Article Lovable Me: A Minion Love Story

By Andrew Bridgman / March 5, 2014

I'll never forget when we first met - at the nightly mandatory screening of Despicable Me. It was love at first sight. I wasted no time in telling you I loved you.

I got down on one knee, about the height of your average Minion, and asked you if you would be the Female Minion to my Male Minion.

Article What Would You Do For a Next Gen Console?

By Chloe Cole / November 26, 2013

What crazy stuff would the people of Twitter do for an Xbox One or a PS4? Murder, organ donation, selling loved ones, and butt stuff are just some of the things. Actually, "butt stuff" is most of the things. You'll see.

Article Console Review: The Playstation 4

By Andrew Bridgman / November 14, 2013

Well, it's finally here - the first true next gen console, the PlayStation 4:


I know what you're thinking - and yes, it is sleek as hell. Also, it isn't the PlayStation 4. The guy who sold me this on Craigslist was extremely misleading (both about this and the payment, which I was led to believe would just be $700, not $700 plus "a whole bunch of weird nude pics of me cradling a Sonic the Hedgehog plushie"), which left me in a bit of a predicament, since I had a deadline to get in this PlayStation 4 review (Sony would not send a review model because, according to their PR manager, I was persona non-grata there after I "sent them too many weird nude pics of me cradling a Sonic the Hedgehog plushie").

Article 5 Reasons Why Slippy is a Badass

By Ryan Creamer / September 18, 2013

1. Slippy Is An Engineering Mastermind

5 Reasons Why Slippy is a Badass

Slippy brings tangible skills to the table - which, it should be noted, is saying a lot for a team that is otherwise anthropomorphic, patronizing sass-machines. While Falco cops his signature 'tude, Peppy is physically unable to conjure up a single conversation topic unrelated to the poor protagonist's dead father. Slippy provides health information for every boss in Starfox 64, and invented EVERY VEHICLE YOU USE IN THE GAME.

Article Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Videogame Sequels of All-Time

By Andrew Bridgman / January 30, 2014

  Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Videogame Sequels of AllTime

 Ever wonder what the greatest videogame sequels of all-time are? Well, wonder no longer! After 900,000 votes from Dorkly readers and non-readers who just like clicking pictures a lot (see the full results here), we have the greatest number 2's in gaming history.

 

20. Star Fox 64

  Toplist Results: The 20 Greatest Videogame Sequels of AllTime

Beginning its life as Star Fox 2 for the SNES, eventually the project was scrapped and moved to the upcoming N64 system, starring a group of 4 animals that - for some reason - were the only ones interested in trying to stop a floating monkey head from destroying the galaxy (seriously, there's an entire army shown at the end that apparently all had shore leave during the game). With diverging mission paths, some great (if basic) multiplayer, and some top-notch meme lines (including my favorite: "Do a spin-type move, Commander McCloud!" - Pepper the Squirrel), StarFox 64 was one of the main reasons to get an N64 in the early days. But on top of all of this, it was the first game to utilize the Rumble Pak (it even came with one!). By simply jamming a 5 pound brick into your controller, you could truly understand how it felt to be a anthropomorphized fox piloting a starship through an asteroid belt.

Article 9 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

By Andrew Bridgman / September 26, 2013

1. Violence Killer: Turok New Generation (US Name = Turok 2: Seeds of Evil)

  10 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

What's the only thing better than killing dinosaurs? Killing VIOLENCE. Killing the concept of "causing physical harm against others." Which, if you've ever used the Cerebral Bore, you'll know that's actually not the worst description. Better than planting seeds of evil - this title is a full-grown plant of evil.

 

2. God Slayer: Sonata of the Far Away Sky (US Name = Crystalis)

  10 Game Titles That Are Way Better In Japan

Crystalis is one of those names that doesn't really mean anything - it's a vaguely fantasy-esque title, but nothing else. Whereas "GOD SLAYER" is pretty badass - someone described by their slaying of gods? Pretty cool, especially when there's a song involved about how distant the sky is.

Article 5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3

By Andrew Bridgman / December 4, 2013

5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen 3

Today, Zack Snyder announced he had finally cast the role of Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3 for his upcoming film, Batman vs. Superman - and the actress portraying her is none other than Katherine Dorselburg. Naturally, the fan community is in an uproar over whether or not Ms. Dorselburg is right for the crucial role. Frankly, we here at Dorkly think she's an awful, awful choice, and here's why.

 

1. Way Too Skinny

5 Reasons Why Katherine Dorselburg Is A Terrible Choice To Play Terrified Metropolis Citizen 3

Everyone knows Terrified Metropolis Citizen #3 is thin - but a lean, muscular thin, not the kind of bony thin that Katherine Dorselburg is and has been expected to be throughout her entire career in Hollywood up to this point and by society at large, which criticizes women for not looking dangerously underweight all the time. Plus, it's not like she can put on muscle through a training and diet regimen (the way all male actors in superhero and action films do) - since we've only seen her at one consistent body type, she definitely 100% is going to have that body type in playing her character, and it will be awful (because how she looks is obviously the most important factor in her portrayal).

Grand Theft Auto V Reviews: The Review

 

The internet has really done it this time - if you thought the reviews for Grand Theft Auto IV were good, the reviews for Grand Theft Auto V absolutely blow them out of the water, both in terms of word count and hyperbole. The reviews are massive and detailed - it's clear that videogame journalists have really put the time in to make these reviews as huge and enthusiastic as we've come to expect from videogame blogs and news outlets. Words like "perfect", "masterpiece," and "revolutionary" are only the tip of the iceberg here.
