LEGO The Last of Us should be a real thing

This video brightened my day in a huge way. It's an animator's idea of what The Last of Us franchise would look like if taken on by the Traveler's Tales team of LEGO game designers. It is now my new go-to argument in favor of the assertion that any idea, however grim, can be made funny with the proper application of Danish construction blocks.

Grand Theft Auto V's Trevor tries to ditch a body in skit

I am not a big fan of Nathan Barnatt. More specifically, I find the character he portrays at gaming events (Keith Apicary, a self-unaware trainwreck of socially inappropriate behavior paired with a nasty vocal defect) to be ...

The Fresh Prince moves to the Mushroom Kingdom

You haven't seen a mash-up quite like this. To celebrate the release of Super Mario 3D World, and to remind people how awesome '90s television was -- some fans have created a bizarre and ingenious remix of the game's main th...

What if Doom were produced today?

Doom was an immensely popular and genre-defining game back when it was released in 1993. It paved the way for many titles that followed and is still seen as one of the purest forms of first-person shooter gameplay. But thing...

Dhalsim joins Blanka for some hardcore trollin'

If you couldn't get enough Blanka trollin' not once, but twice, you may enjoy this new video complete with a tag-teaming Dhalsim who joins the fun with a bit of fire. While I thought part two lost its luster a bit by re-usin...

Blanka is still king of the trolls

You thought it was over? No, my friends, no. We've barely scratched the surface. Blanka is a bigger asshole than we could have possibly imagined. Blanka is a Troll - Episode 2 [YouTube]

Zynga error lets stranger do hilarious customer support

Zynga's been a hot topic in the news lately, but this gaffe is quite a bit more lighthearted than the Mattrick saga. It's also pretty embarrassing. As reported by Kotaku, Zynga accidentally put a random person in charge of cu...

I ran around and then died at E3 photo
I ran around and then died at E3
by Jonathan Holmes

This was a historic year at E3. The 8th gen console wars have officially started, independent developers are infecting Sony like a disease that makes you feel awesome, the Xbone caught more heat than a Alabama volcano in the summertime, and Nintendo gave away t-shirts featuring a gun toting, leather clad, big-butt lady jumping in front of the moon. The times, they are a-changing.

Sadly, I went into the show with a bad respiratory infection. I was hoping I would feel better as the show went on, but that's not really how these shows work. Still, because the vocal minority demanded it, I tried to run around at the end of the show and do things. Thankfully, it didn't last long, thanks to the leather clad, gun toting lady from the t-shirt. 

Thanks to everyone who interacted with me at the show! I hope you didn't get infected.

Conker's Bad Fur Day director's commentary is glorious

The horrible secret behind EA Sports' Ignite Engine photo
The horrible secret behind EA Sports' Ignite Engine
by Conrad Zimmerman

I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest. 

I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us.

How to order a pizza from Xbox Live photo
How to order a pizza from Xbox Live
by Conrad Zimmerman

Microsoft and Pizza Hut have teamed up to provide a service which allows people to order food through their Xbox 360 console and have it delivered to their homes. It's either the innovation truly lazy gamers have been waiting their entire lives for or one of the silliest things we've ever seen on the system. Either way, we needed to have Hamza place an order. Check out the video of his experience!
