Coming Attractions: October (Tiger Oliver)

By – ‘Tiger’ Oliver
Between Hans and I, there’s a lot going on for the O’Colly Gamers this October: more reviews, some classic reviews, (hopefully) some PC game reviews, coverage of PAX and other events plus some other rants and features that will probably pop up as the month keeps on rolling.

As far as yours truly is concerned, I have a very special series that I will get to..

…now.

Lately, I’ve managed to catch a bit of the Resident Evil movies on one of the cable movie channels (and after trying to remember exactly which channel, I still for the life of me can’t figure it out). As far as a movie, it’s a very impressive movie. In comparison to the video game, however, not so much.

However, that’s pretty much been the case, has it not? Think about it: Street Fighter (not the 1970’s Sonny Chiba cult-classic, the horrible 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme one), Mortal Kombat: Annhilation, Doom and, quite possibly the worst video game movie EVER, Super Mario Brothers. All of these have one thing in common:

With the Silent Hill movie and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, both of which I haven’t seen and can’t vouch for personally, as well as the Resident Evil franchise, it seems video game movies have really kind of…well…they suck eggs, to put it WAY TOO mildly. In fact, some are so bad, they’ve turned into cult-classics. Others, like Resident Evil are good movies in themselves, but barely hold any relationship to the actual game.

That’s why this October, I will be digging into the rental sections of Hastings and Blockbuster (and possibly the $5 bin at one of the pawn shops here in Stillwater) to view and review some of the best most infamous video game movies of all time – movies that are so bad, they’re down-right scary as hell.

Please keep me in your prayers, I may need some divine intervention to get through this month.
