metroid speed run

August 31, 2010

--For me it's less about the speed and ways they've found of "breaking" the video game Metroid to get the best possible time than the view of the game that shows more than the room Samus is currently in... it's like those old Nintendo Player's Guide maps come to life... - on old color photos. It is sometimes a bit hard to remember that the world wasn't b+w from 1800-1950 or so, and that old Roman statues were originally in garish colors, not the "classy" monochrome stone colors we now see them in.

I'm always weirded out how Photoshop et al crop out transparent pixels when you try and copy and paste- does that feel 'right' to designers?
