YouTuber explores abandoned virtual world, ends up inside a creepy nightmare

Massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) are some of the most fascinating games in the industry. Unlike other games, MMOs allow hundreds or even thousands of players to explore a virtual world simultaneously, taking on the forces of evil and competing in server-wide warfare.

But the only thing more fascinating than a living, breathing MMO is one that has been abandoned for over a decade, as is the case with Active Worlds.

Nintendo Wii U Production Ending

With Wii U’s fate in question, Nintendo’s NX might be its last chance

With Wii U’s fate in question, Nintendo’s NX might be its last chance

By on March 23, 2016 at 1:03 PM.

After spending three-and-a-half years languishing at the bottom of the market, the Wii U is finally being put to rest. That’s according to a report published by Japan’s Nikkei on Tuesday, which claims that Nintendo will cease production of the ill-fated console before the end of 2016, perhaps in preparation for the rumored NX console.

Hours later, Nintendo responded to the report by denying it out of hand, saying that it wasn’t an official report from the company. According to Nintendo, “production is scheduled to continue” in the coming months.

But whether or not the report is completely accurate, it begs an interesting question about the future of the company: Is the next home console Nintendo’s last chance to compete with the PS4, Xbox One, PC and VR?

Well, the Xbox One’s days of being “the expensive console” are long gone, and right now you can buy a brand new console starting at just $299… and that includes two free games! More →

Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit over racy GTA V photo can proceed, Court rules

The New York Supreme Court recently ruled that it would not dismiss Lindsay Lohan’s bizarre and arguably frivolous lawsuit against Rockstar Games. As a quick refresher, Lohan sued Rockstar Games back in 2014 alleging that the company used her likeness to create the character of Lacey Jonas in GTA V. Even if you’ve never played the game, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Jonas’ photo gracing a billboard or inside of a Best Buy at some point in time.
