A history of Electronic Art’s Basketball games from the 1990’s, in logo form.
Initially starting off with Team Vs. Team games when the Lakers and Bulls were super popular, EA then switched to NBA with Showdown in 1994. After that they switched over to the Live name, which continues to this day.
Surprisingly difficult to find the 1998 logo and 1995 logo in good quality, not to mention the real weird logo they went to for a while. Also weird that other versions of the 1997 and 1998 game had completely different logos too.
The Madden NFL logo - from 1991 to 2000.
Much changed through the years - the switch from Megadrive to PSOne being the main item, and of course it becoming a huge money maker for Electronic Arts.
Fun to see the difference in design. The later maddens are a lot more flashy, while the earlier games had a more “grass roots” system to it. Later the EA sport logos began to meld into one across all sports franchises, which still continues today.
Also weird that it’s apparently impossible to find a great scan of Madden 96 or 98 out there. They’re all terrible to try and get an image off of, so both of those are poorer than the others.
The giant Bomb Panel was nuts.
Port Begging for: Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings
Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Square Enix
Original Platform: Nintendo DS
Port it to: iPad, Consoles
So in the past couple of days an emulator for the Nintendo DS got hacked around a bit.to make the games run in “HD” - being that it will run any 3D polygonal content at a higher res.
And there are a ton of games that looked awesome like this, but one I found looked amazing was Final Fantasy XII - Revenant Wings - effing beautiful!
The game was an oddity at the time, and didn’t have the best gameplay for such a small screen as the DS, but I could easily see this as a game that would work on an iPad, on PC, or even with some basic changes and on consoles.
What is “Tomodachi Life”? It’s weeeeeird is what it is.
okay so i just had a transcendent experience while using photoshop CS6
i started out with this selfie i had taken, which looked decent compared to the others i took that day so i wanted to see if i could straighten it out
so i straighten it out in photoshop but it was too…
What I’ve been dealing with with thevideogameartarchive.
The Japanese cover artwork for the original Phantasy Star. This art was extracted from the PS2 collection! Awesome work.
Follow thevideogameartarchive on Tumblr for awesome video game artwork old and new!
Meet the new Ninja Turtles. Uhh, hmm.
Seeing blazehedgehog chatting about the new version of Sonic Robo Blast 2 is pretty awesome. It’s been a while since I’ve had a real look at the game and it’s got so many weird things in it - like an entire remake of the original Klick & Play SRB1 in there.
It’s crazy how influential the game was, and seems like it still is!
