The dialogue in Fallout 4 is so much better as farts

I can't stop laughing at this
Nov 18
// Jed Whitaker
Some evil genius decided to completely redo all the voice dialogue in Fallout 4, only instead of words he uses fart sounds. Bethesda spent years writing and recording this dialogue, while this person made it better in just ov...

We need to dirty that Pip-Boy up a little bit

As carefully as possible, of course
Nov 17

Anyone who got their hands on the wrist-encapsulating replica Pip-Boy with their copy of Fallout 4 might feel a dissonance between the dirty, grimy in-game world and the shiny coat of paint on the device. For a place wh...

'Come on, DD, we're taking the cardboard box!'

The last word in infiltration technology
Sep 16
// Jordan Devore
I see Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as a game about expressing yourself in silly ways and sharing those absurd moments with anyone who will listen. Clearly, I am not alone. This latest example comes from James J, who has cardboard box sliding down to a science.

Who needs a puppy when you have Ocelot?

The barking killed me
Sep 11
// Jordan Devore
Today's going to be fantastic. One of the first things I saw after settling in for work was that funny character swap in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that had Ocelot standing in for Quiet, showering with clothes on and posing seductively. If that was comedy gold, then this latest swap is a true diamond. Take particular note of Ocelot's curled toes toward the end of the clip.
