See Visualizations Of Mouse Movement For Games Like Minecraft And Team Fortress 2

Reddit user Gking19 tracked the movement of his mouse for a number of games, and the results are surprisingly striking.

Above you will see a visualization for Minecraft, but Gking19 also did tracking for Agar.io, Company of Heroes, Team Fortress 2, and Ultimate General: Gettysburg. You can see them all here.

GKing19 used software called IOGraphica to track his mouse movement, which you can find here. If you're curious about the dots above, those are where the mouse stayed stationary for an extended period of time.

Partially Compiled ‘Hunt The Truth’ Halo 5 Image Shows Blue Team Together

After scouring social media accounts and various news outlets, a Reddit member has compiled several images sent by Microsoft to reveal a larger image. While the image isn't complete yet, the first fully completed section has revealed an image of Blue Team, Master Chief's group of SPARTAN-IIs from before the events of Halo: Combat Evolved.

Thanks to ChiefCanuck, we have a full look at Blue Team, which currently consists of John-117 (Master Chief), Frederic-104, Kelly-087, and Linda-058. The team first appeared in The Fall of Reach, a novel that served as a prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved. Since then, Blue Team has appeared in several novels and comics. Blue Team also appeared in the acclaimed Forward Unto Dawn live-action film.

The image above was taken from a much larger picture compiled by members of the ReadyUpLive community on Reddit. To check out the full compiled image, you can head here. Halo 5: Guardians is scheduled to hit Xbox One on October 27.

Our Take
This certainly took some dedication on the part of the Reddit community. This look at Blue Team could mean anything for its participation in the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians, but it would be great to see them reunited within a game.

Artist Imagines The Star Fox Team As Drawn By Hanna-Barbera

An artist going by simply "Jonas" online has crafted the Star Fox team as though they exist in same universe as The Jetsons.

The Jetsons are of course just one of the many shows and characters created by Hanna-Barbera, but it seems to be the universe the Star Fox team would most likely exist when looking at Hanna-Barbera's large library.

You can see more of Jonas' work on their DeviantArt page, or their website. You actually won't find a lot of video game stuff (though there is this very cool one with Samus and a Metroid), but it's still definitely worth checking out.

Sega and Game Freak, best known for their Pokémon franchise, have teamed up to bring the side-scrolling action platformer Tembo The Badass Elephant, coming this summer for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Just how badass is this elephant? Check out the humorous and cartoon-like game in the trailer below.
