Undertale’s stigma as a toxic fandom arose after incidents involving harassed YouTubers, pornography, and fans who plastered the internet with in-game jokes. Over time, a game that started out as heartwarming and lovable gained infamy for supposedly having one of the worst fandoms on the internet. Undertale’s descent…
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.
The amount of work that Superhero Pop put into this video is insane, from the appearances of the characters to the pitch-perfect recreation of the 1980s. I’m kind of in love with this.
It’s hard to imagine, but the cast of Mortal Kombat weren’t always adults. At some point, they were kids.
There are few games with more loyal followings than System Shock 2, Ken Levine's classic sci-fi horror game. System Shock Infinite, an ambitious fan mod, kicks into gear as the game ends.
It might have taken two years to make, but this StarCraft 2 diorama is just adorable.
And an office cooler water jug.
Recently game studio Red Thread ran a competition to include fan-made music in revered adventure revival Dreamfall Chapters. Or at least, they tried to.
One of the risks in following a new webcomic is that the story might never end. You might end up with a comic that goes on for years only to have the creator abandon it. But there are some great webcomics out there that have wrapped up their storylines instead of fading into oblivion, leaving hundreds—and sometimes…
As Vlambeer, the studio I work at, has gotten bigger and our community has grown beyond our biggest fans, I've noticed a shift in the way people interact with us. Where we used to mostly get messages of support and understanding, the ratio of messages that treat us like two guys making video games versus those that…
Breaking Bad has an ending—maybe you've watched it? And maybe that ending played out the way you thought it would. Or maybe you had your own ending in mind...perhaps something more like these fan-servicey endings created by CollegeHumor?
Tuesday night I went to interview dedicated fans of Grand Theft Auto about the series they love enough to stay up all night for. Like most fans they were jovial, amiable and more complicated than I would ever assume. In the video above, they told me why they love the series so.
It can't be easy to be a BioWare writer. You and your co-workers run yourselves ragged crafting huge, sprawling stories, and afterwards you're subjected to all manner of intense feedback, much of it shouted by the more extreme corners of your fanbase.
Sonic fans sometimes have a notorious reputation among the general internet populace that we're terribly annoying, way too demanding, and that we have an unwarranted sense of entitlement. As a fan, I can boldly proclaim that while all of that is 100 percent factual (in an opinion kind of way), I can also say that I'm…
Last month Blizzard announced that it's annual fan convention would be skipping a year, returning in 2012 so the developer can focus on things like developing games. Some fans took this well. The Elysiam World of Warcraft guild on the U.S. Shadowmoon server took to song.
Last year Microsoft introduced the Xbox 360 Slim, a darker, skinnier, and prettier version of the Xbox 360. A body that sexy needs a cooling solution to match. Here comes the Nyko Intercooler STS.
