404ing It

ANNOUNCEMENT: 

For the very first time, 404ing It: Breaking (Down) the Internet will head to the West Coast! On August 31st at 7:30pm, you’ll be able to see myself, Alex Navarro (Giant Bomb), Eric Pope (Harmonix), Maya Kramer (Indie PR), and Brad Muir (Double Fine) at PAX Prime in the Hedgehog Theatre! The panel will be live streamed as well as archived!

In this Spider-Man game, you had to do alot of quick time button presses.

If you didn’t do it right, things would go VERY poorly. 

My next show will be in August! More details SOON!

Mike Drucker has been a guest 4 times! Last Friday Mike talked about his favorite moments in video games. He brought 3 videos. I’ll like two below, and show the last video in another post.
Luigi Death Stare is the best part of Mario Kart 8.
In Battlefield 3, you can get out of jet, hit another jet with a rocket, and get back into your jet.

Fenton.

Watch this whole thing. You need to know that Fenton is a dog. Fenton is about to do an amazing/terrible thing.

Thank you Ken Beck for sharing this with me.

Ken Beck is an improviser and sketch comedian at UCB, and a great dude! He sent me so many videos. I’m going to list 3 of them here, and embed another separately because it is amazing and needs a bit of context. 
Note- Ken and I know nothing about these videos except they are great. 
Garbage Day.

It’s Gonna Be Hot

Jessica has been making crazy videos using My Talking Pet. This is a prime example of such insanity. 

Jessica Morgan is an improviser and an actress. She is currently obsessed with the app My Talking Pet.  With it, you can add a voice and limited movement to a photo of an animal.
Here’s is an example. Someone made this for Ellen.

Here’s something totally random for your viewing pleasure.

That last video may have been fake, but this is all too real. This man is a genius, and the song choice is perfect. 

"Japanese Doctor Who"

What if, in 1979, the BBC licensed the Doctor Who brand out to Japan? Well, you’d get a mix of classic Doctor Who and Kamen Rider. Of course, this isn’t a real show. It’s a short by British filmmaker Joshua Kahan, but it feels real. The blue screen at the front, the special effect, even the translation FEELS like a Japanese company (licensed or not) made their own Doctor Who show. 

(This video was from a segment last week called RANDOM, where I show things I think are cool but don’t fit into a particular category. And I’ll be the first person to admit I thought this was real at the time).
