Wolfenstein: The New Order is out today and that's all well and good. Instead of talking about what's new, let's take a look at this easter egg in which you take a nap and play through the first level of Wolfenstein 3D. It's...

Aug 11
// Jonathan Holmes
After playing The Wonderful 101 back when it was Project P-100, I wasn't sure what to think. Thankfully, the newly released demo shows that the game's come a long way since then. While it's easy enough to breeze through on a...

There's a secret in BioShock Infinite's ambient noise

What's it mean?
Apr 06
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
This isn't really a spoiler, but you're probably better off avoiding whatever this is about anyway. I imagine we're going to be discovering a lot of hidden secrets in BioShock Infinite over the next few months. The latest di...

Feb 07
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
Yup, Visceral brought back the foam finger gun for Dead Space 3. Kind of was hoping for something different this time, but it's still a pretty badass weapon. Like before, it's pretty much a one-hit kill weapon, and Isaac wil...

How to get Gears of War 3's chicken-firing Cluckshot

Sep 25

Part of what makes this Gears of War 3 Easter egg so fun is that it's a stark contrast to how serious the series takes itself. The other part is that it's a gun which fires live, exploding chickens. The Cluckshot, a fowl-cen...

Pikmin 2 has unused music: It is my new jam

Aug 30
// Jonathan Holmes
Like a lot of people, I love Pikmin. What appears to be a cute, relatively kid-feiendly game is actually a tale of potentially endless, unspeakable horrors. It's one of the few series that is simply too stressful for some pe...

Apr 30
// Jonathan Holmes

Billy Mitchell's tie spotted in new Donkey Kong game

Zork also hidden in Call of Duty: Black Ops

Aug 29
// Leigh Alexander
Image quality is poor because I snapped it with my cell phone, but I found this on the floor of Arcadia Winery (upper portion).
