Jingle bells, Dutch smells, Lenny downed a beer, and yesterday Rockstar issued an update to Red Dead Online that brings a touch of festivity to the online portion of Red Dead Redemption 2. No, sadly there are no Santa hats or mountable reindeer, but it’s actually a delicate touch that breathes some more life into the

Another day, another person trying to cash in on their modicum of “fame” by suing Epic Games and Fortnite for utilizing their own dance moves in-game. This time around, the famous household name Backpack Kid (Russell Horning), the supposed inventor of the Floss dance, is looking to milk a few bucks out of Epic. If you’ve been around

I have a confession to make: for the past ten years, I’ve been using the Wii Remote to play Super Smash Bros. You may be asking yourself why? Why on God’s green earth would someone devote years of their life to experiencing Smash in the (seemingly) least intuitive way? Well, my friends, it all started out of convenience. Listen up,

I’ve got two loves of my life: gaming and the US (read “best”) version of The Office. And in a weird turn of events, both of those interests merged when a Fortnite player re-created the series iconic office space — Dunder Mifflin Scranton — with the in-game creation tools.

In the age of corporate sponsorships and product placement dominating the world around you, a brand deal like The Schick Hydrobot terrorizing the red carpet at The Game Awards 2016 seems normal, even if horrifically creepy and a disgrace to the world. Brands want to get tap into the growing market of video games by all

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. FNBRLeaks is well known for giving users information

Usually, police stories these days don’t end too well, but this is a story that’ll brighten up your mid-week blues and it’s just another piece of evidence how much gaming brings people together, especially Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – where everyone and their granny seems to be giving it a go lately. Jovante M. Williams

While fans of Shovel Knight may be disappointed that the titular protagonist is not playable in the top-selling Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, they can at least take the consolation prize of the character’s appearance as a non-playable Assist Trophy. To see a character from an independent video game rub elbows with the likes of Mario is still

There were a lot of great games that won some well-deserved awards tonight at The Game Awards 2018, but perhaps one of the most noteworthy releases of the year that left empty-handed was that of Marvel’s Spider-Man. Yes, despite being nominated in a variety of different categories, Marvel’s Spider-Man didn’t take home any hardware, most often losing to

Back in September, Capcom unveiled “Subhuman”, Dante’s theme in Devil May Cry 5. While the song itself was received well enough, it was subsequently pulled due to controversy surrounding featured vocalist Eddie Hermida. Today, almost three months after the song was pulled, Capcom announced on their official blog that “Subhuman” would still be Dante’s theme in

Some people may have entirely missed our article of the Redditor painstakingly turning the Monday-hating, lasagna-eating Garfield as a retro-styled horror game on Game Boy. Everyone who read the article is probably hoping to forget this exists. But ever since that article published, Redditor/YouTube channel LumpyTouch has been adapting that art to animations. And through
