Ryan Reynolds Voicing Detective Pikachu Is So Comically Ridiculous It's Actually Incredible

When we heard that Ryan Reynolds would be the voice of Detective Pikachu in the live-action Pokémon movie we never knew the world needed, we were at a loss for words. Was it some sick joke perpetuated by Ryan Reynolds and the Twitterverse to get our hopes up only to bring them crashing on down at the end? General rationality and reason would suggest such a thing. 

BUT no, not this time. We now have the first trailer for Detective Pikachu, and it is pleasantly absurd. I mean, I'm not so sure I'll be able to get over Reynolds and his iconic snarky voice as Pikachu, but rest assured that I will damn well try. Just enjoy the trailer for what it is: you get the experience of eating a magical edible with Pikachu and Ryan Reynolds in the room with you, without actually eating the edible. A free trip, if you will, so buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Super Mario Odyssey Is A Masterpiece And The Internet Can't Contain Its Excitement

In case you're living under a rock: Super Mario Odyssey releases tonight at 12am EST and the internet is in an absolute frenzy over the game.

Super Mario Odyssey is described by Nintendo as the spiritual successor to the acclaimed Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine titles that released in 96' and 02' respectively. That's right, 64 is 21 years old and Sunshine is 15 this year. Feeling old yet?

SMO has been getting rave reviews across the board and is on track to become the highest reviewed title of all time, which has us absolutely STOKED to get our hands on it.

Those of us who haven't gotten the game delivered to us early still have a few hours to wait (looking at you Amazon buyers). So let's kick back and enjoy some of what the internet has been saying about the game to fuel our personal hype trains.

We're Not Sure How to Feel About Nintendo's Equally Adorable and Bizarre Kirby Lingerie Line

You could say, these undies don't 'suck'. Kirby's definitely rocking a new, slightly more NSFW look than what we're used to.

Genius Kid Won't Take No For Answer From Parents, Builds Amazingly Accurate Nintendo Switch Out of Cardboard

This kid is destined for great things. I'm getting solid Jimmy Neutron vibes here. Wait, Neutron probably would've built one that actually worked and shit, but still, there's an unmistakable amount of brain power being employed here by the lil cardboard-craftin' brainiac. 

I doubt I'm alone when I say that when I was a kid and I came face to face with my parents' tough, stonewallin' verdicts I'd divvy up my reactions between pitching obnoxious fits, or rebelling in acts of sheer stupidity that almost always guaranteed shittier consequences. So, big ups to this little dude. Maybe his parents were swayed to buy him a working Nintendo Switch, after all his hard work.

The Nintendo Switch hasn't had the easiest of launches. While people seem pretty into the system itself, Nintendo has been plagued with dead pixels, controller issues, saving problems, and very few launch titles. Still, the Nintendo 64 lauched with Super Mario 64 and Pilot Wings 64 and people were still pretty psyched sabout it. 

Remember?

But still, you've got to give it up to Nintendo, apparently, they built a pretty sturdy system. I mean, check out this video of someone blasting the Switch with a waterjet at 60,000 PSI. Despite the fact that they cut through the glass and some sort of liquid starts pouring out of the screen, the machine contnues to play Zelda. It's really impressive and cool.

The Reviews Are In: People Are Tasting Nintendo Switch Cartridges For Some Reason and They Are Gross

In today's installment of "What the Hell Is Wrong With People and Why Are They Doing That," people are so excited for the Nintendo Switch that, for some reason, they're tasting the cartridges. 

This all started when video game reviewer Jeff Gerstmann threw one of the cartridges back to see what it tasted like and, poof, a meme is born.

Now, according to Mic, the cartridges intentionally taste bad, as a Nintendo rep points out. The video game-company says, "To avoid the possibility of accidental ingestion, keep the game card away from young children. A bittering agent (Denatonium Benzoate) has also been applied to the game card. This bittering agent is non-toxic."

Well, now other people are trying it out. I hope everyone's happy with themselves.
