Forza

Forza Horizon 2 will display at 1080p, running at 30 frames per second


The difference between a game with set tracks, and an open world
Jun 06
So it seems Forza Horizon 2, unlike Forza 5, will not be running at 60 frames per second. While it will still display in 1080p, the open-world nature of Horizon doesn't seems to play nice with the idea of a locked 60fps rate,... read

Spoiler alert, kind of, sort of...not really

The Terminator 2 river chase gets remade in Grand Theft Auto Online


Watch with me if you want to live

Deadpool does Fanime, and wins


He does it so hard, and almost gets done harder
May 31
I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte... read

They really seem to be stepping their game up
May 29
I really enjoy the Call of Duty series, but jeez was Ghosts a letdown. While many a hater will like to say every game in the series is more of the same, it was painfully true of Ghosts. That said, the new DLC pack really sho... read

Gary Busey and Chewbacca make for amazing Miis


And by amazing, I mean terrifying
May 28
You ever see something that's so simple, yet so perfect? Like a Gordon Ramsey dish that uses just five ingredients, and only takes 30 minutes to make. Vinesauce is giving you just that with their Sh*tty Mii creation, whereby Vinny takes a picture of celebrities with the Wii U GamePad, and lets the Mii creator do the rest.
