On Wednesday, Day 0 of Gen Con, Trevor Kidd (community manager for Wizards of the Coast) gave us an opportunity to play in the Castle Ravenloft cooperative board game being released in the next few weeks. Trevor asked Bartoneus and I to help him do an unboxing video of all the components, so we’re posting the video (in two parts) below. Enjoy and let us know if you have any questions about it.
How are the blocks chosen in Tetris? If you said some kind of random generation, you’re wrong. Next time you play, make sure you pray to the God of Tetris.
OK, taking on Star Wars: Episode 1 is like killing trade droids with a lightsaber: no challenge at all. What is a challenge is doing a 70 minute complete deconstruction of the movie, completely eviscerating it from both a critical and emotional standpoint, and making it completely hilarious in the process. Plus, there’s random digressions, a completely bizarre narrator, and a startling basement scene that you won’t see in an Ebert review. Well worth watching: the first part embedded here, the other 6 parts linked after the jump.
Animated trailer for EN Publishing’s War of the Burning Sky adventure path, spanning all levels, available for both 3.5e and 4e D&D. Pretty cool teaser, and besides, how often do you get to see a trailer for D&D adventures?
A pivotal scene in the Matrix, recreated in stop-motion with Legos.
Extreme tourism enthusiasts should go to the Dagobah system.
Not especially related to games, but I just can’t stop watching The Muppets do Bohemian Rhapsody, and thus needed to share.
A Russian-made, silent-film version of The Matrix starring Charlie Chaplin.
As much as I would love to see last week’s video, the brilliant Googled, stick around, this past week has been particularly prolific as far as awesome YouTubes go, and so we press on! For this week, I present to you the mind-shattering(-ly cute) tale of Lil’ Ctuhlhu.
Because I’m so excited that it’s finally been released to the public, I present to you “Googled”, a short film based on one of my short stories that previously appeared in the Welter literary journal. Even though I wrote it, I still get chills at the end. I hope you enjoy it.
