Cued to Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger and Around The World, this stop motion video perfectly illustrates London’s frenetic pace. Trip across the pond, anyone?
Created for Saturn (think Best Buy for Germans), Evolution of Technology mixes robots and biology to explain survival of the fittest; apparently, we all evolve into hot, blue-skinned babes.
Joe Esposito crooning You’re The Best to a Street Fighter II gameplay montage just seems transcendent; we can only hope the Capcom gods deign to include this in-game one day.
No, these actors haven’t gone mad: the desk lamp above is AUR, an MIT robot that uses a hybrid control system that lets it react to and interact with on-stage performers.
This video puts our office hoops game to shame: watch as several French kids put a Parkour twist on recycling cans, with amazing long-distance kicks and behind the back tosses.
Neo should be happy the Matrix didn’t run on Windows, or he’d be subjected to the scenes in this hilarious video; it’s filled with Microsoft in-jokes, including the dreaded BSOD.

This Eve Online trailer for the Quantum Rise expansion lays it on thick, with “breaking news” of a surprise invasion. The real star of the show: enhanced stability and gameplay tweaks.
levelHead isn’t new, but this crisp Vimeo video does a much better job at showing off the spatial memory game; it uses a Sony Eyetoy, solid plastic cubes and runs on Ubuntu and Debian.

Made with AfterEffects in only 20 hours, this Mega Man stop motion video by Nicolas Menard features paper cutters of death, dangerous Oreos and a hat tip to classic Nintendo controllers.
With a Warner Bros live-action Akira due in 2009, American Akira is both hilarious and terrifying, similar to what might happen if Michael Bay made a Transformers movie. Oh, wait…
Although we liked Reverie, we prefer Akihabara News’ use of the EOS 5D MKII in Tokyo Reality for its multiple “day in the life” shots; if you like people watching, this is your video.
If the last Guitar Hero: World Tour trailer was a bit too testosterone-loaded, this video with a smokin’ Heidi Klum should restore balance to the force; not responsible for dropped jaws.
GPG’s Demigod isn’t an easy game to define–an RTS version of Diablo? A DotA descendant? Either way, it looks pretty fantastic from the trailer above; expect it to arrive February 2009.
Reza Dolatabadi’s Khoda looks rotoscoped, but it’s actually 6,000 individual paintings created over the course of two years and compiled into the five minute “psychological thriller” above.
Repo! The Genetic Opera has all the makings of a cult classic: it’s a rock opera-musical with human organ repo-men, 64 songs and Paris Hilton; it hits select US theaters November 7.
25 years after the original Run-D.M.C., the Reverend shows he’s still got it; this time, he’s beatboxing to Beethoven with his two sons on Wii Music: “Follow the note and rock it out!”

It was bound to happen: PSN member RRR30000 has recreated the first level of Gradius in LBP; it’s fully playable and includes an amazingly detailed (and dangerous) boss at the end.

We’ve personally dressed as a skeleton, a ghost and a pumpkin for Halloween, but this mecha costume is just plain awesome. The kid wanted to be a robot, and his dad absolutely delivered.
The Gloaming is an atmospheric and creepy short that makes us seriously reconsider long nights at the office; it’s directed by USC student Andrew Huang and stars Randall Rickert.
After a three year hiatus, Red Bull Rampage is back, and we found the freeride mountain biking footage above as exhilirating as ever. It’s held at Zion National Park in Utah.
