What a terrific title!
…and what a terrific premise for a video game:
Fairy tale land has been invaded by the living dead, and it’s up to Little Red Riding Hood and Japanese folk tale hero Momotaro (an unlikely ally if ever there was one…) to conquer the undead hordes using anything and everything they can get their hands on! Machine guns, bombs, ninja stars, grenade launchers, and, I can only assume given the title, flamethrowers?
If our intrepid heroes fail, they’ll join the rest of their zombie fairy tale brethren in an “unhappy ever afterlife!”
(Formerly one of the Three Little Pigs)
The game itself is more-or-less a basic top-down shooter with players using the Nintendo DS Stlyus to move around the screen and attack enemies as they appear…
Here’s a screenshot:

Stumbled onto this animated teaser trailer included with the home version of Street Fighter IV.
It features Ryu, Akuma (Gouki), and … Gouken!

Ah, what will they think of next?
Behold, the “Geekini” by French designer John Nouanesing:
At first I wasn’t sure where the ”Select” and “Start” buttons were located, but upon closer inspection of the first pic, I think I’ve got it figured out…

Limited Soles is releasing collectable, limited edition kicks inspired by three of DC Comics’ most popular characters – Superman, Batman, and the Joker – for adults.
The shoes are made of full-grain leather and come in custom boxes (pictured above) with additional sockbeds.
Individually numbered, the shoes go on sale September 29th and are available in limited quantities. The number of shoes produced will be exactly equal to the year in which the character made his first appearance. As an example, Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 way back in 1938; only 1,938 pairs of Superman shoes will be produced. Batman appeared on the scene one year later, in 1939, and the Joker made his debut appearance in 1940.

I was trying to dig up the latest info on the G. I. Joe live-action feature and came across these lil guys:
Cobra Commander and Snake Eyes are my two favorite ones, probably because they don’t have the visible human features that Duke and Storm Shadow have.
I have to get these! They’re 6 inches tall, made of vinyl, and ridiculously cute!
Apparently, there are Star Wars, Marvel, and Indiana Jones Mighty Muggs Figure Sets as well. Here’s a pic of one of the Marvel-themed sets:
