System Update Required: Gamers Vent Their Frustration After Trying to Play Their New Consoles

Remember those Christmas mornings where, with baited breath, you tore into the packages under the tree. Hoping that inside one of those shiny gifts lie that gaming console you'd been waiting all year for. The console you'd pestered your parents every time you went to the store, that you'd read about obsessively in every gaming magazine you could get your hands on.

Samsung vs SKT: The League of Legends World Championship Showdown

The finals of the League of Legends World Championship are here, and Samsung aims to take down the reigning world champs: SKT. Although we agree with most that SKT is the heavy favorite, we'd love to see Samsung take down the LoL Goliath.

Pokémon GO! Has Been out Less than a Month, and It's Already Inspired Dating Apps Like These

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.

It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

For the sake of full disclosure I'm still exploring the original map from Fallout 4, and now Bethesda hits us with this galvanizing bit of news..a landmass in the Far Harbor DLC is slated to be bigger than Oblivion's biggest map (even though that game came out ages ago). Let the jaws hit the floor.

The biggest catch, or qualm rather, that I hold here is the fact Far Harbor will have less 'playable content' than Shivering Isles. Ah well, if anything we'll enjoy some better developed faction quests, more challenging creatures and dastardly dungeons and higher-level armor and weapons sets.


And the big 'ol bold news for Fallout 4 don't stop there, as I'm sure you know, survival mode hit PCs today alongside a new patch. Some of the notable takeaways with the new survival mode :


-Quicksaving and "almost" all autosaves are disabled; you will instead need to find a bed and sleep for at least an hour to save the game.


-Fast travel is disabled.


-You now deal more damage, but you also take more damage. Players can also further increase their damage with the new "Adrenaline" perk, Bethesda explained. Every five kills increases your Adrenaline rank, adding 5 percent each time for up to 50 percent damage at the max rank of 10.


-Combat is now "more strategic," as you will need to make use of block/parry to stay alive.


-Threats (outside of those added by a Recon scope) will not display on your compass; additionally, the distance at which areas of interest will show up has been "significantly shorted."


-You will also need to take care of yourself, staying hydrated, fed, and rested. Don't eat, drink, or sleep for a while and your health will deteriorate.


-Fatigue will affect your Action Points, meaning the more Fatigue you have, the less Action Points you'll have available for sprinting and using V.A.T.S.

Granted, the 'final product' doesn't look like anything worth getting too worked up about, but still the concept's something a lot of Nintendo fans could get down with. 

Miitomo's a free-to-start social experience built around Nintendo's Mii avatars. Users craft and wardrobe themselves (tapping into an array of virtual items) in Mii form while mingling with friends on the 'My Nintendo' network via Q&A mode.

Users can create Miis using Miitomo's editor, which is created in such a way that pics taken with a smartphone's camera or imported via Nintendo 3DS, or Wii U through a QR code can be re-worked back on the editor.

Nintendo additionally released a statement that a new virtual store with an amassed catalog of 2,000 games (purchasable w/Nintendo account for play with 3DS or Wii U) will be opening March 31st.

Night Dive Studios was able to confirm rumors encircling the remastering for Turok:



Actually though, this gen will be remembered in history as the HD remastered generation. Either way, we could always use more games with (self-destructing) dinosaurs.

Watches video. Looks down at hands. Shakes head and disgustedly tosses controller...

No, but all kidding aside if players out there are willing to substitute pride and dignity and their GameCube controllers for wireless controllers, they'll be able to play with the Bidou technique. Granted, smash tourneys don't allow wireless controllers, but hey why not mess around with this during recess?

Bidou allows for players to near perfectly execute pivots/crouching pivots, sliding spot dodges, standing dash attacks, and sustain frame accuracy during wall jump attacks.
