Dying Light

Dying Light enabling wacky ragdoll physics for April Fools' Day


Keep this going for more than a day, please
Mar 31
For April Fools' Day tomorrow, Techland is bringing extra floaty physics to its open-world zombie-slaying game Dying Light, which has me wondering, why isn't that a permanent cheat code? This is the sort of thing, weird and ... read

Life is Strange's Warren is taking things too far


Life is strange (when you have a stalker)
Mar 26
Alright, dude. We get it. You're into the girl. All the nervous chatter and endless texts killed your cover. It's okay, though. She might be into you too. But, what she won't be into is finding you hiding behind bushes starin... read
Sanic the Hegehog

Dang, someone got this Sanic amiibo before I could


Snagged!
Mar 17
I've highlighted some custom amiibo in my time, but nothing like this. Nothing like Sanic. "I originally made this for a good friend," wrote designer Alltheapplesdoubled, "but I would love to have an army of Sanics running a... read

Wanna scrub that dad

What they need is a good defense
We all know the PlayStation Vita is now the de facto home for all things Japanese. Ports, remakes, re-releases, and original content all trickle down similarly to the little handheld that could, and the Vita port of 2010's PS... read feature

Mega64

So *that's* how Sakaguchi got stuck making Final Fantasy after Final Fantasy


Mega64 does it again
Mar 06
"How'd they get him?" That question comes to mind when I go back and watch some of my favorite Mega64 videos. Somehow, there have been skits with big-name creators like Shigeru Miyamoto, Hideo Kojima, and Ken Kutaragi. Now here's another in that vein: "Hironobu Sakaguchi's Final Fantasy." Did he just staple his computer monitor? He just stapled his computer monitor. read
Meme Run leaves eSho

Meme Run pulled from Wii U eShop by Trollface creator


Alanis Morissette would be proud
Mar 04
In a continued lack of self-awareness, Carlos Ramirez (a.k.a. Wynne), creator of the popular meme "Trollface" has filed a DMCA takedown against Ninja Pig Studios. The filing claims unlicensed usage of the Trollface likeness in their Nintendo Wii U eShop game Meme Run infringes on his copyright of the image. read
If loving surrealism is wrong, I don't want to be right
When it comes to crafting videogames out of the norm, there’s one question developers should ask themselves: What are we afraid of? Games are the perfect medium for exploration of bizarre, unnatural worlds, and yet it s... read feature

Breaking Bad

This Breaking Bad 'inspired' weed game on iOS is just....


Can't even
Mar 04
While scrolling about in the iOS app store I found a game called Breaking Farm -- or as it's known by its other name, "Impending Lawsuit." The story involves "Weedsenberg," who watches a "famous television series" a... read
Mega64 x D4

Mega64 does Dark Dreams Don't Die


Push everything
Mar 03
The longer we go without a second season of Dark Dreams Don't Die, the more I realize how much I genuinely connected with Swery65's strange adventure game. What a tragedy it would be for this story to go unfinished. I need r... read
Mistaken sprites

'Togekiss watching Doduo take a crap' and other mistaken sprites


I still struggle to see Emperor Gestahl correctly
Mar 02
Instead of taking a proper lunch break away from my computer today, I got caught up in this funny, nostalgic NeoGAF thread about "sprites that look like things they're not supposed to." Older games allowed and even encouraged... read
Don't be Patchman

Hahah what: Don't Be Patchman is a 'sneak-and-grow' game


It makes less sense the more I watch
Feb 25
As I watched the first video of Don't Be Patchman (below), I thought I had an okay feel for what it is. Plant apples, get an apple tree, shake it for more apples. Got it. I'm no Animal Crossing slouch. Next video, ... read
Xbox One Burgers

You can now eat Xbox One burgers in Hong Kong


Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger! Can I take your order?
Feb 25
Everyone has their morning rituals. Some people need their coffee. Others jog. I peruse Japanese website Gigazine hoping to see pictures of bizarre and wonderful foods. It's rarely videogame related, so I haven't shared this ... read

Star Fox Spoof Trailer

Nerdist's spoof Star Fox trailer reminds me of the old Nintendo Power comic


Never give up. Trust your instincts
Feb 18
Star Fox is possibly the most under-appreciated Nintendo series. It's had games cancelled, been snubbed entirely for a whole console generation, and hasn't received an original entry since 2006 (although an untitled Sta... read
Nintendo Amusement Park

What would it be like if Nintendo ran a theme park?


I'm like, 'Yo - that's fifty dollars for a ten-year old game.'
Feb 17
Nintendo is a company whose name is synonymous with videogames (just point at any console and ask my granny what it's called). It's produced some of the most beloved and iconic characters of the last century, and is still goi... read

Funny GTA clip

Failed GTA attack sums up my experience piloting jets in videogames


How embarrassing
Feb 09
You might think that a helicopter peacefully drifting along in Grand Theft Auto Online would be an easy target for a fighter jet, but some of us aren't so skilled at flying these things. Poor MrSmileyHat69. I know your pain. [Via reddit] read

Smash tomatoes

Everything's coming up tomatoes in this Smash Bros. glitch


Super Schadenfreude Bros.

Chris asked me to fill in for him this morning, if only for a single post, so I figured I'd do exactly that not with amiibo coverage, but with this Super Smash Bros. glitch in which tomatoes have run amok. Somehow, something... read
PlayStation song

Remember that time Eiffel 65 sang about PlayStation?


'My Console'

You know Eiffel 65 for the international sensation "Blue (Da Ba Dee)," whose music video looks like it was ripped straight from a videogame, but did you know the Italian Eurodance group also put out a song about the original... read
Czech PlayStation ads

These Czech PlayStation ads make me feel like a criminal


I just got sickled and hammered
Feb 01
These ads come from not too long after the Iron Curtain became the Iron Drapes, and Western culture began flooding the former Warsaw Pact. It's obvious that there was still a little bit of a learning experience going on in 19... read

People are always saying, "I don't get Twitter," a bit too proudly, like when congress folk boast about their Internet illiteracy before agreeing to Internet legislation. I respond with pet pictures and great jokes, but they'... read

Campy old Zelda CD-i games imagined as Hyrule Warriors DLC


I, uh, kind of what this to be real
Jan 15
Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon are two ill-fated Philips CD-i games that would be best left forgotten if they weren't such trainwrecks. Their legacy of unintentional hilarity endures through YouTube, g... read

Modders are having so much fun with Ground Zeroes


Oh my god, these gifs

At this rate, I'll wind up double dipping with the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. We covered the mod that lets you play as designer Hideo Kojima, and the one that replaces birds with humans, but here are a few more I came across this morning that demanded to be shared. First up, Metal Gear Chico. read
