Link Merges On A Wall In Our World

By Spencer . December 8, 2013 . 3:31pm


Link’s new ability in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds turns him into a 2D drawing on a wall. World-8, an independent video game store in Los Angeles, painted this scene outside their store.




What’s that by the door?



Yeah, those are Xboxes used as doorstops.

    Um, okay?

  • Invisbin

    Surprised they weren’t stolen…

    • KoRLumen

      I can’t think of anyone who would ever even want an XBOX nowadays. :

      • Wait what

        Funny what time does. In 15 years we will be seeing PS4s used as doorstops.

        • KoRLumen

          I wonder if we’ll even need doorstops in 15 years o:

        • Happy Gamer

          In 25 years, hipster kids will rant about how games “nowadays” are not like the old school, good old days of ps4

          • Servant BerserCAR

            And they will rant about those while playing inside a Virtual Reality-MMORPG titled Spear Art Online. :

          • Wait what

            I’d rather have The World.

          • Servant BerserCAR

            Aye, that’s cool too. Just be careful with data drainers. lol

          • James Todd

          • Pyrotek85


            Hey I had some old games I had missed!

          • KoRLumen

            Just goes to show there are good games on every platform c:

          • Pyrotek85

            Yeah I’m not a platform loyalist, the games themselves are what matter IMO.

          • KoRLumen

            If only more people shared that philosophy :c

      • Mir Teiwaz

        I have one so I can play some of the XBOX exclusive games that I wanted to play, like Mechassault 1 and 2.

        The first Xbox is a great console for emulation and LAN stuff.
        The Xbox One is a pretty cool blender with Killer Instinct.

    • Scipio

      Microsoft consoles are too huge to steal.

      • Lelouch Vi Britannia

        I couldn’t help but look at that picture and LMAO.

    • transferstudentx

      not for long iam planning to vist the shop soon

  • idrawrobots

    That place looks cozy.

    • KoRLumen

      Your display pic looks cozy.

  • Anthony L.

    My local store has empty console shells from every generation hanging from the ceiling like Christmas ornaments.

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Lets see some pictures.

    • InfectedAI

      I second the pictures request.

    • PreyMantis

      Right. Pic or it didn’t happen.

    • Cazar

      All these awesome sounding independent stores are making me jealous. All we get around here anymore is gamestop… and more gamestop.

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    That is truly ‘lol’.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I think those Xbox(es) don’t have anything inside.

    • J_Joestar

      Pretty sure they wouldn’t keep the doors open as empty shells, even if they removed the actual hardware inside they would have to put something to give them the weight to keep the doors open.

      • KoRLumen

        A bag of sand? *shrug*

  • Scipio

    Holy crap, someone took a picture. I drove pass there just a few weeks ago and it’s still there. Nice.

  • gosh darn it haha!

  • Rogerrmark

    Maybe they are empty

    • School Idol Addict

      I don’t think so.
      If they were empty they probably wouldn’t weight enough to stop the door.

      I think they are probably non working Xbox or they are stuffed with something to make them weight more.

      • Pyrotek85

        They’re pretty heavy to begin with lol, probably just broken units.

        I was surprised when mine arrived recently, forgot how huge it was.

  • Servant BerserCAR

    That last picture… I dunno, man, even though I’m not an Xbox owner, I feel sad with that picture. It just feels… wrong (._.)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Looks more lively then gamestop

  • hazelnut1112

    Been there a couple of times. That store is pretty great. Even their business cards are awesome and well designed.

  • fairysun

    That painting would be perfect if there is a maiamais stuck on the wall nearby.
