So you can see the whole video blog in motion announced check out and and -- -- do we naming contest for two they didn't have a name for this spider bots that he can submit your -- to name and name and a -- Ideas but there's -- -- losing -- I am. Another. -- light among columnists like this block of stories the retro block yet retro wind -- because. Converse is actually releasing in Japan. A version of these. Once aren't both tops with Mario -- and that the star from Mario Brothers on the side he should be seen them. Only in Japan. Apparently then you know at an undisclosed price at an undisclosed time. -- -- As pretty as -- and -- and a -- Iraq the lack here and now. And in. As much of that I -- I want them against a collector output on the shelf -- I -- I had them I would feel camper. Mike I would -- like there's so late and -- no late. Adolescent. Lake I would feel. Like a letter asked walking past the school -- you -- you know. And never thought of it that way I'm doing well as the acting against Muslim or sent to these issues -- but -- -- is normally. I would that I would limit on a shelf. You could do it. But what I would deal has -- next -- Be back to the future hover board. It's got a lot of traction on crave -- pad and but now they're actually coming out with -- -- -- -- well -- prop replica. Of the back to the few records to. -- -- -- -- Yes so -- announced that they toy fair this -- and -- that they're finally releasing a cover art. -- -- -- That it doesn't have a -- there a July aids -- -- flagged over most surfaces Hao was doing as -- I don't have to I was and I -- Figure that out but I am not gotten in there. I am but you know meaning out there including neon colors and a little more -- you know Michael J. Fox -- in the play ripped off -- him alarm for all. They're taking pre orders starting march 1 through the poignant and and -- with expected to date of November December 2012 but. If they have to receive a minimum number of pre orders in -- go to production because of the high cost item. Still. This and. Should kick started this and then you can tell them I have yes he can really get it and -- -- utility. And they have not released pricing information it's. And they should do the bundled with the night you with a -- -- and and like some kind of garbage -- through that can help fuel your car yes. You can be I think it's an -- but there's a replica that you can -- hand in hand. This very thing that they can't watch clips -- -- it. Recent change it and put it at if it. Pretty great on this has been a pretty good week -- Let's. Venture. Even without Eric. -- and we do this okay into the world's most. Don't don't -- over the Holland -- no right at the. It is very important we get a lot of Xbox and plain rumors -- around. Somehow the 360 seems a little long in the tooth even though they did this and the remakes of it -- the price lowering of Dayton the connect connecting -- yes. And you on Xbox 120. And one of the latest rumors for is that it will have a touch screen. Remote. I have mixed feelings on its one outlet where -- Concerns and it -- the -- CD part of me knows that. The Xbox controller I have in my house -- probably one of them is -- ground zero for whatever kind of Ebola break out at him. Okay right -- yet it's got the bid to -- -- when president and Mike. Just hours of nerd aggression having -- all greased over the years -- yet on that amount now. And -- marrying. That to my other part of my life which is using touch screen -- day. To review tablets may I know that those things turn into -- just a greasy and -- mess shared and used them via. And putting them together. It would just make this thing look like -- at -- double. It would reveal how truly disgusting these things really are the best thing going for -- current controllers designed -- that. The matte black plastic kind of does I doubt that idea that the nasty -- The touch screen who -- in the. But on the other hand the end. Would it be -- that detect an annual. Make I don't -- and I know that the new Nintendo -- so as -- how the big -- dream that we it'll and you. I still don't -- still don't see it I feel like. The best thing about a physical controller is the actual physical lens and then you're not looking at it while you right -- used -- -- it -- be kinda cool and a few differences in a deal to -- -- targeting on and the controller while you're playing it. I -- it cease and use cases on that but mostly I just want. I control here I -- but -- maybe -- old school. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- is is this gonna bring about the price of these things and of course you know you're gonna need them for the whole family in bank. And that can't have you kids over the control and actually yes can do the targeting. And a the vehicle but. And not been.
