The trademark main entrance, the visitor center and a damaged fence from Jurassic Park, all built around a lucky Leopard tortoise called Louie by Oliver Turpin.
Who needs guns in a video game when you can tame and command bears and saber-toothed tigers to kill for you? That’s what I’ve been doing in Far Cry Primal, though there’s something to be said for just stopping and petting these furry four-legged instruments of death.
Hidden across all of Los Santos are secret drugs that let your GTA V character do wild, funny things. There are twenty seven of them—and if you want to find them all, you've come to the right place.
Grand Theft Auto V isn't even out for PC, and the game is already getting some very...unique takes from the modding community. Just take this one, which looks like a hybrid Frankenstein monster made of spare parts from GTA, Tokyo Jungle, and Goat Simulator:
Dogs are big, dumb, infinitely lovable obedience machines. Cats—love 'em, hate 'em, or spend half your day giggleweeping to Internet videos of them—are anything but. Why are they so willfully difficult? What's going on in their heads? The short version: we don't really know.
We know all about humans learning to empathize with goats thanks to the instant classic that is Goat Simulator. But who knew goats could master such a wide range of human emotions? Here's a whole different kind of game of goats. Be careful if you play this one, though. Because when you do, you win or you NEAHHH.
In Japan, popstars and celebrities aren't the only ones with handshaking events: Otters have them, too.
You read that headline right. Chinese internet giant NetEase will soon be selling pork.
Animals are dangerous, especially wild animals. You do not want to mess with them. This, however, is not a wild animal.
Just like cats, man's best friend is a returning character in every genre. We've selected those video game dogs—from games both old and new—which are usually portrayed as companions; sidekicks who can both help us with minor tasks and save our asses in difficult situations.
I had no idea all these animals could make these sounds. Some aren't so surprising—goats screaming videos have been floating around the web this week. And some, like the frogs—the frogs!! What the heck!?
Witness Kinect: Nat Geo TV, or at least witness a Kinect mini-game in Kinect: Nat Geo TV. It's teaching our video editor Chris Person all about animals, as you can see in this clip.
We breed them, kill them, cook them. Millions of man-hours have been spent flinging Angry Birds at them, but has anyone ever tried playing video games with them? A team of livestock ethics researchers and game designers in the Netherlands is doing just that with Pig Chase.
I've seen orangutans play video games on a touch screen, but this is the first lizard. And this Bearded Dragon doesn't need opposable thumbs to master the art of gaming, he uses his tongue.
Hard-working professionals (who usually stand on two feet) are paid to sound like dogs and, now horses in the video game series The Sims 3 Pets. Today, we present footage of some of their work.
Britain's hedgehog population is in crisis, with many falling victim to roadkill. Sega staged a "hedgehog road crossing" to raise awareness of the creatures, and, of course, Sonic Colors. Here one's fitted with red booties. Seen via Daily Mail.
On the topic of shooting animals in Red Dead Redemption, one player of Rockstar's big Western writes to Kotaku about his resistance to killing virtual bison.
Do Red Dead Redemption players hate crows? I shoot virtual deer and wolves a lot in that fantastic video game Western, but look at these stats, pulled from the Rockstar Social Club:
