DTOID News: The Super Smashed of Us, Pokémonopoly & Borderlands
by Max Scoville

Hey gang! Here I am again, shouting about the dang news. Super Smash Bros. and Borderlands are making big piles of headlines, and The Last of Us is getting an HD re-release, so I guess we haven't seen the last of it just quite yet. Pokémon and Zelda are getting Monopolized, and The Evil Within is spooky.

Cliffy B chooses you to die in this Pokemon rap

Cliffy B feels the flow and spits fire (like Charizard!) in a Starbomb rap-along. Then he pulls a Pokeball out of his pants. I repeat: Then he pulls a Pokeball out of his pants. The Gears of War creator isn't the only person you're likely to recognize, though. This video's full of "special guests" that want to tell the tale of how they chose you to die.

What Twitch Plays Pokemon and True Detective teach us about modern storytelling photo
What Twitch Plays Pokemon and True Detective teach us about modern storytelling
by Steven Hansen

Recently, two opposite things have become popular: Twitch Plays Pokemon and True Detective. Popularity is a plague, now more than ever. It spreads. Tumblr fandoms have gif sets up before an episode of a show can end. On Twitter, people are "live-tweeting" a thing while they're supposed to be engaged with it, filling that space in between live-tweet sessions with themed hashtags (#truedetectiveseason2).

I was into Twitch Plays Pokemon (Red) for its novelty, for the creativity is spawned: songs, comics, and other bits of art. But its crowd-sourced canon is infinite monkeys on infinite keyboards. Except eventually writing memes instead of Shakespeare. Because time is finite and there are constraints. The same ones that let it finish Red in only 16 straight days. Because the monkeys can't just fling shit for six years between typing "up" and "a."

Team Rogket blasts off

A reddit user found a website where you can pay people a very small amount of money to read whatever scripts you want. So he paid a couple of guys to do the Team Rocket theme from the Pokemon cartoons. Japanator even did a feature about them, and you can check that out here. It's all very stupid, yet made me laugh like an idiot.

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.
