We’ve seen our share of unique dice, but this forged version by blacksmith Gil Ramierez is definitely a first. It’s just…appropriate, you know? See it come together in the video below. [click to continue…]

From The Shire to Westeros, gamers have recreated a wide range of famous fictional realms in Minecraft (seriously, if you haven’t seen the Minecraft-version of Westeros, do it now). That having been said, AlanBeckerMinecraft recreated the world from My Neighbor Totoro in Minecraft, and his attention to detail is astounding. Experience it in the “cinematic trailer” featured below. [click to continue…]

What happens when you get 17 Star Wars-loving Obsidian devs together for a fan project? This absolutely incredible recreation of the Mos Eisley spaceport and cantina made in Unreal Engine 4.

The project is headed by Jason Lewis who started out with a plan to create the Falcon sitting in Docking Bay 94 as a fun way to practice with the engine. Next thing you know, he wanted to add interiors and exteriors and the cantina, so he recruited his friends to help. And help they did.

After viewing the video and pictures below, all I want is a VR headset so I can run around and explore. [click to continue…]

Riot Games, eh? Look at them over there, making waves. Y’know what those saucy buggers just did? They just dropped an entire eBook containing stunning concept art – characters, environments, the lot – online, where anybody can read it, absolutely free.

Filled with incredible character studies, ideas, concepts, sketches, drawings and paintings, you get a real sense of just how much work – and art – has gone into making LoL the behemoth that it is. And the best part? It’s labelled “Volume One”, so there may well be more of this down the line.

Head on over to read the thing, but don’t just flick through it. Take your time. Pour over every detail. Believe me, you’ll be glad you did.

warhammer fan film

Warhammer 40K fan, Senior 3D Artist, and filmmaker Erasmus Brosdau has turned his love for the game into an absolutely incredible looking fan film called The Lord Inquisitor. This film, made with the blessing of Games Workshop, is a five-year labor of love that has culminated in the 8-minute prologue featured below (the full film is slated for release next year). Seriously, it’s one of the most ambitious and breathtaking fan film projects we have ever seen. [click to continue…]

The plot of Hamlet is crazy and intense. Now, imagine it as an “overzealous” D&D campaign. Ooh! now that’s an interesting idea.

After reading the exchange about the concept below, you might want to consider applying it to other works by Shakespeare—and beyond. [click to continue…]

Nothing in any of the DOOM games is as terrifying and obnoxious as what you are about to witness. At around the 1:00 mark you’ll probably feel your sanity begin to slip away. [click to continue…]

Artist Lily Nishita is a genius. The former Naughty Dog artist knows what people like, namely Overwatch and doggy-woggies. So what could be better than taking these two great tastes and combining them in a flavor explosion so delicious it’d take every Frito-Lay executive working ’round the clock decades to match? Nothing, that’s what.

Oh, you want proof? Sure, go ahead – check out more of Lily’s amazing work below. Then weep, as Alexander wept, for there are no more things-as-dogs worlds to conquer. Not ’til the next Blizzard game, at least. [click to continue…]

You’ve probably seen Pokémon Fusions, a website that lets you fuse two different Pokémon together into one unholy (but cute!) abomination of nature. This has been a great source of inspiration for artist like Alesia Gitter, aka nintendobratkat, who has decided to draw her own fusions as well as fusion requests from fans.

They are, of course, impossibly, insufferably adorable. Check out the complete gallery below. [click to continue…]

An apocalyptic wasteland can be a dreary place. But do you know what would make it a little better? Happy little trees, of course. And firepower. Lots of firepower.

In the following video, Bob Ross brings both to Fallout 4. [click to continue…]
