What if you found a way to play a video game, like Super Mario World, in a particular manner that allows you to jump your character all the way to the end–and you don’t even have to battle the final boss? Sounds impossible without an emulator, but YouTuber Minecraft SethBling appears to have figured it out. He was able to record himself pulling the move while playing SMW on an old school Super Nintendo console.

The gist here is that SethBling was able to pull a certain set of moves that basically rewrite the game’s code while he’s playing in real time. In other words, SethBling knew exactly what he needed to do in order to find this glitch and take advantage of it–all while playing at a blistering speed.

Playing Dungeons & Dragons is a wondrous adventure, one where you and your friends often say the most ridiculous things that totally make sense at the time. Take those words out of context, and suddenly it’s an entirely different story. Out of Context D&D Quotes is where gamers can submit some of the funnier lines friends have said in game. BritishGuyWhatsHisName added some artwork, and now you have your laughing place for the day.

Minecraft fans are going to want to build outside the game when they get a look at this incredible castle. It’s two feet tall and three feet wide and is constructed of over 20,000 bricks. The whole thing was built by ZaziNombies who managed to keep the very square look of the game while adding in lots of details. There are also several versions of minifig Steve and a fully accessorized interior.

And then there’s the cat.

It’s been 10 years since World of Warcraft debuted, and Blizzard is marking the occasion by sending out a special statue to those who have been with the game since its start. Gamespot reports that these dedicated players have already received emails from Blizzard notifying them that the statue is on its way. The statue has an Orc on a wolf mount and reads:

The Orc statue is a constant presence in our life at Blizzard entertainment. It’s where we meet to talk, to eat, to celebrate. As we celebrate ten years of World of Warcraft, we present this token of appreciation to you, stalwart adventurer. Thank you for being a constant presence in our lives as we adventure together.

No word on just how many people have been playing the full ten years, but for that kind of dedication to a game, they definitely deserve the recognition.

Sometimes it’s nice to carefully craft your character for Dungeons & Dragons, but you don’t have to do all that work. Instead, you can head over to Who The F*ck is my DnD Character and it will automatically generate a hilariously random bio.

Ryan J. Grant created the site and says that there are 409,415,040 characters. Be warned, there some very colorful NSFW language used in the descriptions generated, which makes it even funnier.

It might just seem like a fun sport, but when the zombie apocalypse happens, parkour could save your life. This video was made to promote the upcoming game Dying Light and follows our zombie survivalist as he leaps across the rooftops of Cambridge, UK to avoid being eaten alive. If anyone is going to make it out, it’ll be this guy. Maybe.
