In case you were feeling somehow short on online content to consume today, here is a video of Tocen clicking a mouse one million times. It took him 17.5 hours to do, and he filmed the whole thing.
I went to the set of this year’s annual Puppy Bowl, and I made sure to bring a camera. The more I type, the more you’ll have to scroll past to see the baby animals, so I’ll cut that shit out.
It’s been said that video games are all smoke-and-mirrors—elaborate feats of code and trickery that imply possibilities far greater than what you’re actually able to do. Sometimes, though, the truth is much stranger. Sometimes the truth is radios powered by invisible cats.
In Japan, cat cafe Nekoya has been uploading feline friends in cosplay. Some of the outfits are purrfect.
I’ve always thought of Geralt of Rivia as a big ol’ cat. I know they call him The White Wolf, but come on: the guy is a cat. So it’s been bumming me out that after a recent patch to the game, all the cats in the Northern Realms seem to hate the guy even more than they already did.
If you love collecting virtual cats and you have Android Nougat, you’re in luck: Google dropped a cat-collecting easter egg called Android Neko into the latest version of Android, and while it’s not nearly as fun as Neko Atsume, you do get to collect cats by putting out treats.

This is Koyuki. She is a 9 years-old, a Scottish Fold, and never looks like a happy camper.
Mobile games should all implement Neko Atsume’s criteria: full of adorable cats you can buy toys for—for their entertainment and yours. But just like real life, not all things can be purrfect. Not even my new-found furry mobile friends. That’s why ranking all 53 of them—from worst to best—seems a logical thing to do.
During crowded train rides and shows that require just half of my attention, I play games on my phone. Some condescendingly refer to this as “casual gaming,” but some mobile titles can be just as exciting as a chain reaction of explosions in a big-budget console game like Just Cause 3.

The Summoner class in Blade & Soul, NCsoft’s latest massively multiplayer Korean import, get to choose a feline companion to fight by their side for the rest of their days. There are other classes to play in the current closed beta, but they are not important.
