Reality Check – The Best and Worst Game Hacking

Whenever I think of hacking in any kind of popular media, I think of several cracked videos. Like this one. Or this one.   Personally, I think the hacking in Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the best I’ve seen. I agree with the video where real hacking would probably be way too boring for most …

Final Fantasy VII’s “Jenova” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

  I may not be a big Final Fantasy VII fan, but even I can appreciate just how good the music sometimes is. Especially when Epic Game Music is behind the guitar.

Squid Girls and Bug Princesses – Nintendo Fan Art by Stupjam

Nintendo games are weird. Where else are you going to find games where little squid people do battle with colored ink? Or where giant energy bugs overrun the battlefield? It’s made even more evident when looking at the fanart of DeviantArtist Stupjam. Just take a look at these pieces depicting characters from Splatoon and Hyrule …

Breaking Up (Midway) with Freemium Games

We’ve all done it before. Browsing through the local gaming store’s shelves and some fine game is staring straight at us, wanting us to take it home. And we did. Happily driving back to our place, dreaming about the things we were going to do tonight. Once we finished all the introductions, we got a …

Hot and Cold – Franziska (Ace Attorney) and Sumia (Fire Emblem) Cosplay by Calssara

The details some people put into cosplay can be absolutely ridiculous. Just take these two costumes done by DeviantArt user Calssara. Not only does she pull off two characters that couldn’t be more different, but it’s like they’ve just popped out of the game. The icing on the cake though has got to be the …

  This is silly. A good silly, but silly nonetheless.

An Old School Comic Style for an Old School Link by RSVA

Pixiv artist RVSA has a collection of A Link to the Past sketches that look like they come straight from an old school comic book. Take a look at these and if you love them you can either check out RVSA’s Pixiv or Flickr accounts.

The Path to Hope Lies in Magical Girls and Pokemon – An Artbook Collaboration Project

The Path to Hope is an interesting art collaboration project combining the magical girls from anime with Pokemon. I suppose it’s a way to show how different interests can so easily blend together. They have some preview images on The Path to Hope Tumblr,  so be sure to follow it if you like what you …

The Gist – 3 Great Kickster Games That You Can Play Right Now

  I’ve played two of these games but I would also recommend Broken Age and Faster Than Light. I like Broken Age a bit more because Faster Than Light is so random that it can get downright frustrating but both games are amazing fun in their own way. I keep hearing good things about the …

Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s “Icarus” perf. by Songs of Adventure

  Well it’s not too often that I get to hear a Deus Ex: Human Revolution cover. This was actually pretty amazing managing to perfectly recreate the track from the game but also moving it away from just being ambient and making it more present.   This song was performed by Caitlin and Vaughan who …

8 Examples of Video Game Lawsuits That, Well, Backfired

  These certainly are some silly examples of why a game would be sued. My particular favorite was Universal finding themselves violating Nintendo’s copyright over the word “Kong”. While these are silly lawsuits that are notable for how badly they backfired, I think it’s always important to remind people that not every video game is …

“And That’s Why You’re In!” – A Webcomic Strip Imagining The Origins of This Super Smash Fighter

Warning: The following comic contains spoilers for secret characters in Super Smash Bros. Don’t look at it if you want to and somehow have remained completely unaware of who is in the final roster.       ——————–   This is pretty touching comic by Brian (no last name given) who runs the Tumblr blog …

Jason Paul Freeruns Through a Real Life Sidescroller.

  A real-life side scrolling platformer? Awesome! There are just simply no words to describe how much fun watching this was. Plus, performing on a moving train really was the best detail for me. It looked just like the kind of parallax scrolling you would find in a Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Classic Book Covers for Classic Games From Gamertee

There is a certain aesthetic to those classic book covers that are definitely lost to our modern era. Even classic video games, or games that we at least consider classic, don’t have that same kind of “oldness” that I think draws some people towards collecting old books. That’s why these old book covers of some …

James Zapata Makes The Legend of Zelda Look Like Skyrim

I think people really want The Legend of Zelda to more like Skyrim. In fact, I know I’m expecting something similar to Skyrim with the next Zelda game but since we already know what the new art style is going to be like, it’s safe to say that it’s not going to look exactly like …
