4 Chan Are Working on a Pokemon Game

So according to Reddit the people on /vp/ on 4Chan are working on a Pokemon clone with all new monsters, some of those puns are amazing, I particularly like Thoraxe.

Thorax 0

They have their own forum separate from 4Chan and a Wiki too.

I can’t check the link out at the moment but several people on Reddit have tried out the demo and it apparently looks pretty good.

Downloader beware though I have no idea what is in the exe file.

Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Painting

This has been hanging on my wall for over a year now, it’s a painting by Green Castle Graphics of the final scene in Link’s Awakening. I’ve seen a couple of posts on Reddit that reminded me of it in particular a pearler bead rendition of a scene from Crono Trigger, which has to be my favourite game ever, so I figured I’d finally share this.

I saw this while walking past Green Castle Graphic’s stall at Sloan’s Market in Glasgow, and I had to buy it then and there. Here is the image in Green Castle’s Facebook Gallery before I bought it.

I’m sorely tempted to commission another image by Green Castle I just don’t know what… I have a couple of Ideas though.

FWIW here is the Pearler Bead Chronotrigger image that inspired me to post this:

After two years and 47,096 beads, my girlfriend and I finish this tribute to my favorite game of all time. (OC)

Awesome Quotes About Death From Reddit

I was browsing the comments to a random Reddit post and came across these two gems:

In fact, death itself was invented in 1762 by the Guild of Accountants which wanted to branch out its actuarial division.

[–]Nymaz 204 points  ago

Sure that’s what they claim. The truth is they were sick of people saying “Nothing is certain but taxes” and invented death to deflect some of the grumbling.

One is a response to the other, but as people quickly pointed out they are both very Douglas Adams/Terry Pratchet. As Reddit threads seem to fade away into obscurity, and I guess these will be quoted elsewhere I wanted to do my part to preserve what I think is the origin of these two quotes.

For all I know they were stolen from somewhere else, but on the odd chance they are original…

Space Ring!

I’m not the kind of guy who likes to wear rings or any kind of jewelry for that matter, but I might make an exception for this “9 Planets Ring” available from Jewelry Design For Men, it’s only $4,200 too!

This ring features a complete band of Gibeon Meteorite framed and mounted in an 18k gold band. The meteorite has been etched with nitric acid to reveal the characteristic patterns, or Widmanstatten figures, of iron meteorites, and set with 9 gemstones representing the planets of our Solar System. Mercury is represented by a rust colored Sapphire, Venus a golden Sapphire, Earth an irradiated blue Diamond, Mars a Ruby, Jupiter an Opal, Saturn a Cats Eye Chrysoberyl with an inlaid 24k gold ring, Uranus a green Sapphire, Neptune a blue Sapphire and Pluto a black Diamond. What really makes this ring special is that the band of meteorite spins independent of the gold ring, so when it is on, the planets rotate around the wearer’s finger. This ring weighs 26 grams, is 10 mm wide and is a size 11.5. It cannot be sized, but can be custom made in any size. There is also a narrower, 8.5 mm wide version available. The price of the ring is $4200.00 as shown, while the narrower version is $3600.00

Bargain! Although I’m not a big fan of gold so I’d probably ask for it in Platinum just to add a little to the cost…

Reminds me of the guy on Reddit who forged his own wedding ring out of space rock!

Awesome Spider Robot Toy!

The video above is a sneak peek at a work in progress remote controlled robot spider with interchangeable guns that fire: ping pong balls, foam discs, and foam darts. It looks like the kind of thing that I would have loved as a kid.
