Be careful what you eat, you might be digesting the saviour of the universe
Remember how great StarCraft: Ghost was going to be? Sorry, it’s dead. It’s not uncommon for games to be cancelled. It usually happens like this: A game is announced, we hear nothing about it for years, then buried somewhere in a press release about another game we find a note that mentions that it has been “indefinitely delayed,” which actually means “permanently delayed.” And that’s it, we never hear about it again.
It's Friday, which means its time to enjoy your eyes and ears with another of our creatively daring videogame music film mash-up megamix things. This week we give Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs a good going over with a classic old-to-the-school Kirby tune. Thought the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack couldn't get any better? Watch the video and think again friends. Take it away, Mr Blonde...

Deep down, you realize they’re not real. You understand that what you’re seeing on screen is only pixels and polygons, that what you’re talking to is only a voice actor and that what you’re supposedly interacting with is only a fancy collection of programming codes. Sometimes, however, you can’t help but be a little fooled. Especially when you’re a young, dumb, naïve and impressionable kid…
How noble, the human species! Once a year we selflessly take a break from wrapping products in toxic plastics and burning piles of old tires to appease this stupid, stupid planet we live on. How dare it demand more trees, breathable air and animals that don’t choke to death on our trash?
We know it's not real. You don't have to make excuses.
