Adrian Peterson Removed From Madden Giferator

Adrian Peterson may be playing this Sunday, but he's out of Madden's GIFerator.

EA Sports put up a GIF creation site a couple weeks ago to support its Madden NFL 15 launch. Vikings runningback Adrian Peterson was originally included as one of five GIFable players from the team (seen above). He has been silently removed from the site in what can only be due to his recent child abuse scandal. The Vikings page now displays Matt Cassel, Chad Greenway, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Brian Robison.

The following terms are blocked from use, though it's unclear if they were ever allowed: switch, child, women, woman, abuse, violence, whoop.

First 4 Figures Introduces Two New Mega Man Statues

Despite being neglected by Capcom for so long, Mega Man lives on in our hearts (and in Super Smash Bros.). You can also honor one of 8-bit’s greatest stars with two new statues from First 4 Figures.

The two different versions of this new Mega Man collectible look the same, though there are some feature differences. The “exclusive version” features LED lights (common in many of First 4’s releases). 

The lighted version will retail for $229 and is limited to 4,254 units. The regular edition is priced at $199, but only 1,000 will be made. Both will ship in the first quarter of 2015. A Protoman statue is on the way also, though no images of that have been shared yet.

Player Puts Super Smash Bros. Final Smashes Against Their Brawl Counterparts

about X hours ago from

Smash fans have been able to sate their cravings thanks to a playable demo, but if you're like me, you still want more. A new video has surfaced, showing some of the returning characters' new Final Smash moves. It looks as though the combatants haven't been slacking off since the last Smash installment.

The clip, from YouTube user Master0fHyrule, shows nine of the updated Final Smashes, compared to the characters' equivalent maneuver in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. There are nine new moves in the video, and it's definitely worth a look. If nothing else, it'll give you time to prepare your "_______ is so cheap!" excuses in advance.

about X hours ago from

Bungie warned us that Destiny’s first six-person raid, the Vault of Glass, would be a challenge. The studio recommends that you be at least level 26 before attempting it, and it seems like there’s a good reason for it.

According to Bungie this morning, the first five hours of availability have yielded no victories. Not a single team has managed to complete the Vault of Glass.

If you’ve managed to get a party and give it a try, we’d love for you to share your experiences in the comments. For more on Destiny, check out our review.
