This could be the reason I use to get a Roomba, these custom Nintendo Roomba covers were created for the SUPER iam8bit Art Exhibit. Featuring Koopa shells, a Goomba from the super mario series of games and an Octorock from the Legend of Zelda.
I must admit that I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t a blue shell with wings, can you imaging how scary that would be if it started following you?
I’ve been listening to a lot of chip-tunes lately mainly because I find that they oddly increase my concentration. Maybe it’s something innate in me that associates the stream of bleeps and bloops with playing really difficult video games?
Anyway the above album by Inverse Phase is a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Petty hate machine and it’s pretty good.
If you are interested in more chip tunes it’s worth noting that 8 Bit Weapon have recently released a collection of all their music that isn’t licensed to other people for the low price of $20.
Also if you have played the amazing iOS game Super Hexagon, then you can’t have missed the awesome sountrack by Chipzel, which is available to buy for just £2.
Final Fantasy: Random Encounter is a new album by The OC Remix (OC stands for over clocked) featuring metal remixes and compositions based on the music of the first Final Fantasy game. The OC Remix are a collective of artists who specialize in making remixes and covers of video game music.
I think this probably applies to how the definition of whats cool in Anime and video games has changed over the past 15 or so years. Male lead characters these days are disheveled, broody, and effeminate exuding a why am I doing this rather than a I can do this attitude.
This from the company that wrote a character who could suplex a train!
I guess it would be wrong to have an actual Little Sister pin-up as they are children, but once the creepy kids from Bio-Shock grow up apparently they fill out quite nicely. This Image above is by Martin Abel and is pretty awesome.
It worries me how many of my friends would actually probably enjoy this game… I can’t find the original source of the image unfortunately though…
I know nothing of knitting but I assume that you could probably make a game out of twiddling the two analogue sticks to simulate the needles. Maybe press a button to change the colour of the yarn? Or Hold the triggers to do some kind of funky knot…
