A confession: I am not much of a phone games kind of guy. Not much of a podcast guy either. What do I do on my commute, you ask? I either stare silently into the middle distance like a psycho or use the New York Times crossword app, also like a psycho.

But my aversion to mobile games didn’t stop me from downloading — and devouring — the first installment of the game franchise The Room (no relation to the film). Now, a week later, and knee deep in the third chapter, my terrible obsession with these games has reached a fever pitch that shows no signs of subsiding. Now, I’m going to burden you with the same thing.

The Room is, on the surface, a relatively simple puzzle game. You move between various scenes and try to uncover the intricate requirements and mysteries contained in each room. Sometimes you have to open a box. Sometimes you have to find the missing piece of a torn photograph, sometimes you have to attach a cannon to a little model ship. None of that, though, is as easy as it sounds.

Perhaps the best time I had playing The Room, and a good demonstration of its fiendish mechanics, comes in The Room 2, about halfway through the game. Before you stands a tarot deck and a mysterious device. On the far end of the room, a desk with a typewriter on it. To its left, a bookshelf. At one point, having fixed the device, the typewriter, and unlocking the bookshelf (all difficult endeavors in themselves), the game requires you to find and write cryptic phrases into the typewriter, which in turn then reveals which tarot cards to feed into the device. It would be tedious if it weren’t so fun, and impressive in just how interactive nearly every item you can find in this game becomes.

On top of that, a perverse, dark, mystery element hangs over the entire thing. Mobile games, by their required nature, only move in one direction. There’s not much room to choose your own adventure. As you move inexorably towards the conclusion of each game, you’re implored repeatedly to stop; that no good can come of moving ever onwards to the end. Of course, you ignore this advice, since it’s so damn fun. Each game ends on a depressing but intriguing note, and each new chapter draws you further into the darkness.

Go play the room, is what I’m saying, I guess. You can buy the entire series on Steam (Windows only), the Google Play Store, or the App Store right here. Don’t say you weren’t warned:

The Room, $0.99

The Room Two, $1.99

The Room Three, $3.99

The Room: Old Sins, $4.99

When news broke on Monday afternoon that Stan Lee had died, it only took a few minutes for lengthy obituaries to hit the internet. Lee would have been pleased. In a 1995 appearance on the Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Lee talked about his past career as a freelance obituary writer (yes, seriously), and revealed how they get those obituaries up so fast.

Just before the Black Friday and holiday shopping rush, we’ve found maybe the ultimate gift (for a loved one or even just yourself) this year: The actual watch from the movie Jaws. It’s gorgeously vintage with a modern build, and it’s on sale right now on our favorite lifestyle shopping site Huckberry.

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

The world changed forever on October 28, 2014, at four in the morning, but most of us wouldn’t know it until almost a week later.

When Adult Swim debuted Too Many Cooks in that early morning time slot, almost no one thought it would find an audience. Within a week, the surreal 11-minute parody of a ‘90s sitcom theme song had racked up over 5 million views on YouTube and earned public praise from the likes of Zach Braff and Star Wars director Rian Johnson. (In the years since it’s pulled in another 15 million streams on YouTube, and that’s not even counting all the parodies, explainer videos, and unofficial rips.)
