    Supergirl is Coming to Lego Dimensions, But She’ll Be an Exclusive

    Good news bad news time. The good news is that our favorite second season-getting superheroine is making her way to Lego Dimensions, joining what seems like characters from every other pop culture franchise. The bad news is that minifig Supergirl will be a little tricky and/or cost-ineffective to obtain — she’s an exclusive to the PlayStation […]

    The Super Nintendo Came to North America This Week 25 Years Ago

    August 23, 1991 was quite a day.

    Watch This Hamster Play Super Mario Bros. And Win

    When I saw the link to this video at first, I was really hoping for some contraption enabling a hamster running in a wheel to progress in Super Mario Bros. That kind of pro-animal egalitarian technology still eludes us, but this isn’t bad as consolation. Someone built an abbreviated version of World 1-1 of the […]

    Aussies Have Created An Awesome Xbox Onesie

    Don’t let those greedy babies tell you otherwise, onesies are for all ages. Xbox Australia knows this truth, and has done us all a solid with the Xbox Onesie (get it?). It’s comfy, it looks like a spacesuit, and it’s probably real. Probably. It sounds like it’ll be sold, but you never know with these […]

    Watch as Pokémon Go Disrupts Traffic in Taipei

    When Pokémon Go finally made its way to Asia late last month, most attention was turned to Japan and the McDonald’s deal the developers struck.

    Fan-Made Pokémon Game Gets Shut Down by Nintendo

    After nine years of development by just two people, Pokémon Uranium came out last week — and disappeared almost as fast. Of course, Pokémon Uranium wasn’t made by official Pokémon developers Game Freak, nor did Nintendo have any hand in it. It was a fan-made game, although one as fully fleshed out as a main Pokémon title. These fan-made games […]

    Lenovo Launches Two New Gaming PCs at Gamescom

    Someone Transformed An Xbox One S Into A Laptop

    Microsoft made the Xbox One S lighter and more powerful, with a more economical (and pretty!) interior design that allowed them to fit the power supply inside the case. But, it was still a big home console — not portable, right? Well, it wasn’t until modder Ed Zarick got his hands on it. Zarick has made […]
