According to Overwatch’s story, Hana Song used to be a professional StarCraft 2 player. That’s DVA’s entire schtick, really: she’s a big gamer. Fans have run with that premise, and taken it to its logical (and somehow adorable) conclusion.
Hardcore Henry is the dream of 1990s video games come to life. It’s a movie that fully realizes some video game makers’ horny pursuit of the hyperreal, only to invert that desire with viscerally cartoonish results.

Last weekend, someone completed one of the most incredible Fallout 3 runs of all time. The rules for the permadeath playthrough were simple: One lifebar. No healing. No radiation treatments. No companions.
Watch as these players defy the laws of physics and turn jumping into an art form in Halo 5.
In the 100+ hours I’ve played Fallout 4, I’ve been a pretty heroic dude. Well...with one exception.
Fallout veterans know about the “Alien Blaster,” a special (and powerful) weapon that’s made an appearance in every Fallout game in the franchise to date. Here’s a video guide on how you’ll find it in Fallout 4. Written instructions below, too!
