You surely remember a time you said a word to yourself and started laughing. Something about the syllables bouncing around your mouth just didn’t make sense. Maybe the word was “booby” or “piss” or “dingus” or “moist.” Maybe it was the name “Brumbpo Tungus” or “Scrimmy Bingus.” Well thankfully, now science is here to…
When people got mad, they used to sent a letter. In the internet era, if somebody’s going to use non-electronic mail—which, as I understand it, is powered by snails and horses—it has to be elaborate. Case in point: an EVE Online player who tried to mail one of CCP’s designers a bag full of candy shaped like dicks and…
In 2014, we published a list of video game people to follow on Twitter. I’m not sure I’d give the same advice today.
When Bioware first showed off Mass Effect: Andromeda, some fans didn’t care about the premise, the story, or the combat. The question many of us had was, “what aliens can I fuck this time?”
From eBay: “This is the only Switch that has a Triforce cut into the screen....This item doesn’t work as a video game console but is a terrific piece of art.”
Watching this gave me intense flashbacks to every scene in the 2002 Spider-Man movie where Willem Dafoe’s voice floated out from behind an expressionless Green Goblin mask. What a bad idea, right?
Has it really been three years since the internet collectively tried using Twitch chat to control a single Pokémon game? Time flies. Even more absurd: Twitch Plays Pokémon is still going, and the latest iteration may be the best one yet.
The Roll Safe meme, in which logically sound but absurd advice is accompanied by someone pointing to their head with a knowing half grin, has slowly been building up steam since late January. But late last week the Internet joke hit critical mass in the gaming world when Nintendo took it to a new plateau of absurdity…
So for the last two weeks, my PlayStation 4 hasn’t been working.
When YouTube’s biggest star swore that he was going to delete his channel after gaining 50 million subscribers, fans didn’t know what to believe. Some thought he was really going through with it, and prepared for the worst. Today, Felix Kjellberg comes clean, revealing that it was just a joke all along.
Ryan Reynolds was named GQ’s Man of the Year. And, to celebrate, he interviewed himself. Of course, Reynolds thrives on self-owns, so this “interview” with his “twin” ended up exactly as you’d expect.
When I watch a funny movie scene, I laugh. Sometimes really hard. Sometimes I might even remember the lines in a quiet moment of the day and chuckle to myself. But I’ll never think about those scenes as much as the folks from CineFix do. They dug really deep into the different methods films use to make us laugh and…
They say you shouldn’t rush into a new marriage, but screw it. This is the funniest use of speedrunning I’ve seen lately.
For years, Pokémon fans have argued over what happens when a monster is recalled into a Pokeball. The theories are endless.
The Nintendo Switch looks pretty cool, actually, but that doesn’t mean the Internet won’t make fun of it.
The latest episode of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD featured a slightly unhinged Australian demolitions expert. You can probably see where this is going.
For most players, the Elite Four is a place to take high level Pokémon, as they can sweep through the league with ease. Sometimes, though, you find a clever way to get through the final boss in Pokémon.
Get a room, guys.
Most Overwatch characters are not related to each other, but as far as the community is concerned? The roster might as well be a big ‘ol family. Soldier 76, with his grumpy gruffness and ample experience in the field, is of course the dad.
