Once Upon a Pixel Season 1 DVD now on sale

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 material. You wont se...

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...   read

Once Upon a Pixel: Super Mario Bros.

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 classic anime. ...

MAGFest 9 has killer guest lineup, includes HAWP cast

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 laugh and do s...

Once Upon a Pixel: Ms. Pac Man

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 Books that we lo...

Once Upon a Pixel: Uncharted

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 Danger Island whi...

Once Upon a Pixel: Animal Crossing

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 Upon a Pixel is...

Once Upon a Pixel: Chu Chu Rocket

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 chaos that it's ha...

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

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-based literature....

Once Upon a Pixel: Metal Gear: Worlds of Power

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 during the 80s. As y...

The art of Once Upon a Pixel: Mega Man

It seems that a lot of people really enjoyed this month's episode of Once Upon a Pixel, which makes me incredibly happy because it's a combination of two of my earliest loves: videogames and educational books. If you haven't seen it ye...

Once Upon a Pixel: Mega Man

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 date, and the mos...

Once Upon a Pixel: Silent Hill 2

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 not exist. But ...

The art of Once Upon a Pixel: Katamari Damacy

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 it yet. I'll g...

Once Upon a Pixel: Katamari Damacy

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 is called Death ...

The art of Once Upon a Pixel: BioShock

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 viewing pleasur...

Once Upon a Pixel: Bioshock
