If you’ve got to take the boss’ wife out on the town, as John Travolta’s Vincent Vega did in Pulp Fiction, then where better to go than this “wax museum with a pulse”? At Jack Rabbit Slim’s, you can be served by Buddy Holly (ala Steve Buscemi), enjoy a bloody-as-hell Douglas Sirk steak and a vanilla coke -- or a five-dollar milkshake, if you prefer -- and then show off your moves as you win a Twist contest with the almost-star of Fox Force Five. Don't be a square; head over to Jack Rabbit Slim’s!

New Report Puts Nintendo NX at 10-12 Million Units in 2016

Taiwan-based news outlet Digitimes is reporting Nintendo wants to ship 20 million NX units by the end of 2016.
