  1. New Study Shows Playing Video Games Actually Makes You a Better Learner

    DUH we learned that a billion years ago.

    And no, we don't mean learning how to drive aggressively by playing Mario Kart.

  2. Assassin’s Creed Unity Really Can’t Animate Women or Anything Else Actually

    Glitch city and they're the mayor!

    Remember when Ubisoft was all, "We can't include women in Assassin's Creed Unity because they're too hard to animate?" Tons of nightmare-inducing glitches from the new game prove that women are, in fact, much to difficult for the game studio to render—like the above image, from Reddit.

  3. Mario Can’t Withstand Luigi’s Sick Dance Moves in Weird Live Action Mario Kart Commercials

    Do the Luigi! Swing your arms from side to side, now pop and lock.

    It's weird to see a real car company like Mercedes-Benz get put into Mario Kart with DLC, but it's even weirder to see Mario characters get put into real Mercedes—mostly because of Luigi's apparent double life as a member of NSYNC. Meanwhile, it looks like Mario's been studying the death stare.

  4. Today’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity Reviews Shouldn’t Make Us Feel Such Schadenfreude, But They Do

    Sacre bleu!

    As much as the public loves a snark-filled takedown, not a single reviewer truly enjoys wasting their time watching movies, playing games, or reading books that are not good. But. But.

  5. BioWare Designs Custom Mass Effect Level To Help Woman Propose To Her Partner

    I haven't gotten this emotional since I finished the third game.

    You may have noticed that the world hasn't been entirely awesome for women who game as of late. So here, have a story that will make your GamerGate-weary heart grow three sizes this day.

  6. We Finally Have Official Details about The Game of Thrones Telltale Game

    Sansa Stark will remember you said that.

    While we still don't know the premiere date for the first episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones game, the studio just confirmed a lot of suspicions we had about what the game is going to be like, from multiple playable characters to a decidedly Northern setting. But will there be questionable and difficult moral choices? It's not a Telltale game without those.

  7. A 10-Year-Old Tearing It Up at a Smash Bros. Wii U Event Is Excellent Marketing

    No matter what the Internet says about it.

    We're infinitely bummed out that this video of 10-year-old Karissa wrecking at Smash Bros. is just footage of a marketing stunt, but that doesn't mean it's not great. Without contrary evidence, I probably would've believed it after she almost won the first match, although mostly because Sheik is such a hot pile of bullcrap in this game that it wouldn't surprise me to see an infant win with her.

  8. Blizzard CEO Opens BlizzCon 2014 By Condemning Gamergaters Like A BAMF

    Blizzcon 2014 kicked off today, and CEO Michael Morhaime had some great things to say during the opening ceremonies. Though he never specifically mentions Gamergate by name, anyone with a modicum of common sense knows of whom he is speaking.

  9. New Trailers for Overwatch Are Surprisingly, Refreshingly Diverse

    And the world hasn't ended yet!

    Sure, Overwatch sort of looks like Destiny meets Team Fortress meets League of Legends, but damn it if the characters they've introduced here haven't won me over. Here is a summary of my thought process: "Oh, future Egypt, that's neat. Cool, they started with a female character. Wait, there's another one now and... I think she's Indian? WAIT, now there's third one with an Arabic name? THREE LADIES IN A ROW??? WHAT IS HAPPEN."
