  2. Six-Year-Old Girl Tries to Identify All the Fighters in the New Smash Bros., Succeeds at Being Adorable

    I want these included as alternate announcer sound effects.

    A Tumblr user named Lorenzo did what all good older siblings do and tried to help his little sister learn about video game characters. The result? She didn't exactly come away with encyclopedic knowledge of gaming's biggest mascots, but her answers on the names of the new Smash Bros. fighters are pretty accurate in their own way.

    Somewhere, PC gamers are cackling with delight.

    Dedicated game consoles are going to die someday. We don't know when, and we don't know how, but it's pretty much an inevitability of technology at this point.

  4. The Voice of Ellie From The Last of Us Has A Few Choice Words For Ubisoft & Assassin’s Creed

    No arguments here.

  6. There’s a Guardians of the Galaxy Mobile Game by Comics Writer Dan Abnett That You Can Play Right Now

    Join the galaxy's finest bunch of a-holes.

    Dan Abnett's newly formed Guardians of the Galaxy run, with cowriter Andy Lanning, starting in 2008 was the primary basis and inspiration for the upcoming movie we can't stop talking about, so when Disney needed someone to write the tie-in mobile game, Abnett was the go-to writer.

  9. Amazing Parents Develop Ninja Pizza Girl Game Based on Their Daughters’ Real World Delivery Experiences

    Ninja pizza: pizza that vanishes quickly, without a trace.

    The idea behind Ninja Pizza Girl is simple: the developers' daughter is a kung fu-practicing pizza delivery girl in reality, and they wanted to make a game that showcased that real life experience in a fun way and also addressed real world issues we've all faced. The game looks to do just that by having you deliver pizza parkour-style and fight some pretty unconventional villains—garbage-throwing, insult-slinging peers.

    Is he mad they didn't make him more of a bad guy?
