Welcome back to Maniac’s Kitchen, where we cook and review lots of different food for gamers. Today, we’ll be sharing an original recipe you won’t find anywhere else!

Everybody loves tuna fish sandwiches but not everybody likes mayo. I honestly don’t like it very much, myself. After a bit of experimentation, I’ve found a great way to make tuna salad without mayo.

Here’s the full list of ingredients you’ll need:

  • A can of tuna
  • Bread
  • Onion
  • Celery
  • Spices
  • White vinegar
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil

The required cooking implements are pretty simple:

  • Knife
  • Mixing bowl
  • Toaster
  • Spoon
  • Can opener

Let’s get cooking, shall we?

April’s Legendary Pokemon at Target Stores This Week April 23, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News, Site Videos.

Between April 22nd and April 30th, Target retail stores across the US will be participating in The Pokémon Company’s Legendary Pokémon distribution. Codes for Legendary Pokémon from previous generations are getting released every month through various means, and they can be redeemed in any of the four Generation 7 titles. The Pokémon you earn from the code depends on the month the code was distributed and what specific title you redeem the code on.

This is not an unusual occurrence, as codes for special Pokémon can get distributed by retail stores like GameStop. GameStop stores are small and it is easy to ask a game advisor for a special code if they have any. However, Target stores are huge and employ a large staff. Where do you go while you’re in the store and who do you have to ask? Well, we went into Target earlier today and got those answers.

Get your code now while they last. You can find out more about this event and keep up to date with the year of Legendary Pokémon right here.

Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are out now exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS platform.

Mind of Maniac – My First Con April 23, 2018

Welcome back to Mind of Maniac, an unscripted series where we discuss gaming related topics. When you break it all down, fan conventions are a great way for people to socialize with others who share similar interests. We’ve been attending conventions for over a decade, and with Con Season starting back up, I feel the time is right for me to tell the story of my first fan event. My first convention wasn’t E3 or a Comic Con, it was a Film Festival run by Kevin Smith. Buckle in, because this is the longest Mind of Maniac to date.

As we previously reported, we’ll be attending ConnectiCon 2018 in Hartford, CT this July. Hope to see you there!

Tales from IT – Restoring a MacBook Without Bootable Media April 12, 2018

Maniac is frequently asked to fix other people’s broken computers and electronics, including products made by Apple. Typically, when he’s had to reset virus infected computers to their factory defaults, if the computer cannot perform an internet recovery his clients need to provide him the computer’s installation media. He was disheartened to discover that media was lost, and unlike Microsoft, Apple does not offer official downloads of their older computers’ essential system software on their website.

At this point, Maniac realized he needed help that only an Apple Genius can offer. Only two Apple stores currently exist in Maniac’s home state, a state with a population of several million people. Could the Apple Store help him, and how? Watch below and find out!

We’ve been talking about Detective Pikachu for the past few days over on this site, and that is because we’ve been having a blast playing it. The game even includes support for a special Detective Pikachu amiibo, which can unlock special videos called “Pika Prompts” that players may have missed in chapters of the game they already completed.

This is no mere amiibo, Detective Pikachu is large and very well designed. Let’s take a closer look at it with an unboxing and show how it works!

Detective Pikachu is out now exclusively for Nintendo 3DS systems.

CT GamerCon pushed some of our regular video content behind just a bit, but we’ve got something for you today that I’m sure all of you will enjoy, an unboxing. Let’s take a closer look at Detective Pikachu and see what’s in the box!

We have been enjoying this game like crazy since picking it up. It not only captures the spirit of the Pokémon world perfectly, it also is a fantastic send up of classic PC mystery/adventure games.

We had a blast talking to Chris Rio and the whole gang responsible for the adult card game Cheer Up this past weekend at CT GamerCon. Hot on the heels from a successful Kickstarter, Cheer Up is now available at retail and we got to play a hand with its creators. Just be aware, this is an adult game and it features mature content.

How did we do? If you want to know more about the game or pick up a copy for yourself you can order it or play a sample game on its official website.
