up up down down left right left right A B Press Start!

Remember when renting a video game for a sleep over weekend with your best friend could be the best thing in the world or if you picked out a dud, could put a real kink in your two days of freedom from school?

The same could be said for getting an Atari or Nintendo game as a birthday or Christmas present. How many kids were super pissed after they played five minutes of E.T. or any of the movie license games on the NES? I remember my brother got a game called Athena for his birthday and thing thing was the biggest piece of shit ever. The games tended to never live up to the awesome box art.....

But when you got your hands on a gem, then life was good! How many hours did we sink into Contra, Ghosts and Goblins (still one of the hardest games ever) or Punch Out?

This Thursday you'll be able to check out some amazing art inspired by games we've loved or hated in our past.

See you all here this Thursday, July 8th from 6 - 11 pm. If there is a piece you're interested in, you better act fast because they are already beginning to sell!
