Metroid Hats

Well, this is pretty much all we needed, isn’t it? Any fan of the Half Life series is surely fond of the famous and craved for Headcrab hats. The gist of it all is that those hats work just as the Headcrabs seen in the games: by latching unto one’s head.

Considering how similar this behavior is between Headcrabs and Metroids it was obvious that Metroid hats would eventually be made. But don’t go ahead and think they’re official Nintendo toys. They’re just a simple yet brilliant idea developed by Eyes5, from metroidhat.com.

Has Atari found the Holy Grail?

In a conference at Wedbush Morgan Securities annual Management Access Conference in New York, Nolan Bushnell, Atari’s founder, has declared to have found the most perfect and impenetrable encryption for games and computer programs. Not only this, but he is positive that said encryption will not be crackable, and that piracy will finally be immensely hindered.

[…] What that says is that in the games business we will be able to encrypt with an absolutely verifiable private key in the encryption world – which is uncrackable by people on the internet and by giving away passwords – which will allow for a huge market to develop in some of the areas where piracy has been a real problem.”
