The Laser

I’ve sunk more hours into playing Halo 3 than I have done a fair amount of other things.  Many a night was spent awake with my stable of friends on Social Big Team Battle.  Usually the 8 of 12-14 of us would get together, sometimes we’d break up into two groups of 6, or 7 … Continued

VR Mario Kart

I gotta say, I never really was a fan of the Virtual Reality games and ideas.  But watching this side by side video of what the user sees, and how they have to interact with the game to play, I like it. A lot.  Is it practical for home use, not a chance.  Would I … Continued

Rt. 1

An intrepid designer built Route 1 from the original Pokemon games (possibly from Gold/Silver, not Red/Blue).  I like the various touches of trainers, and “wild” Pokemon that appear throughout the level. Pokemon was something of a revolution back in the day.  I remember my first time I beat the Elite Four.  I was so nervous … Continued

This is how Trackmania on the Xbox One should have been.  At least I’m sure the controls would have been better. {Destructoid}

Installation 01

0

Community re-built games have a tendency to look amazing, but never get anywhere.  I’ve never heard of Installation 01, but they just released a trailer for their work, you can watch it here: It’s a pretty damn good trailer, and it’s amazing at how closely it seems to have followed the source material of primarily … Continued

Halo SkeeBall

Halo’s Forge mode is one of those zany things that will never cease to amaze you.  Yes, there has been the more traditional death match maps made, but the video above is a version of Skee Ball, the classic arcade game where you’re not allowed to climb on the ramps. {reddit}

Halo Mjolnir Mix

Seriously, the opening of Halo 2 is one of my favorites in Video Game history.  Watch it below: For those that don’t know, the song played is the Halo Theme Mjolnr Mix.  The above video is that song, rendered on a bunch of floppy disk drives and a scanner.  Pretty ace. {reddit}

The latest game in my favorite PC game franchise has been released.  Rollercoaster Tycoon World.  You can buy it now on Steam, it’s only $34.  That’s not bad, it harks back to the older times when games were cheap.  Hopefully it’s not meant to show it’s quality, as many of the reviews on Steam give … Continued

Secrets of Super Mario 64

0

With the advent of emulators, and being able to mess around with the underlying game code we’re able to learn all sorts of new interesting stuff about games.  I also find it interesting that people spend the time to dissect the game to find these little inconsistencies. One such person is YouTube user UncommentatedPannen, he’s … Continued

Ash’s House

0

Well, it looks like it anyway.  Instagram user Pixelized Creations made this really dang good representation of the generic house from Pokemon complete with a garden, and Ash battling Gary. What’s even better, and somewhat hard to tell from the above angled photo is that it’s a 3-D representation of the scene.  The monochrome colors … Continued
