Monday Mind Teasers: I saw her standing there

 . . . but then she was a zombie. This enjoyably simple game popped up on Reddit over the weekend and its concept and music carry it a long way beyond its sparse graphics and easy difficulty. The KrangGames flash game on...

The ten best videogame weddings EVER! photo
The ten best videogame weddings EVER!
by Chad Concelmo

The royal wedding was earlier this morning! And I had no idea! Yay!

To be honest, there had been so much coverage about this supposedly major event that I kept thinking the royal wedding had already happened weeks ago! I swear, when I was running on the treadmill the other day I could have sworn I saw Jillian Barberie going on and on about how beautiful Kate looked in her wedding dress.

Regardless, any major event/holiday/driver’s license renewal is excuse enough for me to put together a ridiculously pointless list. So ... yay! It is a time for celebration!

Instead of watching a beautiful, rich girl marry a beautiful, rich boy and eventually be the focus of some Oscar-winning movie in a few decades, join me as we celebrate the ten best videogame weddings EVER! And, outside of your own, videogame weddings are the most important weddings anyway, right?

Borderlands' Claptrap and Anthony Burch play Cupid

Why in the world did we not post this yet? Destructoid alum Anthony Burch, now a writer for Gearbox, helped to make this video starring Borderlands' Claptrap for Ben, a fan who wanted to propose to his girlfriend in an extra special way. It's cute and it's funny. Oh, and she said yes, if you were curious. Claptrap Has A Proposal For You, Tora [Kotaku] [Thanks, Miles!]

You knew it was coming: A Minecraft wedding proposal

Y. Inferno: Mega Man Vs. Street Fighter fan made mash-up

Just like Minitroid from a few days back, Mega Man Vs. Street Fighter has been around for a while, but somehow I totally missed it. It's definitely getting better as time goes on. The first work-in-progress video against Ryu...

Book review: Udon's Art of Capcom 2 photo
Book review: Udon's Art of Capcom 2
by Jonathan Holmes

For a long time, American comic books consistently butchered the works of Japanese game developers with hackneyed, half-hearted game-to-comic adaptations. I still remember the pain I felt after buying Malibu's Street Fighter comic all those years ago. I think I actually said "YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP!" to myself as I read through it. Everything that I loved about Street Fighter was either badly mangled or removed completely, all in favor of a story and an art style that seemed to spit in the face of everything that made Street Fighter so special.

Years later, a group of comics professionals got together who actually appreciated the art of Street Fighter and other Capcom games, and by "appreciated," I mean "worshipped." While they've been tapped to work on projects related to the Metroid Prime series, the film Inception, and the upcoming Godzilla reboot, the team at Udon inevitably comes back to the series that inspired it all: Street Fighter. Even during the years when it looked like we'd never see another Street Fighter game, Udon was still producing new Street Fighter comics.

Their hard work and dedication has been rewarded. Capcom has actually commissioned Udon to work on a few of their games, including Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. In this book you'll see artwork from those games, as well as from Udon's comics, and other original Capcom-related works. It's basically a "best of Udon" of the past four years. Read on for details.

Tokimeki Memorial game stuffed on biggest DS cart ever

Heavy Rain: Samuel L. Jackson wouldn't go very far for love

Recently, Sony sat down and chatted it up with a bunch of film-industry people I've never heard of. And Samuel L. Jackson. The topic was supposedly Heavy Rain, although I'm not sure the people being interviewed knew that. In...

Man and videogame are wed, face and palm meet again

You know, when I posted a video of Love Plus a while back to show off its quirky dating sim charm I thought that would be the last we saw of the game here on Destructoid. After all, it wasn't coming to the West any time soon ...

Cross SMW off the list of unique ways to propose

The hopeless romantic in me sort of cringes at the above video as I'm pretty sure that no girl in the world really wants to be proposed to while sitting on a stool in front of a TV while playing Super Mario World, but the ga...
