Get a look a what's behind Decapre's mask in these Ultra Street Fighter IV endings

If you are playing, will be playing, or don't care either way about Ultra Street Fighter IV, the game's story is probably not what comes to mind whenever it's brought up. That said, it hasn't stopped Capcom from creating ani...

The Terminator 2 river chase gets remade in Grand Theft Auto Online

So middle school for me involved many brain-rotting activities, not the least of which was the countless amount of hours spent watching machinima videos. While I don't have the free time that I used to, it's still a joy to w...

Guild Wars 2 meets anime in this stop motion fight scene

From the painstaking artistry at work, to my upbringing with films like The Nightmare Before Christmas, there's a reverence that I'll always have for stop motion animation, even if the final product isn't amazing (looking at...

Deadpool does Fanime, and wins

I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of Deadpool. It's not that I dislike his humor or self-aware, fourth-wall breaking schtick. Rather, it's that I feel too few people can actually utilize said schtick into anything inte...

Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion lets you play as a mariachi

Gary Busey and Chewbacca make for amazing Miis

You ever see something that's so simple, yet so perfect? Like a Gordon Ramsey dish that uses just five ingredients, and only takes 30 minutes to make.

It's as perfectly horrible as it sounds.
