Our Christmas charity stream is over but the fundraiser is still going

For nine hours on Monday, our vidbuds and assorted drop-in staffers hosted a festive fundraiser supporting The British Red Cross Society. They snuck around Hitman 2, competed in a Nidhogg tournament, built a home in The Sims 4, teed off in What The Golf, and it was already off the rails when Nate started a nature tour of Red Dead Redemption 2. The gang raised…

Feature: Get some Chrimbo right up in ya

Going Hollow: Twitch Plays Dark Souls

The story of King Canute setting his throne down on the shore and commanding the tide to turn back and not wet his flip-flops is often now referenced as arrogance, when really he was well aware that the waves would knock down his sandcastle and carry away his ball. Sometimes we attempt things to prove we can't do them. Almost definitely inspired by Canute (and,…

Microsoft About To Announce Something About PC Games

Update: Windows 10 will be free to users of Win 7, Win 8 and Win 8.1 for a year. Fable Legends coming to PC Xbox One cross-platform multiplayer. What is it? We don't know. It could be some crazy Xbox/PC crossover. It could be simply more about DirectX 12 and its straight-to-the-metal performance boost promises. It could be a new-gen GFWL (ick). It could just…
