Serious Sam was released in 2001, but the game’s been hiding a secret for more than a decade. A player wasn’t able to put it together until they were hired by the game’s developer and asked the CEO for help. »
For decades, Lois Lane’s been the butt of jokes involving Superman’s double identity. A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who gets fooled by a pair of glasses? Come on, girl. This week, Lois puts it all together. And, yeah, she’s pissed.
In its most vanilla, near-ubiquitous form, Tetris is already a near perfect video game that challenges you to be smart and fast in increasingly hard fashion. The stuff that gets thrown at you in an ultra-hard arcade version is mind-blowing. Blocks that need to be cleared twice. A stack that flips around. Let’s watch… »
I took our 5-year-old daughter to see Pixar’s Inside Out a week ago. I wish we had been able to play the new King’s Quest together instead.

Alexey Pajitnov’s falling-block puzzler captures the pleasure and the vacuousness of virtual labor. Each game of Tetris contains an interactive “Ozymandias,” a fruitless quest to build something that will… »
Batman is Bruce Wayne. Except, of course, when he isn’t. Other folks have worn the pointy ears of Gotham City’s shadowy superhero over the years, too, and every new Batman brings a few changes with them as well. In the comics these days, we’ve got a cop in a robot suit as the Dark Knight. The other elements associated… »
