Just to brighten your day, here’s a comical blend of classic American and modern Japanese pop-cultures.
If you’re looking for a good laugh, stop by your local arcade and play through the original X-Men arcade game. The original X-Men arcade game is one of the most poorly translated games of all time. It’s packed with tons of memorable battle cries, like “I am Magneto, you are nothing!” and “X-Men, welcome to die!!”
Of course, it is important to remember that nothing will ever top Zero Wing in the category of “poorly translated games”. Zero Wing features such memorable soliloquies as, “All your base are belong to us” and “Somebody set up us the bomb.” Zero Wing’s grammatical mishaps have earned it a significant cult following, and one can usually find elements of “All your base” featured in many games, movies, and editorials (like this interesting piece of political commentary).
I can’t believe that I have never seen Red vs. Blue before. Red vs. Blue is the popular machinima comedy based on Halo. Red vs. Blue will have you laughing non-stop. Combined with my recent coverage of Halo’s physics, it must be Halo comedy week! Just so you know what you’re getting into, I’ve cut a short preview from Episode 39: Best Laid Plans. Enjoy!
Halo, I’m sure you will all agree that it’s one heck of a game. However, even great games have their faults. And these faults can be highly entertaining. Don’t believe me? Michael Heilemann originally posted this short movie as proof. Ok, so you could say that their space-age fuels really are that volatile, but it’s still funny.
