While I personally wasn’t that into Duck Hunt, the classic shooting game on the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System, I have to say that this piece of art that combines pixel art with traditional art is lots of fun.
Obvious pun is obvious, so I’ll stop there and let you look at the thing itself:
Kodykoala – who also made the Yoshi Mecha and Zombie Yoshi statues – used a vinyl Gutsman as well as “parts from random robots and things” to make this statue.
Ah, sex education! Thanks to this 8-bit parody, you won’t have to explain the birds and the bees to anyone. Just link to this video, and they’ll know all about safe sex.
It’s called Game On and it’s a funny and educational animation created by the Leicestershire Teenage Pregnancy Partnership in the UK.
Fans of the classic Mega Man/Rockman franchise rejoice – you can now decorate your room with these awesomely awesome Mega Man pixel wall graphics from Blik.
Officially licensed by Capcom, the decals include a full set of Mega Man characters, including Fire Man, Bomb Man, Cut Man, Ice Man, Electro Man and Guts Man.
Like many Japanese games, Mega Man has so many series that it warrants an intra-mash-up in itself: Original Series vs. Legends vs. X vs. Battle Network vs. Star Force. Mega Man vs. Mega Man, if you will.
What every evil robot baby wants: a Mr. Masters poster, featuring 80 of the vilest Robot Masters that Mega Man has ever faced, mashed-up with Mr. Men characters.
These cute villains were drawn by Steve Napierski.
Have you ever had video game-like dreams? Mike aka OrinCreed had one such dream. Fortunately, he and his friends were able to translate his dream into a video. Mike says I Dream in Retro is “based heavily on a dream I had that was caused by a long day of playing NES, SNES, and Genesis.
Mega Man is one of the classic video game series and has a loyal following, which of course Capcom has capitalized on by releasing about 12 and a half billion Mega Man games in the last 12 years or so.
Itching for a classic platforming game? Why not revisit the original Super Mario Bros.? Oh sure, you’ve finished it tons of times, but that’s with Mario. Now you can adventure on the Mushroom Kingdom with Link, Samus, Simon Belmont, Mega Man and – this is just so unfair – Bill from Contra in Super Mario Crossover.
I don’t how else to say this, but the MegaMan Effect is a very…Windowish application, but I sure am glad it’s available to us Mac users. When it’s turned on, every app that you launch gets the Mega Man II level boss introduction.
Have you beaten Mega Man 10 yet? Celebrate that special day (or night, or late night, or early morning) by getting yourself a mint condition poster of the game, featuring painfully retro art. Seller teammastermarc says that the poster was originally distributed at the Nintendo World store and will never be made again.
Mega Man fans rejoice! Or not. Footage of Mega Man 10, the upcoming retro-sequel taken at the recently concluded CES 2010 has popped up on the internets. But will you, the theoretical hardcore gamer, be insulted by the presence of an Easy mode in the latest of Masochist Man Mega Man’s adventures?
At least, the Mega Man mod for Doom 2–yes, Doom 2–is adorable in theory. The little blue guy himself is pretty adorable, sure, and the color palette we’re treated to here certainly makes this the most cheerful death match.
Mega Man fan Nicholas may not have scored the top spot in Capcom Unity’s Mega Man tribute contest, but he has certainly won my heart with his colorful and pixelated light-up figure.
Now, at this point, you may be thinking “colorful?
