Fan-created Mega Man FPS gets an even better trailer


Feb 16
// Jonathan Holmes
Mega Man games seem to go over better when they stick to their 8-bit roots, but there's no reason why they can't be 8-bit-ish while operating on all three axes. Just take a look at Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch, a game that takes...

Enter the Mushroom Kingdom of madness in No More Plumbers


Dec 07
// Jonathan Holmes
I just checked out the rest of the site where that semi-old Travis Touchdown skin for TF 2 is hosted, and I found some cool stuff. Turns out the creators of the skin, MechaWare, also makes their own fan games. I've only tried...

Capcom teases fake Mega Man Vs Capcom Vs Marvel game


Dec 04
// Jonathan Holmes
Damn you, Capcom. Why do you tease? This has to be the zillionth time you've advertised a fake game that I'd kill to actually play. Lego Strider, the NES Dark Void port, all just as awesome as (if not more awesome than) your ...

Grue renewed: Fallout 3's Reign of Grelock is playable


Sep 03
// Joseph Leray
Sadly, this article isn't about a Zork remake (not that a text-only game would benefit from bump mapping or bloom lighting) -- I just needed a catchy headline that would attract text adventure enthusiasts. If the phrase "...

Apr 06
// Jordan Devore
It's highly possible that it is the funniest faux FPS ever, but I've been known to get worked up over incredibly stupid things before. Then again, haven't we all? The Onion has a first-hand report on Close Range, the anticipa...

Dead Rising 2 trailer? Probably not, but this is still pretty cool


Feb 06
// Dale North
I know we cried wolf before, but that was for humor's sake. That other stuff? Definitely not even close to looking real, and even Capcom gave us sh*t for posting that. This at least looks like something real, or the intro to...

Introducing the wave of the future: The Pii


Sep 09
// Colette Bennett
The worst part about this video is that it's more or less indistinguishable from a real Wii rip-off product advertisment. Vii, Wii, Pii, they all sound kind of like something you might see peddled at that shady random electro...

I think I'm losing my mind: Extra Mario Bros


Dec 25
// Jonathan Holmes
 There are times in my life where I think I'm going insane. When I'm up late watching Comedy Central and they actually start dropping the f-bomb despite it being basic cable. When I go to a McDonald's and see that they s...

Fake game Friday: Hatred and Pride


Dec 21
// Anthony Burch
More often than not, modern videogames aren't really about choices. Yeah, we've got branching storylines and local agency, but in pretty much every game there is always a "good" or "best" ending which play...

Fake game Friday: Enigma


Nov 09
