I know what some of you are thinking. "Why would you ever listen to music when you can enjoy the lovely soundtracks video games have to offer?" That's a fair point, and I used to agree with that. But there's a certain point when I can't stand the constant "wahoo!" of Mario Kart or the boring ambient sounds of League of Legends. I need something fresh. I need something that gets me pumped.

What about you? What kind of music do you listen to when playing video games? Hit the jump and let us know in the comments!

Dragon Ball Super's run has sadly come to an end after 131 episodes, but that doesn't mean the story is finished. We believe there's a strong chance that the latest iteration of the hit anime franchise will return after a hiatus of a year or so. If and when it does, it's got some pretty big questions to answer. Hit the jump for three big questions Dragon Ball Super never addressed, and join us in theorizing about the answers!

Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene, the creator of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), recently revealed that he wants to support the game for 20 years, saying, "We want to do this for the next 20 years. We want to build out a platform for game modes and possible esports. We're committed to supporting this game for a long time." As evidence of this continued support, he also detailed maps which are coming out later this year, and the devs are currently hosting betas to test the new "Savage" map, the second round of which begins today.

All that sounds fine, but I have my concerns when a developer announces they want to support one game for a long time. Does a 20-year plan make sense for PUBG? Head inside to join the discussion.

In just over a week, Nintendo will be launching Nintendo Labo, which gives players the ability to craft their own custom peripherals out of cardboard and interact with Switch's features in unique ways. This outside-the-box idea could be the first of many, as Nintendo just announced plans to field new tech ideas from upcoming developers looking to create new experiences on Nintendo Switch. With just about anything in the realm of possibility, what sort of interactive experiences or features would you like to see on Switch?

Video game developers and publishers love to capitalize on the success of their hit games by turning them into big-budgeted Hollywood movies. Movies can draw a larger crowd, making them a more lucrative overall venture...or at least that's usually the case. As we reported earlier today, Grand Theft Auto V has sold so many copies that it's now more profitable than any game or film in history. With Rockstar's hit game already pulling in movie-like profits, should publisher Take-Two consider making the leap?

I've had a few weeks to get accustomed to the the world of virtual reality with the HTC Vive. I've had a total blast playing a ton of games in VR, and it honestly made me change the way I see games. But there's one thing about the bundle I bought that I'm not that thrilled about: Viveport.

Video games have the ability to thrill us with intense action sequences, to grip us with emotional storylines, and to immerse us in fantasy worlds that beg to be explored. Games can be engrossing experiences that demand our full attention, but sometimes that's not what you need. Sometimes you just want to kick back with something simpler, relax, and kill some time. In moments like these, what's your go-to game to pass the time?

One of the most iconic scenes in any iteration of the Dragon Ball franchise is Gohan's transformation into an ultra-powerful Super Saiyan 2 warrior in his battle against Perfect Cell. In that moment, Gohan transcended every known limit to become the strongest character the series had ever seen, surpassing both his father and Vegeta. A lot has changed for Gohan since then, and not for the better. Looking at him in Dragon Ball Super, you'd be hard-pressed to believe they're even the same character. Now that Dragon Ball Super has finished its run (at least for now) it's time to look back on just how big of a disappointment Gohan turned out to be.

It took me a little while, but I finally bought into the virtual reality craze. All three of the main VR headsets are sitting at more enticing prices than ever before, ranging from $299 to $499. These recent price drops were enough to get me to buy an HTC Vive.

I decided to take a look at some of the simpler games the Vive has to offer. One that immediately caught my attention was Audioshield, developed by Dylan Fitterer.

It's been a wild ride since Dragon Ball Super made its debut in 2015. Goku, Vegeta, and friends have discovered other universes, battled gods, faced off against old foes, traveled to the future, and broken past their limits time and time again. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and Toei Animation recently announced that episode 131 will be the final Dragon Ball Super story. If you've been loving this Dragon Ball revival, don't fret! There's no way the series is gone for long.

Earlier this week, THQ announced a partnership with Nickelodeon to bring some beloved classic games to modern systems. Many people were quick to notice the 3D platformer Tak and the Power of Juju on that list. If you were growing up in the early 2000s, you likely remember the game from its heavy marketing on Nickelodeon. If you played the game like myself, you'll remember a quirky adventure game that was full of great voice talents, fun level design, and tons of collectibles.

This series needs to see a proper reboot. Head inside to find out why.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the highest-rated games of 2017, a decorated winner of numerous Game of the Year Awards, and is already one of the top-selling games in Zelda history.
