Fort90 Journal » Junko Mizuno X Metal Gear?

In this post:
1. yet another wild and wacky assortment of random game related pics, some most have seen before, and others, I’m betting are totally new

Screw the PS3 slim from yesterday, the real story of this week was first delivered by Mia, very late the night before, via the forums and her Twitter…

… And here’s a slightly better image….

… As we all know by now, Persona 3 is coming to the PSP, as Persona 3 Portable. And that’s all we really know, other than the main character this time is a girl. Not sure how deep the gender swapping goes, but thus far there’s “Dudelisabeth”…

… Mia also adds “I’m realizing that you probably get to f*ck the student council guy, which will be hilarious.” Indeed.

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this. Obviously I’m interested, but still can’t help wonder if an opportunity is being missed or wasted. Specifically, a port of Persona 2, which makes the most sense as a follow up to part one’s PSP outing, though mostly because us Americans never got the whole package. Then again, asking for effectively two whole games is asking a lot, but I’m also confused as to why the arguably superior in every which way Persona 4 wasn’t also chosen. Maybe that’s next? And maybe part 3 was more popular in Japan? I should try to find out. I just really hope that P4’s enhancements when it came to social links carries over, which as Mia once again explains: “i.e. ACTUALLY GETTING TO KNOW THE KIDS YOU’RE DUNGEON CRAWLING WITH FOR HOURS ON END.” Otherwise, my interest level will be severely diminished.

Oh, who am I kidding? The chance to bang Yukari and Mitsuru as a girl? Dude, sign me up!

UPDATE: A few additional details have come in, with an ever better quality scan, and you can play as either a male or female. That’s cool, though I’m still far more interested in yuri action, Dudelisabeth or not.

Anyway, may as well once again dip into the my video game related image folder…

– First up, and as noted yesterday, I finally got a PlayStation 3, dude! And I totally haven’t set it up yet, dude! I once had a pal who seriously wanted to strangle me for having a Wii that Nintendo was nice enough to pass along as a thank you gift, which I kept in its box for over a year (I simply had to wait till I got into my new digs, since I simply didn’t have the room for any Wii Sports bowling in my cramped Park Slop, sorry Sunset Park hovel), and might try to do the same with the PS3. As also noted, I’m waiting for a new television stand before redoing my entire set-up. But I already have a lengthy list of stuff to get, and 99.9% of them are downloadable titles. And at the very top is WipeOut HD, so on that note, here’s a bunch of beautiful snapshots courtesy Offworld

Here’s another image from Mutatione, courtesy of Brandon once again, this time an actual screenshot!

– This is definitely one of the better uses of the Space Invaders alien for sure…

– Somewhat of a follow up to the pair of Offworld posts I mentioned on Saturday, which were Disney related, this one also involves Ninja Gaiden…

… The artist is actually the same one behind the Bros Before Hoes image that I mistakenly identified as a shirt design, as well as the Clockwork Orange 2600 cart from before that. Even more examples of his/her most excellent work can be found over at Flickr

– Speaking of Kung Fu, here’s something I came across on Pixiv recently…

– This illustration from a Sony patent was all the rage last week, and for good reason…

… Those who need clarification should simply head towards the reigning king of the wacky video game patent seekers, Siliconera.

– Also quite popular was this scan of an old postcard from Pac-Man Land

– Sticking with Tiny Cartridge for just one sec

– I’ve always been of a fan of the art of BioShock than the game itself; I just find most first person shooters to be “eh.” But I’ll still be picking up the sequel, to see this guy in action…

… To be honest, he looks a tad bit too modern-ish when compared to the original, but then again, maybe there’s a real reason for that? Guess I should finally beat the game and find out.

– Thank God, at long last, someone has finally done a proper-write up of the absolutely insane Game Boy comic series published by Valiant from the early 90s, along with a few choice scans…

… Yup, just as bat-sh*t wacky as I remembered them to be!

– This, in case anyone was wondering, is the epitome of awesome…

– I really wish AMUSEMENT, that gaming lifestyle from France, would come out in American already. At the very least, I really wish I could get my hands on the latest issue here in the States (anyone who can possibly help out, please email me). Even though I won’t be able to understand the interview with Kenji Eno, I’d at least like to have a printed version of…

… It also goes without saying that no other video game publication in America comes remotely close in terms of it’s approach of such subject matter. The only thing that could possibly compare is from Japan, Studio Voice to be exact. BTW, here’s a closer look from one of their photo essays entitled “Made of Myth” which is fairly self-explanatory…

… The rest can be found here, in all its full-rez glory.

– On a somewhat similar note, and via the always great GameSetWatch, comes this photoset of video games being played out for real

– And here we have yet another video game tribute art booksk, which are starting to pop up everywhere it would seem. But that’s okay, so long as neat stuff comes from them, like this totally hawt illustration of Joust…

I also really dig this Starfox piece as well…

– Speaking of video game tribute books… and going back to Pixiv… as some folks already know, I run the blog component of Life Meter Comics, which sadly has been somewhat ignored as of late, but my recent update somewhat fixes that

– And here’s a few pieces also via Japan’s equivalent of DeviantArt that simply don’t quite fit on Life Meter, hence why I’ll post them here! Like this wonderful piece by one of the artists of the Zelda piece that’s included in the link above…

– I really dig this particular person’s love for Metal Gear

– Same with this particular artist; always nice to see some love for Raiden (he wasn’t that bad in MGS2)…

Here’s someone who really knows how to properly render girls, including these two ladies from Capcom…

And I like this one as well, though I have zero idea what’s going on (hope it’s not ultra perverted or anything like that, but you know, Japan and all)…

This person really knows how to do mecha, especially Virtual On…

– This one is pretty conservative, comparatively speaking, but honestly, when was the last time you saw Darius fan art of any sort?

– On a related note, here we have someone who clearly loves shumps; I’m fairly certain this first one is supposed to be the Vic Viper, but as a cute animu chick…

I dig the idea of the Ikaruga craft, reborn as some bad-ass EVA unit..

And a bunch of shump ladies this time, highlighted by the lead from Katie’s favorite STG, Trigger Heart Excelica, though my personal fave is the Thunder Force 5 girl to the far left…

– I have no idea who this are from (I somehow misplaced the Pixiv URL, apologizes), nor do know what the hell is going on…

… Actually, I think I kinda do.

– Yet another mystery artist, though I mostly definitely would play this version of Kingdom Hearts…

– Though my absolute favorite artist from that site would have to be someone Masao, whom I’ve featured both here and Life Meter in the past. In addition to that Kung Fu/Thomas the Tank Engine piece from before, here’s just a few extra samplings of his genius at work…

… I also thoroughly enjoy his Roll (you know, Mega Man’s sister) making out with Roll, but since I know most will find it objectionable, any interested parties will have to click here. BTW, anyone with an hour to spare can do no wrong by checking out the rest of massive body of work.

– Gonna end things on an ultra obscure note: via some Rozen Maiden fan site that I stumbled across, can’t remember how, here we have Suigintou and Shinku, playing against each other, both in game and out, via Gebetgarten, the arcade brawler based on the manga/anime that Taito developed a few years back…

… Don’t ask me why I know so much about Rozen Maiden.
