Some Team Fortress 2 characters join the Super Time Force Ultra team

Well, looks like I'll be playing Super Time Force all over again when it hits Steam. Why? Well aside from the new challenge levels and alternate-dimension powers, there's three new playable characters. Two of which are from ...

Rocket No. 9, take off to the planet Venus...in Destiny

Destiny's about to come out soon, and then we can put all of these trailers behind us. But for now, let us check out this new gameplay trailer detailing the planet Venus. I think I vastly prefer the prior trailer from only a...

Admit it, you're a Yoshi ditcher

I've done it. You've done it. We've all done it. When you have to choose between Mario or Yoshi, it's always going to be Yoshi getting sacrificed for the greater good ... or for that damn Moon 3-Up x on the Cheese Bridge Area stage in Super Mario World.

Take to the skies with the latest GTA Online update

It's been quite some time since a major GTA Online update but Rockstar has broken its silence with the announcement of not heists. Sorry.  Instead it's The San Andreas Flight School update. Expect new air and land vehic...

This custom System Shock 2 PC is what my hacker-infested dreams are made of

System Shock 2 is one of my all-time favorite games, and this custom PC featuring SHODAN is amazing. Granted, it's not a spot-on SHODAN, but it's close enough to make me more than a little moist and extremely jealous. TTLG f...

Star Citizen breaks the $50 million mark

Remember that animated .gif of Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata holding a DS and proclaiming "It prints money"? You could probably do the same with a picture of Chris Roberts and his pet project Star Citizen. The ambitious ...

Double Fine picks up goofy multiplayer brawler Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts is hardly new at this point, but we've been given another opportunity to talk about it now that it's a part of the Double Fine Presents line. I'll take it. The funny multiplayer brawler will be playable later thi...

There's plenty of death in this hour-long The Evil Within video

Based on this hour-long play session of The Evil Within, I'm not expecting to be particularly scared by the game, but I am expecting to die quite a few times. Given its limited checkpoints, the fear of failure and having to ...

Warframe's next update lets you fly around in space as a ninja

I had played a bit of Warframe on PC to see what it was about, thought it was merely okay, and moved on not much later, as you do. Digital Extremes' free-to-play cooperative action game has since come to PlayStation 4 -- and...

This parody of R. Kelly's 'Trapped in the Closet' made my day photo
This parody of R. Kelly's 'Trapped in the Closet' made my day
by Jordan Devore

When Teddy Diefenbach isn't working on Kyoto Wild or Hyper Light Drifter, he's reading what people are saying about his games online. Sometimes, no matter how much praise is given, all it takes is a single negative comment to put you in a bad, obsessive mood.

It's a feeling he's humorously captured in this music video for Trapped in the Comments, a parody of R. Kelly's one-of-a-kind, can't-believe-that-happened "hip hopera" Trapped in the Closet.

Seriously. Made my day.

Indie Megabooth: The PAX Prime games you want to see

If you're going to be at PAX Prime in Seattle this year and you plan to play videogames sometimes instead of getting drunk and singing karaoke all of the times, you should go to the Indie Megabooth and see some of this cool, weird junk.  And that's not all. Chroma Squad, Hotline Miami 2. 78 games in total, including 20 truncated showings from the Indie Minibooth.
