Two hundred video game characters made into Mega Man sprites

Hey, here's that new desktop background you desperately wanted, even if you didn't know it yet. It's a gargantuan spread featuring over 200 characters from video game franchises, new and old, redrawn in the style of Mega Man. The image comes from pixel artist Chris Bringhurst, who released a compilation half this size last month. If he wanted to keep doubling it every few weeks or so, we would not hold it against him.

Click here to see the full version of the image -- but be prepared to bid farewell to a considerable portion of your day.

[Thanks, David]
