PS Ones

Check out the sweet kicks above. Those are custom Nike Air Force Ones to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the PlayStation 2 in Japan.

The 10th Anniversary version of one of the most collectible Air Force Ones features gradient color bleeds on patent leather(!) uppers and standard AF1 liners. Although less than 50 pairs were created, these babies are not numbered. Sony made 'em to give out to company executives, media people, and other important members of society.  So no, you probably won't be given a pair...but that doesn't mean you can't get your sneaker-pimp hands on 'em!

The first pair of these unique sneaks is on the eBay auction block right now, being sold off for charity. Current bid: US $2,135.00.

GDCThis year's GDC is presenting a unique and sexy Game Design Challenge: Entitled "My First Time," the exercise in creativity and gaming asks three game design greats to come up with a game around the theme of "My First Time." These games are to explore two areas game designers generally avoid: Sex and Autobiography. So no mutant aliens. No shotguns. No exploding barrels...unless the creators have some really weird sex lives!

At the session, each panelist presents a unique solution to this game design enigma, and the GDC audience determines their favorite concept. Given the "My First Time," theme, virginal developers are at a distinct disadvantage, and I've heard there are some out there! Although, presumably, not on this panel... Here's who is participating:

  • Eric Zimmerman (Chief Design Officer, Gamelab)
  • Steve Meretzky (VP of Game Design, YouPlus)
  • Kim Swift (Level Designer, Valve)
  • Sulka Haro (Lead Designer, Sulake)

Date/Time: Wednesday (March 25, 2009)   2:30pm — 3:30pm

Do you agree with the panel's assessment that "It's time for games to tackle heavier subject matter that artists in other media have been wrestling with for centuries," or are you content with post-Apocalypse stories, alien invasions and spell-casting elves? How would you tackle an autobiographical game called "My First Time?"

Artist Shepard Fairey has a bone to pick with The Associated Press. AP has threatened to sue Fairey over royalties earned by his iconic Barack Obama "Hope" image, but Fairey has fired the first legal shot.

Shepard Fairey's ubiquitous image is based on a photo owned by AP, but Fairey feels his artistic interpretation of the photo "creates powerful new meaning and conveys a radically different message" than the original photograph. So Fairey has sued AP, asking a judge to find that his use of of the shot did not violate copyright law.

If you look to your right, you'll see my bold appropriation and re-imagining of the Obama Hope image. I call it "Hope, with an 1800s Guy Mustache I Made in MS Paint." As you can see, it creates a powerful new meaning and adds extra value to Fairey's image. Please give me a lot of money now.

So I have a good friend  that puts on themed burlesque shows here in Los Angeles.  Past shows have included comic book and circus freak themes, next up is Alice in Wonderland. Each that I've seen has been entirely epic and totally awesome.  To answer the question rattling around in your head(s) - its not full nude (they wear pasties) and the show always straddles the perfect line between classy, hot and super cool.

Last week I put a bug in her ear about doing a video game themed show - frankly its something I'd want to see, and figured I could exploit it for this here fancy internet website.

She's all about it, and wanted suggestions as to who'd be the best characters for something like this.  You can probably see where I'm going with this.  I want to know which video game characters you'd want to see in an epic, classy burlesque show.  Leave your suggestions in the comments... I'll pool them all together and we'll go from there.

I will let you all know when this is going down, and if you can't make it to Los Angeles that weekend, you can count on TheFeed to be there, shoot it in glorious high-def and bring you all sorts of photos. We're good like that.

You can find some inspiration in our old Video Game Vixens photo gallery, or pretty much anywhere on the internet.

Ready? GO!

The official Palm blog proudly listed a batch of hit games for its numerous Palm OS mobile phones. The announcement is mildly amusing considering that nobody cares about Palm OS and anyone interested in the company is hot for the Palm Pre.

As many of you know, Brian and Raymond were pretty impressed with the Pre after its unveiling at CES 2009. It might even be as rad as an iPhone, without the annoying "Lookit me! I'm cool because I'm an Apple person!" vibe. The Pre has a touch screen, a slideout keyboard, and WiFi support, as well as running WebOS and making phone calls... which is all well and good, but can it play games?

The answer to that would be "not very well". Despite the Pre's impressive innards, applications for the device are made with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You'll be able to experience web-quality games, but not the 3D titles you'll see on the Apple iPhone or T-Mobile G1.

It's just funny that Palm is tooting its own horn for yesterday's games as it prepares for a dull future in gaming with the Pre.
