Ni No Kuni’s “Main Theme” perf. by the Videri String Quartet

You can chalk Ni No Kuni as another game on my ever expanding list of games that I need to play someday, but at least now I can say I like the main theme. Thank you Videri String Quartet.

A Ghostly Gallery of Pokemon by sido魂

So as lot of my friends probably know, my favorite Pokemon type is ghost. There really are a lot of cool ones and based on what I’ve been seeing around lately, I’m not alone. Take Pivx user sido魂 who apparently likes them just as much as I do. Now since it’s Pivx, I didn’t actually …

The Plunge: Kim Kardashian Hollywood Game

Kim-Kardashian-Hollywood

Yes, I decided to postpone living a healthier life, feeding the homeless, and saving animals from shelters to enter the world of a Kardashian — or a simulated one (minus Ray J). For those who don’t know/care, let me update you on the situation. That mobile game by the name of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is …

Design Club: Portal and Tutorials Mechanics

I feel like there are some people out there who truly believe that tutorials are bad things. Like, the player should just wade through the near infinite combinations of buttons and mechanics to figure out how to progress. I know of one in particular who seems to believe that areas meant to teach, reinforce, or …

My Date With Captain Falcon (Feat. Markiplier & Nikasaur) by RandomEncounters

If Super Smash Bros. has taught me anything is that Captain Falcon is one weird dude. He actually kind of reminds me of Gaston in this video. Except with a mariachi band.

Cracked: The 5 Hardest Things to Explain About ‘Watch Dogs’

The real world potential of hacking has kinda been proven to a lot cooler and scarier than Watch Dogs. As the video pointed out the entire idea of hacking a city with a device that requires physical line of sight seems kind of contradictory. Also apparently some of the mechanics in the game just don’t …

PBS Game/Show: Why Do People Do Sick and Twisted Things in DayZ?

I never thought that comparing people in video games to things like the Milligram Experiment. It’s a little disheartening to know that just when you think humanity might naturally be inclined to good, they turn around and are just jerks to each other.   Something to really pay attention to though is the “Proteus Effect”, …

Pokemon Electric is Definitely Not Team Rocket

If only Pokemon were real. I suppose I could do without Team Rocket, but still, imagine how easier our lives would be if Pokemon generated our electricity and and huge lumbering Pokemon helped with construction. As long as it wasn’t pure enslavement then I think that would be pretty cool.

Donkey Kong Country’s “Jungle Groove” perf. by Music by Pedro

A good way to wind down after another work week.

Idea Channel: Could Sports Ever Replace War?

So not related to video games but I think an interesting idea to think about. And uh….Mike says “War, war never changes” from Fallout.   I think it’s an interesting thing to think about simply because games are becoming a rising e-sport and the alternate universe in which sports could be used to replace war …

JonTron Looks at….Titenic?

I wonder how one would go about and make a game based off the Titanic. Obviously most of the games JonTron looks at wouldn’t really work because they aren’t anything like the movie and feature platforming and fighting and things that you just wouldn’t expect from a game based on the Titanic or even the …

Fact Surgery – The Wii U

This fact surgery about the Wii U seemed rather short. Then I remembered that the others talked about sales figures. Thank you Vsauce for omitting just how not well the Wii U has sold and hopefully a video like this can be remade some day with some numbers to boast about.

“A Tomodachi Life” by Ryan Craddock

Well this is the most commercially sounding song I’ve ever heard, but I do think it’s catchy.

Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie – Official Trailer #2

Boy does this movie keep getting crazier and crazier. I’m insanely jealous of anyone who can manage to go to any of the theater showings, especially if James Rolfe is there. I’m most likely going to have to wait until September 2nd to finally watch it.

On the Growing Usage of Graphic Violence in Video Games

A great article on Polygon by Chris Plante that discusses his growing uneasiness with the use of graphic violence in game marketing.   While I think Assassin’s Creed Unity might have been a pretty tame example, the in-general over use of graphic violence is something that has been making me rather uncomfortable. The strange thing …
