Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Is A Crossover Event 20 Years In The Making

In 1999, an ambitious crossover game allowed players to experience the video game fights of their dreams. Who would win in an actual fight between Mario and Donkey Kong? Could Samus overtake her fellow space traveler Fox McCloud? What if in his travels, Link encounters Pikachu? These questions may or may not have entered your consciousness before Super Smash Bros. launched on Nintendo 64, but the idea of video game characters leaving their respective games to meet on a battlefield ignited players’ imaginations. Soon, players were fantasizing about what other characters could make their way into a sequel.

Replay – Tony Hawk's Underground

Replay – Tony Hawk's Underground

It's no secret that we at G.I. are huge fans of skateboarding video games, even going so far as to play goo-goo baby crayon games in order to get our halfpipe-hugging fix. Luckily, we've got just the video series to help us through these dark, skateboard-averse times. This week on Replay, Reiner, Suriel, Leo, and I take a look at one of the less-classic entries in the classic Tony Hawk series – and it doesn't take long for things to go...off the rails. Get it? Rails are a skateboarding thing. Oh, nevermind. 

Watch us as we skate our way through New Jersey and New York, helping random citizens and ruining the lives of innocent nut vendors – hey, a skater's life is complicated. We also may or may not discuss the reprehensible lack of modern skateboarding games on the market – you'll just have to tune in to see if that's a real talking point or not!

Here Are All Of Red Dead Redemption II's Cheat Codes (So Far)

Red Dead Redemption II has a lot going for it: beautiful story, brutal and gripping combat, fascinating realistic mechanics. Oh, and a bunch of cheat codes. You remember those right? It was before the days of being charged money for "EXP boosts" in games. Anyway, Red Dead Redemption II has a lot of them! Some of them still haven't been unlocked, but here's all of them for now and how you input them.

To input cheats, do the following:

Go to settings. Look in the bottom right corner. You'll see the button you need to press to access the cheats menu (Triangle or Y depending on your platform). Press it. You'll come to a screen filled with locked codes. You need to input certain phrases to unlock them. Keep in mind, after you use a cheat, saving becomes disabled as do achievements/trophies.

Science-Fiction Weekly – A Video Journey Into Fallout 76's Wasteland

Science-Fiction Weekly – A Video Journey Into Fallout 76's Wasteland

Fallout 76 is out now, and Game Informer's review is coming along...slowly. Bethesda Game Studios has crafted a massive open-world experience, and we want to subject ourselves to as much of it as we can before offering a verdict. My time with the game has bounced chaotically between good and bad, delivering enjoyable exploration that is eventually crushed by glitches, bugs, and puzzling balancing issues.

In the video below, Leo Vader joins me for a brief tour into the wasteland. My character is mid-level and I'm exploring the eastern region of the world. In our previous three-hour video, we showed off cooperative play extensively. I wanted to show off a little of the single-player experience, and what questing on your own can be like. Spoiler: It's a lot like Fallout 4.

If there's anything else you'd like to see, let us know in the comments section below. My play session is occurring around the clock, and I may be able to accommodate your requests.
