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

Real life Ryu wrecks car with his bare hands


Bonus stage
Jan 29
I hope that car was non-running and cheaper to junk than fix, or else that's a waste of a perfectly good little car. Not that we all haven't thought about letting the aggressions out and possibly hurting ourselves while destroying some property. Just think about taking a baseball bat to some cheap, boardwalk-prize glassware. I could go for one of those right now. read

Nice Battletoads shirt, Phil Spencer


The head of Xbox is fashionable, as always
Jan 21
During Microsoft's Windows 10 livestream this morning, Xbox boss Phil Spencer showed up to talk about what he knows: games. Fable Legends is headed to PC with DirectX 12 and cross-platform play with Xbox One, which is nice and all, but did you see Phil's shirt? That's Battletoads alright. The time is now. read

This rebellion blade has been featured in Devil May Cry 2, 3, and 4, as well as the anime. Get a look at the creation process in their newest video above, or skip straight to 11:00 to see the finished sword! read

What the butt? Shovel Knight is in Road Redemption


He's coming to the Steam Early Access game today
Dec 22
Shovel Knight's surprise appearance in Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption seems like the result of the developers meeting over drinks, someone throwing out a wild idea, and no one being sober enough to interject. Then again, this is the studio responsible for butt mode. Bless 'em. read
