This Tracer trailer for Heroes of the Storm is so dang charming

I haven't gotten to play as Tracer in Heroes of the Storm yet because I don't have Overwatch pre-ordered and she won't be widely available for purchase in the store until next week, but that's okay. There's this utterly adorable animation...

Fun with Dark Souls 3

Praise the...run!

It's like a got-dang Benny Hill routine. Dark Souls III is fun. Here's the original video. Much less funny because comedy is all about. Timing. To make up for it, here's an excellent video of some poor sucker getting caught in well-planne...

Catch Ocarina of Time's Gerudo Valley completely rebuilt in Unreal 4

Carrying on the classic games remade in Unreal 4 genre, CryZENx has mocked up The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's Gerudo Valley in the cutting edge (at time of writing; please don't come back five years from now in HoloSpace and own me)...

Runescape update

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...

Here's everything you're missing if you're not in the Gears of War 4 beta yet

A few days ago, Steven used his words to describe the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta. That's fun because we live in an age where videos take so much precedence over the written word. Still, writing about Gears has a sort of ridi...

It only took 46 hours to beat this insane Super Mario Maker level

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should. When you finally beat the insane Super Mario Maker level after 46 hours:

This wily Dark Souls III player has embraced his inner Patches

It's wild to think that I only started Dark Souls III about a week ago, and wilder yet to come to the (worrying!) realization that I've somehow clocked a solid 35 hours of play time in that brief window. From Software's action-RPGs are amo...

Parkour! Slender dev's new game eschews traditional horror for rocket legs

Slender: The Arrival developer Blue Isle Studios has revealed its latest project, the sci-fi tinged Valley, which I imagine will suffer from some discoverability issues. How about VValley, like The VVitch? Aside from being a common noun, t...

Relive the infamous 'Mario Party Glove' and other incidents during the series' history

Mario Party might be accused of producing the same concepts over and over again, but it has a storied and interesting history to it. Most older gamers will likely remember the "glove" incident, where the Nintendo 64 controller was so t...

Sentinels of the Multiverse dev wants to add in all current tabletop expansions

Sentinels of the Multiverse is an interesting game for a couple of reasons. For one, cooperative card games can be a good time no matter the subject matter; just chill with some friends while you see if you can collectively best an inanimat...

Mega64 spills the beans on God of War 4

Mega64 is still around and just as great as ever, as seen above in this "leaked" God of War 4 footage. Did you know in the upcoming game, not only does Kratos take on Norse mythology, but all the other popular religions too? I just wa...

Video game masterpiece Super Mario Bros. is more than 20 years old [correction: 30 years, math is hard], but the very best attempts at playing it have all been fairly recent. The past two years have brought about many new world r...

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Stealing from GameStop's dumpster and reselling games is frowned upon

We can pre-load Battleborn's beta on PS4, PC, and Xbox One

As someone who is mildly curious about Battleborn, I'm glad Gearbox is holding an open beta. It's one of those games where I don't think reviews alone will suffice for me -- I'll want to get more of a feel for it first-hand to know if it'...
