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.
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.
Last week I asked our Photoshop-savvy readers to bring a little bright and fluffy to the dreary world of Dark Souls. This is the prettiest ‘Shop Contest winners post ever.
I know that fans of From Software’s brutal action role-playing games love their darkness, but with the third game hitting shelves last week I am getting sick and tired of dreary screenshots. Let’s brighten ‘em up a bit, shall we?
I know it feels like we’re piling up on Trump a little today, but in a Photoshop contest about a Pokemon that can copy anything, lharm explained so much with a single image it had to win.
Ditto is a Pokemon that can transform itself into a near-perfect copy of any opponent. With rudimentary image manipulation skill, anyone could be a Ditto. Anyone.
I promised myself I would never give our readers my picture to play around with, but the reaction to my recent beard loss was too much to ignore. The facial hair is gone but you can rebuild it. Make it strong. Faster. You have the technology.
And so a last-minute idea results in one of the best Kotaku ‘Shop Contests ever, with so many excellent entries there was no way I could pick one for the top. So I picked three.
Apparently I wanted to see Pokken Tournament and UFC 2 mashed together so badly that I couldn’t stop with just one image. Perhaps you nice people can help.
After several painstakingly thorough seconds of consideration, I give you the winner and subsequent other winners of our Stardew Valley-themed Photoshop contest. It was a tough decision, only it really wasn’t.
We’ve gone just a tad Stardew Valley crazy here at Kotaku, but that’s okay—so have plenty of other folks. So much so that the pixels have started bleeding into real life scenes of rural living. Or at least they will have once this week’s ‘Shop Contest is done.
They probably should have gone with “Bright Sun” and “Dark Moon” or something to that effect for the next two Pokemon games, but they didn’t. Pokemon S&M it is. All we need now is a Pokemon wearing a gimp mask and . . . ah yes, Banette. Close enough. Let’s do this.
Earlier this week Mattel introduced its 2016 Barbie lineup, packed with new shapes and sizes and one exciting new profession. Game developer Barbie is a great idea, though while I’ve seen plenty of devs working from a laptop on a crystal cylinder, I think we can do better.
