  A very serious and in-depth look at the historical influences of Tropico 5 with Dr. Renata Keller of Boston University on this episode of History Respawned.

Mario Kart 8 WITH LYRICS BY brentalfloss (Strong Language)

  Somehow in all the zaniness that is Mario Kart 8, brentalfloss manages to hone in on one that I’m sure too many people had really thought about. The race track is too dangerous for babies…why does Nintendo keep adding more?

Yooka-Laylee in “Snakey Dealings” – A Fan Animation Created by Jan Animations

  I don’t think I’ve ever seen as much love for a game that hasn’t even been released yet than I have seen for Yooka-Laylee. Then again, when it’s made by the creators of the beloved Banjo-Kazooie and it a revival of the collectathon genre, I couldn’t blame anyone.   This video was published by …
