PUP's new music video makes good use of classic games

Earlier today, Darren passed along this music video for Torontonian punk band PUP's song "DVP" as a thing we might be interested in covering, and he made the right call. Always bet on Darren. The video, directed by Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, is...   read

Somehow DJ Khaled fits perfectly in The Witness

I've been playing through Jonathan Blow and gang's The Witness of which I have very mixed feelings -- unlike Brett who gave the game a perfect score in his review -- but that hasn't stopped me from falling in love with this amazi...   read

Attention, Pokemon hipsters: The Red/Blue soundtrack is on vinyl now

When you think about it, "With a Little Help from My Friends" is a song that's pretty fitting for trainers in Pokémon. After all, they only command the adorable little critters; they don't actually do any of the fighting on thei...   read

Here's a snippet of that Wyclef Jean song from Lost in Harmony

Portal's 'Still Alive' sounds very Disney with a full choir

Portal's beloved "Still Alive" is a quirky anti-epic, so giving it the full choir treatment just kind of sounds like a '90s Disney tune, even when the rest of the voices (backup singing villagers or something) jump in halfway through. Techn...   read

Review: Chiptune Champion

I love chiptune music and I love music and rhythm games, so of course I had to play Chiptune Champion, which combines them both.  It might not be perfect, and it might not be much to look at it, but it has its charm.    read
