First, there were snakes on a plane. Then, we had sharks in tornadoes. Now, there is a darker and more prevalent combination of pests and unlikely places they exist: cockroaches in your PS4.
As fun as Far Cry 5 can be, it’s definitely got its share of bugs. There are looping lines of dialogue, inconsistent enemy behavior, physics glitches, and a few bugs that straight-up break the game. I ran into a funny one of those a few nights ago.
Patches are one of the best parts of gaming; you get to play Calvinball in real time, over the span of years. When developers announce their patches, though, they can sound ridiculous whether they’re describing what’s being fixed or introduced.
The absurd dwarf simulation game Dwarf Fortress is a marvel when everything works as intended. It’s just as fun when it breaks.
Which would you rather avoid in the latest Assassin’s Creed game, animals twisted into human shapes, or humans with no faces? It’s a tough call.
It’s hard to beat a game that you can’t even start.
After nearly a month, Ubisoft has patched a bug in Rainbow Six Siege involving Doc, the game’s medic. The bug was big enough that players actually pressured one another to use it in ranked matches, and in extreme cases, killed fellow teammates if they didn’t use it.

Infinite Warfare’s June 27 update had a hilarious, disastrous bug: the Proteus rifle would automatically kill every enemy in a player’s view if it was fired from the hip. Players slid around the maps taking out everybody in single shots. Infinity Ward patched it out later that evening, but the video evidence remains.
It all started when I thought I saw a bug crawling across my computer monitor.
No one likes having their game crash on them, but it’s gotta be especially painful when you’re in the middle of marathon speedrunning session.
During last week’s North American League of Legends Championship Series matches, FlyQuest drafted a Mordekaiser pick for their marksman player Johnny “Altec” Ru. It was a potent pick for the team in their match against Envy, winning both games in FlyQuest’s 2-1 victories.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a pretty good video game. I like many things about it. It is beautiful. I haven’t predicted where the story’s going yet. I get a kick out of running errands for people. Some of the quests have me genuinely unsure what decision to make.
