I can't read this...(stupid work filters block most video gaming web sites):

What does it say about VGMaps?

All I can tell is, it starts with:
"I've made no secret of my love for VGMaps and their noble mission to render video game worlds in atlas-like detail. But I fear our friends at VGMaps have..."

Have what?  I can't see!  THE SUSPENSE!  0_0

Super Potato has a long-standing tradition of adorning the walls of its building's public spaces with retro-themed artwork, usually of a Famicom-oriented nature. Their latest work pretty much gilds the lily, though: A massive printed mural of an entire Kid Icarus fortress stage.

Is this awesome? Yes. Yes, it is.

I'd never really considered creating a poster like this, even after holding on to Mark MacDonald's rad Super Metroid map poster for a year. But it's kind of an amazing idea to render a virtual space in the real world. Now I want to plaster my apartment walls with these.

I'm sure my fiancée won't mind.

Games I have mapped--Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES), Mario Party 3 (N64), Super Mario Bros Deluxe (GBC), New Super Mario Bros. (DS), Mario Kart DS (DS)

Yeah, I read about that yesterday. On the same subject, I've been meaning to get my Aria of Sorrow map printed out and laminated, but I know nothing about printing companies, local or otherwise. Hopefully, if I can manage to get it done with enough precision that individual pixels are still preserved somewhat, it might warrant some more attention from 1UP's Retro Gaming Blog...

Current project that I really should try to finish:
-Drill Dozer (GBA)
-Sonic 3D Blast (Genesis)
-Naya's Quest (PC)
-Lilly Looking Through (PC)

Pending project:
-A ton of stuff that will never be finished
