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.
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.
On TCGplayer his is known as “emmanuel”. On dot org his handle is JoseG. He is Jose Grau, and he is my new hero.
I have never been able to get enough of Anita. I often play Marvel Vs. Capcom in Beginner mode so I can just bring her back and forth onto the screen until my eyeballs are full. Now she goes Vs. System, becoming a talisman in the process.
Feast your eyes, share your reactions, and check in all week for more Jose G!
In my humble opinion, that is the swan song from Silkmane’s Darkstalkers set. Click that link for the entire run. Then meet back here on Monday for the beginning of emmanuel’s completely different Capcom concoction!
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.
