Videogame Nonsense Trifecta: Red Dead Redemption, Pac-Man, Metal Gear Solid


? Red Dead Redemption is just about murdering nuns; it’s also about bizarre glitches with hilarious effects. Enjoy the Birdmen of the Wild West above, then head over to Gamma Squad for a couple more, including the amazing Donkey Woman.

? Remember how Google made its logo into a playable version of Pac-Man last Friday for the seminal game’s 30th anniversary? Reports say that 4,819,352 hours were spent playing it, to the tune of about $120,483,800. That’s fucking awesome.

? Also awesome: This Japanese commercial for the PSP Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker game, found by Japanator. There’s absolutely no way knowing what they’re saying could make it any better.
