Less Big Daddy, More Shirley Crabtree

By Kieron Gillen on August 13th, 2007.

Okay. We’ve had enough corporate evilness puncturing our happy-happy joy-joy over-excitement over the forthcoming Bioshock. Let’s have something to warm our hearts as we prepare ourselves for entering an art-deco hell.

(Don’t worry – the second we play it, we’ll start a too-cool-for-school It’s-not-all-that Backlash, because that’s the way we roll at Rock Paper Shotgun. We’re absolute cunts.)

Destructoid have been running a dress like Big Daddy compo. It’s over now, and the results have yet to be announced, but their members have been posting about their efforts.

Bless them.

Sexy

Angels Don’t Burn manages to capture the horror and majesty of the Big Daddy using the ever-trusty Blue-Peter staples of Cardboard, Foil and a complete lack of embarrassment.

Also Sexy

Agent Moo decides to disregard the cardboard and foil and just go heavy on the complete lack of embarrassment.

Possible Rapist

Genacon, to be honest, looks a bit like a rapist.

Sexy again

Finally Sazemaster is the person who is i) clearly going to win ii) probably has spent a bit too much time on this iii) will have everyone else who lives with them wondering where all the kitchen foil’s gone iv) The only one who appears to have got his girlfriend/sister to dress up as Big Daddy. And there’s jokes to be made here, but I’m not going to go for them. His Flickr page details the construction in heartwarming detail.

There’s many more examples over in the thread too. We recommend you go look, to give us time to consider whether our Dress Like A Character In Nethack competition’s actually a good idea.

Italian Stalling

By Alec Meer on July 18th, 2007.

Lord, I loves me that Peggle. In fact, I love it even more than I did a couple of weeks ago when I scored it 9/10. I increasingly wish I’d given it 10, if only because our resident misery John Walker would have become so angry about it that we’d have had to kill him.

So, seeing a new game from Popcap, the casual games publisher/developer responsible for Peggle, crop up on Steam excited that growing part of me that’s obsessed with brightly-coloured cartoon puzzle games that don’t make pensioners cower in fear. Venice Deluxe is its name (if there’s one thing to love about Popcap, it’s that it suffixes its every game with Deluxe, just because it can), and shooting shapes is its game.

67 Million Asians and North Americans can’t be wrong

By Kieron Gillen on July 17th, 2007.

Well, they can, but since it’s got an European release, it’s at least worth printing a screenshot to go “Aw! Bless!” at.

Awwwww! Bless!

Aw! Bless!

The game in question is Maple Story. It’s a side-on MMO with the aforementioned 67 million registered users across the aforementioned North America and the aforementioned Asia. And it’s free to play with its funding through micropurchases, which probably explains a lot about the aforementioned 67 million. Note that they don’t actually mention the aforementioned number of people who actually put down cold hard cash on a pair of magic spadangley trousers.

(At which point, that we’re an Brit-blog becomes immediately obvious.)

However, every screenshot I see reminds me of ancient Amiga-Classic Rodland, I’m definitely linking to it.
