What is Polybius?

This video hopes to explain one of the most notorious modern video game myths: the Polybius arcade machine. Is it true that an arcade machine deployed by the government caused psychoactive and addictive behaviors upon those who played it? Probably not. However it’s fascinating to think about if such a thing did ever exist. It’s about an hour long, very well produced and super comprehensive. Kick back, relax and watch as the myth, the legend unfolds in meticulous detail.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles intro re-created in Mario Paint

I enjoyed this little animation that took months of work by Mike Matei. The music is not the original song (for obvious reasons) but it’s still a hell of a job altogether! A video of him drawing a single frame is also available in the description of the video, which takes over 45 minutes!

Ralph 4 gameplay added!

A new homebrew game was released out into the wild not too long ago… It’s programmed for the NES and is available for download as a rom. The basic premise:

Ralph 4 is a NES game by pubby, with music by MovieMovies1. The game is explained rather easy. Collect diamonds and avoid the fluffy cute bears. Few bears wont move at all, others do.

It’s fun so far, definitely has its difficult segments not even ten minutes in! As you can tell, I had some difficulty with it, but I hope to get past the level I left off of soon.

In the meant time, enjoy!
