Mario, Luigi, and Wario invade the Tour de France

Sport news?! On a videogame website?! Usually this is the sort of transgression me and my chubby little sportless legs would simply not allow, but for this one time I will make an exception purely because of how brilliant it is. Mario, Lui...

Check out all this cosplay from Anime Expo in 60 FPS

Cosplay videos are always challenging, especially when you're at a show where you don't recognize half the characters. I don't watch a whole lot of anime, but I wanted to see if I could make an interesting video nonetheless! Maybe I succeed...

I hope this adorable Magikarp baby never evolves

This baby's costumed antics put a huge smile on my face. I hope you have the same reaction. It's basically the inverse of that (also great) beefcake Magikarp from last month.

Squid Now 2: Splatfest - A Splatoon avant-garde art film sequel

[Warning: The above video is not safe for life and features a large man only wearing booty shorts.] Splatoon's Splatfest may be over, with those bastard dogs winning via popularity when cats are clearly better, but that didn't stop me from...

This Fallout cosplay proves cats are better than dogs

The argument about whether cats are better than dogs has finally come to a close. Cats win. I mean, just take a look at these cats cosplaying as a character from Fallout -- how could you ever consider dogs better after seeing this? You're p...

Tomb Raider? I hardly even know her, and it's even harder to pick her out on account of all the Croft cosplayers at this SDCC event

San Diego Comic-Con is a breeding ground for cosplay. You'll find everything from the most amateur of outfits to the best professional-grade costumes. People really like to dress up like the things they really like. Microsoft is making a c...

This Magikarp cosplay brings back wonderful memories

Oh. Oh now this is the sort of stuff I like to see, Sev Cosplay. It reminds me of an important time in my life… The last time I ventured to Hoenn was a journey I will never forget. It was a long, lazy summer full of friends and adve...

Sexy Nintendo is inevitable. Some will try to fight it, or even mock it. In doing so, they are choosing to live on the wrong side of history. I know how they feel. I scoffed along with the rest of them back when the burgeoni...   read

Half an hour of damn good cosplay at Dragon Con

Come for the pole-dancing Bigby Wolf cosplay (1:26), stay for the "Walk the Dinosaur" remix. The video's title is accurate -- "The Really Long Dragon Con 2014 Video," indeed -- but it's Beat Down Boogie. If I can make it through the whole ...

Dragon Con probably has the best cosplay

There's a guy here with such serious cosplay game that, dressed as Nicholson's Joker from Burton's Batman, he actually has three cosplay henchmen behind him. I don't think I could ask three friends to cosplay as my underlings. Maybe he pai...

TGS cosplay nailed Sora's goofy ass clown shoes

Those Sora shoes at 30 seconds. The coolest, grossest thing. Also, we need some new filming techniques for cosplay videos beyond "slow mo, then drop the bass and spin around people a bunch." Where's the Citizen Kane of cosplay videos,...

I doubt I'll ever attend Dragon Con, what with my inability to be in two places at once and PAX falling on the same weekend, but the cosplay photos and videos are always a treat. We were on the scene for another photo round-up. My favorites...

Everyone dressed as their favorite computer game & cartoon book characters for Heroes Con

I don't know half these characters, which is fine. I'm mostly perplexed as to why a bunch of these flamboyant, superhero-looking characters are carrying assault rifles. Why does Spawn need a gun? Lots of Deadpool takes, of course. Steam pu...

Deadpool does Fanime, and wins

I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything interesting. Too of...

9 minutes of the cosplay from MomoCon 2014
