  5. This Abridged Plot Synopsis For Destiny Is Way Better Than The Actual Story

    The Fallen and The Hive found The Awoken and are Chosen by The Traveler and oh screw it.

    If you've played more than one minute of Destiny, or been on the internet at all in the past two weeks, you may have noticed people complaining about the story. That's because Destiny's story is garbage_and it isn't helped by Peter Dinklage's, um, less-than-Emmy-worthy voice acting. This video is a short, spoiler-free synopsis of the "plot," and it would be funnier if it weren't so painfully accurate. Dinklebot! Robodinkle!

  8. Hey, Remember That One Time Someone Sent Anita Sarkeesian a Bomb Threat Saying They’d Murder a Dozen People?

    I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    Just when something good comes around and I think it's OK to have hope for the fate of the world again, I see this. Via Kotaku, some jackholes threatened to detonate a bomb at last March's Game Developers Choice Awards unless they revoked Anita Sarkeesian's Ambassador Award. BRB, flying into the sun. Tell my dogs I'll miss them.

  9. Gamers Beware, the Great World of Warcraft Name Purge Is Coming

    LLLEEEEROYYYY JENKINS

    Blizzard has announced that when the next World of Warcraft patch comes out, a whole bunch of old usernames will go the way of the dodo. Hey, as long as Everquest leaves the Half-Elf warrior I got to level three back in high school alone, I'm fine.

  10. Conservative Institute Releases Video Telling Feminists to Stop Criticizing Video Games

    Don't you know games are for boys? So it's okay that they have boy stuff—like misogyny.

    You know what the Internet doesn't have enough of? People trying to tell feminists that they're overreacting. Good thing the American Enterprise Institute's Christina Hoff Sommers was on hand to delve into the world of hardcore gaming, and come up with the conclusion that its critics must just be "hipsters with degrees in cultural studies." Which she, of course, says with a mocking tone, because what do people with degrees in cultural studies know about culture?
