love gore? Do you love zombies? Do you love feeling as though behind that door is a half-dead, rotting corpse ready to te–ar you into oblivion? How about shooting things? Do you love horror survival games, but feel as though they are lacking in…realness? Do you also happen to live somewhere in California?
Well, look no further. Allow me to introduce you to Operation: Biohazard; the unique, real-life experience of hunting and killing zombies, hosted by the National Airsoft Magazine. Continue reading “Operation Biohazard: The ULTIMATE Zombie Hunting Survival Game” »
There’s no words for the amount of joy I experienced at hearing that everyone’s favorite Witch of the Wicked Weaves is getting her own anime. That’s correct: Bayonetta will make her big screen debut in anime form this coming November, being released in Japan, in ten select theaters, for a two-week run. However, is that joy wholesomely justified?
Let’s take a look at what made Bayonetta so successful as a game, and discuss how that this movie will stay true to the original plot of Bayonetta, while also doing it justice as it makes it transition onto the big screen. Bayonetta had more than just a head-turning protagonist: The game is rife with heavily religious undertones, deep, cultural impact, a new spin on how you see Witches, and the different arcana that Bayonetta had at her disposal, including the fact that her hair was a source of her power (Similar to the old bible character of Samson). The themes of Earth, Heaven, and Hell are prominent, including a rare glimpse into that world where Bayonetta’s powers come from. Moreover, Bayonetta herself took the “typical” female protagonist and spun that archetype on it’s head: Bayonetta is not only exceptionally tall, but her attitude is that of both loving, sensual, and somewhat of an antiheroine as well. Continue reading “How Should We Feel About Bayonetta as an Anime On The Big Screen?” »
Analogue: A Hate Story, is an incredible work of art with Manhwa-styled characters, designed and written by the very talented Christine Love, a Canadian visual novelist who has received countless praise for her works known as the Love Conquers All game series, including, Digital: A Love Story (2011), don’t take it personally, babe: it just ain’t your story (With the title stylized in all lower-case letters, 2011), Analogue: A Hate Story (2012) , and it’s sequel, Hate Plus (2013).
Most Visual Novels run through a basic formula: You are slowly introduced to the characters, including your own, and what the world in the story is about, as well as the plot. You interact with the characters, often being asked questions (in that they are multiple-choice), with your responses being what will set the story down individual paths, leading to different endings of the game for better or for worse (IE: “Good Ending”, “Normal/Neutral Ending”, “Bad Ending”…Well, bad if you’re a straight dude playing the game, but funny as all hell if you have a great sense of humor), and “REALLY Bad Ending”).

Radio DJ Floyd Blaikie was getting bullied by people who alledged that her food allergy was an eating disorder.
“…trust me if I could eat pizza I would eat it for every meal every day. Yeah (the bullying) can be a little bit harsh, especially as a female in the media,” said Blaikie.
Instead of allowing the negativity to seep more negativity, Blaikie channeled it into a campaign to do good. Basically, she reached out to twitter and encouraged people to do good deed and tweet her back using the hashtag #hugsnotshrugs.

First they gave us expansion packs. Then it was DLC. Now, it’s ALTERNATE UNIVERSE Downloadable Content that revamps the core mechanics of our favorite games into different settings and aesthetics. And personally, this is one trend I’m a big fan of and would love to see more games take for a spin.
But Far Cry 3, Assassin’s Creed 3, and Bioshock Infinite (3?) aren’t enough. With this week’s announcement of the Burial at Sea DLC for Bioshock Infinite, I talked to some of my fellow gamers and came up with a list of awesome alternate universe DLC I’d love to play for some of gaming’s most notable titles.
