Via Blame Aspartame. It's been a while since my last sampling of random game related imagery from Tumblr, hasn't it?

Sorry about that. Unfortunately, real news takes priority over fan art, wacky, out of context screenshots and even wackier animated gifs. Thankfully it's a bit of a slow news day, so without further adieu...

Via Albotas is a Japanese model standing next to, quite literally, a cute Street Fighter 2 machine...

Perhaps it's not such a shocker to see Peter Berkman, front man of Anamanaguchi, display an affinity for Game Boys...

This would have been far more appropriate if I had posted it during the summer as originally planned; at least it's still nice to see something different from the usual Game Boy dresses you see on Etsy...

I wonder what Mario, Link, Kirby, and Donkey Kong are listening to, as they roll down the highway...

What I'll miss the most about Nintendo Power, which is supposedly about to be put to rest, are wacky letters from readers like this one...

So the main bad guy in Final Fantasy 7 is ordering at McDonalds, right...

Speaking of McDonalds...

And by far the best name for a Pokemon ever..

Contra fan art is fairly uncommon, but often well worth the wait...

I'm actually not familiar with this game Gem Getters that Lamar Abrams is talking about, but it looks neat nonetheless...

Though there is little question: the man might be the biggest Ninja Gaiden fan you'll find anywhere...

tumblr116.jpg

Behold, Earthbound X Jet Set Radio...

tumblr117.jpg

Also, Mega Man 4 X The Nightmare Before Christmas...

tumblr118.jpg

Speaking off, I find this absolutely terrifying for whatever reason...

tumblr119.jpg

This screen-cap from some Bomberman animation isn't much better I'm afraid...

tumblr120.jpg

I'm familiar with the anime from which this game is based upon (Excel Saga), which is well known for its irreverent sense of humor, but this seems a tad bit extreme...

tumblr121.jpg

This one is originally from Canvas, but once again, Tumblr is all about scouring the internet for the best stuff and saving you time...

tumblr122.jpg

Hey, remember when Peach went through that rebellious phase? Yeah, me neither. At least there's this to remind us...

tumblr123.jpg

I'm a fan of the live-action Super Mario Bros movie, but even I have to admit that the Japanese VHS box art makes it look 100 times more interesting that it actually is...

tumblr124.jpg

I agree with this opinion...

tumblr125.jpg

Unlike most screenshots from the FM Towns Marty blog, this one's actually safe for work...

tumblr126.jpg

Poor Rambo, at least he tried...

tumblr127.jpg

GamOvr reminds us how brilliant El Shaddai's marketing campaign was...

tumblr128.jpg

They also picked up this neat behind the scenes pic from Mortal Kombat 3...

For those wondering what a pixelated take on Shadow of the Colossus would be like, and in motion no less...

As excited as I am for the Persona 4 anime, this points towards what could have been (if Gainax was involved)...

Yet another amazing slice of "I really wish this game actually existed" by No Money Down...

And finally, a plush Pikachu and a pair of shiba inus...
