Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

G&T Photoshop Battle Reborn Part 2

(For the last photoshop battle 'Movie Posters' click here)

Note from the 'Dude':
Good people of Penny Arcade, welcome back to the battle. Our last photoshop battle went great, many amazing posters, many amazing photoshops. Our last endeavor however was just a warm up, now we get into the heat of it all. So gather ye round, plug in your mice and wacoms and flick on your favorite image editing program. The battle for 'revived game series' begins NOW.

REVIVED GAME SERIES
THE GOAL: Look in your old stash of games lost to age and time. Pick out one that you just know would make a great new game. We are looking for new kinds of box art, screen shots, advertisements, and any kind of image that convinces us that the old game needs to be remade. Have at you all, make the forums proud.
(Also, if there was a game revived like 'Bionic Commando' that you didn't like. Make a better concept for it!)

REPEATED MESSAGE FROM THE LAST BATTLE:
Quick Q&A:

Prizes?:
Prizes you ask? The only prize you will get will be that of glory and fame! Maybe carpal tunnel syndrome.

Will this one be properly archived?:
I would hope someone far better then I could archive the proceeding events for future generations to observe. Much like a good ol' wrestling match from the 1980's, I can only assume the children of the future would like to see what there ancestors had done in the past.

Rules?:
The only rule that really comes to mind is to follow the 'concept'. If you have a really cool video game movie poster and we are doing 'If video game character's had there own 80's hair metal bands, what would there album art look like?' then this probably isn't the time to post it. Oh, and maybe don't make the posters huge. If you want to make a super hi-res print out have an external link.

    Probably cause he knew he'd win his own thread. The Portal one was clearly the best and most authentic/professional looking.

    I'll probably make something for this one, too, but nothing is inspiring me at the moment.

    Sure is. One of the first ones to come to mind whilst thinking about it. The only one I wasn't satisfied with was the Airplane! reference. But it was difficult for me to find a decent enough screenshot that didn't have the title card on it.

    I thought up something for Dino Crisis 5, comparing it to Resident Evil 5. Then I thought of the racism light that is in RE5 and I thought about how that could be in DC5. Then I thought about what ethnic group would be racially hilarious and (in)appropriate with dinosaurs. I had an idea, and then I laughed at how funny it would be, and then I buried it because I knew the mods would ban me, then hunt me down at pax and kick me in balls.

    Why not just give the raptors afros and the playable character is a chicken leg, or watermelon slice? :P

    Wouldn't the new Dino Crisis actually be #4? Or are you just skipping #4 for the direct comparison to RE5?

    You need to look back to the Atari 2600 era for some gems.

    Stuff like Comic Bakery.

    And Commander Keen.

    Well, I very much like the idea of a new Crusader game. I have some free time today, let's see what I can do.

    (PS, 'Crusader - No Remake' sounded cool, but I am going to try and make a box for a third game in the franchise.)

    When I got my PSOne, I had two games that came with it... Kurushi and some other game that, as a testament to Kurushi's awesomeness, I can't even remember its name. Even after my library expanded considerably I still played Kurushi frequently.

    Not very good at this, but here's my attempt at a Kurushi 2 box art.

    Not my best, but it's what I can do for now. Heavily inspired by the original cover for the first game. I played and beat 'No Remorse' once when I was a kid, and I lost my CD and never played it again. It's the kinda game that went out on top when I wanted way more, I wish I had a way to play it now-a-days.

    I have a copy of the second game sitting on my bookshelf and I don't play it because I couldn't get dosbox to work right. The video kept coming out scrambled.

    I wonder why nobody has really made an effort to make a G.I. JOE game that isn't a movie tie-in/cash-in...

    Or did C&C get the JOE/Cobra dichotomy down too well?

    I really do want to see this game. Rush 2049 was amazing, and a modern version of that (not that shit LA Rush which missed the whole point of the old ones) would be so awesome in my books.

    Crap job on the title. Everything else though... Well, still a crap job.
    Enjoy anyway, and think fondly of X-Wing, TIE Fighter, X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter and X-wing Alliance as you contemplate a game that will never, ever be made.

    Really, the thought of piloting a fighter through the massive battle at the beginning of Ep III should give any space sim fan a raging hardon that could shatter diamond.
