Game Code to Film Costumes an insight



Game adaptations of films have always given me goosebumps. Film studio's and their blood rush to maximise a film's franchise earnings, have contributed to a growing catalogue of unplayable and abysmal offerings.

A quick googly search for some recent offerings, shows that unfortunately the trend is set to continue. You'd think some accountant would notice flop after infamous flop, but apparently there is still some money to be made in rushing a title to market to coincide with a film's release.

So I sat back and smiled smugly to myself, secure in the knowledge my filmgamedar and goosebumps will protect me well into the future. But the smile quickly vanished as I noticed a copy of Doom in my dvd collection.

Several minutes later, and out of breath I scanned my hastily scribbled list of game to film adaptations in my dvd collection. And for the last hour have searched and searched for an excuse as to why my Bloodrayne (yes both of them) dvds are nestled next to my much cherished copy of Blade Runner, and despairing that a copy of the straight to dvd release of Dead Or Alive, is rubbing shoulders with my copy of Downfall.....

So the images above an apology of sorts and the dawning of some insight as to why I'm a complete sucker for game to film releases..... :(

Somebody hexed you. That's the only rational explanation I can find. Oh, and Angelina's face does look, well, weird; not that I would complain or anything...

The Elderly said...

... I'm cursed? ! ?
now that's a much more legitimate explanation, and if true I have therefore no reason to apologise.... :)

Angelina's face?...haven't gotten there yet, mesmerised at the size of the veins on her arms...ok moving up...? ! erm this could take some time..

No. Nostrils will do.

The Elderly said...
