The Utah-based company plans to use VR headsets, body monitors, and high-quality prosthetics to create digital interactive worlds. It's obviously still in its infancy, but if they pull it off nerds around the country will line up to make their Skyrim dreams a reality.

And at the very least, it can't be any worse than Dactyl Nightmare: 



For those of you that weren't alive in the early 90s, Dactyl Nightmare was an early lesson in crushing disappointment wherein you strapped yourself to a massive VR rig and shot things with your crossbow. Chances are it was a stealth project to make kids never excited about the future or technology ever again.

This ain’t fake news. It’s fun news.

On their blog, the Facebook team wrote:

We’ve made it very simple to start playing: In the latest version of the app, open a conversation with a friend (or friends!), tap on the game controller icon just below where you type your message, and choose a game to start playing right away. After you finish a round, people in the conversation will see your score and will have the opportunity to challenge you back. People can also discover games within the Messenger search field, or on Facebook News Feed where they can play solo or challenge friends back in Messenger.

They also write that “1 billion people use messenger every month,” so you can expect for Earth’s collective productivity to drop by a seventh.

Instant Games is available today. Check out Facebook’s blog for more info.

Mario's good at a lot of things: Running, jumping, getting big, turning into a fire dude, being a doctor, plumbing, painting, and driving a go kart. 

One thing he's not particularly good at is being a real-live human being. 

YouTuber CrowbCat made a few modifications to the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey, the game that sticks Mario in a realistic urban setting, which only highlights how weird looking Mario really is. He did them one better, stucking a 6-foot tall Mario inside Grand Theft Auto, so you can see how gross it is for Mario to go to the strip club. Weird.

The idea of Mario, not only disrespecting Peach this way, but also engaging in any type of sexual situation makes me sick to my stomach. But aside from that, you can see Mario drive and explode in a helicopter, fall off a building, and meet a hail of gunfire at the hands of the Liberty City Police.
