Want to see 3,000 barrels all tumble down at once? Or be blown away in a vortex? This four-minute video might be just what you're looking for. For some reason, watching the barrel de(con)struction makes us want to upgrade our systems and play Crysis more than any trailer released for the game. It's ...

Curious how the two Orange Box versions stack up? GameVideos have put the PS3 and Xbox 360 next to each other side-by-side - literally, it's a pretty impressive split-screen effort - of Portal and Half-Life 2. In fact, the visuals look very similar. The major difference, where one might consider the...

A licensed game for The Princess Bride? Inconceivable! Yet here it is before our eyes, from inconceivably unknown developer Worldwide Biggies (a rather ironic name, come to think of it). Due out in the inconceivable year of 2008, the self-proclaimed downloadable casual title features "over 15 minut...

What is TNA? Trilateral Nuclear Abominations? Trigonometric Narcissists Association? Tits 'n' a ... ah, nevermind, it's Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. And that's just about the best explanation for the TNA Impact trailer, which debuted last night on Spike's VGAs. We're told wrestling is a very man...

Rhythm games seem to be in abundance these days, but Patapon's a little different than most. For starters, it's cute, reminiscent of the super-huggable LocoRoco. It's also not about being in a rock band, or just tapping buttons to the beat of your MP3s -- It's about war. As seen in the trail...

Remember that YouTube video with the adorable kittens that sounded like they were talking to each other, that somebody put fake subtitles on and made hilarious? Well, this is exactly like that, except instead of purrs and meowing, it's Chinese, and it features everybody's favorite console ripoff: ...

The above video demonstrates the true extent of Metroid fandom. This guy didn't just re-skin an arcade cabinet with fanart. He built the damn thing himself, and even included an illuminated Mother Brain behind a plexiglass window. That's dedication. Unfortunately, the video's not really the best ...

Are you sick of the Vii yet? Because we're not. We don't really have a clue what's being said in this 4-minute commercial, but it honestly doesn't matter. What matters are the re-used clips of the same girl playing the same game, the Vii's flying wildly through space, and the creepily voyeu...

It's a little early for Christmas, but it's always the right time for dancing video game characters! Jan3D has put together a super-short video as an early holiday gift to his/her fellow gamers. And to think that you weren't planning on getting him/her anything. Not much else to say here. Just be...

We're sure other people have done it as well, but for those aspiring electronica performers who haven't yet made the plunge, YouTube member luksy has posted a video explaining how he used a handful of programs to turn the Rock Band drum kit hooked up to a PC into a working electronic drum kit. Remem...

Don't let the name fool you: Space Invaders Extreme is more than just a gatorade-guzzling, visual upgrade to Taito's classic formula. Instead, Extreme is looking to entirely reinvent the wheel, by re-examining the pacing and structure of the original title, while infusing the game with a pulsing ...

As a concept, Kwari is unintentionally hilarious. The game's entire premise rests on luring players in with the promise of cash and prizes. Earn money every time you shoot another player in this online first-person-shooter, and lose money every time you get shot. In addition, special prizes will b...

The webisode series Street Fighter: The Later Years has been going on for quite some time, but the latest entry proves that the show's creators still have a knack for Street Fighter parody. Whether it's Dhalsim's unorthodox fighting methods, a poorly-aged Ken failing to perform his hidden fireball...

Your once-beautiful town will be overrun with weeds that you'll have to pluck one by one if you want...

Joystiq reader Flynn tipped us off to a rather bizarre, er, "glitch" in Assassin's Creed where death is just another gateway to life ... twice. Think you're seeing double? (Or quadruple if you play both videos at the same time.) Well, you're right. Enjoy the video after the break. Joystiq reader...

It seems that Katamari Damacy continues to roll on, inspiring imitators and homages long after the original title's release. This time, it seem everyone's favorite clump of souls has rolled onto cable television, with the Cartoon Network program Chowder presenting an extended Katamari-esque seque...

Maybe most humans have ceased caring about Mario and Sonic at the Olympics, especially since the whole "Sonic and Mario in the same game" draw has been severely overshadowed by Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Regardless, we were still curious to see how Mario and Sonic's first outing together woul...

Fans of real physical spaces inspired by video game logic might enjoy this ten-minute feature on Richard "Lord British" Garriott's home. He calls it "Brittania Manor" (appropriately enough), and the house has enough trap doors and hidden rooms to earn it a feature of Home & Garden's "Secret Sp...
