8-BIT IS THE NEW 4K
In the olden days of gaming, when quarters were a hot commodity and color graphics were the newest innovation, one name stood out as king: Atari. The games were visually simple, but still retain their hold as some of the most challenging and fun games ever created.
Celebrate the days when game designers had only 128 bytes of RAM and no screen buffer to work with. This simple Atari Black Katakana Backpack will let you tote around your latest console, should you so desire, in old-school style. It has a laptop/tablet pocket to protect the goods, too. But no woodgrain. Sorry.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
