Robot Chicken x Spore

Robot Chicken x Spore

Like kids with matches and gasoline, the Spore devs invite the jokesters at Robot Chicken to create their own Galactic Adventures; bananas in dresses and farting frogs, anyone?

The Case of Mister Hollow

The Case of Mister Hollow

It’s a bit dizzying to watch, but Rodrigo Gudi√±o’s The Facts in The Case of Mister Hollow is a unique short film that lets you play detective by using a single image to tell an entire story.

Just “plane” awesome: 73 remote controlled airplanes take flight simultaneously at the 2009 Joe Nall, a gathering of RC flight enthusiasts at the Triple Tree Aerodrome in South Carolina.

Short Film: Masquerade

Short Film: Masquerade

We love the funky cardboard look of Aziz Kocanaoqullari’s Masquerade; set to music by Belgium band Ghinzu, it also makes a poignant statement about workplace behavior.

Launch Trailer: Terminator

Launch Trailer: Terminator

It’s amazing what a little voice work, a sweet soundtrack and anti-aliasing can do, but this launch trailer for Terminator: Salvation has our hopes way up for the game; it’s out today.

Trailer: Resonance of Fate

Trailer: Resonance of Fate

We like this new trailer for Resonance of Fate (aka End of Eternity), but it seems to be a bit too American: the last half is filled with fast action sequences and the heavy metal-ish music.

Time Lapse Milky Way

Time Lapse Milky Way

Shot at the 2009 Texas Star Party, this stunning time lapse shows the Milky Way in all its awe-inspiring beauty; it was taken with a Canon EOS-5D, fisheye lens and 20-40s exposures.

The Sims 3: Trek Parody

The Sims 3: Trek Parody

This Trek Parody is not only a funny spoof of the new Star Trek film, but also shows off The Sims 3 movie mashup tool; it’ll let you boldly go where no machinima has gone before.

Let There Be Sound

Let There Be Sound

Like Spore but funkier (if that’s even possible), Let There Be Sound is as gorgeous as it is grotesque; still, any film that simultaneously makes us smile and squirm is worth a watch.

Trailer: In the Loop

Trailer: In the Loop

In the Loop brings The Office’s style of comedy to international politics, specifically satirizing the Iraq war with bumbling government officials and endless one liners; it hits theaters 7/24.

Free: Pirate Defense

Free: Pirate Defense

Pirate Defense is yet another tower defense game (and not much of a looker), but gets interesting once you use traps; it takes some getting used to, but is worth the Yarrs and Arghhs.

Short Film: The Fly

Short Film: The Fly

Based on a quote by clergyman Norman Vincent Peale, The Fly is an animated film about the power of thought, the value of patience and the need for flypaper. Thanks, Tenshi!

Halo x Hyrule Map

Halo x Hyrule Map

We initially thought all this ginormous custom Halo PC map of Hyrule needed to be perfect was Link, but it looks like they’ve got that covered, too at 1:06; truly epic, ARKaMAN.

Clock Clock

Clock Clock

It makes our heads hurt thinking about it, but the video helps explain how Clock Clock works; it’s basically an array of analog clocks whose hands combine to show digital time.

Video: NXTfied Theater

Video: NXTfied Theater

This video may look like a simple Lego movie, but all movement–from the ships to the stage–is actually controlled by a Mindstorms NXT kit; skip to 2:35 to look behind the scenes.

Video: Drawing Robot

Video: Drawing Robot

Made with Lego Mindstorms NXT and hung from three pulleys, Nils Volker’s Drawing Robot is more artistic than technical: it tracks visitor’s eye movements to create dot paintings.

Gameplay: Uncharted 2

Gameplay: Uncharted 2

We almost wet ourselves watching this fantastic gameplay trailer for Uncharted 2, set in a war-torn city; Drake’s actions are so expertly blended into the game it feels like a movie.

TF2: Meet the Spy

TF2: Meet the Spy

Spoiler alert: this Meet the Spy video is our favorite out of the other “Meet the…” videos for Team Fortress 2; we won’t ruin the ending, but watch every character closely for their tells.

Mass Effect 2 Prelude

Mass Effect 2 Prelude

While it doesn’t show us everything we want to see, this Mass Effect 2 Prelude in advance of E3 gives away just enough with an emphasis on intense combat and a darker storyline.

Launch: Bionic Commando

Launch: Bionic Commando
Buy

Get those credit cards out 5/19, because this launch trailer should put those of you on the fence about Bionic Commando over the edge with awesome music and a swinging montage.

Video: Procedural City

Video: Procedural City

Although software engineer Shamus Young’s Procedural City above looks simple, what makes it special is that it is generated on the fly using algorithms with no textures or models.

ShamWow Guy in Jail

ShamWow Guy in Jail

If you’ve been wondering what Vince Shlomi aka ShamWow Commercial Guy has been up to since his arrest, ShamWow Guy in Jail shows that he’s up to his old Slap Chop tricks.

West Was Won: CoJ

West Was Won: CoJ

This How the West Was Won video for Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood is how trailers should be done: it starts off with cutscenes and finishes with plenty of gunslingin’ in-game action.

9 Minutes: BioShock 2

9 Minutes: BioShock 2

Get ready to wet yourself with this 9 minute Hunting the Big Sister trailer; it’s narrated by BioShock 2’s Creative Director and talks about Little Sister adoption and long walks in the ocean.

Movie Trailer: The Road

Movie Trailer: The Road

The Road finally gets a trailer, and just like the book it’s a doozie: the post-apocalyptic story seems overly focused on action, but Viggo Mortensen’s performance looks like a winner.

Projekt PIWO 3

Projekt PIWO 3

Turning a building into a light show is not a novel idea, but Projekt PIWO 3 is among the best; they do everything from Tetris to Michael Jackson in the one hour show above.
