The Internet Reacts Ridiculously To Ellen Page's Game

While YouTube comments are infamous for being crappy, and while Beyond: Two Souls is kind of an unconventional game, watching these absurd reactions to a Beyond trailer is still rather cringe-worthy. The things people say, man. » 10/24/13 9:30pm 10/24/13 9:30pm

Beyond's Ghostly Companion Is Quite The Real-World Prankster

It was only a matter of time before the lovable punks at Mega 64 took on Beyond: Two Souls for some real-world mockery. And lo, they have done so, and it's pretty funny.
