Bob (Ross) of WarWhat I look for in cosplay is clever mashups and creative takes on pre-existing characters. When the concept is a pun, then I add bonus points for humor. In this case, redditor /u/bradlyb623 gets a A+. This is his costume for DragonCon in Atlanta in early September 2022.The late Bob Ross from the PBS television series The Joy of Painting was the epitome of mellowness. He exuded calm everywhere he went—even through the airwaves. Kratos, the main character in the God of War video games series, is, shall we say, a bit more in touch with his anger.#GodOfWar #cosplay #BobRoss

Lies of P is a Pinocchio Video GameOver at Pop Culturista, we've been following the three, count em, three 2022 movies based on the story Pinocchio. A fourth Pinocchio has entered the game, literally, in the game Lies of P. The trailer above was unveiled at Tuesday’s Gamescom Opening Night Live. In this Bloodborne-stylegame, you play as Pinocchio, and you'll have to tell lies to advance, but it's all for the greater good and your goal is to become a real boy. This all makes sense, and is in line with the original story, but the difference here is that Pinocchio is not so much a boy but a hot young teenager. ​

The Best Selling Video Game Consoles in HistoryDespite the advancement of gaming devices, no other console has recorded more sales than Sony’s PlayStation 2. And get this: the iconic console has been discontinued since 2013. Throughout its lifetime, PS2 racked up 157,68 million in global sales. Following closely behind is rival Nintendo’s portable console Nintendo DS with nearly 155 million global lifetime sales.A major factor in PS2’s popularity was its DVD-friendly feature. Remember DVD, the disc that you used to watch movies on? Back in the PS2’s heyday, the console was cheaper than an actual DVD player in many places. PS2 was also one of the first devices to be backward compatible. It allowed gamers to play most of their PS1 games on PS2, eliminating the necessity to buy a whole new set of games as well as retaining the fanbase.Though long hath the king reigned on top, eventually it’ll have to concede. Now, the top contender to possibly take that #1 spot happens to be Nintendo Switch. In early 2022, the console broke the record for fastest 100 million units sold.Check out the full list of the best-selling video game console of all time over at Visual Capitalist.#GamingConsole #Nintendo #PlayStation #PS2 #Sony #NintendoDS #gaming #NintendoSwitchImage: vgchartz.com/Enrique Mendoza Tincopa @datavizadventure
