This band/video is the perfect mix of charm and randomness. I’m in love.

Also, I TOTALLY want to play angry birds on a trampoline. Holy cow!


The Coolest Phone/DS Accessories: AND CONTEST! [18 comments]

December 7, 2010

Our friends over at Accessory Geeks hooked up Zaxy with some early holiday gifts: their exclusive wood iPod Touch cases… engraved with our site! Freaking amazing.

Kristina shows you hers, compliments of blurry-photo-technology.

The wood cases come in a variety of colors: Dark Rose Wood, Dark Beech Wood, Light Beech Wood, and a variety of other finishes for other products.

These cases look really nice, smell good, and the engraving feature is pretty ridiculously awesome.

And for those of us without iPhones or iPods, (cough, me, cough), they engrave their normal phone cases as well. Here’s me rocking one for my Samsung Vibrant:

I’m a huge klutz with my phone, and I haven’t damaged it yet since I’ve had this case on! (Knock on wood…)

If you need any accessories for your phone (or DS, or iPad, or Wii)… this is the place. They’ll keep you functional and looking good. And they’ve got geek in the name.

PLUS, they love you all. They sent us a wood case for a Nintendo DS Lite or DSI to give away to one of your lovely selves. Just respond to this post with your favorite product from their site. You have until 11:59pm on Sunday, December 12th to enter, which will give you a little less than a week to encourage your friends and family to enter for you as well. ;-)

I’ll randomly pick and announce the winner on Monday, December 13th.

EDIT: You now have until 1pm PST to enter the contest. I’ll be randomly picking the winner shortly after that!

ANOTHER EDIT: We have a winner! Check out this post to see if you won.

You better hope I don’t decide to keep it…

Find something from the site you love? Then make sure you use promo code ZAXY15 to get 15% off all products!
(Excluding amplifiers)

Now go win a DS Case!


Angry Birds: cuddly edition. [1 comment]

August 27, 2010

I am a whole-hearted Android phone user, but, never being one to want to miss out on fun new technology, I also sport my iPod Touch in an attempt to try all the great new iTunes store games (and, you know, to use as an iPod).

I’ll admit a few months back I fell victim to the addictiveness that is Angry Birds.

Well, a few days ago, it was announced that the tiny little iPhone app may develop a franchise. Rovio (the company that created the game) has been trying to find ways to bring it to other mediums, including toys, comic books, a TV show – possibly even a movie. A movie!

Nothing major is confirmed yet aside from the toys, though the toys alone would make Angry Birds the “first major intellectual property to go straight from iPhone to plush form”. I’m wondering if Rovio thinks this will make Angry Birds the next Pokémon. Does it even have the potential to be the next Pokémon? I think being a Pokémon master is a lot more attractive than throwing birds at sickly looking pigs, regardless of how addictive this game is.

I mean, a World of Warcraft movie was one thing. Even the Pac-Man movie speculation didn’t surprise me all that much.  But if a mere 99-cent iPhone application can hit the big screen, then I’m going to wager that anything can.


This is (kinda) Happening: The Jersey Shore Videogame [5 comments]

July 27, 2010

You can run and you can hide, but Jersey Shore will find you. Even if extreme precautionary measures that would reflect a zombie outbreak were taken, you would still not be safe. The echoing words of “GTL” will seek and infiltrate your brain as tanning lotion will seep into your skin. Hair gel will violently extend across your walls in a scraggly, vein pattern and your fist will start…pumping. Pumping erratically, madly.  Uncontrollably.


Long story short, Jersey Shore is everywhere. It now has its own game to promote Season 2. Beginning today for all Jersey Shore fans on Facebook (tomorrow for all others) you can take control of your favorite Jersey Shore reality star, and from the sounds of it, fight with others (surprise!). You can even use deadly weapons such as pickles and suntan lotion. Are you sold? No? Maybe this will get you.

The game will add content and develop according to the events that unfold in each episode.

Still not sold?

Me neither.

Anyway, I’m going to be completely honest and admit that I am not going to play it, so I’m not giving you any more details. Just know this is a thing, and it’s happening.

