More Holiday Gametastic from CoinOpTV: The Hottest Games of the Month

The holiday season is a time for togetherness. For sharing and giving, and for seeing those assholes in the family who only appear once a year (and remembering why that’s the case). As such, it’s a good time for some communal gaming. Or for getting your game on all on your lonesome, while... Read More

Gaming’s Whacked Out Week: When Creepy AI Gets its Game On by Itself

Damn it, humanity. Did you learn nothing from Terminator? A little AI is a dangerous thing. It all starts innocently enough, with a fancy-ass new sentient weed whacker or something. Then, before we know what the hell’s going on, there’s angry robo-dudes travelling through time to kill our... Read More

The Weekly WTF: A Whole Lot of Creeptastic With Majora’s Mask and BEN

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask has long been the black sheep of the Zelda family. With its dark tone, general weirdery and that whole the-mothereffin’-moon-is-going-to-crash-into-our-faces thing it had going on, this was new territory right here.

Damn You, eBay: 20th Anniversary PS4s Look Sexy, But Not $10,000 Sexy

Obi-Wan, owner of the finest beard in the galaxy, knew his shit. A ‘wretched hive of scum and villainy,’ he called it. But not Mos Eisley Spaceport. Hell no. The old dude had just been scowering eBay for tickets to Tatooine’s Tit-tastic Topless Tango Night. Somebody had bought all four hundred... Read More

Well, of course it did. Everyone’s crossing the effing road right here, and you know what peer pressure’s like.

Have a Limb-Loppin' Good Time with ‘Severed’

Video games love doing the whole ‘bro-tacular power trip’ thing. Back in the days of Doom, studly dudes were descending into hell’s asshole armed only with a pistol and a manly scowl. This is a common theme among shooters, with Gears of War and Call of Duty and their ilk thrusting the stereotype... Read More
