Eight childhood game obsessions, illustrated

For Matter's New York Review of Video Games, a "weeklong celebration of our most experimental, most alive, least respected art form," the publication asked eight artists to illustrate a single game that dominated their youth,...

I think we've found the ultimate OutRun machine

I hadn't heard of Force Dynamics' crazy-looking 401cr motion platform before today but I'm already convinced: it is the coolest way to play Sega's arcade classic OutRun.* "This is the original arcade OutRun from 1986, ported...

Ducklings and Pikmin need to watch out for storm drains

Don't tell Jonathan, but I still need to watch Pikmin Short Movies. I'm a bad Pikmin fan. But looking at these pieces of art created using Art Academy: SketchPad makes me feel better. They were made for a Miiverse challenge p...

OC ReMix celebrates turning 15 with, yep, you guessed it photo
OC ReMix celebrates turning 15 with, yep, you guessed it
by Jordan Devore

OverClocked ReMix has given us a ton of amazing remixes over the years. Longer than I realize, sometimes -- the game music community celebrated its 15th anniversary this week. Crazy.

For the big one-five, the site has released 15 new remixes from 15 different game systems. You can listen to those here, free of charge. Lot of fun titles on the list, including Chrono Trigger, Demon's Souls, and, haha, Super Mario Sunshine. Here's to 15 more years.

Got a favorite OC ReMix album? Mine is Donkey Kong Country 2: Serious Monkey Business.

This map shows where to find Pokémon in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

On my journey to obtain every Pokémon in X/Y (and eventually give many of them away; no regrets!), this map of catchable Pokémon created by reddit user Bobdor was instrumental. It got my Pokédex off to a ...

I wish I had the artistic talent to make a sweet Charizard Game Boy

You can't comprehend how bad I am at drawing and painting. Impossibly bad. Like, I'm not positive I'd pass a kindergarten class if that's a thing five year-olds get judged on. Then there are people like this who can flawless...

Finally, some Majora's Mask art that doesn't terrify me

Olly Moss is my favorite artist working on game-related prints, though he also makes great posters and even box art. I never seem to be around when his stuff is up for sale, and that, well, that doesn't change today with the...

Take this! My love, my anger, and all of my sorrow!

Don't cry, Rain. Our own battle has just begun.  I just want to watch stupid G Gundam all weekend with its nationally stereotyped gundam. It's like a 4th grader designed them all after reading through a world atlas.   That or just play Gundam Battle Assault 2.

Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games photo
Armchair psychology: Why we keep playing bad games

Destiny is the worst game I can't stop playing

I keep hearing this, or variations of it again and again from my friends, all of whom seem unable to escape the jaws of a game they all claim to hate.

And you know what? I get it. Because it's 1:00 am, and I'm up playing MechWarrior Online again. Or if we go back a few years, Ragnarok Online. Or Gun Griffon Blaze, or Rainbow Six, or whatever other shitty game I either never liked to begin with, or learned to despise, but dumped a needless amount of hours into for reasons that I couldn't articulate then and barely understand now.

I think we've all probably done a stint at the crappy-game-rodeo in our lives. Played something our heart wasn't into but put up with long after it was time to call it quits. But why? Well, I won't pretend to know all the answers, but I've been down this road a few times, and I think I can point out a few recurring patterns. More importantly, I think I might have a few ways to break the cycle.

This Super Smash kitten is simply adorable

Jonathan introduced this video of a kitten occasionally pawing at Super Smash Bros. by saying, "It's the least newsworthy news ever newsed, but it will make people happy to watch." Indeed, I had just come off a last-round de...

Fall asleep to a sea life documentary filmed in Grand Theft Auto V

I didn't spend a lot of time underwater in Grand Theft Auto V. There are a lot of other things to do, like chasing a guy down for 15 minutes on foot because he's wearing a scarf in 80 degree weather, and then punching him a ...

So long, sub-$100 PS4s: Walmart adjusts price-matching policy

Thanks to Walmart's new online price matching, some customers were recently able to set up phony third-party listings on Amazon.com and convince the retailer to honor totally ridiculous discounts. For instance, how does a Pla...

I like Far Cry 4's map editor because it leads to goat butt stabbing videos

Imagine a scenario where goats take over and rule supreme. Not good-natured, frolic in the meadow, eat your leafy spruge goats. No, purely evil, human-devouring, straight-up refuse to eat your leafy spurge goats. Pretty...

The only awkward, live-action, gory Smash Bros. video you need today

Are you excited for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U? You should be. Chris "Barack Obama" Carter says it's 9.5 good. That's not 9.5 out of like 3 billion. That's 9.5 out of 10. Some people that are certainly appropriately enthused for Smash Bros. are the ones in this video. I don't really have words for what's going on, so I'll let the clip speak for itself.

Mario Kart 8's take on Mute City recreated in F-Zero X

Mute City is my favorite DLC track in Mario Kart 8. Like, it's not even close. Nintendo doesn't seem all that interested in making a new F-Zero, but at least we have dedicated fans out there keeping the series alive. Take th...

Two years worth of work went into this Final Fantasy VII recreation in LittleBigPlanet

I love Final Fantasy VII as much as the next guy, unless the next guy is Jamie Colliver. More than two years ago we featured his work in LittleBigPlanet 2 as he had remade Final Fantasy VII up through the Temple of the Ancie...
