Stolen Pixels

A screencap comic that poked fun at videogames and the industry. The comic has ended, but there's plenty of archives for you to binge on.


Trusting the System

How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?


If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?

Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?


The Death of Half-Life

Valve still hasn't admitted it, but the Half-Life franchise is dead. So what made these games so popular anyway?


Why I Hated Resident Evil 4

Ever wonder how seemingly sane people can hate popular games? It can happen!


The No Politics Rule

Here are 6 reasons why I forbid political discussions on this site. #4 will amaze you. Or not.

Finally, the age-old debate has been settled.


Secret of Good Secrets

Sometimes in-game secrets are fun and sometimes they're lame. Here's why.


Video Compression Gone Wrong

How does image compression work, and why does it create those ugly spots all over some videos and not others?

A game about the ghost of an underwater football player who travels through time to save the world from a tick that controls kaiju satan. Really.