There is also an app called “Spread Snooki” (for serious) making its way to your iPone very soon.  Apparently you can take photos and put her face in there…and stuff.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I must take my leave as I’m now overwhelmed with the urge to do something productive with my time.


Robot Unicorn Will Attack iPhones This Month [Add a comment]

June 3, 2010

If you remember the game Robot Unicorn Attack that was posted on here awhile ago, then 5 gold stars to you my friend!

The game is a stressful, ultra-fast speed, side-scroller that does all the running for you while you’re smashing your head into star obstacles.

I’ll be honest & just say that I hate this game. I hate this game so much that it forces me to play it over, and over, and over again til I’ve almost caused myself to have a severe panic attack.

*Coming to the iPhone this June!*

But now guess what! Now, not only will you be able to experience a nervous breakdown while sitting on your computer at home, but you can be panic-stricken while walking your dog, while eating dinner with your family, or even while driving!

Yea that’s right, who says being on your phone in your car is illegal?! Oprah?!?!? Pshh.. what does that ol’ bucket know anyways! I can text, sing Justin Bieber & drive drunk all at the same time like nobodies business! (*Please god let them know that was a joke…. I would never listen to Justin Bieber in my car!*)

Robot Unicorn Attack coming to an iPhone near you. This month. For $3.


P.s. Click here to play it!

P.p.s. Don’t drink & drive.


We Rule iPhone App is Way More Badass Than Farmville [3 comments]

May 12, 2010

Yes, jilici0us is my username.

I am obsessed with this game.

I got pretty tired of Farmville after reaching a level 40 and realizing that I was spending way too much time harvesting, fertalizing, plowing, planting and decorating. Who the hell wants a merry-go-round and a full band stage on their farm anyways? I thought I was done, completely finished with all app games, that is, until I discovered “We Rule.”

We Rule is a lot like Farmville in the sense that you make money by harvesting crops, however it doesn’t take you 2 hours and you don’t have to use 3 different tractors with an annoyingly limited gas supply!

In We Rule, you get to create & rule your own kingdom, buy and sell stuff from medieval shops, and decorate and build your own village. So it’s a lot more bad ass than having some rinky-dink old MacDonald farm and conveniently enough, it’s all on your iPhone!

The game is free, however, there is “Mojo” which like FVcash, you can purchase with real life $$. I don’t recommend spending any money on Mojo. Patience is a virtue and you will get Mojo each time you level up.

Try it out & play it!
[We Rule]

Things I like about the iPhone OS 4 [4 comments]

April 8, 2010

Coming Summer 2010 is the new iPhone OS 4!

This system has some pretty cool features, some of which I’m really looking forward to trying for myself when it comes out! (*Nudge!* I’ve officially decided to dive into the Smartphone pool and buy an iPhone!)

First things first, MULTITASKING!

Holy Slackersville, finally! (Sadly that’s not a real town.. I checked.)
Steve Jobs addressed this addition by saying “Now we weren’t the first to this party, but we’re gonna be the best!” (Steve Jobs obviously is big on parties!)

The multitasking platform will look like this: (Photos via Engaget’s liveblog)

Pretty non informative. I’ll wait to see a video before giving my say on the matter.

Also something huge to look forward to is Game Center! Game Center sounds a lot like Xbox live in the sense that it will have a friend network with achievements, interactive gameplay and leaderboards!

Now, about my decision to purchase an iPhone..

I’ve been an old skool kid. I’ve never had a cellphone with any data plan or had any form of mobile internet ever. Heck, I just got my first iPod last Christmas! I’d say that I’m definitely behind the times and the only thing I like about my Blackberry Pearl 8100 is the R2D2 sticker I put on the back of it.

Now with Game Center and Multitasking finally available to the iPhone, I’m excited to finally be “in” with all the cools kids and their smart phones soon! Now I’ll just need some recommendations on what apps & games I should get!


Apple iPhone OS 4 Reveal Tomorrow! (April 8th) [1 comment]

April 7, 2010

What the heck?!?! ..So soon?
I wonder what this model must have in store! It’s got to be good if they are purposefully deterring the spotlight away from their iPad so quickly!
