Scientifically Accurate Sonic is everything you never wanted to know about hedgehog poop

Hedgehogs are more weirdly scatological and cannibalistic than the Sonic the Hedgehog series has led us to believe, as clearly and cartoonishly illustrated by the latest episode of Scientifically Accurate from Fox's Animation Domination High-Def. In the incredibly catchy yet informative video, we learn about the least appealing traits of actual hedgehogs, which include creating a poopy froth and then rubbing that mixture on themselves to the bewilderment of science. The Scientifically Accurate Sonic video touches on the real-world relationship between hedgehogs, foxes and echidnas — and which of Sonic the Hedgehog's friends has the most unique penis. In light of the feces eating, hedgehog-on-hedgehog violence and cartoon genitalia under discussion in the above video, let's call this...

Here's the opening to that Bayonetta anime they've been talking about forever

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, the feature-length anime film starring Platinum Games' gun-toting witch, is slated to launch in North America on Oct. 21 — and if you're too impatient to wait until then, you can check out the English dub's opening below. The anime, led by Afro Samurai director Fuminori Kizaki and produced by animation studio Gonzo, was first released in Japan last year.

Fans can currently pre-order Bayonetta: Bloody Fate on Blu-ray or DVD for $26.24 through...

First footage of the 'Warcraft' movie is 10 seconds of its logo

Warcraft movie director Duncan Jones and Legendary Pictures brought a brief teaser of the forthcoming fantasy film to San Diego Comic-Con today, but that footage will likely remain exclusive to attendees of the con for the foreseeable future. Comic-Con attendees were treated to a look at the two sides of the Warcraft conflict, the Alliance and Horde, and the respective heroes for each faction, the human Lothar and the orc Durotan. The Warcraft movie will focus on the orcs versus humans conflict, and serve as an origin story for Blizzard's Warcraft universe. Publicly, Legendary released an animated look at the movie's logo — but that's it. So don't be too disappointed when you press play on the 10 second-long YouTube teaser that the studio released today. At last year's Comic-Con,...

Freedom Planet - Overview video

If Treasure made a Sonic game, it would probably look a lot like this.Freedom Planet is just dripping with authenticity, with a presentation and indescribable feel that hearkens back to the Sega Genesis days of old. It manages to pull off a difficult balancing act, borrowing and transforming elements from games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Rocket Knight Adventures without coming off as derivative. It's got bipedal, talking animal hybrids — a staple of platformers from the era. It has so many things, which we try to outline in the Overview video posted above.

Last of Us Remastered Photo Mode screens go from brutal to kawaii

If you've been curious about how The Last of Us Remastered's so-called "Photo Mode" works, Naughty Dog's Jeff Negus walks you through it in the above video. It appears to be off by default, but can be enabled through the game's pause menu. Once enabled, clicking L3 (the left analog stick) freezes the action, allowing you to compose your shot, accounting for things like camera (roll, dolly, orbit, etc.), field of view for "focusing on the little details on a character," color filter, frame and vignette for that perfect Instagram vibe. Our favorite? The film grain, granting The Last of Us that '70s cinema vibe it demands. From there, it's a quick click on the Dual Shock 4's "Share" button and it's available for everyone to see. At the end of the video, Negus teases an upcoming...

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will keep the games' original multiplayer glitches

Halo: The Master Chief Collection's makers want to remain faithful to the way the four included games — Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3 and Halo 4 — played, so they're planning to retain whatever glitches may have appeared in the original multiplayer components of those titles, co-developer 343 Industries said during a panel today at Comic-Con International 2014. "Bluntly, that was a difficult conversation internally, in the first place, because for every person irritated [by a glitch] there are five who love that stuff," O'Connor said. "So education will have to be some of that process." O'Connor was responding to a fan who coyly asked if any infinite ammunition glitches in the original games' multiplayer would be fixed for the re-releases. "Would that be the rocket infinite...

It takes 40 minutes to drive across country in The Crew, watch it happen right here

The Crew is a mammoth undertaking for Ubisoft, an attempt to blend the open-world nature of most of their new games with a touch of massively online multiplayer and then, of course, inject it into a solid racing title. One of the game's many selling points is that the entire country is, in some form, represented in the game. That doesn't mean it's a one-to-one recreation of the United States, just that the game allows you to visit regions and drive literally across country. How literally? Just watch the video below. In it, YouTuber Birds AT used the PC beta release of the game to drive from Miami Beach, Florida to Marina del Ray, California in a single take, with no loading screens. The entire 40-minute journey takes the player across three regions: The South, Mountain States and West...

GTA 4 now looks as good as GTA 5 — if you have a PC

The best Grand Theft Auto 4 mod — arguably one of the best mods of all time — has been updated. iCEnhancer 3.0 further improves upon the mod that increases the graphical fidelity of GTA 4 to levels that rival and sometimes surpass its successor. But unlike GTA 5, the iCEnhancer mod has been developed externally, albeit with Rockstar Games' tacit support. Which is to say, they haven't shut down the mod with a cease-and-desist. The mod introduces a number of new features and tweaks some preexisting ones to improve the overall look, including depth of field, lens textures, post-effects, bloom, motion blur and color processing. And all of the features are customizable, allowing players to tweak the game's appearance, ideal for those who hate when bloom lighting makes the game look like a...

A guided video tour of an Unreal Tournament map

Yesterday, we posted about Epic’s streamed reveal of brand new concept art for it's new Unreal Tournament. There was a lot of discussion and detail — 47 minutes worth of detail. We've cut out everything but the visual portion of the stream, so you can focus entirely on the environmental walkthrough. And here are the four juiciest bits from the walkthrough itself. Unless otherwise noted, all quotes are from Art Director Chris Perna. "The sci-fi industrial look" "This, in my mind, kind of represents the sci-fi industrial look. We can go grimier with this. But when we talk about visual clarity, and things like that, I think this kind of hits that mark." "Epic's creative process" "You start with a map that’s just kind of the basic shell, and we just focus on the gameplay....

Tour the next great Metroidvania with its developer

Bodie Lee has had an idea since he was a child — a strange, fantasy world where playing with time is just a part of every day life. Now Lee is bringing that idea into reality in the form of a gorgeous, exploration-heavy action-adventure game.Lee joined me to record a playthrough of his demo for Timespinner, which you can watch above. While the game is far from done — he's currently aiming for a November 2015 release — Lee already has the basics of gameplay down and a strong art style as demonstrated in the demo. If you like what you see, you can check out the Timespinner Kickstarter, which has just over a day left until completion.
