Donkey Kong Country with classic Kong designs is unsettling

There are very few people out there who haven't at least tried the original Donkey Kong Country. Nintendo and Rare have made it fairly easy over the years, with many copies of the SNES original circulating out there, as well as Game Boy Col...

And now an adorable Wolf Link cosplay from a very good dog

WonderCon 2018 was just held at the Anaheim Convention Center this past weekend, and man there are some great cosplay pictures coming out of it -- especially in the wake of Marvel's impending Infinity War.  But one stood out to me in p...

Absolute madman gets every achievement in World of Warcraft

Having played World of Warcraft since the start, I remember the impact achievements had when they were introduced to the game with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. A lot of people (myself included) gave them a "big old nope" ...

Someone crafted a makeshift pinball machine for the Switch

Although it does take a bit of work, content creator Stemage has laid the foundation for a cheap, sub $30 custom pinball controller for the Switch on his YouTube channel. In short he uses a docked switch on a vertical-facing television...

Someone visualized our deaths in Dark Souls

The early hours of Dark Souls can be brutal as you work out how to survive long enough to find that next just-out-of-reach bonfire. Or, if you're anything like me, you fought a bunch of skeletons in a graveyard for an embarrassingly long ti...

This great Monster Hunter LAN setup brings me back

More intriguing cut Bloodborne content emerges

Bloodborne has a pretty huge following -- even bigger than I initially realized. While I enjoyed my time with the game I've met a ton of people who either love Bloodborne the most out of every Souls entry, or straight-up have only...

This Super Mario 64 x Banjo-Kazooie mod is so surreal

If I had seen this mod back in the Nintendo 64 days, I would've lost my mind. It's essentially a clever mash-up of Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64, and while Mario running around Spiral Mountain is impressive in its own right, the fan crea...
