In our latest Photoshop contest I asked for images of Sonic and Mario characters at the real Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Our contestants either ignored that request completely, or went way dark. This was not entirely unexpected.
With the real Olympic games going on, there’s no reason Mario and Sonic need to remain trapped inside their colorful fantasy land. Let’s send them to Rio, and hope they survive.
Last week we asked our ‘Shop-savvy readers to show us who could play Detective Pikachu in the upcoming live-action film. It all came down to a coin-toss.
We finally get our live-action Pokémon movie, and it’s Detective Pikachu. That’s fine, as long as they get some top-notch talent to play the pocket monster sleuth, and the makeup is good. Perhaps we can show them how it’s done.
Last week-ish I asked our readers to use the power of Photoshop to beat the inevitable flood of Pokémon Go-alike games to the punch. Together they’ve created an array of imaginary AR games ranging from compelling to mildly murderous.
With Pokémon Go fever gripping the bits of the globe currently capable of playing, it’s only a matter of time before other major video game franchise get in on the action. Let’s beat them to the punch, shall we?
The dwarven spectacles and relevant curriculum won Mrichston the Gold ‘Shop Contest Star Sticker, which is a thing I just made up.
Just because Overwatch’s resident turret-banger is getting toned down on consoles doesn’t mean Torbjorn can’t still be a productive member of society. There are plenty of employment opportunities for dwarf with a robotic arm, like whatever you guys come up with this week.
Suuuuuu-paaaaaahh-maaaaaaaaan. And we have a winner.
If you hadn’t already figured that this week’s ‘Shop Contest would somehow involve naked Norman Reedus from Hideo Kojima’s newly-announced Death Stranding, welcome to Kotaku.
The weekend before last I asked our readers, as I do every year, to give us their vision of what E3 2016 might look like. Many of their entries were eerily accurate, and by that I mean not at all accurate, but highly amusing.
At the beginning of May the house that Mario built and Vans announced they would be partnering to release some special kicks featuring various Nintendo characters. Some look pretty nifty! Others... not so much.
After years of near-misses, classic puzzle game Tetris is threatening to become a movie. Maybe if we show them how badly Tetris works with existing movies they will stop.
The helmeted skull logo of Kojima Productions may have an official body now, but the unofficial ones created by our readers for last week’s ‘Shop Contest are much, much cooler.
“Pick a side, and then make it better than the other side.”Those were the instructions I gave in our Civil War-themed Photoshop contest. These are the results.
The results post for last week’s Kotaku ‘Shop Contest has been pushed to next weekend, while I deal with a very high fever and other fun medical things. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Sure we’re dealing with some super-powered being sand Spider-Man isn’t in the art to represent Team Tony, but this is hardly a war. If they want a war, we’ll give them a war.
