Anyone who watched today's Thursday Night Throwdown knows we broke some serious god damn news: Gary Garcia and Jerry Buckner of "Pac-Man Fever" fame are working on a mobile game.

What kind of mobile game are they working on? No details yet, but the duo called into TNT to discuss their history with the legendary video game and revealed their mobile plans.

Garcia and Buckner have been in the news lately because "Pac-Man Fever" is now on Rock Band.

The duo also revealed they were working on a track based on Angry Birds but were unable to get clearance rights.

Jerks.

I continue to blame my poor performance on TNT on that terrible, terrible controller.

Also, Rovio Mobile, makers of the popular game Angry Birds, are total jerks.

I agree Patrick, they should have been using a 4-way stick, 8-way just doesn't work for Pac Man...
