People may rag on Uber for its tendency to play fast and loose with the law, but they don't have a patch on The Onion's parody version of the ridesharing outfit. The site just posted a video introducing "Uber Seize," a mock service tier that would let you swipe cars to get where you're going. Inst...

That's because a Brit couldn't parody something unless they'd been given direct permission from the creator or paid for a license. That meant for most people, maki...

Does anyone still remember Dungeon Runners? I do, at least. It was that quirky Diablo-style MMO from NCsoft that ran from 2007 to 2010, openly lampooning RPG and online gaming tropes while actually being pretty fun to play.

Sometimes, it's easy to get so excited that you spontaneously burst into song. After all, that's the logic behind most musicals, no? Microsoft's OneNote team took that idea and ran with it, cribbing from Les Miserables in the process. See, after setting its note-taking app free last month, the tea...

Remember the olden days? When honor and valor were the only things that mattered and vast metallic armor suits were less of a laughing matter and more of a practical necessity? Neither do we, but that doesn't stop us from enjoying a good video gaming romp through such settings when we have the time...

Feeling a little underwhelmed by this week's iPad 2 launch? This promotional video recently unearthed by Conan O'Brien goes some distance in explaining why this might be... and why you're probably not alone.

This, dear friends, is the height of comedy. Opera's pair of Scandinavian browser testers are back, this time applying some extremely high-tech speed tests to determine whether the Norwegian browser is faster than boiling a potato. Seriously, if you're not laughing at this, you either work for Goog...
