Pop Chart Labs – The Evolution of Video Game Controllers Print

Brooklyn’s Pop Chart Lab is back with a brand new print and this time they set their well honed sights on “The Evolution of the Video Game Controller”. Like most of PCL’s designs, they chart and document a varied and crowded topic, in an extremely detailed and organized way. Be sure to also check out their other great prints, especially “A Visual Compendium of Notable Haircuts…” and my personal favorite, “The Splendiferous Array of Culinary Tools.”

Limbo – video game

I don’t usually get excited about video games, don’t get me wrong I have a Wii and play pretty regularly, but my gaming pursuits are more of the side-scrolling Mario kind and less of the all-immersion-state-of-the-art types. Which is why Limbo, a new game available on X-Box Live Arcade is so fascinating.

The palette is so simple, yet the game looks so rich and fully rendered. Minimal shapes and simple black and white silhouettes instill far more fear and terror than any Killzone or similar massacre styled video game could ever hope to achieve.

I hope this game moves to other platforms soon (Wii…please!), I am in love with Limbo.
