Context-Free Patent Art (via my buddy Jason)
A little foul-mouthed in places (but not really, I just feel obligated to say that), but the payoff is worth it. You can watch the full-sized version here.
(I just noticed this is post 1,001. Nat’s Geometry Wars 2 post was our 1,000th post. Woohoo!)
I linked to the first article in this series a little while ago. Here’s the second part. (I loved the mention of The Amazon from the NES game Pro Wrestling. I hated getting my face eaten by that guy!)
Continuing his saga through the gaming systems that formed him, TODD LEVIN recounts the lessons found in his first Nintendo, particularly as taught by the highs and lows of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out.
Link. Another funny read.
It’s an oldie, but goodie. Here’s a little tribute to our gaming Valentines:
From the underrated sports site, Joe Sports Fan, I present for you entertainment: Iron Mike’s Real Legacy, a look at Mike Tyson’s finest hour: Super Punch-Out for the SNES. It’s hilarious. Read the whole thing. Talking about King Hippo:
Hippo was a cross between Sloth Fratelli and George “the Animal” Steele, a massive, somewhat retarded beast that lacked the skills to stick with the polished Mac.
Anyone who can include references to the Goonies and classic WWF wrestlers in the same sentence is okay in my book.
If you’ve spent any amount of time hanging around in Piken Square you’ve probably picked up quite a number of these curious little charms… but now you can have your very own handmade replica!
I don’t link Fark much for a variety of reasons, but this one was too good to pass up – a Fark Photoshop, taking violent video games and make them Jack Thompson-friendly.
(Thanks, Bobster, for the tip)
This may rank as my favorite link ever – If World War II Was an RTS. (thanks to AFK Gamer for the million laughs). Abso-fricking-lutely hilarious. I haven’t laughed this hard in years. I’m still wiping the tears of joy and laughter away. Prepare to laugh:
Hitler[AoE]: america hax, u had depression and now u got a huge fockin army
Hitler[AoE]: thats bullsh1t u hacker
Stalin: church help me
Churchill: like u helped me before? sure ill just sit here
Stalin: dont be an arss
Churchill: dont be a commie. oops too late
