So I’ve been feeling really nostalgic lately, so I’ve been digging deep into my past for some inspiration, and this week, we are going to dive into some of my very favorite games from the old console systems. That’s right. Nintendo, Sega Genesis (Mega Drive), Super Nintendo (Even some Arcade Games in here). The great ones. Here are some of my favorite games from those systems, looking back now, its awesome (and inspirational) to look at the box art that I completely disregarded as a kid, threw it in the corner so I could play the game. But the box art is awesome too! Hope you guys get some inspiration (and remember good times) with me.

And of course, I linked all these images to the appropriate wikipedia page – so good luck getting anything done today. haha

Augmented reality app concept conjures movie scenes shot in your location (video)

AR technology has been getting seriously powerful recently, but we still need smart little ideas like this to keep us interested. “Augmented Reality Cinema” is a concept which would spot when you’re in a famous movie location and then trigger playback of the relevant scene. Although we can’t be sure the app actually works yet, the video after the break does at least show off the idea with some memorable London clips, including the classic post-infestation Westminster Bridge scene from 28 Days Later. If the designers ever need movie fans to go around tagging cinematic locations, then obviously we’re keen to register our interest.

As usual, we’ll search for logos in these galleries: LogopondLogo FavesLogo MooseLogo from DreamsLogo GalaWS LogosThe Logo Mix and Wolda. We hope you all enjoy our selection! Cheers. 😉

Back in the early 2000’s I remember that people really loved that pixelated style (Pixel Art) that E-boy and other pixel artists developed. It’s awesome because it remind us that videogame fell and got all that isometry techniques that are pretty hard to master. Back in those days, I quite remember the artworks of Rod Hunt, they are isometric as the other artists of this genre, but they got something really interesting about it: they are not squared and pixelated illustrations, they are all drawed.

Well, enough talking guys, I think you will dig his style as much as me, also fell free to access his Website and find some awesome Case-studies of his pieces.
