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.


Microsoft Is Buying Minecraft For $US2.5 Billion

The rumours are true, Microsoft is snapping up the block-based blockbuster Minecraft and the studio behind it. But don’t freak out; Microsoft promises that Minecraft will continue to be available on all the platforms it’s already on, including PC, Android, iOS, and yes, Playstation.


15 Old Gadgets That Live On In Our Hearts

All types of different gadgets enter and leave our lives. Some stay for years and are cherished well past their prime. Others we lose, whether sold off in our youthful ignorance or lost in some other equally tragic way.


What's The Best Video Game Peripheral Ever?

Video game consoles are amazing. Ever since I cracked into my first NES 20+ years ago, they continued their steady progression of awesome. Yeah, there have been a few hiccups along the way (does anyone remember 3DO Interactive Multiplayer?), but overall every iteration was an improvement.
