This Teaser Trailer For Cyberpunk 2077 Is Glorious
CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 is about a police force that takes down people who are turned into murdering psychopaths by their misuse of artificial enhancements. Hopefully the game’s as good as this teaser.

If Classic Star Wars Battles Were Mega Man Boss Levels
This is the clever handywork of Ty Lettau and every ounce of my being wishes that this was a real game.
So recently we spotted this fairly cool little hanging dragon over at Neatorama, usually a good source of things a bit out of the norm. I like it! I'm not really one to hang things in any rooms, but I can definitely see the appeal for tossing it up for particular decoration or in a younger person's space.
It touts itself as being rather easy to put together, so it probably isn't much of a challenge even if one is normally all thumbs. I'm a little confused why either Neatorama or the item's creator is adding a feature like "Add whimsy to any boy's room!" though. Apparently someone's unaware of the large amount of female-penned and professionally published dragon-on-lady erotica out there. Not that I'm familiar with any of this, of course. I've just, you know, heard things.
Anyway, while I'm not really inclined to push any business their way after such a ridiculous statement, if you're not so agitated you can pick a kit up for about $12 at the NeatoShop. I'll be over here getting rid of all the dragon paraphernalia of mine and shipping it off to more appropriate owners since I'm not a dude.
