Growing up, I listened to Godspeed You! Black Emperor all the time. I always thought of them as a post-apocalyptic band -- pretty much perfectly used on the 28 Days Later... soundtrack when Jim is walking around London discovering how fucked everything has become. Great music for walking around late at night in the middle of a big city. It is a lot of dynamic variance and a lot of loose structure, oftentimes descending into beautiful, auditory chaos from a quiet few cello notes.
This video is perfect for the music. The track is called The Dead Flag Blues, and it features a great voice actor describing a ruined world over a series of Half-Life 2 visuals. This is pretty atypical of GY!BE, so listen to more if you don't dig into it right away.
Enjoy the next 5 minutes.
It has been a while since we've posted something like this. And while we've come across some impressive ones in the past, this one is among the best of all time. All of Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time put on the canvas of Minecraft. It is called, cleverly enough, Hyrulecraft.
You'll surely recognize Hyrule, Hylia, and other settings from probably the greatest, most iconic game ever. And the guys who did it aren't finished with their project yet -- allegedly, we will be seeing some challenges in the game itself. But for now, we get to see Hyrule in 1:1. A helluva accomplishment.
Click here to download it yourself (only if you have Minecraft, of course), and enjoy!

Welcome to the first installment of what promises to be a horrifying regular feature here on Joystick Division! Inspired by our much more frequently-updated sister site Topless Robot and its emotionally scarring Fan Fiction Friday column, I bring you Weekly Fan Art! Celebrating the lamest, weirdest and most vomit-inducing video game fan art, I figured I'd start things off with the biggest game mascot of all time: Mario. There are literally thousands of Mario art pieces out there, including some which are truly very cool. These, however, are not cool at all. Hit the jump to revel in the shittiness!
