Rappers Saving A Puppy In VR Is Very Good

YouTuber Really Shows Off Fallout 3's Wasteland

YouTuber Shesez’s show Boundary Break is always a treat, but the most recent episode on Fallout 3 is chock full of weird experiments with skyboxes, colors, and minutiae that’s beyond the regular play experience. My favorite part is the wasteland.

A Classic Christmas Song Interpreted Through  Rollercoaster Tycoon A Classic Christmas Song Interpreted Through  Rollercoaster Tycoon

It’s the holiday season, and that means it is the time to listen to holiday songs. They’re universally terrible, so making “new” versions with pop culture objects is just fine by my book. And now we have “The Twelve Days Of Christmas” with Rollercoaster Tycoon Classic parks.
