Picture of the Week- Pinup Video Game Girls and Interview with Artist Marques Cannon

Kratos- God of War

I featured Marques Cannons Pin-Up Video Game Girls back in August 2010 before I started Picture of the Week and I knew that one day I’d have to bring them back and feature his Video Girls Series again because I loved them so much! Marques is also the first artist I interviewed for PotW and I hope to interview more of the artists I feature whenever possible. Kratos is definitely my favorite reinterpretation!  Continue reading →

Mega (Wo)Man

Katamari Damacy

Dante from Devil May Cry

Sonic

Sonic and Mario Awkward Reunion

A friend from Otakus and Geeks told me about this video… HILARIOUS!! Poor poor Sonic, I really feel for him.

Video Game Minimalism: Less is More

Less is more in this case.  My super amazing brother showed me some of these minimalist video game posters a while ago (pre-blog).  And since sharing is caring I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I think they are very cute and clever!  If I still lived in a dorm I’d have some of these posters all over the walls… well at least my side of the room.  You can buy some video game minimalist shirts here and buy some  posters on here and through the artists links.

Hardcore gamers will be able to recognize all of these posters.  BUT I provided the cheat code just in case.

The posters are made from: Justin Russo, Infinite Continues, Chris and Ashley Browning.

Fanboys don’t worry the next post I will do is on superhero minimalist posters.

When Video Game Characters do the Internets

Here’s some funny pics from College Humor giving our favorite video game characters a twitter and facebook.

Here we go! *Mario voice*

Facebook status updates:


Twitter!

These aren’t real twitter accounts unfortunately.  If you know any game characters who have a twitter (i.e. some über-fan doing a really good job at pretending to be them) post it in the comments section!
