Japanese Videogame Will Break Your Arm

- courtesy of G4tv

Japanese arcade arm-wrestling simulator Arm Spirit is being recalled from game joints across The Land of the Rising Sun because it broke three players' arms.

I want you to think about how awesome that is for one minute. The videogame actually breaks your arm. And for some reason, they want to recall it. There is no justice.

"We think that maybe some players get over-excited and twist their arms in an unnatural way," a spokesman for the game' manufacturer said.

Arm Spirit players advance through ten levels, pitting their strength against a French maid, a drunken martial arts master and a Chihuahua dog before reaching the final challenge - a professional wrestler.

And it will break your fuckin' arm.

Rest in Peace MIke Wieringo

Mike Wieringo Passed away yesterday due to a Heart attack at the young age of 44.

I personally did not know the man but I've enjoyed his work for years now.
From his work on the Flash, Spiderman & Fantastic Four comics to his own
Indie book Tellos.

His style stood out among the many talented illustrators who work in his field.

and he will be missed

Here are the first pic of the new SOC GX-39 IRONGEAR from Xabungle. This was the main Ship from the show that carried the crew and mechs around. I remember having a small nameless plastic bootleg of this robotwhen I was a kid, I loved the fact that it use to transformed into a battle cruiser and back and It looks Like BANDAI didn't disappoint, The final product looks nice.
my only criticism of the XABUNGLE SOC line is that I would have liked it if BANDAI gave them more of a Metalic finish like other SOC robots they've put out rather than the "Plasticky" Anime look. Personal Preferences Aside, It looks like it comes with smaller versions of xabungle and Walker Gallia In both Robot And vehicle form along with several support mechs and a hovercraft. A very nice piece if your into the Soul of Chogokin Line.
