Despite the bitchin’ soundtrack, Telltale Games’ latest collaboration, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, can’t be called a thrilling, rock-fueled space opera. It’s more like easy listening.

CineFix’s 8-bit movie series are always good but this one on the original Star Wars trilogy is especially awesome because for each movie, the graphics get a little bit better as if they were progressing from like the original Nintendo to Super Nintendo. It’s also great because I’d watch this entire trilogy in 8-bit…

The best video games you can play are those that let you act like a complete maniac while surrounded by party girls and mountains of drugs and just shoot a lot of people.

Here's the official music video for Pharrell Williams' latest single "It Girl". It's a visual trip that combines lovely anime and nostalgia inducing 8-bit video games with the always colorful imagination of artist Takashi Murakami. It's not so much a music video as it is moving art.
Neil Druckmann, writer and director of the post-apocalyptic video game The Last of Us, and Sam Raimi, who is producing the film adaptation, came to Comic-Con to talk about the movie. And while it's not written in stone yet, they said Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams may be playing Ellie.

When you're playing the game of life, you probably imagine it to be some impossibly complicated RPG filled with awful consequences and no right answer. You'd be wrong.

Or is it the only video game gourd ever conceived? Neither here nor there. Either way: it's excellent (it's mother-flipping Pumpktris, for crying out loud); it's fully operational (thanks to a handy dandy peduncle-turned-joystick); and it was born out of a daydream. Explains Nathan, its creator:
This week's round of crowdfundable projects takes us to the tiny fictional state of Unterzoegersdorf, where a feature film would rope UN peacekeepers into a world of political intrigue.
