You don't need to have played GTA Online to enjoy this animation by Jameserton, but it'll hit much closer to home if you have done so. It's funny, and I say that as someone who goes into these game parodies with a sometimes unreasonable amount of skepticism. That dramatic music during the bomb sequence? The best.
Here's a game I can get behind. Vertiginous Golf is, "a first-person exploratory mini-golf" title, set in a dystopian steampunk world. I'm sure that world is interesting, but it's the mini-golf I'm excited about. Those holes look like...Show More Summary
God of War developer Sony Santa Monica was hit with layoffs recently.

I've never been a huge fan of South Park. I mean, I appreciate it's biting satire but there's just something about the show that convinced every suburban teenager to try a Cartman impression that just doesn't sit right with me. Oh, it's probably all of the terrible Cartman impressions I had to endure in my youth. Show More Summary

Love the smiley faces on the soldier's helmets. Show More Summary
What a week. Seriously. You ever have one of those weeks where each passing day has you saying "It can't possibly get any worse than this"? I've had one of those weeks, and I'm glad that it's almost over. Just when I thought my luck was turning around, BAM, wake up to a flat tire. Show More Summary

Should I have waited until the game comes out for consoles on Tuesday to watch this, part one of the Dark Souls II prologue? Probably. But what's done is done.
