OK, it can be hard enough to have the coordination to play one game well. But two, simultaneously, with just one gamepad? At this year's Games Done Quick, Zach "zallard1" Allard not only clocked Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, but Super Punch-Out in under 24 minutes in these exact circumstances.

Video: In 1967, Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt vanished while swimming at a beach near his residence. He was presumed drowned, but his body was never recovered -- giving rise to a Cold War-era mystery that continues to fascinate. Scott Mannion's new short, The Defector, advances one rather tantalising theory.

For Mackay, who plays as Marth, it should have been a huge moment. But in response to her nomination, Melee players immediately raised questions about her legitimacy as a competitor.
A group of GTA Online players are all gathered together near an auto shop in downtown Los Santos. They're here for a car meet meant to show off fancy vehicles within the community.

Wars, one of Nintendo's finest series -- and one they seem intent on leaving to die in the cold like a dog -- blew up in the West on the Game Boy Advance, but in Japan it's a lot older.
If you want the best 3D graphics has to offer, then raytracing is where it's at. By simulating the path each photon takes from a light source to a surface, you can theoretically render lifelike, if motionless, scenes. Offline, you have all the time in the world, but in real-time... you have about 16 milliseconds. We're not at the point where real-time raytracing is practical for games, but we're inching closer, as this experiment with Quake 2 shows.
