  1. Ubisoft Announces Assassin’s Creed DLC Starring a Woman From 16th Century China

    Apparently women are easier to animate if you only use two and a half dimensions.

    It's no secret that AAA games have a problem with both gender and racial diversity, and that Ubisoft in particular has gotten a lot of heat for saying some dumb things about their inability to address these concerns in their Assassin's Creed series. But it's okay, guys! Now they've announced a new game featuring a woman of color! Sure, it's a sidescroller that you can only play if you buy it as DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity, but—wait, no, that's still frustrating.

  2. Ever Wanted to Watch NFL Players Dancing to Evanescence and Iron Maiden? Now You Can

    Whoooo's ready for some goth rock???

    No doubt you've probably seen many of the often surreal GIFs that come out of the Madden Giferator, a marketing campaign by EA for the latest Madden 15 that allows you to add your own text to looping images of the game's players. Now intrepid internet users are stating to make music videos out of the GIFs, and the songs they've picked so far are nothing short of genius.

  3. This Parkour Tribute To Classic Video Games Gets A Perfect Score

    I feel tired just watching this.

    You will undoubtedly think that this video looks fake. It has to be fake, your brain tells you. Yes, parkour expert Jason Paul is running and jumping and flipping like a boss, but something about it looks off. Trust me here -- the reveal is fantastic. Enjoy.

  8. 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!

    Stay classy, TGS.

    Yes, this is a real tweet from the floor of the Tokyo Game Show, where playing a demo of the newest OneeChanbara game requires that you stick your head inside a giant anime breast. The world really could have done without a literal interpretation of the term "booth babe," you guys.
