Lucy- Don’t Read This Post

As everyone knows… the symbology of the ring represents the eternity of the ‘perpetual fall’. Appropriate, no? by Yuumei Too– it’s kind of funny how the Portal Rings suggest the duality of never being apart/never being able to get away. Yes… I think that pretty well sums up the dichotomous phases of a relationship. via […]

A Series of Unfortunate Events

Posted: 12th August 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, games, geek stuff

Ugh. Right– to start with, I’ve done minimal research on this… so I don’t know what I’m talking about.  I’m a monkey, for godsake!  But I know what I’ve heard. Extra Credits is no longer with the Escapist.  While I was not a ‘regular’ viewer of Extra Credits, that doesn’t stop me from recognizing that […]

The Joys of Rivalry and Escalation

Posted: 10th August 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, design, games, geek stuff

Workers at Ubisoft Montreuil in France clearly have a lot of time on their hands.  And Post-it notes.  They started creating very accurate representations of pixilated characters.  However, as all good neighbors do, the BNP bank across the way felt compelled to ‘keep up’, and countered with some art of their own. obviously, the next […]

Swamp Ass

PSA a Break original. You know… if geekdom were ever to have its own patron saint, this man would be wearing the pointy hat. [something, something Bruce Campbell] What?  Oh… alright.  Cage match.  Whoever lives gets the hat.  And the power. Afer all… there can be only one.   found via Topless Robot

Mario’s Nightmares

Artist Mike Puncekar has reimagined several of the adversaries from the worlds of Mario. Pictured: Bob-omb and Piranha Plant. also of note are the Goomba and Shy-Guy.  Truly disturbing. and on a tangential note… To verify the name of the Piranha Plant, I typed that name into the ‘google’ field.  One of the suggestions that […]

For All Those Video Games That Pissed You Off…

It’s time for payback. This is a functional urinal composed of SNES cartridges. Sort of appropriate that the blocky constructions gives it a 16 bit quality in appearance. found via Geekologie

I’m not much into the FPS games… but this looks pretty good. Wonder if it’s available for the PSP? found via Stupid Evil Bastard

Portal 2 Comic

Posted: 8th April 2011 by 7ucyClark in design, games, geek stuff

I love the marketing blitz Valve is executing to promote Portal 2. The latest is a comic strip that gives a little back-story to the first game. There’s a special place in my heart for manufacturer’s that take the time to make promotional material entertaining… turning what is basically an advertisement into a cookie. I […]
