Remember This Final Fantasy 3 Commercial?

April 14th, 2014 by

Considerably better than what aired for Final Fantasy 2, but still loaded with early-90s kitsch, the claymation Final Fantasy 3 (US) commercial featured Mog auditioning potential baddies for the game.

Simulations Teach Themselves To Walk, But Not Without A Certain Degree Of Hilarity

April 11th, 2014 by

I’m not the type to fully appreciate the complexity of all the mathematical scientificalities at work here. I can, however, appreciate a good old-fashioned unexpected laugh, which this demonstration has in spades.

Conan O’Brien Plays Street Fighter, Among Other Games, On The Big Screen

April 10th, 2014 by

And by “big screen”, we mean the massive display at AT&T Stadium.

In this edition of Coco’s “Clueless Gamer”, Conan plays some PS4 on one of the biggest (and probably laggiest) setups the world has ever known. Watching him play video games is kind of like watching grandpa pick up a controller, if grandpa was really funny.

Who knew Conan was such a fierce flowchart Ken, though?

The Raw Power Of Mike Tyson And Street Fighter Sound Effects

April 4th, 2014 by

Check out this crazy video of Mike Tyson footage combined with Street Fighter’s Balrog sounds. Man, that boy can bash. Having watched this, I feel like I understand Mike a little better – I have a newfound appreciation for his skills in the art of punchiness. Wow.

So it turns out David Bowie is the sole inspiration for the entirety of the Metal Gear Solid series.

Some of the examples are a bit of a stretch, though, while others are pretty spot on. Young Eva’s Bowie counterpart isn’t nearly as convincing as Old Eva’s virtual doppelganger.

Gives me the heebs, a little. [shivers]
