VIDEO GAMES!

I'm not that familiar with X-Box (actually, I suck at all video games and my young nephew is always beating me whenever I try), but there is a pretty cool game called Soul Caliber 4 that allows you to create your own characters to fight with. NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay, has the game and created a few characters based on SENTINELS (Firebomb, Harlette and Templar) and our lead character from NEVERMINDS (Alanis) that I wanted to show here because they look so awesome. The game really brings them to life and allows you to even pick personality traits for them. Harlette acts just like I thought she would and Templar is very proper and noble. The animation is also incredible and everything from the hair blowing to the eyes blinking is there. The one weird thing is that sometimes when a character gets hit really hard by their opponent, they lose some of their armor or it gets chipped away. In the case of Alanis from NEVERMINDS, she really doesn't have any armor and when playing her, she got hit and instead of armor falling off, she lost her clothes! Doh! Lol, no worries though, she had a bikini on underneath somehow. Anyway, the game is really cool and I thought I'd share these quick pictures I asked Jamie to take of them. Thanks, Jamie.

Those are awesome. I wish I didn't suck at video games or I would totally by SC4 just to do this. Templar looks great, but what's up with the sword? It's crazy.

Templar kicks ass, Keefer. He is really powerful in the game. The only problem with him is that he is a little slower then some of the others cause of the sword and the moves he makes. So far, Phazer and Firebomb are the best fighters. They're fast and jump all over the place. Harlette and Electron work pretty weel too, but not as quick.
Jamie did a bunch of them and they didn't take him long at all, just a few minutes.
