The Japanese man who dropped over $6,000 on some mobile game has been usurped by another fool with way too much money. As Kotaku pointed out, at 1,113, St4ck has the highest Steam level in the world (no, I don't know what Steam levels are e...   read

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

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

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