Remember way back in 2013 when PewDiePie was the $4-million-a-year king of YouTube?

How quaint.

YouTube's most popular star earned $7 million from his company last year, according to Swedish newspaper Expressen. That number is based off filings with the government there, according to the paper.

The paper didn't get comment from Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg, 25; but last year, PewDiePie spoke with the Wall Street Journal at length.

In that story, he talked about how his regular shows...

Dark Souls Player Is Trying to Beat the Game Upside-Down

Dark Souls is a pretty difficult game, but it was inevitable that players would find ways to make it even more challenging. One player has even decided to play the game upside-down.

You read that right. Streamer LobosJR is utilizing a simple mod to flip the screen, which effectively flips controls, as well. He's gotten through a significant portion of the game, beating several bosses who give most players a lot of trouble when the screen is normal.

It's impressive to get through Dark Souls...

My colleagues at Jalopnik weren’t having it. They eventually convinced me to try driving again, and you can see how it went in their story.

The Simpsons won't lose Flanders, Smithers, and Mr. Burns' voice actor next season after all

Reports that Harry Shearer would be leaving the cast of The Simpsons at the end of the show's 26th season appear to have been greatly exaggerated.

Well, either that or the actor knew exactly what he was doing when he made sure to announce his exit from the show on Twitter in May. At the time, he seemed to attribute his break with the show to his desire to retain "the freedom to do other work," though remained vague on the details.
