Behold the Ancient 8 bit NES

I had one of this a long long time ago. Countless hours were spent on sending Mario and Link venture forth to rescue their respective princess, enduring a thousand deaths along the way in a time when things were much simpler

Gamer Weds Game Girl

Apparently some dude from the land of rising sun (read: Japan) got so into a girl - yes nothing new about that - but here's the kicker - she exists only in a dating stimulation game. If that doesn't spell 'Otaku' (Japanese for geek), we don't know what does.

But then again, there're Otakus who created OS-Tans (personifications of Operating Systems), who are usually girls, so much so until Microsoft officially created their own Nanami Madobe character for their latest Windows 7 for Japan to cater to this 'fetish'. You can read more about her over on our BrickTech post here.

The main difference with this gamer who's into this girl in a game is that - wait for it - he's going to marry her! Yes, you heard that right! Read more about it here!

Publicity stunt or "true love"? Either way it might be hard for people to tell which is sadder. Go check out the tale of virtual Nene Anegasaki from Love Plus, and how she's the bride-to-be for that Nintendo DS otaku's fantasy. It doesn't get any weirder - coming from Japan. Or can it?
