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...

Overwatch parody short hilariously, terribly accurate

I am totally into what Blizzard is doing with Overwatch's animated shorts. They flesh out the characters, build up the Overwatch world, and looker baller as hell. I am a big, big fan of cyber ninja fights. That said, they are a litttttle bi...

Sunday Funny: Final Fantasy 7's Ruby Weapon sure was hard

It's Sunday, so why not end (start?) the week with a laugh. Featured this week is Oney Cartoon's latest parody titled "Pointy Bits." It starts off a little crude, but for the most part nails some of the game's more tedious encounters. ...

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...

Make way for DLC!

OH MY GOD! I am dying, you guys! I'm dead! This isn't the only parody that YouTuber SMNtoob slapped together (OH SNAP! It was our own Genki-JAM the whole time! Why didn't I read the video descriptions more carefully?). He's got a Mulan one...

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...

PSY is a minin', craftin' grieferman

Everyone was totally diggin' Korean pop sensation PSY when his "Gangnam Style" music video became an international hit. Then he just kept riding it... and riding it... and riding it. Then he starred in a pistachio commercial; I couldn't fa...

The Mario Busters answer the call once again
