He has a large sports activities card and memorabilia assortment stored away in containers in mint to close mint situation, accumulating worth till he is in a position to retire, promote all of it, and use the proceeds to take my mother on journeys across the nation. Gathering sports activities souvenirs has been his pastime so long as I can keep in mind.
I haven’t got a lot in the way in which of sports activities tchotchkes, solely the occasional Seahawks collectible. My ardour for amassing has at all times been a bit geekier. It began with keychains, then X-Males playing cards — lord I had and possibly nonetheless have lots of of these — earlier than shifting onto video video games. Through the Wii and DS eras, I purchased each recreation I might. After I realized I might by no means have time to play all of these video games, nor need to for a lot of of them, I shifted my focus to online game motion figures.

From the straight-up anime Dragon Ball FighterZ to final month’s Purple Useless Redemption 2, the artwork route, character designs, and landscapes discovered on this yr’s releases have been nothing wanting superb. Interested by Dragon Quest Illustrations bought me questioning which titles from 2018 I might like to see an artwork guide of. So many are already out there, together with God of Conflict, Spider-Man, and Murderer’s Creed Odyssey, however for my cash, I might like to see Onion Video games put out a guide on Black Chicken.
Actually, the whole thing of the Onion Video games library needs to be placed on paper, however Black Chicken is actually an impressive murals. It is solely 4 ranges lengthy, however every stage is effervescent with element, secrets and techniques, and designs that show there’s nonetheless a lot energy in excellent pixel artwork. The third stage of that recreation is surely probably the most superbly designed 2D stage I’ve ever seen and I might like nothing greater than to get a large artwork print of it framed and hanging from my bed room wall.
