Something Awful is in the process of changing hands to a new owner. In the meantime we're pausing all updates and halting production on our propaganda comic partnership with Northrop Grumman.
The model kit for the most basic-ass white bread Gundam of all (Johnathan Gundam is its name, I believe) is only $11. I am eager to escape reality. Now that's what I call a formula for adventure!
We're getting a new cockpit-focused Star Wars flight game this October! While visions of the classic LucasArts simulators X-Wing and TIE Fighter do barrel rolls in our heads, we should temper our expectations.
I had to kill a young enemy scout with the detached head and neck of a giraffe. Afterwards, in a powerful moment, Ellie realized it was the giraffe from the first Last of Us. In a more powerful moment, Ellie realized the giraffe's neck was tattooed with the words I BET THAT KID HAD A FAMILY

Let's say you have a PlayStation, either because it was already in your closet or because you decided to spend ten thousand dollars for one after the virus arrived. How can you get the most out of the console in 2020?
I Had Peaceful Protestors Gassed And Beaten So I Could Waddle To This Photo Op Like A Big Boy And All I Got Was This Prop Bible
Every now and then a forum member posts something so creative and impressive that I stop shouting in anger at my monitor. Today I'd like to highlight a particularly amazing post.
Are you aware of a SimCity 2000 release that came on A LOT OF FLOPPIES? As in, ten or more 3.5" disks? Because I spent the better part of an afternoon watching my friend install it in the mid 90s. Yet there's no record that this version of the game existed.

Jurassic Park was based on actual events. Specifically, the time that Steven Spielberg stumbled and yelped in surprise at the sight of a small lizard on top of a fence.
The Alloy Origins Core is a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard made of airplane-grade aluminum, which prompts the question: Why don't they make the whole plane out of keyboard?
By virtue of one thousand pieces of unearned gold and the fact that my floppy white buttcheeks are planted on the top of a horse, I am a leader of soldiers. Well, I say soldiers. What I mean is four grubby drifters with spears and more ear hair than combat experience.
Knock knock! Who's there? Lembas. Lembas who? Lembas in already, we're cold out here!
A newly implemented Vancian magic system requires you to rest after using up your daily allotment of arcane powers.

Screw the four brackets into the four legs. If you find yourself screwing a fifth bracket into a fifth leg, something has gone terribly wrong.
OH THe games! FINAL FANCY VII: REMARK, JOHN MADEIT FOOTBALL 2021, and THE LEGEND OF ZACHA: BRAFF OH HE WILD all on one cart plus 98 more!
Brain Surgeon For Fleas? Sorry, you've got the wrong bounce house. You need to go that way, just past the Warhammer Miniatures Painting Workshop bounce house.
For a limited time you can buy a luxury car with a low down payment and no interest for six months. This is the same promotion we planned to run anyway, but our commercial voiceovers are reading the details in a somber, reassuring tone.
Ask each customer if they have Covid-19. If they say no, ask if they would like to pre-order Covid-19. Explain the benefits of pre-ordering. Upsell them on Covid-19 insurance (to protect their Covid-19) and a subscription to Game Informer.
The scowling Combine guard commands you to pick up a piece of trash and throw it in the garbage can. Do as he says. Now he commands you to pick up another piece of trash and throw it in the garbage can from the three point line. Do this as well.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Doom Eternal. March 20th. As a people we have not been faced with a choice of such consequence since... well, ever.
DO take this time to finally catch up on all that worrying you've been meaning to do. DON'T forget to take fifteen minutes breaks to worry after every hour of worrying.
I know about the Ice Planet Huh which is where that famous conflict took place, the Battle of Yeahman.
I always wanted a VR headset but refused to buy a product made by Facebook, or through inaction allow a Facebook product to enter my home. Now I finally own one!
Remember that program you thought you uninstalled? Now taking its remnants and hiding them in another location like system_hidden/roamingsupersecret/935093581/essentialfiles...
There is a corn in the pot. The pot is hot. The pot is full of water and the water is hot. It's all hot. The heat underneath is what is making it hot. How do you get the corn out of there?
For impossible difficulty stand behind your monitor or tv and face the wall.
In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Oh dear, I forgot to pick Luke up at the airport.
Is this really the first Peculiar Panels in six years? Well, let's pretend I ended the last installment by saying we would be back in a Flash. GET IT?
Remember the mystery port on the bottom of the SNES? The Xbox Series X mystery port lines up with that one perfectly, allowing the two systems to "scissor" one another.
The Jared: A tuna sub pressed into the shape of Subway Jared's face, with a tomato slice for a leering smile and jalapenos for his dead eyes. This sub proved to be unpopular because Subway is bland trash on garbage bread.
What if MAME was hardware-based with a broader scope? What if the Mega SG required more tinkering but had the potential to run everything up to the Saturn and N64? What if my clunky rhetorical questions painted a decent enough picture of the MiSTer for you to let this paragraph slide?
5G disrupts over-the-air tv and inhibits weather forecasting, placing human lives at risk. But it's one more G! So it's faster! What's next?
This critique is so conceptually massive that my patented One Sentence Reviews format cannot contain it. It is so massive, in fact, that I needed two sentences.
Our first gaming chair review establishes the industry's standard benchmarks: How Many Times I Fell, Chairs Per Second, and Replay Value.
My knee had once been chopped up by a running boat propeller. As a child I had saved up my allowance for months to buy Bart vs the Space Mutants for the NES. So yeah, I was familiar with how arbitrary and cruel life could be. But this was different.
This walkthrough is for users who plan to watch the theatrical release of Inside Llewyn Davis in a movie theater. You will need to wait for my Blu-Ray and streaming walkthroughs if you plan to watch the movie on a Blu-Ray disc or stream it.
The Nintendo GameCube. Best-looking console ever made. Like my pale and fragile body, every inch of its design screamed, "I was made to play video games!"
Twas the night before Catsmas, and all through the land; Theaters downloaded patches, to fix Judi Dench's hand
Sure, the primary source of inspiration for the new Xbox's design was clearly a box of saltine crackers, but I'm into it. Lay that thing on its side on a shelf below a sound bar and you've got... well you've got two long rectangles near one another. Seems like a nice enough thing to have.
Someone must have spilled the beans about my soft spot for the Neo Geo - a spot encompassing my entire body - because SNK sent me their new Arcade Stick Pro.
12AM: Board a personal hyperjet for lunch at Super Olive Garden, the Olive Garden that lays a slice of American cheese on top of every plate of pasta whether you like it or not
REMINDER: If you leave a skull lying around up on the surface it will get robo-stomped for sure. We've all seen how much those robots love to crush a cranium beneath a mechanical heel and glare around dramatically. Keep your skulls on shelves, people!
With 2020 just around the corner everyone's compiling a Best Games of the 2010s list. And they're all wrong. John Woo's Stranglehold (which came out in 2007) is clearly the greatest game of the 2010s.
If you love Baby Yoda, you're going to lose your minds for Baby Sarlacc Pit and Baby Trade Federation Senate Tax Blockade.
Google's Stadia launched this Tuesday to a level of fanfare that has not been seen since the Ouya. So who is the audience for this $130 video game streaming-but-not-how-you-think not-console?
