Someone made a robot to play Google Chrome's No Internet Dinosaur Game

They did. The crazy bastard actually did it! — kattemonster (@null4bl3) April 6, 2020 If you use Chrome, it's likely you've seen the 2-bit dinosaur that appears when your computer is not connected to the internet. It's an infinite runner game. The object is to jump over oncoming cacti and duck under pterodactyls. To play it while you are connected to the internet, copy and paste chrome://dino/ into the address bar of Chrome. Spacebar starts the game, then use up a...

NASCAR retains sponsors for esports series as Bubba Wallace loses his

NASCAR drivers can now lose real-world sponsors for conduct in virtual competition. That’s what happened to Bubba Wallace on April 5 when he rage-quit a race in the eNASCAR iRacing Pro Invitational — a substitute for the sport’s live rubber-to-pavement action during the COVID-19 pandemic. As live audience sports organizations have paused playoffs and closed stadiums, NASCAR has found traction in an esports alternative to keep racing and sponsorships going through the coronavirus crisis. ...

I Wish Animal Crossing Treated Islands More Like Real Life

The next few months are going to be amazing for Nintendo Switch ports

As anyone that's been kicking around here for the past few years knows, I love the Nintendo Switch—not so much for its new games, although I do dig a number of those too. For me, the Switch is the ultimate port machine. As I do the majority of my work on a slowly dying early 2015 13" MacBook Pro Retina laptop, it's reasonable to say that I haven't been set up to play the majority of PC, PS4 and Xbox titles that have come down the pike, these past five years. Happily, My Switch is allowing me to ...

Prince of Persia's Groundbreaking Character Animations Started Life in a High School Parking Lot

'Killer Queen Black': like multiplayer 'Joust'

I have been enjoying Killer Queen Black. I started playing KQB in beta, on the recommendation of some friends who played the arcade version regularly in a bar. This game is a hoot! In addition to a 'Military' win where you beat up the other team with flying creatures that operate a heck of a lot like the awesome ostrich riders in Joust, you can also win by collecting berries ("Economic") or racing a snail across a finish line ("Badass".) Three-player teams take on three-player teams, or y...

Shieldwall: A fun video game where you control a Roman legion

I have been loving Shieldwall, a strategy game where you and your Roman legion attempt to kick the crap out of other Roman legions! This game reminds me of a 3D Starcraft, with (thus far) a lot less complexity. You start with one base and attempt to take others from other CG teams! More bases result in more resources for you to spend, so get to work! This site claims to offer a free download. I bought it on Steam for less than $10. Shieldwall on Steam/P
