Indie Game Spotlight - Sir, You Are Being Hunted
Easily one of the most intense and suspenseful games coming out of any studio in the past few years, Sir (or Madam) You Are Being Hunted has a unique art style and feel that is truly all its' own.

The story is this : something bad happens and you wake up on an island, with almost nothing on your person. Nearby is what appears to be a freshly destroyed robot, sparks still fizzling from its' corpse. You find out rather quickly that the land is dotted with these roving, top hat-wearing, pipe-smoking, gun-toting androids and they are hunting you like a game animal. Why? We don't really know.

60 Year Old Gramps Trash Talks Like a Pro In Call Of Duty
Who says seniors are out of touch with technology? This (allegedly) 60 year old man plays Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 3 religiously, and he can hang with the best of them.

Anyone who has played competitive video games sometime in the past ten years knows that trash talking is a big part of the sport. You rub it in your opponents face when you're doing well, and swear like a sailor when you're getting your butt kicked. What we might call "bad sportsmanship" in sports, is the accepted norm when it comes to video games.

It may not be politically correct, but there is something irrefutably ...

8 WTF Videogames That Must Been Seen To Be Believed

8 WTF Videogames That Must Been Seen To Be Believed
Videogames are awesome. They can transport you to other worlds, let you become someone you would otherwise never be and do things that are near superhuman. But while Mass Effect might place you in the role of the savior of our very galaxy, Seaman puts you in charge with helping a human-faced fish evolve... all with the power of your voice. Who needs to save the galaxy when you can do that!

With the thousands of videogames released every year, the law of averages state that at least some of them are going to fall into the weird, bizarre and just plain WTF category. However, while a few of...

Indie Game Spotlight - No Man's Sky
No Man's Sky shocked and awed all of gamerdom at the 2013 VGAs. Coming out of nowhere, this beautiful sci-fi exploration & survival game completely floored viewers with colorful, beautifully detailed planets, filled with exotic wildlife, sights and sounds. And we all gasped when we watched as the nameless protagonist (you) hop into their spaceship and blast off through the planet's atmosphere and into space, where a fleet of spaceships had just arrived from hyperspace.

If you haven't seen it (shame on you) we've provided it below. Do yourself a favor and give it a watch.

20 Of The Coolest Aliens From Pop Culture
We have a fundamental obsession with the idea that aliens exist. In all probability they do - but we've got no actual idea what they might look like, sound like, think like or smell like. And if there's one thing the human mind does when it's not sure about something - it's create an identity from scratch. And that's what some of our most prolific directors and writers have done with some of the most beloved science fiction series in pop culture.

The result is a near infinite library of alien species that could very well be more extravagant than anything nature can produce. This library of...
