What’s that you say? Gaming has some great heroes these days. Korvo from Dishonored, Kratos from God of War and Desmond McMonkeyface from the Assassin’s Creed franchise? I scoff at your selection. Scoff to the max. Back in the day when those guys were nothing more than pen on paper diaper concept drawings, there was one hero who stood tall and kept damn quiet. Gordon Freeman was his name, and he was an ass-kicking scientist in a biohazard suit and spectacles, swinging a crowbar around and kicking head-crab head-ass. And now he’s been immortalized, in statue form.
Halo 4, from 343 Industries is coming soon - and from first hand reports, it could be the best Halo yet. Halo’s one of those odd franchises that doesn’t just attract fans - it attracts super fans, with people completely losing themselves in Spartan lore. If you’re one of those super fans, you could end up winning a pretty damned exclusive replica of Halo’s iconic MA-37 assault-rifle.
Mortal Kombat is a serious game. How serious you ask? Why, dead serious(Ha!) I shout in response! Having your heart and spine ripped out daily, while fighting inter-dimensional monsters and mutants is no laughing matter, something that is reflected in this Sub Zero bust. Just look at those eyes people! They’re emitting all kinds of Nic Cage crazy!
When it comes to dragon-slaying, there are some fantastic weapons lying around Skyrim, and while my favourite decapitator will always be my Daedric long-sword with dual fire and ice enchantments (Or the tepid water enchantment as that one sarcastic dragon called/shouted it), it’s just a pity that I’ll never see it in real life.
Well, not unless I grind my real life perk of creativity up to a 100 that is, much like what Bill Doran has done. The video game replica prop master recently cranked out another perfect masterpiece, and it has me praying to Mehrunes Dagon for one of his creations.
