In pictures: The creepiest video game fan art of all time

"…If you gaze into an abyss long enough, the abyss gazes also into you." -- Friedrich Nietzsche.

The Internet is a dark and scary place, filled with terrors both familiar and unimaginable. I know this, for I have stared into the fan art abyss... and the abyss stared back.

When I decided to compile a slideshow of bad video game fan art, I had no idea what kind of Pandora’s Box I was about to open. I expected to find a few child-like scrawls of Zelda and Sonic. Instead, I saw things that no sane gamer should ever have to lay eyes on. (If you think this little crop is bad, you should see the stuff we couldn’t publish -- you'd gouge your own eyes out and scream that you could still see.)

We're sorry for destroying your childhood. As a numbing salve, we recommend this slideshow of hot cosplay girls. Keep it open in a separate browser, in case of emergencies.

[Note: to protect the not-so-innocent, we have decided not to source the following images. If you want your artwork removed or – God forbid – would like to be credited, send us an email and we’ll make the necessary changes.]

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
