Comedy ain't easy, especially in this medium, so a title that tries to game-ify creating a stand-up comedy routine sound a tad ambitious. Leave 'em Laughing from Australian developer Oscar Brittain is a mashup of adventure g... read
Here's Mega64 taking on Gauntlet, with Rocco and others acting as the "world's biggest Gauntlet fans" demonstrating their love for the game and all it entails. Hilarity ensues, but that's to be expected.
I don't know if this tops "Chin Down, Eyes Up," but it pretty much nails the awkward stage presence I'd have if I ever chose to make videos like these. read
We gave the Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures an 8.5 when it came out on PC last year. Our resident Mega Man expert and James Rolfe fan Tony Ponce found the game to be quite compatible with his particular sensibilities. It sho... read
Ah, video game documentaries. Love 'em or hate 'em, you can't argue they're still interesting pieces of film. You know what's even better? Documentary spoofs. And Dorkly's got one that hits a little closer to home than you m... read

Set for release on April 16th

One does not simply walk into South Park So, where were you when South Park: The Stick of Truth was announced? This was all the way back in 2011, around the time another certain RPG title was on the minds of players. It was certainly a surprising reveal, don't you t... read feature
I'm loving this video of Battlefield 4, which features the "Golmud Railway" map and a 64-player attempt to bring its moving train to a halt. Is it funny because the train seems to ignore the laws of physics applied to all ot... read

Congratulations to the Yellow Jacket Man
The new crop of open-world titles, like Day Z, give interesting insight into the people who play games. Take this roving gang of players as an example, who have encountered two people wearing the same color jacket and determ... read feature
I think it's pretty safe to say that Stick it to The Man! was easily underneath everyone's radar when it landed on PlayStation 3 and Vita last month. The game garnered one of our highest reviews of the year, thanks to it's hi... read
This video brightened my day in a huge way. It's an animator's idea of what The Last of Us franchise would look like if taken on by the Traveler's Tales team of LEGO game designers. It is now my new go-to argument in favor of the assertion that any idea, however grim, can be made funny with the proper application of Danish construction blocks. read
I am not a big fan of Nathan Barnatt. More specifically, I find the character he portrays at gaming events (Keith Apicary, a self-unaware trainwreck of socially inappropriate behavior paired with a nasty vocal defect) to be ... read

Zynga's been a hot topic in the news lately, but this gaffe is quite a bit more lighthearted than the Mattrick saga. It's also pretty embarrassing.

I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest.
I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us. read feature
