This is a cool compilation of pictures.  Dorkly created a neat gallery where they took famous video game families/clans and made them into Game of Thrones families with accompanying icons and words.  They’re based on neat trivia and if you have the skill/knowledge of video game universes to ‘get’ them all, then you should give yourself a good pat on the back.  I only put the ones I know below, so check out the rest of them over at Dorkly, tell me where the other ones come from!

So I stumbled upon a rather interesting collection of artwork featuring famous animated characters re-imagined as zombies. While keeping most of their cartoon glory, they have been re-purposed with a rather sinister objective. They now exist solely to munch on your brains. While not all that scary, I found the artwork to be incredibly well done and very thematic in some places. For example, Buzz Lightyear lacking blood and having wiring instead or Master Chief seemingly infected by the flood parasites. It’s an incredibly interesting album worth checking out. Some of the characters are obviously named incorrectly as you’ll soon find out, but I won’t rag on the author of the article for his misdemeanor as I truly enjoyed the art.

I personally do enjoy the bliss of silence.  And many of you who’ve played video games understand that every once in a while, you’ll have a protagonist who essentially goes along with the flow.  He/She doesn’t protest nor do he/she have anything to say about a particularly horrible incident.  Sometimes these are detrimental to the plot and sometimes it’s just the way some people are.  UGO has compiled a list of their favorites silent protagonists.  I unfortunately haven’t had the opportunity to play as number 1.  Someone recommend that I do and I just might take them up on that offer…

The day has come when the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, the man who brought us the Legend of Zelda and Mario series, wants to work on an FPS. In a strange turn of events, Miyamoto has stated to others that he wishes to work on a project a little more Doom or Call of Duty oriented, but he lacks the time to do so. I’m not quite sure how the people would react to such a thing, but I’m fairly certain that it would be an interesting game nonetheless. Check it all out in the article below and tell us what you think!

They look to be having fun...at the expense of who?

When we play through our various collections of video games, saving the world or racing against friends, we usually do it without thinking about what goes on behind the scenes. Who fixes Mario’s kart, or anyone’s kart for that matter, when they crash into the water or get hit off the course by a shell or other forms of trickery and sometimes douchebaggery (here’s to you, Blue Shell, bane of my existence). What about Link’s neighbors, always being woken up by his terrifying battle screams (NYA! HYA! HAAAAAAA!) in the middle of the night with no explanations, and do those item chest noises always have to be so loud? (DA NA NA NAAAAAAA!). After reading through this article, I assure you that you may have a different take on your favorite video game characters and how they treat those around them. To be fair, most of them already treated everyone else around them like a sack of dung.
