Cyberpunk 2077 And More Games Coming To Stadia

CD Projekt Red’s anticipated Keanu Reeves vehicle Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Stadia among other games, Google said today in its second Stadia Connect livestream.

Orcs Must Die 3 is coming exclusively to Stadia. The previous game in the series, a free-to-play game called Orcs Must Die: Unchained, released in 2017 but was shut down earlier this year after developer Robot Entertainment said that...

Upcoming Exploration RPG Greedfall Has My Attention

Upcoming Exploration RPG Greedfall Has My Attention

When I was first asked to preview Greedfall, an upcoming RPG by Spiders, I didn’t really know what to expect. Its vast world, packed with ruins and frontier towns, captured a sense of discovery but also evoked a strange apprehension in me. Greedfall brims with potential and clever ideas, yet even after playing it, I can’t tell if it will mark a powerful recreation of BioWare-esque storytelling...

No Man's Sky Players Are Really Excited About Sitting In Chairs

No Man's Sky Players Are Really Excited About Sitting In Chairs

The universe of No Man’s Sky is huge. Like genuinely huge. Billions upon billions upon billions of planets, galaxies, and solar systems. And the latest update to the game added a ton of new features to this already massive galactic sandbox, including VR support. But the most exciting feature might just be the ability to stop traveling, take a seat in a chair and dangle your feet.

Last week,

Mario Maker Contest: International Cat Day, Winners!

Mario Maker Contest: International Cat Day, Winners!

Last week I asked you wonderful people to create some cat-themed Mario levels in celebration of International Cat Day. It was time to honor our cats by turning a plumber into a cat and throwing him at some enemies and jumps. It is the only way to celebrate cats.

I got..some levels. Compared to previous contests, this was a smaller amount of levels to choose from so I’ll have a smaller number...

Until 2012 You Could Watch Netflix On A PS2 In Brazil

Until 2012 You Could Watch Netflix On A PS2 In Brazil

Netflix on consoles was a much different experience a decade ago. Today users just download an app, login and start watching some TV or movies. But back in 2009, depending on your console, you might have to order a disc from Netflix and link your account to their service to watch whatever was on Netflix in 2009. Amazingly, even some PS2 owners could get these discs.

Stop Skeletons From...

I Described 47 Video Game Box Covers From Memory

I Described 47 Video Game Box Covers From Memory

My friend Alex Jaffe sent me a list of 47 video game titles. Without looking at the list, I stepped in front of a camera. Our producer CJ read the list one name at a time. I tried to describe what each game’s box looked like. This was a terrible idea. I loved it.

Of course, my friend Alex Jaffe didn’t want to just send me a list of classic fan-favorite video games. He had to send me a list that...

We Need More Funny Video Games

We Need More Funny Video Games

Comedy is one of the toughest things to get right. A lot of what makes humor connect is delivery and timing, whether it be an energetic setup to a deadpan punchline or an awkward silence left to linger in a movie scene. Games have plenty of throwaway jokes, which do shine in games like Uncharted, but they rarely lean into the humor the way I wish they would. Games where the humor is a defining...

26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie

26 Years Later, Here's A Deleted Scene From The Super Mario Bros. Movie

As terrible as it was, the 1993 Mario Bros. movie has a cult following online, led by the dedicated team at SMBmovie.com, who have spent years cataloguing and uploading everything you’d ever want to know —and a lot of stuff you wouldn’t—about the film. In May, they hit paydirt: they got hold of an old VHS tape that contained deleted scenes from the movie.

The scenes are pretty rough, and were...

Man Caught Playing Pokemon Go On Eight Phones In His Car

Man Caught Playing Pokemon Go On Eight Phones In His Car

You know how there’s a warning on Pokemon Go not to play the game while driving? This guy never got the memo, and when he is eventually sent it, needs it sent another seven times, just to be sure.

As The Seattle Times reports, Washington State troopers noticed a car stopped on the shoulder of a busy highway on Tuesday night, and pulled over to see if the driver needed assistance.

Instead, they...

Apex Legends Players Are Teaming Up To Ruin Solo Mode

Apex Legends Players Are Teaming Up To Ruin Solo Mode

Apex Legends’ limited-time solo mode provides an enjoyable change of pace from the frantic, team focused default. It’s a chance to be more tactical. Unfortunately, solo mode is being completely ruined by sneaky players coordinating to make unofficial teams.

Apex’s solo mode, which started on Tuesday and lasts until August 27th, kicks ass. It is so good, offering a delightful change of pace...

Getting Drunk In GTA Online's Casino Unlocks A New Secret Mission

Getting Drunk In GTA Online's Casino Unlocks A New Secret Mission

The recently added casino in Grand Theft Auto Online has become a popular spot for players and has led to GTA Online reaching its highest number of active players since launch. But while the slot machines and card games are a big draw, there is a secret hidden in the casino for those willing to get really drunk, possibly multiple times.

The secret mission involves the player waking up after...

Apex Legends Gets Some Very Nice Toys

Apex Legends Gets Some Very Nice Toys

Weta, who in addition to being a special effects house are also a merch company, have a bunch of Apex Legends stuff coming out, ranging from little vinyl figures to more expensive statues.

Statues first: they’ll be out in December, stand around 9 inches tall and cost $100. They’re called figures, but since they’re set in elaborate poses and are 100% immovable, I’m calling them statues. If...

Henry Cavill Is Now Geralt In The Witcher 3, Too

Henry Cavill Is Now Geralt In The Witcher 3, Too

We have come full circle. No longer is Henry Cavill just playing Geralt in Netflix’s Witcher adaptation, but he is now replacing Geralt in The Witcher 3 itself thanks to a mod that I’m honestly surprised took this long to turn up.

Adnan’s Henry Cavill mod swaps Geralt’s old-ass face and replaces it with a decent approximation of Superman’s, and in keeping with the traditions of a man involved...

'We Know We’re Not Taking It Far Enough': A Ubisoft VP Wrestles With Politics In Games

A couple of months ago, in a meeting room on the outskirts of the Los Angeles Convention Center during the E3 gaming show, Ubisoft’s Tommy Francois described what he thought would be the ultimate video game.

It would be “a matrix where you get one thousand lives, where you get one thousand mistakes and within these thousand mistakes you get all these different points of view and you get...

Twitter Bot Hosts Never-Ending Jeopardy Game

Twitter Bot Hosts Never-Ending Jeopardy Game

Twitter is a place where adults yell at each other for no reason and pretend that the world isn’t ending. It’s also a place for fun games and bots. A Twitter account called Endless Jeopardy is providing computer generated trivia questions every 15 minutes, for a game that will never end. (Well, at least until Twitter is finally, finally shut down.)

Endless Jeopardy is the creation of musician...

Good news for folks who both need speed and feel nostalgic for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
