  1. The Facebook “Gamer” Report Button Is Real, But It’s Not What You Think

    Unless you think it's about fake Farmville accounts. Then you nailed it.

    Well, technically it's real, but it's not some kind of dystopian crackdown on people who play video games participating in society. Images floating around of an option to report accounts for being "gamers" haven't been doctored, but don't take them out of context.

  3. Anita Sarkeesian Is Animated On The Cover Of Bloomberg As A “Video Game Avenger”

    Blastin' through tropes like the Kool-Aid Man.

  5. Game Over, Man. Scientific Paper Concludes Mario Galaxy‘s Planets Would Actually Explode

    Next they'll say it's impossible to change trajectories mid-jump or something.

    Mario's been peddling lies according to a scientific paper called "It's a-me, Density!"—no, I'm not kidding. The paper alleges that the small planets in Super Mario Galaxy would destroy themselves if they had as much gravity as they do in the game. Still no word on whether touching a star makes you invincible.

  6. There Was An Awesome Peach & Mario Dance To The Classic Theme On Dancing With The Stars Last Night

    Do the Mario!

    Last night was the first part of the Dancing with the Stars season finale, and Sadie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) and Mark Ballas made the most of their free style with this adorable homage to Mario. Peach, Mario, Luigi, and Toad all show up to groove to the game's classic themes. It's actually kind of the best.

  7. Watch People Hilariously Misidentify the Cast of Smash Bros., Wii U’s New Fastest-Selling Game Ever

    You know what? No one correct the Rosalina one. That's probably helping.

    Serious Nintendophiles and Smash fans—as if those two are ever separate things—prepare to facepalm as a bunch of people still call some of the most popular video game characters of all time by the wrong names! It's OK, though; Smash Bros. for Wii U is now the Wii U's fastest-selling game in the United States!

  8. Sony Uses the Ol’ “Sexy Lady Doctor” Trope to Sell PS Vita in Mind-Numbingly Sexist Ad

    Women are too hard to animate market to.

    Quelle surprise! The company that brought us 2012's PS VITA "Touch Both Sides to Play" ad campaign featuring a four-breasted-lady has once again managed to insult both women and its teen boy target demographic in one sadly predictable swoop.

  9. Pro Star Craft 2 Player Makes Rape Comment About Female Opponent, Gets Booted From Tournament

    10/10. Would boot again.

    I don't know where people get the idea that the gaming community, despite many of its incredibly polite and welcoming members, is an uninviting place for women. Ha! Just kidding. It's things like "one of the common ways to say you're going to obliterate someone is still by using the word 'rape,' as though that's somehow acceptable behavior." As it turns out, this StarCraft 2 tournament isn't accepting that behavior.
