Pach-Attack! The last Pach attack of the year. Let’s see what he has to say. 1) Gabe Newell and Windows 8 Windows 8 the death of PC gaming? I hope this is some sort of unfunny exaggeration because I honestly don’t see why Microsoft would make an OS that hurts PC gaming. In fact it …

Did You Know Even More About Pokemon

Here it is. The end of the year. So let’s get this party started with some more Pokemon trivia. So a lot of this stuff I already knew, but the theory of Magikarp originally evolving into Dragonite is interesting. I do think however that it is correct for the same reasons stated in the video. …

I don’t know what they are saying (mostly) but man as a fellow Nintendo fan, I can feel what they mean. At least I hope so… But yeah, definitely feel the Nintendo love coming from this video, which I only found thanks to this wonderful .gif that sums up my feelings about the world really.

Question: Top Games of 2012 (Video from Rerez)

A Battlefield 3 Deathrace by Mr Kees de Koning

Battlefield 3 is really pretty. This race is very cool, if maybe a bit too dramatic (the music, while epic, is kind of overbearing). I think one of the cool things about Battlefield 3 is that it’s so open and give so many options that seeing awesome stuff like this isn’t to uncommon. Epic car …

Brentalfloss – Baby Mario and Papa Yoshi

Brentalfloss rolls out another collaboration project, this time an animation based on the really, really good platformer, Yoshi’s Island. I really like the videos take on the Mario/Yoshi relationship. I was half-expecting Mario to abandon Yoshi at the end, but it instead went for a happy ending. It’s actually kinda weird to think that Yoshi …
