Never give up. Trust your instincts.

Star Fox 2
I got some mail today. A small package that was shipped from the other side of this planet. It contained a superb english version of the unreleased game, Star Fox 2, for the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System).

Ive only tried the game a little so far, but it feels like a really good game. Too bad Nintendo never officially released it. Its a nice sequel to the excellent Star Fox (or Star Wing as we call it here in Europe) -saga.

Im glad though, that this version of the game exist, even though its not an official release. I got the goosebumps when inserting that Star Fox 2 cartridge into the SNES console, and powering it up. lol Nostalgia, and yet, something New, at the same time.

If you get hold of this game, try it out. (And if you dont want to bother with actually finding a real snes cartridge version of the game, the game is available for any snes emulator)

I shot some video footage of the game. Have a look if you like 😉

The Ghosts of World War II’s Past

August 3, 2010

Take a look at this.

Taking old World War II photos, Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov carefully photoshops them over more recent shots to make the past come alive. Not only do we get to experience places like Berlin, Prague, and Vienna in ways we could have never imagined, more importantly, we are able to appreciate our shared history in a whole new and unbelievably meaningful way.
