Hang on to your seats, Wikia gamers. Rockstar, the company behind Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, is releasing L.A. Noire on May 17. The game is a dark, gritty take on 1940’s Los Angeles, where players work their way up from beat cop to detective as they solve historical high-profile crimes.

Who was the actor that played “man of faith” John Locke on LOST? Which is not considered a root vegetable: a carrot, turnip, lima bean, or rutabaga? These are just some of the questions that The Game Show Network asked viewers, prompting them to dig through wikis for a chance to win snazzy prizes.
Last week, Wikia Trivia was featured on the Game Show Network’s live show, GSN Live.

Then, toward the end of the show, the host took a caller to answer the question -- which hopefully they’d found out by then! -- and surprised…Read more >
It wasn’t the cutest gaming character ever... nor was it the most helpful. It wasn’t soft, it wasn’t snuggly, and it didn’t have big, round eyes—heck, it didn’t have any eyes, period. And yet, for reasons we can’t understand, the Weighted Companion Cube from Valve’s Portal stole our hearts, and we were devastated when ours was “euthanized.”
Luckily, Valve saw fit to release a plush version of everyone’s favorite multi-faceted friend. We ordered one as soon as we found out they existed, and it’s been providing us with weighted companionship ever since.
We realize that a lot of gamers out there are still dealing with the sting of losing their own WCCs. Since the wound has been reopened with the release of Portal 2, we've decided to take seriou…
