Mean Girls. The Video Game.

This is so fetch.

It’s been 10 years since Mean Girls first hit screens, becoming an instant classic that is as quotable as it is hilarious. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t reference a line from the movie, use a .gif of Regina George to respond to something, note that the limit does not exist, or chastise someone for trying to make something happen that’s not going to happen. This is one of those movies that truly defines a generation.

Today it finally becomes a video game. Cue every gay squee noise I can muster.

Via So Much Drama Studios:

“If You Have Ever Felt Personally Victimized by Regina George, This Game is For You

Designed as an easily accessible ‘tiara-defense’ game, Mean Girls finds the original Plastics at peace with their world, when a new upstart Plastics clique attempts to take control of North Shore High School by piecing together the broken Spring Fling Tiara. Players can select from eight of their favorite Mean Girls characters—Cady, Regina, Gretchen, Karen, Janis, Damian, Aaron, and Kevin, each with their own distinct boost abilities—and all the cliques from the cafeteria, to help defeat opponents and complete each level.”

The mobile “tiara-defense” game is not unlike your standard tower-defender: You place troops, you set up traps, and you keep the oncoming hoards of enemies away from their goal. Only this time around your troops are who you hang out with and the enemies are the opposing cliques.

Comic mean girls

While it may not seem like an obvious genre to slap the Mean Girls name on, it’s actually quite clever. Just as in the original film the cafeteria is a carefully mapped out warzone, with factions ranging from the Varsity jocks to the girls who eat their feelings to the burnouts to the Plastics. And just as Lindsay Lohan’s Katy Herron went to war with Regina George, players will go to war to protect their tiara from those who’d try to snatch it away.

Does this sound like the most fabulous game ever, or does this sound like the most fabulous game ever? Who would come up with such a game? None other than So Much Drama’s Jeff Medor, creator of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis, one of our gayest games of the year two years running. As was the case with Dragopolis, Mr. Meador isn’t trying to make a lazy licensed tie-in game…he wants this to be a product that true fans will enjoy through and through.

Mean Girls is hilarious, brutal, and endlessly quotable; I absolutely loved watching and re-watching the film,” said Jeff Meador, founder and president, So Much Drama. “The game is rich with the quirky humor, over-the-top high school power struggles, and everything from hilarious lines, peppermint foot cream, to, yes, the Burn Book.”

Burn Book mean girls

No matter which clique players belong to, from band geeks and preps to regulation hotties, Mean Girls offers seven different ways to play including gameplay modes such as You Can’t Sit With Us, Social Suicide, She Doesn’t Even Go Here, and The Limit Does Not Exist.”

Mean Girls is slated for release on mobile platforms soon. I bet it will make for a great candy-gram.

And none for Gretchen Weiners. Bye.

Nintendo Direct 1-14-2015: New Nintendo 3DS XL launches February 13th

“Awesome! Wait….what?”

That was the general sentiment surrounding the announcement of the February 13th release of Nintendo’s New Nintendo 3DS XL, the latest in their confusingly named line of successful handhelds, in the US. This latest iteration offers a whole host of new features, from Amiibo support to 3D viewable at any angle to more processing power. The entire backlog of 3DS games will be playable with the new handheld while some games, like the remake of Xenoblade Chronicles, will only work on the New 3DS XL due to its stronger specs.

The US will only be getting the New 3DS XL, in red or black, and not the standard sized New 3DS. This is great for size queens but unfortunate for fans of console customization, as the standard New 3DS offers a whole host of changeable face plates on top of a wide array of color schemes. However for a limited time players will be able to snag either a Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate branded New 3DS XL or a snazzy gold The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask themed one (not to be confused with the the purple, not new, Majora’s Mask 3DS that is also being released.)

As if all of that wasn’t confusing enough, the New 3DS will not ship with an AC adapter included but will be compatible with all existing 3DS AC adapters currently on the market.

Because Nintendo.
