Study ties game-related aggression to 'incompetence,' not violent content

If you've played a videogame, chances are you've been angered by a videogame. I've also been upset by driving, sewing, spilling water on my suede shoes, missing a bus, rising income inequality, and comically ballooning rent p...

Wario gives Peach a beatdown in the latest Mario Warfare

It's been a long few months, but the latest episode of Mario Warfare has finally been unleashed! The fight to take back the Mushroom Kingdom continues, and this time Mario, Peach, and Donkey Kong have some more challenging foes to contend with. Once again the choreography is top notch, especially for something that's just a web series based on the Super Mario franchise.

Shinobi clash! Ryu Hayabusa vs. Strider Hiryu

Videogame ninjas are seriously the worst ninjas of all time. It's kind of hard to keep hidden in the shadows when there is a trail of blood and limbs running right up to your present location. Still pretty badass, though. Tw...

Pac-Man, the cocky, pinstripe suit-wearing noir hero

A hyper-stylized version of Pac-Man that exaggerates the violence of the rather tame arcade original? Yeah, we've gone down that road before.
