Here’s a video of me playing a really cool new arcade game: Neon FM. Think Pop’n’Music but with less buttons, and the buttons are more like drum pads than anything.

The game is so new that my local arcade is one of two places to have it currently, the other is in Maryland somewhere. However, the machine has made appearances at MAGfest and Katsucon.

The song selection in particular is amazing, with lots of stuff by Monstercat artists and other EDM stuff found on bandcamp and the like.

There’s no way to fail out of a song, but rather if you do poorly enough, the game will eliminate a chunk of upcoming notes for you. You get a break to recompose yourself, but you also lose the chance to get points off of those notes. If you do badly enough, the game will auto-bump you down to the next lowest difficulty for that song.

They’re still in beta, but they’ll be rolling out more machines soon, and a mobile app that connects to the game. I’m seriously excited to see where this game goes; I love it.

The song is “Energy Drink” by Virtual Riot.

NEW CARTOON!
"Can You Name Every Town in Pokemon?"

Feel free to play along at home!
I’ll be putting out more animations at a regular rate; I think I finally found a good balance between this stuff and my full-time job.

If you haven’t seen JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (the anime), here’s at least one reason why you should: the openings are INCREDIBLE.

I played a crapload of In the Groove (think DDR but WAY harder) today so I’m too tired to do anything, but here’s this at least.

So I did this Compixellated Challenge in which you take a modern game’s title screen and make it look like an NES title screen. Thankfully, it didn’t have to be an EXACT recreation, so I went with the classic “logo and black screen” NES logo.
I was contemplating adding a building with Wonder Red standing on top of it, a la Mega Man 2, but I thought it was hack so I decided against it.
It was really fun recreating the logo in 8-bit, and it was also really fun working with the NES color palette. Here’s the original below:
