Remember having a Game Boy and trying to play it at every available opportunity? Hiding it under your desk or duvet just to get that extra slice of time

"Are We On The Cusp Of Another Video Game Industry Crash?" http://feedly.com/e/XAGazIRQ
When I was a little boy of about 7 or 8, I was introduced to a games console that would change my life forever. I only ever had 6 games for it.

...or, it could lead somewhere else. I'm not going to say definitively either way. But I know for sure it will not lead to pronoun-agreement-land.

A lovely PS4 feature

Since I left my PS4 in standby mode last night, I'm able to log in to the Sony Store from work, "purchase" the free-with-PSPlus Don't Starve, and have it downloaded and waiting for me to play when I get home.

I'm sure other consoles can do this too, but I'm not sure it's as seamless. With my Xbox 360, I could add things to my download queue from the web, but I had to power up my Xbox in person and then wait for the download.

That's a pretty nice feature. Haven't really tried something like that with the XBOX ONE yet since there aren't a whole lot of games.

"As part of his ongoing effort to transform weapons into musical instruments, artist Pedro Reyes (previously) constructed a fully mechanized orchestra. Titled Disarm, the collection of eight new instruments were built through a collaboration with several musicians and Cocolab, a media studio in Mexico City.

"The team acquired a variety of rifles, pistols, and shotguns seized from drug cartels by the Mexican army and used them to build the musical devices that are controlled by computers and can be pre-programmed to play music. In the video above the Creator’s Project recently sat down with Reyes to learn more about how he “transforms negative instincts into creative instincts.” It’s well worth a watch to see the instruments in use."

Hmm, so from this post, it looks like Google Play is releasing some Clash covers: https://plus.google.com/106886664866983861036/posts/MvYwrAJgDPN

Found this pretty decent Kurt Vile cover so far. Are there others out there? (Sadly, searching Google Play All Access for "clash covers" doesn't help at all).

"Mega Man, Made Out Of 97 Rubik's Cubes" http://feedly.com/k/1aCx08g
Anyone can grab some colored Post-It Notes and bust out some impromptu pixel art. It takes real skill to transform 97 mini Rubik's Cubes into a pixel-perfect Mega Man. Impressed? Wait until you see his Pokemon.
