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?

FIFA isn’t just about soccer. It’s about madness, hilarity, and whatever the hell’s going on with that dude’s face.

The Real Secret Of Evermore

secret of evermore final fantasy 6

I’m not sure I’d consider Umaro a “main” character of Final Fantasy VI, but hey.

I thought I was clever back then for recognizing the Final Fantasy IV homage with Cecil behind the counter, but shit man. This particular secret is way more nuanced. And quite a bit more keen.

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.

David Bowie Is Metal Gear Solid

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]

Marvel Puzzle Quest – Healing without Health Packs

March 30th, 2014 by


I love Marvel Puzzle Quest. Admittedly, I’m obsessed with the game. Since it just surpassed 2 million downloads, I thought now would be as good a time as any to cover the Spider-Man heal in the game.

The Spider-Man heal was covered in our Marvel Puzzle Quest guide. However, that was for new players without a Spider-Man of their own to keep them in the game. With this, you’ll be able to conserve your health packs for when you really need them.

To do this yourself, you’ll need a bare minimum of two Spider-Man covers: 1 Web Bandages, 1 All Tied Up. The more of them you have, the better off you’ll be. I run a 3/5/5 Spider-Man build as my main character. Other characters are dictated by the event you’re playing at the time.

Also, if you don’t have Spider-Man classic, Black Widow (Original) works in a pinch. You’ll get the added benefit of AP disruption from Aggressive Recon, too, which can be a game changer.
