In a single moment, you can see G2 Esports’ Counter-Strike squad realize they’re going to lose.
The 80s and 90s were a different time, especially when it comes to computer viruses. It’s pretty cool to look back now, when we’re safe from being infected by these old-school nefarious programs.
This is Bro Fist Simulator, a game about the subtle art of the bro fist. Just remember: always close your fingers on contact.
Another week on the books! Another weekend looms! Let’s play some video games.
Minecraft and LEGO go together like peanut butter and jam, or Jeb Bush and his mom, and you can score an all-time low price on the free-form Minecraft Crafting Box today, courtesy of Amazon. Granted, it’s only a couple bucks less than usual, but licensed LEGO sets rarely see huge price drops. [LEGO Minecraft Crafting…
To anyone who ever tells you that programming isn’t creative, show them this. In this video, Sébastien Rannou recreates the whole of Daft Punk’s “Aerodynamic” using just a hundred or so lines of code. And it sounds pretty damn great.
Rise of the Tomb Raider has gotten its first PC patch. The patch fixes some bugs, adds a bunch of small graphics tweaks and optimizations, and remedies Endurance Mode stuttering, among other things. Full patch notes here.
The first woman League of Legends Championship Series player, Maria ‘Remi’ Creveling, has stepped down from the Renegades team due to stress and anxiety, according to the Daily Dot.

We’re two days away from the annual Big Football Game, where the Panthers and Broncos will face one another in a match that would be extremely lopsided if they were actual animals (and may be just as lopsided regardless).
We already knew XCOM 2 wouldn’t support traditional game pads, like the Xbox 360 controller, but it will work with the Steam Controller. They’ll tweak the way it works over time, and consider this an “initial implementation.” Gotta admit, I’m still bummed I can’t play XCOM 2 on my big TV!
