Diablo II

This fan-made Diablo II project is housed entirely in StarCraft II

A fellow by the name of egodbout2 has taken it upon themselves to recreate Diablo II in the form of a project called "The Curse of Tristram." But it's not just any old fangame, it's actually a mod for StarCraft II. Impressive! Wha...

This recreation of The Walking Dead in Fallout 4 is amazing

It's Monday, and you’re still raging about last week's The Walking Dead finale. I feel for you, friend. Maybe a trip back to the good ole days - the days before Rick's beard insanity, and Neegan and his merry band of psychopaths - may...

Nintendo pulls plug on fan-made Zelda browser game

Remember that voxel Zelda browser game we told you about? The fan-made tribute crafted without Nintendo's permission? The one all the game websites were talking about? Surely you know where I'm going with this, right? It took just a couple ...

Shadow Moses was supposed to be a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid in Unreal Engine 4, but now the developers have taken to Facebook to announce that the project is canceled: "We have an important announcement to make today...

This Super Metroid hack is a pseudo-remake of Metroid Fusion

We don't know much about what's in store for the future of Metroid. Sure, Federation Force is coming (and I begrudgingly shaved a Metroid into the back of my head when it was announced), but I'm hungry for another side-scroller or firs...

What are the chances that this unofficial Metal Gear Solid remake won't get shut down?

I hate to be a downer, because I'm all for seeing Metal Gear Solid rendered all pretty-like in Unreal Engine 4. But when you make an unofficial remake of something that doesn't belong to you, and the owner is Konami of all companies, a ceas...

A sequel to Half-Life: Opposing Force is coming to Steam next month

Before Half-Life 2, the Black Mesa universe gave birth to three Half-Life spin-offs: Opposing Force, Blue Shift, and Decay (and where Gearbox Software got its start). The average person might not know this because they were never treat...

The Legend of Zelda Maker is a real (unofficial) thing

Mega Man 3 in Unreal 4 is arguably better looking than Mighty No. 9

One guy who really likes Mega Man 3 (hey, I'm with you buddy) has created a build using Unreal Engine 4, and it actually looks pretty neat. This whole thing was developed by Handré De Jager, who has posted his project on Yo...

Fangame Sonic Worlds is looking really impressive with its latest release

Half-Life 2 in the style of Hotline Miami is the best thing on the Internet today

We've all slaughtered scores of headcrabs, but we've never done it from this perspective. This fan-made game takes the Hotline Miami approach to Half-Life 2, trading Freeman's viewpoint for a chaotic overhead one. It may not be as per...

Fanmade Resident Evil 2 remake canceled

A bit of bad news with a silver lining, Capcom's recent announcement of an official remake of Resident Evil 2 has indeed put the kibosh on Resident Evil 2 Reborn; a promising looking fan remake made with Unreal 4. On the upside, accord...

All the way back in 2009, the fan game Mega Man X: Corrupted was shown off to the world, and it looked great -- yet, here we are six years later still waiting for it. There's some good news on that front, as a new set of videos have been r...

Toontown Rewritten brings back my first MMO

'Quint's Revenge' puts you in the shoes of a Mega Man villain

Mega Man fans are no stranger to fan games. I've played a whole lot of them over the years, and even if all of them aren't winners, they all exhume a large amount of passion for the Blue Bomber himself, which I highly respect. The newest ki...

DBZ 2D fighter
There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter. That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.   read

In a move not expected by anyone, the Heralds of Ruin Kill Team Rules (The Good Warhammer 40K Kill Team Rules) have been updated. While Im not too hype about Eldar near-D shenanigans and Rogue Trader Ork weapons, the Grot Rebel list seems to be blast!

 
Fuzunga

I might actually get Overwatch in the near future if I can play it with you guys. Ive never had a group to play with before.

 
Shinta

Finally got around to starting Pocket Jockey. What a delightful little game. I absolutely adore the dialogue and the main character. The gameplay is really fun too. Fun fact, CJ is quoted on the eshop in the sales banner for the game right now.

 
ZombZ

The next person to ask me to hold the door today is getting kicked in the balls. While Im sobbing of course. Seriously fuck my coworkers.

 
nickcburgess

Is it acceptable to rant here? Even if its not about games? Cause Im sick of my female facebook friends linking to their odyssey online articles they wrote. Youre 19 and a freshman in college. You dont have all the answers. Sorry this isnt video gamey

 
Gamemaniac3434

And thats REmake finished and done-really good game, had a great time with it. Finally digging into the backlog and clearing it out a bit.

 
Samsneeze

So I watched Millennium Actress again today and I dont know why I insist on watching movies that make me feel terrible things after theyre done. I still wholly recommend it if you havent seen it before. Its fantastic.

 
Torchman

Im not sure how I feel about dividing my most recent WIP blog into parts, but its probably for the better. It was already larger than any other blog I had written with just 25% done.

 
Pixie The Fairy

Man, sockpuppet accounts representing gamers are still in vogue. Sad they dont know it takes longer to create them than to ban/delete them.

 
Lex

Browsing through Doom Mods you can find pretty much everything ... but the lack of Warhammer 40k themed mods is kinda disturbing ... and sad.

 
Nekrosys

God dammit. Day-1 patches are so inconvenient.

Hey Torch, whats writing your recent blog like 30% writing, 70% making gifs

Vita vs PSP. Go. Nonono. Not the PSP Go. Just go.

Hey, just a streamin thing. free to join me for some REmake, ask me some questions about Microbiology and whatnot if you are interested.

Well, I caved in and grabbed a copy of Overwatch (PS4).

 
Steven Hansen

what you wanna see video-wise out e3? conference recaps round tables? video previews to go w/ written? just off-screen footage for extended look at gameplay of new games that prob only got brief trailers? purely weird shit like that Great America video?

 
Osc

Watching Monday Night RAW and a DOOM commercial pops up. Bloody Awesome - Destructoid. Being quoted from a 2014 post. You guys made it, now.

 
Vadicta

So, if Microsoft already has a console not doing so well, is it really wise to release an upgraded version and segment their already not-great market share? Like if the NX was a more powerful Wii U instead of a new system, would anyone care or want it?

 
Dreamweaver

Because only poor people have to choose. :P Nah, for real though, even though I bought Battleborn to tide me over until Overwatch came out, I think its a lot of fun for MOBA players. I can see myself trying to play both games for the foreseeable future.

 
TheBlondeBass

Im so sorry GM, I should have been a better trainer for you... I mean, you had shitty moves and stats, but maybe if we got to talk to each other, understand each other, things wouldnt have come to this...

Hey heres a random thought, remember Nintendo TVii? Me neither.

When people complain that Gotham doesnt fit the Batman continuity I have to ask... which continuity? I mean, how many goddamn versions of the Batman continuity are there? At least Gotham is trying something different (and doing it quite well imo).

Is anybody else pretty scrubby at Street Fighter V? They killed what I loved about Gief in IV and now Im in a rut. My PSN is TurboThrill. Hit me up.

I actually think the Wii-U is the worst console I have ever owned. Ive played maybe 10 games I like on it, but only 3 are actually Wii-U games and not virtual console games, and only 1 of those is actually made by Nintendo.

You guys report on Notch saying some stuff on Twitter, but you dont bother reporting on Notch reading Notch X Minecraft fanfiction on Witwixs stream today? Fucking Game Journalism man, really need to get yalls priorities straight. :)

Dear Laptop, I know you hate being cleaned but if you dont stop making that whining noise with your fan because I cleaned out the vents, I will take you in for repairs. You have been warned.
