4) From Japan:
http://www.destructoid.com/acquire-s-underwear-game-is-akiba-s-trip-a-vampire-game-192312.phtml - Looks like the game Acquire has been teasing with random boxer shorts laying around Akihabara is actually a Vampire-focused, action/adventure title based in the electronics area of Tokyo.  Weirdness!  Especially this screenshot (is what I think really what’s happening here?!): http://destructoid.com/elephant/photo-m.phtml?post_key=192312&photo_key=167351

Contest!
Box of Random Crap!  You’ll get a box with up to 5 random craps in it.  Like it or don’t like it; it’s not our problem! ^_^  

We’re taking a page from Woot.com’s book, and making three random BOC’s available out of our own stash of crap.  Something valuable may be in one of the three boxes, but who knows?!

To win: write us an email and make up some crap about something.  We’ll pick a winner based on creativity.

NOTE: You will be disqualified if you include glitter in your email.  Don’t do it.

“It’s a TRAP!”, exclaimed random actor number one.
To which Lucas replied, “No no no!  The line is ‘It’s a SNACK!’  Somebody get him out of here... NEXT!”
