So another E3 has come and gone, and with it we are witness to whole slew of new and exciting things. This year we certainly were not left wanting, with some of the biggest footage including titles like Fallout 4 and Uncharted 4 (those particular captured my interest the most).

A truck carrying a shipment of Special Edition Splatoon Amiibo has been stolen in Europe. Tough luck, says Nintendo to the hapless customers who pre-ordered toys that will never arrive.
A year after meeting during a game of Mario Kart, this couple returned to the video game store for a Legend of Zelda themed wedding. A Super Smash Bros tournament was had during the reception.
Lots of people are rightfully excited at the chance to directly support games they are interested in through sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter.

Modern games can have extremely realistic-looking environments and situations. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that you’re really just looking at a bunch of coloured triangles.
Until, of course, you run over a spot the developer hadn’t anticipated and fall through the floor. Because… it doesn’t actually exist. The suspension of disbelief is gone.
Enjoy these five hilarious game glitches.
