if you read this, it is the same post I did on tomopop
Long time no see eh? Finally got around to finish Travis Touchdown after finding a copy of NHM Paradise with actual english voice over, hip hip hofuckhead.
Also in case you live on the backside of mars and don't know anything about Travis, he is a otaku assassin shat out by the insane mind that is Suda51 and servers as a introspection for gamers and the games the play.
Oh and he also cuts of heads and has a kitten named Jeanne.
Matthew Razak did an awesome rundown on the meanings behind the first 2 games
You can read it here
EDIT: Jonathan Holmes also analyzed the games villians, how could I forget that?!
Read that two part article on the bosses here
But I digress.
As before I used the SF3 Sota Remy figure as a base and even though I prefer the figure of the Joker from Arkham Asylum (the game) I made, I am nevertheless happy with the final figure.
Someone else also did a pretty awesome Travis figure in 1/6 scale. Oh who could have guessed that sculpting sunglasses in 1/12 scale would be so much more of a pain in the ass than in 1/6 scale.
The Blood Berry beam katana (what a fantastic name) was rather easy to do.
Only a piece of wire with epoxy on it.
At first I wanted to do a light up version but just did't find a small enough light.
Still looks good though in those pics.
I might aswell talk about the game now.
As I said above, there are versions of Paradise that actually have the english voice overs.
Some of the text is still in Japanese but it never messed with the gameplay.
So as long as you are willing to wait a month for the damn thing to arrive from Japan and know a good tax free seller you're good to go.
Nevertheless, FUCK UBISOFT for refusing to bring this gem to the states and europe.
One last thing though, stay the fuck away from the PS3 version, it has no blood :(
Oh yes, what a brilliant idea, cut the over the top gore out from one version and hope it sells better on the 360.
Fucking pretzel logic bullshit.
There are 2 more minutes of Travis in the video below if you don't desperatly need to save that time for all the busy browsing you have to do.
It's set to "Bad Girl" "Shinobu" and "Heavenly Star" from the NMH soundtrack.
this has been going on to long allready, so thanks for looking again
have a chocolate cranberry sunday!
