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...

Friday Video: Curiouser and curiouser

Selecting a video for this week's spotlight was somewhat difficult ... because we managed to stumble across some of the weirdest videos we've seen in a while.

Trippy Flash game To-Suta involves flying toasters, rainbows

You are a flying toaster. You can shoot rainbows out of your mouth. The Katamari Damacy theme song is playing in the background. This would normally be the point where you wake up in a cold sweat and discover your crayons are missing, but no, it's just To-Suta. A simple side-scrolling shooter done...

Killer, nudist bond over video games in prison

It's really hard to make up a better lead sentence than the one that appeared in Monday's Daily Scotsman: "Shotgun killer Jamie Bain and Naked Rambler Stephen Gough have struck up an unlikely friendship in Saughton Prison over games on a PlayStation." The basis for this introduction, apparently, is...

Gamers will find anything, and we mean anything inside a game. Take this video for instance. Apparently in the Rooftops multiplayer level of Gears of War, there's a dead man sitting on a toilet inside one of the nearby buildings and you can see him through the window. You can follow the links to...

Xbox 360 crazy lady, please explain

First person to explain why this has a 360 logo at the end gets a cookie. Seriously, what the hell, man? Was she auditioning for the "banned" commercial? Or perhaps this is merely improv gone horribly wrong. Whatever the hell it is, it has a disturbing allure that cannot be denied....
