Expect anything but math in zany PC sequel Frog Fractions 2

Among our Best of the Rest picks for 2012 was a small, free Flash-based game called Frog Fractions. Now, the game's sequel is seeking $60,000 on Kickstarter to bring more unexpected fun to players. Developed by Jim Crawford (under the guise of the developer name Twinbeard), the first Frog...

The weirdest booth attractions of Gamescom 2010

While most booths at Gamescom relied on the games themselves to attract visitor attention, there were plenty of booths that went to some ridiculous lengths to stand out from the crowd. Take the above picture, which was set up to promote some sort of tractor simulation that's apparently popular in...

Table-flipping becomes subject of Japanese arcade game

We all occasionally get the urge to make a showy fuss by sending a table -- and all the items said table is supporting -- sailing through the air. Whether you've just landed on a hotel-equipped Park Place in Monopoly, or if you've recently realized the downward spiral your half-finished life has...

Born for Wii: Cubivore

Some games are a little out there. You've got your No More Heroes brand of weirdness, where collecting coconuts is as commonplace as mass murder and sexual innuendo.

How not to advertise the PS3

Fresh off the release of a couple extremely awesome commercials featuring the 40GB PS3 and a slew of other great features that make us love our PlayStation 3, we were starting to regain some of our lost confidence in the Sony hype machine. However, all that may have grinded to a halt with this...

DS Daily: The good, the bad, and the strange

Even after Puzzle Quest, we never thought we'd see the day when a game would combine jewel stacking with survival horror. We're so glad it's actually happening, but we didn't expect it. The concept is odd, to say the least. The DS has a lot of niche titles like this, but some of them are weirder...

As part of their marketing for Monster Hunter Freedom 2 Capcom has decided to sponsor a real life Monster Hunt. The exhibition will travel to Guyana in order to seek out didi - South America's version of Bigfoot - and giant anacondas. We're not sure how financing a wild goose chase will help sell a...
