Is No Man's Sky a Russian plot to distract from election tampering?

The United States is the gold standard for democracy, also known as a "representative democratic republic." It's why we are the freest country in the world and why we have almost 800 military bases abroad to make sure others are doing democ...   read

Here are 80 ways to kill Kirin Jindosh

Like I noted earlier: Dishonored 2 makes killing fun, even it'd rather you not. The first is probably my favorite. There's a nut-shot that's pretty good, though. And of course I am partial to the way I did it: entering Jindosh's Clockwork ...   read

You will never Hitman this good

This, from GuLe's run at Hitman: Hokkaido's Escalation Mission, is some top-tier Hitman-ing. Apparently one second slower and an NPC would notice some bodies, costing you that 20,000 "No Bodies Found" bonus, but I'm more impressed by manag...   read

Watch the start of The Last Guardian, which is definitely coming out

This isn't spoilers for me, because I've already played through this bit, but this Japanese The Last Guardian promotional trailer condenses (quite a bit!) the intro into about six minutes, then includes some extra cool shit with evil terra...   read

Remember: The Xbox started life as an actual, giant X

I'm not sure how I'd never seen this before. Maybe I did and figured it was promo for the early 2000s X-Men flicks. But Microsoft's "Xbox" was once a very literal name. Microsoft is going into the archives to celebrate the Xbox 15th annive...   read

Titanfall 2's jiggling butt physics like woah
