Here’s a great article about classic ’90s videogame magazine, Mean Machines

The link to the article is here.

And below there’s a few pretty images for reference; just because I feel like I have to put something more than only a link in the post (which it true of all my posts on the iNCEPTIONAL blog):

The Lion King without Circle of Life is still brilliant

It really shows you just how amazing the animation is, even after 23 years.

PS. I just watched The Lion King in 3D on my Oculus Rift VR headset, inside a virtual cinema too, and it was utterly stunning (even with the Rift running at a relatively low resolution). I can’t believe Disney hasn’t converted basically all of its classic 2D feature-length animations into 3D like this.

Check out this fan-made concept for a Switch mini

Obviously, there’s no detachable Joy-Con in this design, and it wouldn’t come with a standard dock either (although, the designer claims it can still be used with the dock–except I don’t actually believe his design would fit in a standard dock without the analog sticks getting in the way), but it’s got most of the basics covered.

This stylish Pong coffee table is edging ever closer to commercial reality

I posted about this a while back. And now, with the Kickstarter coming to an end in a few days (less than two thousand dollars short of the target $250,000), it’s the perfect time for an update. Thankfully, it looks like they’re almost certain to get the money required in order to take the table into full production, which is great news. But, if you want to support the project, there’s no better time than now. I’ve added the Kickstarter video below, just so you can check it out quickly while you’re here:

And, sure, the final design isn’t quite a slick as the older original prototype—I love the curves on the original—but it’s still pretty sweet:

Old
New

If I had the money for a sweet retro-gaming coffee table like this, I’d definitely consider getting one.

I need the unofficial SNES/Super Famicom: a visual compendium

Man, Bitmap Books is knocking it out the part with these compendiums. If I had the money, I’d buy all of them. Here’s the link to the Kickstarter if you’re interested in backing the project.
