Battlefield, Call of Duty, TF2, Halo, Mass Effect, James Bond, Half-Life 2, Mario Kart… Have those ever been in a video together before? No? Well why not?! This video highlights the brilliant instakills through modern gaming history. I absolutely love this video for it’s simplicity and awesomeness. Huge props to Corridor Digital for making yet another great video. Click to watch.
In this short film created by YouTuber RockyPlanetesimal, we see many of our favorite platforming characters doing the one thing they’re all designed to do… go right. It’s really that simple but the music, the way it’s filmed and edited, the showcasing of the small pixels blown up to massive proportions. It’s all beautiful and it might even say something about gaming and life. Or I could be looking into it too much. Click to watch.
Sonic & All Stars Racing was actually a really solid kart racer that borrowed some of the best mechanics from Mario Kart but of course added a Sonic twist with more unique levels, carts and more. I actually prefer it to the Wii Mario Kart game. Now we’re getting a sequel with a really great mechanic of transforming for different environments. Karts will become boats and jets depending on when it’s necessary. Pretty sweet. Oh and there’s Dubstep. Dubstep is always good. Click to watch Sonic rock out to dubstep at a million miles an more.

The 8-Bit Builder, Richard Clinton has made a PC Case mod out of wooden blocks that’s shaped like the Legend of Zelda hero Link. With light up sword intact, the creation of this case mode can be seen from start to finish. Small wooden blocks were glued together 1 by 1 until finally a sturdy frame was in place. Add wiring, PC components and you’ve got yourself a handsome little PC. What do you guys think of it? Check out his Facebook Page and Etsy shop. Click to watch the creation in video form.
I love Young Justice. I think it’s one of the best animated series on today and I’m really sad that season 1 was so short and that it was broken up with months and months between new episodes. Hopefully Season 2 won’t be that way. But now a small developer called Little Orbit is going to make an multiplayer RPG based on the show. The problem is… Little Orbit’s only previous game is called Busy Scissors and it looks fucking terrible. Taking on one of the better TV franchises is a big task and our expectations for this title are low. more details after the jump.
We have a strong love for Totally Lame Robot here at The72Pins. We think she’s fantastic, has done some amazing mods in the past and now she wants to share all her amazing skills with YOU! This volume one in what is sure to be a very in depth, multi-part video series to help you become a better modder. I myself am going to take what she has to offer here and try to make my own modded cast in the near future… or at the very least attempt it, fail, beg her to do it for me, and then show it off like I’m a complete modding bad ass. So strap in boys and girls and watch this introduction to being less of a case modding noob. Click to watch the video.
If you told me two months ago that I was going to spend over 45 hours in Skyward Sword in less than a week and have a hell of a time doing so, I would have said you’re out of your mind. I absolutely hated the demo I played back at PAX and even considered it the worst thing I played at the entire show. The controls were awful, the graphics looked like garbage, and it just wasn’t any fun at all. It makes me wonder why Nintendo chose to showcase those particular areas, considering the rest of the game is one of the best Zelda adventures I’ve ever played.
Nintendo’s got news, and President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime is here to tell you about it. Be warned, if you’re looking for action packed trailers of Nintendo games, this video is not for you. If you want to stare at a guy’s face for seven minutes, watch this immediately. And if all you care about is the news, here’s the gist of it:
3D video recording is coming to the 3DS next month, along with new puzzles for street pass, Find Me 2, and a street pass map. Mario Kart 7 (also coming next month) will support 8 player races online, and of course runs at a smooth 60fps. It’ll have street pass support, Mii support, and ghost data support, which means that all around it’s going to be a pretty kick ass game.
Now go watch the video, and skip about halfway through if you want to see the (very) small portion filled with actual gameplay footage. Click through and watch.
That bulky add on is coming soon to Japan on December 10th (which means an American release can’t be far away) for the low price of 1500 Yen (roughly 20 bucks). It will thankfully be supported by some of the games that really need it like: Monster Hunter, Resident Evil: Revelations, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, and Kingdom Hearts 3D. Unfortunately, the slidepad attachment will also be supported by a battery, rather than the 3DS itself which means two things: It won’t add any extra battery life to the 3DS, and this damn thing will now need even more battery power to run.
