PSA – Your Shiny Pokémon Await

Shiny Pokemon
A friendly reminder came our way that Pokémon fans can get a jump on Nintendo’s upcoming Black & White versions via a GameStop offer in the US and Canada starting today, as well as get their hands on some shiny Pokémon.

If you’re in possession of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver versions, there’s a trio of Shiny Pokémon up for grabs by visiting your nearest GameStop with the game and your DS – namely Raikou, Entei, and Suicune – which apparently can later be transferred to Pokémon Black and/or White in order to unlock yet another Pokémon in either of those two games that isn’t available through regular gameplay – Pokémon Zoroark.

The offer starts today and runs through to February 6, 2011 – breaking down as follows;

Shiny Raikou – January 3rd – January 9th, 2011
Shiny Entei – January 17th – January 23rd, 2011
Shiny Suicune – January 31st – February 6th, 2011

White, Green, Blue and Dead All Over

For those of us who have made the case for violence as art, a staggering lack of evidence has been our biggest downfall. Dismemberment, decapitation, gallons upon gallons of blood; it all rings the wrong bell for people like Roger Ebert and the Red Cross.

But then along comes White, an avant-garde take on painting a portrait in the style of a Jackson Pollock or an angry art major. From first-year students of the Graduate School of Games and Interactive Medias in France, White allows the player to paint a portrait using various weapons to murder anthropomorphic paint balls who giggle and prance along a barren white canvas.

Take for instance my own painting, after the break.
