Two very different worlds collide in this new video imagining what it would be like if the guy from Fallout took on Skyrim's Dovahkiin.

Can a Pip-Boy hold up against the power of a well-placed "Fus Ro Dah?"

Who can eat his rations fast enough to regenerate health?

Watch the video to find out.

This is just the latest matchup from AndrewMFilms, who previously paired up Mario and Minecraft Steve.

Overall the graphics are really well done, and just as a heads up, it gets a little gruesome towards the end.

Italians who can't pay their utility bills are getting help from an unlikely source: Super Mario.

Wearing Mario masks and blue overalls, a group of vigilante plumbers from Rome have been turning the water back on in homes after utility companies turn it off.

They are fighting for underemployed citizens' "right to water" and investigate each case before deciding to take action, according to Vocativ.

About 25 percent of homes are late on payments, and they reportedly get about 200 requests a day.

In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.

According to Komo News:

"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."

It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."

And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."

Let the conspiracy theories begin.

Well, there goes the workday.

The Internet Archive, a non-profit working to build a library of the Internet, has added over 900 originally coin-operated arcade games to its site this week, all playable in your browser without any additional downloads.

"A lot of people are going to migrate to games they recognize and ones that they may not have played in years. They'll do a few rounds, probably get their asses kicked, smile, and go back to their news sites," writes Jason Scott the man who put this all together, effectively destroying workplace productivity across the country.

Last year the Internet Archive added a "Console Living Room" section, that included games from Atari and Sega.

Master pumpkin carver ceemdee has been carving pumpkins for Halloween for years. Focusing primarily on video games, she has over 100 carvings in her deviantART gallery, and hopefully she keeps carving for years to come. Ladies and gentlemen, the bar has been set.
