Snoop Dogg's Tekken Tag 2 rap vid is so unnecessary


Jun 12

I still can't get over the fact that Snoop Dogg has a themed level in the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It is truly one of the most bizarre bits of news to come out of E3 2012. Aside from his claims that he's long been a...

Oooooohh! Regular Show's J.G. Quintel and I talk games

Apr 03 // Tony Ponce
00:27 -- Regular Show was green-lit as part of a push to "age up" Cartoon Network. 01:25 -- "2 in the AM PM," one of J.G.'s short films that served as prototypes for Regular Show, contains cursing and drug use. Yep, definitely child-safe material! 02:09 -- "Weekend at Benson's" is an episode that spoofs the 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie's, with the important distinction that Benson isn't actually dead. 04:00 -- J.G.'s first game console was the Sega Master System, while his friends all had an NES. 05:51 -- Several notable SMS games from J.G.'s youth include Double Dragon, Time Soldiers, Shinobi, Thunder Blade, Psycho Fox, R-Type, and Snail Maze, which was built into the machine and could be played when no cartridge was inserted. 08:12 -- So sad! J.G. is too busy with work to be able to play games anymore! 09:06 -- Other TV shows suck at demonstrating typical gamer posture and button-pressing. 10:55 -- In Regular Show, J.G. tries to demonstrate that videogames are the "equivalent of reading a book or watching a TV show," just as in reality. 13:20 -- For a proper Regular Show videogame, J.G. would either want a co-op brawler similar to old Konami arcade games or a chill, two-player, exploration-based title just like ToeJam & Earl. 16:25 -- "Video Game Wizards" is an episode that spoofs everyone's favorite movie / commercial, The Wizard, right down to the Power Glove. The episode first aired last week, so I obviously hadn't seen it when I conducted this interview. 18:39 -- Regular Show: The Slack Pack, which just came out today, is a compilation DVD that contains 12 staff- and audience-favorite episodes. 19:50 -- "Over the Top" is an episode that spoofs the Sylvester Stallone arm wrestling movie, Over the Top. It features one of the many deaths of Rigby throughout the series. 20:35 -- The world of Regular Show is caught in a time warp, where 80s culture reigns supreme but little bits from later decades manage to worm their way through.

Last February, I wrote an article about Cartoon Network's Regular Show and how it speaks to the 80s generation of gamers with genuine love and attention to detail. Whereas other shows make only cursory, often disparaging ref...

Nov 15

Okay, Nintendo. We get it. Robin Williams is a total videogame nerd who named his daughter after Princess Zelda. One thing, though... Zelda Williams isn't in this commercial!
