Wow, LJN really hated kids


And I thought that Roger Rabbit game was the worst thing LJN ever did
Feb 06
Widely reviled as one of the worst game companies of all time, LJN earned its infamy way back during the NES era, pumping out terrible licensed game after terrible licensed game. The company was bought by Acclaim where it co... read

Leave 'em Laughing attempts to make a game out of comedy


Are you going to die on-stage?
Oct 16
Comedy ain't easy, especially in this medium, so a title that tries to game-ify creating a stand-up comedy routine sound a tad ambitious. Leave 'em Laughing from Australian developer Oscar Brittain is a mashup of adventure g... read

Mega64's take on Gauntlet is only something they could do


Just watch
Sep 03
Here's Mega64 taking on Gauntlet, with Rocco and others acting as the "world's biggest Gauntlet fans" demonstrating their love for the game and all it entails. Hilarity ensues, but that's to be expected.  I don't know if this tops "Chin Down, Eyes Up," but it pretty much nails the awkward stage presence I'd have if I ever chose to make videos like these.  read

But will the genatiles remain untouched?

We gave the Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures an 8.5 when it came out on PC last year. Our resident Mega Man expert and James Rolfe fan Tony Ponce found the game to be quite compatible with his particular sensibilities. It sho... read

This 'Flappy Game' mockumentary is probably spot-on

Ah, video game documentaries. Love 'em or hate 'em, you can't argue they're still interesting pieces of film. You know what's even better? Documentary spoofs. And Dorkly's got one that hits a little closer to home than you m... read

One does not simply walk into South Park
So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you t... read feature

This Battlefield 4 locomotive cannot be stopped


Train kept a-rollin', all night long
Feb 12
I'm loving this video of Battlefield 4, which features the "Golmud Railway" map and a 64-player attempt to bring its moving train to a halt. Is it funny because the train seems to ignore the laws of physics applied to all ot... read

Domestication woes

LEGO The Last of Us should be a real thing


Until that day, this interpretation will have to do
Dec 12
This video brightened my day in a huge way. It's an animator's idea of what The Last of Us franchise would look like if taken on by the Traveler's Tales team of LEGO game designers. It is now my new go-to argument in favor of the assertion that any idea, however grim, can be made funny with the proper application of Danish construction blocks. read

I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out.
