Pac Man and Pac Man S released for Facebook

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on June 2nd, 2011

Pac Man has been and continues to be one of the most popular arcade games ever. It never gets old. I don’t know how many quarters I fed into that machine when I was younger and I can still go back and play it now and again.

Now Pac Man is headed to Facebook thanks to Namco Bandai Games Europe. You will be able to play the regular version of Pac-Man and Pac-Man S, a version of the game with social functions built in. Get playing and chomp some ghosts.

PAC-MAN is free app of the day on Amazon App Store for Android

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2011

Are you in the mood to play some Pac Man on Android? The app is available today on the Amazon App Store for free. It beats pumping quarters in the machine each time.

The app usually sells for 99 cents. And this is the full game, not a lite version. Just head over to the Amazon App Store and download it now. The game has two control methods, a virtual joystick and a swipe method. I can already hear the music.

Pac Man Arcade Cocktail Table

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on November 28th, 2010

We could all use a retro arcade table that will also entertain our guests and this one is pretty awesome. The Pac Man Arcade Machine Cocktail Table comes with 13 classic arcade games, which include Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Rally X, Mappy, Xevious, Galaxian, Pac-mania, Rolling Thunder, Bosconian, Dragon Spirit and Galaga 88 and Dig Dug.

Those are some classics. And if you want to make some money, just charge them .25 to play each game. Though that might be a good way to make sure these guests never come back.

Voting machine plays Pac-Man

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 22nd, 2010

Voting machines are pretty unreliable and prone to being easily hacked, so it wasn’t that hard to hack this Sequoia AVC EDGE voting machine to play Pac-Man. Pac-Man isn’t all that different from politics anyway. You have one bloated yellow bastard gobbling up all of the wealth and resources, while we all play the ghosts who try to stop them.

The machine has had it’s memory card formatted, installing DOS and MAME. It has had it’s share of rigged votes, no doubt, but now it can right that wrong by providing some fun.

Did Google Pac-Man cost us $120,483,800?

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

Last week, when the Google logo turned into a game of Pac-Man, we all took breaks and played a game or two, or five. Apparently we had to much fun. The theory is that we wasted a combined 4,819,352 hours and a whole lotta dollars.

The Rescue Time Blog made the following calculations based on observations and assumptions about the Google audience. And the numbers assume that while we were playing Google Pac-Man, we should have been doing something productive:

New Google Doodle is a playable Pac-Man game

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 21st, 2010

This made my day. This weekend’s Google doodle, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man, is the best yet. The image is actually a playable 256-level Pac-Man game. Crazy right? Yes. And completely awesome.

It has all the elements of the original game. Just hit the “insert coin” button and you can even play 2 player mode with the WASD keys on your keyboard. Go play now. I can’t wait to see what else Google is planning for their Google Doodle.

Heat Changing Arcade Mugs

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

You can never have too much Pac-Man in your life. Or Space Invaders. Excuse me, “Pac Boy” and “Space Intruders”. You could buy yourself a regular mug featuring arcade scenes, but these mugs from Thinkgeek react to the heat in your drink and actually do things.

For instance the Pac Boy mug starts off with an empty maze, but when you add heat and it gets filled with detail. Same with the Space Intruders mug.

Pac-Man Bookcase: There goes your new HDTV

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on January 31st, 2010

Few things in life are as awesome as Pac-Man. Even though your wife would probably have some major problems with this Pac-Man bookcase, which looks all set to eat up that HDTV. But if you are not married, this is an awesome piece of decor.

This guy is called the “Puck-Man” Bookcase for legal reasons and comes from an Italian design firm, so it probably costs more than it’s worth. I’m thinking it needs some ghost bookshelves on the other walls. Maybe then it will leave your TV alone.

Retro Pac-Man watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2009

Retro Pac-Man watchHows your geek cred? Well, if you don’t own at least one quality Pac-Man item, you are not an official geek. And this Pac-Man watch is a good one to own. It’s half past clyde and a quarter to a power-pellet, or something like that.

It was made exclusively for ClubNAMCO and tells time using ghosts and power pellets. The invisible second is Pac-Man himself gobbling up dots, cherries and a blue ghost as he circles around. How cool is that? Only 500 of these watches are being produced, and each will be individually marked with a serial number. The price isn’t too bad at $129.99.

More classic arcade game lighters

Posted in Lighters by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2009

More classic arcade game lightersBack in July we told you about some cool Pac-Man lighters that celebrate the 30th anniversary of the yellow dot-gobbler. But now we have word that there are more awesome designs being offered.

This limited-edition series of Zippo lighters from Banpresto includes shiny, butane-filled versions of Pac-Man,(Which we’ve seen) along with Galaxian, Xevious and Dig Dug. Each features the likeness of the classic 8-bit game. Even if you don’t smoke, you’ll want these awesome collectibles.

Pac-Man Chair looks hungry

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 10th, 2009

Pac-Man Chair looks hungryA chair in the shape of Pac-Man just makes perfect sense. Especially if your room looks like a maze from the game. It’s only a concept right now, but it’s perfect for geeks and retro arcade lovers.

It makes an artistic statement that says that we are all ghosts when lounging in Pac-Man’s mouth. Or perhaps some of us are ghosts and others power-pellets. Now, if only it could gobble up certain guests on command…

30th anniversary Pac-Man lighter

Posted in Lighters by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

30th anniversary Pac-Man lighterThere are not nearly enough lighters for gamers, so we were stoked to see these 30th anniversary Pac-Man lighters. These Zippos don’t just slap Pac-Man onto the outside either. They feature three pretty awesome designs.

We really dig No. 1 and 2. Our only problem with them is that it took 30 years to give us some awesome Pac-Man lighters. The actual 30th anniversary is next year, but it looks like we are off to a good start.

Darkside Pac Man stapler

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2009

Darkside Pac Man staplerCheck out this Pac-Man stapler from the folks at Panik Design, who call it “Stap Man.” Traditionally Pac-Man is yellow, so we can only assume that this is some Pac-Man from a darkside universe. Hey, between the name and the lack of yellow, they’ve avoided any copyright infringement.

It will cost you $26 and it’s hard to imagine that you’ll be able to resist making wakka-wakka sounds as you staple. It also comes in white. Lame. It looks pretty hungry, so staple away.

Space Invaders and Pac-Man art cars

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on July 1st, 2009

Space Invaders and Pac-Man art carsPimping your ride with new shocks, struts, and a more powerful engine is all well and good, but if it can’t get by on looks alone what’s the point? These art cars are real lookers. These mini Coopers put the geek on the street my brotha.

Who wouldn’t love a Pac-man and Space Invaders themed car? These beauties were designed by Matt W. Moore, who clearly has a love of retro arcade games. This Pac-Man version is the best. Click through to see the Space Invaders car, which also rocks my geek socks.

Pac-Man Coffee Table

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

Pac-Man Coffee TableWhen you have a table as awesome as the Pac-Man Coffee Table, you better use coasters. Or else. This table is all kinds of awesome. It’s really a superbly detailed work of ingenious geek art.

Syd Bolton from Ontario, Canada contacted designer Erin McFadden, who took a plain coffee table and turned it into this. One of the coolest geek tables ever. Now why can we not buy this kind of furniture in stores? You just know that he goes ballistic when his friends don’t use coasters. And I don’t blame him.
