Alright, hang with me here. While gazing at Dishonored's box art, I convinced myself I was looking at a deranged steampunk Destro. I've been too cute with topical subjects lately, so I'm just going to give everyone a concept and let you run wild with it. I want to see insane G.I. Joe cameos in video games this week.
That's it. That's all. Don't consider that above to be a source image. Nor are you limited to using Dishonored. You can stick cartoon or movie Joes or even box-art Joes and Cobra in any video game, or vice versa. I'm banking on the inherent humor of the Joes' ridiculous costumes, largely represented by the old Sunbow cartoons when Flint or Footloose or someone would stand there, hands on hips, telling kids why it's a bad idea to drink rubbing alcohol.
So, simple crossover: G.I. Joe, or Cobra, cameos in video games, or vice versa. I think you guys can do this blindfolded, or with a carcinogenic beryllium steel mask affixed to your face. Go to town.
Remember, you have to post submissions in the new forum for the Kotaku 'Shop Contest. I know it's not as fun as seeing everyone's creations underneath this post, but this way automatically displays them in chronological order, which everyone seems to prefer.
Because of this, comments are disabled in this post to avoid confusion. You must visit the 'Shop Contest Forum to participate or to see this week's subissions. After you create your 'Shop, you'll need to post it there. Here are the rest of the guidelines for doing so.
1. Go to the 'Shop Contest Forum
2. Click "Add Image" in the upper right above the comment window.
3. Click "Upload an Image Instead." Then click the "Choose File" button. Browse your desktop, find the image, and click "open."
4. If you prefer, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then click "Add image" in the upper right above the comment window. Paste the image URL into the field that says "Image URL."
5. You can add editorial commentary if you want, but then just hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, paste the image URL as a comment.
6. This is important: Keep your image size under 1 MB. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels.
All set? Great. Now, Gentlemen, start your 'shopping!
