    … MLG X Games Aspen, the year's first seriously big pro Counter-Strike event, took place over the weekend, and people were expecting big things. It did not disappoint. Not in the slightest.

  • Soon You Will Be Able To Take Selfies In World Of Warcraft

    … Maybe you love them. Maybe you loathe them. Maybe you're taking one right now. Selfies are everywhere, because we are painfully vain creatures. And now, finally—after you begged, pleaded, groveled, and probably didn't ask for it at all—they're coming to World of Warcraft. People have begun discovering an item called the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera…

  • Pro Counter-Strike Match Fixers Perma-Banned From Valve Events

    … Recently, substantial evidence came to light that a number of pro players had been involved in a huge Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match-fixing/gambling scandal. Valve took its time investigating, but now they've finally decided to bring the hammer down. Hard. In the wake of a multi-team conspiracy that saw one of the best Counter-Strike…

  • Vault of Glass vs. Crota's End: The Destiny Comparison We Had To Make

  • The Biggest First-Person Shooter Battle Ever Had Over A Thousand Players

  • Classic Board Games That Are Better As Video Games

    … On the sliding continuum of 'gaming as a worthy pursuit,' board games are respected more than video games. It probably has something to do with age and endurance — board games have been around for thousands of years, and they've been associated, time and again, with the leisure class.

  • World Shark?

    … World Shark? World Shark. It was built by Planet Minecraft's Zeckou, who calls it a live coral reef, which explains the little floating fish and jellyfish. It's also deceptively big. Check below for the hi-res version of the three pics and the obligatory in-game shots, and click here for the world download. As I said, it's pretty big: Dayshot…

  • Sounds Like Destiny's Next DLC Will Be Way Less Cruel

    … When Destiny's first expansion pack came out last month, hardcore players were stunned. Not only did it ask them to upgrade their old exotic gear through a messy, convoluted process, it also rendered much of the loot they had acquired from the game's first raid, Vault of Glass, totally useless. Suddenly you could buy better armor at the damn…

  • 24 Karat Gold PS4 And Xbox One Controllers Are Dumb, Almost Sold Out

    … Earlier this week the folks at ColorWare ("The Color People" is probably not their slogan) released an extremely limited run of 24 karat gold-plated PlayStation 4 and Xbox One controllers. At $300 a piece the PS4 controllers are already sold out. Granted only 25 of each console's controller were made, but that just makes the Xbox One's failure…
