I see what you did there: Unmasked Icons

This is a series of photos on Facebook by Design Overall titled UNMASKED ICONS with illustrations by Alex Solis. I once unmasked someone and exposed them to the world….well, I actually just ripped the sunglasses off a guy who had extreme sensitivity to light. He was pretty mad at me but in my defense, I thought he was a super-villain. I mean, he was covering his face and had this inhaler so he clearly was looking to poison the city with some kind of toxic gas. He claimed it was for his asthma, but I wasn’t buying it. Props to my buddy Jon for pointing these pictures out to me. Enjoy! Advertisements

Sonic the Hedgehog is GREATER Than Mario

Shown above is a graphic from the single greatest game ever made, for any console, of all time, ever. PERIOD. Sonic 2 was a benchmark in gaming. I would spend hours – literally my whole days – with my friend Dave trying to beat the game. Trying to get the most emeralds and rings. Trying different ways to beat the special stages. Trying to attain as many extra lives as possible. And we did. We were awesome. I do not believe I have ever spent more time on one specific activity in my entire life. Except maybe masturbating. I know that overall Nintendo and its main protagonist Super Mario is regarded as a better system – and is far more popular considering the company still produces new consoles and games today – but I take issue with this. To me, Nintendo and Mario could not hold a piece of shit to Sonic and Sega Genesis. I tried my hand at the Mario series’ and other Nintendo games, but nothing gave me more pleasure than good …
