Not The Fastest Super Mario Bros. 3 Speedrun. Surely The Prettiest.

Nintendo just released their classic platformer Super Mario Bros 3 for Wii U and 3DS yesterday. The NES classic probably looks great on the company’s current hardware. Good for them. But SMB3 looks utterly amazing in this 4K resolution tool-assisted speedrun posted on YouTube.


A Little Bit Of Sonic, Some Super Meat Boy And A Lot Of Difficulty

Video game movement is the best, isn’t it? Jumping higher than possible in reality, dodging, rolling and sprinting with impossible smoothness across precise vectors… it’s no wonder you get limitations like a double jump or short dash distances. Fenix Rage takes those strictures away, giving you infinite dash and infinite jumping. It’s the kind of game where you need it.


Sonic The Hedgehog Dances His Way Into Your Nightmares

Warning: the video below contains people in Sonic character suits doing some really terrible twerking.


Coming Soon To An RPG Near You: Panic Attacks!

Life is stressful, and sometimes even the bravest people shut down under too much trauma. Darkest Dungeon takes that emotional reality and weaves it into the game, giving players a band of warriors who can get so sick and tired of fighting all the damn time that they will just quit or run away.


What It Looks Like To Play A Four-Dimensional Game

Some games ask you to shoot, jump or strategise in ways that are similar to what you’ve done. Sure, there may be unique tweaks designed to pique your interest, but you mostly go in knowing what to expect. Other games are different deep down in their DNA, challenging the way you do even the simplest things. Miegakure‘s got four dimensions instead of three so, yeah, it’s one of the deep-down-different ones.


How One Mario Kart Track Has Changed In 22 Years

If you’ve been playing Mario Kart games since the beginning, you’re probably going to have a bit of déjà vu on the Doughnut Plain track. The folks at GameXplain take a look at the Doughnut Plains level as it originally appeared in 1992′s Super Mario Kart and as it will show up in next month’s Mario Kart 8.


Super-Speed GTA V Looks Damn Cool

Los Santos looks even more realistic — and chaotic — when it’s going by very quickly. Canadian artist Benoit Paillé — the same guy who’s making extremely clever real-world trick photography using Grand Theft Auto V — delivers this fun ‘hyper timelapse’ tour of the game’s environments.


If The Arcade Game From Tron Existed, It Would Look A Lot Like This

Everyone remembers that the plot of Tron: a computer hacker/arcade owner gets pulled into the cyberscape of a cool-looking video game. Now, the actual game that Kevin Flynn journeyed into gets an impressive painted tribute.


Genius And His Lego Robot Take Cheating To A New Level

Uli Kilian once set a world record by solving 100 Rubik’s Cubes while running a marathon at the same time. So he’s smart. And fit. But the smartest thing he’s done might have been building a robot to tap his iPad screen in the middle of the night so that he wakes up to a ton of money in a mediocre free-to-play game. Just look at it. Beautiful, right?


Another Frustrating Beyond Good & Evil 2 Tease

It’s time for another heart-breaking glimpse of the long-brewing follow-up to Beyond Good & Evil. The flirtation with releasing actual information about a sequel for Ubisoft’s cult favourite action/adventure is an annual ritual, like salmon swimming upstream or leaves changing colours.
