One Of The Best Counter-Strike Teams Practices In A Spooky Mansion

Ninjas in Pyjamas—aka NiP— came so close to pulling off a massive upset and winning last year's Dream Hack Winter finals that it hurt. But the stinging taste of defeat eventually fades, and I imagine having a rad (though weirdly spooky) mansion to train out of doesn't hurt. Read more...

?How the First Video Game Cartridges Came Into Existence

They're pretty much a distant memory now—except for tinier descendants like 3DS and Vita games—but it used to be that cartridges were the only way to get video games playing onto a TV. The exact origins of the cartridge have been tough to trace, but a new Fast Company article run down the beginnings of this key piece of gaming technology. Read more...
