Fortnite's Shopping Cart Woes: A Timeline Fortnite's Shopping Cart Woes: A Timeline

Shopping carts are, at this point, Fortnite’s only vehicle. You can ride on them solo or with a friend, and they give you a slight speed boost. Simple enough, right? Wrong. Epic has now pulled them temporarily from the game three different times. Today, just when you thought they were in, Epic pulled them back out.

DeAndre Ayton is projected to be the #1 pick in this year’s NBA draft. He’s going to have all summer to get ready for the 2018-19 season, but he (or his social media person) might also take that time to put in some work on their video game marketing skills.

Coder Spends 1,200 Hours Piecing Together Diablo's Source Code Coder Spends 1,200 Hours Piecing Together Diablo's Source Code

If not for a few oversights on Blizzard’s part, the original Diablo’s source code would likely be lost to time. However, thanks to those oversights and some serious dedication from one coder, people can now see (and tinker around with) what makes Diablo tick.

Once upon a time, the makers of Minecraft worked on a card-based strategy game called Scrolls. Today, Mojang re-named it Caller’s Bane and made it free. While the new title isn’t as cool (Bethesda sued over the original) the game is still a unique mix that’s worth checking out.

Cayde-6's Death Has Destiny Players Fired Up Cayde-6's Death Has Destiny Players Fired Up

For the past week, Destiny fans have been furiously posting to message boards and making Reddit threads, venting, posting theories, and working out how best to focus their anger.

This PlayStation-Inspired Arcade Game Is Scarier Than It Looks This PlayStation-Inspired Arcade Game Is Scarier Than It Looks

OK/NORMAL is an experimental arcade game by Toni Kortelahti that embraces the visuals of early PlayStation games. The game, which captures the strange and abstract worlds of mid-90s 3D, is one of several new indie titles that embrace a new form of “retro” aesthetics. It’s an oppressive, bizarre, and overwhelming game…

We Opened Up A Brand-New NES Game From 1990

Well, this one should make collectors cringe a little bit. Believe me, it hurt to do it. We took a copy of StarTropics for the NES that’s been sealed for almost 30 years and popped it open. Then we dunked part of it in water. For history!

Fallout Fans Continue To Struggle With The Company That Hosts Their Wiki Fallout Fans Continue To Struggle With The Company That Hosts Their Wiki

Behold Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, the follow-up to 2013's Anodyne, a delightful Zelda-like. Ditching the gorgeous pixel art of the original, the sequel looks a lot grimier. Coming to PC in 2019, the game will include both 3D areas reminiscent of a PS2 game and 2D segments that look more like the first game.

How The MOBA Crash Led To One Of E3's Most Punk Looking Indie Games How The MOBA Crash Led To One Of E3's Most Punk Looking Indie Games

At first glance, the PC game Black Future ‘88 looks like too many other indie games, with its pixel art, synth music, and neon-infused cyberpunk aesthetic. But below the familiar surface is a well-defined roguelike with a surprisingly distinct identity forged in large part by the sheer force of creative will imposed…

Top Overwatch Players Fall For The Oldest Trick In The Book Top Overwatch Players Fall For The Oldest Trick In The Book

It didn’t make any sense. “What are they doing, dude?” asked Houston Outlaws tank Austin “Muma” Wilmot as the other team, made up of top-ranked players including LA Gladiators tank Chan-hyung “Fissure” Baek, repeatedly crashed against the holo-shield walls of a relatively lackadaisical defense. Then it hit him:…
