Konami has announced the game line-up for their upcoming PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 mini consoles, featuring some extremely flashy title animations for many games. This is a delicious bit of motion graphics animation work, even if you're not familiar with the consoles or games.

A new handheld was announced today by Panic, publishers of Firewatch and the upcoming Untitled Goose Game.

This is Playdate.

It has a crank for control input, a black-and-white screen, and comes with a "season" of new games designed specifically for Playdate. One new game every week for twelve weeks.

Priced at $149, expected to arrive in 2020. They've posted a thread with more information about its creation over on Twitter.

I learned about The Others through this article about another great use of slit-scan. Time displacement is such a deceptively powerful tool.

Picked up the trial version of Pinegrow for some web-development while I take a quick break from current projects, and I've been making good use of my time this week.

Built myself a cute little "about" page and a fancy navigation menu. ✨🦊✨

I believe I have made a mistake of sizable proportions. Blu-ray is there for size comparison.

Literally four full days next week where I'm just doing nothing but watching speedruns, thanks to AGDQ. Worth it imo. (times are in my timezone lol, see schedule) gamesdonequick.com/schedule

New toy has arrived. ✨ ps-io.com

Need to get that tiny little chip installed before I can use it (it's like half an inch square and needs to be soldered), but I'm glad to finally have this in my hands!

Please witness this extremely cute diorama that I saw at the mall today, thank you

Found a few old gifs of Lollie modded into Retro City Rampage. πŸ”₯🦊πŸ”₯

At the time, I half-considered scanning it and cleaning it up for translation. The only reason why I didn't was because in order to get a perfect scan, I'd have to carefully dismantle the book.

But it's too good to dismantle! I'd have to get a second copy, I couldn't dismantle my only copy of this cool release. But as if I'd ever find a second copy of a fan-comic from 1991, based on an anime from 1983.

So I was going through my merch stash tonight and uh, well. It turns out I forgot something.

Back in 2013, I bought up a bunch of Sherlock Hound merch, grabbing whatever looked cute or interesting.

Among the stuff I picked up: "Holmes of Love and Youth", a collection of parody comics from 1991. Really well-made, cool presentation. The cover is corrugated card-stock with foil emboss, it's kind of ridiculous.
