  • Awesomenauts Achievement Cartoon References

    0 CommentsPosted by on August 6, 2012 under Cartoons, Video Games
    So today I picked up the quirky MOBA-platformer Awesomenauts from Steam. It's supposed to have an '80s Saturday Morning Cartoon vibe to it, but I guess I don't really get that feel from the game other than the inspirations for some of the character archetypes (space cowboy, sentient brain, giant robot, etc). The art and voices just don't match up with the cartoons I'm used to. However, the ach... more.

    Yeah, I totally missed Cosplay Thursday this week. To make up for it, here are some of my favorite costumes from this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Lots of awesome cosplay this year, and this is just a tiny fraction. (more…)... more.
  • Cosplay Thursday – Captain America

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 14, 2011 under Cosplay
    Here's one of the better Captain America costumes I've seen. While female characters can be hard for many to cosplay due to their insane hourglass figures, that's not to say guys have it easy either. My scrawny ass would make a terrible Cap, and I've seen some who fill his uniform a bit too much. This guy, however, has the manly jawline and burly-enough body to make it work, opted for the shin... more.
  • Cartoons on DVD: C.O.P.S.

    0 CommentsPosted by on July 12, 2011 under Cartoons
    C.O.P.S. is a cartoon I'd never heard about until a couple years ago. Maybe I watched it as a kid and totally forgot, but I'd hope I'd remember a show as cool as this. Featuring the often-bizarre character designs of Peter Chung (of Aeon Flux), C.O.P.S. is an animated series about a team of police officers, many of which have special equipment of some kind; Bowser has a robot dog named Blitz, "Bul... more.
  • Flowchart for ’80s and ’90s Cartoons

    8 CommentsPosted by on July 9, 2011 under Cartoons, Featured
    My word, this flowchart was a pain in the ass to make! Yes, I'll get questions about why I didn't add Batman: The Animated Series or Eek! The Cat or Rugrats or any of tons of shows not included here. This is confined to roughly the '80s and the first half of the '90s, doesn't include superhero series or Nicktoons, and also omits a bunch of more comedic series (Garfield, Beavis & Butthead, Flin... more.
  • Cosplay Thursday – Power Girl

    Power Girl's a tricky cosplay to pull off. While most superheroes have impossible bodies, Peej goes even further with her huge rack front and center, shown off by her "boob window" costume. This cosplay by srsRazzmatazz manages to pull the look off perfectly, using her hourglass figure to its full potential to really succeed as Power Girl. Add in the cape and a perfect wig, and you've got ... more.
  • Commercial Break – WWF Talkin’ Tough Action Figures – 1991

    Commercials can be annoying, they can be very annoying, and they can feature Rowdy Roddy Piper screaming at you to buy toys. Yeah, this is the last one. (more…)... more.
  • Cosplay Thursday – Poison Ivy

    Yeah, I'm a shameless Poison Ivy fanboy, so I might as well have some Ivy cosplay as the first post of the new Cosplay Thursday feature. I have no idea who this girl is, but she looks the part in the green dress and gloves while also rocking red hair and lipstick. And while it looks more like a modified tiara, that wrist crossbow added to her costume gives her plenty of bonus points.... more.
