The latest in the Rust accident
Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and to Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on “Rust”. No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period. 💔— Brandon Bruce Lee (@brandonblee) October 22, 2021

I always trust a cat in a hardhat.
Vegas Loop is expanding - 29 miles and 51 stations!— The Boring Company (@boringcompany) October 20, 2021
Thanks to the Clark County team for the great partnership and to the Commissioners for unanimous approval. https://t.co/KrfF5SUsxq

Show me your strength
Size seems to matter in this case.
Bringing you the tier lists that really matter.

No big deal to our man, discoRyne. Just shiving dudes, like one does. Better than him metaphorically shiving us in Rocket League.
Spelunky 2 still going strong
There aren't a lot of games that know how to kick you straight in the gonads the way that Spelunky 2 still does.
IT'S STILL REAL TO ME, DAMMIT!
While AEW's Adam Cole takes tonight off from AEW Rampage, let's watch him team up with the former Tyler Breeze to take on Halo... and say a few things about the current state of Twitch.
Tonight in video game music
The latest from Mariachi Entertainment System is up! And with the Halloween holiday coming up, they take on this classic track from Ghosts 'n Goblins.
