Final Fantasy VII’s “Jenova” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

  I may not be a big Final Fantasy VII fan, but even I can appreciate just how good the music sometimes is. Especially when Epic Game Music is behind the guitar.

“Spinnin’ Round That Base” – A Parody of “All About That Bass” by Nathan Smith

  This is silly. A good silly, but silly nonetheless.

The Gist – 3 Great Kickster Games That You Can Play Right Now

  I’ve played two of these games but I would also recommend Broken Age and Faster Than Light. I like Broken Age a bit more because Faster Than Light is so random that it can get downright frustrating but both games are amazing fun in their own way. I keep hearing good things about the …

Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s “Icarus” perf. by Songs of Adventure

  Well it’s not too often that I get to hear a Deus Ex: Human Revolution cover. This was actually pretty amazing managing to perfectly recreate the track from the game but also moving it away from just being ambient and making it more present.   This song was performed by Caitlin and Vaughan who …

8 Examples of Video Game Lawsuits That, Well, Backfired

  These certainly are some silly examples of why a game would be sued. My particular favorite was Universal finding themselves violating Nintendo’s copyright over the word “Kong”. While these are silly lawsuits that are notable for how badly they backfired, I think it’s always important to remind people that not every video game is …

Jason Paul Freeruns Through a Real Life Sidescroller.

  A real-life side scrolling platformer? Awesome! There are just simply no words to describe how much fun watching this was. Plus, performing on a moving train really was the best detail for me. It looked just like the kind of parallax scrolling you would find in a Sonic the Hedgehog game.

Inspiration and Easter Eggs – Did You Know Gaming: Mass Effect

  Some really interesting tidbits and trivia here about the Mass Effect series. It’s pretty cool how the alien races all had some animal or folklore related inspirations. Except for that race of all women. I wonder what everyone was like when that was brought up.   “Yes so we have this race inspired by …

Tough Choices Makes Satisfying Endings – Really Freakin’ Clever Looks at Mass Effect 2

I’m not entirely sure how “clever” this is, but it’s definitely good game design and good use of a narrative to influence the emotions of the player. Maybe it’s something that you have to experience for yourself, since I’ve yet to play any game in the Mass Effect trilogy (I know, shame on me). After …

SimCity 2000’s “Serious Sims” EWI Cover by Peter Anthony Smith (With Trivia!)

  Music and trivia all in one? What a great combination! SimCity I feel is a not a game that gets too many of its songs covered, so it’s a good thing that Peter Anthony Smith and his trusty EWI is here to provide a pretty faithful sounding recreation.

A Link to the Past Brought to Animated Life in Episode 1 of Zeldamotion

Remember that trailer for a Link to the Past fan-animation project? Maybe not because that was quite a while ago. Well, it looks like it’s finally happening and it has left a very good impression on me. The voice acting was pretty good, though I will never get use to a voice actually coming out …

Ace Attorney’s “Cornered” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by James Ronald

  So personally I think this is the most iconic song in the Ace Attorney games and James Ronald has found a way to make it much more epic.

The Rise and Fall of Mario and the Brick Breakers – A Behind the Music Style Parody of Mario and Friends

  I don’t think I ever would have imagined a Behind the Music type video featuring the Mario characters as a rock band would have ever been a thing. And here it is. It’s surprisingly really good too, I wasn’t expecting to sit down and watch it all the way but I did. I love …

Pokemon X/Y’s “Lumiose City” Alto and Soprano Saxaphone Cover perf. by Sab Irene

  Listening to this saxaphone cover of Lumiose City from Pokemon X/Y by Sab Irene it makes me yearn to here some small band covers of Pokemon music live.   You can fine more of Sab’s music over on her Soundcloud.

Who Needs Sports When We Have Video Games? – Cracked.Com

  This video got a little existential. Seriously, I think Cracked puts up a pretty good argument for why we should just phase out real sports and replace it with video game sports. No one gets hurt, the audience gets the same pleasure out of it. It’s probably cheaper too. Just something to think about.

Final Fantasy VII’s “One-Winged Angel” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

  Smooth McGroove returns with one of his most impressive A Capella performances yet. One-Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII is probably the most famous final boss theme in gaming history and for good reason. As someone who is not that big of a Final Fantasy fan (especially VII) even I love this theme.   …
