Let not the bubblegummy popness of LeetStreet Boys' "Yuri The Only One" warp your mind with its clever lyrics and visuals. Even though it's a parody on anime and video games, it's probably best to prepare an insulin shot before listening to catchy saccharin lyrics like, "Yuri the only one for me, Yo...

At long last, someone has found a way to update the "RIck Roll" phenomenon in such a way that we could post about it on Joystiq. Of course, we could have tricked you with a headline like "Check out the best Audiosurf play evar!," but that'd just be cruel. Instead, we'll give you the tools for succe...

Although you might be feeling a Spore overload as of late, we thought it'd be fun to take a moment and look back at Spore from GDC 2005, three years ago, and see how the game looked then. After the break, footage from the unveiling. We've also embedded The Powers of Ten, a 1977 short film documentar...

Exactly one year ago, the BBPS gang tried to use Tecmo Bowl to predict the Super Bowl champs. The game simulation picked the Bears (yeah, that was wrong). This year, Madden 08 picked Tom Brady's New England Patriots as the winning time for Super Bowl XLII, but what does Tecmo Bowl say? ArmChairGM ra...

Ubisoft's Haze may be afflicted with perpetual delays, but the footage we've seen is still impressive enough to keep us interested.

It's been a week since Fox News ran a largely ignorant news segment on the the brief, minor and optional sex scene found in Mass Effect. The crew of Loading.Ready.Run have produced a satire of the news segment for our enjoyment. All the important interview tactics are present, from the gaming suppor...

There's something eerily familiar about watching this gameplay footage for Lost: Via Domus. Maybe it's Charlie running past your character on the plane, the subsequent crash, the tail that almost crushes Hurley. From the good digitization of Ben to the bad digitization of bearded Mr Friendly, the v...
