Once Upon a Pixel Season 1 DVD now on sale


Mar 27
// Jonathan Holmes
Once Upon a Pixel is my favorite gaming related video series on the internet. Unlike most shows about games and gamers, Once Upon a Pixel never goes for the cheap laugh or the unwarranted misappropriation of the source materi...

Come to MAGFest, everyone else is

Jan 03 // Matthew Razak
Well, I suppose you could be lame and do all those things at home, but you will also miss out on the chance to meet Jon St. John, voice actor for Duke Nukem, or Scott Ransoomair, creator of VGCats. You will also miss out on meeting your fellow Dtoiders and Dtoid alum, including Anthony & Ashly Burch and Ashley Davis (Hey Ash Whatcha Playin and Once Upon A Pixel), as well as Topher Cantler (The Journalism Show). Really, you should just let them convince you why you should come to MAGfest by watching the video above. More importantly you'll miss out on one of the biggest Destructoid community events outside of PAX. Seriously, the list of awesome Dtoiders coming is epic and if you aren't there then you won't get all the inside jokes we'll all tell. Think about it. Inside jokes are what make the internet work and you won't understand any of them! MAGFest is held at the Mark Center Hilton in Alexandria, VA (where you won't be raped) from January 13-16. All information can be found at http://magfest.org. Passes are in short supply, so order yours soon at magfest.org. If you already got a pass but want to find out what's going on with Dtoiders, join our google group at http://groups.google.com/group/dtoid-magfest-2011.  You will not regret it. [Thanks to Sir Changston for all his amazing help]

So what's your New Years Resolution? Lose 20 pounds? Learn a foreign language? Find your significant other? Good luck with that. In all likelihood, you will probably derail two weeks in. Coincidentally, that coincides with M...

The season finale of Once Upon a Pixel is finally here! This episode is probably my favorite of them all. It was really fun to make, and covers three of my favorite things ever: the Mario series,  kaiju movies, and ...

MAGFest is probably my favorite convention/gaming event ever. Where else can you play games for days on end, only to stop to get your face rocked off by multiple game music concerts. All my friends are there, we all drink and...

With only two more episodes to go until its first season ends, I decided to revisit the original storybook style for this month's Once Upon a Pixel. It mashes together an arcade classic with the Little Golden B...

The newest episode of Once Upon a Pixel is up on Gametrailers! This one's for all of you who grew up with the likes of Smokey, McGruff, Woodsy, and the dozens of other PSA animal mascots of the 80s and 90s. It's also for all ...

Once Upon a Pixel: Uncharted


May 04
// Ashley Davis
So, this is a brand new episode of Once Upon a Pixel. I finished it thinking it one of the best, but not a lot of people seem to share the same sentiment. It may be because I channeled 40 year old adventure shows like Da...

Throughout the three versions of Animal Crossing, my town, Roothill, has been home to dozens of cute animals and lots of fun times. I've played regularly since the GC version and don't ever want to stop! This episode of Once ...

Once Upon a Pixel: Chu Chu Rocket


Mar 02
// Ashley Davis
Puzzle games are my favorite genre, and near the tippy top of that list is Chu Chu Rocket for the Dreamcast. Why? It's certainly not because I'm good at it. A screen exploding with cats and mice creates so much cha...

The art of Once Upon a Pixel: Metal Gear: Worlds of Power


Feb 15
// Ashley Davis
The formula for this month's episode of Once Upon a Pixel was a bit of an experiment. Instead of taking a game's story and adapting/twisting it to fit something else, we decided instead to delve into the world of videogame-ba...

Feb 02

I forget exactly why, but a while back, Anthony and I procured most of the books in the Worlds of Power series. For those of you who are unfamiliar, they were a set of Nintendo videogame novelizations that came out durin...

Once Upon a Pixel: Mega Man


Jan 06
// Ashley Davis
Another month, another episode of Once Upon a Pixel. According to Mr. Burch, this is the "purest" episode so far -- that is to say, it is the one that is the cutest and sweetest. It is also the most Mega Man-ish episode to da...

It's the first Monday of December! Hopefully, you know what that means. If not, I guess I'll tell you: it's time for another episode of Once Upon a Pixel, the webseries that explores an alternate universe where videogames do ...

Did you enjoy last week's Once Upon a Pixel episode? Want some insight as to how and why I created the dark world that Death Ball takes place in? If the answer to either of these questions is "no", then maybe you haven't seen...

Once Upon a Pixel: Katamari Damacy


Nov 03

Once Upon a Pixel kicks off its official first season with an episode based on Katamari Damacy! Except this time, it's not a bright and happy videogame about consumerism. You see, in the world of Once Upon a Pixel, Katamari i...

Oct 05

I made a video. It was the pilot episode of Once Upon a Pixel, a sort of sister series to the ever-popular Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'. It has a lot of art in it that I drew. People asked me if I would upload that art for their ...

If we lived in a world where videogames didn't exist, where would their stories go? Into science fiction books? Big budget movies? Gritty graphic novels? Educational children's shows? My brand new series, as previously seen i...
