Street art by COMBO Culture Kidnapping

Paris based artist COMBO aka ‘COMBO Culture Kidnapping’ focuses on hijacking spaces with comic book, video game and pop culture art mixed with real life imagery and environments. The results end up on public view on the streets of Paris, in varying scales from side walls to huge building sides.

With the subject matter covering the likes of Star Wars, Batman and Street Fighter all COMBO’s work is recognisably attention grabbing yet also becomes part of the commonplace environment in which it is situated.

Retro Gaming Zavvi ZBOX March 2015 = Retrotastic!

My shoebox arrived this morning and I opened up the seal with eager anticipation. No messing about, you know the score as soon as you lift the lid (see images below). BTW this review will contain [SPOILERS].

Lemmings Door Hanger from GB Eye and either a Pac-Man or Ghost Pixel Brick from Paladone. I’m part way through building the fiddly little Pac-Man but thought I better stop and write this article. Dropped a small piece on the floor, somehow it ended up at right at the back of my desk…. torch, ruler, squinting, fiddling…found a peanut. Boom!

Full game download of Tango Fiesta (worth £9.99) from Steam. Tango Fiesta is a top-down cooperative shooter for 1-4 players. Imagine the events from every single 80’s action film ever made actually happened to one guy – well you & up to 3 friends get to blast, shoot & knife your way through procedurally generated levels as the ultimate one (or 2, 3, or 4) man army!

The box is also very arty, with a retro gaming theme on the inside of the lid, I shall be keeping this for a special occasion. To top things off you also get a magazine and a fat free Flumes. Mmmm free foamy sweet *drools*. Overall, the ZBOX represents great value for money, you would pay way more than the £19.99 asking price to get all this tip top merch delivered to your door. Ordering the next one, I see Thundercats…. hoooooooooo!
