Hatsune Miku appears on Letterman to awkward applause

Sega’s “virtual idol,” Hatsune Miku, appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman last night to promote an art show featuring the character and the upcoming release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd. After her performance concluded, Letterman engaged in a short conversation with the computer-generated character and he… wasn’t happy. Letterman looks ready to start screaming about how stupid the whole thing is and clearly just wants it to be over. See it for yourself in the video above.

“Hatsune Miku Expo 2014″ will be held at the Wallplay art gallery in New York City beginning today and running through October 19. The exhibit will culminate in a two-night live concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom on October 17 and October 18. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd will be released for the PS3 and Vita on November 18.

Daily Scoop: October 8, 2014 – Gaming weather

It’s fall all right, and it’s the perfect weather to cuddle up under a blanket and start a brand-new game. I’ve been trying to figure out which game to start next, but it’s really a hard decision with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel coming in less than a week. I don’t want to ditch another game as soon as I’ve started it. So many hard choices…

Speaking of hard choices, there are lots of great deals happening today! The first is the Steam Daily Deal, which is 40% off early access to Carmageddon: Reincarnation. It’s on sale today for just $17.99.

There are some new bundles as well. There’s the Humble Mobile Bundle 9, in which you can pay what you want for Siberia, Neuroshima Hex, and Bardbarian: Golden Axe Edition. If you beat the average, you can unlock Leo’s Fortune, Out There, and First Strike.

Then there’s the new Indie Royale spread, the Debut 19 Bundle. Beat the average to get Bionite: Origins, Cafe 0: ~The Drowned, Towers of Altrac – Epic Defense, Castle, Hard Lander, Barter Empire, and Realm of Perpetual Guilds.

Watch This! Every Game Boy title screen in alphabetical order

He did the NES… Then he moved on to the Super NES… Now, YouTube user “NicksplosionFX” has created a video that depicts the Start Screen of possibly every Game Boy game in existence. A few may be missing as NicksplosionFX admits, “It was really difficult to find a complete list of original Game Boy games.”

The video runs nearly three hours (starting with the infamous 4-In-1 Funpak), so I’d recommend starting with a bathroom break first.
