Wednesday, 31 August 2011 09:05 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Once a sanctity of hallowed soundbites, the daily Shorts is rapidly transforming into an excuse to post videos.

  • Relic sent Kotaku a cool Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine poster – makes a great desktop!
  • EDGE has a really interesting retrospective on the making of Left 4 Dead – which if you stop to think about it, is a very unusual game.
  • That NASA MMO, Astronaut: Moon Mars and Beyond, has reached its Kickstarter target. Moon, Mars, here we come. Next: Beyond.
  • Looks like Google is pretty close to launching Chrome Gaming.

And now, videos.

  • Here’s an interview with a Capcom legend – Tom Pon, veteran develoepr – wearing a Megaman suit.
  • Destructoid discovered a League of Legends fan band. Okay.
  • Here’s a cool 8 bit animation based on EVO 2011, as an eight year old draws the eyes of the world.
  • As this video proves, you are free to be a total dick in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
  • Here’s another deus Ex one, in which Adam Jensen’s cousin Chad gets a useful augmentation.
  • Check out some unreleased music tracks from Pikmin over on GoNintendo.
  • Sydney University Science Revue has a bit of a reputation for awesome viral vids – this one discusses the “Pokémon state of mind“.
  • Remember that awesome Fallout fan film, Nuka Break? Yeah, there’s more. Check it out below.

Today’s unrelated street art.
