Ark II is an honest-to-god Vin Diesel video game

I am formally nominating Ark II as the wildest moment of The Game Awards. I can't even process it. In the lead-up to us seeing the title, I was convinced we were getting a rabid new Turok with Vin Diesel. Instead – and I can't stress...

Sony is doing weird PlayStation ads again

Sony has run some pretty out-there ads for PlayStation in its time. The latest – a promo urging players to "feel more than love this Valentine's" – doesn't reach those same dizzying heights, but it's weird. I hope they keep thi...

A Pokemon trading card sold for $195,000

Humans are pretty adept at finding new and increasingly outlandish ways to spend their money. Last week, a 1998 Pokémon Illustrator card fetched $195,000 through Philip Weiss Auctions in New York. Not only is this trading card j...

Conan O'Brien basically plays himself in Death Stranding

Conan O'Brien shares a video game with Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lindsay Wagner, Nicolas Winding Refn, and, bless his soul, Guillermo del Toro. If literally nothing else, Death Stranding is neat. Even if you aren't feeling Death Stran...

Nintendo's new fitness device for Switch is bonkers

Nintendo is closing out a busy week of video game news with one more announcement: whatever the hell this fitness contraption is. Today's first-look demonstration raises so many questions. The video shows actors running in place, doing pos...

Remember Chex Quest? It's getting a free HD remake

Chowing down on cereal is one of childhood's greatest joys, and if your sugary breakfast happened to come with a free prize inside the box, you were on cloud nine. It didn't even matter if the little trinket was pure junk and you got bored ...

Someone managed to stack hundreds of Goombas in Mario Odyssey

I'm sure many of us spent at least a few moments trying to stack Goombas as high as possible in Super Mario Odyssey. It's a fun goof! Making our hijinks look like mere child's play, here's YouTuber SKELUX using a bit of trickery to push the...

This supposed new Pokemon looks a bit nuts

We may have gotten an accidental glimpse of the new Pokémon that will debut in Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee later this year. I won't lie: I feel like the way-too-young kid who couldn't resist sneaking downstairs late at night ...

Spider-Man rolling on water is my kinda glitch

Sometimes we see real dumb stuff in games and keep it to ourselves. Not today! Aerial tricks in Spider-Man can look funny enough as is even when everything's working as intended (real talk: it was one of the first skill-tree upgrades I wen...

What should these Sega candles smell like?

As spotted on Sega Forever's Facebook page, Sega has gotten the Very Good idea to make replica Mega Drive and Dreamcast candles. There's just one question: what scent should they have? Folks have been chiming in with suggestions like Street...

Hylics 2 is a total fever dream and I love it

Hylics was the "trippiest RPG" I had ever seen as of 2015, but now it's time for a new king: Hylics 2! Creator Mason Lindroth shared a video preview for the sequel earlier this week, and I'm delighted knowing that some of you will have neve...

Mount Your Friends 3D looks suitably ridiculous

I'm still cracking up at the full name for Stegersaurus Software's Mount Your Friends 3D: A Hard Man is Good to Climb. That wordplay is on point! The game itself is about what you would expect from a sequel. It's silly, beefy, super dangly,...

Ace of Seafood brings laser-firing fish to PS4 next week

If we can't get a Tokyo Jungle sequel (or even a re-release on PS4; I'll happily settle for that!) then I'll just have to get my insane animal action in elsewhere. Ace of Seafood, which released for PC last year but is only now coming to Pl...

Hold on, Breath of the Wild lets you do that?!

Making fantastic use of the newly-added video capture feature on Nintendo Switch, Twitter user Daniel Otaigbe has shown off his "special move" in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Or, as our own Darren Nakamura puts it, "a controllab...

I'll never look at Yoshi the same way again

One of my favorite parts of the SNES Classic (aside from the system's all-too-important rewind feature) is that it has Nintendo bringing up old behind-the-scenes tidbits. The mini console gives us a focused opportunity to collectively remin...

Being fairly naïve to anything outside of core Nintendo games, its such a delight discovering stuff, particularly cool old stuff, thats Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair? A side-scrolling platformer/shmup? What a delightfully odd game

I prefer the more dramatic/serious Power Rangers seasons (like Lightspeed Rescue, SPD, and Time Force) over the more comedic/wacky seasons (like Turbo and Lost
