Try out this fan made Breath of the Wild demake before Nintendo rips it away

Metroid prequel fan game is out now, but how long will it survive?

Most Nintendo fans agree that if there's one series that the publisher consistently fumbles, it's Metroid. Okay, so I get that maybe they weren't thrilled with the reception with Other M, but to see them shut down other fan games in additio...   read

This Xen teaser for Black Mesa is a promising start

The last time we spoke about Black Mesa, the fan-made Half-Life remake, it had to do with Xen. This time, we're also talking about Xen. And next time, I'm willing to bet, we'll still be going on about Xen. Today's news is a progress update ...   read

Xen will be added to Black Mesa in summer 2017

Fan project Half-Life remake Black Mesa is mostly done at this point, but still on Steam Early Access. That's because it's missing the game's final chapter, the one that never went over well in the first place: Xen. In an update o...   read

Undertale 'little buddies' toy commercial has a lot of heart

Fan-made Sonic Utopia might be the best 3D Sonic game ever
