Around the gaming horn

If I'm Pete Davidson, I seriously start wondering how I end up on another one of these teams after last time.

Saints Row is wingsuiting now! Why? Just Cause.

If you missed the news earlier this week, Destroy All Humans is back this August!

Lastly, IGN gets a first look at the combat in Sonic Frontiers.

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Mmm... donuts

It's National Donut Day across this great land of ours!

Depending on where you live, you might have to wait a while, so plan accordingly.

Chonky squirrel!

If you're walking your dogs and they happen to lead you to a donut shop, well, there's just nothing you can do, is there?

Just don't take his donut, otherwise he might come to life and nothing good ever comes of that.

"That's not us, we swear!"

Now why would they feel the need to clarify...?

Oh dear.

Hey, let's check in on Pop! Goes the Culture!

Beauty into old age

If we've learned anything from original Chun-Li actress Ming-Na Wen, it's that Chun-Li being beautiful into old age is totally believable. I mean, it's not really possible to make this character ugly in any...

Right... that did happen, didn't it?

What could have been

Well, don't leave us hanging, Ed.

The incredible, edible egg

It's been a minute since we've checked in on Maximilian.

This is the kind of thing Homer Simpson has been warning us about.

Nothing but the Hotfix

For this week's Games Done Quick Hotfix spotlight, we take our second straight look at the developing Metroid Dread scene. Runners have begun discovering more and more glitches and we see a few of them broken down in heavy detail with the latest episode of That's Never Happened Before.

Remember to catch GDQ's Hotfix shows every week at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.

This week in Shaqnews

Shaq is esports.


A big part of this might be because it's Adam Cole doing a Randy Savage impression, but this felt like vintage G4.

Tonight in video game music

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
