The Toad Song by Diwa De Leon

Diwa De Leon is back with a Beatles inspired song about Toad. I guess he’s pretty hyped for Captain Toad, but then again, so am I.   If you like Diwa’s songs, you can buy some either through iTunes our Loudr .

Assassin’s Creed Unity Rap by Dan Bull

I somehow think that the actual game will have just as much gratuitous French as this rap. I feel like I haven’t shared a Dan Bull rap in a while, so it’s about time I get back on that. For some reason though, after hearing this, I would really like Dan to write his version …

Everything Wrong with Thief in 15 Minutes – Awkward Cuts and Minor Plot Holes

Even though these videos are meant to point out the flaws and inconsistencies of these games and yet it is successfully making me want to play it.   Also, Deus Ex: Human Revolution does not start with narration.

They’re all done by DeviantArt user Darling Army, aka Amanda Marin. These ones are just the ones I really liked and based off video games …

What Could Have Been – Unused Content for Team Fortress 2

It seems like the designers for Team Fortress 2 have a lot of fun when coming up with new ideas. That’s usually how broken or implausible things get into games such as these. Sadly I don’t play enough Team Fortress 2 to really comment much further.

Generations – Ocarina of Time’s “Forest Temple” Vocal Arrangement by Jillian Aversa

This is pretty amazing. I love the kind of Celtic chant vibe the lyrics were going for and it was perfect for retaining the subtle eeriness that the Forest Temple has. The video is a little weird but sometimes weird is very good.   Jillian Aversa, by the way, is a vocalist and composer who …

Reality Check – More PC GFX Explanations

Some more cool graphics stuff that I somewhat know about but usually don’t pay that much attention to. There is an art though, in getting hair right in a video game, I think. Like how a painter trying to capture the life like qualities of a person or a bowl of fruit, the programmer trying …

The Princesses (and Goddess) of Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros.

The ladies of Super Smash Bros. and Hyrule Warriors are definitely taking the spotlight this time around. I’m interested in playing as all of them and it seems like other people might hold that same sentiment, such as DeviantArt user Bellhenge who has some lovely painted portraits of Princess Zelda and Agitha featured in Hyrule …

Sonic Adventure 2′s “City Escape” Jazz Cover by Insaneintherainmusic Feat. Sab Irene

It’s really cool to hear this song slowed down. I love listening to this jazz version of the main theme from Sonic Heroes and wish they would have given that treatment to a lot more songs from Sonic games. I guess that’s why we have the awesome talent of Insaneintherainmusic featuring the lovely vocals of …

Popmatters: “The Assassins’ Propaganda” by Nick Dinicola

An interesting article by Nick Dinicola analyzing the world and themes of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.   I’m not big on Assassin’s Creed, only having played the third one but this look at propaganda and the way that message are constructed and transmitted to us seems like a pretty cool topic to explore. When …

Dante’s Redemption – A Short Animations by Tel Peleg

Dante’s Redemption – Official Fan Fiction Short from Tal Peleg on Vimeo. I’m not really a big fan of the game Dante’s Inferno. Mostly because I love the poem from which is very loosely based on. That doesn’t mean though that it’s not impressive that all this animation was done by one guy, as opposed …
