A Stormtrooper smacking his head is one of Star Wars Battlefront's best easter eggs

Stormtroopers are kind of a clumsy lot. For supposedly elite soldiers, they sure do miss often with their blasters. Oh yeah, a bunch of Ewoks outsmarted and defeated them, too. It seems like if Darth Vader wants something done right, he ha...   read

Fallout 4 has the smallest Alien Easter egg

First, let me clear something up that also confused the shit out of me. Prometheus 2 is no longer called Alien: Paradise Lost, but instead Alien: Covenant and is coming in 2017 (as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy). Meanwhile, Neill ...   read

Uh, Mario? Is that you?

Super Mario Maker got an important update last night. My focus was drawn to the new costumes and much-needed ability to lay down checkpoints in levels, but Nintendo also slipped in an easter egg. It's super easy to access, but I doubt I wou...   read

Google search 'Super Mario Bros' for a celebratory Easter egg

Batman: Arkham Knight has a Halloween-themed Easter egg

I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over again. Easing u...   read

There is a couch in Battlefield Hardline and you can drive it

First-person shooters can feel pretty generic most of the time. You're handed your gun and objective and then proceed to shoot people that get in your way. You die, and start all over again. The ones that really stand out, however, are tho...   read

Battlefield Hardline's cops go nuts for donuts

I'm not hip on police vernacular. Like, "donuts spotted!" for instance. That probably either means they found donuts, or "spotted" is a cheeky word for sprinkles. Whatever the case, these Battlefield Hardline cops are stoked that ther...   read
