How to beat a Dark Souls II boss in under 15 seconds

This video comes from SuperNormalMode, who demonstrates just how easy it is to beat Dark Souls II's Dragonrider boss in under 15 seconds. I love how the dramatic music immediately stops.

The man behind Lamar from GTA V to become Black Jesus

This is TOTALLY barely even videogame related at all but I still wanted to write about it because Lamar from Grand Theft Auto V was one of my favorite characters from a videogame last year. So I'm happy to see Gerald "Slink"...

Blacksmith makes a Pokémon because the Pokémon is a sword

Man at Arms has created yet another videogame sword. This time, it's also a videogame character. Because the Pokémon is a sword. This is still funny to me. Time for some HM01. Hah.

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...

New Dragon's Crown figure turns the Amazon into a pole dancer

There's a new Dragon's Crown Amazon figure coming courtesy of Empty and it's some how more fan service-y than the Sorceress. She's straight up pole dancing on her axe for no reason. You can find more shots here. It's better t...

You might remember last year's World 1-2, the big game music collaboration featuring artists from both sides of the Pacific. If you aren't familiar, you may want to take some time now to catch up. The production group respons...

You are Rambo, and you must rip off your shirt to hug ghost ninjas

Naughty Dog designer Peter Javidpour made a little flash game about Rambo. He released Rambo: Last Blood a couple of years ago actually, but it's making the rounds again after the release of that horrible piece of crap Rambo ...

Dark Souls II reimagined as an '80s cartoon

Well, this is a fun concept: Dark Souls II as an '80s cartoon. You know how much we love those. Now, I don't want to oversell the video -- the execution doesn't go quite as far as I'd like -- but it's so, so close. There are tons of terrific little touches, however, and that final line pushed me over the edge into "I need to share this" territory. And here we are. [Via @aaronlinde]

Domino's Fire Emblem pizza isn't for Fire Emblem, sadly

Domino's "pizza" is terrible junk I wouldn't eat if I'd ingested a poison for which the only cure was the exact blend of possum endocrine system and Nickelback sweat found in Domino's pizza. That said, Domino's Japan is at le...

Usually we embed videos for you directly. You don't even have to leave the article. This time, you'll have to click right in this spot and watch the video on the website. It's worth it. Mobile users might want to wait until they get to a computer.

The Olympics would be better with Mario Kart power-ups

I'd be more inclined to watch the Olympics were it to actually have Mario Kart-like power-ups. Really any sport would be better with weapons.

It's the best cosplay from Katsucon 2014

Beat Down Boogie went to Katsucon 2014 and as always, have captured a ton of great cosplay on video. The usual mix is present. You got your Zelda cosplayers, a bunch of Master Chiefs, Mass Effect characters, and so on. My favorite moment is in the first part, with all those Elizabeths and Bookers from BioShock Infinite playing catch.

Ryu destroys some poor guy's car in this Turkish ad

"Insurance? Insurance is for people that plan to lose," is essentially what this gentleman boldly and unfortunately tells a reporter, seconds before Ryu shows up and goes all bonus stage on his car. Should've went with Anadolu Sigorta, dude. Or at least the gecko. Watch Ryu destroy a car in Turkish insurance commercial [Polygon]

Twitch Plays Pokemon causing chat issues

Twitch Plays Pokemon is a huge deal. So huge, in fact, it's been causing enormous stress on Twitch's chat system across the entire service. On Sunday Twitch actually moved the channel off of their normal servers onto a dedica...

Twitch Plays Pokemon got out of Rock Tunnel: A summary

When I picked up Pokemon Red, I went to Rock Tunnel without Flash. I tried to make it through in the pitch black. Then I tried to get back out. Then I decided the only way out of the darkness was to plunge forward, wholly an...
