Half-Life 2 has my favorite moment in any game. It’s this:
Modder Valplushka gave a thorough overhaul to a quadcopter and brought to life the single most annoying enemy in Half-Life 2. All this time, the dystopian haunts of City 17 were just a town in modern day Russia.
Billie Lourd says she’ll be back in a bigger capacity for Star Wars: Episode VIII. A Thor supporting character may not return for Ragnarok. . Plus new details for Scream Queens’ next season, set pictures from Wonder Woman, and a ton of clips from tonight’s Supergirl. Spoilers now!

As for the specs inside the box, there's a 300 MHz…
The Trakonya Mutator attaches to a gamer's wrist and will then shock said gamer if they screw up in-game.
