Fun with glitches

Let's watch Assassin's Creed Unity glitch out to the tune of 'Barbie Girl'


That's our Assassin's Creed
Nov 12
Kyle sent me this compilation of Assassin's Creed Unity glitches and, six minutes later, I'm calling it: I've spent more time watching these games mess up than I have playing them. When they screw up, they tend to do so spectacularly. Best glitch happens at 4:26. read
Assassin's Creed Unity

Assassin's Creed Unity really nails those next-gen glitches


I mean 'current-gen'
Nov 11
Or, maybe this guy's not a glitch. Maybe he's an assassin sent with a darker purpose. Maybe he's supposed to infiltrate your nightmares and make sure you never sleep soundly again. Kudos to you, Assassin Brotherhood; you've found a way to inflict a punishment more terrifying than death. read
Smash Bros. ban

136 years is a long time to be banned from Smash Bros.


When that ban's up, it should be about time for the new Smash to release
Nov 03
Some Smash Bros. players on 3DS are finding themselves the unlucky recipients of an unfortunately long ban from the game -- 136 years. Well, it's most likely a glitch, but that probably doesn't come as much consolation t... read

Giant characters in Super Smash Bros. are a glitch, sometimes


Unintentional entertainment
Sep 29
Giant characters are nothing new for the Super Smash Bros. series but not like this. Not like this. It seems that in Smash Bros. for 3DS, Yoshi's Egg Lay move has the ability to make large CPU characters even larger in Multi... read

Can you work out the Glitchspace?


This Scottish first-person puzzler is now in paid alpha
Feb 03
I really like the idea of glitches as a form of artistic exprestion, especially in videogames. Whether it's the opening of Fez or the memory glitches in Remember Me, there's something about our supposedly perfect digital uni... read

His hair is made of little faces


So wrong, yet so right
Jan 29
Perhaps I get more joy out of bizarre glitches than most. I probably do. But I felt obligated to share what has got to be one of the more entertaining texture mess-ups out there and couldn't turn down the opportunity to writ... read

You can fly a tank in Battlefield 4's beta...kind of


It's more like falling with style.
Oct 08

Aliens: Colonial Marines says hello, my honey


All singing, all dancing!
Feb 12
So yeah, Aliens: Colonial Marines is pretty glitchy, but considering the lack of entertainment value in every other facet of the game, I guess we have to take our laughs where we can get them. This, for the record, is worth a solid chuckle.  At least this game's proving itself fertile ground for video clips and .gif silliness! read
