Twitch Plays Pokemon causing chat issues

Twitch Plays Pokemon is a huge deal. So huge, in fact, it's been causing enormous stress on Twitch's chat system across the entire service. On Sunday Twitch actually moved the channel off of their normal servers onto a dedica...

This lowest-score run of Super Mario Bros. is impressive

It may not be a flawless run, but YouTube user NotEntirelySure's playthrough of Super Mario Bros. is a riot all the same. He cleared the game with the lowest possible score, 500 points, without the aid of save states or slow...

You can bet real money on Super Street Fighter IV

Even with no money on the line, I get way too stressed out playing competitive multiplayer games. My emotions run wild. I cannot fathom participating in money matches, though the appeal isn't lost on me. Capcom has partnered ...

Rust needs more players like this guy

[Editor's Note: There's a visible dong in this video's thumbnail because you start out as a naked dude in Rust, so, yeah. I've embedded it below. Consider this your NSFW warning.] As far as I'm concerned, this is the perfect ...

Twitch Plays Pokemon is the best thing since Salty Bet

It could have easily been a disaster, but it's quite the opposite. I cannot stop watching. Twitch Plays Pokemon is a collaborative stream in which Pokemon Red/Blue is played by people in chat. Button inputs (e.g., "up," "down...

Dhalsim's leg's comin' at you in this cool tattoo

I've done very limited research on the topic (read: none), but this Dhalsim tattoo has to be the cream of the crop as far as Street Fighter-inspired body art goes, right? I mean, this is awesome in just about every way. One thing's for sure, Street Fighter has taken the lead back from Mortal Kombat in the tattoo department.

GTA V players snatched a car in midair with an airplane

Make your own fun. It's a lesson that we sometimes forget in the glut of linear, Hollywood-style "cinematic" games. I once spent an afternoon among friends in Ultimate Spiderman seeking out the highest building in the game, ...

Maybe Magikarp isn't as worthless as we all thought

Hands down, the most oft-cited example of a useless Pokemon is Magikarp. I mean, it's definitely not one of the more badass Pokemon. Stupid fish. All it does is splash around, right? Well, until it decides to splash right ov...

Volpin Props has another slick Soul Calibur IV replica

I've been following the work of Volpin Props for years and haven't lost interest yet. The end result is frequently terrific, sure, but it's the step-by-step photos and explanations of the building process that keep me coming ...

Why you might play a videogame at your next job interview

Let's face it, job interviews suck. Actually getting an interview, for me at least, is a minor miracle so it's just as deflating when you have to go through the whole process of trying to make yourself sound like a great cand...

Neat idea: A headset that can help stop gamer rage

I don't know anyone who hasn't at one point in the life or another gotten upset at a videogame, whether that be due to bad design, an inability to play well enough, or something else entirely. Sam Matson has a novel solution ...
