I don’t really accept donations anymore–I haven’t for the past few years. Though I’ve been too lazy to remove the link, my collection of horror games has reached the point that the things I do not own are obscure or brand new, and either way I can buy them myself. But a few weeks ago I complained on Twitter about the few Xbox games I have that the 360 won’t play (most of which, I should mention, are horror games), and was surprised to receive a couple of offers for free Xboxes. I was in Japan last week, but when I returned there was a big FedEx box with an original Xbox inside, complete with cabling and skull stickers over the X.
The Xbox was very generously donated by CaseyB. While we discussed his Xbox he told me about his brother’s stained glass business, which makes, as Casey says, “non-traditional pieces.” Like Pyramid Head here, for example. And Boba Fett. And the Autobots logo. And I’m told that his next project is a Silent Hill nurse, complete with skimpy lab coat and missing face. I have no idea what it takes to make a stained glass window like this, but it looks really hard. How awesome is it that somebody spends that much time on such neat content?
CaseyB’s brother’s company is B & B Glassworks, out of Columbus, Ohio. Their site has images of all their work to date. It’s pretty cool, you should check it out.
And lastly, thanks very much to CaseyB himself for the generous gift. I rearranged my TV setup last night and managed to get it hooked up to the very last of my open ports, bringing the total number of devices providing input to my television to 10. I’m still trying to close out Catherine (which is a GOTY candidate for me at this point, though incredibly difficult), but after it’s done I may dive into Still Life, Curse: The Eye of Isis, Constantine, or maybe Evil Dead Regeneration, all of which I find myself suddenly able to play.
