All Points Bulletin: Zorg of VersaillesMay 27, 2012
If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on an APB drop us a line via email or Twitter.
- Oscar’s Pachinko Revolution
Apparently, unbeknownst to me there are multiple Rose of Versailles panchiko machines. These are images from the latest one. The only thing I’d be worried about is what is the ending video when you win? Rose of Versailles, not the happiest ending in the land.
- Bad Machinery in Print
This quirky webcomic is something I recently started reading, but John Allison was a forerunner in webcomics way back when. He releases limited print-runs of story arcs, of which I have the recent Murder She Writes. But now, finally after many years, Bad Machinery are getting official collections from Oni Press.
- Video Game Prints
These Ukiyo-inspired pieces featuring classic Nintendo characters are really nice. I think the Samus one is my favorite.
- Red Riding Redux
This Disney long-lost short recently made its way to the surface again. It isn’t that old, 1997, but it has never been made available on home video despite being nominated for an Oscar. It is a rather unexpected production, it doesn’t feel like Disney all that much. The animation is more stylized and they even use photographs of objects in certain pieces. I can’t say I really liked it, but it was interesting to see.
- Busting the Myths about Zorg Industries
The story of the 13+ years crusade of Adam Savage to recreate as perfect as possible ZF-1 gun from The Fifth Element.
- Please Help Me Understand Doctor Who!
Doctor Who is one of those Byzantine fandoms that is fairly simply to explain the general idea but the details of the lore nigh incomprehensible. This chart goes a long way in helping someone who knows Doctor Who fans at least have some idea of what they are talking about.
- How To Be An Awesome Creative Person
Neil Gaiman is always awesome. But he is even more awesome when he talks about what it takes to succeed as a creative artist.
- This Link is Mostly Here Just Because They Have Gemini Sunrise
Another Project X Zone preview. I want this game. It is just one of those games that never comes over to the states.
- Type-Moon News Round Up
Oscar will always be a man among men, even though she is a woman.
