We're noting that there's a slew of Halloween events happening in the MMO world this month, and it comes as no surprise that Free Realms is getting in on the fun as well with a "Super Spooktacular" Halloween update. This is the topic of the latest "Ask a Dev" video with Associate Game Designer Juli...

Unfortunately, even though I really want "The Hallowed" on my Paladin, he's not quite 80, so going to face the Headless Horseman will be a problem for me. But I may still run around and pick up all of the candy quests, now that they're up and running during Hallow's End. They're only a part of the...

Online retailer Urban Collector has a pre-order listing for "PSP Sours" (pictured above) and will be selling 12-pack boxes for roughly $32. Although PSP Sours is an interesting concept, something tells u...

According to the reader who sent this our way, this candy dispenser looks "exactly" like a Wiimote, except it fires candy out of the spot where the IR transmitter should be. Apparently the instructions suggest that you "Do not aim at face," so... it's kind of like the real thing. [Thanks, Timothy]...

After having the chance to actually get out there and start my Egg Hunting, I can confirm that no, there really isn't anything new for the Noblegarden event this year. That's alright though, it entertained me for awhile, and I know for a fact that the Midsummer Fire Festival has a lot more in stor...

We don't know much about this "Mini Car Candy Toy" set being sold at Play-Asia. All we know is that it's the Official Pokemon Mini Car Candy Toy, meaning all the others you've owned before this point were just crap. We're also not sure which part of these toys are edible. Is it the cars themselves...

Valentine's Day might be all about spending ridiculous amounts of money on crap sharing sweet moments with that special someone, but that doesn't mean that those moments -- and the gifts -- can't be tailored to your specific quirks. If you're blessed with a significant other with a particular ...

This item up for auction on eBay is purportedly a cast of a Nintendo reference model for Mario, used to make sure that all depictions of the character are consistent. However it looks slightly off-model to us. Mario's appearance has changed many times over the years, and this piece doesn't quite see...

If we had to make a list of things that we love, Nintendo and candy would both be pretty high up there. That's why we want one of these Wiimote candy dispensers. Sure, it can't actually be used to play games, but it dispenses candy, and that's the next best thing. Spotted at the All Candy Expo, thes...

Halloween in Japan is apparently pretty cool, at least in terms of the corporate response. Brian Ashcraft from Kotaku showed off this trick-or-treat bag from the Pokémon Center in Osaka. Of course, it's quite a nice bag, with full-color, completely original Pokémon art covering every...

We hope that the candy contained in these little mushroom tins is exceptionally delicious, for two reasons. First, as a default condition, we hope all new candy is delicious, as it should be. Second, everyone who buys this stuff is going to be in a rush to empty out the tin anyway, to display it o...

Bunny twins Shirousa and Kurousa have been charged with making candy for everyone, and as far as ...

A 4' x 4' Jiggly Puff made entirely using Starburst wrappers. Artists Sara and Katherine said it took them a few weeks to complete and further described the horrors and injurious practice of peeling hundreds of Starburst wrappers neatly from the sticky candy. Here's the full gallery. Check out the ...

If you're even considering making a late night grocery run to stock up on post-Valentine's Day chocolate sales, hold your horses. For those who just so happened to keep the original packaging from your Wiimote and nunchuck as any true geek does, or you need a delicious excuse to run out and grab ano...

With four renditions -- each sporting a built-in game, sweet (ahem) sticker pack...

Voting for the Semifinals round of the My Dream App contest ends tonight at Midnight (EDT), and with it, seemingly any chance of Desktop Wars (my original choice) making it to the final round. Digg founder Kevin Rose, Peter Cohen and Jason Snell from Macworld, David Pogue of the New York Times, and ...

The last time PSP Fanboy did a Metareview, it covered another one of my most-wanted games: Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins. It didn't fare too well, with the critics bashing its much-too-high level of difficulty. Garnering only a 73 average, many felt a little disappointed, myself included. [Andrew's not...
