  • Blog Post: Video Game Stained Glass Art

    Artist Rick Daniels runs a shop called "MartianGlasswork" on Etsy, where he sells a variety of stained glass panels he's created. His amazing glass work seems even more impressive when you learn that he's entirely self-taught, and started only about two years ago. Most of his work is... More

    As a child, Samus' parents were killed by evil Space Pirates, but she was spared and cared for by a race of Chozo. DeviantArt user Kelii has to decide to depict what that may have looked like. It's somehow adorable, sweet, and terrifying all at once. [via Reddit ] More
  • Blog Post: Samus, Zelda, And Peach Are Miyamoto's Angels

    In this amusing web video, some creative filmmakers have recast Nintendo's iconic trio of female characters in a Charlie's Angels parody. As far as Internet spoofs go, this is a pretty funny one -- especially if you're a fan of the original '70s Charlie's Angels show. There are several... More
  • Blog Post: Samus' Agent Is Kind Of A Dirtbag

    Samus has a reputation as a fearless bounty hunter, scouring the galaxy for alien scum and exploring distant worlds. She wasn't always that strong-willed, however, as a Dorkly video shows. In the clip , Samus' fast-talking agent breaks things down in a brutally honest (and completely sleazy)... More

  • Blog Post: Nerdgasm: Master Chief And Samus Aran Together At Last

    Two of gaming's most iconic space commandos are together at last. Given how little both of these characters talk in their games, and how stupid it is when they do, you'd have to imagine this meeting unfolding with an awkward handshake, foot shuffling, and lots of drama filled pauses in a pointless...

  • Blog Post: Two New Metroid: Other M Trailers Ooze Nostalgia And Action

    Samus' signature armor may take its scrapes on her adventures, but boy-o-boy can that girl kick some butt.
