New Portal Fan Film Is Mostly About Killing Scientists

We are really starting to stretch the fabric of Portal lore. There’s only so much you can do without actually getting JK Simmons to play Cave Johnson. Doesn’t look right but you need his voice. Anyway, here’s a film with GLADoS being a cold-hearted killer.

Cranking Out Awesome Team Fortress 2 Fan Films

Using Source filmmaker, anyone can make amazing movies from Valve assets. Here we see a cool trailer for some sort of runaway train fan film using locations and characters from Team Fortress 2. Well done trailer, but I have to assume that the full movie doesn’t have dialog. That’s the problem with these. Can never tell if anyone actually talks or not.

The Last of Us Fan Film Everyone Loves

Everyone loves The Last of Us. It was a critical success. Unfortunately, I haven’t played it yet. Some fans have added to that by shooting their own story from The Last of Us. Unfortunately, I have no context for any of it and the little girl looks deceptively like a very small grown woman. But looks good and everything works well. Except I have no idea what’s going on.

Final Fantasy VII Fan Web Series Ready to Disappoint

I don’t think anyone really wants this. They may say they want this, but they don’t. Lets not help these people raise an obscene amount of money for something you will hate when you see it. That’s right it’s a Kickstarter. For live-action movie/webseries. Of Final Fantasy VII. With no official Square-Enix support. It doesn’t look bad, but it’s a 2-minute teaser. Most amount of comments are centered around how Barrett is not big enough and his gun is too large. I didn’t hear any of them complaining last night. HEY-OOOOOOOO!

People Still Making Skyrim Fan Films

I just started playing Skyrim thanks to this year’s Steam summer sale. What’s more amazing is people still making tribute videos to a nearly two year old game. I don’t know if they fixed it, but I’ve played it for 19 hours and no one has mentioned any arrows to the knee. I was expecting arrows to the knee! Oh, the video. It’s good.

Fallout Fan Film Has Good Quality to It

I guess this is part of a bigger plotline and series that I haven’t heard about. Doesn’t really explain the 22-minute part of this. A little long for my tastes. Found myself skipping forward to see how they handled the action. Turns out not that bad. Some awkward perspective shots to handle a mutant, but it’s fine. That’s how they did it in the past. What really intrigues me is what they are doing with a whole series of this. Are we running out of post-apocalyptic stories? New Vegas’s DLC can probably vouch for that.

Red Dead Redemption Fan Film Ends Same as Other Fan Film

Bloody good time here with an adaptation of the video game, Red Dead Redemption. Some funny editing tweeks so they could work around having only one side of a Wild West town, and probably some shooting mistakes. The gunslinging and character work isn’t bad though. Unfortunately, it ends the same way as another fan film I posted some time ago. I won’t spoil it, but it makes sense when you think about it. Inspiration wise, not story wise.

This is the Backyard Smash Bros Music Video You Always Wanted

I don’t think I could’ve done better here. They got most of the cool characters and pretty faithful costumes for everyone. Hot chick in most of the costumes earns cool points, too. I was unaware of a Boswer costume that I kind of now want.

This is How To Do Live Action Smash Bros

Sometimes you realize how out of proportion animated characters are when you see their live action variants. Snake and Captain Falcon look weird here. But there’s solid effects and editing to really encompass the Smash Bros style. The hammer makes me smile.

Link Fights Shadow Link and Ends How it Should

When you fight your shadow, it does everything you do. So this fight eventually ends the way you think it should. Because one is a shadow. A little anti-climactic, but a strong film to show the more badass side of Link. With all the women playing Link lately, there has to be some return to normalcy.
