Guitar Hero Is Back This Fall, And You'll Only Need Three Fingers

“This is stupid,” I try to tell myself. “Weren’t music games just a fad?” For one long minute, I struggle to hit a single note on my plastic axe, as game developers and PR people fire eye-daggers into the back of my head. But then, all of a sudden, it clicks. I’m strumming up a storm. I’m playing the new … » 4/14/15 10:28am 4/14/15 10:28am

Lego Dimensions transports your bricks and Minifigs into a video game

If there was any doubt that video games that allow kids to bring their physical toys into the actual game were more than just a fad, Lego and Warner Bros.

It's impossible to tell the difference between real life and video games

I know which one is reality and which one is video game graphics and yet my brain keeps flip flopping and pretending like the video game is real life and real life is actually the game. The graphics are so impressive that in some angles, I honestly can't tell which is which. » 4/07/15 9:13pm 4/07/15 9:13pm

Hyperkin Wants To Turn Your Phone Into a Game Boy


It’s a dangerously day to be teasing awesome retro novelty products, but Hyperkin is at it anyway. The company just announced that the Smart Boy design concept it posted on Reddit —a special iPhone case that lets you play real, physical Nintendo Game Boy cartridges on your smartphone—is for real.

Watching all the gory Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X destroyed my eyes

Don't watch this video if you get queasy by pixel created blood and hyperrealistic video game gore. Because good lord the Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X are downright disgusting to see. If you remember the game, players are supposed to "finish" a character with a brutal Fatality move after a fight and these news ones… » 3/30/15 2:49pm 3/30/15 2:49pm

Is Internet Addiction a Real Thing?

Dear Lifehacker,
Is it possible for someone to actually be addicted to the Internet? I mean, we all love our phones, and maybe I check mine whenever it buzzes, but is that the same as being addicted to alcohol or drugs? I've heard of people being so addicted to video games that they forgot to eat or feed their kid.… » 3/25/15 1:15pm 3/25/15 1:15pm

A DIY Classic Game & Watch Handheld Made With an Old Nokia Cellphone

Before the Game Boy came along, handheld gaming consoles were limited to just a single title, played on a low-quality segmented LCD display. At the time it was cutting edge stuff, but by today's standards they kind of suck. So to scratch his nostalgic gaming itch, Instructables contributor Andrew Hannay built his own… » 3/23/15 5:38pm 3/23/15 5:38pm

Making a real life version of Link's shield from The Legend of Zelda

Making a real life version of Link's iconic Hylian Shield from the Legend of Zelda may be the most impressive weapon Man at Arms: Reforged has ever made. It required a perfect design, a lot of grunt work in curving the metal sheet, expert embossing and basically melting pieces of metal together to form the final… » 3/23/15 3:14pm 3/23/15 3:14pm

Light Your Maze of a Bedroom With a Glowing Pac-Man Ghost

The maze that Pac-Man has to navigate in his quest to gobble up all those pellets is nothing compared to the laundry-covered floor that most of us have to tip-toe through on our way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. And while the ghosts in Pac-Man serve as a hindrance, this color-changing pixelated lamp will… » 3/23/15 9:19am 3/23/15 9:19am

Guy inserts himself inside a video game to fight video game characters

I'm pretty sure every Cheetos eater on Earth who has ever played a video game has wished that they could play themselves as a character inside a video game. This excellently edited and riotously fun video from Keren Banget makes that dream come true, he "put" his real human self inside a fighting game to fight video… » 3/12/15 10:40pm 3/12/15 10:40pm
