I’m pretty sure this was the late night soundtrack for much of late high school.

I’m getting older, so I thought I’d reminisce with videos that meant a lot to me when I was in my late teens. We’ll start with one of my favorite British New Wave bands.

I was sufficiently pleased to watch the Yamato 2199 remake; but I’m not too sure if Harlock can survive the jump from Leiji Matsumoto’s gorgeous animation to the new (and, admittedly equally gorgeous, but somehow not as personable) CGI. Doesn’t mean I’m not going to watch it, though.

I guess my trip out to Boston to visit Andrew (and see Dave and Andy) and the subsequent PAX East awesomeness has rekindled a fierce joy in playing retro (or retro-ish) games, what with the “last ever Retronauts” panel (and it’s subsequent Kickstarter), and the Wayforward-developed Ducktales HD remaster.

It probably helps too that 4chan has an extremely polite (by 4chan standards) new subforum — retro video games, and that’s where I found this gem:

It’s a 16-bit remake of the original Legend of Zelda, for BS Satellaview. You can read all about it here.

For comparison’s sake, check out the starting gameplay footage of the original game, in case you’ve forgotten how it looks:

I have no idea how much this costs, but the sheer amount of customization and articulation has me intrigued. Shame about the color; like it’s trying too hard to evoke race-car mentality. Also, it doesn’t look terribly breathable, so long hours in this might be too sweaty for comfort. Still, it looks damn cool.
