I think I'm losing my mind: Extra Mario Bros

 There are times in my life where I think I'm going insane. When I'm up late watching Comedy Central and they actually start dropping the f-bomb despite it being basic cable. When I go to a McDonald's and see that they sell veggie-burg...

Fake game Friday: Hatred and Pride

More often than not, modern videogames aren't really about choices. Yeah, we've got branching storylines and local agency, but in pretty much every game there is always a "good" or "best" ending which players will, more ...

Fake game Friday: Player versus Character

I just finished reading The People of Paper by Salvador Plascencia, and it gave me a pretty unusual (but hopefully interesting) idea for a short, independent game.Initially charting the picaresque adventures of a bed-wetting father and his ...

Fake game Friday: Enigma

This week's fake game isn't so much of a gameplay conceit as it is a really neat story idea which lends itself to videogame narrative. It's called Enigma, and it's brought to you by Dexter345 with an accompanying Photoshop by our very own ...

Fake game Friday: Desu Baaru

I must say, this week's fake game is officially one of my favorites we've ever showcased. Submitted by Aoi Tsuki and goddamn brilliantly Photoshopped by our own Topher Cantler, Desu Baaru ("Death Ball") combines the fun, carefree...

Fake game Friday: Cooking Chief: Cook Off

Wii one-off: China brings us the 'Vii'

GoNintendo found images of what appears to be a Chinese knockoff of Nintendo's Wii, brilliantly name the "Vii". It looks like the creators of this system put the absolute minimum amount of work into the Vii, obviously copying the ...

Fake game Friday: You See 'Em, You Kill 'Em

This week's fake game, submitted by fearian (and Photoshopped by our own Topher Cantler), is only for the hardcore. And when I say "hardcore," I mean it in the Diablo II sense of the word -- if you die in You See 'Em, You Kill 'Em...

Fake game Friday: Capcom Hearts

Today's fake game comes to you courtesy of Pwn Daddy (with a Photoshop by our own Topher Cantler, of course), and I'd play it in a heartbeat if only to see Mega Man and Mike Haggar on the same screen together. Says the Daddy:Basically, Kin...

Games time forgot: The Getaway: Black Monday

I'll admit it -- I've got a soft spot in my heart for extremely flawed games. The Getaway: Black Monday could never be mistaken for a great game, but hell if I don't enjoy it: for in addition to including a heaping helping of London accents...

Fake game Friday: Rayman Raving Rabbids: The MMO (RRRMMO)

The specifics of this week's fake game are probably best left to the imagination -- for everyone's sake. Conceptualized by electro lemon, Rayman Raving Rabbids: the MMO may very well have been created solely out of a desire to create an acr...

Fake game Friday: Pokemon Golden Sun Revolution

Fake game Friday: Frank Herbert's Dune Golf

Let's be honest: who hasn't looked at the vast dunes of Arrakis and thought to themselves, "That's one sand trap I would never get out of"? Most people, probably. But not forumite BetaMaster, whose fetishes for both Frank Herbert ...
