Video Games vs. Real Life

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.

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.

8bit ‘F*ck You Parody’

Your NES doesn’t like you cheating on it with Sega, and it made a song to let you know. This parody of Cee-lo’s song “F*ck you” was made by Inverse Phase, check out the rest of his Chip Tunes on his website.

“So what’s going on here? Well, the year is 1990. You’ve finally gotten a Genesis (or a Mega Drive, I suppose) from the toy store and your Nintendo has begun to collect a fair bit of dust. If it could talk (or sing) to you, what would it be saying right now?”

Tattoo Tuesday- Pixelated and 8-bit Tattoos

Zombie Week- House of the Dead: Overkill

The House of the Dead: Overkill (first-person rail shooter) published by Sega and made for the Wii.  I know I know it isn’t new, it came out the beginning of 2009, but I didn’t have a blog then plus it’s zombie week so anything undead goes.  I like this game it because it presents itself like a over-the-top Grindhouse flick and because it has a Guinness World Record for the most profane video game in history (189 F-bombs to be exact).  I think if they ever made this a movie Samuel L. Jackson just has to play the character Detective Isaac Washington.

Game Informer ranked the dirty mouth cop Isaac Washington among the “Top 10 Heroes of 2009,” saying this about him:

“Foul-mouthed, uncompromising, hard-drinking, and unceasingly funny, Isaac Washington keeps everything grounded when the world is going crazy all around him. With tongue set firmly in cheek, Washington is a stereotypical career cop who can’t finish a sentence without a few expletives thrown in for color. He keeps the action going, and never fails to say what the player is thinking when the zombie outbreak gets out of hand.”

Have you played HD: Overkill? What did you think?

Check out its Grindhouse style trailer below.
