You could win $700 if you help out with the Simpsons: Hit & Run speedrunning community

Money can be exchanged for goods and services

Speedrunners are constantly looking for ways to get through a game faster, and the gang taking on Simpsons: Hit & Run has hit a rather nasty speedbump. In order to buy all the vehicles and outfits needed to complete the game, you'll have to gather 14,500 coins. As of right now, there's no quick way to do that. Speedrunners spend roughly 20 minutes grinding out coins to use later in the run, and they're tired of it! That's why a reward is being offered to someone who can help.

Think you can find a way for speedrunners to skip all this grinding? Can you come up with an alternate route, glitch, or trick to skip over the coin collecting? If so, you might want to get in touch with the team behind the video above. They're offering $700 to whoever can fix their speedrunning issue, as they can't find a solution on their own. Best of luck to anyone who gives it a go!

The Simpsons: Hit & Run producer is up for a remake/remaster

Now with a new hat!

The Simpsons: Hit and Run was one of the few licensed Simpsons games that was actually a fun experience, and did a lot with the license. Many players have fond memories of the game, and would love an excuse to revisit it on today's platforms. Could a remake or remaster ever happen? In an interview with the Lad Bible, producer Vlad Ceraldi says he'd be up for it.

"I could see it on multiple different types of platforms as a remake or remaster. It would have to take the parties who are in charge of the property to want that to happen and someone out there to decide that they were going to go out and do it. But absolutely, it would be fun to explore those characters and that universe again, that work again."

Smash Bros. tournament to provide therapy dogs to help players dealing with performance anxiety

Heavy petting

An upcoming Smash Bros. tournament is going to be adding in therapy dogs for players to utilize. These dogs will be on-hand for players to spend some time with both before and after their tournament action in order to ease any anxiety they have. All together, there will be 5 different dogs on-hand providing some escape for nervous players.
