This Video Game Parody Of Hudson Yards Is Super Funny, Oh God We're Going To Die

Comedian Conner O’Malley, who you might have previously seen screaming about Howard Shultz or hosting talk shows from a lake, is back with a new video game-themed parody of New York City rich-people compound Hudson Yards that’s both funny and soul crushing and has already aged me five years.

The video opens with a PS1-style loading screen followed by a live-action O’Malley running around the...

Xbox Players Are Digging Out Their Old 360s To Get Around Microsoft's Gamertag Restrictions

Last year Microsoft shrunk the character limit for Gamertags from 15 down to 12, but recently players discovered that limit doesn’t apply on Xbox 360.

In a post shared yesterday on Reddit, user Talers-Username pointed out that when you go to change your Gamertag using the Xbox 360 interface it lets you make on up to 15 characters long. I grabbed my Xbox 360 down from the attic to double check...

Unsolved Mystery: Which Game Industry Exec Did Joe Biden Just Call A 'Little Creep'?

The New York Times published a sprawling interview with Vice President Joe Biden today in which the 2020 presidential candidate calls someone high up in the video game industry a “little creep,” and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

5 Hours In, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Is Not The RPG I Was Hoping For

5 Hours In, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Is Not The RPG I Was Hoping For

I’ve played Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot for five hours so far, and it appears to be part fighting game and part fetch-quest generator. Mostly it’s a rehash of the source material that almost anyone who will be interested in the game will have seen performed half a dozen different ways.
