Its days like today when i know that i am damn old with my 33 years and celebrate 20th Anniversaries of Video Games i loved when i was 14.

As a damn big fan of the Metroid series and especially Super Metroid which i played through more times than any other single-player game and so i had to get something together when i read about its release date just a few weeks ago. Was very busy with our Link's Friendlist Art Collaboration at the time but something just had to be done about S.Metroid and now, today i am proudly presenting a relative small art tribute with the focus on the Bosses like Ridley, Mother Brain and also the not so known ones like Crocomire and even the Spore Spawn Mini-Boss.

You can see this art tribute here: http://www.game-art-hq.com/68870/the-game-art-hq-community-art-tribute-to-super-metroid-we-celebrate-its-20th-anniversary/

It is not as big as our Legend of Zelda Art Collaborations but if you are a fan of the game you will most likely love the Illustrations done by fans who also decribed their views about the game and its bosses there.

Thanks a ton at Nintendo and Gunpei Yokoi (R.I.P) for developing this Masterpiece.

Going to play it again later.

and founded his own small game studio. He left Konami on last Saturday and now he hopes that he can develope game(s) that his fans want.

Personally i guess he was everything but satisfied with the course Konami was going with the Castlevania series.

This guy made Castlevania SOTN which is seen as the best Castlevania ever by many of us and it looks like he was not able to work on new games he wanted to make.

He said: "I've decided to break out on my own to have the freedom to make the kind of games I really want to make -- the same kind I think fans of my past games want as well,"

"Leaving Konami was a big decision, and not one I took lightly – I’ve spent my entire career there, made many friends, and had a lot of great opportunities – but I hope all the gamers and fans who have supported me in the past will join me in being excited about what comes next. Wish me luck!”"

Igarashi is presentating a "exploration of his experiences and methodology in creating some of the most popular and influential games in the genre over the last 15 years." at the Game Developers Conference in this week.

Source for all this was http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/17/castlevania-producer-koji-igarashi-leaves-konami

Looking forward what this guy has to say.

He worked on almost all of the Castlevania Games since SOTN till Harmony of Despair and also worked on a few of the oldschool shoot'em ups by Konami.

Its quite a trend that people are leaving big publishers these days to form own small studios, eh?

what informations do you hope to find directly on google or on the first websites?

The role of the character? In which games he was?  Images of the character?

Profile informations given by the game makers like "Sagat is from Thailand, loves fried chicken, hates fish and is using Muay Thai as his fighting style"?

The fictional age of a character or when he first appeared in a video game?

Other development informations like how a character was developed, influcened by other characters, knowing who created the character?

Relations to other game characters, his friends and enemies?

I ask all that becausei am working on a video game character db and hoped some of you could help me on what types of informations should be there.

When i myself google a character i see the wiki's related to a game but those are often suuper long and have no summaries with all important details of a video game character in a short form which makes it sometimes more cmplicated to find a information than needed, with my own project i try to get as many details into the shortest form possible.

Let's imagine this is a website and a blog about video games and game related topics. There are Interviews there, Reviews, Videos, Fan Art and Cosplay Articles sometimes and a ton of news!

But now comes the best...its all about one game! Titanfall, the new and awesome Electronic Arts Multiplayer Shooter for the XB360, XB One and the PC!

Every single map could be reviewed, an ex- OC Remix Musican would be the perfect choice to review every single music track of the game and the rest of the staff could write around 5-10 articles about it per day instead of just 2-5 on dtoid.

This awesome website could get the name Titanfalldoid

Seriously guys..if about every 6th or 7th Dtoid article is about Titanfall since weeks, and the game got over 140 articles and 34 galleries already on Destructoid something feels fucking wrong.

Especially if seen in comparison to around 20 articles for the 10/10 game Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and another 20 for a big game like inFamous 2nd Son.
This last sentence is an edit to add Titanfall to the last paragraph.Order is restored now.

Everyone just loves the GOOMBA or?

I surely do and started the offical and awesome DRAW A GOOMBA Art Event of the Millenium!

If you have even the slightest sense of creativity and talent to draw something, and you like the scary and super mighty GOOMBAS from the Super Mario Bros. Universe and you are already on deviantART..than my litte contest there might be interest for you.

This is not about prizes and not about being the better artist, there are some small prizes but these will be chosen by a software, the level of the submission does not matter.

You can submit a Goomba to http://game-art-hq.deviantart.com/ , there is a gallery folder for this little art event.

There are some mighty epic submissions already, have a look at some of them!
