ArmchairTitan – Impractical Street Fighter

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014 at 2:20 am | Video

Street Fighter IV is actually pretty weird beneath the surface. YouTube user ArmchairTitan wows us with ridiculous combos you’ll never see outside of training mode and some priceless editing. This ought to help hold us until we hear more about Street Fighter V‘s mechanics, if they’ll be anywhere near this crazy.

QBillion

Sunday, December 7th, 2014 at 4:32 pm | Game | Video

From my pile of forgotten Game Boy carts comes QBillion. You have a top-down view of stacks of boxes. The goal is to reduce these boxes to a single flat layer. Once you wrap your head around that, it’s intuitive, but the puzzles get downright fiendish. 15 years later, the developer is gone, the copyright has lapsed, and a young developer has made a free HTML5 remake.

Yup, this is the HD version. Everything is about double the resolution of the Game Boy game. Click here to play.

Fuzichoco

When I’m browsing around Pixiv and something that jumps out at me with its colors and style, it usually belongs to Fuzichoco. She comes up time and time again on Pixiv’s staff picks blog Pixiv Spotlight with her modern take on traditional Japanese themes. She even made the box art for her favorite drawing program, openCanvas 6, and she has an online store.

Fuzichoco requests not to republish her work, so this Pixiv link is all you're getting from me. She has plenty of really great work, so please click all the links and look around. It was tough narrowing it down to just one.

Buying Gift Cards for the Discounts

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014 at 2:39 am | Image

Grocery stores chains like Giant Eagle and Kroger like to give discounts on fuel when you buy gift cards. If they have gift cards for places I’m already going to anyway, I use them as much as possible. I even buy GameStop gift cards that I take to GameStop to buy gift cards for other places, earning points twice. Gift cards have their own problems but save money when you can by buying them for yourself.

The real reason for this post was to show off this wall of Fuelperks discounts I just got. Half of that gift card balance was spent before I even left the Giant Eagle parking lot.

Marcokarty’s International Superstar Soccer Deluxe TAS

Saturday, November 15th, 2014 at 4:00 am | Video

I love watching people break games. This tool-assisted glitchfest of the SNES International Superstar Soccer Deluxe replaces the referees with dogs that apparently can’t keep score and don’t take issue with players messing around behind the goals. If you like this, the mad scientists at TASVideos have plenty more.
