Redditor GatorMacheteJr loves Fallout more than you do.  Don't feel threatened, dude loves Fallout more than any of us.  This brave vault dweller collected a grand total of 2,240 bottle caps (around 11 lbs) over the last seven and a half years, and then had the stones to send those to Bethesda as payment for a Fallout 4 pre-order. 



His gamble (and very expensive shipping bill) paid off, because he's receiving a copy of the game.  According to an email he got from Bethesda, since he was the first person to try this method of payment, they'd honor it (read: don't get any ideas, rest of the internet!).  Well done, sir!

How Rezephos flew through Super Mario World without getting a single mushroom, fire flower, cape, star, or Yoshi...we may never know. There were some truly miraculous achievements at Summer Games Done Quick 2016 this year. These are some of our favorites:

Catherine

I don't understand this game, yet I find myself intrigued. Catherine's a puzzle-platformer for Xbox 360 and PS3. You play as a laid back dude named Vince Brooks who dates a lady named Katherine, only to end up falling into a love affair with a sex kitten named Catherine. See what they did there? Juggling two love interests almost always gives way to a full-fledgted sh*tstorm, but 'Ghoul02' upped the ante by playing through the game using two controllers at once.


Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

In this run, 'druvan7' gases up and destroys the All Cup Tour in speed demon fashion.



Check out the rest of the speedy playthrough achievements over here!

Korean indie game developer Bing Yang has reportedly been developing this game by himself for the last two years; and all out of pure inspiration from the Final Fantasy trailers! 


Look at him with that honesty too:

Bing Yang isn't currently sure which consoles Lost Soul Aside will be released on, if and when it is.



Sure the game looks awesome, but this kind of takes the cake:

This weekend at CEO 2015, the fighting game tournament got a little intense. Not the actual gameplay, mind you, but the pre-show.  Watch competitive player Kenneth "Stone Cold" "K-Brad" Bradley enter the, er, ring for an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 match. I kid you not, he knocks a dude out.


Another player, Dieminion, took a much stealthier approach to his entrance:


Dude's like a ninja!

The guy is pretty much the Bob Ross of gadget-casting. By simply using a Raspberry Pi Zero, a USB hub and clay, Doris (lyberty5) created a SNES that could go head to head with Nintendo's upcoming mini-NES on cuteness alone.

A team comprised of well known speedrunners including Tyler Kehne, MKDasher, sonicpacker, Snark, SilentSlayers, Gaehne D, Eru, and To managed to pull off what's being called the 'Holy Grail' of Mario 64 sequence breaks.

It's being called the 'Moat Door Skip' and it was previously presumed impossible....until now. Here's a mere segment from the lengthy post, which describes what this team had to go through to achieve their goal:

“Many years ago, the SM64 community demonstrated with hacks that the moat door was fully functional underwater, and that there was a 1 frame window where Mario could run underwater and open it. Still, the uncooperative geometry of the Castle Grounds map seemed to indicate that the Moat Door Skip would always be a plumber’s pipe dream. However, in 2015 Tyler Kehne identified the parallel universe (PU) glitch, and he immediately realized that it could potentially be used to solve the problem. After overcoming several seemingly fatal issues with applying the glitch, he theorized a method for Moat Door Skip that takes a detour through Vanish Cap Under the Moat. Tyler and sonicpacker then collaborated to demonstrate this method, which required the collection of 10 stars.”

“But in order to make Moat Door Skip useful for a speedrun, the team had to find a way to quickly get into VCUtM with only 0 stars. The only known way to do this involves jumping with a very high negative speed, which results in a proportionally large vertical displacement that can traverse the depth of the water in 1 frame. In order to make the trick work, the team had to design a far more potent BLJ than anything ever seen before on Castle Grounds. SilentSlayers and sonicpacker set to work on surveying for potential BLJs, and eventually they found one on the far side of the lake that allowed several thousand speed to be accumulated. Tyler then figured out how to route the speed to an appropriate jump location, and the vision of the Moat Door Skip was fully realized!”

Guy Playing Pokémon GO Live-Tweets the Ridiculous Number of Rare Pokémon He Encounters in His Condo

This dude needs to start up some sort of business out of his place, and he definitely needs to call it 'The Safari Zone.' If this is all legit and not the deceptive work of decent photoshopping skills, then I'm pretty sure there are plenty of players out there that'd be ready to cruise through his condo.

Just a heads up, but this Dwayne 'The Rock' inspired Pokémon comes out swinging in a blaze of NSFW-ish banter. Gotta love when The Rock himself comes on at the end of the video as well, to describe his love for YouTube.

And why the heck shouldn't the man, with this kind of parody gold? But all in all, Machop --> Machoke --> Machamp --> PokeRock.
