If you're unfamiliar with Taiwan No. 1, here's the quick and dirty version: back in July of 2015, YouTuber ANGRYPUG was streaming H1Z1 and decided to troll a Chinese player by yelling "Taiwan number one" at him. The guy didn't take it well, and a meme was born. Watch the interaction for yourself below (action starts at 2:00, beware of naughty language):



Given the tumultuous relationship between China and Taiwan, Pug's video has become incredibly popular in Taiwan, elevating him to celebrity status there. He recently attended the Taipei Game Show, where people were lining up to take a picture with him and get his autograph.



Sometimes the internet is beautiful.

Nine-year-old Scott Lundy was so excited to receive a PS4 this christmas until he opened the box and found a wooden replica of the system placed there by thieves. To add insult to injury, they included a "crude drawing of male genitals" (missed opportunity for a dickbutt) on the wood and a message that said "from cock and balls with love."



Scott's parents were able to return the console to Target and get a replacement, but Scott's faith in Santa Claus is shaken. I guess Call of Duty: Black Ops III and The Uncharted Collection will be there to carry him through this difficult time.

Dude, really?

A Siberian man apparently lost his job, his friends, and his wife after playing Fallout 4 for three weeks straight, and now he wants $7,000 for "emotional distress" from Bethesda and the game's Russian localization firm. Sigh.

The man claims he had no idea how addictive and all-encompassing Fallout could be, saying, "If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it. I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays." His addiction supposedly also caused him physical duress, as he was not eating or sleeping regularly during his Fallout binge. The case has not yet made it to court, but the man has secured a lawyer willing to take it on.

Japan's Nikkei Newspaper is reporting that Hideo Kojima's days at Konami are finally done, so we can all be free from the emotional roller coaster that has been rumors of his departure from the game company.

After countless reports of mistreatment, weird branding moves that minimized Kojima's involvement in his own series, and that one time Konami tried to pretend he was just on vacation, it looks like Kojima's really left Konami, and he's starting his own company!

From Nikkei, translated by NeoGAF user Zefah:

Kojima Hideo, a famous video game creator known for the Metal Gear series has left Konami Digital Entertainment as of December 15th. He will form a new company where he will continue developing video games, with plans to release on platforms such as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE)'s PlayStation. He is forming the new company with people who worked under him at Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear series, for which he is most known, remain at Konami, so he will begin working on an all new title. Final negotiations with SCE are underway for this new game to debut on PlayStation.


I for one can't wait to see what he does with a new series. What about you?
