The Incredible Evolution Of Video Game Graphics In One Image

Image Cache: This picture represents over 30 years of progress in video game graphics. And my, how far we’ve come. On one side, we have Indiana Jones in the video game version of Raiders of the Lost Ark on the Atari 2600. On the other side, we have Nathan Drake in Uncharted 4 on the PS4. We’ll let you guess which side is which.


Showing Off On Social Media Is A Stupid Game

If life was a video game right now, it’d be a pretty terrible one. That’s because it would just be levels of Facebooks and Twitters and Instagrams and social networks that would encourage us to pimp our lives for likes. And push us to hashbrag what we do. And to make sure the world sees our selfies. Team follow back. Gross.


Unreal In-Game Footage Makes GTA V Totally Look Like A Parallel Reality

Video: After seeing footage of GTA V on the next-gen consoles, I’m beginning to think that GTA V isn’t just a video game. A full-blown parallel reality? That’s more likely. A real-life breathing city that exists somewhere? That would be more accurate. This footage of Los Santos at night in GTA V is unreal.


Who Would Win In A Fight Between Superheroes And Video Game Characters?

You have Thor, Captain America and Wolverine on one side. Master Chief, Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2, Ash Ketchum and his trusty Pokeball and a blocky guy from Minecraft. It should be no contest, outside of some fancy weapons, the superheroes should destroy any video game character… but do they?


Super Mario Bros Edited Into Real Life To Ruin People's Lives

Video: I’m a horrible person who always laughs when people fail in YouTube videos. This collection of fails made me laugh even harder because it’s been perfectly edited to splice in Mario and Luigi from Nintendo as the evil invisible force who cause all these screw ups in real life.


Stunning Animation Using CGI To Create Marionette Puppets

This ad was made by Elastic for League of Legends (a game of which half the world plays and half the world doesn’t know exists) but really, it’s just phenomenal animation work. I love seeing the marionettes move around and interact with the environment, it really feels like they’re on strings.


The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou Would Be A Fun 8-bit Video Game Too

We already know that The Life Aquatic is amazing as its own movie and spectacular when re-done in the style of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. Turns out, it’s also fun when you turn Wes Anderson’s flick into an 8-bit video game like CineFix did in this animation too.


Movie Filmed To Look Like A First Person Shooter Game Looks Incredible

Here’s an action scene from a movie called Hardcore that’s filmed completely from one character’s point of view so it looks exactly like a first person shooter video game. In fact, it’s so good, it’s as if those FPS video games like Call of Duty all of a sudden came to life. Watch it.


Scenes* From The Upcoming Tetris Movie, Which Is A Totally Real Thing

An “epic sci-fi movie” version of the video game Tetrisis in the works, because if Hollywood loves one thing, it’s action blockbusters based on nostalgia-fuelled brands with nonsensical plots (see: Transformers, Battleship, TMNT, really the entire Michael Bay oeuvre).


A Hacker Turned This Printer Into A Doom Machine

No one really likes them, but printers are actually more sophisticated than you might give them credit for. Given the right circumstances, hackers can take advantage of those guts. One recently did just that with a classic hack that never gets old: Make it run Doom.
