Video Games vs. Real Life

3 Feb

Aled Lewis (Fatheed on Flickr) transported your favorite old school video game characters into the real world in some impressive photo manipulations. I get a special kind of nostalgia whenever I see old school video game characters. Chris Hardwick wore his Doctor Who/Back to the Future shirt on The Late Late Show! Check our his Flickr and website AledLews.com he also has a bunch of other great geek related art.

Gorilla In The Mist

aka: Kong of the Jungle. The reason he was so mixed up was because he was missing home. A construction site is no place for a 500lb ape. Look at how happy he is now.

We Need A Montage

Hyaku Retsu Harite (aka Hundred Hand Slap)

Off To Atlantis. BRB.

Koopa Beach

Schadenfreude Dog

When You See It (snow)

Keeping The Mean Streets Clean

Off The Dirt Track

This is Tower Bridge, not London Bridge – but you knew that. :)

Land Speed Record Attempt

I may revisit this series later in the year, but for the time being this is the 12th and last in my collection ofVideo Games vs. Real Life images. I have a bunch more ideas, but I need to change it up a bit now. Thanks for the support! :)

Base Jumper

Dammit. I gave him an umbrella when he was meant to be a blocker.

Sunday Funnies (10/24)

24 Oct

I’m back everyone from the beautiful Cayman Islands.   Did you miss me?!  Well I sure missed you!  If you were wondering why I didn’t have any posts this week it’s because I was on a little vacation, I twitpiced a few pictures of it.  Well paradise is lost again and it’s back to reality and of course back to my blog!

Enjoy this weeks Sunday Funny, this one I literally LOL’ed. Having the Blue Shell/Spiny Shell in Mario Kart made me feel like God!

Girls this one is for you!

Here’s what Dueling Analogs had to say about this comic,

“I would have referred to them as Spiny Shell Condoms, but that would have given the comic a completely different feel. Literally.

I had this comic finished pretty close to midnight EST, but I wanted to create a mock wrapper for a Blue Shell Condom. Thought it adds a little something more to the experience. Or at the very least a picture of a fake condom wrapper.

Seriously though, the blue shells or spiny shells or whatever kind of shell you want to call them are a mixed bag of tricks. On one side, it’s a cheap way to win and an even cheaper way to lose. It can completely destroy the whole skill aspect of any given race. Then again, it does add a completely random level of uncertainty of how a race will play out even until the very last second. So I guess I have a love hate kind of relationship with the blue spiny shells. Though, it’s still an extremely crappy way to lose.”
