Although Kevin Pereira did a hell of an interview with Breckin Meyer about his new, legal dramedy Franklin & Bash, there's no one more qualified to interview Breckin Meyer than his own brother, G4 staffer and the producer of Fresh Ink Online Frank Meyer. AOTB got the brothers Meyer to sit down for an exclusive, not to mention hilarious, bro-on-bro interview and you'd be depriving yourself if you didn't check it out right now! Warning: awkward moments and familial bitterness contained within!
Are you following Mission Icefly, the latest Alternate Reality Game from 42 Entertainment? You should be. Why? Well, if the fact that they produced I Love Bees for Halo 2, the Year Zero game for Nine Inch Nails and last year’s über-popular Flynn Lives ARG for Tron Legacy isn’t enough to convince you, maybe the mystery surrounding this latest production will. We’ve even got an exclusive video you won’t find anywhere else!
The ARG launched a couple months back as Test Subjects Needed and The Human Preservation Proejct, where you could take an online “assessment test” but over the past few weeks has evolved to include something called Mission Icefly. They dropped tons of paper helicopters with glowing LED lights over Bonnaroo, there were sightings of it at E3 and most recently a real-world scavenger hunt was held, where winners found… well, it’s really cool, so you should watch the video to see it.
There have been lots of theories as to what The Human Preservation Project/Mission Icefly is about. We’ve heard rumors of everything from chewing gum, to a new movie to even Halo 4. 42 is being tight lipped about it (trust us, we point blank asked) which makes this all the more fun. Whatever this ARG turns out to be, 42 Entertainment has scored Terry “Locke” O’Quinn for this video, so in our minds, this has got to be something interesting. We can only imagine that something must be brewing for this at San Diego Comic-Con, but again, that’s just us theorizing, since the game's latest countdown clock is running until the Friday before Comic-Con. Check out the video and then tell us what you think Mission Icefly is about in the comments!
We really are playing Mission Icefly. Talk with the author more about it on Twitter.
Those of you who were lucky enough to own a Sega Dreamcast probably spent many a night fantasizing about the sultry, purple haired star of Space Channel 5, Ulala and today your dreams have come true in the form of our Sara Underwood Ulala cosplay pics. Now, you won't be able to control Sara Undwerwood-Ulala with your d-pad, but you'll get just as much enjoyment viewing the cosplay pictures as you ever did playing Space Channel 5.

We've never considered looking to anime for wardrobe inspiration, but these Anime Expo 2011 Japanimation-Inspired outfit photos have got us thinking that the weirder the attire, the better. What about you? See anything you might like to add to your wardrobe?
We love it when people cosplay as our favorite video game characters from Mortal Kombat, Soul Calibur V, BioShock 2, Street Fighter IV, Mass Effect 2, and Assassin's Creed. It's a special delight to see cosplayers take on the roles of the heroes and villains we've spent countless, button-mashing hours admiring or trying to defeat. That's why our Anime Expo 2011 video game cosplay pictures are extra special. Seeing them is like watching the best video game ever come to life!
For cosplay lovers, Anime Expo 2011 was the place to be this past weekend. Anime Expo had more Japanimation-loving, scantily clad vixens than a typical manga has giant mechs and we've got a ton of pictures of the hottest and most original anime cosplayers to prove it! Check out our Anime Expo 2011 Cosplay Photo Gallery and see what you've been missing (or, if you're as nerdy as we think you are, see pictures of what you and your friends spent the past four or so days doing).
Walking through the G4 lobby is like strolling through the Louvre in Paris, and one of the more stunning pieces in the G4 collection of expressionist paintings is the ode to video games and technology pictured above. You'll remember it from Candace Bailey's first photo shoot as host of AOTS. Magnificent, no?

What do you do on AOTS?
I’ve done a lot in my time on AOTS, everything from writing The Feed ticker, to producing Gems of the Internet with Sarah Lane and numerous segments since then. Nowadays, I mostly just produce Around the Net, Cinema Enema and our Friday show. I also talk about dragons sometimes.
What is your favorite moment from the show?
I can’t remember past the weeks ago so I’ll have to go with Cancer Cat. I love how cool he was.
Do you have any passions outside of working at G4?
I spend a lot of time playing video games, reading, playing amateur baseball and watching the Red Sox on my iPad when not at work.
