The company has released an update today which adds tournament modes and the ability to post video replays to YouTube.

When the first trailer for Pixels hit I was worried that the movie was going to be a "steaming pile of cinematic garbage."

Honestly -- if you're super into Donkey Kong and quilts (yes and yes), it's also probably likely that you're... well, single. But take cozy comfort with this specimen of craftsmanship for a cool $450 -- or you can always buy a $9,000 sewing machine to help you make your own. [Via Geeky Gadgets]

When we first embarked on our blogging careers, fresh-faced and full of hope, there were titles that we never expected to use. "Christina Aguilera's blasphemous Donkey Kong art," it's fair to say, was one such example.Yet the world moves in mysterious ways, and so here we are, blogging about how po...
