Look, I’m normally not the type to criticize someone for an adventurous and unorthodox haircut. Lord knows I’ve had my share of the same. And in fact, I’ve supported the different looks Paul Pogba has tried out in recent times, some of which I’ll get to below. But this Pokémon-inspired deal is a bridge too far:
Who are you?
This poor kid was stuffed inside a hot dog costume and entered into a race with two other kids: Ketchup and Relish. Our friend was Mustard and as soon as he made the turn down the right field line his pants started falling down. It was only a matter of time, then. He ate it so hard, and then he ate it again.
We're loath to see the Sochi Olympics go—truth be told, a few of us are starting to miss Nightmare Bear—so we enlisted the help of old video game consoles to help recreate some of the Winter Games' most memorable moments. Hockey, freestyle skiing, curling—they're all here, backed up by an NES, a Sega Genesis, PSX, and…
Real life is the game that everyone is playing. But it can be tough. This is your guide.
Well, that's one way to put Titanfall on the PS4, I guess.
Seattle's Richard Sherman didn't just swat away San Francisco's shot at a Super Bowl, he also crapped all over the 49ers' Michael Crabtree in a postgame interview straight out of Piper's Pit. Sherman mocked Crabtree's credentials while boasting of his own. So I wondered: Is there any objective proof for his claims?
Someone on Twitter is reenacting Back to the Future—"in real time"—creating nearly 50 accounts for all of the characters (and the DeLorean). If you like the movie, you'll love The Hill Valley Project. Seven hours ago, Marty saved George from getting run over, and he should wake up in Lorraine's bedroom any minute now.
Every Single Hat in Team Fortress 2, Worn by a Single Character: This is only a tiny snapshot of all forty-lebem-sebemty-thirteen TF2 hats that Spy has equipped, all at once, in a drawing by DeviantArt's AshleyLange. Trust me, the stack goes up way, way, higher than this. Can you identify them all? This guy tried.
Madden NFL has a "fantasy draft" option—which disperses all of the players and has every team draft a new roster before beginning your career mode. If you pick that, here's how the game's fake Twitter stream reacts. Good to see that ESPN's tinhorn orchestra, Skip Bayless, stays true to character in it.
Years ago, all LEGO minifigures had a placid, happy expression and a pointedly non-ethnic skintone that fit their role in the larger LEGO universe: They were props, the same as a tree or a fire hydrant. But as LEGO has made more movie tie-ins—and video games—its minifigs have become more brooding. Darker. Angrier.
Either Hip-Hop Gamer's an official greeter at Los Angeles International Airport, or he was waiting patiently for Kotaku to touch down there today, as he was the first guy the gang saw after getting off the flight. Here, editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo models HHG's state-of-the-art, platform-agnostic pants holder-upper.
It's Memorial Day weekend, and today also is the 36th anniversary of Star Wars' release. This is a perfect time to remember all of the pilots from Gold and Red squadrons who didn't make it back. Stay on target!
Well, now. This .gif series gets a big ole George Takei "Oh my ..." It's just someone doing suggestive things to a Nintendo 64 controller, is that NSFW? Well, yeah, because I'd probably get arrested for showing it to a minor.
Hats off to IGN for making the past into a prologue with this PlayStation 4 hype video demake starring a pornstached Leonard Nimoy from 30 years ago. My God, I think the last time I heard that opening synthesizer anthem was in a Raycom highlight show before Maryland and Duke played in the 1984 ACC Tournament final.
Everyone's familiar with the great video game burial of 1983, a disposal of Atari 2600 cartridges so bizarre it's often taken to be urban myth. No, that's really how they got rid of colossal flops like E.T. and the Pac-Man port, 30 years ago this September.
