Billy Mitchell's tie spotted in new Donkey Kong game

Donkey Kong Country Returns is filled with little in-jokes and nods to Nintendo history. I thought the inclusion of Mr. Game and Watch  was sure to remain my favorite amongst them all, but I think Billy Mitchell's tie mi...

Alright, there is apparently an easter egg on the Nuketown map of Call of Duty: Black Ops which is activated when you shoot the heads off all of the mannequins within a certain amount of time. The folks at NextGenTactic...

Zork also hidden in Call of Duty: Black Ops

Treyarch could have done the typical Call of Duty campaign and multiplayer combo with Black Ops, and that would have been perfectly fine for the majority of players. Instead, they're throwing in crazy extras like Dead Ops Ar...

Hey, that looks like Master Chief in Halo: Reach

If you've dug through the Halo: Reach unlocks, you'll know that Master Chief's voice is something you can eventually get. That's not what this is about. Instead, it's a video from Achievement Hunter that shows what appears t...

Legendary unused Mega Man boss is news to me

When Cowzilla posted those mind blowing Mega Man wallpapers last weekend, I double-freaked out. The first freak out was over the quality of the artwork. The second freak out was over the fact that I didn't recognize every cha...

Halo: Combat evolved gets some Halo: Reach love photo
Halo: Combat evolved gets some Halo: Reach love
by Matthew Razak

Halo: Combat Evolved PC gamers, your time is now. You went with the PC version over the console version and now it's going to pay off when you pick up Halo: Reach. Those with functional keys for the original Halo on PC will be able to claim "a small visual thing in-game." Ooooooo, shiny.

Don't think you can get away with any tricks like running out and picking up the original game from the shelves because Bungie is on top of that sh*t.

"For starters, I pulled a list of keys that had actually been used as of a month or two ago, and we'll probably validate against that list," Bungie developer Roger Wolfson said on the Bungie forums. "So people won't be able to just get the keygen now and claim the... reward. (i.e., people who didn't even bother to pirate the game) It also means that buying one of the few remaining copies at retail won't help you anymore."

So if you have been rolling old school with Halo on the PC you're about to be able to represent. Time to head over to your massive shelf of game boxes and pull out Halo. More info on how to use the key is coming in the build up to Halo: Reach's launch.

Easter Eggs in games have been around for ages, but Easter Eggs in consoles? Not so much. However, now that special edition consoles land with every big game out there, it seems like a natural thing that they might have some ...

Anthropomorphic animals come in all shapes and sizes in gaming, but possibly one of the best shapes and sizes is that of Sly Cooper from the Sly Cooper series. In case you haven't noticed it has been awhile since we saw Sly C...

Nice! World of Warcraft gives some love to Dr. McNinja

It's no secret that I love Dr. McNinja. It is the greatest Web comic out on the Internet right now and I have pretty much bought every shirt the site has put out. Hell, I even featured Dr. McNinja on Art Attack Friday with th...

Delicious BioShock easter egg (you must not eat it)

Image quality is poor because I snapped it with my cell phone, but I found this on the floor of Arcadia Winery (upper portion). One of those musty old cheese wheels and what looks like floor dirt forms a cute and not-so-subtle little nod from the cutting edge of gaming to the old, old school. Rock on.

EA's Simpsons game pays homage to Wolfenstein; includes original game textures

One of the most funny and promising titles at E3 this year was a (gasp) licensed IP game: The Simpsons. The game's faithful reproduction of the sitcom's art style and co-op play really impressed me; I haven't had ...
