Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist ‘Ryu’ [trailer]

Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is a short live action series adapted from the game. The series will tell the story of Ken, Ryu, Akuma and Gouken, and their relationship. Going by the trailer alone, it looks much better than the awful Chun-li movie that basically Hadouken-ed cinema for street fighter. The live action series will debut in May on TV, DVD, Blu-Ray and YouTube.

Papercraft Illustrations of Classic Nintendo Games

Canadian artist Steph Caskenette‘s papercraft renderings of scenes from classic Nintendo games are wonderful. The touch of paper makes these good old games and memories look exquisite with an added teaspoon of nostalgia. The images were not created by using actual paper, but the digital effect works just as good for the purpose. Prints available on RedBubble.

Age of Empires Main Menu Done in Paint

Age of Empires II, the game we loved so much, and its glorious menu to start your glorious campaign. What makes it even better is that artist Jean Bohlen made this in MS Paint, which should be like one of the most difficult things to use for actual art. It took the artist roughly 24 hours to complete this piece. This was submitted to Reddit, where it got some well deserved attention. The discussion on Reddit included this comment by user KarlPilkingtonsBrain, which is just too good to pass up:

Video Shows Off Every NES Title Screen, Makes It In 3 Hours

The video claims to cover every single Nintendo start screen in alphabetical order. It covers them all in nearly three hours, taking the viewer on quite a trip. A small chance exists that the list may not be 100% complete, given the sheer number and volume, though we’re inclined to believe they are all there. If you have the patience, run through the three hours of start screens, or maybe just watch some random spots (like we did).
