Every day Rocks Off trolls the tubes of you in search of videos to share. If you have something that you think deserves to be video of the day, send a link to jef_rouner at yahoo dot com.
If you have the kind of job where you can play flash games on Adult Swim's Web site like your daily VJ does, then there is now way you have missed the absolute perfection that is Robot Unicorn Attack. Combining the simple, addictive gameplay of Super Mario Bros. with state-of-the-art graphics, you control a robot unicorn on a quest to make all your wishes come true.
But the highly addictive gameplay and genius melding of unicorns and robots is only half the game's genius. The other half is that this little adventure is set an endlessly replaying loop of Erasure's "Always," and it goes together like Dio and dragons.
Unfortunately, YouTube and its archaic copyright laws keep taking down videos of the proper gameplay, but for now, here's as best a sample as we could come up with. Experience the wonder.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
