Star Fox

Fantastic Mr. Star Fox

Screen shot 2011-03-09 at 10.09.20 PM

Did you ever play the original Nintendo videogame Star Fox? Or what about the incredible Nintendo 64 version and the terrible Gamecube sequel?

That was one of my favorite videogames for the N64, and some of the lines from that game I still quote: “Andross has ordered us to take you down,” and “I’m afraid I can’t let you do that, Star Fox.”

As if to make the videogame even cooler, CollegeHumor created a parody of the incredible Wes Anderson stop-motion film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, called The Fantastic Mr. Star Fox.

The animation is extremely well-done for this parody, and the imitation voices are top-notch. If you’re a fan of Star Fox, you should definitely give the video below a watch!

I admit, I kind of want to see this movie now. Make it happen internet!

8-bit-interviews

It seems that when the economy tanked, it wasn’t just our world that was affected, but the video game one as well.

As if the job market wasn’t tough enough as it is, now characters from video games are looking for jobs too!

What would happen if you applied for a lumber job and Link from The Legend of Zelda series was your main competition? Or demolition and you were up against ‘Splosion Man?

The folks at Rooster Teeth decided to showcase some snippets of these types of interviews, entitled “8-Bit Interviews.” Some of them are pretty funny, so check out the video below the jump.

ToadTSA

Our friends at Dorkly nabbed (OK, created) a series of images of well known video game characters encountering the new TSA security checks. It seems that not even video game characters are safe from the TSA pat-downs.

From characters such as the loud Toadstool to the lovable Kirby, to White Bomber (Bomberman) to Master Chief, we got a few images that I’m sure most of you will enjoy.

So click after the jump to check out rest of the images while I sit here and imagine the type of rampage Kratos will cause after having his “Gods of War” groped.

STAR FOX DOWN!

star-fox-corgi1Just playing. That’s just the cutest and best dressed welsh corgi I’ve ever freaking seen. What dog sleeps like that? And wears epic video game garb, throwing the users of the internet into a whirlwind of mixed emotions? It’s like watching the goddamn Notebook. I’ve cried, laughed, been horrified and masturbated over the duration of seeing this picture, and I’ve only been writing this article for like 5 minutes. Oh well.. After you get over the initial shock of how accurately this tiny dog portrays Fox McCloud, you have to ask yourself one question. “Is it wrong to dress innocent animals up like the things we love in life?” The answer is Hell No. There should be no moral dilemma to dressing my cat up as Lion-O. AND THERE ISN’T, believe me. Morals are for losers, like the Amish. And I shouldn’t get any flak for that comment, because I know that none of you bastards are amish, because they don’t even use electricity. But, I’m not sure if that’s correct, so don’t hold me to it. I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing Falco, Peppy, Star Wolf, but not Slippy.. HOLY SHIT she was annoying, right? Well enjoy!
