Video: Nudity in Dead Island? (NSFW)

Tsk, tsk. The ends little boys will go to for a brief glimpse of some video game zombie vajayjay.

(Btw, skip forward to 1:55 to get to the good stuff.)

Video: Tetris "recreated" in Minecraft

Someday someone is going to post a video of someone actually playing Minecraft and not just recreating games from his or her childhood. That said, this is pretty impressive. It is done is stop motion—the Tetris field is not a real game but footage of a simulated game—and given the sheer effort it would take to pull something like that off, it is worthy of at least a look.

Video: Conan--Gears of War 3 has lost its masculinity

Conan O'Brien is very concerned about the industry's shift towards non-violence. Gear of War 3 is just another sad example.

Video: Yoshi's Island nursery and baby mobile

Do you love your baby and Baby Mario and Yoshi? Then show it by decorating his or her bedroom as an homage to one of Nintendo's best platformers.

Video: Portal: No Escape short film

The world of Portal seems to be as compelling a place for movie makers to lose themselves in as it is for gamers. This is the second Portal short film I've seen this year that could only be described as a jaw-dropping accomplishment. The other seems a bit more light-hearted, but both capture Portal superbly. This particular short film is even more extraordinary when you consider how it was made.

Video: Donkey Kong doesn't back down

This explains where Mario got the super human strength that he has possessed since Super Mario 64. We all thought it odd that Mario could all of a sudden pick up a giant monster like King Bowser and toss him around like a sack of mushrooms. That could only result from hours spent in the gyms building his lats and such dedication would only stem from a humiliation like this one.

Video: Super Mario Bros. on the sidewalks of Germany

Artist Andreas Heikaus created this video as part of his Bachelor thesis at University. Combining CG with live-action footage, Heikaus takes the world of Super Mario Bros. and throws it onto the sidewalks of (presumably) Hannover, Germany. You don't have to look very long to see it how clever it is.

Video: Mega Man made better with the Portal Gun

Apparently everything is better with a Portal Gun.

Video: Angry birds and pigs bond over Seal

Now I really hate Angry Birds!

Video: A Link to the Past with a Portal gun

Perhaps Nintendo should take a hint from this little video. The Legend of Zelda is getting stale with all of its mainstays like boomerangs, hookshots and bows and arrows. With Skyward Sword on the horizon and exciting mainly the hardcore Zelda fan, Nintendo should consider something radical and new for the next sequel. A portal-making gun may be too futuristic, but how about a portal-making mirror? Oh wait...
