NERDpillo

Although I prefer the awesomeness of SpriteStitch.com, and the endless supply of patterns (not to mention helpful people), NERDpillo has made it one step closer to being done, by gathering all the supplies you'll need to actually make one of those awesome video game map cross-stitches. #

2016.03.05 OpenEmu

OpenEmu

I know this came out a while ago, but I was just reminded of it (in my massive browser tab clean-up and conversion). I love old video games. I only wish there was a way to legally purchase the ROMs of the games I like the most. Still, this is super cool. #

FEZ OST

Years ago while playing Fez (which, I enjoyed more than any game I had played in a while), my mind was basically melted at the awesome combination of the gameplay, and the music (this is roughly the version of it that I heard while playing). Unsurprisingly, the music is enjoyable all by itself, and after having this tab open in my browser for years, I finally ponied up the paltry sum to own it for myself (and say thanks to Disasterpeace). #

Abandonauts - Adam Atomic

Adam "Atomic" Satlsman (of Canabalt fame) put these files out the other day for any/all to use. I'm not a game developer, nor do I ever intend to be, but some part of me wants to hang on to these files... just in case I might need them for something. #

2014.08.30 Master of Play - The New Yorker

Master of Play - The New Yorker

What an interesting view into Shigeru Miyamoto - a man to whom I owe many thanks for taking my imagination to great places. I've had this sitting on my to-read list for a while, but once I actually started, I felt like I couldn't stop. I'm not sure I could go so far as to read a whole novel about him (yet), but this certainly filled my need for now. #

2014.08.20 The Sailor's Dream by Simogo

The Sailor's Dream by Simogo

This is a bit out of my norm, but I'm looking forward to this game. I've played other games by Simogo, and have really liked them. The concept and artwork behind this are appealing, and I find myself sucked in. #

2014.07.07 The Rise of Nintendo: A Story in 8 Bits

The Rise of Nintendo: A Story in 8 Bits

This was a great, and rather quick read about some of the history of a company that makes some of my favorite products. This is an excerpt of Console Wars, by Blake Harris. I knew Nintendo started as a playing card "company", but didn't know the pieces in between (nor the interesting lawsuit by MCA Universal in regards to King Kong). I'd be curious to know if the book is as good as this one excerpt. (credit to my brother for sending me this article nearly two months ago) #

2014.02.01 The Museum of Mario

The Museum of Mario

Yet another item I forgot to link to a while ago. I enjoyed this trip down memory lane for the various version of Mario. Admittedly, the first Mario I beat was actually Super Mario Bros. 2 (which some would call an abomination), but the introduction of Toad into the family has changed things forever. #

It's Dangerous to Post Flyers Alone - Take This

This Zelda flyer is an old find, but I've been wanting to link to this for a while. Add this the other useless flyers and those out there. #

2013.08.12 RetroN 3 NES/SNES/SEGA

RetroN 3 NES/SNES/SEGA

I'm not sure why I don't own one of these. It plays two of my favorite systems. Really, I'd love for it to have the N64 instead of the Sega piece, but still. $60, and I'm on my way to retro gaming happiness. #
