God Of War Makes Its Violence Matter God Of War Makes Its Violence Matter

Video games are serious now. It’s no longer enough for AAA video games to have sleek graphics, hours upon hours of playable content, and innovative game mechanics. They also need top-notch voice acting, cinematic cutscenes featuring real actors performing in motion-capture suits, and a compelling story with all sorts…

Sea Of Thieves's Ocean Is Vast And Beautiful And Lifelike And It Won't Stop Putting Me To Sleep

Reviews have knocked Sea of Thieves, the big new multiplayer pirate video game for Windows and Xbox, for its lack of content, for repetitive quest structure, and for generally feeling sort of hollow and unfinished. My colleague Heather Alexandra over at Kotaku wrote that playing it “feels a bit like working in a…

Gordon Hayward's Daughter Crashed His Big Fortnite Stream And Almost Made Him Lose Gordon Hayward's Daughter Crashed His Big Fortnite Stream And Almost Made Him Lose

Gordon Hayward has long been a prolific gamer, and it seems he’s spent his recovery from that horrific leg injury playing Overwatch, Destiny 2, and, most recently, Fortnite. The free-to-play battle royale game has crossed over into the mainstream in a way that no video game has since Pokemon Go, with Drake even…

Let's Remember Some Games Let's Remember Some Games

Earlier today, a random series of events brought to my mind the rap song from Donkey Kong 64. A great song, and a great game. Maybe you’ve forgotten about Donkey Kong 64 :( But now you remember it. Let’s remember some other video games:

Hey, This Dude Is Beating Both Punch-Out!! Games Simultaneously Hey, This Dude Is Beating Both Punch-Out!! Games Simultaneously

Tonight in some incredible video, this dude is using one controller—and a splitter—to beat both games. (He just beat Don Flamenco in 14 seconds, somehow.) WATCH AND BE AMAZED:

UNC Star Joel Berry II Loses Video Game, Punches Door, Breaks Hand UNC Star Joel Berry II Loses Video Game, Punches Door, Breaks Hand

Anyone with a True Gamer’s Heart knows the soul-shattering frustration of getting owned. It is only through sheer force of luck that what happened to North Carolina guard Joel Berry II hasn’t happened to us all. Berry, the Most Outstanding Player of the 2017 Final Four, was apparently playing video games with teammate…

Why Are Video Games
So Goddamn Hard To Make? Why Are Video Games So Goddamn Hard To Make?

I am the kind of ungrateful video game consumer who will instantly write off a game if it has just a single, microscopic bug within it. “Whoa hey, the picture just skipped a frame! What kinda of fat slovenly losers designed this piece of shit?!” Of course, the reality is that making a video game, even a bad one,…

Destiny 2 Is So Good And It Makes Me Feel Loony Destiny 2 Is So Good And It Makes Me Feel Loony

Early in the story campaign of Destiny 2, you are tasked with reclaiming a lost arcology, found floating in a methane ocean on the Saturnine moon of Titan, from a race of alien bug assholes called the Hive. After leaping around on some platforms, you plunge headfirst into an overgrown nest of Hive monsters, which only…

Here Are Some Good Madden 18 Glitches  Here Are Some Good Madden 18 Glitches 

The newest Madden game just came out, and it has an interactive story mode that actually sounds really cool. After waiting six months for the game to go on sale for $20, I’ll probably give it a whirl. The rest of the game is about what you expect by now. Those who pay 60 bucks year after year for the game see…

John Wall Is Not Letting This 2K Rating Out Of His Teeth John Wall Is Not Letting This 2K Rating Out Of His Teeth

It started with 2K Sports tweeting out screenshots from NBA 2K18 that included the overall ratings of the players depicted. Here is our man John Wall’s edition:

Belated Nintendo Switch Review: The Nintendo Switch Rules So Hard Belated Nintendo Switch Review: The Nintendo Switch Rules So Hard

This era of console gaming is a strange one, owing partially to the fact that about five years ago, many people in the industry feared consumers would reject bulky $300 consoles in favor of cheaper and nimbler competitors like the iPhone and the iPad. Why pay so much for games you can only play in front of your TV at…

God Help Me, I Don't Like The New Legend Of Zelda Game God Help Me, I Don't Like The New Legend Of Zelda Game

Breath of the Wild, the latest installment in Nintendo’s beloved Legend of Zelda series, has received basically universal acclaim since its release back at the beginning of this month. If the still-early reception were to crystallize today, it would go down as one of the most widely and ecstatically praised video…

I Can’t Stop Playing This Shitty iPhone Football Game I Can’t Stop Playing This Shitty iPhone Football Game

Football season is over, which means that I am forced to fill the gaping void in my life with booze, drugs, utterly worthless draft speculation, whatever has been gathering dust on the DVR, and (oh God) family interaction. OR DO I? You fellow GAMERS like me out there (I play games on my phone, which is the most…

Tom Brady And Dwight Freeney Play Video Game On Conan; Marshawn Lynch Steals Show

Takeaways from Conan O’Brien’s lasted edition of the now-annual Super Bowl Clueless Gamer segment: the Patriots are going to beat the Falcons; Tom Brady comes off as empty-headed as you’d imagine; Marshawn Lynch is still the best.

I Spent Two Weeks As A True Overwatch Idiot I Spent Two Weeks As A True Overwatch Idiot

Overwatch, they say, is about teamwork. They’re correct, but what they don’t tell you (because it should be obvious to anyone with a child’s understanding of how video games work) is that you shoot at your opponents, not your teammates. It would appear that I merely have an overgrown baby’s understanding of video…

FIFA Player Concedes Just The Dumbest Goal FIFA Player Concedes Just The Dumbest Goal

Once I was playing the FIFA 17 demo and I somehow managed to score an own goal while trying to do a goal kick. That self-own pales in comparison to the goalmouth-scrambler conceded by Reddit user redz615 yesterday. Please enjoy the cinematic sendup that this dumb goal truly deserves.
