As we learned in American Psycho, serial killer Patrick Bateman had a rigorous morning routine. Me? I just slap some water on my naughty bits, find the least odorous clothes out of some dark corner of my apartment, and I’m ready to go. It looks like Raiden from the Metal Gear series, and most recently Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, has a similarly detailed routine. Youtuber Freddie Wong does an amazing job of recreating that unforgettable scene with Metal Gear Sunrising, which you can watch after the break. READ MORE

In Dead Island you can strap a battery to a blade weapon to give it sizzling electrical power. The Old Smokey is my favorite weapon in the game and you could tell I was using it because I left nothing but charred and dismembered zombie corpses in my wake. Now, someone has actually made something closely resembling that weapon by strapping a taser to a double bladed sword. It looks intensely badass, but it’s practical too. When its charge is low, just plug it into a wall outlet to give it some extra zombie-killing, or in this case, shirtless guy-zapping power. More after the break! READ MORE
There is a channel on YouTube called ExpertVillage that offers tons of videos on various subjects, from exercise to diet to animals to whatever. Included there is guitar instructor (and I use that term quite loosely) Cliff Greenberg. He has posted a few videos offering “guitar instruction” but none are as revealing as his lesson on “How To Make A Thicker Guitar Sound”. It is, without a doubt, one of the absolute worst instructional videos I’ve ever seen.
He gives three tips: 1) Max out your volume pot. 2) Max out your tone pot. 3) Play closer to the neck. Thanks Cliff, I’ll make sure to keep that in mind.
If you’ve often said to yourself “Well I really love to play Minecraft, but the water. I just can’t deal with it!” Well, someone simply known as Sonic Ether likes to mess around with shaders and likes to mod Minecraft. In the video below you can see what he has done with the otherwise very grainy looking normal Minecraft water. It looks like it is straight out of a next generation video game. It really makes the entire game look so much more awesome. I need to start Mining the PC asap.
I’ve said it before, but I’ve become quite the advocator for You Tube. I subscribe to an unholy amount of channels, and Corridor Digital is one of my favorite. These guys on many occasions post incredible videos a lot of the time relating to video games. The one you can check out below is an incredible real life trip into the land of Minecraft. If you like the video check out the 1st Minecraft vid they did past the break and make sure you check out their other videos.
Funded entirely from Kickstarter, Video Game High School is an all new 9 episode web series from the masterminds behind the YouTube channel FreddieW. Another perfect example that you don’t need huge fancy Hollywood studios and millions and millions of dollars to make an awesome series or movies. VGHS has a lot of familiar YouTube stars you YouTube enthusiasts might recognize along with other actors and actresses. Head past the break for a breakdown of the show, but make sure you check it out below. If you like it, check out episode 2 HERE!
Once you’ve spent enough time in the blocky world of Minecraft or one of its many clones, you start wondering what it’d be like to live in a world like that. It’s deceptively cute, thanks to its colorful, retro aesthetic, but when you really think about it, Minecraft is a thoroughly terrifying game. On the surface it’s a creative open-world game that lets you build whatever you want, limited only by your imagination, but beneath that charming surface lies a horror more terrifying than even the scariest of clowns. Head past the break for a look into this world of pure horror. READ MORE
I’ve become a Youtube slut. Meaning I started subscribing to tons of Youtube channels and I have a plethora of videos to watch at all times. One guy I subscribe to, KevJumba made this awesome trailer which you can watch below. It’s a Sci-Fi esq video game inspired trailer which looks to be leading up to a longer short film. Check it out!
We just saw the live action MASS EFFECT TRAILER. It’s awesome. The video below is a “fan” film made by director Dan Trachtenberg. Podcast fans might know him from The Totally Rad Show podcast. It came out back in August, but I just saw it for the 1st time and thought I’d share it with you guys. Another great example that shows us good video game movies are possible.
If you are like me, you love dual joysticks. It was pretty stupid foolish of Nintendo to release the 3DS with only 1 stick, but they have almost always been a 1 stick kind of company. Also, playing a game like Resident Evil Revelations on the 3DS can be quite the challenge. But now, there is the 3DS Circle Pad Pro you can get exclusively from Gamestop. The Pro only costs 20 dollars, so it’s not a major hit to your wallet, and can really help your gaming situation.
I know if I ever end up getting a 3DS, this will be purchased right along side it. I will also be mailing Nintendo a punch in the mouth for not already having dial sticks on it. READ MORE
No Time To Explain immediately caught my eye when I saw it’s 1st trailer. It should be out on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this summer. I’m pretty damn excited about it, cause it looks like crazy old school Nintendo platforming fun. Check out some actual game play below.
Porcupine Tree is easily in my top three favorite bands. I remember buying ‘In Absentia‘ and playing ‘Trains‘ around 20 times before I went to the next track because it was, and still is, such an amazing and beautiful track. So imagine my surprise and delight when I saw a video of 40 YouTube users playing ‘Trains‘ mashed together into one cohesive piece. Just like Eric Whitacre’s YouTube Choir, these people come from all over the world. Enjoy below.
The game No Time To Explain already holds a special place in my heart. Why? Watch the video below.
No Time To Explain is a side scrolling platformer that includes, you, you from the future, you from the past, huge crabs, spaceships, sharks, it just looks like way too much fun. Look out for the game this summer, unannounced but most likely on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. Look closely at the beginning of the video, i think he is dancing and playing on the Kinect. READ MORE
YouTube is a rather magical place if you stop and think about it. It’s a portal where people can share untold amounts of creativity with the rest of the world without having to go through “proper” channels. People share their music, their films, their hopes and dreams, baring themselves entirely, leaving themselves naked to those who view their video. It takes a great amount of courage and hope to post something that is near and dear to your soul in the hopes that someone, somewhere, will connect with you.
One of the success stories of YouTube is musician Ronald Jenkees (YouTube channel). If you were to base your opinion of the guy on looks alone, you’d be very quick to change videos. I’m not trying to be a dick, but the guy looks like a hobbit. However, if you were to take a moment to give him a chance to share his music with you, you might be astonished. The guy is an incredible keyboard player who not only creates some truly mesmerizing tunes but looks so joyful while he plays. Doing this brings him the utmost pleasure in life. Below is my personal favorite, “Guitar Sound”.
Check after the jump for a link to a cover of “Guitar Sound” that is pretty damn badass!
I forgot that Kiel (Podcasting partner) showed me this last fall, it’s pretty amazing. These guys made it in their garage and it took them about 18 months. Check it out.
I’m kind of actually picturing this being turned into some incredible horror video game. Where you get into this time machine and are taken to these insane horrible places back and forth in time, just trying to get home. Kind of like a horror version of Sliders. OH MY GOD YES! I just blew my own mind. I’m claiming this my idea right here and right now as my own and if someone makes a game about it I want in on the ground floor. READ MORE
You know what your day is lacking right now? It’s missing a potent dose of video game action that only the official Dead Pixels youtube channel can remedy. Our goal is to have more subscribers then Fred by the end of the year, because no one with a voice like that deserves so many subscribers.
You might be asking yourself why you would need to check out our channel when you already devote hours of your day keeping up to date on everything TJ and I write about with an almost religious vigor. But even the most passionate of our fans aren’t necessarily getting their recommended daily dose of Dead Pixels, which means there’s always room for more. On top of that there’s a plethora of trailers, teasers, gameplay videos and more on our channel that don’t get covered here. So why don’t you add some more Dead Pixels to your day and if you’re feeling extra generous you could show your endless love and devotion by subscribing. It’s what Santa would want you to do.
