I’m always amazed by all of the crazy things that people have been able to do with the primitive forms in the game Minecraft. Remember the time that Minecrafta2z made a version of Pac-Man in the Minecraft engine?
We really like LEGO around here and we have seen more than a few stop motion LEGO videos over the years. My favorite video was the LEGO lumberjacks fighting dragons to the metal sound track. A new stop motion video has turned up that is geeky and is about as NSFW as a LEGO video can get.
Sure, there have been tons of Donkey Kong games on Nintendo systems over the years, but it’s been a really long time since anyone thought of making a game with the beautiful simplicity of the original arcade classic.
We like our LEGO around here, and a video has turned up that uses LEGO to create a heavy metal stop motion video of glorious righteousness. Be sure to imagine that last bit said in the voice of Jack Black for full effect.
When I played Uncharted 2, I thought it was probably the best cinematic gaming experience I ever had. The seamless transitions between scenes that would normally be dull, scripted cut-scenes and actual gaming action was truly innovative and immersive.
Ah, sex education! Thanks to this 8-bit parody, you won’t have to explain the birds and the bees to anyone. Just link to this video, and they’ll know all about safe sex.
It’s called Game On and it’s a funny and educational animation created by the Leicestershire Teenage Pregnancy Partnership in the UK.
Fellow humans, mark this month of November, 2010. For it is on this month that our great science peoples have solved one of our centuries old mysteries, a question that have kept many a stoned person up at night.
I just stumbled onto this short film starring a robot and a boombox, and it really made me smile.
The little red guy looks like one of those wind-up toys you might get over at General Robots, and the boom box is one of those classic Lasonics numbers that you might find in a 1980s rap video.
This amazing papercraft reconstruction of Star Wars was made for Jeremy Messersmith‘s song called Tatooine. It was directed and animated by Eric Power. It’s definitely a good way to end the week!
It’s actually a music video for Jeremy’s song, which is also pretty good.
This cool video was released almost two years ago, and I think that it still looks good. Actually, it looks pretty awesome! It features a bunch of guys having a lightsaber duel.
This lightsaber duel was made by Brian Curtin, Mat Powell, and Matt Hall.
A dude named foldsfive decided to recreate the entire original Star Wars trilogy in MS Paint, then converted to animated GIFs. He released his take Star Wars: A New Hope last month. This month, it’s The Empire Strikes Back‘s turn.
In a war between snowboarding and old school video games, my bet will always be on the video games. There’s just no two ways about it. Lasers will destroy snowboards and skateboards, no matter how cool you try to look.
If you’ve ever been impressed by the animation in UBIsoft ‘s games like the Rayman series, you might want to check out this nifty art and animation framework the company has built for creating animations with incredible ease.
I really like this animation by German artist Surfap – based on the classic 8-bit NES game Super Mario Bros.
I’m actually not sure how he achieved the effect, but the illusion makes it look like the game was painted on a concrete wall and sidewalk.
