  1. Kanye West is on a Kanye Quest, Will Put You to the Kanye Test in This Fan-Made Game

    Not sorry about that title.

    Love him or hate him, rapper Kanye West has become a fixture in American pop culture; you can't really ignore him even if you tried. So it's only natural that there's now a video game about him. Kanye Quest 3030, a new free fan-made PC game, is a beautiful, dark, twisted, and final fantasy befitting of its eponymous star.

  2. Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter Reappears, Still Just as Shady as Before

    This crowdfunding attempt is -- wait for it -- eternally dark.

    The Kickstarter for Precursor Games' Eternal Darkness successor, Shadow of the Eternals, has returned to the crowdfunding website after two disastrous attempts. This time they're asking for $750,000 to make the game, and they've dropped the episodic structure. They're pulling out all the tricks to make themselves look better, but the whole thing still seems shady.

    Grabbing your friends is mandatory.

    Ever wanted to play your very own BMO? Well too bad, but this new flash game on Cartoon Network's official website is the closest thing we're gonna get right now. It allows you to create your own little Adventure Time games that wouldn't be out of place next to Guardians of Sunshine and Bug Battle. Yes, you too can now make your own adventure for Finn and Jake to have. Don't worry, it's nothing like that one episode where they shipped the tiny versions of themselves.

  4. Blizzard Wants Even More of Your Money: World of Warcraft Microtransactions Confirmed

    Azeroth? More like Casheroth, am I right?

    If buying expansions and paying a monthly fee to play the World of Warcraft wasn't enough fire to burn a hole in your pocket, then Blizzard has good news for you: Items you can buy with real money are on the way. Players recently found an item purchasable with cash that would grant you a 100% EXP bonus on a public test server. When pressed on the subject, Blizzard confirmed that microtransactions are in the works.

  5. Put on Your Horse Mask: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Trailer Isn’t Messing Around [Video]

    Even though 2's the right number, but whatever

    Hotline Miami was the little game that could of last year. Despite being a low-budget, $10 indie game, it managed to steal the hearts of a good number of those that played it, and it ended up on many Game of the Year lists -- including my own. It didn't hurt that it was inspired by the movie Drive, either. Now, Dennaton Games returns with a second and final installment -- Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

  6. Valve Strikes Back: You Could Be Able to Share Your Steam Library in the Future

    They're cribbing from Microsoft here, and we're actually okay with that.

    As if Gabe Newell had to do anything more with Steam for PC game players to consider him their benevolent overlord, there might be an amazing new feature coming to the service. Some code has been located in the most recent Steam beta that mentions a "shared library." That's right, you could potentially let your friends borrow your PC games in the future.

  8. It’s Really Happening, People! System Shock 2 Coming to GOG

    A number of PC video games that came out in the late '90s to early aughts are held in high esteem by the greater video game community. Deus Ex and Fallout come to mind, for example. Most of these have been repackaged and released digitally, but System Shock 2 was left out in the digital cold. Designed by Ken Levine of BioShock fame, System Shock 2 has received heaps of praise over the years, but never a digital release. That ends tomorrow, thanks to GOG.

  9. Android Malware Moves From Phone to PC, Listens in on You With Your Own Microphone

    The cyber-security wonks at Kaspersky have raised the alarm on a piece of malware for Android phones. The real target of the virus, though, isn't the phone -- it's the computer users will plug it into. The malware, which was available until recently in the Google Play store, masquerades as simple Android phone clean up apps going by the (slightly ironic) names SuperClean and DroidCleaner. Once the apps made it onto a computer, though, they doesn't clean up so much as clean house, copying sensitive data like photos and contact information to remote servers. That's not unnerving enough for you? Don't worry -- to turn the creep factor up to 11, the malware is also capable of turning on PC microphones to listen in on users and relay along those recordings to its shadowy overlords.

  10. Dell Dude Actor Thinks Dell Dude Resurrection Could Save the Company

    PC purveyor Dell has definitely seen better days. The company's dropped to third in global PC sales, is in talks to go private, and generally isn't in the same position it was a decade ago. Their troubles are many, but there's at least one man that believes there's a simple solution that could put Dell back on top. Ben Curtis, better known as the "Dude, you're getting a Dell" guy, thinks all Dell needs to do is bring back Steven the Dell Dude and everything would work out.
