There are certain combinations that are simply made for each other and we just don't know it. Until someone, in this case, animator James Farr, makes that all important (and supremely obvious, but only after the fact) connection for us.

Like, say, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossed with the Mario Bros. Okay, they both involved turtles, but how would that work exactly? After all, aren't the turtles that Mario usually deals with evil?

And that's precisely why "Teenage Mutant Ninja Koopas" is so brilliant.

With a ticking clock counting down the end of the world, and the return of a hero from the distant past--will hair care still be extreme in "Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII?"

One of the best things about Kickstarter is how it services certain genres that have been long ignored by major publishers. Just ask any adventure game fan, who once upon a time felt like a neglected step child, how happy he or she is these days.

Still, there are certain fans that are not being catered towards. Like those who dig "Earthbound". Sure, Nintendo finally released the thing on the Wii U Virtual Console, but other than an unofficially fan translated sequel, there's not much else for said folk to chew on.

And that's where "Citizens of Earth" comes in.

Edyns_Escape_Hellraid_1.071637

At some point, something's probably going to kill you in this choose-your-path trailer for Techland's "Hellraid."

It's a clever gimmick, but needs a little work here: interactive "Hellraid" prequel trailer "Edyn's Escape" is set a week before the events of the upcoming game, placing you in the role of doomed monk Edyn as he attempts to avoid the forces of darkness and imminent death in a monastery full of monsters. Unfortunately, it feels like one of those choose your own adventure books where you didn't have any clues as to what was coming next, leading to frequent, frustrating deaths.

We've seen plenty of examples as to why the Oculus Rift is seriously the next big step in video games. Yet, no matter how varied the demos, they've all had one single thread in common: they were all PC games.

Or at the very least, none of them hailed from consoles originally. Well, as it turns out, console games look pretty awesome with the VR headset as well.
