    In news that shouldn't surprise anyone, firing a gun while wearing Google Glass makes you look like the protagonist of a first-person shooter video game. At least from the camera's perspective. From an outside perspective it makes you look like a dorky cyborg carrying a gun. ... / Continue →

    Note: No screencap can do the trailer justice, just watch it. Borderlands -- hands down one of my favorite first-person shooters. I've been a little skeptical about the sequel still having the same apocalyptic old-western feel to it and not turning into an all-out militaristi... / Continue →

    This is a video from Freddie Wong (the same man behind the fake watermelon shot off the head video) showing what a real first person shooter would look like. Granted it probably could have used some more teabagging, but I'm not complaining. Yes, yes I am. It could have used ... / Continue →

    That's billion with a B, not M. That would make it a million, which is far less impressive, but still more than I could ever make in a lifetime. *doing the math* Three lifetimes. That performance built on the previous benchmark of $650 million of sales in the game's first fi... / Continue →

    Apparently there's a "game ruining" glitch in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops. I don't want to ruin it for you, so you're just gonna have to watch the video and see for yourself. Or not. You're not really gonna miss anything if you don't. It's just a joke anyways. Except i... / Continue →

    This is a fake commercial for Halo Reach using the XBox's Kinect motion controls. And speaking of XBox's motion controls: I got the chance to demo the technology and it wouldn't stop mistaking my wiener for a leg. True story. Half-true story. Okay, you got me: what's Kinect... / Continue →

    Some guy (Michael Johnston -- not the track star) went and remade Zelda II: The Adventures of Link as a 3-D first person shooter THAT YOU CAN PLAY ONLINE. Boy I bet our bosses are happy today! This game was incredibly fun to make. I am a fan of the original NES game and love ... / Continue →

    A French gamer spent 7-months hunting down another Counter-Strike player so he could stab him in real life after the guy killed him during an in-game knife fight. Geez, somebody's high school guidance counselor didn't do their job! Julien Barreaux, 20, told police he wanted t... / Continue →

    Kotaku (a video game blog) recently polled its readers and came up with this informational graphic summarizing over 20,000 gamers' tendencies. Although I question how valid it is since there's no mention of teabagging and name-calling or how often I have to mute all the 12-and... / Continue →

    This is a well made Half-Life 2/Contra mashup where Gordon Freeman plays through the first level of Contra in 3-D. I always wondered what that level would look like in 3-D, and now, thanks to the marvel of computers and shit, I can finally sleep at night sans Blankey. I'm a b... / Continue →

    Is there any better way to celebrate Veterans Day than playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? Yes, but that doesn't mean there isn't a blow-up doll in a bathtub in the game. And, as a guy who's no stranger to trying to shower around a blow-up doll, let me tell you: I acciden... / Continue →

    This is a seven minute video of a guy screwing around in Half Life 2 after he replaces all the audio for the sound effects with his own voice versions. It's pretty awesome and I highly recommend checking it out, even if you just skip around for a few seconds. Which, haha, God... / Continue →

    This is a video showing how, with a piece of sheetrock, a handful of accelerometers and a digital projector, you can play Half-Life by firing at the projected screen with a real gun. The first two minutes of the video explains how the system works, so if you don't care you can... / Continue →

    This is a video about a guy living with first-person shooter disease (or Duke Nukem's disease). Honestly, I thought it was pretty sad until I realized it was a joke. What can I say, I'm slow. Like a turtle. One who just made love to a shoe. I swear, I thought it was my rap... / Continue →

    In news that should surprise no one, apparently Duke Nukem Forever, the much anticipated follow up title in development since 1997(!!!), is being scrapped. I guess that's what happens when you take 12 years to develop a game. Game On just received a somewhat cryptic form-em... / Continue →

    Goes to Sega's The House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii, with over 189 f-bombs dropped throughout the game. This knowledge comes to us from the ever diligent Guiness World Book of Records, who have apparently started recording the number of bad words in video games in addit... / Continue →
