'Ori and the Blind Forest' Will Melt Your Heart and Your Thumbs — The first thing that strikes you about Ori and the Blind Forest is the gorgeous atmosphere. The dark, natural whimsy evokes a Miyazaki film, and the physics of flowing water and swaying trees alone were enough to pique my attention. But playing through two sections of a preview build brought this game's rich mechanics and difficulty to the fore.

It's Sarcasm, Charlie Brown: 'The Great Pumpkin' Meets RiffTrax — The 1966 Peanuts Halloween classic It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown probably gives you the warm fuzzies every year, but it's not exactly LOL. We've remedied this by teaming up with RiffTrax (the writers and performers of Mystery Science Theater 3000) to turn up the sarcasm on this beloved film.

If 'Portal' and 'Mirror's Edge' Had a Baby, It Would Be This Free Game — Refunktion is a free indie game developed in just three months. And while there's not a ton of content here, it's extremely stylish, polished and challenging. Take a look at the video above for our first impressions. What to Play is a weekly show where Mashable writers kick the tires of promising new video games and let you decide if they're worth playing.

'Secrets of Grindea' Will Satisfy Your Old-School RPG Cravings — Secrets of Grindea is a 2D action RPG, reminiscent of Super Nintendo classics like Secret of Mana and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. But its endearing pixel art style belies a deep skill and talent system that forces you to make hard choices between specialization and balance.

God Just Trolled the Westboro Baptist Church So Hard — A new billboard was unveiled in Topeka, Kansas on Monday. The advertiser? God. The Facebook God, a page with 1.7 million likes, has been antagonizing the religious right since 2011 with snark, memes and commandments to His followers.

John Oliver and Cookie Monster Deliver the Last Word on News — You might know John Oliver as the dapper British gent speaking truth to power every Sunday on Last Week Tonight . But did you know he also co-anchors a nightly news broadcast about words with Cookie Monster? Just kidding, that's not a thing. But you would totally watch that show.

What Not to Do In Your Online Dating Profile Pic — Grainy webcam pics in a messy room? Bathroom ab selfies? Grinning with babies or other women? Come on, guys, we can do better. Elliott Morgan breaks down the do's and don'ts of online dating photos in this morning's #MashableMinute. Subscribe to Mashable on YouTube and never miss a minute!

14 Video Games That Changed My Life — I was at a friend's house when the phone rang. It was mom. She got a Nintendo. I rushed back to find Super Mario Bros. on the living room TV. Video games had arrived in our home.

Topless Woman Covers Herself With 12,000 Bees — Performance artist Sara Mapelli uses pheromones to attract 12,000 to her naked body in the hope of getting people to think more about the natural world. Lamarr Wilson has some concerns in this week's episode of Socially Awkward. Mainly, NOPE! If you dig this show, check out the other videos on the Socially Awkward channel.
