Tomorrow is the big day. We finally get to see the iPhone 6 and will hopefully also get a peek at the future of Apple's wearable tech. Apple fans will be live blogging, chugging coffee, and refreshing like mad throughout the day feasting on information, but before you get started make sure you hav...

When I go to Subway, I usually get a toasted footlong of the Spicy Italian variety on honey oat bread, with pepperjack cheese, lettuce, onion, green peppers, tomato, banana peppers, jalapeno and the Chipotle Southwest Sauce. How about you? What do you like? I ask because there was a Subway resta...

Technically the last day of summer is September 22, but the weather already feels like it's turning and we won't have another three-day weekend for quite a while. This holiday feels less about sleeping in and more about frantically trying to have as much outdoors fun as possible before the chill o...

PAX Prime is just around the corner. Heading to Seattle next weekend? Perhaps we'll see you on one of the many panels we'll be part of. Or maybe you can just bump into us on the floor. Either way, be sure to say hi. And if you're not going to PAX Prime, well, that's what the internet is for! And he...

Aliens: Colonial Marines was a disaster. I think we can use that word, right? Development took forever and thanks to it being a terrible game that looked and played nothing like the previews shown, resulted in a lawsuit against publisher Sega and developer Gearbox. Yet this is hardly the first time...

Physical space can be a precious resource, I've recently discovered. See, I just moved from the second floor of my apartment complex to the first floor, and while the ability to walk outside with just the slide of a door plus the ease of having a yard (small though it may be) for the dogs are both ...

Okay, I admit it: the other day, I finally succumbed and pre-ordered Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes. Something about the look of the figures based on Guardians of the Galaxy and the villainous Loki really grabbed my attention, and made me long for the days of walking down the aisles of a K...

There's quite a bit of news oozing out of San Diego this weekend thanks to Comic-Con 2014. While only some of it is video game-related, why limit yourself when there's so much delicious, nerdy news to be enjoyed? We've seen Game of Thrones bloopers, posters for Ant-Man, new teaser images of Batman ...

The beta for Activision and Bungie's sci-fi epic Destiny started earlier this week for PlayStation owners, and it won't be long before those wielding Xbox controllers are able to jump in and enjoy the fun. I myself have played just a handful of hours as a Warlock, blasting Fallen left and right wit...

Earlier this week, I took a bit of a mini-vacation. Nothing big or expensive, just a day-trip to see Grandma and jump in the lake with the puppy, Balto. I also got to eat at my very favorite restaurant, and stuff my face full of spicy tacos topped with plenty of lime juice and extra cilantro. Mmm! ...

Happy Sixth of July, everyone! What's the occasion, you ask? I don't need an occasion, because I've got freedom. Why, just this morning I ate grilled steak and eggs, and I wasn't even grilling for a family get-together. Mmm, delicious. How did/do you celebrate freedom, though? Did you manage to ...

*Entering the hallowed Joystiq chambers, you see before you several doors, each labeled with glistening, hand-carved marble letters. You open the one marked "Webcomic Wrapup" and enter. There you find Weekend Editor Sam Prell, curled in fetal position, rocking gently and muttering to himself. You l...

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary / Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore / While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a beeping / As of some one notifying, notifying me of things in store. / 'Tis some text message,' I muttered, 'keeping me awak...

You ever had a dog? I've had several throughout my life, but most of the time, they're already adults when I get them. Puppies are a whole other bag of worms - sometimes literally - that I generally find to be too stressful. Case in point: while my 8-month-old husky/lab mix previously slept in unti...

In case you were planning on showing up for work on Monday, consider this your early warning that we're smack dab in the middle of Memorial Day Weekend. Ostensibly a day of remembrance for fallen soldiers, Memorial Day is better known as a handy excuse to visit the beach and grill various fatty mea...

Here in Portland, Oregon, our weather forecasts alternate between "rainy" and "rainy enough to spawn a race of bipedal fish people." Yet, somehow, it's currently 70 degrees, sunny and the only clouds in the sky are localized around our copious "blown glass retailers." Despite this natural beauty, h...

Regular readers will know we here at Joystiq love our puns. Thus, we heartily endorse and support the holiday that is May The Fourth - a day that not only celebrates one of pop culture's greatest nerdy creations, but is also a fine play on words on its own! On top of those reasons, I personally hol...
