Dad replaces son's cardboard Nintendo Switch with real one

It's not hard to understand why @mohikan1974 has such a large following on Twitter. He always seems to be doing fun and creative things, usually with his son, Kazutoyo, like role-playing police in a crime scene. The creative spirit has flow...   read

I would rock this Nintendo Switch arcade dock

Knowing someone who owns an original X-Men arcade cabinet, six players and all, is a real treat. As more and more "funzone" type arcades pop up in various places and adopt smartphone variations like Flappy Bird and Temple Run vari...   read

A fighting game tournament with two-second rounds? I'm in

Having been to arcades in Japan, it's incredible what you can find. Entire floors dedicated to preserving games from 30 years ago is just one wonder, but thriving fighting game competitions were another awesome sight to behold. Over in ...   read

I would still play this dated, lost Sonic skateboarding game

This has been one of my favorite episodes of the Unseen64 series, partially because of the lengths that folks have gone to in the name of game preservation. Years back there was a Sonic-themed skateboarding game slated for Xbox, PS2, and Ga...   read

During a live concert, someone's Pikachu costume deflated and they were dragged off stage

An event in South Korea, featuring characters created in Japan, set to the tune of an American made musical -- globalization at its finest (or most masochistic). Songdo, South Korea hosted the Pokemon World Festival this past week, and one ...   read

After basically being ousted from Oculus, Palmer Luckey lets loose in Japan

What's an eccentric near-billionaire (or as comedian Gary Gulman would say, "barely billionaire") to do after he seemingly is forced to leave his own company? Travel the world with your [near] billions, of course. After basically not being ...   read

Mario Maker player avoids bans, does Nintendo's job in supporting the game

Super Mario Maker was a fantastic game at launch on Wii U, but it just needed some extra love and care to really be the best it could be. Nintendo sort of kind of obliged with a few content updates and some officially sanctioned levels...   read

I want this interactive amiibo jukebox shelf so bad

I felt pretty good about owning every amiibo ever made in a glass case that a family member gifted me, but this "interactive shelf" from BerryAaku is on another level. After spending "a little over a year" on the project, they were abl...   read

They met online, had sex, and then he stole her gaming collection, deputies said

[The original article said a woman would have sex for $25 worth of McNuggets, but she was willing to hit for $25 AND McNuggets, which is less surreal but still hilarious. The article was also updated to shield me from libel just in case Gai...   read

An old man and some kids dressed up to sell you this Dragon Quest PS4

Sometimes marketing can go horribly wrong. Writing a commercial that involves a crazy old man telling the story of Dragon Quest to a pair of children, then proceeding to orgasmically playing a gaming console is a example of when it can...   read

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...   read

While everyone was speedrunning Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a new Wind Waker HD record was set

In several ways, this new record for The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD is nothing short of a miracle. There's a few close shaves, but ultimately, gymnast86, who also competed heavily and consistently came out on top in the initia...   read

This long distance parry in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is amazing

GirKart64's video shows just how far you can push the limits of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Attempting to set a record for farthest parry, they walk all the way up a mountain, get in clear view of a Guardian, and let it rip. It's not so much...   read

Wow, Brazzers put no effort into its Mario porn parody

It's clear that Metal Rear Solid: The Phantom Peen was a passion project because Brazzer's latest video game porn parody, The Princess's Peach: A XXX Parody, is lazy as hell, if the trailer is any indication. Outside of the Super Mario font...   read

Yoshi in Sonic 2? Sure, I'd play that mod
