LoK Videos

December 12, 2009

This post is essentially a linkdump to a large number of videos from the Blood Omen/Legacy of Kain video game series. It’s mostly in game event order, though with the time travel paradoxes and wacky chronology of the games, any attempt to put events in a strictily chronological order would be doomed to being horribly confused. Perhaps making it chronological from the perspective of a particular character like Kain or Raziel would make more sense. Anyhow, this is a group of the more significant events throughout the series and the entirety of the cutscenes from Defiance, the last game of the series. Probably needless to say, massive spoilers ahead.

These games were one of the many influences on the cosmology of the Legend of the Archons setting, and I’ve decided that the vampires of that setting will be something of a shout-out to this series in some ways.

Also, this series is one of those that managed to survive a change in genre Рfrom top down quest with inventory and all that to a 3D action/puzzle adventure  series.

This is hopelessly geeky, but anybody that has ever read my blog would expect nothing less.

Behold, Lysol Jones’ concept for a bold fighting game in the vein of Super Smash Brothers:

I discovered this DeviantArt gem during a wiki walk at TVTropes. Please get a look at the fullview in the gallery itself. It is glorious to behold. I’d play that game.

Here’s a list of the characters that are used above, with a little commentary from myself: (more…)

A Couple Of Happies For Today.

December 30, 2008

I felt like sharing a couple of happies with you, because I’m awesome like that.

Teamwork, baby! I didn;t realize they train pandas to act like me. Penguin Santas!

I am normally hostile to putting jackets, sweaters etc on animals. However, somehow penguins in Santa suits get a pass. That might be the meds talking though. Also, the pandas have clearly been paying attention to the teamwork aspects of maneuver rules in Fate3/Spirit of the Century.

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown

December 25, 2008

I’ll admit I always liked the tree better before the kids put all the extra bling on it. This bit’s one I’ve always found touching, however. Again, merry Christmas.

You Are a Pirate!

March 31, 2007

Check out this “You Are a Pirate!” video. It’s hypnotic, it’s bizarre, and it’s from Fred Perry. It’s made especially disturbing by remembering that this song is from a children’s album. Plus, a lock broken via… er… remarkable means. Leprechaun pirates and ninjas with an odd method of digging. Okay.
