Know why Eidos and AMD made such a big deal about Lara's hair in the new Tomb Raider? Because video game hair is normally pretty ugly, and something incredibly hard to get right.
I know, I know. The season ended last week. But seeing as how we were knee-deep in E3, I didn't get a chance to watch the finale until much later in the week. So, I thought I'd do our normal post-GoT off-topic a week late.
There are a good number of enjoyable easter eggs hidden in The Last of Us, but this one takes the grand prize. At one point in the game, Joel will come across a couple of phone numbers for "pest control." But they're not actually numbers for pest control hotlines… they're phone sex hotlines.
At its heart, Animal Crossing is a game that's all about personal flair, customization, and expressing yourself. And now that even franchises like Pokemon allow players to choose their skin color, some are wondering: why doesn't Animal Crossing allow you to do the same thing?
Check out this video demonstration of Tower of Guns, one of the coolest surprises at the Indiecade booth during E3.
Chloe Sagal, game developer who tried to commit suicide on Twitch following a crowdfunding scandal, recently wrote something about what actually happened to her.
It didn't take long for people to start characterizing next-gen consoles as all sorts of things—including, yes, Game of Throne characters.
You might not believe this, but Valve's multiplayer arena game Dota 2 is technically still in beta. It'll be officially out this summer, reports PC Gamer—just in time for the third International tournament in August.
Meet Cyberdwarf. Cyberdwarf is a character in the ridiculous (and wonderful) video game Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Cyberdwarf now has his very own body pillow.

After sitting through the Nintendo developer roundtable at E3, which featured Tsunekazu Ishihara and Junichi Masuda of The Pokemon Company and Game Freak respectively, it struck me: much has changed since the Pokemon: Red and Blue days. I'm not just talking about how there's a new fairy type now, either.
Does Call of Duty Dog feel threatened by Nintendogs? Weeks after the official announcement of Call of Duty: Ghosts, it's still not very clear whether or not the game is coming to Wii U.
NCAA Football 14 offers three different matchups—Alabama vs. Virginia Tech, Oregon vs. Texas A&M, and the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry—when the game's demo arrives on Xbox Live and Playstation Network tomorrow.
I'd heard that Shigeru Miyamoto was really proud of his new game, Pikmin 3. Like, really, really proud. Like, guy-who-made-Donkey-Kong-and-Super-Mario-and-Zelda-thinks-this-game-is-great proud. That good, huh?
Like millions of other people all over the world this weekend, Mike Fahey and I both saw Man of Steel. There’s a lot riding on this reboot of the Superman movie franchise, which comes during the year of the 75th anniversary of the character’s first appearance. If you’re a longtime comics reader like Mike or myself, then all those previous versions of Kal-El from the last three-fourths of a century probably flew through your head if you saw Man of Steel.

People like zombie video games? Go figure. State of Decay has sold more than 500,000 copies since its June 5 release on Xbox Live, making it the service's fastest-selling original game of all time. A Steam version is still in the works, says Undead Labs.
This is Agricola, available now on iOS from Playdek Games. Based on one of German board game designer Uwe Rosenberg's finest creations, it's deep, satisfying and a little complex, but nowhere near as complex as this:
Frankly MSRP I don't give a damn.
“I played Dark Souls II,” I said to a friend of mine one night at E3 over drinks. He leaned in. His eyes suddenly got wide and he got a little quiet.
