A...

The saddest part of the satire image above (via The Onion) is that they actually manage to match the correct controller with the right game. That's more than we can say about many of the non-satirical articles. Check out the highlights for this weekend: Joystiquery Happy Birthday PS3: The cake is (...

The Onion, in full-on satiric overdrive, took some stabs at both the Wii and PS3 in a fairly funny side-by-side comparison. Taking the everyman approach to labelling each system's strengths and weaknesses in a full-on 'two systems enter, one system leaves' battle in the Thunderdome, they gauge such...

The Onion A.V. Club has inventoried "11 Of Video Gaming's Strangest Moments" and come up with some real doozies. What other list runs the gamut from facing off with Hitler's disembodied head in a giant robot suit in Wolfenstein 3D to a pre-1UP Jane Pinckard famously facing off with Rez's trance vibr...

The Onion has published a humorous love letter which makes sense to any WoW player, though it has a poignant side.
