A la cartridge: Pasta di Pikmin photo
A la cartridge: Pasta di Pikmin
by Steven Hansen

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames are doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. This is the second episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge, a straightforward cooking show where I teach you how to make tasty things and talk about the games that inspire them. In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri?

This week, we take a reprieve from meat and tackle a vegetarian dish. Yes, it's still mad tasty. Bell peppers are the best, especially when well pepp-ared. It's also probably easier than last week's Dragon's Crown-inspired pork shoulder and potatoes. Just throw things in fire! (more detailed recipe below)

If you're in the Olimar-ket for good eats, this Pikmin 3 platter is sure to please. Plus, you can make a whole bunch on the cheap and have leftovers for days. Watch the video. It only takes a few pikmin-utes.  I think I talk less stupidly and we're getting closer to eliminating jump cuts. Any sort of recipe you'd like to see done next? Any particular game? Want to comment on my fabulous shirt?

Inside every Mega Man is a Meat Boy

You've crossed the fans for the last time, Capcom! How DARE you infiltrate the Uwajimaya Asian grocery store in Seattle and reshape the deli meats to resemble Mega Man and Cut Man instead of using all of that wasted time to a...

A la cartridge: Dragon's Crown pork monster
by Steven Hansen

Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames are doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. I would like to humbly present the first episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge, a straightforward cooking show where I teach you how to make tasty things and talk about the games that inspire them. 

In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri? Will I remember to get a knife sharpener so I don't swear into the camera when I cut myself? Will the sorceress in Dragon's Crown invest in proper bust support to nip future back problems in the bud? 

Find out by watching the inaugural episode, in which I cook a gigantic pork shoulder and rosemary potatoes (full recipe below). And tell me what I can do to improve. What upcoming games might you want to see a dish for?

This Surgeon Simulator cake is super gross

The guys behind Surgeon Simulator 2013 had a special cake made to celebrate the game's success. It's themed after what you do in the game, and well, it's pretty damn gross. So gross that I put it below the fold in case you'r...

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut ... in the coffee

A box arrived for me today, and I had a good idea of what it was. Not only was I expecting Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut to arrive today, the package absolutely stank of raw coffee and toothpaste. It could only be one th...

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!

Jimquisition: Perfect Pasta Sauce
by Jim Sterling

This week, Jimquisition gives you a brief lesson in pasta sauce, and ties it into the misguided quest for perfection currently plaguing the so-called "AAA" title scene.

Expanding on a few ideas found in last week's episode, today is all about variety, expectation, and catering to the silent markets that could be making publishers money, if only they bothered paying attention ... and learned a thing or two about pasta.

Reviewing Skylanders Happy Meal Toys

Activision sent a box of those Skylanders Giants Happy Meal toys over. Bereft of anything interesting to do, I decided to review them. I didn't really review them, though. I just rambled sarcastically while playing with toys.  Videogame journalism is real.

Animated Skyward Sword diorama is part delicious cake

Parents can be really awesome when it comes to cake. I remember for a birthday long ago, my mom made me a prehistoric landscape cake populated by dinosaurs, rough terrain, boulders, trees, and an erupting volcano. I thought ...

China gets a League of Legends restaurant

China is the land where dreams become a reality. Well, at least if you dream small and don't mind bootlegs. A couple of days ago, a League of Legends-themed restaurant opened its doors to the masses in Chongquing, China. ...
