Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch puts Mario in a variety of expansive environments, including the urban landscape of New Donk City. But what would happen if he found himself in the realer world of Grand Theft Auto? Bad things. Bad, NSFW things that are probably a bit unsettling for wholesome Mario fans. Funny as hell though, so you might want to check it out before Nintendo takes it down. [click to continue…]

For many of us, MMOs are a way to play games, meet people, blow off steam, and have a good time.

Unfortunately, his journey is about to come to an end as the servers are set to shut down at the end of the month. [click to continue…]

Netflix has been having fun creating little side projects (like an actual Netflix and Chill button and Stranger Things recipes) to promote their original programming. Their latest is a free online game that allows you to take control of characters from their popular shows. Well, popular shows and Marco Polo, which was recently cancelled. A bit odd, that.

The game is an extremely simple infinite runner that will have you dodging Demogorons, DEA agents and lunch trays. It’s pretty stupid honestly, but if you’re looking to waste a few minutes of your day, have at it here.

Okay, so you may not be able to make a custom D&D table like this, or a badass game room like this, but a glorious DM screen like the one pictured here might be little more approachable as a DIY project. It was built by Dave Henning as a gift for a very lucky friend.

It was made almost entirely from foam board and includes dice storage shelves with lighting, a place to hang reference material, a dice tower and additional storage for writing implements and NPC miniatures. Check out some additional angles below. [click to continue…]

With Adventure Time winding down, Frederator Studios is gearing up for a new project that will undoubtedly excite fans of classic gaming.

During and appearance on the Nickelodeon Animation podcast, Fred Seibert of Frederator noted that his team is working on an “unnamed” project “based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years.” “[W]e’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started,” he said. “But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going.”

While he doesn’t mention Castlevania specifically, there is evidence to suggest that this is the project in question. [click to continue…]

It’s always a good day when we get a new giant Pikachu video. Whether it’s herds of Pikachu in NYC, a Pikachu dance video, or an army of Pikachus in Yokohama, Japan, we’re all for it.

The most recent entry is this Pikachu at the Pokémon Center in Japan who heard the words denko sekka (quick attack) and busted an adorable move. It’s actually more of an agility move, but we really can’t nitpick something this cute. Watch the video below. [click to continue…]
