Cheat Code Central
  • There's no doubt fighting games have grown much more complex than simply mashing the punch and kick buttons these days. But have things become so overly complicated, we need to dumb things down a bit?

  • The Street Fighter V beta issues are par for the course. It's the complete blow-up within the fighting game community that seems just a bit off.

  • Let's face it. Video game movies have historically been bad. But there's some DVDs and Blu-rays on everyone's shelves they've always loved to hate. Here are just a few flicks CheatCC feels a little guilty about secretly liking.

  • Up until now, the PS4 has been easily outselling the Xbox One. However, the tide seems to have turned at this year's E3. Insert Charlie Sheen "winning" joke here.

  • Did you know Super Mario was named after a mild-mannered landlord at Nintendo's offices in the 1980s? And exactly how does Popeye factor into the creation of a pop culture icon? This and much more, as CheatCC uncovers the secret origins behind some of your favorite gaming characters.
