I've hit a wall in my slow ascent up the Nex Machina leaderboards and that has led me to look up unbelievable runs to glean tips and tricks. This one by Twitch streamer Xaerock is astounding. After one-credit clearing the game on Master di...

This GBA SP Switch dock is crude, but functional

The Game Boy Advance SP is a masterpiece of a system. While the Game Gear had the backlight years before it, this was the first time I was able to play a Game Boy without attaching a gross worm light accessory to it, and man, did the G...

Watch a random world record speedrun all day, every day

Speedrunning is one of my favorite things to watch. Sometimes presented with our without commentary, I just love watching people tackle a game and using strategies from the community while adding their own spins to it. It helps me become a ...

Shame we never got The Thing as a point-and-click adventure

I enjoy a good video game mockup every now and then, and this one is too rich of an idea not to share. Just imagine: John Carpenter's The Thing as a LucasArts-style point-and-click adventure game. Computer Artworks explored The Thing as a ...

Paul Robertson's Australian Pokemon kick ass

If you thought key, sword, and trash Pokemon mean GameFreak has exhausted all possibilities for new monsters, rest assured: good artists can always come up with more. Artist Paul Robertson single-handedly put together an entire Pokedex that...

Skydiving with a Nintendo Switch looks terrifying

This strange but compelling "short action film" by Valera Boluchevsky and Richard Chirkin shows some of the places you can take your Nintendo Switch, up to -- and including! -- while skydiving. I can't say I fully understand the Donkey Kon...

Half-Life 2: VR made it through Steam Greenlight

A virtual-reality makeover for Half-Life 2 sounds like a terrific new reason to revisit the iconic game, and with Valve prioritizing other initiatives, fans have taken it upon themselves to make it happen. The community-built Half-Life 2: V...

Destiny raiders kill all bosses without using guns or dying

As Destiny winds down with Destiny's Child incoming, its players are saying goodbye in the insane ways only Destiny players can. For example, killing all the raid bosses in Challenge Mode with no guns and without dying. "It took us around ...

I would rock this Nintendo Switch arcade dock

Knowing someone who owns an original X-Men arcade cabinet, six players and all, is a real treat. As more and more "funzone" type arcades pop up in various places and adopt smartphone variations like Flappy Bird and Temple Run vari...

Someone already beat Prey in under 20 minutes

It's only been out a few days, but people are already speed-running the new Prey with impressive results. Twitch streamer DraQu just clocked a sub-20-minute time, embedded above. This run is an improvement on his 44-minute time from yester...

A fighting game tournament with two-second rounds? I'm in

Having been to arcades in Japan, it's incredible what you can find. Entire floors dedicated to preserving games from 30 years ago is just one wonder, but thriving fighting game competitions were another awesome sight to behold. Over in ...

I would still play this dated, lost Sonic skateboarding game

This has been one of my favorite episodes of the Unseen64 series, partially because of the lengths that folks have gone to in the name of game preservation. Years back there was a Sonic-themed skateboarding game slated for Xbox, PS2, and Ga...
