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

Xbox One S released yesterday which means that someone has already taken it apart. Sure, it requires voiding the warranty but that wasn't much of a concern for Austin Evans, a YouTuber who specializes in breaking down and analyzing tech. A...   read

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

You'd think there would be nothing left to wring out of a game like Punch-Out. The NES classic, released back in 1987, has been picked apart and broken down to the point where speedrunners compete to complete the game blindfolded. But, neve...   read

A Stormtrooper smacking his head is one of Star Wars Battlefront's best easter eggs
