Here’s a book worth Kickstarting and then Coffeetabling*: a collection of Super Famicom boxart images, with full-color art and descriptions. It’s on Kickstarter until September 28, and I’m confident it’ll make its goal.

Coleco Mini Arcade being remade ⊟

Coleco Holdings, the company that currently has the rights to ColecoVision games and is using them to produce a ColecoVision Flashback console (which I will write a lot about, guys, seriously; send me one), has plans to follow up that release with new versions of the excellent Coleco Mini Arcade games.

In case you weren’t alive when these came out – and I’ve seen our demographics – these were little LCD versions of popular arcade games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Galaxian, with bright colored screens and loud bleepy noises, presented on tiny replicas of the arcade machines. I’ve had Pac-Man and Galaxian since I was little, and I love them! Images via Handheld Museum, news via @gamespite.

A hundred Sega icons for your Twitter ⊟

In honor of reaching 100,000 followers on Twitter, Sega posted a really cool set of Twitter avatars representing the company’s whole history – from vintage HQ to SG-1000 to Sonic to the Tera Drive to Yakuza.

I, of course, downloaded the whole set to keep forever. Then, after changing my Twitter avatar to the vaguely repulsive Love & Berry, I zipped up the whole set so nobody else would have to click through all 100 to get them. You can get the file here on our Patreon page (where you can also sign up for Club Tiny if you happen to feel like supporting us!)

Enjoy your new online identity as that Sega urinal game!

Weirdest infinite Mario 1UP trick ever ⊟

Performed in level 5-2 of Super Mario Bros. 2 (Lost Levels). It involves passing through a couple of walls and disappearing into a pipe somehow? I’d love to try to replicate this.

Oh, do you want more weird 1UP videos in Super Mario Bros. 2? Because Games Haya has a playlist of nothing but that. Via Famicom no Neta.

Naka had a reputation for being a difficult interview when he was still at Sega, but I had never seen him as aloof during my time with him—he had always been eager and willing to answer my questions.

He was a creative type. He loved programming, relishing the ability to create entire worlds and realities from scratch through the simple act of entering words and commands into a computer. I respected him greatly, and I think he could see that I understood his underlying passion.

I was escorted by a spokesperson to Yuji Naka’s office several floors up. When we walked in, he smiled.

'Ah, it’s you.'

Y’all have to read this piece in the Atlantic: “A Quest for the Secret Origins of Lost Video-Game Levels" by Heidi Kemps. It’s about meeting Yuji Naka (repeatedly), about software piracy, and about her own history of fandom, and it’s the best thing I’ve read in ages.

I don’t want to say too much more about the contents of the story. Just do me a personal favor and go read it.

SNES and Super Famicom GBAs ⊟

Rose Colored Gaming is putting these beautiful backlit handhelds together, for release early this month. Our TinyCast pals Christian and Fran speak very highly of their custom GBA!

I definitely wouldn’t mind having one of these to play the Super Mario Advance games on! Via Kotaku.

Here’s Gackt playing Mega Man 2 ⊟

It’s like Game Center CX, if Shinya Arino was also a pop star and possible vampire. And sat in full view of his sports car rather than a tiny featureless office. Via Inside-Games.
