With X-Men: Apocalypse on the way (and unfortunately coming down the road with some so-so reviews), it feels like a good time to dig up a few X-Men games to play around with for the next week or two.

Great classic video game systems such as the ColecoVision, TurboGrafx-16 and (the not-quite-as-great) 3DO may have vanished from most home entertainment centers long ago, but a number of collectors (like myself) still have a number of classic systems hooked up and on display when the old-school itch starts taking effect. However, it seems that world-class universities are getting in on the action too, as the University of Michigan has assembled their own Computer and Video Game Archive, thanks to Engineering Librarian and Video Game Archivist Dave Carter.

Soon after Twitter unvieled the newest rendition of their official trademark logo, it didn’t take too long for some people to reinterpret the new logo into an artistic work. Take illustrator Ape Lad, who used the outlines of the new Twitter logo to produce images of Link from the Zelda games, Wolverine, Phillip J. Fry from Futurama, Linus Van Pelt from Peanuts, Yoda, Bugs Bunny, Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story, etc. Here’s a link to the rest of his Twitter logo-inspired graphics on his Flickr account. Check out some extra images after the break in this post. Continue reading “New Twitter Logo = Awesome New Art!”
