Way back in the old days of Thanksgiving 2014, when we got our first ever look at Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was inevitably followed up by tons of amazing parody remakes—including the customary Lego versions. But now we have what is essentially an official parody of that first teaser trailer, and it’s amazing.
I think overly decorative cakes are silly—like cool, here’s a cake that looks like the Great Barrier Reef, enjoy your edible starfish—but this Super Mario Bros. cake is wonderful because it recreates the entire first level of the video game in perfect, delicious detail. It’s a stop motion animation in cake form. Every…
Praise the sun, Dark Souls fans! The wildly popular dark fantasy video game series about dying again and again (and again) is heading to the world of comics, where it’s likely also to tell tales of poor adventurers being killed by horrible monsters. At least reading a comic will be less punishing than playing the…
The wait is over: Starting 11am EST Wednesday morning, you can preorder an Oculus Rift of your own. The company just made the announcement on its blog. No word yet on pricing or expected delivery date.
MEG 9 is the forthcoming video video game from developer Skunkwerks Kinetic and William Gibson. Yes, the William Gibson who wrote Neuromancer, so it should be no surprise that it oozes classic scifi elements.
If you were a gamer in the early ‘80s, you’ve no doubt played ColecoVision—the short-lived console that brought arcade games to your living room. Well, get ready for a nostalgia hurricane, because Coleco is back on the scene with a new home console—and it’ll play actual game cartridges.
It was one of the first NES games to include the well-known Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) and now thanks to NECA, Contra fans can finally own action figure versions of the game’s main characters: Private First Class Bill Rizer and Lance Bean.
Chainmail Bikini is a new anthology of comics “by and about female gamers.” Some 40 cartoonists have contributed their own perspectives on everything from video games to card games to role-playing games, and the results are pretty hilarious.
A couple years ago, I wanted to find out the name of the actor who played my favorite character on House of Cards, so I googled the character. Big mistake. The very first Google search result was the character’s House of Cards Wikia page—including date of death. I didn’t even have to click on the link. Spoiled.
Overwatch, the new shooter game from Blizzard, has already dazzled us not with its actual gameplay, but with its lavish announcement trailer that had us excited for an animated series about these kooky scientists and heroes saving the day. But we’ll take the next best thing: a bunch of comic books!
Nobody cosplays better than gamers. Don’t believe us? Check out this incredible gallery of beautiful cosplay images from this past weekend’s BlizzCon. The attention to detail and the playfulness are just unbelievable. Here it is—our ultimate BlizzCon cosplay gallery!
At last, after years of teasing, the first trailer for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie is here. If you’re familiar with the smash hit video game franchise, it’s packed with secrets, hints and Easter eggs. And if you’ve got absolutely no idea what’s going on? Well, we have you covered to as we take a deep dive into the…
Following the briefest of glimpses earlier, it looks like we’re going to get a lot of teases for Duncan Jones’ Warcraft movie between now and Friday’s trailer. Although we’ve had the chance to already fly over the film’s recreation of the Human capital Stormwind City, this latest look at it is simply remarkable.
EA just released a new trailer for their upcoming Star Wars game, and it looks amazing. Well, we already thought it did—but if you didn’t know Battlefront was a video game, this just looks like a crazy Star Wars trailer. Boba Fett! Leia! The Emperor! Oh, this looks fun. Battlefront will be out November 17th.
It’s been nearly two years since the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. With dozens of software updates and a price drop, choosing between the two is much harder than it was in 2013. So, we decided it was high time to compare them now that they’ve hit their stride.
Tearing through your town in a full-size replica of the tank-like Batmobile that Batman drives in the Arkham Knight game is sure to get you pulled over in no time. But a smaller go-kart version of that same Batmobile? Your local police might just ask to take it for a spin.
One repeated bit of praise for the cartoon sci-fi platforming game series Ratchet & Clank was that they (almost) looked like animated movies that you could actually play. So it’s no surprise that when you take the franchise and turn it into a movie, it already looks pretty damn fun.
The next time a pillow fight breaks out at a sleepover, don’t bother reaching for a heavy feather-filled cushion. No, if you truly want to dominate the battle, make sure you have this Street Fighter Ryu Hadoken Fire Ball cushion in your stuffed arsenal.
Outside of my work here on io9, I tend to live and breathe two things: video games and Star Wars. Naturally, Star Wars games are right up my alley, and I was excited to try out the beta for the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront this past week. I wasn’t expecting, however, for it to make me feel like I was actually part…
