Cosplay: Omi Gibson as Cloe Walsh from No More Heroes

Omi Gibson is known for her stunning Metal Gear Solid cosplay photo shoots. Sometimes she takes a break and tries something else like No More Heroes. As these photos show, whatever she tackles is no less spectacular. These are just some of the Cloe Walsh pics she has posted. Be sure to take a look at her website to see the rest of them as well as her entire collection of daring and authentic cosplay shoots. You will not be disappointed.

A Boy and His Game: Papo & Yo and Vander Caballero

Now that E3 is a few weeks cold, I'd like to write a little about my personal game of the show, and the man behind it, Vander Caballero, who is inextricable from his pet project. I didn't go into the convention thinking about winners and losers, but Minority Inc.'s Papo & Yo was a definite winner for me, one that has stayed on my mind continuously since the show's end.

Video: Windows: LittleBigPlanet 2 Edition

Now they're recreating (sort of) operating systems in LittleBigPlanet 2? What's next? OS/2? Or maybe some productivity programs like MS Office or Adobe Photoshop? It doesn't sound that far-fetched.

Style Savvy Review

Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman

HIGH Witnessing customer after customer go gaga over my ensembles.

LOW Realizing that their taste was dictated almost exclusively by brand.

WTF There are two men in the whole game: One is the store owner/love interest, the other is his butler.

Video: Star Trek fanatic recreates Starship Enterprise in Minecraft

Some of you may have heard about a little game called Minecraft. It's all the rage among anyone who has always wanted to live in a real Legoland. Some of the creations have been incredibly creative. Take this guy in the video below. He has created a 1:1 scale model of the Starship Enterprise. Yes, the Starship Enterprise. At 1:1 scale.

As of the posting of this video, he was asking others to help him complete his project. Given the current nature of the video game culture (and the Internet), the Enterprise has probably since been reduced to a pile of rubble by "helpful" griefers. But that doesn't matter because proof of its existence has been recorded for prosperity.

HIGH Watching fire change its behavior because you redefined "up."

LOW Watching your body break apart for the 58th time.

WTF Bats versus lizard in an epic battle!

And Yet It Moves

With four different environments and unlockable modes, And Yet It Moves is a platformer that will provide gamers with endless challenges.

Video: Portal recreated in LittleBigPlanet 2 Beta

Can't wait for the day when someone recreates in LittleBigPlanet 3 or 4, a game that someone created for the first time in LittleBigPlanet 2.

Super Meat Boy Review

So Tasty He Doesn't Need Gravy

HIGH The hidden warp zone nods to past eras of gaming.

LOW The incredibly stiff difficulty will put off some players.

WTF Beware—anyone who can 100% this game may not actually be human.
