You may recall the anime-inspired TIE Fighter short film that Otaking77077, AKA Paul Johnson, posted after four long years of work.

Hit the jump for more.
Fans of Irem's classic R-Type series of horizontal shooters might want to keep their eyes out for an upcoming PlayStation 3 release of R-Type Dimensions. The collection, which packs R-Type I and R-Type II together with optional enhancements, comes to PSN in North America on May 20 and Europe on May 21. More after the jump.
