  • Y'all spent 4.8 million hours playing Google Pac-Man

    Good job, everyone. Research firm Rescuetime says y’all spent (wasted?) 4.8 million hours playing Pac-Man on the Google homepage since its launch last week. If we convert those lost man-hours to dollars and cents, then you can say the U.S. economy has lost slightly more than $120 million because of Pac-Man. Read More

  • Pac-Man bookcase sacrifices shelf space to make room for mouth wedge

    Will nobody address the elephant in the room when it comes to this awesomely wonderful Pac-Man bookcase? The mouth wedge eats up (pun intended!) valuable shelf space. But what’s the designer to do? The bookcase could be a full yellow circle to represent Pac-Man’s mouth in the closed position but people would argue, “Hey, it just looks like a yellow circle. Then again if you… Read More

  • Luckily, only 500 of these ridiculous Pac-Man watches will be made

    As a fan of retro game stuff in general, I’m always on the lookout for cool Pac-Man/Space Invaders/Robotron 2084 stuff. Unfortunately, retro game gear isn’t usually very understated. When it comes to watches, I’m more of an old-school guy, but even if I were into cool new watches, I’d probably skip this one. Read More

  • These Pac-Man 30th anniversary Zippos are very cool

    Namco’s Pac Man was first released in Japan May 22, 1980, which means the 30th anniversary of the cult game is a good year away. But if it’s Pac-Man, you can never celebrate too early: Starting in November, Namco Bandai, as the company is now called, plans to sell Pac-Man branded Zippos on the Japanese market. Read More

  • Pac-Man gets festive in Spain

    Wow. This is amazing. I wish it were in NYC, but alas, it is not. This Pac Man pyramid resides in Madrid. Unfortunately, Nicholas is in class and unable to translate for us, but it’s clear what this is. Pretty neat. via Technabob Read More

  • The Unreasonable Stance: Nostalgia aside, Pac-Man still beats Halo in every category

    I don’t know why people even bother with Halo when all it’s done is rip off Pac-Man. Furthermore, even though Pac-Man predates Bungie’s lauded trilogy by more than two decades, it still trumps it in every gameplay area – all retro nostalgia aside. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look at some cold, unyielding facts: Pac-Man controls better. With zen-like… Read More

  • Digital Life 2007: The Mascots

    I have no idea why Popeye and Olive Oyle were at Digital Life, but Pac-Man was repping Namco and looked really happy to be walking around in a hot mascot suit all day. After the jump, Popeye and a dirty elementary school classic. Be warned though, Popeye’s chin looks like a pair of balls, so it may be a little NSFW if your boss is a testicle connoisseur. Read More
