Tired of looking at the best stuff to come out of the Consumer Electronics Show? Want a little more fun in your life? Well, here's a sampling of stuff you can't believe anyone even thought of -- a stupendous-sized game controller, how to wear a smartphone on your head and a company that thinks you would pay to play tic-tac-toe.
In this obviously doctored photograph, respected Wall Street Journal writer Walt Mossberg is seen holding a suspicious item. No, it's not a wireless microphone. It's sure not a new iPhone. And why did we go to all the trouble of creating this graphic?
It seems like few games today are difficult enough to have the humbling experience of dying near the beginning of the game. With the game I’ve been playing lately, they’ve taken it one step further. The very first thing you see in the game is a shot of your corpse. Like it or not, you’ve died, even before getting started. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is not about whether you can survive, but how you use the afterlife that is given to you.
It's Winter 2011! For some of us, that means freezing half to death and shoveling snow. It's also time to take a look at the new Anime offerings of the season. You can't watch every show that's out, so ESH is doing the dirty work for you. What's worth your time?
I remember seeing a trailer for Gosick, but I couldn't figure out what it's all about.
I didn't expect it to be quite so silly, nor did I expect it to be a show about crime solving. By crime solving, I don't mean actual deducing by a young detective like Jimmy Kudo from Detective Conan. I mean mystical, magical crime solving which requires no hard work at all.
I shouldn't be surprised that a show that calls itself Gosick (which is the broken English pronunciation of Gothic) to not play by normal rules. Gosick is all about this cute little girl (yes, ANOTHER anime with a cute little girl) who can solve crimes like nobody's business. She is locked up in this estate, barred from the outside world, until a young man comes into her life.
I will tell you that I think having magical powers to solve crimes doesn't sit well with me. I think it's cheating! I do like how Gosick looks, and I appreciate its silliness. I was under the impression that this show was going to be about beautiful European architecture and super-serious subject matter. NOPE! It's about a little girl who rolls on the floor, a kid who has to walk up the stairs instead of taking the elevator, and a dude with a phallic hairdo.
Who is the ideal audience? People who say they'd like to travel, but haven't yet.
Watch more? MAYBE

In my early childhood, my siblings had a lot to do with how my taste in movies was shaped. One of my favorites, still to this day, is Back to the Future. When Telltale announced they were going to make a new adventure game that extends the beloved series, I was understandably cautious, but still very excited. When the game launched in late December, I took the plunge and now I’m in it for the long haul. How do I feel about my purchase, being a long-time fan of the series? Read on to find out.
