Longtime readers may remember the case of Not Entirely Sure, who beat Super Mario Bros. with a final score of 600, due in part to the squashing of a necessary Goomba. It has taken three years, but he finally beat that record with the minimum possible score of 500. Here's how (full walkthrough below):
Well, I did it. This is THE lowest possible score you can finish the game with (without continuing). And surprisingly, it didn't take very long at all. Sadly, it's not deathless, as I miss my first attempt at the 8-1 wall jump. Getting 500 points without dying would have been nice, but that jump is so brutally precise I'd rather not restart every time I missed it (though I would have to restart anyway if I accidentally picked up a coin).More >>
I think Doom may have been the first game that I really played addictively, as in I couldn't wait to get to the next level, then the next, then the next, then suddenly it was morning outside and all the soda in my house was gone. Part of the appeal, though, was the simplicity of the controls - when Doom 64 made the analog stick part of the deal, it wasn't as much fun any more.
Nowadays, first-person shooters are so common and have gone through so many new gimmicks that you have to wonder what a new Doom could possibly offer - at this point, it's like telling high-school me that Pac-Man 4 is coming out. Nevertheless, the first access to the beta will come when you preorder the new Wolfenstein game, which is like telling high-school me that you need to buy Space Invaders 4 in order to get a look at that aforementioned Pac-Man sequel.
Hey, I wish 'em the best - it's like learning that that first ex-girlfriend, after some hard times, is reviving her career again.
While it seemed like the series was DOA with the clunky, narratively disjointed, and just plain dull Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft was able to course-correct with the time-tested "just add pirates" formula. And now, only a couple of months after the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, publisher Ubisoft has begun asking fans what they'd like to see in future installments of the now seven-year-old franchise.
But what will it take to keep the series alive in the current gen? Well, besides maybe laying off with the ancient aliens nonsense (or Desmond), we came up with nine suggestions to reinvigorate Assassin's Creed as the series heads into its next entry (and beyond).More >>
I kinda thought we'd gotten way past girl gamer stereotypes, but whatever - Nintendo's new female-skewing channel seems to be aimed at younger kids, and that's fine. Machinima and places like that have plenty of game-based channels that favor raunchier, male-skewed humor.
And then they throw in the image above, almost randomly. Giving the benefit of the doubt, I suppose they meant to imply an innocent game of hide and seek. But considering Mario is an adult male human, and he appears to be hiding in a girl's bedroom, I really, really would have urged them to go with a cute critter like Kirby instead.

-TOPLESS ROBOT MERCHANDISE is coming! Just bumper stickers for now. All sold at cost.
-Kickstarter for "Period Panties" that feature slogans like "Cunt Dracula" and "Bleeder of the Pack. Also a possibly actionable Grumpy Cat flipping you off.
-The Equestria Girls sequel is coming this year.
-A Catwoman-themed fashion show that somehow manages to be totally unsexy.
-K*Nex does Lego ripoff with Family Guy minifigs. You tink daaat's bad? Why yes, yes I do.

I guess it might be nearly ready for release after all. Sweeeet.
This video is basically the tutorial part of the game, orienting casual players to turn-based RPG combat. Your character is named Douchebag, and can choose to be a thief, mage, fighter or Jew - Jews can wield shepherd's crooks and the Sling of David.
The idea of having it be a full-on fantasy RPG about foul-mouthed kids LARPing is pretty funny - I'm guessing that the stakes get upped dramatically later on, though, and that even non-RPG gamers might want to at least watch someone else playing the game just to watch the story unfold.More >>
