Awesomesauce | Grand Theft Arthur (VIDEO)

If you’re looking for the perfect blend of #throwbackthursday nostalgia and modern video game pop culture, then look no further than “Grand Theft Arthur.”

Us gamers aren’t stranger to the crazy mods that PC players have created for Grand Theft Auto 5. I’ve seen some mind-blowing PC mods that make me wish I had skills to create hacks like that, but at least I can enjoy the genius of YouTube user Merfish (known for his GTA mods).

Merfish has recreated the opening for the classic kids show Arthur with in-game footage of Franklin and his squad in GTA5. The result? A hilarious reminder of how easy it is to take our innocent childhood shows and fuck them up in a heavy dosage of #awesomesauce…which you can’t help but to love every devilish moment.

Awesomesauce | Stop-Motion Karate (VIDEO)

The folks over at Corridor Digital have unleashed a new viral video called “Stop-Motion Karate” and it’s totally #awesomesauce.

Basically the video is a quirky story of what happens when two guys try to win a girl’s heart and duke it out kung fu style. The twist? Well, it’s shot in stop-motion style sort of like the oldschool NES game, Karateka.

Check out the visuals and be sure to peep out the behind-the-scenes footage on how this incredible stop-motion video was shot using a GoPro.

Awesomesauce | My Favorite #E32015 Trailers

I know I know, I’m super “late” when it comes to posting this, especially in the realm of social media. But hey, give a girl a break. I’ve got a busy life, a demanding career, a relationship, bills, and an adorable stubborn cat(her name is Tibby).

But somehow, in the mist of everything I’ve been dealing with, I managed to watch the live streams of #E32015 and walk away incredibly impressed by the forthcoming titles this holiday season.

If you’re like me and declare yourself an avid gamer (I’m on #teamxbox), then you already have immersed yourself in the #E3 coverage of the most anticipated games: Fallout 4, Halo 5: Guardians, Mass Effect 4, Need for Speed, and (for some) Gears of War. 

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Being the sci-fi enthusiast that I am, I’m insanely stoked about Mass Effect: Andromeda.I’ve been a huge fan of that IP (cool kid slang for “intellectual property”) since its inception. And seeing how the events unfolded in the last game, I’ve been craving to see what BioWare will amaze us with next.

If you saw the announcement trailer, then you too were beyond amazed. But if you missed the heavy dosage of awesomesauce, then experience the greatness right here:

Fallout 4

If any game were to encourage my boyfriend to get another geeky gamer tattoo (along side his badass Skyrim wrist tatt), then Fallout 4 would be the game.

Sidenote: yes, my boyfriend has a Skyrim tattoo and it’s quite the conversation starter wherever we go. Fellow geeks always comment on it, and it helped us get through several TSA checkpoints when we travelled to St. Thomas.

Anyways, before I digress any further, let’s get into Fallout 4.Wow, did you see how amazing the gameplay looks? If the trailer reveal two weeks ago wasn’t enough to amaze you, then the #E3 coverage will knock your socks off! This time around, we’ve got better graphics, enhanced weaponry, an intuitive “homestead” building feature, and more nuclear wasteland awesomesauce.

Check it out:

Can’t get enough? Then here’s the 30 minute showcase.

Halo 5: Guardians

To be honest, I never played much of the story for Halo. When I first switched from Sony to Microsoft, I got sucked into playing Gears of War and following the story (can’t help but to love Dom).

However, this next game in the Halo franchise looks incredible! It will certainly satisfy my need for a FPS (I’m over COD). But once Xbox One gets backwards compatibility, I”ll have to revisit some of the earlier games to learn more about Master Chief and the Halo  universe.

We’ve All Got a Need For Speed

Forza 6 might be the most beautiful racing game coming out this Fall, but Need For Speed is where my love for going fast begins.

I remember when my mom used to make trips to Blockbuster to rent video games for me, and she’d always bring back new games. I always played the typical shooting and adventure games, but she introduced me to racing by encouraging me to play Need for Speed. I never knew I wanted to go fast until I got my hands on that game, which is probably why I secretly dream of having the skills to be a badass driver at 120 MPH.

For now I’ll stick to driving the speed-limit (5-15 miles above), and I’ll let video games continue to fulfill my racing dreams…and after seeing the gameplay footage of the new NFS, I’m falling back in love with the idea of going fast.

#TeamXbox

There are so many great games coming out this Holiday season, and I’m enthused that backwards compatibility will allow me to play some of my oldschool Xbox favorites.

If you happen to be on Xbox, feel free to add me @thinksoul25.

Awesomesauce | BaneCat Strikes Back! (Video)

The internet is full of cat videos ranging from adorable to hilarious, but one video that truly changed the game was “BaneCat.”

Basically, a few months ago this guy decided to make a parody of Bane (you know, Batman’s nemesis,) and instead of repeating the same cliche parodies we’ve seen on the web, he decided to turn his cat into Bane.

Say hello to BaneCat. He’s difficult to understand, he’s sneaky, he’s clever, he’s an asshole, and yet he’s hilariously cute. And now, he has returned to the internet in a second episode.

Check it out. Hopefully we’ll see more of these in the future. And if not, at least we’ve got the awesomeness to enjoy for the time being.

Awesomesauce | ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Trailer #2

It was first teased on Friday that we could expect a new trailer from Marvel’s forthcoming film, Guardians of The Galaxy. Well, now the wait is over: the second trailer is making its rounds throughout the internet!

This movie is definitely one I’m looking forward to seeing. It’s been a really good month for movies, and the summer is going to be a kick-ass blockbuster season!

I was hoping to see some shots of Thanos, but overall this trailer is pretty awesome! Can’t wait for this to hit theaters August 1st.

 

 

‘Tous’ – Adventures Of A Drunk Kitty (Video)

Okay, confession time: I have never used Reddit. Why? Not sure, but it has never really appealed to my internet habits. Perhaps because it’s got a boring design to it, yet the content is so awesome! But eh, just too much work to find cool content.

However, I will admit that after seeing this video (below) from a Reddit user, I’m kind of impressed by the creativity that can be found amongst the Reddit community.

So basically, this guy who had to “cat-sit” his girlfriend’s precious cat, decided to have some fun and create a video as if the cat was drunk.

The video, which is edited to the chilled out vibes of Chrome Spark’s 420-friendly single, “Marijuana,”  has some great production quality!
