Machinima

[Dtoid community blogger SeymourDuncan17 remembers a pioneer in the machinima scene. Rest in peace, Kitty. --Mr Andy Dixon] [Image credit: SpikyMilkshake] This has been the hardest blog for me to write. Even though I hav...
So Machinima's Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist series is surprisingly enjoyable to watch. I was worried this would be another hit-or-miss situation as with the live-action Mortal Kombat stuff, but that's not the case here. I...
Ah man! I love Honda. Not E. Honda. Just Honda. Great lawnmowers. I also love videogame fan films. Watching them feels kind of like eating 3 pints of Ben and Jerry's in one sitting. Wrong but tasty. Guilty but satisfying. Also, Ken's hair. [inhales deeply] Ken's hair. I HAVE to see this series. Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist officially debuts on May 23 on the main Machinima channel.
Super Smashed Bros. is the new cartoon that I've been working with Machinima and a group of like minded artists who like Nintendo and drunk cartoon characters. The first episode is about Captain Falcon and Mario getting...

Machinima is set to launch a video series about Handsome Jack, the villain of Borderlands 2. It's not looking like a huge budget production, but that doesn't mean it wont be a good watch. I managed to get Borderlands 2 write...
I don't care if you like Halo 4, or any game in the series for that matter. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is far and away the best example of how to adapt a videogame franchise to a live-action setting. I watched it expecting lit...
From the minds behind Two Best Friends, comes a Machinima short honoring the courage, bravery, and America of Call of Duty dog. Saving children by day, blowing up terrorist strongholds by night, Call of Duty dog only stops t...
Bioshock Infinite has been out for a little while now. The spoiler police are starting to doze off at their posts. The game's harshest critics and most passionate fans have seemingly declared a temporary cease fire (at least...
G4 and Attack of the Show are no more. What's G4 superstar Kevin Pereria been up to in the meantime? Among other things, he's taken to Machinima with Player Vs Pain, a show about hurting people while they play videogames. Ke...
[Teenage Pokemon is a cartoon show about Pokemon in their middle stage of evolution -- not a girl, not yet a women. New episodes every week.] When I was growing up, social classism wasn't really an issue in "gamer cultu...
You've heard of Forward Unto Dawn, right? Machinima's live-action video series that's setting up Halo 4? Well, it just ended, and you can catch the finale today, as well as the rest of the whole shebang which clocks in at 84 ...
The late 1990s were a very different time for entertainment. It was a time when MTV played music videos most of the time, and when they didn't, it was usually so they could show you something that you couldn't find anywhere ...

It's quite rare for a completely surreal videogame-based sketch comedy series to become a success. It's even more rare that the people who produce that brand of comedy show their faces out in the wild, where they may be pote...
It's been almost two years since we saw the first episode of Garrymon, the Pokémon spoof that used Garry's Mod with hilariously creepy results. During that time, creators HyperJerk and Dtoider Jetz had to restart the ...
All I want for Christmas is for this Machinima trailer to be for a real movie. Sadly it isn't, which I think is a shame. Don't worry though, there is an Angry Birds movie in the works. It just isn't an homage to Snatch (the movie, you perverts). Seriously though, this is an amazing idea, and while I have less than no desire to see the real Angry Birds movie, I would go watch this movie. Twice.
Machinima is back with a new live action web series, this time based on Resident Evil. The show is a prequel of sorts to RE2, following Leon Kennedy as he turns up to the wrong station on his first day. Episode 1 is extremel...
See that video up there? It's got over 150K views so far, and it's been out for a little over a week. For the internet, that's not too bad. How does one go about getting a video like this produced, distributed, and that many...
Machinima is at it again with another live-action movie trailer based on an old-school, semi-abstract videogame concept. They run with the dichotomy between Donkey Kong's beastly manner and his stately ne...
I'm not sure if there's crazy stuff going on in PlayStation Home that most of the world is not privy to, but if there is we're sure to find out now that Sony has released a new video capture tool. The Loot Active Camera gives...
Did you enjoy the series debut of The Tommy Wi-Show? Would you like some more? I bet you would like some more. Here's some more. In this extra footage, T.W. squares off against the nightmare king Freddy Krueger. By the way, check out the dude's fingers -- he is definitely hard to the core!

I've never seen Source Code, but I've seen the trailer for the Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi thriller a few times. And now, I've seen the trailer for Source Code as re-interpreted by Valve's Source, the game engine that powers its ...
That Mortal Kombat web series we haven't talked about in two months or so? It's coming April 12th! Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Machinima signed an agreement to distribute the entire series -- dubbed Mortal Kombat: ...
YouTuber darkhear13 has a profile full of Grand Theft Auto IV machinimas. Hard Charger: Wide Open is his latest work and it's a real thrill ride. It's just full of mayhem and captures what makes Grand Theft Auto so much fun. I really want a new Grand Theft Auto already. Or a remake of Vice City.

Giddyup, partner.
Machinima can be some pretty impressive and well done stuff. However, almost everything that happens in it doesn't pertain to the actual world of the game; it's just a fan's story in most cases. Machinima.com is changing tha...
Under normal circumstances, "Crackdown" and "miniseries" are two words that don't seem like a natural fit. Do you remember the story of the first game? It was a glorified Mega Man tale. I guess Ruffian Games and Microsoft wa...
At least to me, I would have never expected. I've watched this series since the beginning and never did I think the Rooster Teeth guys would break up the formula that we've become so used to in the Red vs. Blue series. I, fo...
Rooster Teeth is famous for their Red vs. Blue series and various other Machinima shows. The boys are now dabbling with real life stuff in their new show called "Immersion." Basically, it's Myth Busters but with a videogame ...
