Weird Video Wednesday: Que Pasa Neng! El Videojuego

So recently I was investigating rare/expensive PS2 games (as you do) and I happened across an eBay auction advertising a rare PS2 game, the first and only Spain exclusive game on the system. The first thing that grabbed my attention was the boxart.!que pasa neng! the videogame cover

Well, that’s not something you see everyday. Que Pasa Neng! El Videojuego translates roughly as What’s Up Neng! The Videogame, Neng being the name of the character on the cover. This week’s weird video, returning after a short hiatus (i.e. I forgot it was Wednesday) is gameplay footage from this rather unusual game.

You can rest easy – this is satire, thank God, in the vein of Ali G. And, surprisingly perhaps, the game looks fun! I don’t know what is going on exactly: first you’re tasked with a Tetris challenge to stuff people in a car? Then you have to… catch and eat flies – or are you spitting them out? I can’t even tell. It’s all very random and Incredible Crisis-esque.

50 Shades of Play (Welcome to the Playroom)

Went to see Fifty Shades of Grey at the cinema the other day. Being a romance film (of sorts), I knew there’d be a videogame reference somewhere in there. What I didn’t expect was the film’s absolute ripeness for parody… the “Playroom” turned out to be the most interesting and memorable character in the whole movie. Anyway this is my first ever gif, and the video was made in Moviemaker, so go easy. Enjoy these respective tributes to Sega and the Angry Video Game Nerd.

50 shades of sega saturn

 

Christian Grey is sporting at least fifty shades of Sega goodness right there. Of course a rich guy like him would have all the expensive Saturn stuff, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Radiant Silvergun, etc… I hear he’s also got a near-complete Neo Geo collection. And that’s all I have to say on Fifty Shades of Grey. Over and out.

Call of Cutie – bunnies with a taste for war!

The unprecedented success of the Call of Duty franchise and its ubiquitous abbreviation, “CoD”, has brought the language of the fish market into internet cafes and game shops, where before there was just the smell. I wonder if the developers of Call of Cutie were confused by the constant sound of Call of Duty’s fishy acronym (I know I am), and wanted to replace CoD with something gentler and more pleasing to the ear: CoC.

Call of Cutie is a first-person-cuter or FPC. This brand new sub-genre subverts the conventions of the FPS, doing to the genre what the Parodius series and games like Star Parodier and Harmful Park did to the shoot ’em up. Welcome to the harsh, war-torn world of Call of Duty, bunny-style. Continue reading
