Fan Makes Doom Playable on a Pregnancy Test

Since its release back in 1993, Doom has appeared on a plethora of platforms, but one fan has taken things a bit farther by making the game playable on a pregnancy test. Twitter user Foone Turing has shared a video of their accomplishment, which can be seen in the Tweet below. Viewers will have to squint to see what’s happening on the tiny screen, and the pixel display makes it hard to make out much, but it’s a pretty impressive accomplishment, nonetheless! Turing is a collector of computer and electronic equipment and seems to have a strong passion for finding unique uses for it. It seems safe to say this qualifies! read more

Sid Meier says Civilization’s nuclear Gandhi bug isn’t real

When Gandhi drops a nuke on you, you want to know the reason why. Civilization’s take on the leader has always had a reputation for investing in nukes and making war, not love, and players eventually tracked that meme down to a bug in the original entry in the series of strategy games. We thought the issue had been put to rest, but Sid Meier himself says that no such bug ever existed. read more


Let’s Remember The Great Cars Of The Venture Brothers

The Venture Brothers isn’t just one of my favorite animated shows, it’s one of my very favorite TV shows period. Adult Swim ended one of the longest-running shows in its line up this week after 81 episodes over 17 years. If you’ve never seen it (There’s no excuse, it’s been around for 17 years. Seriously, get your life together) the show explores the equal parts wacky and depressing adult life of the thoroughly unimpressive Dr. Thaddus ‘Rusty’ Venture, former-boy adventurer à la Johnny Quest. He and his two current boy adventurer sons, Hank and Dean, navigate a reality full of insecure super scientists, dysfunctional villains with punny names and supernatural neighbors. read more


Colin Kaepernick returns to Madden 21 as a stellar free agent

Listen. I might now absolutely jack about US-style football, but even I’ve heard of Colin Kaepernick. Unfortunately (if unsurprisingly), he’s been absent from EA’s hand-egg franchise for years – but today, EA finally changed that by adding the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback to Madden 21 as a free agent in a free update. As an extra wee bonus, they’re making this year’s sports ’em up free to try this weekend. read more


Craftopia is Minecraft meets Zelda: Breath of the Wild with tanks, and it’s a hit on Steam

Craftopia is the title that’s finally brave enough to ask “what if every game?” Scroll down and hit play on that trailer below – you’re going to see influences from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Minecraft, Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon, Monster Hunter, a little Factorio, and even a dash of Pokémon but with real animals. And that’s before the tanks and hoverboards even show up. read more

A new Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath teaser from creative director Ed Boon has Mortal Kombat fans on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia excited. It’s been a few months since we’ve heard anything salient about MK11 from NetherRealm Studios and WB Games, but it looks like this mini drought is coming to an end.
