Courtesy YouTube’s The Blue Owl, the voice of professional wrestling, “Good Old J.R.” Jim Ross once again lends his voice to video games. As always, GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! THAT KILLED HIM! AS GOD AS MY WITNESS, HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!

EA Sports UFC Still Has Some Amazing Glitches

I can’t imagine that it’s easy to make a video game and especially one that has to recreate such a varied and technical sport as mixed martial arts. But when you’re the biggest sports game developer in the world that is simultaneously the most hated dev/publisher and you’ve acquired the license to the biggest MMA organization in the world, expectations are high. So when your UFC game is full of hilarious glitches, it’s going to be fodder for hilarious videos.

So as a follow-up to the original video, here are more awesome EA Sports UFC glitches as called by “Mike Goldberg” and “Joe Rogan.”

Last Friday Night on Star Trek

Apparently this video is three years old but it’s new to me so it goes up on the blog. I can’t say that I’m a fan of Katy Perry’s music but I am a fan of classic Star Trek so I find it absolutely hilarious that ST:TOS makes for an absolutely perfect music video for Last Friday Night. Maybe I like it because it’s a three-minute tribute to all of Bill Shatner’s hammy acting.

Wrestling Legend Jim Ross Commentates Video Games

The legendary voice of wrestling Jim Ross has had his voice leant to videos of just about everything. He’s called fails, dancing, other sports and now, he’s the voice of video games. YouTube’s The Blue Owl has come up with three absolutely perfect video of Jim Ross commentating the action of various video games.

And GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! THAT KILLED HIM! AS GOD AS MY WITNESS, HE IS BROKEN IN HALF!

EA Sports UFC Has Some Hilarious Glitches

EA Sports new UFC game isn’t getting the same love a critical acclaim that some of their other franchises get. I seem to recall the Fight Night series getting some amazing reviews, especially Round 4 which was absolutely epic. UFC is getting mostly mid-level reviews with a Metacritic score in the low 70s.

While it might not be EA Sports’s best offering to date, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have some fun with it. This video of glitches as called by “Mike Goldberg” and “Joe Rogan” is pretty damn funny.

Final Fantasy VII: The Honest Trailer

It wasn’t until very recently that I found out that there was a version of YouTube sensation Honest Trailers about video games. It features the same amazing voiceovers by Jon Bailey but these videos are under the Smosh rather than Screen Junkies banner.

So for the first honest video game trailer we run on etg, it’s Final Fantasy VII. The good news is that you’ll probably be able to buy it for cheap during the Steam Sale that starts today.

Geeky Condom Wrappers

I think that we all need a good laugh to close out the week. It’s certainly felt like a long one up here in Canada and I’m not just saying that because a weird rain/snow mix winter storm is rolling through right now. So I thought I’d share this geek culture set of condom wrappers by Kode Logic.

Remember, kids, practice safe sex and the following images are ever so slightly NSFW.

Rev3 Games’ Secrets to Game Reviews

Given how much we all focus on the scores that games get in their reviews, it’s generally a good idea to know how outlets come up with their scores. Sure, you could look that up yourself but where’s the fun in that when you can get industry insiders to tell you how it works. During Rev3 Games’ PAX panel, Anthony Carboni explained the agreed upon industry-wide methodology behind review scores.

The Greatest Yearbook Quote Ever

Sometimes being a nerd has its advantages. Jessica Lee’s quote in her high school yearbook looks like a bunch of different elements at first glance. But when you look a little closer, she’s hidden a message in her quote that’s definitely not a bunch of elements.

Beware of The Fake Geek Girl

When we say that we’re a geek blog for geeks and want to take the word geek back, we aren’t kidding. That’s why it’s our duty to warn you about THE FAKE GEEK GIRL!

Okay, this is just a fake movie trailer for done in the style of a drive-in B-horror-movie but who doesn’t love the campish awesomeness of vintage B-movies.
