Samus enjoys some sausage (link roundup)

A magazine cover for IG features chibi versions of famous video game heroines including Samus, Aeris, Princess Peach, Faith from Mirror's Edge, and Lara Croft cooking. In this gallery, you can find high-res versions of each character.

And a few more links:

1. Speaking of chibi video game characters, here's a nice roundup of Scribblenauts-inspired drawings.

2. A few months back, the common story was that China was outfoxing America and Europe, signing contracts locking up natural resources throughout the third world. Now the common trend seems to be articles alleging that the smarter companies are gladly letting the Chinese ensnare themselves in lackluster deals.

3. Concept art for a next-gen Russian fighter.

4. For my LA readers - - the great LA Cupcake Map. Via.
