Skyrim feels the wrath of Conan O'Brien and Mr. Buttons

A month ago, talk show host Conan O'Brien decided to throw his hat in the game reviewers' ring with a new web series called Clueless Gamer. After ripping apart Michael Phelps: Push The Limit, he has ticked Kinect Star Wars a...

Well, happy Bungie Day everyone! On the seventh day of every July, Bungie fans impatiently wait for cryptic messages of upcoming projects that Bungie happens to be working on at the time. This year's most exciting Bungie Day announcement didn't come from the legendary game studio, but from Sir Paul McCartney himself. Announced through his official Facebook page earlier this morning, he stated that he's "really excited to be working on writing music with Bungie, the studio that made Halo."

A photo from Abbey Road Studios taken back in May surfaced this morning that showed Martin O'Donnell collaborating with Paul in the same studio where all The Beatles records were put down on tape. I can't explain my jealousy. It's not clear if this is just new music in general, or music that will be used in Bungie's upcoming unannounced project. We heard way back in January that McCartney was working on videogame music, so could this be what he was talking about?

I truly hope it's music for the rumored Marathon reboot/sequel. I would probably explode with excitement.

This is why Conan O'Brien is the best game reviewer

On Thursday, Team Coco kicked off a new web series called Clueless Gamer, in which Conan O'Brien tries (and fails) to play a videogame then assigns a review score. And unlike The Tommy Wi-Show, it won't make you feel like yo...

Aisha Tyler combats 'illiterate and racist' gamer attacks

Aisha Tyler hosted Ubisoft's E3 press conference this year and, in all fairness, continued the publisher's tradition of inflicting a cavalcade of embarrassing jokes upon a cringing audience. Backlash was inevitable, and Ms. T...

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

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...

Christopher Walken, master of the 'Let's Play'

Oooooohh! Regular Show's J.G. Quintel and I talk games photo
Oooooohh! Regular Show's J.G. Quintel and I talk games
by Tony Ponce

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 references towards the medium, Regular Show recognizes that games have long been cultural artifacts that deserve just as much respect as film or music. In other words, the show "gets it."

Regular Show is easily one of my favorite TV programs, so you can imagine how excited I was to be given the opportunity to interview series creator J.G. Quintel. He explained how influential gaming was to him during his youth as well as how important it was for that influence to be reflected as accurately as possible within the show. He also talks about his being the only family in the neighborhood with a Sega Master System and how his dream Regular Show videogame would play like ToeJam & Earl.

The interview was conducted by telephone on March 21, but rather than leave you guys with a simple mp3 of the conversation, I decided to turn it into an extremely ghetto, 20-minute slideshow. I apologize if the audio is difficult to make out, especially during the times when I talk over J.G. like a total ass. Since our incoherent mumblings may be too much to handle, I've transcribed of few choice highlights past the break for your benefit.
