Millennial Man: Someone hit Steam level 1,000

Steam level might not mean much to you, but it certainly means a lot to user PalmDesert. That's because he's the current world leader in that category. Just recently, he added a comma -- one that he's likely had his eye on for a long time n...   read

Genius Left 4 Dead mod replaces wall scrawls with Jaden Smith tweets

This is probably the best thing I've seen all week. The beautiful community for Left 4 Dead 2 (specifically, Molkifier) has been working on a mod that doesn't fundamentally change any aspect of gameplay, but will provide a wh...   read

Screw it, let's just play basketball in Overwatch

How do you, dedicated Overwatch player, spend your time during the pre-match phase? Do you wreck up the place with random acts of violence? Shout hello hello hello until every last player on your team reciprocates? Try and fail to get the b...   read

Super Mario Maker fansite aims to put Nintendo's official level finder to shame

When it comes to costumes, Nintendo's support for Super Mario Maker is unwavering. But bigger issues, like expanding its level search system, or adding major objects like slopes, keep piling up. Thankfully the Mario community rose...   read

Fans aren't quite done yet with unique Super Mario Maker ideas

I only go back to Super Mario Maker every so often (a few more game themes, and the use of costumes in any theme but the 8-bit rendition would help), but when I do, I usually come across some new magical thing that the community has fi...   read

Blizzard mod owns player after he claims he did nothing wrong

While I think people overuse the word "toxic" (being competitive is not inherently "toxic"), it's pretty clear in some cases. Like this one, which a Blizzard mod hilariously brought to light after a player claimed he was silenced (read: can...   read

Finally, the Seinfeld apartment recreated in Doom 2

In a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup of Things Only '90s Kids Will Remember (and perfectly attuned to my being on the Seinfeld anniversary arc of Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld has been remade in Doom II by one Doug Keene...   read

Someone allegedly tried to steal the Zelda: Breath of the Wild E3 demo

Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the biggest games at E3 this year, and this caper involving that very project is easily one of the most interesting stories out of the event. According to Kotaku, a "17-year old game developer" trie...   read

Overwatch characters make such good cats

Overwatch has had no shortage of fan art to further cement its cast in public consciousness. I made some. Blizzard made some. If the crew was a bit less humanoid, a little more pocket monster, there'd probably be enough visual recognition t...   read

You can take Smash Bros. to prom, apparently

High-schooler Chris Burwell went to prom with his "one true love" Super Smash Bros. Melee, and he has the pictures to prove it. I've seen some goofy, nerdy, unabashedly strange senior photos in my time, but this specific brand of silliness ...   read

The Suikoden Revival Movement is likely fighting a losing battle with Konami

My God, Konami has a treasure trove of amazing classics. I'm sitting here thinking of some off the top of my head -- Silent Hill, Bucky O'Hare, Turtles in Time, Sunset Riders, and of course, Suikoden. But with their head in the pa...   read

This Dark Souls fan comic is cooler than the real thing
