Halo: The Master Chief Collection players must wait for next major patch

You made me promises, promises, you knew you'd never keep

Assassin's Creed Unity is a bit of a train wreck at the moment. The Parisian playground is plagued with a myriad of glitches, most of which aren't as fun or hilarious as the nightmare fuel pictured above. Understandably, many...

Let's watch Assassin's Creed Unity glitch out to the tune of 'Barbie Girl'

That's our Assassin's Creed
Nov 12
// Jordan Devore
Kyle sent me this compilation of Assassin's Creed Unity glitches and, six minutes later, I'm calling it: I've spent more time watching these games mess up than I have playing them. When they screw up, they tend to do so spectacularly. Best glitch happens at 4:26.

Assassin's Creed Unity really nails those next-gen glitches

I mean 'current-gen'
Nov 11
// Brett Makedonski
Or, maybe this guy's not a glitch. Maybe he's an assassin sent with a darker purpose. Maybe he's supposed to infiltrate your nightmares and make sure you never sleep soundly again. Kudos to you, Assassin Brotherhood; you've found a way to inflict a punishment more terrifying than death.

136 years is a long time to be banned from Smash Bros.

When that ban's up, it should be about time for the new Smash to release
Nov 03
// Brett Makedonski
Some Smash Bros. players on 3DS are finding themselves the unlucky recipients of an unfortunately long ban from the game -- 136 years. Well, it's most likely a glitch, but that probably doesn't come as much consolation t...

Giant characters in Super Smash Bros. are a glitch, sometimes

Unintentional entertainment

Giant characters are nothing new for the Super Smash Bros. series but not like this. Not like this. It seems that in Smash Bros. for 3DS, Yoshi's Egg Lay move has the ability to make large CPU characters even larger in Multi...

It's more like falling with style. Battlefield 4 is in beta. This means a lot of things aren't working right. And some are working too right. Take this collapsed building, for example. It's one heck of a wreck, but its eleva...

Star Command 1.01 due soon, and here's how to cheat nasty

May 10 // Niero Desu
The more ghetto your ship is, the better.  Never upgrade the walls or shields.  Simply build rooms to max out your crew count and make them as tough and fast as possible. After you have your crews nestled in the weapon rooms you can watch corgi videos while your ammo charges. If it wasn't for the mini-games the game would nearly complete itself without intervention. You can actually beat the Russian and Wealth missions without issuing a single command. As multiple wall hulls collapse from oncoming fire the probability of teleported enemies getting sucked out into space increases, keeping your babies nestled away from ever facing combat. Derp. You can break the combat further by keeping a soldier directly in front of doors, causing enemies to get stuck or walk out and get sucked into space. To prove that this incredibly cheap strategy works I put the game on the hardest difficulty and easily conquered the hardest optional quest, the second Grol encounter, without losing a single crew member.  Just make sure you wipe them out fast when they get stuck or they'll multiply faster than you can shoot at them. This makes the optional Grol battles a piece of cake, despite their 9000 health. The developer recently submitted a patch which doesn't directly address the games' core flaw, but instead adds some cool features like larger ships. They're also hiring a writer for more missions and promised to continue updating the game, so maybe future patches will address this vulnerability. Until then, its fun to be winningest and worst space captain this side of the cosmos. 1.01 Bug fixes may include:• Added beginner difficulty level• Engineering lagging devices fixed• Unlock larger ships and heavy difficulty• Tips for Minigames• Added missing countdown for a few random “yellow” missions• Grol split period reduced, but increases 2x with every split• Allow touch larger area to grab token• Ammo button now disabled if no more tokens allowed• Assign buttons disabled if room is full• Weapon UI improvements• 3 additional tokens (15 total) given on new game• Max crew increased to match number of rooms• Various other UX tweaks• Other various bugs and adjustments The game has so much potential to be way more engaging. I hope they figure it out. I'd love to be able to invade other ships and see come closer to its Kickstarter vision. Audio credit: Zircon
Beat the Grol, last mission, etc in black hole difficulty by standing still
[Note: Article contains mild mission spoilers] Star Command is totally worth the $3, but the game is hella broken. Ironically, the more of a fiery death inferno your ship becomes the easier the game gets. If you haven't...


Aliens: Colonial Marines says hello, my honey

All singing, all dancing!
Feb 12
// Jim Sterling
So yeah, Aliens: Colonial Marines is pretty glitchy, but considering the lack of entertainment value in every other facet of the game, I guess we have to take our laughs where we can get them. This, for the record, is worth a solid chuckle.  At least this game's proving itself fertile ground for video clips and .gif silliness!
