Dead Island: Riptide's fake rap video stars real artist Chamillionaire

Dead Island is famous for having arguably the most dramatic, memorable advertisement of 2011, with its backward, slow-mo gore fest featuring an undead child. With Dead Island: Riptide, the marketing team is taking a decidedly different approach: They've decided on "No Room in Hell," a rap music...

Joystiq Original Hip-hop: Welcome Back (To The Stage of History)

Anyone who's listened to my long, incoherent rambles on The Joystiq Show knows that I love fighting games more than most things that exist. What you may not know, however, is that my love for a good combo is rivaled only by my desire to spit sick verses over fly jams. So, when Joystiq's Alexander...

Sword and Sworcery LP sampled by Lil Wayne

If you're a human being with ears and a heart, we're going to assume you loved Sword and Sworcery EP just as much as you loved Sword and Sworcery LP - The Ballad of the Space Babies, its ethereal, lovely soundtrack. Know what? We're going to go out on a limb and also assume that you love Lil...

The Birds and the Beedrills puts a mature spin on the Pokerap

There's no real way to ease into this, so: A rapper by the pseudonym White Licorice has painstakingly crafted a track titled "The Birds and the Beedrills." Its innuendo-filled lyrics contain references to all 151 Pokémon from the series' first generation. It is, in no small measure, a...

We can't rap our minds around the latest 3D Dot Game Heroes trailer

Without the proper prior information, the 3D Dot Game Heroes trailer posted above would seem like a rare miss for Atlus' clever marketing machine. After all, it features a fairly horrific rap about some of the game's bonus modes, most of which have been shoehorned into an incredibly awkward rhyme...

'Those Minerals' laments Mass Effect 2 probing in a hip-hop fashion

We frequently tried to find ways to keep ourselves occupied during the days we spent probing planets for precious, precious minerals in Mass Effect 2, but largely came up empty-handed. You can only scan Uranus so many times before it loses its comedic value, you know? If only we'd followed the cue...

Swedish rapper Pato Pooh asks you to follow him into the old school

Adding himself to the short list of things we associate with Sweden other than Volvo, Ikea, and delicious meatballs, Stockholm's Pato Pooh recently released a music video for his song "Follow Me." It features a regular who's who of 8- and 16-bit era gaming in the process, referencing everything...

Midnight movie: The Mega Man rap

Thanks for sticking with us throughout the day. We know how hard Mondays can be, so we thought you might appreciate this totally not safe for work Mega Man 2 rap by The Adventures of Duane and Brando. It's hilarious, addictive and even gives you helpful tips for the next time you play through the...

The Best Thing You'll See Today: DJ I-Dee's 8-bit music video

We don't claim to know much about music here at Joystiq (our long-time favorite band is Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters) but we do know what warms us to our very cockles. That's exactly the effect achieved by DJ I-Dee's new video, "Swollen Dome/1991," which features more references to...
