  • 9/22/2014: Should I Tell Him?

    Just a few hours after the infamous Loot Cave Death of 2014, I spotted this lonely level 13 waiting patiently to shoot at Hive scum ...

  • I'm Glad That Vikings Have Taken Over Video Games

    Seriously, between Skyrim, The Banner Saga, and now gorgeous-looking 2D brawler Viking Squad, they've been killing it lately. And people. They've been killing lots and lots of people. Viking Squad is a great-looking brawler coming from the presumably difficult-to-grip folks at Slick Entertainment.

  • You Had Me At 'Assassin's Creed With Kittens'

    Thank you, the Internet. Damn you to cat claw hell for this, but also thank you so much. The face that kitten in green makes when it's about to catssassinate the first soldier. This face: The horror. And also everything else about this video. Assassin's Creed Unity might have cool crowd tech and post-just-shanked-a-thousand-dudes fistbump bro-op, but I don't think it can top this.

  • Bungie Is Starting To Fix Destiny's Loot

    We all figured that Bungie would begin to take steps to fix Destiny's flawed loot system. Good news: The first big changes come next week. In a new update at the Destiny blog, the game's developers say that after next week's 1.0.2 patch, rare and legendary engrams will always decode to an item that's at least rare or legendary quality, respectively.

  • Shooters Are Better With Silly Sound Effects

    Foley artists spend countless hours doing the thankless job of getting your game sounds — shotguns, plasma rifles and chainsaws — just right. It's not an easy job. But those games are still fun if you replace all that hard work with dumb mouth noises.

  • The Slapstick Fighting Game That Took Over An Entire Festival

    "I think the game is kind of horrifying," one game developer tells me over drinks. "Its violence... the intent behind it, is a little too real." His comments strike me as strange, given that Gang Beasts reminds me of watching slapstick comedy from The Marx Brothers and The Three Stooges as a kid.

  • One Small Tweak Makes Vita Remote Play So Much Better

    I haven't been the biggest fan of the PlayStation Vita's remote play function. It sounds great in theory—use your Vita to stream games from your PS4, play games in bed or on the go! But it never works quite like I want it to. One of the issues for me has been lag, but lately, that's been much less of an issue.

  • There's Already A New Loot Cave In Destiny

    I mean, were we expecting anything else? Bungie may have nerfed the famous Loot Cave™ and several others yesterday that players had discovered would grant them with fast enemy respawns and therefore a higher chance of scraping loot and engrams together, but that doesn't mean there aren't others yet to be discovered. Bye bye, Loot Cave.

  • Disney Infinity's Marvel Super Heroes, Ranked

    A new wave of Disney Infinity madness is upon us this week. The first round of figures for the new Marvel Heroes edition of the well known sandbox platformer has hit store shelves and there are more than enough well known characters to choose from. The roster is stacked, but I'm here to set the record straight on which figures are the greatest and which ones just don't quite stack up.
