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...

Hotline Miami co-creator got badass ink of his own game

The first time I met Dennis Wedin, co-creator of Hotline Miami, I could not stop looking at his arms. His body is adorned by awesome unique tattoos, and his latest piece takes the cake. Dennis got a new tattoo on his chest ba...

Here's the guy to thank for some of the best new Pokemon

This was too neat not to share. The artist behind Mega Man Megamix, Hitoshi Ariga, contributed designs to Pokemon X and Y. And, looking at the list of Pokemon he worked on, I think it's safe to say he had a substantial impact...

Check out these crazy comics from Dtoider BeatBeat

Dtoid Cblogger BeatBeat has been creating awesome art for the community for a while now -- including this piece inspired by an episode of Communitoid -- but his latest efforts really take the cake. I'm not even going to spoil...

Hideo Kojima asked for it and he has received photo
Hideo Kojima asked for it and he has received
by Wesley Ruscher

Back in September, Hideo Kojima tweeted that he was making Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Quiet "more erotic" to entice cosplay. He shared designs of the character's backside and almost seemed to taunt would-be cosplayers with claims that it may be too hard to pull off

Well meet cosplayer and UK Dtoider, Kelly Jean's take on the silent, but deadly sniper. As a big fan of the Metal Gear series -- just check out her fantastic EVA cosplay -- Jean wanted to take on the challenge of recreating the accuracy of an actual video game render. 

"I only know limited amounts about Quiet, as we all do, but since I am a fan of the franchise it's going to take quite a lot to disappoint me. Though I do hope she gets some trousers, she makes me feel pretty cold," Jean said.

Shot in a studio, to get the lighting right, and with some minimal editing Jean's creation of Quiet is eerily spot on, all the way down to the exact hand placements from the MGS V still. The costume came from mostly modified combat gear and has even caught the attention of Kojima himself

With Christmas right around the corner, Jean will also be selling prints of her 'Quiet' cosplay to raise money for Special Effect. All profits will go to the charity, which specializes in bringing the joy of gaming to those with disabilities. 

"I am currently in training to be a health care assistant and care worker. The girl I'm soon to be helping out is really bright and enjoys her games, but has severe physical disabilities, so I'm really passionate about this cause," Jean said.

You have something in your eye, Dr. Robotnik

Oh yeah, we just found your new wallpaper thanks to Ian Wilding. Dr. Robotnik looks quite menacing here, if not a little annoyed thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog. What's that? You don't see Sonic? Look closer. Closer! Ian's art h...

The Pokemon creation process sounds brutal

Speaking to Gamasutra, Game Freak designer Hironobu Yoshida has given insight into the Pokemon creation process. As we approach the 700s on the Pokedex with Pokemon X and Y, one can only imagine how much of a challenge it is ...

Peach mourns Mario in this styrofoam chainsaw sculpture

In videogames, and Mario games especially, we rarely think of death in the same way we would in a real world context. Touching goombas may be hazardous to an Italian plumber's health, but even after all lives are lost and the...
