Real world problem… Santa brought you a brand new PS4 or Xbox One for Christmas, and sitting down with your family for meals will only cut into your playing time. Christmas Tinner is here to help.

Brought to us by GAME, the can contains nine layers of delicious festive fare and conversation avoidance. Start up top with breakfast (scrambled eggs and bacon) and, as your day of gaming continues, work your way down until you hit the Christmas pudding. Best. Christmas. Ever.

The Greatest Animated Donkey Kong Wedding Cake That You’ll See Today

donkey-kong-cake

If you’re reaaaallly into Donkey Kong, and you have the most understanding of fiancees, perhaps a Donkey Kong Projector Cake is right for your wedding. Sure, you could just have a cake artist pipe on some ladders and barrels, and create a cake topper of Mario and Peach — but Mario wouldn’t actually climb the tiers.

The animated cake is brought to us by Posh Entertainment, a DJ and lighting company, and Meals for Reals who actually made the cake. Quarters up if you want a slice.

Hot Pepper Gaming: Reviewing Video Games After Eating a Hot Pepper

Picture 3

We’re not sure why this is so much fun to watch… Perhaps it’s the insightful and detailed review of a video game, or the host’s dedication to their craft. No… It’s the hot peppers.

Hot Pepper Gaming is a video series in which a video game is dissected and reviewed, but not before the host chews and ingests an excruciatingly hot pepper. Check out a few reviews, perhaps pick up the game that the host suffers for, and get these people some milk for cripe’s sake!

Please watch our host, Erin, review Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance while a habanero burns away at her innards. Please enjoy.
