Every Christmas, My Uncle Gets Drunk And Tells The Story About… Space Jam On VHS

December 17, 2012 - By - Tags: ,

Even though everyone’s well aware of Adam and Daniel’s LA Game Space Kickstarter triumph, I still feel the need the post the image above, if only because there is no better way to say congrats than a Punch-Out related Photoshop (by Jinsoo An).

Plus it’s to help cue the next image, of the celebratory pizza party that the Robezzolis had immediately afterward…

It’s also an excuse for another Instragram dump! Similar to what we see above, here we have another touching father and son moment at a pizzeria that Chris Person caught…

Plus one between father and daughter: “Daddy? How about Final Fantasy Tactics?” “Good choice, honey.”

Okay, but what about neighborly love? As embodied in everyone’s favorite episode of Louie, which Maré is such a fan of that he’s watching it twice at once…

Speaking of handhelds, I’m a dude and all, but there is no denying that pink looks great on such things, as Risse S proves…

And Elliot Trinidad shows how beautiful sunshines at the beach are best captured…

Turns out, as Daruma Studio demonstrates, the Game Boy camera is also compatible with BMOs…

Heather Campbell recently got a Wii U and she too was not pleased with the ginormous install that’s necessary when you first get one (at least she managed to find an excuse to use that manga photo app)…

Kevin Panetta meanwhile has another example of Nintendo + pathos…

And here’s another, plus a reminder from Rob Schmuck that the very last issue of Nintendo Power is finally out…

Okay, enough about Nintendo; time for some of Sega’s glorious heritage, courtesy of Katie Morrison

Justin Volz likes plant-life, both the real and not so real (yet actually made real, thanks to Square Enix’s marketing machine)…

Mathew Kumar recently visited a friend, who apparently has a thing for punching and kicking…

I have no idea what game Ted is playing, but is sure looks cool doesn’t it?

At first I thought this shot was real, but apparently it’s a still from something called Amiga Memories that Astrofra put together…

Meanwhile, here’s a place that’s very real. I’m assuming it’s Zack Kotzer‘s bedroom or something…

Behold Dom Ferland and his attempts at figuring out Fez

Time to check in on my good pal Lamar Abrams and all sketches he’s been posting on Instragram, or at least the ones that have something to do with games…

Joel Carroll is another cartoonist buddy of mine, who mostly does drawings of Marvel or DC characters, though check out his awesome rendering of the ship from Xevious

Remember Ted’s SEGAZINE? Here’s a sneak peek look at Grace Thymine‘s contribution…

On related note, Jake Kazdal was in town the other day (you see, he worked on Rez, a game that Tetsuya Mizuguchi produced, as well as Space Channel 5, hence the connection). And here I am taking a picture of him taking a picture (he was amazed by how similar NYC is to Tokyo)…

Sticking with notable game industry personalities, let’s check in on SWERY, shall we? And today’s he’s… enjoying some fish and ale?

And sticking with food, POLSTYLE is enjoying some truly sad ramen, in every sense of the word…

Two weekends ago was the Rochester Chip Fest. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it, despite the super drool-worthy card. I’ve heard from various reports that Revengineers were the stars of the show, plus Bit Shifter‘s pic of them is also quite nice…

Meanwhile, this past weekend in NYC was the lo-bit fundraiser for CultureFix, which was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy. So local chiptuners decided to help raise awareness, including Batsly Adams. He brought out all his toys (check out the dual Sega Nomad action), which n0te was able to capture…

Not sure if it’s actually related or not, but who cares: fellow zinester Ryan Sands recently got his hands on an OP-1…

Even though Boyfriend Maker is no longer available, there are still plenty out there who are enjoying its mysterious ways, like Caroline Martin

The video game exhibit at the Smithsonian earlier this year got plenty of buzz. And plenty are talking about the one coming up at the Museum of Modern Art. Did everyone forget about the one at Museum of the Moving Image? It’s pretty awesome, and as Dave Roman shows, they even have a Virtual Boy!

Just in time for the Christmas is the new Cards Against Humanity Holiday Set that Danielle Lavoie just picked up…

Instead of posting yet another pic of me trying to get laid in Persona 4 Golden, since the consensus is that it’s kinda “creepy”, here instead is what I use to carry my Vita around: an old sock that Nickelodeon Magazine staffers got for Xmas one year…

Last night, Ted asked everyone to pass along pics of them enjoying his Pixel Fireplace. Well here’s another for the Flicker pool (though it’s not from me, but Tim Krings, and features both real and unreal flames)…

Finally, back to a subject we starting off with: congrats to the SPORTSFRIENDS Kickstarter for meeting its goal as well! Real quick, a little something I totally didn’t realize at first: Maré’s comic features Hilary Florido & Dave Mauro‘s arcade cabinets (from Heavenly Symphony)…
