Clickable: 8-Bit 'Glee' Interactive on YouTube (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Sep 21st 2010 2:20PM
Weird genius Doctor Octoroc is the musician and animator who designed the interactive YouTube experiences '8-bit Twilight' and '8-bit Dr. Horrible.' Since 'Glee' inspires the same kitsch-love as his first two, the Doctor's newest project makes perfect sense. Still, the experience is every 8-bit as fun as the others, especially for TV fans.

'8-Bit Glee' looks and sounds like an original Nintendo game. When the first episode or level is over the viewer is asked to chose which direction you want the story to take. It's similar to a choose-your-own-adventure book. Choose wisely and the story continues. Choose poorly and the story ends in defeat.

The better you know 'Glee's' storyline, the further you'll get in this game. We're unsure right now how many different ways it can go since the videos are all uploaded on different YouTube accounts. Click forward to watch the first one and start the experience. Please let us know in the comments where you got to and which levels are your favorite.

Family Feud and The Simpsons on the iPhone

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 27th 2009 1:05PM
With the invention of the App Store, it should be no surprise that game versions of various television properties would appear on the iPhone and iPod Touch. I have managed to get my hands on two of them (Family Feud and The Simpsons) and offer a brief review of each.

Family Feud - This game is a wonderful recreation of the environment of the game show it's based on, right down to the camera pans. The big difference is that one has to type any of the top-however-many answers rather than speak them, so it's best if the player have excellent spelling skills. Currently the game is on sale for $2.99 in the App Store.

Cartoon Network lets Clone Wars fans design online games

Cartoon Network's Clone Wars Video Game Creator lets fans design their own games.If there aren't already enough Star Wars video games for your liking, you can make your own with Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars Game Creator.

With the animated action show continuing to draw big numbers on Friday nights, its home network is serving up a chance for fans to build their own Clone Wars game and share it with other gamers.

According to the network, these game creators aren't a stunt to generate TV show buzz. The Ben 10: Alien Force Game Creator posted more than 630 million game plays since it went live a year ago, with more than 4.6 million games created by online visitors.

Once fans open their game creator, they choose their character (Anakin Skywalker, Captain Rex or Cad Bane) and their vehicle (AT-TE, AT-RT or Speeder), allowing nine different combinations of character abilities and vehicle powers.

Review: Friday Night Lights - In the Skin of a Lion

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 12th 2009 1:10AM
friday_night_lights_nbc(S04E03) There's so much that's right about Friday Night Lights this new season that it probably sounds like I'm overdoing it with the positive notices. However, the way they've shaken up Eric and Tami's life together in Dillon has been terrific.

The gerrymandering for the town, sending Eric to coach a poor school with a tattered football squad is inspired storytelling. And Tami's not in a better place back at West Dillon because she sent Luke Cafferty to East Dillon, the school he was supposed to be attending. The Boosters are not happy with Tami. Eric's not sleeping. What's going to happen now?

Here's Abrams talking about the issue.

Buffy to be an online game

by Debra McDuffee, posted Sep 5th 2008 8:38AM
cast of Buffy the Vampire SlayerNo doubt about it, the TV viewing world loves Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In fact, there are some of us ... ahem ... who just can't seem to let it go.

Yeah, I just called the kettle black, as I mourn for Buffy like no other show in the history of television. However, now that a massive mulitiplayer online Buffy game has been announced, I am wondering if all the Buffy love has gone just a bit too far.

I could stomach the previous video games, mostly because they weren't purchased by anyone in my household, and I have even been known to read the season eight comic books (which may or may not have something to do with the storyline of the MMO game). Maybe, just maybe, I am wondering if it is time for all of us to just let Buffy rest in peace.

Corey vs. Corey online

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 9th 2008 8:02AM
Corey Haim The Two Coreys just started its second season on A&E. To celebrate, A&E has put together a Mortal Kombat-esque game at their site. You can play as either Corey Feldman or Corey Haim. I choose Feldman and mastered his signature move "Dreamt of Success Smackdown." If you hit forward, down, back, and Z, you blow this pink dust with purple stars right into Corey Haim's face. I won by performed the move about eleven times. Then I finished Haim with a punch. Nice, right?

