This Parappa homage is simultaneously genius and cringeworthy and I like it

From Gmcfosho, the mind that brought you "IMDABES" and "SWAGGIN DRAGON" comes "GTFO," one of the greatest videos you may ever see. It's a hilarious nod to getting all those losers out of your house after a party gone awry with one of the b...

Voice of PaRappa the Rapper petitions for a sequel

PaRappa the Rapper needs the world, and the world needs PaRappa the Rapper. A piddling two games is not enough for the floppy-eared dog, and no one feels that more strongly than the man behind the dog: Dred Foxx. Foxx recently reprised his ...

gamescom: My dream: PJ Berri for PlayStation All-Stars

Do you know who PJ Berri is? He's PaRappa the Rapper's best friend. Think back to the bear with the half-open eyes and the crazy appetite (he probably smokes). He's cranky, stupid, mumbly and hilarious, and I think he would make for a fanta...
