Sanshee brings new game-themed shirts to Anime Expo

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...

Enjoy acoustic Chrono Cross music first thing in the AM

It's Monday. It's probably really f*ckin' cold outside too. Hell, I live in South Florida and it's a frosty low-40s out my window. You're gonna need a pick-me-up to get the week rolling. Luckily for you, the Super Guitar Bros. acoustic duo...

The alphabet of 'Game Overs' in comic strip form

Superfans of brentalfloss might be aware that he has his own self-titled webcomic. He doesn't draw it -- doodles are provided by one Andrew Dobson -- but he co-writes along with series creator Dan Roth. And whenever there's a painfully unfu...

My favorite 4th of July videogame memory

This isn't a particularly exciting holiday tale. It doesn't involve an abominable snowman, or misfit toys, or an elf that wants to be a dentist. It is just a simple story about something that happened on one dark and unassuming 4th of July ...
