Your Favorite Martian: Somebody That I Used to Know Cover (With Mario and Zelda characters)

Your Favorite Martian is one of those bands, for me at least, where I can’t say that I like them, but I always listen to their stuff when I find them. I dunno why. It’s not terrible, and I don’t think it’s the art. It’ just something. Anyways, so this here cover has a Mario …

AriaBlarg Paints! Wind Waker Speed Painting

This is turning into an unofficial The Legend of Zelda day for Extra Credit, because I just found a treasure trove of cool Zelda fan stuff. Like this for instance, a speed painting of the King of Red Lions and Link from Wind Waker. Speed paintings are actually really interesting, I’ve only watched one before …

Vacationing Without the Consoles/PC

Have you ever traveled somewhere, say Hawaii, with your family for a peaceful vacation yet someone insists on bringing a little piece of home along for the ride, like the Xbox or PS3? “It’s so the kids don’t get bored,” you or your parents would say. And when you’re setup in your temporary home, rather …

The Magical Kingdom of Zeal: Wind Waker Style

Hey listen! Do you like Chrono Trigger? Do you like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker? Would you like them together!?! Well, that’s what one fan thought who took one of the settings in the awesome RPG Chrono Trigger and recreated it in the Unreal Engine to look like it came straight out of Wind …

Among the Sleep Trailer

When I see a game like this, I don’t imagine that it is a game where you play a toddler, I imagine it as a game where you play as yourself in a toddler’s body, which is by far much scarier. Because unlike a toddler, you know what everything in the world is. You don’t …

Leeroy Jenkins Meme Inspired Heist Film

Can anyone own a meme? I mean, if someone wanted to turn something like this into a full feature length movie, could they? Also, this reminds me of a book I read in middle school, where it was written in a very standard medieval knight story style, but it was inspired by an actual chess …

FamilyJules7x: Star Wolf Cover

I don’t think I can tell you guys how much I love Star Wolf’s theme. Even on the N64, when I first encountered it, it was among the first songs I started humming in my head all the time and when it was re-imagined in Star Fox Assault, I melted. Now there’s this wicked metal …

8 Bit Openings: Mega Man Cartoon

Ever wondered what it would look like if the old, cheesy Megaman cartoon made it’s way into the actual games? Well, here’s what the opening would look like.

Cinemassacre: Top 10 Obscure NES Gems

It sucks that only some games get all the praise while some games become unappreciated classics. Even in the modern day, a lot of great games don’t get the recognition they deserve. Maybe I should do a video or article about 10 obscure modern games?

Nightmare Mode: That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore

Here’s an article from Nightmare Mode about how video games are funniest when they allow the player to participate in the comedy.   Check it out and come back for my response.   So, I actually strongly disagree with this article and I don’t believe that relationship between comedy and video games is different than …

Havok on Wii U

This is something interesting and it’s getting me really excited for the Wii U, since what is shown in this video is most likely what is going to run on the Wii U, at least according to this article. It also allows for easy ports of PS3 and 360 games onto the Wii U, which …

The Turntable Turnabout (Mystery Skulls – Money)

What I think I appreciate about this video is that the animation is so well-done and like the sprites in the game. The animator could have just used and edited the sprites in the game ala Phoenix Wrong, but instead he animated the whole thing and the feel of the video is just made more …

Dovahbear

Supposedly there is an “original” that makes this who video of a bear that has taken up the role of Dovahkhin make sense. But why does it need that? What about this doesn’t make sense?

The Joy of Watching Grass Render

Outterra is a project that I’ve mentioned before, striving to make a huge, planet size game world that doesn’t sacrifice the graphics. And now I’ve also discovered that they have a blog!

Remember the Veterans with the Ending to Call of Duty World at War

Something I appreciated about the World War 2 video games that everyone grew sick of, was the developers never lost the seriousness and the gravity of the subject matter they were dealing with. This ending left me silent for the longest time, the number of lives lost just had to sink in for a second. …
