Press those buttons and Ryu will blow your opponent to bits with Kamehameha’s little brother, the Hadouken.
Hadouken, by Drake Tsui.
Two of the PS2’s most critically acclaimed action/adventure games have finally made their way to the PS3 after confusing delays and rumors that it may not even see the light of day. Amidst all the rumors that the collection might not even come out (and another rumor that it being pushed back to Q4 2012 certainly didn’t help), it finally ended up being released alongside other large titles such as FIFA Soccer ‘12 and X-Men Destiny. I’m also relatively certain that I was one of only a few people who was actually waiting for this date simply to pick up the Collection that helped define large sections of my teenage years, hoping that certain bugs and glitches found in other Collections did not carry over and spoil the experience of two of the greatest games of all time. I’m proud to say that this Collection delivers the perfect experience I was looking for.

Mini Madness - by Andrew Dobson
Artist Note: “Now that the 3DS allows downloads of DSi-ware games, I’ve been playing through a number of gems I missed out on and one of those is ‘Mario Vs Donkey Kong: March of the Minis.’”
“Despite it being a damn good puzzle game, I often find my mind wandering during the cut scenes where Mario sicks his mechanical mini henchmen on Donkey Kong and wondering… ‘why doesn’t he just run over there and beat him up?’
“Of course that sort of logic would make the rest of the game pretty pointless, but even so far as Mario universe logic goes it’s kinda silly that instead of taking care of business himself Mario must use toy versions of himself which are so stupid they’ll happily walk right into danger without strategic guidance every step of the way.”
Matteo Bittani and photographer Kenzie Burchell have a produced a seires of photographs called “Game Arthritis”, described as “a systematic study of video game induced diseases.” Though all the photographs are staged, the works allow us to visually contemplate the effects that digital interfaces may have on our physical body, including WASD Syndrome, Playstation Thumb, and the above Xbox Hypertrophy.
