Here's a doctor's note so you can play Fallout 4

Get well soon, everyone

In case you'd prefer to stay home this week and play Fallout 4 rather than go into work, Bethesda marketing boss and respected medical doctor Pete Hines has whipped up a sick note to help you play hooky. Just be ready to field some questions around the office about your ailing pancreas.

Here's the Fallout 4 menu screen, both spoiler-free and spoiler-filled versions

I can't believe we're really doing this
Oct 30
// Brett Makedonski
Fallout 4, video game as it is, will have a menu screen. Enthralling stuff. We have an image of what that looks like. But, some people hate spoilers, and they're probably mad that I even confirmed there's a menu screen. Damn, I better protect my neck. Channel your inner 2007 and HIT THE JUMP for a spoiler-free version of that menu screen:

A generic cardboard box.  It may look pedestrian, but it's light, sturdy, and has a hundred and one uses. How can we get by without them? A good cardboard box is a soldier's best friend; having one handy can mean the difference between life and death. [Via @Wario64]

Pac-Man reminds me of a child actor whose star burned too bright. Much like that cute kid from that one movie, Pac-Man fell on hard times after his crippling meth addiction landed him in rehab. Nowadays, the poor guy can been...

Dog gives crying baby PS3 controller in apology

Dogs are great and babies are lame
Jul 17
// Steven Hansen
This baby is bad at sharing. The beagle felt bad about taking its toy, so it apologized by giving it many new ones, including a DualShock 3. It also might be trying to suffocate the baby, I'm not sure. Dogs are great.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain felt pretty complete to me when they let me play 14 hours of it, though I'm sure there's still work to be done. Regardless, whether Hideo Kojima is tirelessly crunching to finish realizing...

Between Skylanders, Disney Infinity, amiibo, and now LEGO Dimensions, I'm hearing an awful lot of talk about the "toys to life" category these days. That's fine, but nudge me when we can do this:

Nintendo's E3 2015 booth was dominated by huge lines for Star Fox Zero and a massive Super Mario Maker section but, tucked away toward the back, there was our old pal Donkey Kong sporting his new Skylanders SuperChargers look. Good lord!

We got a review code in today for a hidden-object game called Frankenstein: Master of Death. Darren expressed tentative interest, noting that it looks "terrible and fun at the same time?" Naturally, I went to investigate. Please send help.

Is this amiibo white and gold or blue and black?

Guys please help me. Is this amiibo white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out.
