• Oh, the Humanity!: House of the Dead

    House of the Dead is based (barely) on Sega's successful trilogy of light gun shooter games. In the interest of full disclosure, I'll mention that I've only played House of the Dead in the arcade a few times, and I don't really remember much about them. According to my three minutes of internet research, House of the Dead: the movie is supposed to be a sort of prequel to the games, leaving the film-makers with very little obligation for faithfulness towards the game's plot lines.

  • Lethal Weapon (NES)

    I cannot in good conscience recommend this game to anyone.

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Street Fighter: The Movie

    As most of you already know, the Street Fighter movie is based on the Street Fighter 2 series (as opposed to the significantly shittier Street Fighter game). The thing is, in the game, fighters from all over the world have entered a competition held by M. Bison to see who the greatest fighter is, with each fighter having their own agenda other than winning some trophy. The makers of the movie took a few creative liberties, scrapping the whole tournament idea, and instead making it about a small war-torn nation that, in the dictatorial iron grip of M. Bison, has become the site of an international incident.

  • [NSFW] Mighty Final Fight (NES)

    Unlike Final Fight for the SNES, this one is full of midgets.

  • Friday the 13th (NES)

    The movies don't suck, while the video game completely does.

  • Oh, the Humanity!: Double Dragon

    It's the distant future of 2007! Cars run on trash, and mohawked-marauders roam the streets after curfew. Also, in the future George Hamilton and Vanna White are news anchors, and Andy Dick is a meteorologist. The movie never really explains why earthquakes have caused these celebrities to pursue careers in broadcast journalism, but whatever.

  • Rocket Ranger (NES)

    It's up to America to save the day, and incidentally, the entire planet.
