A Little Bit On The Free Nintendo X-Mas Card Side: Artist Ken Wong sent us quite the ego-boosting email about his free Nintendo Christmas cards that he’s giving away with every print order from his site. He’ll even hand-draw Nintendo characters in the cards for you!
Love your website, read it every day. I’m a geek, artist, and art director (AD on Alice: Madness Returns, not sure if that’s your flavor or not [Editor’s note: It IS! —bk]).
I just wanted to let you know I’m running a promo - giving away some Nintendo-inspired xmas cards. I’ve attached the image, and the info page below.
ACK! An awesome person in the gaming industry reads our site! And did you read the part about him attaching the image and info page below? Be still our nerdy hearts! We’re coming up in the world!
Pardon us while our inflated heads carry us into the clouds like a hidden area in Super Mario Bros. 3.
The Last Metroid is in Captivity
And yet, a bounty hunter’s life doesn’t get any easier. Samus Aran still has rival hunters and evil doppelgangers to take care of. Matt Synowicz (a.k.a. spaghetti016) has her primed and ready to redeploy to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in this illustration.
Screw Attack Samus
For the anniversary edition cover of Screw Attack drawn by Gonzalo Ordóñez Arias (a.k.a. Genzoman), it’s only fitting that it should feature Samus Aran herself, the character that’s mastered the technique that the site was named after.
8-bit Game Character Model Kits
Ty Lettau made these 8-bit model kits for classic videogame characters Mario, Link and Samus. This totally takes us back to the days of putting together plastic robots on the kitchen table, getting glue everywhere, and then finally giving up after breaking most of the pieces while trying to snap them out. Ah, childhood…
Galactic Bounty Hunter
Timothy Lim (a.k.a. ninjaink) combines Samus Aran and Boba Fett to create one bad ass set of armor capable of taking on any hostile alien species it encounters.
