Awesome Video of the Day : Ode To Action

1 min read


What happens when a bit of couch multiplayer griefing goes a bit too far? What would happen if say, the faux semi-automatic rifle you’re pretending to shoot your buddy with actually fired real bullets?

What would happen is this, a tribute to the action found in some of your favourite video games and films – complete with silly sound effects, cool VFX and the overly brown palettes of “Next gen games” like Gears of War. If you’ve seen Youtube gamer comedy by the likes of Freddy Wong, you know what to expect – but this one is done pretty damned well enough to warrant a watch.

If you haven’t seen it, check out Thinkingstone production’s “Ode to Action” after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
