Maniac Fashion: Day Of The Tentacle Shoes

By John Walker on April 16th, 2009.

So pretty!

Maya Plisetskaya, whose Monkey Island shoes we were so enamoured with last month, emails us to let us know her next footwear-framed masterpiece is unveiled. Day of the Tentacle All Stars! Day of the Tentacle is obviously the best of all the LucasArts adventures, and anyone who would disagree is clearly a dangerous lunatic, making these the ultimate Converse of all time. Maya has optimistically put them for sale on eBay for €250 (and not the rather more optimistic €250,000 I first misread the European money-punctuating comma to denote). If I had oodles of money I’d be buying them immediately – they’re my size! Someone else should, because they’re utterly lovely. More fun than a jumpsuit full of weasels.

JoJo’s Fashion Show

By Kieron Gillen on December 18th, 2007.

Despite being someone who allowed his fashion sense to condense into a comfortable black shadow about a decade back, I found myself unable to resist playing Gamelab’s recent game: Jojo’s Fashion Show, because I’m perfectly at home with my inner cliched bitchy gay fashionista.

Clothes are in this year.

In short: You have to dress models as fashionably as possible to fulfill a vague look (“Racy”, “Summer”, “Bridal”), then push them onto the runway to see how your taste in fashion matches the games. While clearly aimed outside the traditional gamer market, there’s something intrinsically funny about imagining the standard gamer demographic obsessively playing it. And it’s actually neatly done, polished and better than you’d expect it to be. There’s a 2 Peggles Demo available to try, which gives you an hours free play, but I suspect you’ll find some further impressions and/or ladies in their undergarments beneath the cut.

The Worst Ninja, Chapter 2: Shoes

By Alec Meer on August 30th, 2007.

Continuing my abortive attempts to understand Ultima Online: Kingdom Reborn, the remake of the venerable MMORPG.

Today I killed a llama. No-one seemed to mind. I also killed a goat and a horse, but a frog beat the hell out of me. The fact it was called ‘Bogling’ rather than ‘Frog’ is, in retrospect, a reasonable clue. Later, when it got dark, I killed a cougar that I was convinced was trying to steal babies from cots or something. I’ve yet to see any other cougars, so now I’m a bit worried I’ve killed the only big cat in New Haven. I’m not supposed to be killing endangered species – I’m supposed to be a ninja, noblest of all the warriors. Except I’m a ninja that still can’t hide.

Full-on ninja-versus-llama action: the stuff they couldn’t show in cinemas!

After the jump: the murderous healer and the great shoe drought. Read the rest of this entry »
