Xbox One Now Lets You Share Game Videos On YouTube

Posted by Bob Muir on Apr 8, 2014 in Videogames

Xbox Upload

Both the PS4 and Xbox One promised many ways to stream and share footage of gamers playing games, but not all of that functionality was there at launch. While it was easy to record footage on both consoles — Xbox One’s version is called Game DVR — it wasn’t always as easy to share it with everyone you wanted to. As the largest video site on the internet, YouTube was where most people wanted to upload their videos. With the latest update to the Xbox One’s YouTube app, you can finally share your game videos on YouTube instead of just within the Xbox One’s video app. Other improvements include allowing YouTube videos to run in Snap mode, the ability to earn achievements, and the addition of YouTube channels to the OneGuide. But really, the most important thing is the ability to easily share game footage. That’s crucial in the modern gaming landscape. Read more…

Unless Liam Neeson is Your Dad, You’re Screwed

Posted by Ben Huber on Aug 3, 2012 in Fandom

Taken has been a bit of a subject recently with Taken 2 slowly creeping over the horizon. And why not? Liam Neeson killing people and generally being awesome is worth watching. But CaptainHippo takes a look at what would happen in real life if you were kidnapped – and your real father was put in Neeson’s situation. Would he come dashing to rescue you in a bloody murder spree? Or perhaps get to it after he fixed the spouts. He still hasn’t fixed those spouts, has he…

Art of the Instakill Shows You Can Never Escape the Blue Turtle Shell

Posted by Ben Huber on May 13, 2012 in Fandom, Videogames

Instant kills are a common thing in games, and they’re blast when you’re the one executing them. However when you’re on the receiving end, they can be pretty frustrating. Corridor Digital combined many of the most well-known insta-kill attacks into one silly video, excellent for your weekend entertainment. Everyone from Master Chief, to the Spy, to a Combine officer hop into the battle and Corridor Digital does a great job re-creating them in live-action. Great work!



Watch Freddie W. Tell His Younger Self About Future Videogames

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 25, 2012 in Fandom, Videogames

If you could go back in time and tell your younger self about the future of videogames, what would you mention? The improvement in graphics? Being able to play online with other people? Maybe the motion controllers? That’s what Freddie wants to warn his past self about – well, that, and also the plague of Just Dance. I didn’t realize that we lived in such a dark, terrible time for videogames.

Brock Baker Dubs Star Wars

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Feb 28, 2012 in Fandom, Star Wars

YouTube voice-over extraordinaire Brock Baker recently uploaded his abridged dub for Star Wars: Episode IV. It’s mostly silly, but hilarious at times and definitely not safe for work. While I chuckled here and there throughout, nothing really beats his Chewbacca. I’m not sure why it’s so good, and I’m not even sure you’ll love it too, but I can promise it’s not what you’d expect. Still, he must be doing something right because after 8,200 people “liked” the video, he only managed to rack up 150 “dislikes.” Most impressive, considering the material. If you dig it, check out his YouTube Channel for more.

An Animated Autobiographical Dōjinshi

Posted by Michael Pinto on Feb 22, 2010 in Animation

Angel YauYou don’t need a million dollar budget to become a filmmaker: Looking at this short animated film by Angel Yau reminded me a great deal of an animated version of dōjinshi (同人誌) which are self published comic books in Japan. Even though this video was done on an ultra low budget Yau’s storytelling skills had me hooked from the first frame through the last. Read more…

The First YouTube Comic Book

Forgetless #2 - The first comic book to use an youtube interface

Not so long ago I started to notice a few comics were incorporating either Twitter or IM interface elements into their page layout in an attempt to be hip. Well Forgetless #2 takes this trend a step further by having three pages that are done as a faux YouTube video. Just to make sure they’re hitting the right demographics the story features the exploits of a failed t-shirt maker — now if it had been me, I’d have an Etsy craft nerd in the lead role: Read more…
