Since last week was mildly depressing, today we’re going to focus on the funny. After the break I have a lovely mashup video that brings together Super Mario and Ghostbusters — I can’t believe that hasn’t been done already — a Christopher Walkenthrough of BioShock Infinite, and a super secret video. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.
If you’ve ever had an eight hour Super Mario Brothers marathon and found yourself thinking about what a survival horror Mario game would look like, then wonder no more, because I’m about to do two things for you. The first thing I’m offering is an answer to that burning question, and the second is the distinct possibility of a couple months worth of nightmares. What I have waiting for you in the dark recesses of this post is some fan art by Deviant Art user Shadow-Shana. It’s amazing, and terrifying, but mostly amazing. Check it out!
Have we been slamming you with enough lists over the past several days? No? GOOD! Here’s another one for ya!
Now, you should know that I’ve seen more music videos this year than I had well balanced meals. Seriously, I’m watching them constantly. It can get pretty hectic and insane trying to remember many of them but, just like with any other medium, there are ones that stand out and become something incredibly important: they become memorable. And with that in mind, I want to share with you my Top 10 Music Videos Of 2012! Head on below to check ‘em out! READ MORE

It’s easy to escape disturbing imagery. You just close your eyes. In an instant, the offending blight on your vision disappears. Traces may well remain in the shelter of your eyelids, but for the moment you’re in the clear. A haunting melody, however, lingers with you long after you scramble to turn down the volume. Like a bright, cheery pop song on the radio that worms its way into your psyche, so too do the unsettling notes wafting from your speakers. Dissonant chords that seep into your very being and hallucinatory auditory effects play important roles in horror, as you’re no doubt already aware. After all, aren’t the things you hear much scarier than the things you’re seeing in the dark?
It’s easier to explain away bizarre visuals, but much harder to explain away what you’ve heard. That’s why music is such a powerful tool when it comes to setting an appropriate mood, in horror and otherwise. Even when you think you’re safe from the chills that run down your spine after being forced to listen to some painfully atmospheric soundtrack cuts, a few key notes arise in the back of your mind to plague you once again. But some are definitely a little worse than others. Here are ten genuinely disturbing cuts from various games, horror and otherwise, that you might want to listen to with the lights on, or chase with some Carly Rae Jepsen. READ MORE
Come the end of this year, Mario is back on the Nintendo 3DS. The new Super Mario looks about as close as you can get to Super Mario 64 (My personal fave). The game is (obviously) a 3D platformer, however the real 3D is supposed to help the gamer make their way through the game. Basically helping the gamer make hard jumps from platform to platform by being able to better judge the depth. Anyone who has played through Mario 64 knows how insane hard a lot of the platform jumping was.
There’s going to be a few new enemies, new costumes for Mario, new moves, it’s looking pretty awesome. Check out what I mean by looking at the screens past the break. READ MORE
