Legend Of Zelda: The Gathering

I'd tap this.

So this is awesome. A contributor over at GamesRadar put together this 242-card Magic the Gathering set based on everyone’s favorite Hylian ass-kicker Link and the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Does anyone have a color printer and a few hours?

And Now A Message From Nathan Fillion

I’m not sure if this is the biggest problem facing society right now…but it is the grossest. Here Captain Malcolm Reynolds informs us about a problem that’s affected every gamer. Take it away Castle.

More Like Game of Awesome

Man, do we love combinations of things. We love Game of Thrones, the epic HBO show based on the George R.R. Martin novels and we love video game music. We’re pretty sure it would make for an epic SNES RPG. Not sure Nintendo would have approved of so much nudity and dire wolf face maulings, but this is how it would sound.

Play the Sad Walking Away Music…

(...not actually a newspaper story)

Unfortunately our performance at the Calgary Comic Expo on Saturday, June 18 has been cancelled. Due to technical issues and the last minute nature of the problems there was nothing we could do. We’ll all be hanging out all weekend. Hopefully we’ll be back in 2012.

THWOMP @ Broken City April 29!

Hello THWOMP fans, gamers, nerds, aficionados, and mom.

The legendary Broken City in their vast, ageless wisdom is having us back already to rock the stage next Friday! Come hither with your flanel shirts, tight jeans, it-looks-like-I-don’t-care-but-I-do hair, and your devil may care attitude and freakin’ ROCK OUT!

We are playing with the Outlaws of Ravenhurst, which is certainly a name to be reckoned with! In the spirit of the upcoming election, we will once again poll the audience to determine which epic, face-melting video game soundtracks they would like us to play, and then elect Stephen Harper anyway. Er, wait, I think I mixed my metaphors. Anyway, if you’re there early enough you may be able to throw your two cents in and perhaps we will listen.*

* Hint: throwing in a quantity greater than two cents will increase your odds of having your opinion matter. This is democracy, after all. This ain’t no Libya.**

** What? Too soon?

Our Favorite Instrument…The Game Boy

After having the privilege of playing with Grey Screen last month at Broken City, we thought we’d share this video about creating music using everyone’s favorite, battery sucking video game artifact. The Game Boy. Unlike Grey Screen this guy makes music a different way.

(via Destructoid … the link also has a Game Boy version of Rebecca Black’s horribleness…Friday…we’re sorry.)
