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?
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.
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.
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.**
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.)
Making it’s premiere at this years SXSW, here’s a re-imagining of everyone’s favorite Italian plumber. Now with more hallucinations and a cool indie soundtrack. Get your scarves and ironic glasses and enjoy. (via I Watch Stuff)
THWOMP is playing at Broken City next Wednesday. Joining us will be Black Wizard from New Westminster, BC. And also Grey Screen, a chiptune artist from Calgary. Come down around 7 p.m. to cheer us on as we destroy everyone at Broken City Magic night, then watch us rock out. That’s right, this night is going to be so nerdy it may rip a hole in the space time continuum. Plus $3.50 Lucky and FREE PIZZA!!!
