Jorge Vargas’s Video Game Mashup Art Is Everything My Childhood Wanted [Art]

Art by Jorge Vargas, behance.net/Jorgechilivargas

I have devoted a pretty significant portion of my life to rescuing Princess Peach of the Mushroom Kingdom, and, as I have noted so many times before, I grew up a Street Fighter partisan, with Sakura being one of my all-time favorite characters. As a result, I am immediately and automatically down for anything that combines those two characters, no questions asked. It's my weak point, like if I was a bad guy from House of the Dead with a glowing red crack in my armor.

But as a result, I am the exact target audience for the art of Jorge Vargas, who is doing exactly what the Internet loves the most. In a series of pretty fantastic art pieces, he's mashing up video game characters like Peach, Sakura, Pikachu, Kirby, and Mega Man's dog Rush. Check 'em out below!

Mikael Aguirre’s Video Game Inspired Frescoes Are Beautiful Recreations Of Our Misspent Youth

Art by Mikaël Aguirre, http://orioto.deviantart.com

I've been thinking a lot about video games lately, and how I'm better at getting around imaginary worlds like Super Mario World or CastleVania: Symphony of the Night than I am with streets in my own hometown. As Tom Scioli put it once, there are these characters and ideas that we spend so much of our life with, but never really think about in those terms.

Or at least, I didn't. Mikaël Aguirre, an artist whose incredible work specializes in frescoes and paintings that recreate those familiar scenarios the way we remember them, more than the way they actually were. Check 'em out below!

‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’: Surprisingly Fun, Astonishingly Stupid

injustice01

This week finally saw the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, the new game from the creators of Mortal Kombat in which DC's most popular characters (and Aquaman) wage a brutal battle for the fate of a dystopian parallel universe. Regular ComicsAlliance readers may already be aware that I've had my issues with the plot of the game, but despite that, Warner Br

‘Lego Marvel Super Heroes’ Will Let You Create Your Own Hero

legomarvel01

I'm a big enough fan of Traveller's Tales' LEGO games that I was planning on picking up Lego Marvel Super Heroes already, but today they added an interesting new feature to the game that sounds like it's going to be a blast to goof around with. In addition to playing as characters like the Avengers and the X-Men, players will be able to create their own superheroes, m

Aside from his native genre of action platformers, he's shown up in fighting games like Marvel vs. Capcom, RPGs like Mega Man Legends, the almost mandatory kart racing spectacular, and even dabbled in sports with

A ‘Regular Show’ Video Game Is Coming Later This Year

regshowgame01

Ask anyone who knows me, and they'll tell you that the biggest complaint I have about modern life is that there simply aren't enough electronic simulations of life as a raccoon. I mean, sure, we've got Sly Cooper, but raccoonery has far too much depth for one franchise to cover alone. Fortunately,

ComicsAlliance Reviews ‘Street Fighter’ (1994), Part Two

sf20

Chris Sims: Welcome back to our review of 1994's universally reviled Street Fighter, everyone! When we last left off, Commander Guile and Kylie Minogue were setting off to Shadaloo in a stealth boat, while Ken and Ryu were buddying up to a bunch of maroon-suited pseudo-vipers. Truly, it is exciting times.
