Dota 2 Dagon and You is the funniest Dota 2 video I've seen all day. It's all about a powerful weapon in Dota 2 called the Dagon, that zaps enemies for a minimum of 400 damage and you can upgrade it so it deals even more. Unfortunately, most players use the item to steal kills from their teammates which normally is frustrating beyond comprehension, but in this context it's absolutely hysterical.

Note: This video contains some NSFW language.
 



Always remember the third step.

Game Of Thrones Fighting Game Fan Art Part Two: Tyrion Vs. Cersei

Earlier in April we featured some fantastic Game of Thrones fighting game fan art from artist Dynamaito. Well, he's back again and this time the lion cubs Tyrion and Cersei Lannister are at it again. Of course, Tyrion can't fight his sister himself so his trusty sellsword Bronn's shown doing the dirty work himself. You can check out a bigger version over at Dynamaito's website.

I've had word from Dynamaito and he's said that Daenerys is next up in the roster for this ongoing series. It'll be interesting to see who she's fighting against, but no matter what I'm sure the finished product will look great.

YouTube user Morphinapg took the cut-scenes and gameplay from the Uncharted games and compiled them into three separate, feature-length movies. I've been watching the first one (Drake's Fortune) for half an hour, and it's just amazing.

Check out all three films down below.. and beware the spoilers:

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Heat Maps Are Incredibly Interesting

Valve has released some incredibly interesting heat maps from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta, showing where hundreds of thousands of players chose to fire off their weapons. The heat map above shows a portion of the firing locations for 6.5 million bullets on the de_train map.

"A straightforward way to visualize the data we collect is through heat maps. Heat maps can reveal player preferences, choke-points in maps, sight-lines for snipers, and much more," said Valve.

According to the developer, they track nearly every player action, from individual bullets fired to weapon purchases, and all that information helps them to make better design decisions. You can head over to the CS: GO blog to check out more CS: GO de_train heat maps, including ones for Sniper Rifles, Assault Rifles, Terrorist, and Counter-Terrorist positions.

Final Fantasy 7's walled city of Midgar has been completely re-created in Minecraft (via Kotaku). The level of detail here is staggeringly impressive. Longtime fans of this enduringly popular entry in the Final Fantasy series will certainly recognize many of the locations the camera flies by in the above video.

That's all I've got. Watch the video and be amazed. Click the little YouTube icon to visit the video page and check out the info section for a link to download the map.

Today, the great Ridley Scott released a viral video for his upcoming film Prometheus. The prequel to Alien looks pretty stunning, I think you'll agree. Still, though, I couldn't help thinking that "Happy Birthday David" is similar to "Kara," the recently released tech demo video from game-maker David Cage. The cultural collective unconscious works in strange and wonderful ways, right?

I've embedded both videos below for your comparison pleasure.

Do you think it would be stupid if video games were real? If video games were real, we could hang out with girls who have huge boobs and kick alien ass, ride on Chocobos, save our progress via typewriters, and more. Check out this video from Smosh about how stupid they think it would be if video games were real, but I think it'd be kinda cool.

Care to play a round of video game inspired minigolf? Well you're not alone. Tom Scott and his friends, hackers, "makers," and gamers, decided to make their own miniature gold course with video game inspired holes. Minecraft, Portal and The Crystal Maze were just some of the games to make an appearance.

If you happen to live in the UK, you'll be able to head to the Derby Maker Faire on June 3rd.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the best game ever, has been recreated in musical form. JAZZ HANDS! The video combines images from the game with 8-bit characters for a unique take on the best game in history. You thought speed running through OoT in 23 minutes was impressive? Prepare to go through the entire plot in just under 4 minutes.

If you agree with me that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is the best game ever, then vote for it in our Videogame Deathmatch so Planescape: Torment doesn't win.

Hologram Tupac Shakur played at Coachella last night, as part of Dr. Dre's set at the music festival. Um... hello, this is the most awesome thing I have ever seen. 

What do you think? Awesome or what? I'm not sure what kind of technology it takes to do something like this, but it's definitively amazing, and feels closer to sorcery to me than anything else. It's also NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

North Korean Tractor Simulator Is Our Nugget From The Net

The photo above is of a North Korean tractor simulator that I want in my house. It comes from Samjiyon Schoolchildrens' Palace in Samjiyon, North Korea, and the photo was taken by Associated Press photographer David Guttenfelder.  I saw it on Kotaku.

North Korea may succeed at creating awesome, steampunk tractor simulators, but they suck at making rockets. Their recent test firing blew up soon after launch.

I'm fascinated with North Korea's relationship with technology and video games. Like, for instance, take a second to check out this North Korean arcade: It's a chilling vision of what a communist world might look like.

 

 

You might not instantly recognize the name D.C. Douglas, but you're almost certainly familiar with his voice if you've played Mass Effect 2/3 or Resident Evil 5. He's the friendly Geth known as Legion in the former and the not-so-friendly Umbrella stooge Albert Wesker in the latter. He's done with both characters now as far as he knows, and he's cooked up a cool mash-up video to bid them farewell (via Joystiq).

I mean, really... a Legion/Wesker union would probably not work out too well. The Geth may be a killing robot, but he's very familiar with the threat posed by the Reapers and their armies of zombie-like Husks. Wesker's love for B.O.W.s would probably put a strain on their partnership.

Here's a heartwarming story for you: nine-year-old Caine Monroy, who created his own cardboard arcade, called Caine's Arcade, over the span of a year out of boxes in his dad's auto part store has been given the chance for a bright future thanks to Los Angeles filmmaker Nirvan Mullick.

"About a month ago, I went to East LA to score a used door handle for my '96 Corolla. I pulled into a used auto parts store on Mission, and stumbled across a mysterious cardboard arcade built by a 9 year old kid named Caine," said Mullick via a post on Reddit. "He had used boxes from his dad's store to build it, and had also set up a cardboard display of prizes you could win."

"I started asking Caine about his games. He explained that for $1 I could get 4 turns, or for $2 I could get a Fun Pass and 500 turns. I got the fun pass." he said.

After learning more about the Arcade and Caine, Mullick went on to create a heartwarming film about Caine's Arcade and even went so far as to organize a flashmob to surprise the boy. Check out the full film below.


The film and the story itself got so much attention that Mullick went on to create a scholarship fund for Caine, saying, "Imagine what this kid could build with an Engineering degree!" Mullick's original goal of $25k for the fund was easily surpassed, and now he's trying to raise $100k to pay for all four years of Caine's college education. As of this writing they've raised a whopping $86k! You can donate over on the Caine's Arcade website.

Congratulations Tim Hijlkema, your video game planets animated quiz is the most creative thing I've seen all day (it's only 11 AM but I'm pretty sure I won't see anything as cool until at least tomorrow). In the video, Tim animates 20 video game "planets". Watch it, and then after the break I've posted the list of all the titles featured. See how many you can guess without looking at the answers!
