A friend of mine linked me to this video recently (Thanks Menelven, if you’re reading this), and I fell in love with the song. For anyone who loved the original Pokemon more than any of the newer ones, this guy certainly echoes your sentiments. There’s a bit of a lengthy plug at the end, but considering the fact that we like to shamelessly plug our own product, I suppose it’s acceptable. Video after the jump.

I was shown this video by a friend the other day, and as a gigantic Mega Man fan, I loved it. It’s part of a new series by Egoraptor, who a lot of you may know from his various Awesome videos (Metal Gear Awesome, Awesome Center, Awesome Reach, etc.) centered on video games. It’s a bit of a long one, at just about 20 minutes, but every single minute is worth it. Video after the break.

I’m a gigantic wrestling fan. I have been ever since I was about 7 years old. A lot of kids idolized their favorite football or basketball players, whereas I championed a different man: “Macho Man” Randy Savage. I’ve grown up with wrestling (I often joke about how I was born to be a wrestling fan, since I’m the same age as Wrestlemania and it always happens right around my birthday), and as such, I make sure to get every new WWE game that hits the shelves.

With last year’s offering, Smackdown Vs. Raw 2011, came a new mode that was a major hit: Universe Mode. For everybody who ever wanted to run the WWE the way they wanted to, this mode provided them with that opportunity. However, it did have its flaws, and there were areas in which it sometimes seemed a bit limited or repetitive. This year, with WWE ’12, the developers are looking to address and rectify the complaints that the fanbase has given them, and from the looks of it, they’ve done a mighty fine job. Check out a video highlighting some of the changes to the mode, which they are now calling “Universe Mode 2.0,” after the jump. Continue reading »

As anypony who knows me should know by this point (as should most listeners, given my tendency to mention it here and there), I’m a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. As such, I like to contribute to the fanbase, even though some of my friends (At least two of my RNR partners included) hate me for doing so. I just recently finished up a Pony Music Video (PMV) that I put a fair amount of work in, and I figured, “Hey, we’re a nerd culture podcast, and my obsession with this show is pretty nerdy!” That being said, check out my PMV of Green Day’s “Last of the American Girls,” titled “Last of the Equestrian Girls,” after the jump.

I’m not quite sure if I’ve made this abundantly clear, but I’m excited for “Skullgirls” to be released. This trailer previews the newest addition to the game: Parasoul. From the looks of it, Parasoul is the princess of her own kingdom and the leader of its vast army, and she takes full advantage of her government-issued weaponry and militant population in her fighting style. Check out her trailer after the jump. Continue reading »