After I won, I unlocked the "Wooden Stake Attack." I've yet to unlock the "Gas Pedal Crunch" or the "Voodooie." That last one sounds awesome. You can also play as Corey Haim. His signature move is the "Dirty Sock Slap." You have to register at the site for it to record your progress (that is, unless you plan on playing for the rest of the evening and beating the game).

Check out Corey Vs. Corey over at A&E's site. The Two Coreys airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET / PT.

Enter the TV Squad cancellation trifecta game

by Keith McDuffee, posted Sep 17th 2007 9:01AM
canceledEvery year we get a new crop of fall shows to look forward to (or maybe not-so-much), and while some gain a huge fan following and others barely truck along, one thing is for sure -- at least one show will not complete even one season.

Already we've seen that it's possible for a show to be canceled before it even starts, but that won't stop us from holding our annual contest to pick the first new show to get the boot. In fact, this time we're going to give everyone three chances to win. The prizes: $75 Amazon.com gift certificates. Read on for details.

Stephen Colbert to throw ice cream

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 21st 2007 4:24PM

colbert ice creamIf you haven't yet tried Stephen Colbert's AmeriCone Dream ice cream from Ben and Jerry's, you should. It is the most "just okay" ice cream you'll ever taste. Your tastebuds will be bombarded with a cavalcade of average, middle-of-the-road flavor.

Okay, so AmeriCone Dream never did much for me. I'm more of a Phish Food man, what can you do? However, on July 7, Colbert will be doing something Phish has never done: he'll throw the first pitch at a RiverDogs baseball game in Charleston, South Carolina (his hometown). He won't be throwing a ball, however, he'll be throwing a pint of AmeriCone Dream. I'd like to see the entire game played with a pint of ice cream, but that probably won't happen. Jerry Greenfield, the "Jerry" in "Ben and Jerry's" will catch the pint. Let's hope he does, because I'm pretty sure getting conked in the head by a pint of frozen ice cream is kind of painful, especially if one of those waffle cone shards get wedged in your eye.

In addition to tossing his ice cream, Colbert will also sit in on the radio broadcast during the game.

TV show scramble game (it's fun!)

by Adam Finley, posted May 26th 2007 1:01PM

diff'rent strokesOkay, here's a little game I created for y'all.

I've created anagrams from the letters of thirty different TV show titles. Your job is to unscramble the phrases below into the names of actual TV shows. I've tried to make it challenging by including shows of all kinds from the past and present. I'm not offering any hints, but some should be easier to solve than others. My goal is to not have someone solve all of them within ten minutes of me posting this.

Oh yeah, and you won't win anything. Actually, I take that back: you'll win a mute, invisible, peppermint goat who will magically appear directly behind you once you've solved all thirty.

CBS snags Ferguson for new improv show

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 16th 2007 9:36AM

cbsCBS has plans for two new reality/game shows, one about real people who make announcements via huge dance numbers, and a new improv/sketch comedy game show (hosted by Craig Ferguson) of which no significant details have been released just yet. Both shows have been greenlit by the network.

Life as a Song, is a reality program in which people can make big announcements or ask questions (I predict we'll see a few marriage proposals) through an elaborate song and dance number. The series comes from the producers behind Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.

World's easiest theme song quiz

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 13th 2007 3:21PM

bensonI have to say, I expected something a little more challenging from the folks at mental_floss. This TV theme song quiz was pretty easy (I scored 100%).

Okay, I'll admit that I got a couple of them correct through a process of elimination. If you had walked up to me and started playing the theme to What's Happening?, I wouldn't have been able to tell you what it was. I was too young to remember What's Happening?, but not too young to remember the syndicated spinoff What's Happening Now?, although I don't know how the theme to that series went, either, which is probably for the best. God knows I've spent many a night slamming my head in the oven door to erase any memories of The New WKRP in Cincinnati, also.

Anyway, go take the quiz and then come back here and let me know how you did.
