Star Destroyer in Grand Theft Auto V

Not unlike trailer mash-ups and supercuts, there are plenty of video game modifications out there for those who choose to do their gaming on computers. Specifically, Grand Theft Auto has seen some awesome mods that have brought the Iron Man suit to GTA V and the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine to GTA IV.

But few mods bring something as big as this into the video game world. Gamer Justin Lewis (aka “JJxORACLE”) from Arterius Modding has created a mod that lets gamers fly an Imperial Star Destroyer in Grand Theft Auto V. And we’re not talking about a scaled down Star Destroyer. We’re talking about a massive starship cruising over Los Santos. Read More »

Nintendo May Finally Start Making Movies Again

Nintendo movies

Nintendo made their first and only foray into motion pictures with the positively disastrous 1993 adaptation Super Mario Bros., which was recently skewered by the folks at Honest Trailers. Since then, the video game company has steered clear of bringing any of their other characters to the big screen, and we don’t blame them

But it’s been 22 years now, and with a new deal at Universal Studios bringing Nintendo characters to life in a new theme park environment, the company might be turning over a new leaf when it comes to expanding the media reach of their most treasured characters to create some Nintendo movies.

Mad Max Fury Road GoKart video

We’ve already seen a fair share of mash-ups involving this summer’s blockbuster favorite Mad Max: Fury Road. Recently someone made an Adventure Time version of the trailer, and before that someone took elements of Mario Kart and inserted them into the trailer. And now we’re getting an almost real-life version of the latter mash-up done in quite the professional manner, complete with impressive stunt work.

For those who don’t know, there’s a Mad Max video game arriving in stores the same day that Mad Max: Fury Road hit shelves on Blu-Ray and DVD. And the folks at Devin Super Tramp were asked to team up with Warner Bros. Games to make a viral commercial for the video game where they recreate the non-stop chase from Fury Road with GoKarts and paintball guns, and it’s impressive as hell.

Star Wars Battlefront Millennium Falcon

We’ve already seen enough footage from the forthcoming video game Star Wars Battlefront to convince me to buy the game when it arrives this fall. However, some new footage from the game gets me even more excited to play around in a galaxy far, far away.

EA has just revealed footage from a gameplay mode called Fighter Squadron which allows players to take part in an insane 20-player dogfight. That means there will be a ton of X-Wings, TIE Fighters and even the Millennium Falcon flying around, all piloted by you. Watch the Star Wars Battlefront Millennium Falcon game footage below!

Grand Theft Auto Iron Man mod

Even though the newest edition of Grand Theft Auto is always something that gets people excited, like any other video game, it gets old after awhile. Sometimes not even expansion packs can make it much more exciting.

However, there are gamers out there who are much more skilled with computers than the average gamer, and they craft some pretty awesome mods to be thrown into a game like Grand Theft Auto V. For example, JulioNIB, who has been creating mods for the video game franchise for a few years now, has been working in an Iron Man suit that allows you to fly around Los Santos, shooting repulsor beams from the character’s hands and chest.
