Five Nights at Freddy’s 3’s “Good Ending” Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

  Apparently Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 has multiple endings and the “good” ending can get pretty trippy. Don’t know how much of that is from the original and how much is Epic Game Music‘s own take and I don’t plan on finding out anytime soon. That game is too scary for me.

Is he complaining about game delays? Yeah they suck but it’s always been a reality of game development. Especially when studios want …

  GameSpot has the lowdown and the explosion of VR headsets that have emerged recently. As of this year, the market is getting extremely competitive and I am super excited for that.

Reality Check Looks at 3 Ways Science Can Give You Video Game Super Powers

  GameSpot‘s Reality Check looks at some pretty cool future technologies used by, or at least mimicking, super powers in video games. It all seems rather exciting if implausible, except for that Spider-Man climbing power.

5 Games Changed Due to Regional Licenses – VGFActs

  A lot of interesting tidbits about how different regions treat essentially the same game. It must have made working with licensed characters so much nicer and as long as you had a good game you could sell it to pretty much anyone. Could you imagine if the Batman: Arkham games had to rework their …

Super Mario Kart A Capella Cover perf. by Triforcefilms

  As always, Triforcefilms’s A Capella covers are super fun. I seriously want to see him (and probably some friends) live cover someone playing an old NES or SNES game.

The Wind Waker’s “Dragon Roost Island” Violin, Harp, and Guitar Cover perf. by Diwa De Leon and Joanne Moo

  This is one of my favorite songs from all of The Legend of Zelda. Just something about it has always resonated with me. I especially like the choice of having Diwa De Leon (String Player Gamer) on violin and Joanne Moo (Perovskite13) on harp. Not only does it lend itself to creating great music, …

PBS Game/Show Sets Its Sights on Why is Killing So Prominent in Games

  So, some interesting issues came up when watching this video. Mainly in how Jamin has decided to frame certain aspects of this question. Let’s break it down bit by bit.   So my first concern is his casual assertion that video games don’t make you as a person any more violent. Now, I’m speaking …
