More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...

Leave None Behind wants to celebrate many forms of art

At first glance, Leave None Behind might not seem like an entirely new idea. It aims to be a puzzle platformer, featuring three characters with distinct abilities that the player can switch between in order to progress, a la...

Farts 'N' Crafts: Batman's Giant Robot
by Max Scoville

Hey everybody! Here's the second episode of Farts 'N' Crafts, the show where I draw pictures of stuff related to what's going on in gaming. Today, there's a lot of buzz about a new Batman game from Rocksteady, and Titanfall continues to be great, as demonstrated by this adorable trailer and these leaked maps and screenshots, which reveal that there are alien dinosaurs in the game. Aren't video games grand?

Farts N Crafts: Duke Nukem's Turdy Dogfight
by Max Scoville



Following up Friday's debut of "Dumb Idiot Ideas," here's the first episode of another weekly series: "Farts 'N' Crafts."

On this show, I draw horrible pictures of things vaguely related to what's going on in the world of video games. Today's subject is the recent news of Gearbox Software's lawsuit against Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms over Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, but more specifically on a comment made by Destructoid community member Red Morgan.

Got ideas for another stupid thing for me to draw? Leave it in the comments.

The new female Orc for WoW puts the old design to shame

I may not play World of Warcraft but as someone who occasionally writes about it and, as a result, has to find not-terrible-looking images to accompany my words, I'm all for a good character model redesign. Blizzard has share...

Mario and friends get a Sonic Boom redesign too

Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Dr. Eggman all just got a major redesign for the new Sonic Boom game. It sure is ... something. Artist Andrew Dickman imagines what Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach would look like if they got the same redesign treatment too. There's been some hilarious reactions to what Sega has done with the Sonic franchise all over the net. Post your favorites in the comments below.

Life-sized papercraft Mass Effect characters creep me out

Papercraft is cool. Giant, human-sized papercraft, on the other hand, gives me the heebie-jeebies. That said, DeviantArt member Tankball has crafted two eerily realistic papercraft recreations of Mass Effect 3 characters...
