That’s Your Videogame: Desert Bus

The New Yorker has a very funny piece today on a real life half-existent videogame from the late 90s designed by Penn and Teller that sounds an awful lot like your videogame: The drive from Tucson, Arizona, to Las Vegas, Nevada, takes approximately eight hours when travelling in a vehicle whose top speed i… More »

For Once And For All: What In The Hell Is Minecraft?

The Museum of Modern Art in New York has recently acquired a collection of videogames including Pong, Space Invaders, and Asteroids. You know, works of art! I get it, I guess.

This Is Just A Good Computer Generated Face Complaining About Yogurt Parfaits

Haha. Is it still a demo if it's PERFECT? We have crossed the Uncanny Valley and now I don't even know where the hell we are. Yogurtland, probably. "Get real." (Thanks for the tip, Hassian.)… More »

Duh Aficionado Magazine: Hollywood Preparing An Angry Birds Movie

Hollywood is preparing an Angry Birds movie. NO DOYYYY. To a normal human being, a big-screen adaptation of a cellphone game involving throwing birds into blocks of wood would seem like a ridiculous thing to try and turn into a movie, but you civilians are forgetting one thing that Hollywood has already figured out: people… More »

Ubisoft’s We Dare Is Your Videogame

Uhhhhh. What? brightcove.createExperiences(); It goes without saying that that is also your dinner party. "Is everyone done with their potatoes? Let's move this into the living room and strip to a videogame." My favorite thing about this game besides nothing because I hate it is how unsexy the game itself is? Like, it's just animated… More »

Nerds Talking Into Headsets While Playing Video Games Should Be A TV Station

Headphones UP: How are videos like this not just their own TV station yet? I'm not joking. I've never played a game of World of Warcraft in my life, and for that matter, I've never played any videogame that involved multiple-players on-line talking into headphones. I'm more of a Katamari Damacy man, myself. Just a… More »

The Videogum Movie Club: TRON: Legacy

Remember Y2K, you guys? That was the best. So scary! Haha. Y2K. What was THAT all about? I'm not sure I ever even understood it completely, but the basic idea, if I remember it correctly, was that the Eastern Seaboard's power grid was going to shut down, all of the banks were going to go… More »

The Videogum Movie Club Reminder: TRON: Legacy

Finally A Video Game For People Who Want To Sleep With Cable Access Commercials For Local Graphic Design College

This video of a demo of a new game for the XBOX Kinect is kind of NSFW, I guess? I mean, it basically features Buzz Lightyear wearing crotchless panties, so if that's going to be a problem, just be aware. Haha. Fair enough! If rubbing your Nintendo VirtualBoy ghost hand all over the Sims chest… More »

That’s Your Videogame: Sonderkommando Revolt

"I love playing video games! They're just a really fun distraction from the day-to-day stress of my normal life. In a lot of ways I like them even more than movies or TV because you are kind of, like, interacting with the narrative, you know? We probably aren't there yet, but I definitely think one… More »
