Who would win in a fight between Overwatch and Team Fortress 2? It’s kind of a tired question at this point, but The Winglet used it as the foundation for a charming and funny SFM video that pokes fun at both games. The scene that depicts an encounter with Mei as a horror movie is especially inspired. Also, accurate.
It’s not that Magic cards don’t look great as they are. Some of the best artists on the planet are working on them! It’s just, no lavish painting of a giant angel or whatever can compete with a dumb gif.
A buddy of mine, playing The Witcher 3 for the second time, is going nuts with mods this time through. He sent me an email the other day: “Have you seen this mod that turns old-ass Geralt into young Geralt?”. No, I had not.
Every week or so, Fortnite gets new weapons and items. They sound cool as hell, and some even radically alter the game in novel ways. Notice my use of “sound” here, though. I wouldn’t really know. I am suffering through an agonizing Fortnite curse that always keeps these fabled items just out of my reach, or, more…
Last night, October’s very own hopped back onto Twitch with Fortnite star Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. While the pair didn’t break any records this time around, the subject of Drake’s upcoming album did come up. Apparently, there’s a chance Drake might spit some Fortnite-related fire soon.
As of this writing, a couple hundred people are collectively controlling Mario via a Twitch broadcast. And despite the inherent chaos of Twitch chat, these players are actually making progress in Super Mario Odyssey.
It’s National Sibling Day! Go give them a hug. If you don’t have one—or even if you do—you should also take this quiz to see which video game siblings you’re most like.
Fortnite may be a battle royale game, but at times, it can also be a fashion show. Players judge you based on what you wear, just like most people do in real life.
Just going by Steam reviews, Far Cry 5 is a game about throwing shovels, petting dogs, and enjoying the Montana countryside. Seems legit.
Blizzard’s arena in Los Angeles, California is the real deal. And by that, I mean it has a gift shop, the surest marker of any worth-its-salt sporting enterprise. I have investigated the gift shop; here is a definitive ranking of the items for sale in it, from worst to best.
Once upon a time, there was an NPC Pokémon trainer called “Youngster Joey” who boasted that he owned a Rattata in the top percentage of all Rattatas. Players kicked his ass anyway, of course. Years later, Pokémon fans are still keeping Youngster Joey’s memory alive by training truly powerful Rattata.
Not a day goes by without me hearing about some out of control tale of backstabbing, revenge, and giant monsters from the swashbuckling pirate game Sea of Thieves. Here are a few great stories from the game.
Fortnite mobile’s portability has proven destructive in classrooms around the world, with some teachers struggling to keep their students’ attention from the battle royale game. It seems that developer Epic has caught on, because now the game says something about this hilarious situation.
For months now, teachers everywhere have heard students talk about Fortnite, the world’s latest obsession, nonstop. While the popularity of the game is nothing new, its release on iOS has apparently only made things more intense. Fortnite is now a huge distraction you can now take anywhere, after all.
A lot of the time, video game names sound like they were generated by a machine. So, I decided to see if I could teach a neural network to name a game.
Someone on the Sea of Thieves subreddit asked Rare for a day one patch. Not, like, an update to fix the game or anything, but a literal patch with the number one on it for people’s characters to wear. Today, the company obliged.
Please take some time out of your day to listen to this Pokémon style remix of “Eleanor Rigby.” Almost as much of an earworm as the “dog in a trenchcoat” version.
I used to main Mercy. Now I don’t even play Overwatch. Partly because the growing obsession with the game’s meta among friends was poison to my casual Overwatch habits, but also because Mercy only had one gun.
