I'd take a Stranger Things adventure game

Artist Jacob Janerka took a break from developing his game Paradigm to mock up this homage to the recent Netflix darling Stranger Things. The fairly-non-cloying ode to 80s adventure flicks (it's Goonies-ish and references Star Wars a lot) ...   read

What if -- bear with me -- the Overwatch cast were Animal Crossing villagers?

Wow, smash hit first-person shooter Overwatch and cult-classic chill out sim Animal Crossing, together at last! Thank you Renée for being good at drawing. These Blizzard-inspired creatures are all very cute.   read

Please don't shut down this beautiful Majora's Mask fan film Nintendo!

The below teaser for a Majora's Mask fan film released earlier in June, but was overshadowed by the madness that was E3 2016. Luckily, it has risen to the surface and caught my attention today and boy I'm glad it did. Just look at it i...   read

Overwatch characters make such good cats

Overwatch has had no shortage of fan art to further cement its cast in public consciousness. I made some. Blizzard made some. If the crew was a bit less humanoid, a little more pocket monster, there'd probably be enough visual recognition t...   read

This fan-made Star Fox cartoon sure is stellar

Star Fox Zero finally launched this month and had the reception of a wet fart in a lift. Fans of Fox McCloud might be sad Zero turned out to be such a dud, but animator, and voice actor Matthew Gafford has saved the day with the first epis...   read

BioShock's medical pavilion recreated in Unreal Engine 4 makes you forget what it actually looked like

Two years ago, we saw the glory of original BioShock assets dropped into Unreal Engine 4. Now UK-based 3D artist Ross Littlejohn has gone ahead and recreated a scene from everyone's favorite underwater city fro...   read

The best Ash Ketchum fan art on the first page of Google

I was writing a story about a weird Ketchum and, of course, the internet out-weirded it with ease. It was a well-meaning Google Image Search. Safe Search is even on, filtering explicit results. Just "ash ketchum." Not "ash ketchum fan art."...   read

Star Trek Online's new flagship article is a nostalgia trip

We already know that fan-made projects can be really cool, but things can get to another level if a developer also happens to be a fan. That seems to be the case with Star Trek Online and one of the starship designers at Cryptic Studio...   read

Dang! Watch an Alien-inspired, professional Metroid short film

Nintendo doesn't much care to do anything with Metroid save for soccer games, so here's a professional grade Metroid production, The Sky Calls. I was a bit dismissive of this for about as long as it took to see those excellent title cards ...   read

What if Bonk were cool?

Out of all the frustrating decisions Konami's made in the past few years, its shelving of the Bonk series hurt me the most. For those who don't know, Bonk was the first "radical" console wars rival to Mario, pre-dating Sonic by about 2 year...   read
