Minecraft gets the Love and Hugs treatment this April Fool’s

Minecraft really is a terribly violent game. In it, you destroy the environment, butcher and imprison the local fauna, open portals to Hell, and squander precious natural resources on profane statues.

Housemarque has the best April Fools’ joke

April Fools’ Day has the potential to be hilarious. Unfortunately, it’s usually not because most people are lazy and stupid and equate “lying” with “funny”. This is because human beings are awful and should try to be more like us Elves. But, barring that, it’s nice when companies and people actually put a little bit more »

This week on the PlayStation Store, March 24, 2015

Okay? is the next Desert Golfing

Last year, we ended up getting this great time sink for Android and iOS devices called Desert Golfing. It was great, as you’d endlessly hit a golf ball towards a hole on a sandy golf course, relying on proper angles to reach the goal. Now, earlier this month, we’ve gotten what seems to be its more »

Warlocks preview: Character choice actually matters

The thing is, a big part of the game is trying to determine what part you focus on. Do you worriedly watch the road, hoping to see if anything more »
