A BRIEF HISTORY OF VIDEO GAMES
With the advanced controllers today, it’s hard to believe at one time we played for hours with nothing but a joystick and a button. There was no thumbstick. There was no haptic feedback.

Before the next session where your 8-year-old niece or nephew or neighbor owns you at Fortnite, gird your loins quite literally with retro pride with these Pac-Man Boxer Briefs. These three pairs of unders come with a Pac-Man tin so you can show off your fandom without dropping your trousers. Bonus.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
