A Burger King representative donated $5 repeatedly and advertised the restaurant on gamers' Twitch streams, in an apparent violation of FTC regulations. Now Ogilvy has posted an advertisement which recreates those events with faked stock footage.

Australian animator and gamer Ross O'Donovan (sometimes of the Game Grumps) discusses a strange and almost certainly illegal marketing scheme by Burger King and Ogilvy which targeted his stream (when he was designing Super Mario Maker 2 levels).

Hacks that translate Game Gear games to the larger screen of the Sega Master System are pretty common (as GG2SMS), and are sometimes an improvement. The Game Gear had a start button that the Master System does not, so this is sometimes mapped to controller 2, or a Genesis controller is recommended instead.

Here's a new demo for a Metal Gear-style game on the 1979 Mattel Intellivision (unusually with a multicolored sprite).

The Metal Gear-like Prisoner of War is also an available homebrew title on Colecovision and MSX.
