John Whitney was one of the earliest pioneers of computer graphics, most memorably known for his work on the opening sequence of Hitchcock’s Vertigo. But even in this educational video for IBM in 1968, the distance that computer graphics has come is startlingly clear.
Cap’s shield has deflected all kinds of shit over the last few years, but outside the Marvel universe, vibranium is in short supply. So what can Captain America’s shield do when it’s made of titanium?
The fastest anybody has ever beaten the original Super Mario Bros. is with a time of 4:57.427. The man who currently holds that record isn’t happy with it, though. He knows he can do it faster.
Fallout 4 has a ridiculous number of terminals, most of which the average player will never see. One man, however, has actually spent over 25 hours poring through every computer in Fallout 4. It’s madness.
Active Worlds is an MMO from 1995 that nobody really plays anymore. That’s where this story begins.
Today on Highlight Reel we have a dabbing Palpatine, bad rocket aim, Rainbow 6 breaching failures, tasers, and much much more.
Mario Maker’s most notorious player is back again with another devilishly difficult level. This one is a little different, though. There’s a trap at the end, and it’s a little too good.
It’s been 17 years since the original release of Pokémon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back. Since then, there’s been 19 other Pokémon movies. For veteran Pokémon players, I’m guessing that none of the newer movies match up to the original one, though.

For most people, beating Fallout 4 means sinking dozens of hours into the game—and that’s just sticking to the main story missions. Speedrunners, however, have figured out how to beat the game in just a little over an hour. It’s incredible.
Fallout 4 is a pretty absurd game, on the whole. One moment you might become a comic book hero, the next you might go on a quest for a long-lost drinking buddy robot. That’s just the stuff on the surface. Things can get even stranger, if you look in the right places.
Sometimes, Fallout 4 feels less like an RPG than it does a straight-up horror game.
When you first leave the vault in Fallout 4, you’ll notice there’s a locked container at the end of the level. It has a gun; a really good gun, by the looks of it. One problem: there’s no way to actually open the container so early in the game. Unless, of course, you know of a loophole.

Right now, there’s a course titled “Pit of Panga: P-Break” floating around in Super Mario Maker. Thousands of people have tried this level. Not a single person has beaten it yet.
