It has been exactly one month since that fateful day. It was revealed that Amaterasu, the brilliant she-wolf from Okami, will be a featured playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. For those of you that don’t speak Playstationese, this is a very very very good thing.
In honor of one of the top three video game characters ever created, we present the best Okami artwork from the deviant art contest last year, for your eyepopping pleasure. Enjoy.
Certain things fill me with such exquisite bliss that I cannot help but burst with gratitude for the chance to be a human being.
Okami is one of those things.
Widely regarded as the greatest single video game ever created for the Playstation 2, this incomparable Capcom masterpiece also inspired a deviant art contest last year.
Expect much more Okami on these pages in the coming weeks. For now I leave you with my favorite fan-based interpretations. Bloom the world around you.
Now THAT is the way to drink blood. Jose G. has hooked us up, not only with the proper way to dress our dapper undead Jedah, but with a new keyword.
Darkness means: Free -> Move this character to your hidden or visible area. Use only once per turn and only during the combat phase.
I don’t know about you, but I am mad for the alternate win conditions. Especially when they key on counters. Sink your teeth into the rest of the Jedah legend suite. I’m turning into a bat and flying away until next time, grooving on my favorite background in the video game turned into a Vs. System location.
The Spectacular Silmane Darkstalkers set features the Hunter mechanic to the max. It explores and expands the Capcom mythos beyond belief. In our house it is printed and ready to be sleeved into combat, facing off against my other favorite fan-created dream set: Terminexchet’s magnificent FLCL Essential Collection.
Match-ups like that are one of the reasons that Vs. System will always live beyond the grave.
Just like Darkstalkers.
Our game mechanics form the undead skeleton, and creative community crazies like Darell “Silkmane” Allen cover it completely with the stuff of legends.
If you know me at all, you know that I am numb with pleasure thanks to those three cards. My one-cost army fantasies are coming alive in a whole new way. There are actually ten official UDE cards that interact with Plant Kingdom. And the art. Did I mention the art?
I wish I had more time to talk about it, but school is out for the weekend and I can’t seem to find the words. These cards have me speechless!
Stay tuned all this week for more Spectacular Silkmane, and click right here for the entire Guglio Darkstalkers set.
Guglio’s Darkstalkers set does have some legendary mechanics. Check these out.
That is one wicked bloodsucker. Now let’s wrap this thing up.
Yesterday we introduced the KO’d pile-driving theme of Guglio’s Darkstalkers set. Today we finish the curve with five more character cards. Enjoy.
