Today marks yet another milestone for the Android console Ouya, following the announcement of it’s partnership with OnLive. For those unfamiliar with OnLive, it’s essentially a way to stream full games from major publishers without the need for a powerhouse machine. All the graphics processing is done via an internet connection and you simply stream the content to your device, in this case the Ouya. This completely disregards all the negative comments from critics about the lack of first party games with the systems release.

A little over a week ago we featured a game called Slender. We found it to be absolutely and completely terrifying. Just uttering it’s name seems to bring a chill to the air around you. Well the internet seems to be in love with this game and a small community of modders announced their plans to release an updated version of Slender, called Slender: Source.

Do you like Pokemon? Do you like outer space? Do you like Facebook games?

You learn new moves and skills and your pet can even evolve into a more powerful version of itself. Sound familiar anyone?
