When a new video game console hits the market, one of the main topics is always the launch lineup. At 72Pins, it is pretty safe to assume that we have assembled the single greatest video game launch lineup in the history of all mankind.
Today is a great day to be a fan of video game art.

My buddy/worst enemy Ron Workman launched his latest project today. He told me about this idea months and months ago and I know how hard he and his team have worked to get to this point.
Good luck, Ron. I hope you sell a million of these fucking things.
Lydia died tonight. We were ambushed by Falmers in Liar’s Retreat. Normally Falmers don’t present much danger, but we were completely overwhelmed. Lydia ran off, as she would always do, into a random room alone while I stood in the main hall fighting off the magic-powered Falmers. When the dust settled, and the battle was over, I found her body crumpled up in a heap in a side room.
Farewell Lydia. I know you were honor bound to “carry my burdens” and follow me to the ends of the world in back, but overtime you became more than a stupid AI partner who would ALWAYS set off any trap we’d come across. You became my friend.
And sure, I could always reload my save to a happier time when you were still alive…but I really don’t feel like losing two hours of progress. My bad.
Also, sorry I stripped your dead body of all of your clothes and propped you up on all fours just outside the entrance of Liar’s Retreat. The weapons and armor you had were pretty good and I wanted to give them to the next random Housecarl I gain.
You best be sitting comfortably, because it is time.
Doc’s got Bald Bull’s bicycle ready, and Little Mac’s all dolled up in his shocking pink training gear.
Actually it looks like Doc is trying to get away from Little Mac because he’s embarrassing him.
Remy is liveblogging his quest on the World Circuit in Punch-Out. You best be paying attention. We have the next World Champion in our midst.
Abobo’s Big Adventure: The Ultimate Tribute to the NES
Abobo’s son has been kidnapped and now it’s up to you to help Abobo fight his way through some of the greatest NES games of all time in order to rescue him.
Not only does Abobo have to fight through these classic games, but he has to adapt to their varying gameplay styles. Gameplay ranges from beatemup, to underwater platformer, to side-scroller, to top-down dungeon crawler, wrestling, run-and-gun, boxing, and MOAR!
A fun mashup of classic NES games. I only made it to the second stage, which is, of course, a water world.
The Elder Scrolls Adventures with the Dovahkids
I’m sure this has made the rounds but I don’t care. This is amazing and everyone should watch it. Why is this not a real show!?

As I’ve mentioned before here at ComicsAlliance, my love of the bizarre, over-the-top side of popular art doesn’t stop with comics. The strange world of VHS boxes from the golden age of the video store, the lurid, painted pulp covers, I love that stuff. And given that I have fond memories of video store shelves lined with NES games, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I love those too.
That’s why Neil Karassik’s Oh, Videogames has quickly become my new favorite website. Over the past eight months, Karassik has been compiling the best of the worst of retro gaming boxes, from the sublime to the downright inexplicable. So today, I’ve picked out my favorites to bring you Twenty of the Strangest Pieces of Video Game Box Art Ever!
See more and read Sims’ commentary at ComicsAlliance.
And I helped!
So if you like me, you pretty much have to read this.
I couldn’t get a good picture of this in action so watch the video and trust me when I say this is a pretty awesome screen saver. It is essentially an emulator that can record you playing a game, as well as download videos from other players, and displays them as a screen saver that lets you jump into any game (rom) that you have on your computer.
