Watch Will Wright's favorite YouTube videos

Will Wright, videogame mastermind and creator of hits like The Sims, Spore and Sim City, was asked to curate YouTube. You'll see on his video post on YouTube that he did a pretty good job. The end result was a good playlist o...

The beautiful piano arrangements of WaltzForLuma

I see a lot of videogame music covers which make their way over to Weekend Destructainment quite frequently. For the most part, they're usually good covers but it's been rare, especially as of late, to find great covers. Ent...

Tara and Holmes jack into ByteJacker

Like the title says, Tara Long and I are on the latest episode of ByteJacker. On Youtube, people are saying that I look really concerned, that I agree with everything, and that I don't know sh*t. Interesting feedback. I guess I should try to care less, disagree more, and know more sh*t? Anyway, I love this show, and I'm glad I have an excuse to post it. Thanks for having us on, Anthony.

BOOM: Kinect scores its first headshot

Well, it may not be the first Kinect headshot, but it's definitely the first one that I've seen. JOURNALISM. Anyway, I hope everyone involved is OK, and that nobody gets their asses sued for this. You see kids getting hurt p...

Super Meat Boy claymation is no California Raisins

I'm a big fan of claymation and of Super Meat Boy, so I had to post this. It's clearly not a big budget production, but as a piece of fan art, this little film has lovably shambled its way into my heart. It makes me wonder h...

Onett in 3D is pretty neato

This video is a year old, which means it's positively ancient. But I hadn't seen it, which led me to believe that there may be others who have not seen it. By that, I mean others who are interested in Earthbound and mig...

Evan the teen werewolf hates Josh and his 360

I'm not sure why this video happened, but it has. He's either faking, seriously disturbed, a massive PS3 fanboy or actually a werewolf. None of those reasons excuse destroying a perfectly good 360. Also, Josh is kind of a do...

Remixer Hyadain is actually a seasoned Japanese composer

I knew he was pro! Remember when we profiled the amazing and mysterious video game music remixing superstar Hyadain? Star of the Japanese side of the internet and even our YouTube? Even back in 2008 I suspected that he was a...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 stole my sunshine, looks hot

Super Mario Sunshine may be one of the worst selling Mario games ever, but that doesn't mean that it was all bad. Apparently Nintendo doesn't hate the game either, as portions of Super Mario Galaxy 2 clearly acknowledge the...

You got Team Fortress 2 in my Persona 4

You know how every once in a while you see that someone has had an idea that was so simple, so obvious that you are personally angered that you hadn't had the idea before? This is totally not one of those times for me. I wou...

2K on BioShock 2 ending leak: It 'won't make much sense'

You might have heard that the BioShock 2 ending is up on YouTube. No,  I'm not going to link to it. That's a dick thing to do, and is almost as bad as putting it up in the first place. I did, however, point it out to 2K....

What does YouTube and gaming have in common? Well, nothing really... yet. But a patent application from Google suggests that may be changing. The patent (titled "Web-Based System for Generation of Interactive Games Based on D...

The Vampire Killer theme from the Castlevania series is by far one of the most recognizable gaming themes out there, and it's probably one of the best themes from the days of 8-bit gaming. It has also shown up in almost every...
