Human Resources RTS Has Giant Robot and Monster Battles

Human Resources RTS Has Giant Robot and Monster Battles
I rarely get excited about Kickstarter projects. They often don’t make it (either with or without funding) and therefore can be a bit of a letdown. It’s even rarer that I get excited about video games or movies that hit Kickstarter seeking money, but I am very excited about Human Resources.

Minecraft Hits PS Vita, Kids may Actually Want the Portable now
My daughter has a tablet and the only thing she does on it is play Minecraft. If she wants to play on my phone, Minecraft is the game she goes after. Sony may have just hit one out of the park by offering Minecraft for the PS Vita.

Super Mario vs. Mortal Kombat: Finish Them

Super Mario vs. Mortal Kombat: Finish Them
Video games are a bit like comic books in the sense that at some point most gamers have sat around talking about who would win if a fight broke out between characters from this game and that game.

Modder Turns Doom into Donkey Kong Country

Modder Turns Doom into Donkey Kong Country
I never thought I would see these two games together. A modder named DooMero made this version of Donkey Kong Country for GZDoom. That’s right, it basically turns Doom into a Donkey Kong platform game. Let’s just call it Donkey Doom.

Sims 4 Glitch Gives You a Demon Baby

Sims 4 Glitch Gives You a Demon Baby

Video Game Beatdown: Mario vs. Minecraft Steve

Video Game Beatdown: Mario vs. Minecraft Steve
Have you ever wondered who would win a fight between two characters from different games? I have, I think that Prophet from Crysis would decimate them all, personally. On a more mundane, I’m not going to kill everyone front, who do you think would win between Mario or Minecraft Steve?

When the Skylanders game launched and became crazy popular with kids, it made big money not only on software but also on action figure sales. Each of those action figures was designed so that gamers could place them on the portal and import them into their game to play.

Final Fantasy III Screen Door Pixel Art: Mesh for Fantasy

Final Fantasy III Screen Door Pixel Art: Mesh for Fantasy
I’m not sure why we don’t see more classic art from old video games rendered lovingly on a screen door. The little squares on the screen door material are perfect for representing blocky pixelated graphics. All you need to do is look at this Final Fantasy III art to see that a screen door is the perfect medium.

Turn Any Floor into an 8-bit Video Game Map with These Tiles

Sonic the Hedgehog Spinning into Theaters with New Movie

Sonic the Hedgehog Spinning into Theaters with New Movie
I have played more than a few Sonic the Hedgehog games in my day. Honestly though, I have always though of Sonic as a second-tier game hero next to Mario and some other characters in the earlier days of gaming.

Goat Simulator Patch Notes are as Weird as the Game

Goat Simulator Patch Notes are as Weird as the Game
Yes, there really is a game called Goat Simulator. In the game, you get to do stuff in the form of a goat. It sounds really weird, in a hilarious sort of way. The game has recently been patched and along with the patch came some patch notes.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Gets a Rifle that 3D Prints Ammo

The Last of Us Remastered PS4 Pre-Orders Tipped on Sony Online Store

Classic Arcade Game Gauntlet Is Returning #NeedFoodBadly
1985′s Gauntlet was an amazing game that I spent way too many hours (and quarters) playing in the arcade. So I’m excited for its return so I can add even more hours to my record. Gauntlet fans have been waiting for this for some time.
