Five Nights at Freddy’s short video will scare you ahead of the movie

Five Nights at Freddy’s short video will scare you ahead of the movie

In case you somehow missed the news, the mobile horror game "Five Nights at Freddy's" will be making its way to the big screen. More details on that later. What we have in the meantime is a fan-created short video that has production quality far outpacing what we typically see in fan videos, and it offers a glimpse of the game's world that is simultaneously exciting and frightening. We don't yet know what to expect from the movie, but if it's anything like this, the future is looking bright.

PlayStations with Silent Hills “P.T.” game banned from eBay

PlayStations with Silent Hills “P.T.” game banned from eBay

In the recent past there was a lot of excitement surrounding the playable trailer "P.T." and the promise of a new game called "Silent Hills". Everything about it was great right up until the moment when Konami decided to cancel the game and break a collective bunch of hearts. Joining the announcement was removal of the "P.T." trailer/game, meaning those who hadn't downloaded it were entirely out of luck. Many who had downloaded it did exactly what you'd expect: ran to eBay with their consoles, where their listings were promptly squashed.

Goat Simulator gets “GoatZ” zombie DLC on Steam

The folks behind Goat Simulator have released a DLC that is full of puns and fun jabs, not the least of which is due to its double entendre name "GoatZ". If you don't get what that sounds like, we'll not spoil your innocence. What you do need to know is that this DLC brings zombies. Lots of zombies. In GoatZ, gamers play as a goat decked out with weapons and tasked with surviving in a world filled with the undead. Have you ever seen a goat wield an automatic rifle? You will in the video we have after the jump.

Mortal Kombat X PC patch pulled after erasing data

Mortal Kombat X hasn’t been available for long, but it has already began causing problems for some users — in this case, those who are playing the game on the PC. A recent PC patch, users began reporting, was causing game data to be erased and gamers were losing their progress. In addition, the PC patch also resulted in some odd issue with the resolution, as some gamers discovered the game would launch in a low resolution after the patch was applied. As a result, the developer behind the fix has pulled it and is looking into the matter.

Itching to play MS-DOS games on Twitter? Think again

Itching to play MS-DOS games on Twitter? Think again

Ah MS-DOS games on Twitter, we have known you only so briefly. After a bit of excitement over the revelation that you can not only retweet but also play old-school MS-DOS games right from inside a Tweet, it seems that the fun and games are over. At the expense of getting branded as a kill joy, Twitter pulled the plug on the Internet Archives' latest experiment. That said, it is quite understandable considering it violated Twitter's rules, but it's still a downer that one of the easiest ways for a classic game to go viral is now off limits.

Sims expansion pack caused alien abductions and pregnant men

Earlier this year, The Sims received a "Get to Work" expansion pack that, it turns out, had far more interesting results than the initial announcement had indicated. For one thing, players discovered that there were alien abductions -- lots of alien abductions. Furthermore, and as a result of such alien abductions and certain WooHooing activities, gamers were discovering that their male sims ended up pregnant. This, understandably, caused a lot of questions from gamers, though many liked the new unusual world.

Steam developers may now ban users

Should a player resort to cheating in a game you make and release to Steam, you now have the power to ban that player from your game. Valve has released this newest ability to developers as of the 29th of April, 2015, and it should be rolling out to all developers by the end of the weekend.

Older folks react to Mortal Kombat X fatalities

Reaction videos are all the rage anymore: we've seen videos of kids reacting to old cameras and gaming systems, older folks reacting to Google Glass, and a bunch between.
