Every weekly wrap up should start with a Freddie Wong video, right? Right! Here’s Freddie and crew bringing some Katamari Damacy into the real world.
If you’d prefer to look at the proper way to rip off some vampire clothing in Akihabara–from the game Akiba’s Strip (har har)–here’s a gallery of the art behind that very thing, courtesy of Kotaku.
Readers of the blog know we’re all very obviously excited about this fall’s Dark Souls. We really should have submitted something to the game’s design a shield contest, but we’re not that gluttonous for punishment. Because we’d lose.
Finally, friends of Meat Bun and co-stars of Giant Robot’s Game Night 5, Reverge Labs’ Skullgirls, was recently the subject of a Kotaku feature (put together by Mike) highlighting the in-jokes of fighter Peacock. Can you spot the Hsien-ko and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure gags?
What have we been talking about on Twitter this week? New Dreamcast games for one thing. Yes, they’re still making games for Sega’s unsuccessful final attempt to compete in the console war. Sturmwind is, like most new Dreamcast games, a side-scrolling shoot ‘em up. Is it also the first DC game with achievements?!
And speaking of new games, The Elder Scrolls V exists! Don’t count on a Dreamcast version, though.
The cutest thing of the week is probably Japanese video game Zombie Daisuki which features idol group S/mileage in its commercial — or CM as the cool Japanophiles call ‘em.
Delving further into S/mileage, we learn that it’s comprised of former members of pop group Hello! Pro Egg. How do they do this with English?!
On the cool front, WETA Workshop’s working Sentry Turret from Team Fortress 2 and artist Dave Rapoza’s artwork for the retail version of Super Meat Boy are currently fighting it out for the week’s most awesome creations.
