    You’re wrong about one thing: desperate girls do buy and play video games. This is the digital version of that Get-a-date board game (or whatever it was called). It was pretty popular.

    Also, in terms of demographics, the Wii is more popular with women than men. – http://www.wiitalk.co.uk/forums/general-wii-discussion/14866-demographics.html

    This is ridiculous. I can’t believe there’s a video game about this. It’s bad enough this reality show exists, and now women are going to act out their fantasies through a video game?

  3. avatar Anne Pomeroy says:

    I’m not surprised about the Wii demographics. But I still believe that a lot of the people who watch the Bachelor won’t be playing the video game.

    Yeah, not saying it’s a good game…Looks like a complete and total waste of time, but then again, so does Second Life and the Hills and any of the ridiculous drivel pop culture deems gold.

Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time with Finn and Jake Brings Together The Best Of All Things Geeky

Written by

Comments: --

Cartoon shows hardly ever come in such a neat little package of dorky, non-sensical humor. In Adventure Time, Jake the super-malleable dog and Finn the human do battle with an onslaught of silly villains in an adventure video game-like world.

    Two things:
    1: Did anyone else think this looked way too much like a Star Wars chicken walker?

    2: Did anyone else watch the BigDog video and feel like a jackass for being mad at the guy who kicked it? Too much like a real dog, I guess. Cuter than some I’ve seen.
