Article 5 Super Bowl Movie Trailers You Might Wanna See

By Andrew Bridgman / February 2, 2014

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Major takeaways:

  • "Metal arm?" Clearly a Jax/Mortal Kombat 3 rip-off.
  • That's Captain America comic scribe Ed Brubaker as the guy hangin' with a shirtless Winter Soldier
  • Characters on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. should feel VERY nervous about their employment prospects.

Article 3 Surefire Tips To Having a Successful Videogame Kickstarter

By Andrew Bridgman / July 31, 2013

Cannot stress this enough: being developer Tim Schafer is the most important thing you can do to ensure the success of your videogame Kickstarter. Being Tim Schafer gives your project the air of quality that simply isn't there for projects run by non-Tim Schafers.

People who have been Tim Schafer have a 100% success rate (see: Double Fine Adventure, Massive Chalice), and have had all their projects funded well beyond the initial goal. Those who pledged seemed to have an implicit trust in projects run by people with the name, physical body, and history of Tim Schafer.

Article Welcome to 'Welcome to Night Vale'

By Chloe Cole / January 15, 2014

Welcome to Night Vale was the most downloaded podcast on iTunes in July 2013 after its first year. What's Night Vale, you say? Is it a fixed location in space? A cult? A special tool used to scrub ectoplasm off your bathroom floor?

  Welcome to Welcome to Night Vale

Imagine if Goosebumps, The Twilight Zone and The X-Files all took place in one small fictional town in the middle of the desert. That's Night Vale. The podcast follows the local radio station's reports.

Pwn Up: Downtown HotBlooded Pwnio One time while playing Skyrim, I had no important quests to do, so I used the console commands to make my wife Ysolda a follower and took her out on a date night.  We went down to the Winking Skeever for dinner, where we talked about (what else) khajit and sleeping tree sap, how her store was doing, and how our daughter liked living in Solitude.  We danced to some of Lisette's songs and drank the night away.  Then we took a long midnight walk down by the water, and finally headed home for some Lover's Comfort.  Since then, every time I find a scenic spot during a quest, I remember to bring Ysolda there for a date afterwards, where we'll go for a quiet walk or just take in the scenery.

I just bought a house with my wife and a few days later GTA V came out, I was so excited I went and picked it up on my way to work at 3AM. Once I got home to play it I couldn't put it down. My wife had planned a day for us to go move our remaining items at our old house and she left early so I could clean up our yard. Once I was done rather than leaving to go help at the old house (like I had planned and was told to do) I played GTA V.... for 3.5 hours. My wife wont talk to me right now.

I was at my girlfriend's parent's house for Thanksgiving, and I was set up to room with her younger brother. Late one night, I was up late playing The Force Unleashed, when I realize he's talking on the phone. He's been calling up people all night but it's pretty obvious this is a girl he's into. Out of politeness I pretend not to notice and keep playing. As he begins to engage in some kind of phone sex, I try turning up the volume but I don't want to wake up everyone with the sounds of explosions. As I get tired and sore from furiously ragdolling thousands of stormtroopers, I don't dare stop because then I'd have to face the reality of what's taking place under the blanket behind me. As the night drew on I realized how short the game actually was. I eventually overheard him saying into the phone that "there's so much of it" and when the game finally ended and I replayed the ending to get the alternate cutscene, I got the hell out of there to let him clean up.

Weirdest Thanksgiving ever.

Pwn Up: Pwn Up Or Shut Up
I have a friend that I play co-op with in Borderlands 2; we have fun usually, but he finds it funny if he can somehow kill me in the game while I do my best to actually complete missions. I did find a way to get even with him however. We were in one section called The Dust, running around a junkyard, when I say, "Oh, I found something neat here the other day. Hop in the car crusher." He responds with, "No, you'll just pull the lever and kill me." "Come on, just hop in there – there's something in there you really want." (he's an obsessive vault symbol hunter, trophy collector, etc.) He answers, "Well why don't you jump in there and show me what it is?" I sigh and say, "Fine, ya big baby," and hop in. He, of course, immediately pulls the lever that activates the crusher, killing me instantly. I respawn laughing and say, "Thanks! You just got me a trophy!" For those of you who haven't played BL2, there's a trophy for getting killed by a friend in the car crusher. You can't get it by crushing yourself, either, and I refused to crush him, saying, "You didn't believe me the first time, so why should I?" The best part? I got my revenge by doing nothing other than relying on what he normally does to me.

One day during summer, I decided to move my PS3 down to my living room to play on a big 52' flat screen TV. While playing Infamous 2 on the Villain track, an explosion happened rumbling my controller. At the exact same time of the in-game explosion, a earthquake happened rumbling my entire house. I thought the game had amazing realistic graphics.

I'm a huge Skyrim fan (a little late to the bandwagon) and recently, disaster struck. I was playing on my secondary account but then when I went to save after about an hour, I accidentally saved over my primary account. What made me mad wasn't losing all my Daedric artifacts, losing my wife and two kids, losing my dragon priest masks or losing my vampire lord perks – it was losing my favorite companion, J'zargo.

Goodnight, sweet Khajit prince – you are in a better place now.
