Yep, Line Rider is still good as hell

A few days ago, YouTube recommended me some video for Line Rider, a monstrously effective time-waster I haven't thought about in close to a decade. Like most of these automated suggestions, I only gave the video's title a glance before movi...

Sure, I'd play a Kingdom Hearts Cuphead DLC

I love me a good piece of concept art. Some of my favorites are from artist Simon Andersen (who created Owlboy), specifically his re-imagining of certain retro classics on other platforms. This "Cuphead meets Kingdom Hearts" mashup fro...

Finally, a Zelda: Breath of the Wild Lynel cosplay

I see Zelda related cosplay at nearly every event I attend, but this is something else. Cosplayer TheCrashProject managed to make a full-on Lynel suit for NYCC 2017, a creation that ended up taking them "three long weeks" to prepa...

Some lunatic hit level 4,000 in Overwatch

Most anyone who has played Overwatch knows that it can quickly turn into quite the time-sink. Committed players start chasing victories, competitive rankings, and loot boxes. The hours can really pile up. One person is the new standard...

It's the perfect time to start fresh in Dark Souls

For way too long now I've been telling myself I'm overdue for a fresh run through Bloodborne, but it looks like I'll need to postpone those plans yet again. The Dark Souls reddit community is starting its three-week "Return to Lordran" even...

Cuphead looks right at home on this old television

Playing Cuphead has made me want to seek out and watch a bunch of the 1930s cartoons from which it draws inspiration, but in the mean time, here's a real cool semi-related thing: YouTube user Lazy Game Reviews has hooked the game up to disp...

I'll never look at Yoshi the same way again

One of my favorite parts of the SNES Classic (aside from the system's all-too-important rewind feature) is that it has Nintendo bringing up old behind-the-scenes tidbits. The mini console gives us a focused opportunity to collectively remin...

This 1998 BioShock demake is something else

This gets my vote for today's coolest thing (that isn't new but is new to me). 98DEMAKE is a YouTube creator who takes modern video games and imagines what they might've looked like had they originally released in 1998. I've seen plenty of ...

Which Breath of the Wild Zelda hairstyle is your favorite?

A fan came up with this alternate hairstyles for Zelda based on her Breath of the Wild character model, and I have to say, most of them are pretty good. It really got me thinking about how far Nintendo could go with Zelda, and the discussio...

I...I think I would buy a Switch Joy-Con drink holder

The folks over at Adafruit Industries 3D printed something we didn't think we'd ever need -- a Nintendo Switch Joy-Con drink holder. As shown in the video the project, which takes seven hours and 30 minutes to print, allows the Joy-Con...

In the PUBG lobby, you make your own fun

I probably played dozens of hours of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds before I realized there's an underground bunker in the lobby. For whatever reason (it's not my stupidly expensive fast internet or high-end graphics card!), I load into the ...

This Pokemon Go weakness cheat sheet is a brilliant idea

These past few weeks, recalling what Pokemon type counters what has been a real time saver. Raiding has been pretty big in the community, and in addition to the standard ice/lightning/fire counters for each legendary bird, there's also a he...

I would play the hell out of Arms on Game Boy Advance

These demake art projects have a tendency to create a crushing sense of false hope, but I appreciate looking at them and wondering what might have been all the same. Artist Bomb998 shared this gem over Twitter -- a retro-tinted Arms feature...
