If you can tolerate the trippy soundtrack, the video above is a fascinating look into the world of a graphic artist; watch as Chad Pugh works on his Science Machine print, for sale here.

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Trailer: Elven Legacy

Elven Legacy looked like yet another (albeit good-looking) fantasy game, at least until we saw hexes: we’re big turn-based gamers, so we’re eagerly awaiting its Q1 ’09 release.

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Gameplay: Agatha Ragata

Even if witches and fantasy gaming aren’t your thing, Oxeye’s Agatha Ragata is worth a look for its immersive music and sound effects; we think the laughtrack is particularly effective.

John Oliver vs. John King

John Oliver vs. John King

The Daily Show’s John Oliver takes one last parting shot at the famous “Magic Wall” used in the US elections; there are some hilarious moments as he takes on CNN’s own John King.

Google Voice Search

Google Voice Search

After last Friday’s false start, Google’s iPhone Voice Search app is finally available in the iTunes store; this intuitive app ditches typing altogether and lets you search via voice commands.

Trailer: Afro Samurai

Taking its cell-shaded anime style to the console, we have high hopes for Afro Samurai; it’s coming to the Xbox 360 and PS3 in January. And yes, Samuel L. Jackson will be lending his voice.

Tesla Downunder

Tesla Downunder

If you liked Zelda with Tesla Coils, get ready for a “power” trip: Tesla Downunder has over 200 high voltage projects. Above is a Red Alert reenactment; can you spot the engineer?

Retro Trailer: Resistance 2

Retro Trailer: Resistance 2
Buy

We nearly overlooked this idyllic suburbia-style trailer for Resistance 2; it starts off innocuously enough, at least until Chimera crash a grad party and start tearing up the lawn.

Video: Bike Hero

Video: Bike Hero

All we can say is wow: Kevin of Ft. Wayne is a handlebar virtuoso, riding his bike in this Guitar Hero viral marketing video; the song is The Living End’s Prisoner of Society.

Dodge EV vs. Challenger

Dodge EV vs. Challenger

It’s by no means an official race, but check out this video of a Dodge EV concept beating a Challenger; the EV is actually an ell-electric, Dodge-branded Lotus Europa.

Monty Python on YouTube

Monty Python on YouTube

Thumbing their noses at pirates, the comedians at Monty Python have taken a big, lumberjack-sized leap into the 21st century: they’ve created their own high quality YouTube channel.

WoW Retrospective

WoW Retrospective

We love GameTrailer’s retrospectives (watch Fallout here), but this WoW video is our favorite; it actually covers everything from Kesmai, UO and Everquest to the Lich King expansion.

Video: Welcome Back

Video: Welcome Back

Best known for their No Pants and Best Buy pranks, Improv Everywhere’s Welcome Back is a bit more tame but still quite funny: watch as they welcome random strangers at an airport.

Oblong g-Speak

Oblong g-Speak

It was only a matter of time before Minority Report’s gesture tech became a reality; made in part by a science advisor for the movie, Oblong’s g-Speak is a “spatial operating environment.”

HD Trailer: Star Trek

HD Trailer: Star Trek

Shaky cam footage has been up all weekend, but here’s the official Star Trek trailer in HD; love it or hate it, we have a feeling it’s going to kick some major Romulan butt come May 2009.

Awaken Trailer: Last Remnant

After scoring a whopping 38/40 at Famitsu, we’re even more intrigued by this Awaken trailer for Last Remnant; it’s due out on November 20th for the Xbox 360 in North America.

Launch Trailer: Tomb Raider

We could’ve done without the emo music, but this launch trailer for Tomb Raider: Underworld beautifully shows off the game’s lush environments and unique boss battles.

Race: ZR1/599/GT-R/GT2

Race: ZR1/599/GT-R/GT2

It doesn’t get much better than this for car enthusiasts: watch this drag race between a Chevy ZR1, Ferrari 599, Nissan GT-R and a Porsche GT2. Hint: the Axis powers lose.

Voice Activated R2D2

Voice Activated R2D2
Buy

Short of becoming a Jedi, this voice-activated R2D2 does it all; it’ll respond to simple commands, act as a room sentry and even play tag using an infrared sensor to detect motion.

Trailer: Bitch Slap

Trailer: Bitch Slap

NSFW: forget about political correctness pretenses with Bitch Slap, which debuted at this year’s Comic Con; heavily bosomed babes aside, the cinematography looks pretty sweet.

Prince of Persia Trailers

Prince of Persia Trailers

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a trio of Prince of Persia trailers up; suffice to say, they’re all good, but our favorite is the story trailer, which although lengthy at 5 minutes is absolutely gorgeous.

Latest Trailer: Harry Potter

Latest Trailer: Harry Potter

The “real” trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is above; a bit more expository and light-hearted than the international one, it also squeezes in some new, tantalizing scenes.

Latest Trailer: Watchmen

Latest Trailer: Watchmen

While the previous trailer was more artsy, this theatrical Watchmen trailer establishes the storyline and is narrated by Rorschach, with help from Silk Spectre and Doctor Manhattan.

Video: Squeeze Me

Video: Squeeze Me

Arguably the coolest use of flip books we’ve ever seen, this imaginative music video for Kraak and Smaak’s Squeeze Me is directed by Dutch duo Superelectric and Andre Maat.

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

Gameplay: Bionic Commando

This trailer for Bionic Commando eschews cinematics and exposition for good ol’ fashioned gameplay; we’re positively stoked at how fast-paced and action-packed this game looks.

Lopsided Robot Battle

Lopsided Robot Battle

Simultaneously cruel but a bit funny, this lopsided battle pits ALCNON, a 1.3 meter, 16 kg robot against a much smaller opponent; it’s like David vs. Goliath, minus the slingshot.
