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...

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]

Ken and Ryu make out: Videogames turned romance novels

In Valentine's Day spirit Shutterstock tasked an artist with turning some of its stock photos into mock up paintings for videogame romance novels, full of Austen-tatious fonts and a creepy Princess Peach. I'm not sure why, but I guess it's a novel idea. The Duck Hunt one was out of left field, too. Power Couples : Classic Video Games Reimagined as Romance Novels [Shutterstock]
