Happy birthday guys :)

I'm starting a tool assisted speedrun (TAS) for Sonic Rush on the DS.
An emulator has been released that finally makes this possible, and I'm pretty interested in pushing Rush to its' limits.

I've already obsoleted this run by half a second, and I'm still half a second behind the fastest recorded run I've been able to find. I still need to shave off another 2 seconds according to the leader board at soniccenter.

It still has a ways to go, plenty of bugs, crashes, and incompatibilities.
Plus I don't think a single game is emulated at 100% yet (I removed slow down frame by frame in the video)

Oh man this is briliant. My birthday is in a month from now.
And today I receive a huge package from musicstore.
I am the only one home so I had to take it in.
Now I just have to wait a month until I can play on the damn guitar. Which by the way, is an Epiphone Les Paul Standard Ebony.
But it doesn't make a whole lot of sense that it's here a month early.

I picked up a guitar once or twice. I always felt like it just wasn't meant for me. But recently, I've played some Rock Band. That is fun!

Huh? Atnas, what are you up to : D

Pixel art for a commercial project and a digital painting for my own indulgence at the same time. I get the principles of each media mixed up with the other sometimes c:

You should do it alittle longer. In the start it's boring. But after you've done it a while and really start being able to play along with your favourite songs it becomes fun.
It's just like reading a book that needs some time getting into it.

Well my girlfriend just broke up with me. My first pretty serious relationship... And man it feels like being hit in the head with a sledgehammer.

Well, everyday consists of making pixel art for a commercial project, heh, which is lucky for me! Also everyday when in a bad mood is spent in anguish over making a game I wouldn't like to play myself, but that's life! Hah!

Right now I'm totally trying to create a little shooter mockup because because .. @ n @ I need to do pixel art for personal purposes or my pixel bone with wither and break! I'll just try to get everything I wanna add down (or at least a little more) and I'll post it! Holy moly me posting an art thread in pixelation, now that'd be something!

I recently discover this link to one of the craziest Japanese snes games I have ever seen and thought people here would enjoy.
I would defiantly play if it was still around. Where do the Japanese get such ideas from and has anyone ever seen anything quite as bizarre as this before?

love it!


PS. I am a big fan of this site and enjoy the amazing talent of its members.
Its entertaining even if you aren't a pixel artist, keep up the good work!
