Gameroween 2013 – Video Game Characters that make awesome costumes (Wonderful Red)



Wonderful Red is a relative new comer in the video game arena, as well as his game Wonderful 101, but that fact doesn’t make him (or it) any less awesome. Like your standard super sentai Red is just a ordinary person, but thanks to a object of power and shouting his code phrase (Wonderize Red!) he becomes a super hero with enhanced strength, speed and is almost invincible. However his greatest power is to ‘unite up’ with other Wonderful ones to form different weapons and objects to combat evil (a la Green Lantern). Which is pretty original and awesome (my two favorite descriptors), imagine you’re a minion and you’re attacking a bunch of Technicolor nerds and you think ‘Yeah, I’ve this!’, then they combine into a giant fist or bazooka and mess you up royal – like I said pretty original and awesome. As for Halloween a lot of people may not know who you are if you choose this costume, but a lot of pretty didn’t know Kratos or Master Chief not to long and now there legends. Plus I wouldn’t over think this, after all Halloween is about looking awesome and getting  candy and you will do both with this choice.





That’s Gamertainment – Meet the Pyro (finally!)


Well people after five years of humorous bloodshed, online chaos, and hats upon hats upon hats we FINALLY get the last ‘Meet the’ video from Valve: the Pyro. For the uninitiated I’m talking about Team Fortress 2, game that became a hit several times over and thanks to its dedicated fan base, humor, excellent gameplay, and unapologetic violence it’s going to be around for a very long time. However hands down the best thing about the title is its colorful characters, and I’m not just talking about their rendering. I’m not quite sure  how they made mercenaries and assassins who, at their core, do only one thing (fragging fools), and virtually have no back story in game – be such interesting characters. They show the complexities of these soldiers of fortune through an ingenious way, through quick interview videos (and why they’re doing it in that fashion is explained in their semiannual web comic). So to celebrate the greatness that is Team Fortress 2, Video Game Armada is not only posting the long waited ‘Meet the Pyro’ video but all the Meet the videos while we’re at it. No longer ‘cry some more’ people, we have come full circle at last – Enjoy!:
