Dead End Thrills is a website aiming to “strip away the distractions of gameplay and provide lovingly captured snapshots of these virtual worlds and their inhabitants." The website is perhaps comparable to a "unit stills photographer on a movie set" capturing a "visual document" worthy of any art gallery. The stills provided on their site are carefully chosen and quite breathtaking. It includes games such as Mass Effect, Minecraft, Batman: Arkham City and much more. The layout for the page is a work of art itself as well. Check out Dead End Thrills for a hours of unique artistic fun, because who says video games aren’t artistic?
With all of the “Legend of Zelda” fans out there you’d think you could buy yourself a piece of the triforce that shines and glows like a light in the dark. We have the technology so why not a decent quality product? Well, truth be told there is actually a lamp you can buy and it’s good-quality handmade. It can be hung from above like a lantern or rest on a desk or side table (or anywhere for that matter). This is a intuitively designed product that is perfect for any die-hard Zelda fans. Be sure to get your order in next time you shop online.
This fan-artist takes brilliant classic, modern and fan-made Sonic the Hedgehog moments and brings them to life. His art spans from the memorable boss fights (such as the Checker Wrecker) to some of the long forgotten classics (such as the amazing Sonic Advance trilogy). If you’re looking to see what 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit Sonic the Hedgehog would probably look like in real life or you’re just looking to see your former glory from the good old days, check this artist out. If you just like the 3D action of the newer games, this is also for you.
