Game Boy Zero

This is the Game Boy of my dreams

This "Game Boy Zero" from YouTube user Wermy ranks way up there as far as cool custom systems go. Besides the nice new screen and two extra face buttons (taken from an NES controller to provide a more authentic feel), the system also has e...

Buncha jamokes review bomb Baldur's Gate over trans character

A noticeable number of overly sensitive folks are screaming into their keyboards in outrage over the latest Baldur's Gate expansion, Siege of Dragonspear, which bridges the gap between the original game and Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn ...

Play the fan-made 3D remake of Legend of Zelda before it's too late

Before Form Software was acutely aware of the oil vein it'd hit with Demon's Souls in early 2009, the studio published Silicon Studio's (Bravely Default) 3D Dot Game Heroes for the tail end of the year. It was a 3D riff on the original Leg...

Never let your guard down in Dark Souls

Some of you are already playing Dark Souls III on Xbox One thanks to a little trick, but for the rest of us still waiting until the April 12, 2016 launch outside of Japan, this video serves as a cautionary tale. Always double check your su...

Baby beats Street Fighter V's story mode

Wow, people weren't kidding when they said SFV's story mode was easy to beat. YouTuber PapaPaint set his six-month old loose on the game's hapless A.I. opponents, resulting in the most adorable display of fisticuffs I've ever witnessed. Ma...

Man channels the spirit of Solid Snake in CS:GO

As a person who has spent well over 300 hours as a Spy in TF2, I'm no stranger to the thrill of sneaking behind your opponent's back and maneuvering around them for a sneaky win in a Source game. But, the Spy has the benefit of a cloaking d...

That nuclear winter Fallout: New Vegas mod looks like it's coming along great

It has been several months since we last checked in on Fallout: The Frontier, the community-developed New Vegas mod that takes place in a nuclear winter-shrouded Portland. There has been good reason for that: The team hasn't had much ...

Let's take a soothing break with 'The Joy of Mario Making'

If we have even a halfway decent reason to talk about Bob Ross around here, you better believe one of us will seize that opportunity. The endearing, soft-spoken artist and television show host has been parodied countless times before, but t...

No, it's not in-game, this is Lightning cosplay

Let's get the potshot out of the way. Wow, this Lightning cosplay looks so much like a CG model -- perfectly captures Lightning's lack of emotion! Of course, we know that there's a lot of depth behind Claire "Lightning" Farron. A a warm per...

Damn! Fallout fans straight doing Bethesda's job

Fallout 4's similarity to the rest of Bethesda's recent oeuvre didn't keep it from making a boat load of cash (the season pass just went up in price!) and getting nominated for a boat load of award. It's okay, though. Fans are slowly but su...

This is Doom as an Aliens game

I'm of the opinion that all video games should have Alien in them. I've gone on-record saying as much (a piece that Darren continually prodded me to actually write). Maybe it's completely unreasonable, but goddamnit did I ever legitimately...

 
Stupid sexy Ash fan art

Man beats Dark Souls without getting hit, immediately tries again

Dark Souls can be tough. Not that tough, but, still. And not to take away from the impressive runs wherein Dark Souls was beaten with mirrored controls or Donkey Konga bongos or a DDR pad or by way of a million different Twitch chat inputs....

PUP's new music video makes good use of classic games

Earlier today, Darren passed along this music video for Torontonian punk band PUP's song "DVP" as a thing we might be interested in covering, and he made the right call. Always bet on Darren. The video, directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, is...

Holy shit, this fan-made Witness puzzle is totally solvable

Just watching this Mario Maker level gave me PTSD

I'm sure you've all seen hard Mario Maker levels by now, but The Pit of Panga: Cape Escape by the eponymous Panga has to take the cake. It is a bottomless chasm of certain death, fiendish puzzles, and devilish dexterity challenges that seem...

Meteor shower mod turns GTAV into a disaster film

There was a weird trend among early LittleBigPlanet creators: bomb levels. Rather than doing much platforming, you just had to avoid getting blown up by intermittent bomb drops. They were kind of fun and way too plentiful. Here's the Holly...

Pokemon on PlayStation? With hacks, anything is possible!

Fallout 4 has been beaten without killing anyone, but it didn't go smoothly

Fallout 4, more so than its series predecessors, is a game that relies on combat. Unlike the other Fallout games, talking only goes so far, and, when push comes to shove, diplomacy gives way to violence. It's almost impossible to...
