This is sure to surpass the original and will clearly blow it from the ocean.
Please relax and indulge with a cacophony of personality and intrigue.
|At the time, the horror maestro scored a hat-trick of zombie munching mayhem...|
|Although not mentioned here, this was subbed Top Secret Episode.|
That shot of Golgo is pretty cool...
|Meet Snake, hired by oil king Leonard Dawson to rub out Golgo 13.|
|The name's Snake, Solid Snake.|
Apart from the above insect, there are two other types of note...
|This is Val Lehman portraying 'Queen Bea' Smith in classic Australian soap Prisoner. For the reboot, Danielle Cormack stars as Bea and Wentworth Prison is surprisingly good.|
|Let's all not meet up at a disco in the year 2000.|
|Random, so random but so relevant.|
|Neil Young - Hawks & Doves|
|SNK's Garou: Mark of the Wolves had a new look Terry and also replaced Geese with Terry's protege Rock. Anyway, Tel and Rock wore a similar design on their jackets...|
A modest combo of generalising video game sleeve art.
|This is Quintet's Actraiser 2 on SNES. While mooching about in Stormrook, you stumble across this 'brown' background.|
|Battletoads on the NES. I mean seriously, what the FUCK?|
|This nuke from The King of Fighters 2001 should be fairly famous. Hmmm, this looks very similar to something that went before.|
|Test subject Tetsuo Shima had quite an ordeal in Akira. It's rather amazing that this 1988 film adaptation of Katsuhiro Otomo's anime was on a far smaller scale. It's baffling how they got away with this shit and takes plagiarism to a higher floor.|
|I wasn't sure if my eyes were playing a sick prank and still don't know. Anyway, this poster for Series 3 of the smash hit Sky show is surely an 'accidental' representation of some unknown musical by Victor Hugo?|
|Anger? I'll give you more than that. How about rage, right up the booty.|
|Link didn't become cute until 2002 but wow, Level-5 never stole from Miyamoto's 1986 design? Oh my tummy, of course not.|
I pick further rabbits out of the hat.
The posture, oh the posture boys and girls... I love it, I really do. The former got away with it, until now.
|No it can't be, surely not, er Godzilla? An incredible exploitation of a mad monster used in The Revenge of Shinobi. Solicitor on speed dial perhaps?|
|Due to multiple endings, you have to do what's necessary for him to become the final challenge in Konami's original 1999 psychological nightmare Silent Hill.|
|Bykhee is the end boss in Irem's rather dark 'R-Type time-out' 1989 shmup X-Multiply.|
There is definitely something about these two retro pieces.
|Look at the pseudo V shape.|
|A strange resemblance?|
It inspired a few pixels...
|Turrican II, Factor 5 (Amiga)|
|Axelay, Konami (SNES)|
|Cyber-Lip, SNK (Neo Geo)|
|Don't be afraid, Robert Englund only exists in our dreams...|
|His girlfriend is surely a little young for him.|
Now for another anomaly.
I nearly gave this the benefit of the doubt but decided against it.
|Look at Skull Mountain in the beginning of Castlevania IV.|
|I'm surely mad for thinking I can link it to this.|
|In Data East's Diet Go Go, you had to encourage obesity. In today's society, that would go down really well and probably be banned. I really wish I was joking... This scientist geezer looks a bit concerned.|
|Dr. Muckly turns out to be insane in SNK's fruity Nam 1975.|
|Dr. Eggman, aka Robotnik.|
If this was a music game okay, but as it isn't, I have no choice to turn Mr. Mean. Just Imagine what John Lennon would think.
|In a bizarre turn of events, it looks near identical to the psychedelic art used in The Beatles 1 album, released in 2000.|
To wrap up, I end with this.
|Part of the intro to Quintet's RPG, Illusion of Gaia.|
|The choice was made to feature another cranium for this album art.|
|Garou is back and with it, Grant's stage. Hello, what's that in the middle?|
Until we shake hands again...
