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

Stormtroopers are kind of a clumsy lot. For supposedly elite soldiers, they sure do miss often with their blasters. Oh yeah, a bunch of Ewoks outsmarted and defeated them, too. It seems like if Darth Vader wants something done right, he ha...   read
