If you punch syriangames.com into your web browser, you’ll now be redirected to Syrian Game’s Facebook page, which, while not nearly as fun as their original website, is better than nothing. Still, you won’t find gems like these in their Facebook feed. Here’s five picks for this fine Wednesday:Tweet
If video game consoles were a family, then the annual family portrait might look something like this. Clearly, some platforms have more to be sad about than others. There there, Dreamcast. At least you aren’t the PSP Go.
This is the art of Ry-Spirit, whose decision to have the Wiimote laughing at the Xbox 360′s RROD is cheeky and appreciated.

Let’s pretend for a moment that all the medical claims in this post are actually super-duper likely and not at all hurriedly pulled from someone’s ass. The idea that Aeris was alive and immobilized as Cloud ceremoniously drown her is strangely hilarious. I hope that doesn’t make me a bad person.

MonTowers is a fun little iOS game featuring monster collection and lots of slick anime artwork. The art is very much central to the game, depicting scantily clad beasties that become (and I’m using their words here) “cuter” as they gain in power. It’s not a terribly deep game, but there are a few good tips we can share to help you on your way. Learn more about monster abilities, how to get free tokens, and other helpful hints with our all-inclusive MonTowers Guide.Tweet
The respectable folks at Cheezeburger have compiled a list of the worst video game music of all time. Not wanting you to suffer more brain damage than necessary, we culled the list down so that only the absolute worst (best?) are represented. Are we really doing you any favors, though? Probably not.

“Hey, that cool-looking $9.99 RPG is on sale for just 99 cents! I better get it now!”
“Stop right there!”
“Why should I listen to you, me from the future?”
“I’m not from the future. I’m from the present, and I’ve reached into the past to stop you from wasting a dollar! No one is from the future, you jack ass.”
Heroes Tales, by Chinese publisher Noumena Innovations (BVI) Ltd., is completely broken garbage that looked cool enough to spend a buck on. I’ve tried multiple methods to get it to working (Re-installing, uninstalling, rebooting the app, rebooting the device, clearing the cached files, and even a firmware update), but nothing worked.Tweet
So the story behind this one is a cute one: Mike Mika and his 3-year old daughter often play video games together, and her favorite just happens to be Donkey Kong. After playing as Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. 2, she naturally assumed she could do the same thing in Donkey Kong, and was bummed out to learn you can’t. So, in an act of super daddery, Mike put in a long night and hacked the ROM, replacing Mario with Pauline as the hero. I think a good “Daaaaaaaaaaaaw” is in order.
If you have the ROM and XDELTA, then you too can enjoy the fruit of Mike’s labor and download the Pauline patch here.Tweet
