Bomberman movie trailer makes rollerskates awesome again

We always knew there was more to Bomberman than his round, antennaed visage could possibly show. The Game Station -- the minds behind the equally revealing Brothers Mario machinima -- have lovingly crafted a live-action take on Hudson Soft's age-old franchise.

Mortal Kombat secret character tryouts may disturb you

The Machinima clip posted after the jump is, in many ways, deplorable.

Toby "Tobuscus" Turner's literal adaptations of trailers are both hilarious and impressive. His latest effort is no different: a Dead Space 2 TV ad combining his parodying skills with the ad's song, Smashing Pumpkins' 1995 hit, "Bullet with Butterfly Wings."...

Mega64 tickles Dracula's rib with Simon's Quest parody

As Castlevania: Lords of Shadow approaches, Mega64 celebrates the series with a tribute to the crystal-tradingest, corpse-huntingest game in the series, Simon's Quest. The "villagers" are as incomprehensible in real life as in the game, but one "extra" still manages to steal the show....
