Destiny update briefly brings back Dinklebot for one last hurrah

Anyone who played OG Destiny knows the pain of the "Dinklebot." On paper it was a great idea -- famous actor Peter Dinklage would accompany the player throughout the adventure, hot off of his turn on Game of Thrones. But the writing and the...   read

There's a cute little hidden message on the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

Having just picked up my Pro Controller on launch day, after playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild entirely by way of the tablet and Joy-Con grip, I've since gravitated towards using it almost exclusively. While the former two options are ...   read

Get a constant influx of pussy with Android N's easter egg

Yesterday, some Nexus phone owners were treated to an upgrade to Nougat aka Android 7.0, the latest version of Google's we-can-do-iOS-stuff-too-kinda operating system. It's by far the best version of Android I've ever used; punchy and crisp...   read

Every Xbox One S has a hidden Master Chief, and hardly anyone will find it

Doom even managed to hide satanic imagery in its music

They say if you play Doom's soundtrack backwards, you can faintly make out the lyrics, "The devil is good, actually; the devil is good actually," in repetitive locust drones. Well, not quite, but in a move that 30 years ago would have been...   read

Naughty Dog snuck a couple cute Easter eggs in the Uncharted 4 trophies

One of the many reasons I was so impressed with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is how, as a generationally-separate tag-along to a trilogy, it deftly puts a cap on the whole thing, while also paying homage to its predecessors. I was just watchi...   read

Secret found in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out damn near three decades after release
