My fellow gamers, it’s time to pick up your Joy-Cons, your DualShock 4, your Xbox Elite Controller, or a keyboard and mouse and unite against a common cause for the first time ever. On the most recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, host and so-called “funny man” challenged parents around the country to turn off their children’s

In the past, I wrote about my dissatisfaction with Nintendo’s lackluster smorgasbord of Switch variants. While the Pokémon: Let’s Go pair of Switch bundles offer a refreshingly colorful (and non-neon!) set of Joy-Con, I ultimately concluded that Nintendo’s current fleet of Switch designs are entirely too tasteful. While I could understand why someone would want

Last week we saw Lachlan. a YouTuber who appeared to accidentally publish a video showing Fortnite’s —at the time— unannounced Fortnite Creative. While it’s one thing to accidentally leak information prior to it being announced, it’s another to actively go out of your way to find and share unannounced information.

Yesterday we chronicled the growing controversy surrounding Fallout 76‘s Power Armor Edition. In case you missed it, the Power Armor Edition was originally advertised as including a Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag.

Twitter has made a name for itself by banning users who have innocently used words or phrases that the social media platform automatically picks up thinking they’re real threats. Another person has fallen victim to this, but this time it was about killing Sean Bean in IO Interactive’s Hitman 2.  Hitman 2 is a game about assassinations

The road through Rozhok is stained with blood. Plain wooden crates decorate each side of the street: one, two, three, four, there are five of them. Five small boxes filled with guns, filled with bandages, filled with clothing. The boxes tell stories of intentions; stories of submachine gun-wielding men holding sniper rifle scopes, stories of

Recently, story broke of Insomniac Games adding a theatre marquee into Marvel’s Spider-Man that popped the question; “Maddie, will you marry me?” for a fan and his girlfriend.
