Video Game Side Characters: Where Are They Now?

Last week cracked asked their forums to come up with theories about where side-characters in video games hang around today - here's my submissions, no winner this time:

Portal II's Wheatley still is in space:

And the GLaDOS memory cores have found a job:

Former Lucas Arts Star Purple Tentacle from Maniac Mansion started a career in adult movies:

While Mario's sidekick Luigi... Well...

Nightmares, Disasters, Crimes and Videogames

The week is over, the results are out, so it's time for the next batch of pictures I made for the photoplasty competitions at cracked.com.

And quite a batch it is - over twenty pics! That's quite productive, wouldn't you say?

Like last week I managed to place twice in the same category, and even better: One of my entries for "Tiny Changes that would've turned good ideas into disasters" actually won #1!

Ta-Daaaah!

And the second placer made it to #16, possibly because with that moustache Lady Liberty looks like Teddy Roosewelt:

Below are again all the entries that didn't place, but that you still might find funny.

Culture, Alternative Reality Pop-Culture & Dick Jokes

As promised here's the next batch of pictures I submitted to the photoplasty contests at cracked.com - and this time two of them made it into the placers - both for the same topic: Famous Photos - One Minute Earlier

The first picture is a rework of the cover of "Abbey Road" by the Beatles and it placed at #8:

The second picture mate it to position #6 - it's my take on what happened prior to the famous Dali photo with the flying cats - here I included the original picture, so people who don't know Dali still can get it:

I'm actually quite proud of this work - I re-built the room from scratch, added the furniture and puzzled together Dali from several different pictures - the head from one, the torso from another and the legs from yet another picture - so his age and clothes match the one im the original.

Below are the submissions that didn't make it last week - some still pretty funny, I think.

When computergames go wrong...

Some more pictures I made for the cracked.com image manipulation contests. Right now I'm doing quite a bunch of these - it's fun and I learn a *lot* about image manipulation simply by toying around. :)

And lo and behold - the first picture made it to #5 (out of 250 entries) in it's topic "When Video Game Characters Finally Snap"

A huge thanks has to go to to babylon-15dl who created the original picture of "not so slim Chell" I used in my collage!

If you don't get the joke - it's "Chell" the main character from "Portal" and cake becomes something of a focus point during the game's story. If you don't know it - get it. It's quite cheap by now and *highly* entertaining.

cracked.com Photoplasty Contest "Real life plot twists that explain everything" - my entries

You may have noticed that I've begun to make some pictures from time to time - that's because I started to have fun with the photoplasty contests over at cracked.com - they give a subject, actually several subjects each week and then the forum members try to come up with funny picture manipulations.

This week, amongst others, it was supposed to be "Real life plot twists that explain everything", and these are my three entries. The first one fitting since Easter is coming close:
