OHHHHHHHHHHHHH YEAHHHHHHH: Macho Man's Reincarnation into Skyrim (Shortblog)

The Macho Man is back, in Skyrim and not the way you would expect. I'll let the video do all my talking for me. Video I love the insanity of PC modding sometimes and this sells it. Not some cheap hack, he's perfectly animated and everything. This is GLORIOUS. Feel free to make arrow in the knee jokes in the comments. Grab it from here to have some Macho Madness yourself.

Unannounced Sonic Game Found Alive And Well

It's a classic story told since the dawn of time. Boy has money, boy spends money on XBox Dev Kit, boy finds prototype version of a game, boy announces discovery to the internet. The big difference here is that the game in ...

I love my 3DS, but man, has it got some competition

No, not the NGP that has only shown off one game. I'm talking about the handheld that has a library of thousands, a comparatively monster battery life of 5.5 hours, TV-Out AND 2 controller support. At this point, you're think...

3DS launch impressions: "Why are you getting this then?"

The first thing I did with my new system “Why are you getting this then?” a mother asks her young son standing in line next to me on 3DS launch day. Her question was prompted after the child gave a big, “Meh…” to every ga...
