As noted at the tail end of yesterday’s post, there are several new items in the Attract Mode shop this very moment that you should know about if you weren’t aware already. Such as…

Familiar with the Metagame by Local No. 12? It’s the perfect card game for people who love video games. Especially those who also love to argue about them. The GDC hit proved mighty popular in our little corner of the Fangamer booth at both Penny Arcade Expos this year. So we’re delighted to finally offer both the primary set and the expansion deck online.

Next, remember Kyle Fewell‘s totally amazing (and totally viral; it’s still going strong) contribution to Comics Vs. Games? Well, we’re equally proud to finally provide such a highly sought-after piece, and to citizens of the United States (as well as the rest of the world) for the very first time. The time to nab yours is here at last.

Once more, be sure to keep an eye out on the shop; future pieces from our Toronto show will be making appearances in the coming days.

Been a crazy past couple of days. Adam’s super busy, overseeing the LA Game Space Kickstarter, and I myself have been gathering new goods for the shop, since the holiday season is just around the corner (as well putting the final touches on something that I’ve been working on for quite some time now).

There’s so much happening in fact that we’re actually somewhat behind on our heads ups. And even though many of you know already, we’ll just go ahead and make it nice and official: artwork from the Fangamer VERSUS Attract Mode show is now available online at last. Thanks for your patience!

Simply head on over to Fangamer’s dedicated gallery or the arts & prints section of the Attract Mode shop. And be sure to look around; you might find at least a few other pleasant surprises.

In addition to Lamar’s aforementioned mini, another highlight of this past Saturday’s Brooklyn Comics And Graphics Festival was the appearance of John Pham‘s latest contribution to the video game zine space.

SCUZZI is a love letter to the gaming rags that paved the way for us all. It features finely selected highlights of assorted magazines from throughout the 80s, spanning both the US plus parts of Europe, and all lovingly reproduced via risograph.

It was actually my favorite acquisition from the Toronto Comic Arts Festival earlier this year, but I was more than happy to nab another copy this past weekend. Actually, I got more than just one, and which are all being sent directly to the Attract Mode warehouse.

Which means the chance to pick yours up via the shop very soon.
