Weird Al closing out BlizzCon

Weird Al Yankovic is pretty important to me. I'm old enough to remember listening to Weird Al on the radio, Sunday nights on the Dr. Demento Show. Even before that, I would trade cassette tapes with kids at school trying to collect all of A...

Review: Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures

For years, James "Angry Video Game Nerd" Rolfe has suffered the worst that retro gaming could toss at him for the sake of your amusement. Why does he do it? Is he a masochist? Does the rage that burns inside with every sudden death and game...

The ecstacy of Smooth McGroove's VG a cappellas

I've tried my very best to avoid sharing too much of Smooth McGroove's kickass a cappella arrangements. Not because I think he's lost his Midas touch, but because I didn't want to be held responsible for making heads explode out of sheer d...
