Fan films are ten-a-penny these days, but that doesn't mean they're all good. Something pretty awesome has been brewing in Russia, however. It's only a trailer, but hopefully it's a precursor to a larger project.
Update: Sadly the subtitled vid has been removed.
The Oddworld series was known for two things: being one of the earliest Playstation exclusives and for being really goddamn difficult!...Unless you're Terry Garrett, that is. Although his sight has completely gone, 23 year old Garrett absolutely kicks bottom in this video, using sound as his only guide. We doff our caps to you Mr. Garrett, this is exceptional stuff!
We used to have to remind a friend of ours (let's call him Kirk) that the violence was to be kept onscreen. Inevitably he'd have pulled away from the pack in Mario Kart only to have a blue shell wreck his dreams of gold and glory whereupon he'd start using the controller as a nunchuk and threatening to insert it in people.
Video games really do bring people together...
Right so I realise that this isn't strictly gaming related, but it's done using the husk of a PC fitted with a bunch of floppy drives and driven by little 20-pin microcontrollers. The operative (and relevant) word there is PC...so we'll let it slide.
Plus it's awesome.
Did Valentine's Day not quite go as planned? Did that romantic gift you had planned completely fail to capture the heart of your loved one? Chances are you forgot to heed the Aperture Science guide to all things VD gift-related.
Mates. Buds. Compadres. Amigos.
Videogames have taken a stab at true love, but when it comes right down to it, there's no deeper connection than two best mates who look out for each other through thick and thin. Allow me, therefore, to take you through ten of the greatest Bromance stories ever told.
Conventional logic dictates that this pair should be the deadliest of enemies, but nothing could be further from the truth. Every time Mario needs some more disposable income or some time away from the missus, Bowser's always happy to hook him up with a princess kidnapping and go through the motions. In an awesome display of taking one for the team, Mario was also willing to go deep inside the digestive tract of his erstwhile foe to save the world... which is quite frankly further than even the tightest of bros are willing to go. Even on a stag night.
When Commander Shepard is forced to go off the books and recruit a crack team of surly ne'er-do-wells to save the universe, there's one Turian that he knows that he can rely on time and time again. Garrus always has his back. Whether he's doling out sage advice or devastating sniper cover fire, this is one partnership that survived two games and will hopefully make it into the third.
This is a classic example of a budding bromance that was cruelly cut short. It took a .44 magnum round and several cans of petrol to drag these two apart, even after the steadfast Ghost heroically dragged his comrade in arms out of a deadly firefight and was pivotal in securing each and every objective that Task Force 141 threw at them.
A tragic end to a solid bromance that was forged- and severed- by fire.Click here to keep reading, bro!
