The recession is hitting everyone and since the culmination of the events from Metal Gear Solid 4 even Solid Snake is in need of some work. The fine folks at Blue Core Studios have started a new web-series original, Metal Gear Office. If you couldn’t tell based off the title, this is a spoof on everyones favorite television work place, The Office, with a Metal Gear Solid twist. It’s pretty entertaining and you can check out the first episode after the jump. Hopefully we’ll see more episodes in the future!
One of the silliest and perhaps overly used dramatic word in all of film, television, and other mediums has found its way into one of the longest montages ever made. Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is not a single “no” left out to be discriminated against. With over 150 instances of the simple word, this montage proves to be quite entertaining. Yes! Check it out after the break!
DeviantArtist, TheBourgyman, has created a clever little piece of work that captures almost every single cause of death known in the Mario universe. Thwomps, Pirahna Plants, lava, quicksand, blue shells and more have all bested the super plumber in his time and can all be seen in this great graphic art. Check it out after the jump!
Amateur artist, Christ Bringhurst, a call center operator went on a quest in his spare time to design over 200 classic video game characters into Mega Man designed inspirations. The characters range from old to new as Master Chief, Solid Snake, Sub-Zero, Banjo-Kazooie, and more all join together to create this awesome little piece of work.

Team Unicorn, a group of lovely ladies promoting the existence of Gamer/Geek girls in the world, have come together to create a parody video of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.” This is just the start of what I would assume to be an ongoing collaboration of musical numbers, skits, and fun videos expressing the love of gamer/geek girls. The core group consists of Michele Boyd (The Guild), Clare Grant (Robot Chicken), Milynn Sarley, and Rileah Vanderbilt (Hatchet).
Their big hit debut, “G33k & G4m3r Girls” also known as the “Geek and Gamer Girls Song,” was directed by David Yarvo and premiered early September. Within a week, the music video gained over one million views on Break.com. With appearances by Seth Green (husband of Clare Grant), Stan Lee, and Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff, full nerdery was in order. Check out the awesome video after the break!
Mario Paint enthusiast/composer(?), Adolfo Baez, has created an epic nine minute montage of the evolution of video game music through Mario Paint. You can check out Adolfo’s YouTube Page to see his other works. This piece took him about one or two hours a day for three weeks to get this done and is executed pretty well. Pieced together by ear, this composition of video game music is really fun and captures the essence of the original songs. All of the songs are from Nintendo games unfortunately except for one Final Fantasy song, but the video is still pretty enjoyable. Check out the little medley after the jump!
Patrick Jean over at the studio One More Production created this fun little short, Pixels, that is visually stimulating and a great throwback to great video game classics. As a giant swarm of pixels draw near, more and more video game characters start attacking New York City. From Donkey Kong to Tetris, this short holds nothing back and brings visual effects to great heights on such a little film. I don’t think Steve Wiebe has a chance. Wait no further and go watch this short after the jump!
Some creative engineer genius rigged his own Ghostbusters proton pack to coincide with his love for the Nintendo Wii! Jake Rossi is the original designer and you can check out his blog here and see the original post! Click on the images to enlarge.
