Thanks to XBox Live, the Virtual Console on the Wii and the bottomless memories of the gaming generation, there exists an endless array of classic games allowing nostalgic nerds to recapture one of the few parts of our childhood that doesn't make us cringe. But those classic games aren't alone. Mixed among them are tons of eyebrow raisers that are bound to make the most twisted minds wonder just what the developers were smoking. You see, one of the great things about places like the XBox indie game store is that anyone can produce and release a game, which also happens to be one of the worst things. We've decided to provide a spotlight for games in which the weird factor goes way beyond a plumber who eats mushrooms. First up "Extreme Baby Maker 2."
Blake Griffin has played in a grand total of 55 NBA games and he's already accomplished something that Kobe, LeBron and D-Wade can only dream of. It's a feat that Magic, Bird and Jordan never imagined and something that Wilt, The Big-O and Dr. J couldn't even conjure. Yes, at the young age of 21, Blake Griffin has posterized Waluigi as a character in a video game. The footage of the massive dunk is below. It comes from the game "Mario Sports Mix," which includes Mario-ized versions of dodgeball, basketball, volleyball and hockey. Think of it like "Mario Kart," but with sports that are a hell of a lot more interesting than car racing.
Sad news this morning for people who prefer playing video-game guitars over real ones: "Guitar Hero," the original fake guitar video game, is no longer. Activision, the company that's made some $2 billion on the game, has decided to stop producing new versions because it's no longer profitable given the enormous licensing and manufacturing costs. The silver lining here is that the company will continue to sell the old games, it just won't be making new ones. That's a huge blow to all you fans of bands that haven't yet received their own version of "Guitar Hero." I know I was personally looking forward to a Hüsker Dü or Flock of Seagulls "Guitar Hero." I heard you had your eyes on a Kenny Loggins version. Now none of those will ever happen.
As we mourn the loss of "Gutiar Hero," I thought it would be an approriate time to whip out a few videos of people destroying their "Guitar Hero" equipment. What will these kids destory now? Won't anyone think of the kids?

Combine video games, '80s nostalgia and a stupid human trick that involves the sound of farting, and what do you get? Our favorite new musical artist since Bangs, The Hand Fart Musician. The musician, who has only revealed his magical farting instruments and not his face, is best known by his YouTube moniker, "UnderHero5." If this man's parents thought that he would never amount to anything, well, they still may be right, but dammit if his incredible series of videos doesn't display one of the greatest useless talents we've ever seen.
For starters, enjoy UnderHero's rendition of "Duck Tales," and check out some more fun below.
Tiger Woods used to have it all: a sterling reputation, a beautiful wife and his own video game. But after banging a bunch of women with breast implants, his reputation was ruined, his wife bid him adieu and now his video game is moving on. When EA Sports releases "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters" in March, the game will not feature Tiger's mug on its cover. In his place will be a picture of Augusta's iconic yellow flag. Ouch. Of course, Tiger isn't being completely wiped from the game, though--his name is obviously still in the title and he'll remain a playable character.
We're trying to think of something that this equates to outside of the video-game world but we've got nothing. So here are a couple hypotheticals that would be essentially the same thing. It's like if Wendy of the fast-food chain was busted for running a heroin ring and her face was replaced with a square patty on all of the company's signs. Or like Oprah getting caught harvesting the organs of her audience members after they pass out from the excitement of being told they've just been given a car. With her reputation obviously ruined, she must be replaced on her show by Ted Williams, the golden radio voice guy. Those two things are exactly what this is like.

Still trying to figure out what to do with all those Best Buy and Walmart gift cards you got for the holidays? First you should use them on some deodorant, then use what's left to buy some of these games that hit store shelves in the last 12 months. In no particular order of course. Agree? Disagree? Let us know.
A 23-year-old man from in South Carolina actually attempted a live-action version of the classic arcade game "Frogger" late Monday night. It didn't turn out well. "Frogger," pictured above, is the game where a frog (the little green figure on the bottom left) attempts to weave in and out of cars to get to the other side of the road.
Only this dope is a human, not a frog, and the cars were real, not pixels. Perhaps because this guy was lacking superior frog-like jumping abilities or maybe because he got scared, he was hit and is now recovering in the hospital. His wounds may heal but there's no cure for his stupidity.
If you're wondering if this guy was just chasing after his wallet, the answer is no. Police say he was talking about the game "Frogger" with his friends before yelling "Go!" and darting into oncoming traffic. Now, if you're wondering whether this guy drunk or if he was dared to do this, the answer is almost certainly yes.
Next time you hear a parent blame violence on modern video games, tell them about the fella who ran directly into traffic playing some silly old arcade game called "Frogger."
