2012 has seen a bumper batch of musician-helmed video games hitting the Internet. They're ostensibly meant to promote an artist's latest release, but also act as snappy diversions to play in your browser while you should be concentrating on something far more important. Here are five of the best recent releases.

5. 2 Chainz's Live In Color

Based on: Track & Field

The setup: Take control of professional guest-verse artist 2 Chainz as he sprints through the streets hopping over trash cans and gaps in the pavement and seeking out special orbs that fill the screen with color. This all happens against a heavily-branded backdrop that involves a sneaker manufacturer that is not Nike, Converse or Reebok.

Is it any cop? Mildly diverting, but the controls have been reduced to tapping the space bar to hop over obstacles. The trickiest task is concentrating on the screen when the technicolor blitz kicks in.

Shoot Swag at Basic Bitches All Day Long with the Kreayshawn Videogame

Posted By on Tue, Oct 11, 2011 at 4:19 PM


Okay, so it's not an official Kreayshawn videogame -- but it is a Flash project loosely based on the Zachary's pizza-hating Oakland-via-L.A rapper, and it is pretty fun to play. There are four levels, including the club and the mall, and you get to shoot swag bombs at basic bitches, then steal their Louis bags.

The best part is that the avatar character actually does look like an 8-bit Kreayshawn with the mouse ears and glasses. When you die, you turn into a kitty. In the words of creator Beth Maher, "It's here, it's fresh, it's shiny and it's got the swag, and it's pumping out it's ovaries."

Or at least, it's something to get you through the afternoon.

Could Someone Please Explain Olivia Munn to Me?

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 11:39 AM

Yesterday morning, I woke up to this in my RSS feed. Might be NSFW but I'm not sure as I'm afraid to look at it for fear my breakfast will repeat itself on me.

Munn: A Fine Example For Little Girls

I just...I mean...WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH VIDEO GAMES? Seriously, someone please explain it to me with words that are not "marketing" or "demographic" because that BS will not fly with me.

Hit the jump for more scantily clad ladies and my angry mutterings about them.

(Oh hey! I'm a marketing genius! Look at me go! Working the system from the inside out! I hate myself!)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
