Get intimate with the creators of Sanity Not Included photo
Get intimate with the creators of Sanity Not Included
by Jonathan Holmes

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 potentially punch by a stranger. 

That's part of what make Lyle and Dexter, the creators of Sanity Not Included, such special young men. They want to get close to you... right now! Read on as the bear all in a hot topic discussion of how to make a machinima, how much better Uncharted could have been if the creative guy on staff was in charge, how the internet is more influential to them than television, and much, much more (maybe too much).

Garrymon Episode 2: The nightmarish Pokemon spoof returns

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 ...

Machinima teases (fake) Angry Birds movie trailer

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.

Tips from the pros on how to make funny videogame films photo
Tips from the pros on how to make funny videogame films
by Jonathan Holmes

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 views in that short of a time?

Well, I'm still trying to figure that out myself. None of my series (Sundays with Sagat, Constructoid, Talking to Women about Videogames, or various event coverage videos) have ever done those kinds of numbers. If you're like me, and you'd like to know more about how to make a wildly popular internet video, read on for my Q&A with the creators of Mr. Kong

Live action Donkey Kong makes metaphor reality

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...

This Grand Theft Auto IV machinima is full of carnage

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.
