Little things will mean a lot in MLB 15 The Show

Polygon - 6 hours ago. He is as old and heavy as a Zenith console TV, and only slightly more mobile.

The Deadpool film just won Twitter with a single follow

Polygon - 11 hours ago. I have nothing to add to this. This is perfect. Whoever is running Deadpool’s social media campaign is nailing it. If they have to follow someone on Twitter, that’s the one account Wade would pick. Keeping a detail this subtle in-character is pretty neat. If you haven’t checked out the official costume yet, do so. […]...

Pro rasslers are just as crazy playing Gang Beasts as they are in Wrestlemania

Polygon - 1 day ago. This video might have been better back in January, because Gang Beasts, by Boneloaf Games, is a little more like the Royal Rumble, not Wrestlemania, which airs tomorrow.

Visceral may be the most overused word in video games (sorry, people who made Battlefield Hardline) but I’m at a loss for a better one to describe the gross-ass squishy-guts noises of a Mortal Kombat fatality. How Netherrealm Studios gets that sound, however, is a lot more prosaic. As this video from IGN shows, it involves […]...
