WTH, EPA?

The country’s Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water created mass confusion online last night w”hen it labeled itself a “C-list celebrity" in the mobile Kim Kardashian video game.

From the @EPAwater account, the bizarre message read:

"I’m now a C-List celebrity in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Come join me and become famous too by playing on iPhone!"

EPA Tweet

Was the organization's account hacked? Was someone there playing a prank?

Think the Kim Kardashian sex tape made this reality star into one of the richest women in Hollywood?

We're hope you're sitting down for the following news, THGers:

Insiders tell TMZ that the talent-free A-Lister is set to bank $85 million off the iPhone video game app that bears her name and likeness.

Yes, $85 million. That's more than all of Kim's other business ventures put together.

The Kim Kardashian Video Game
Congratulations! You're Kim Kardashian! Minus 200.

The Kim Kardashian video game (“Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”) will gross over $200 million this year. Expenses to create it did not exceed $10 million and Kim receives 45% of net profits.

How do you turn this on? How do you play this thing? You call these graphics?!?

In their latest video, Los Angeles-based filmmakers Benny and Rafi Fine gathered a bunch of kids (ages six through 13) to examine a Nintendo Game Boy, the portable video game player that shot to popularity over 25 years ago.

As you might expect, the youngsters were confused by the antique, unsure how it worked or why anyone would ever purchase such an ancient machine.

But many were actually grateful for the device, aware that it paved the way for the far more advanced technology these kids enjoy today.

Except seven-year old Evan, that is. "It's kind of boring," he says in the following footage. "I kind of feel sad for the people in the past."

The Fine brothers have also recently asked kids to react to rotary phones and also to a Walkman.

Sometimes parents humiliate their kids.

Other times, however, parents totally come through for their kids. We're pretty sure the following fits into this category.

For their child's recent birthday, a mother and father gifted him with the video game Minecraft. And when he opened it, the tears flew, the yells emanated and all-out hysteria commenced for a solid minute.

In the description of this video online, the parents said their son's reaction went "above and beyond" what they expected. To that, we say... YA THINK?!?

We haven't seen anyone this excited since this dad sang Let It Go.

Kim Kardashian video game really is in the works.

The reality star has been teasing this absurd project on Instagram for days, at first posing a logo for it... then adding a picture of herself in a recording studio... and now unveiling the first official trailer.

Titled “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” the game launches in the App Store and Google Play next week.

By the looks of this teaser, it appears as if one earns points for hitting the club; for flirting; for making the A-List; and for other important life missions.

Watch now, but be sure to turn down the volume, lest you get blasted with Kim's annoying voice:

In what is surely the most bizarre Kardashian news of the week - maybe even the entire month - an actual Kim Kardashian video game is coming.

This might be more absurd than the news that Farrah Abraham wrote an erotic trilogy. Tough call. Either way, you read the above sentence correctly.

The walking wonder that is Kim Kardashian and her giant decolletage and generous derriere are being cartoonized and game-ified. Legitimately.

If you've ever wanted to BE Kim, your chance has arrived.

The Kim Kardashian Video Game
Congratulations! You're Kim Kardashian! Minus 200.

We have so many questions about the Kim Kardashian video game, the first and most glaring of which is WHY? (Because why not, right??)

Beyond that, who the target audience is for this product is a mystery.

Tweens? Adult women with fantasies of reality TV stardom? Men who hope they'll get to be Ray J in a virtual reality Kim Kardashian sex tape?

More importantly, what's the point? How will the game be played?

The Kim Kardashian Video Game

"Excited about this new project #ComingSoon #KimKardashianGame."

It's never too early to heed the Call of Duty, is it?

Although the next edition in this video game franchise doesn't come out for six months, Activision launched the first official trailer duty for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare today.

The company says this version will be the first Call of Duty game not set in the present, as it will focus on "battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactic have evolved."

And it will also feature Kevin Spacey!

All we know is that the Oscar will play a powerful politician of some kind - and that his voice is featured in the following extended promo.

Check it out now and start the the countdown until the November 4 release date:

Flappy Bird, the addictive mobile game that flew to the top of the iPhone and Android app downloads charts in recent months, has now flown the coop.

A tweet from the creator suggested that its huge success had become a burden for him personally, despite the insane sums of money he banked.

"I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down," developer Dong Nguyen wrote Saturday. "I cannot take this anymore."

What is the "this" he's referring to?

Nguyen, a Vietnamese developer with a studio called DotGears, did not reply to interviews request, but has previously said that the game "ruined" his "simple life."

"It is not anything related to legal issues," he said.

"I just cannot keep it anymore."
