Rad Show: Setting up for Christmas

It's almost Thanksgiving, so that means I have to get the Christmas Tree down from the attic. Normally I make Mrs. Lucha help, but she's busy so it's up to me to get this task done. Ever see someone stream getting a Christmas Tree out of an...

Pony Fighter to be remade with help from MLP:FIM creator

Lauren Faust is a powerful person. She helped take a relatively unremarkable children's show aimed at pre-teen girls and transform it into a multi-media, multi-generation, multi-billion-dollar sensation. She also apparently has the power to...

What's real anymore? My Little Pony / Fallout novels

There exists a five-book My Little Pony / Fallout crossover series entitled Fallout: Equestria. Written entirely by fans for fans, it takes two absolute extremes and mashes them together in a 2000+ page, 620,000+ word labor of blood, sweat,...

It's a My Little Rhythm PaRappa Pony Heaven freak out

Rhythm Heaven Fever is my favorite game of 2012. I love Fez and Retro City Rampage and Fatal Frame 2 and many, many other games that were released this year, but none of them have made a permanent change to my daily life the way ...

Get VVVVVV from Steam if you know what's good for you

At this point, I ought to just have a percentage of my paychecks go straight to Terry Cavanagh. Everything he does I seem to either enjoy, or at the very least, find interesting. Arguably his best game, VVVVVV, is now on Steam. If you have ...

You can be the proud owner of a Servbot Bobble Budd

By the time I realized Capcom was offering those ever-delightful Servbots in Bobble Budd form during this year's Comic-Con, it was already too late. I'm fairly certain I even cursed the name of Giant Bomb's own Ryan Davis for tweeting a pic...

Dooder's whimsy will melt your ice heart

2D, sprite-based platformers seem to be the go-to genre for many independent developers. If you aren't the kind of person who grew up on 8- or 16-bit titles, this can be a hard sell. Dooder by Matthew Thomas Seely certainly applies, and I ...

Epic Mickey controller leaves us speechless (also, Tron)

E3 10: Netflix search functionality coming to Xbox 360

General manager of Xbox LIVE Marc Whitten continues his trend of writing us "letters" that recap Microsoft's happenings at E3 once again. He usually slips in one or two unannounced items, and this year's report is no different. Whitten disc...

Death himself will come after cheaters in Guild Wars

My strong desire to avoid playing MMOs is not something I've ever tried to hide. Even if I wanted to get pulled into one of these games, the time honestly isn't there. You can imagine, then, how I feel when videos about crazy stunts GMs pu...

Listen up, iPhone owners: Pix'n Love Rush looks oh so rad

I don't own an iPhone or have any real interest in the vast majority of the games exclusive to the device. Why am I telling you this? Because against all odds, I am supremely intrigued by Pix'n Love Rush, which just so happens to be an iPh...

Here's another one of those mind-blowing Nintendo moments

Insane videogame trivia that someone won't discover until years after the fact and Nintendo sure do go hand in hand. The prime example (I'm so sorry if this is new to you) is surely the "bushes in Super Mario Bros. are simply green-colored ...
