Picture of the Week- Pinup Video Game Girls and Interview with Artist Marques Cannon

Kratos- God of War

I featured Marques Cannons Pin-Up Video Game Girls back in August 2010 before I started Picture of the Week and I knew that one day I’d have to bring them back and feature his Video Girls Series again because I loved them so much! Marques is also the first artist I interviewed for PotW and I hope to interview more of the artists I feature whenever possible. Kratos is definitely my favorite reinterpretation!  Continue reading →

God of War Indie Movie Trailer

Here’s a funny faux trailer for God of War if it was an Indie movie.  If you love God of War like I do, and love (or even hate) Indie movies you’ll enjoy this trailer.  Also check out their Dig Dug and Maniac Mansion parody trailers and Inglorious Plumbers.

Via Gamer Vision:

Gamervision’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed Inglourious Plummers and the cult hit Maniac Mansion is a unique romantic black comedy in the proud tradition of Rushmore and Gigantic.  Josh Henderson stars as Kratos, an orphan teen who just transfered to Spartan Academy.  There he meets Athena (Zane Bauer), an alluring rebel with parental issues herself.  The two hit it off almost immediately, and find they share much more in common than they originally thought when Kratos is introduced to Athena’s father Zeus (Michael Sadorf), the same father who abandoned Kratos at an early age.  Determined to reconnect with his son after more than a decade of absence, Zeus forbids Kratos from seeing Athena, yet the star-crossed lovers find themselves inexplicably attracted to one another, despite the newfound revelation of their relation.

Video Game Minimalism: Less is More

Less is more in this case.  My super amazing brother showed me some of these minimalist video game posters a while ago (pre-blog).  And since sharing is caring I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I think they are very cute and clever!  If I still lived in a dorm I’d have some of these posters all over the walls… well at least my side of the room.  You can buy some video game minimalist shirts here and buy some  posters on here and through the artists links.

Hardcore gamers will be able to recognize all of these posters.  BUT I provided the cheat code just in case.

The posters are made from: Justin Russo, Infinite Continues, Chris and Ashley Browning.

Fanboys don’t worry the next post I will do is on superhero minimalist posters.
