World Cup Fever Update: A Soccer Game That Used To Be A Half-Life Mod

Around 15 years ago, there was a Half-Life mod released called International Online Soccer, which turned Valve’s classic shooter into a football game. Now, just in time for the 2018 World Cup, it’s back. Ten years since its last update, the project is now a standalone (and almost entirely re-written) entity called IOSoccer, and is available for free on Steam. […]

The Week In Games: Grab That Racket 

Mario Tennis Aces week is upon us. Like many, I want to see my favorite Mushroom Kingdom friends absolutely annihilate a world tour of tennis players. But it’s not the only great thing coming out. The time after E3 is always strange, and this year is no different. We’re getting some interesting releases like The Lost Child and Lost In […]

Today is Father’s Day, and there’s a special new God of War trailer to mark the occasion.

https://kinja.com/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-TV07cZLWIjc&start=0 Today is Father’s Day, and there’s a special new God of War trailer to mark the occasion. It’s full of soaring music that tugs at the heart strings, but it also spoils one of the more moving moments in the game.

Oswald of Carim Dark Souls is a game that’s celebrated for its oblique narrative and skillful combat, but it also has some complicated and obscure mechanics that don’t make much sense. Now someone is finally explaining them all in a useful video format. https://kinja.com/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-lNysXeQrNzo&start=1 The first two episodes of “Dark Souls Dissected” are an investigation into the more subtle mechanics […]

Gex Makes For A Weird Speedrun

This is the inside cover for the game. Multiple people saw this and thought it was awesome. While we were all screaming about E3, a speedrunner by the name of Mysticore was setting the world record for completing Gex: Enter The Gecko for the Playstation in 48:51. Golly, that game is weird. I’ve always had a fascination with Gex. Despite […]

‘Shop Contest: Even More Smash Bros.

The new Smash Bros. game has a lot of characters, but it doesn’t have every character ever created, so our ‘Shop Contest this week is all about cramming more weird stuff into this game. Look, I’ve never been a Smash fan. I think I must be missing something crucial that gets people hollerin’ about Peach grabbing a ledge, jumping, and […]

I Love This Disaster Film Made With Cities: Skylines

GIF That’s a meteor flying into three tornadoes. An intrepid filmmaker going by the name of TDB Games has created a rousing 24-minute movie called “Yoko” about the destruction of a small city. It’s very good. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of a good Cities: Skylines cinematic flythrough, but it’s rare that I see a creator attempt […]

The Creator Of Assassin’s Creed Thinks The Film’s Version Of The Animus Is Cool

GIF The 2016 Assassin’s Creed film is not good. However, it does have a really cool take on the series’s memory-reliving technology called the Animus. Even Patrice Désilets, the creative lead on the first three Assassin’s Creed games before leaving Ubisoft in 2010, liked it. https://kinja.com/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-Fwy_lqO3g6U&start=0 In an interview conducted by YouTuber Loomer, Désilets reveals that he watched the movie […]
