Pokemon’s “Team Rocket Hideout” by FamilyJules7x

So this song has always been kind of horrible but also kind of awesome. Made even better when played on guitar by FamilyJules7x.

Exploring the Lo-Fi Style of Aliens: Isolation

Check out some of the pure artistry that goes into making some games. While generally things like rain hitting a “camera” bug me, for something that is trying to catch the aesthetic of a film from a certain era, I have no problem with and this, recording footage on VHS tapes and then recording a …

Super Mario Bros. Theme, Wine Glasses and Frying Pan Version, perf. by Dan Newbie

I kinda burned myself out on the writing for today. So here’s a cool rendition of the Mario Bros. Theme played on wine glasses and a frying pan.

Idea Channel: “Did How I Met Your Mother Earn Its Ending?”

A little off-topic but in relation to the last post I think relevant.   For a while now I’ve believed that to make a good game you need to be an incredibly generous and sympathetic person because ultimately, you make games for people to play them. You need to understand how people work so that …

Metroid Medley by Epic Game Music

I can never get enough of classic Metroid music. Especially when compiled together in a cool medley like this.

The Point – Gaming Through Your Stress

This was kind of a touching episode because I know I can relate. After my grandma’s funeral I got home and continued playing Metroid: Other M, which I like so it kind of let me just escape into this other world and enjoy this story that I did not have to relate to my own …

Super Smash Bros. Melee’s “Menu 1″ A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

Ah Melee. Now I may be one of those weirdos who likes Brawl a bit more, but Melee is pretty much my childhood so hearing this wonderful rendition of the menu music brings a lot of memories back.

Reality Check: Are MMOs Bad For You?

I’m not into MMOs but for all the positive reasons mentioned in this video I want to be. I am in love with the idea of an MMO but there are too many barriers for me right now really get into them. The first being that many of the popular MMOs are based around a …

The Making of Infamous: Second Son’s 2D Cinematics

This is pretty cool, and plays into the tagging theme Second Son seems to have. I haven’t played this game so I don’t know if they used a computer to mimic some of those effects done with the vacuum cleaner or if that was it, but either way, I think that’s pretty clever.

Animal Crossing’s “KK Cruisin” Band Cover Arranged by Zorsy

I wish this was released on Saturday night, but doesn’t change the fact that it’s still pretty cool. Seriously would love to listen to this in a cool club type setting. I know I keep saying that but that’s because I’m sure if I keep wishing for it, it will come true.

“Mario is Destroying My House” by Jhoofnail

More evidence that Nintendo should maybe capitalize on an AR Mario game. I’m not quite sure how they would do it, but they should figure it out.

“Back to Tamriel” by Harry Partridge

Harry Partidge is back with another Elder Scrolls songs and holy crap, this is definitely making me want the game. Even the weird rap part.   Come to think of it, his first Skyrim song may have been what finally convinced me to get Skyrim….but I did not like what I saw in the Elder …

PBS Game/Show: What are the Worst Video Games Ever? – Be Warned, I Didn’t Like This Episode

So…this is the worst episode of PBS Game/Show so far. Which is unfortunate because I completely agree with a statement made in the video that we need to learn from the failings of others. However, this time Jamin Warren really dropped the ball when it came to dissecting what makes games bad and instead just …

Did You Know Voice Acting Webseries by Christopher Niosi

The world of video game voice acting I understand is big in some circles but has always remained kind of a mystery to me. I once had some interest in it but a difficult to work with voice director for a fan project eventually turned me away. Still, I have a lot of appreciation for …
