This is why you should go to Hot Spot.

You find these quirky posters and sign boards everywhere in the magnanimous virtual world of Fallout 3. Owing to the size of the world, it’s quite easy to miss these. But if you stop to look away from flying heads and shiny inventory items once in a while (I know its hard), you’ll find that the developers have quite a sense of humor.

And again. I know all of you are probably getting sick of this. But hey, that’s what makes this funnier. Heh. Just kidding.
By the way, for those of you who don’t already know, Oliver Kahn is a former German soccer team goalie, and a very famous one at that.
I know. “Not this again”, right? There are just so many variations that can be made. Though, this one has an extra epifunny attached – the two mock review snippets in the lower half of the poster. Dasti Daada!
“Awhay Bhayya! My name is Paan (*spits*) and I am not a sup – (*spits involuntarily*) – PHAARI! Samjha geeti, dost? YAAAKH THOO! Yar ek baat mere ko samajh nai lagti. Ye mere bachay mujhe chummi dene se kyun darte hein? THOO! Hein? Bata na?”
Time and time again, Apple has overwhelmed the electronics market with expensive luxury electronic products that attract hype like power does politicians. Tech bloggers all around the world go ‘iCrazy’ when Apple releases as much as an ‘iFart’.
Apple’s relatively recent endeavor to make its products more ‘touchy’ has introduced into the tech world, an arsenal of cutting-edge (unnecessarily flashy and insanely expensive) products such as the iPod Touch, the iPhone and the iPhoneWithBiggerScreen (later named iPad).
And now, Apple has begun a venture into making iProducts tastier. That’s right. Apple’s new notebook, the iChocolate, is edible. Edible!
Dead Space is a extra-gory Resident-Evil-in-space survival horror – I hope that gives you a good enough idea of what the plot of the game is like. Yeah – same old. Though the creatures you get to saw, cut, mince and blow into pieces aren’t exactly zombies. But they’re pretty close.
The game play is different in many ways and very enjoyable to say the least. It would have been even better if the developers didn’t make those damn lifts so slow. I’m pretty sure the lifts take up at least 30% of gameplay time.
The game, true to its genre, is grim as hell from start to finish. There is just one part in the game where the developers seem to have found a sense of humor.

Driving past don’t-know-where in Islamabad, my friends and I decided to have some McFlurry at the F-10 McDonald’s (locally pronounced “em see donalds”) joint. Problem was (locally pronounced “poblum”), we were out of dough (locally pronounced “duff”).
So as my friend stopped at a gas station to get some gas (for his car), I got out to look for a nearby ATM machine. Luckily enough, there was one right beside the station’s quick-mart. As I approached the ATM booth, the reflection on the glass door faded away to reveal a most confusing sight. In the small hollow column inside the booth where an ATM machine should have been was an empty water-gallon and above the gallon was the black and white portrait of a familiar looking man, whose eyes seemed to be staring into my soul. I looked at the sign above. “24-hour ATM”, it said.
“Sure”, I thought. “So how does this work? I go in, show the guy in the portrait my card and ask for money?”
I thought of having a word with whoever was in charge there, telling them to take the misleading sign down and replace it with a new one saying “24-hour invisible ATM”. I didn’t though. It would’ve been a waste of time. He probably would have ignored the advice and blamed the whole state-of-things on the Jews.
So I was sifting through my PC-games’ screenshots folder the other day and found some pretty interesting shots in my collection.
There is a trend that has been growing in newer games that encourages gamers to stop and look around within the virtual environment. One very popular form of this tactic is what you can call the “Dead Man’s Graffiti”. More common to the First Person Shooter and survival horror genre, this trend urges even the most hardcore of gamers to do something that they seldom do – read – even if it’s a dying virtual man’s final message, written in his own virtual blood on a virtual wall. If you ask me, it’s the best thing that has happened to PC games since the Unreal and Half-life engines.
Portal and the DMG:
Speaking of the Half-life engine – following is a screenshot I took while playing Portal (which was developed using the Half-life 2 engine and is, in my opinion, the most entertaining puzzle-oriented game ever). Continue reading
So my friend and I were killing some time in one of my University’s computer labs when, owing to a random search using our trusty old search engine Google, we discovered yet another remarkable source of unintentional comedy the likes of the website where I found the Internate Jobs post.
‘Pakistan’. That is what my friend typed in the search bar. Following is a screenshot of the list of popular searches that appeared as a result.
