Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Manborg: Separated at Birth?S

I’d been hearing about Manborg—the no-budget homage to 1980s VHS action movies—for a while now. But I only realized that it was out on DVD today after I saw this tweet from Irrational Games writer Joe Fielder:

Meanwhile, in video game land, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon comes out today, too. The creators behind the two works clearly share a lot of the same obsessions but it’s a huge coincidence that they’re out on the same Tuesday in April. Well, either a coincidence or the renaissance of corny, half-human, half-machine heroes is about to kick into high gear.
