    The roller coaster is fast—faster than you can believe.

    All of time and space squeezed into one Minecraft roller coaster. This was definitely made by a mad man with an Xbox. (Plus Minecraft's new Doctor Who skin pack for Xbox 360 after the jump.)

  4. The Secret Heroine of Video Games: Princess Peach

    That's Princess Toadstool to you, mister.

    When I was in elementary school, two video game characters in particular helped me visualize a space for girls like me in the medium I would grow to love and write about. One was Princess Peach, who has meant more to me than any other video game heroine since. Below is a look at her throughout Mario history—the games that did her justice, the ones that let her down, and why through it all, I still love her.

  5. Lady Thor To Make Her Video Game Debut In Marvel Puzzle Quest

    Marvel-ous!

    "Hey, can you cover this so I can both praise and rant about MPQ in the comments?," wrote the anonymous tipster who sent us this link. Absolutely, nonnie. We live to serve.

  6. Dorkly Presents The Best Fanart From Nintendo’s New Super-Kawaii 3DS Ad

    Too much cuteness for one post.

    Nintendo released a new ad for the 3DS in Japan, and it was (of course) incredibly cute. The adorableness has inspired a wave of fanart, and the best pieces are collected over on Dorkly!

  8. Plans for Live Action Tetris Movie From Mortal Kombat Movie Studio Falling Into Place

    Please say that means they'll also disappear.

    Yes, there really is a Tetris movie in development from Threshold Entertainment, the makers of bad but somehow still fun Mortal Kombat movies. At least it can't be worse than Battleship.

  9. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess: An Artistic Showdown

    Becoming the brand.

    I’ve been on a Zelda kick lately. So to satiate my craving, I powered through Ocarina of Time 3D (wow, that water temple sure got streamlined), replayed Majora’s Mask, and finally picked up A Link Between Worlds. And this got me to thinking—Ocarina of Time’s value in the grand scheme of things is not so much as a self-contained game anymore.

  10. The Cats In Assassin’s Kitty Unity Are Cute, But Deadly

    Meow is the moment of your demise!

    Sure, Assassin's Creed games are pretty fun, but you know what would make them better? The same thing that makes literally everything better: kitties.
