I dunno if it looks as good as it should after so long. But it’s something.

Adaptation Is A Tricky Thing

For example, this comic book version of Doom. It’s the most insane thing I’ve read in a while, and yet, it kinda nails it.

A good old fashioned bunch-of-funny-drawings post

Here’s a link to a compilation of funny takes on “pop icons” (mostly video game characters or Star Wars references, actually), which I’m sure we’ve all seen a few but not all of before, and which may or may not have been commissioned specifically to appear on t-shirts. For me the seventh one down is worth the price of admission alone.

Little Funny Planet!

I’ve been LBP-ing a lot of LBP lately, so I thought, hey, why not an LBP related post?  And, what better theme for said post than humour?  Because we all like to be tickled by Sackboys, don’t we?

Fun Facts (brought to you buy Wikipedia)

The Legend of Zelda was principally inspired by Shigeru Miyamoto's explorations as a young boy in the hillsides surrounding his childhood home in Kyoto, Japan where he ventured into forests with secluded lakes, caves, and rural villages. According to Miyamoto, one of his most memorable experiences was the discovery of a cave entrance in the middle of the woods. After some hesitation, he apprehensively entered the cave, and explored its depths with the aid of a lantern. Miyamoto has referred to the creation of the Zelda games as an attempt to bring to life a “miniature garden” for players to play with in each game of the series.

Hearing of American novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife Zelda, Miyamoto thought the name sounded "pleasant and significant". Paying tribute, he chose to name the princess after her, and titled his creation The Legend of Zelda.

Here’s something different. A video game where you interact with the environment and attack your enemies by yelling into your microphone. Apparently this video was shot by Michael J. Fox, but you can see enough to get the idea.

If you’re wondering why the game seems so low-tech/old school (the graphics for the most part appear to be ripped from the first Zelda game and Space Invaders), it was conceptualized and created in under 2 days. This was produced as a part of the Global Game Jam, every year during which hundreds (thousands?) of creative computer geeks gather together in clusters around the world for an entire weekend and crank out a ton of little games.
