Graphics Tablet Fun
Date: 2006 May 4th Thursday [14:22] | Posted By: Joe
Webcomics are great. I frequently read Applegeeks, and Gabe at Penny Arcade wanted to see some footage of Hawk (the Applegeek artist) drawing on his lovely Wacom Cintiq, it's basically a combination of a graphics tablet and a monitor. After watching the videos, I know our more artistic readers are drooling and probably want one! I want one and I can't draw to save my life!
In Real Game

Andreas Wieslander's awesome Thesis on promoting games through their feel rather than graphics. Why is this so awesome? to illustrate he's set up a real life version of a Parappa the Rapper Track!

Many anime fans collect and build model kits, but this guy takes it to the next level, building his own anime mechs from Lego!
We'd love to buy his Fuchikoma model. The mech designs he has are actually better than the official Lego anime inspired Exo-Force.

A site charting the misuse of Chinese characters across the world. What's most worrying is the amount of people who tattoo characters onto their skin without checking.

Date: 2006 February 4th Saturday [13:55] | Posted By: Azure
Silly little game where you play as Godzilla on a faux Tamogotchi, your job is too kill as many of the pooping pets as you can. Though we here at ON ask who'd want to kill something that cute, not you surely?

Some things are both crazy and addictive. Grow Cube is one of them. Basically you click on the object to add to the cube, it will then interact with the other objects already on the cube and grow, if placed in the correct order it will trigger off other events. The object of the game is to get all the items to their maximum level. Really simple yet highly addictive. From the same lunatic that brought you the Original Grow Game and Grow RPG.

Spirited Away Cosplay
Date: 2005 January 18th Tuesday [18:12] | Posted By: Joe
Some Cosplayers just standout from the rest, this cosplayer of Sen looks just like her! It really is a good costume and match for the character. The Haku cosplay also looks pretty convincing! The same cosplayer also makes a very good Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh!

You've always been told it's wrong to play with you food right? Well with this little Flash site you can! It's similar to the classic video game (which in turn is based on a toy franchise) MicroMachines. Drive carefully now! ^_-
Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki
Date: 2004 November 14th Sunday [16:01] | Posted By: Azure
A magical girl webcomic with a difference! Yuuki a magical fanboy (you read it right) is transformed into a magical girl... Full colour, with great humour and an odd (yet amazingly effective) hybrid of Japanese, Norse and Western culture!

Surely every otaku's dream add on (apart from those creepy things from Chobits). You can now bake cookies and watch DVDs without moving. It's like having your own magical girl! Or not...
