I probably do hate mountains, though my geologic preferences really aren’t important. What is important is that everyone’s favorite zombie killing biker, Francis from Left 4 Dead, hates mountains just like everything else.

It doesn't really explain Mrs. Pac-Man, but I'm not really sure I'm ready for that explanation.The artist, Travis Pitts, has some other neat designs you can view at his site including a Lando [...]

The League of Extraordinary Pac-Gentlemen

We don't often discuss art per se on this blog, but it seems that a wacky artist named Doktor_A has created something right in our collective wheelhouse. Behold the steam punk version of Pac-Man, "Pac Gentleman".I would sugest that the Nautilus in LXG might have had a whole parlor full of these for Nemo's entertainment, [...]
