Frog Fractions 2 adds $2B stretch goal to buy Oculus VR back from Facebook

The big news of the week was Facebook's surprising purchase of Oculus VR, the company behind the crowdfunded virtual reality headset Oculus Rift. Naturally, the denizens of the Internet (over)reacted unfavorably, and Minecraf...

Goat Simulator pulls a Dead Island for its emotional launch trailer

Two seconds. Two seconds into this launch trailer for Goat Simulator and I was already laughing. It's coming to Steam on April 1, 2014 because that's only fitting. To be clear, yes, Goat Simulator is an actual, real game eve...

Listen to 25 minutes of Goat Simulator music insanity

So when I watched the Goat Simulator trailer I was so focused on the actual gameplay that I glazed over the soundtrack. Thankfully I came across the extended version of the trailer song and I haven't been able to stop replaying it. Yes, I know. I'm not right in the head.

Video: Alt.Ctrl.GDC shows weird new ways of pushing buttons
by Max Scoville

There was a wonderful spread of strange and interesting indie games at GDC, including a special exhibit called Alt.Ctrl, focusing on projects that made use of unusual controllers. Bill Zoeker screwed around with these for a bit before discussing what it's like to play a game with pedals, knobs, dials, cables, sleeping bags, and a receipt printer.

If you want to find out more, I dug up the websites for all of these games:

Kutaragi's Way is some of Mega64's best work

I was only able to catch bits and pieces of the Independent Games Festival awards and the Game Developers Choice awards last week, but I did manage to see what must have been one of the evening's best moments: Kutaragi's Way...

The amazing alternative controllers of the ALT.CTRL.GDC exhibit

A new alternative controller exhibit made its debut at GDC this year. Amazing selections from 14 independent teams were shown at ALT.CTRL.GDC on the GDC show floor yesterday, and every one of them had my imagination running. ...

Ryu and Ken have a rap battle about their dicks

Ninja Sex Party and Egoraptor's latest music video single from their Starbomb album is all about Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter having a rap battle. It's mostly a battle about their dicks and stuff. The animation this time around was done by Spazkidin3D, and if you like Egoraptor's style of comedy than you'll really enjoy the stuff Spazkid does.

How much does Japan love Pikachu? It is their World Cup mascot

Japan has teamed up with Adidas and The Pokemon Company for a promotional campaign leading up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. That Mary Sue pocket monster is taking advantage of the weight its shed over the years to lead Jap...

Team Rogket blasts off

A reddit user found a website where you can pay people a very small amount of money to read whatever scripts you want. So he paid a couple of guys to do the Team Rocket theme from the Pokemon cartoons. Japanator even did a feature about them, and you can check that out here. It's all very stupid, yet made me laugh like an idiot.

Still funny: Surgeon Simulator out now for iPad

I laughed three times during this trailer. The patient being beaten in the face with his own heart, the distended eyeballs, and the demented writhing at 43 seconds. If you have a friend or family member with an iPad, buy the...

Now that the secret's out for Frog Fractions (unless you haven't played it already in which case, you know what you must do), creator Jim Crawford will have a heck of a time surprising us with a sequel. But I think he can do...

This animation captures GTA Online perfectly

You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism. That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best.

Coffee Stain Studios talks Goat Simulator's origin, release date

Sanctum developer Coffee Stain Studios has written about the birth of Goat Simulator, a hilarious thing that at one point wasn't going to be a real game until enough of us demanded it. We needed this. "After a day or two we ...

Naughty Dog designer Peter Javidpour made a little flash game about Rambo. He released Rambo: Last Blood a couple of years ago actually, but it's making the rounds again after the release of that horrible piece of crap Rambo ...
