We're making some portable eats on this week's A la cartridge. Inspired by the HD release of the seafaring adventure that is by far the best Legend of Zelda game, The Wind Waker, we have our first seafood dish of the show. Also perhaps the Hyrule-est pun count yet. We had the maritime of our lives. Dear god.
These individually foil-wrapped salmon pouches feel like Link could pull them out of his tunic at any point in time, chow down, and regain some hearts. Wind make some for yourself! Bonus points: if you're not a typical seafood fan, the topping and seasonings get rid of that oft disliked "fishy taste."
Throw one in your pocket and head onward towards adventure. Or make yourself a nice smoothie out of last week'sPuppeteer recipe.
Taco Bell and Sony have teamed up to give away a PlayStation 4 every 15 minutes. The catch? You have to eat Taco Bell. Every Taco Bell $5 Buck Boxes comes with a code that you'll then have to text to possibly win a PS4 prize ...
I thought this was a joke. It's not a joke. Campbell's has partnered with Nintendo to release Mario-branded SpaghettiOs.
Why, yes, it is the year 2013. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, you couldn't toss a penny down a supe...
Accordingly, we decided to make something healthy for Puppeteer, the delightful platformer from Sony Japan. Smoothies are a cheap, quick and easy venture and manage to pack a whole lot of good taste into a small package. This one is extra good for you, too, just like how different and creative games like Puppeteer are healthy for the gaming industry amidst AAA action games and brown military shooters.
These make for a great quick breakfast or lunch. You can even parcel out your fruit ahead of time, freeze it, and always be ready to Kuta-go.
Grand Theft Auto V comes out next week, so we decided to make something fittingly huge and insane for this week's A la Cartridge. None of the fun and whimsy of last week's Dustin Hoffman x Rayman Legends crossover.
Well, that's not true. There is still some fun. I talk about dog customization and try to fit something of unrivaled girth into my mouth. Tip: three sausages is overkill. Between three of us, we finished half of this triple chili-cheese-dog, pastrami-topped burrito.
Check out the video, full recipe below, and let me know if this dish Grand Theft Auto-matically made your stomach turn. It's damn tasty in spite of its absurdity, honest.
I'm slowly recovering from a wild and crazy PAX weekend. I've been to PAX East twice in the past, but this was my first time attending Prime. It was beyond a doubt the most emotionally polarizing con I have ever attended, fil...
Food is good. Videogames are good. Food inspired by videogames is doubleplusgood. It's simple science. Science and art. The third episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge is inspired by Rayman Legends. In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri?
Last week we went quintessential Americana with the Killer is Dead Mondo Burger. Now, we're heading south of the US border, to Mexico, to duck those murder raps and eat some Legendary Chilaquiles. Rayman Legends is a great couch co-op game and chilaquiles is a chill-and-easy dish that serves plenty.
Feel free to stir some scrambled eggs in as well. Go nuts. It's in the spirit of Rayman. I almost added candy eyeballs to everything.
This episode of A la cartridge is brought to you by Rainman's Raymond Babbit.

After last week's vegetarian reprieve, Pasta di Pikmin, we're taking a return to meat with the Killer is Dead-inspired Mondo Burger. Grasshopper's new game dropped yesterday and a lot of you are really interested in it, if yesterday's exploded comment section on my feature is any indication.
I invite you to take a break from that madness and, Killer Instead, cook yourself something nice. This is a simple, powerful burger with some teeth to it. The full recipe is below.

This week, we take a reprieve from meat and tackle a vegetarian dish. Yes, it's still mad tasty. Bell peppers are the best, especially when well pepp-ared. It's also probably easier than last week's Dragon's Crown-inspired pork shoulder and potatoes. Just throw things in fire! (more detailed recipe below)
If you're in the Olimar-ket for good eats, this Pikmin 3 platter is sure to please. Plus, you can make a whole bunch on the cheap and have leftovers for days. Watch the video. It only takes a few pikmin-utes. I think I talk less stupidly and we're getting closer to eliminating jump cuts. Any sort of recipe you'd like to see done next? Any particular game? Want to comment on my fabulous shirt?
You've crossed the fans for the last time, Capcom! How DARE you infiltrate the Uwajimaya Asian grocery store in Seattle and reshape the deli meats to resemble Mega Man and Cut Man instead of using all of that wasted time to a...

I would like to humbly present the first episode of Steven Hansen's À la cartridge, a straightforward cooking show where I teach you how to make tasty things and talk about the games that inspire them.
In my quest to become the Alton Brown of videogames, will I become videogames' Guy Fieri? Will I remember to get a knife sharpener so I don't swear into the camera when I cut myself? Will the sorceress in Dragon's Crown invest in proper bust support to nip future back problems in the bud?
Find out by watching the inaugural episode, in which I cook a gigantic pork shoulder and rosemary potatoes (full recipe below). And tell me what I can do to improve. What upcoming games might you want to see a dish for?
