WTF WEDNESDAY PRESENTS
A DOUBLE FEATURE #1 DONALD DUCK & KRATOS
First up, we've got an amusing Icelandic trailer parody to whet our curious pallets starring a human Donald Duck. The trailer is filled with the overwrought drama and gritty some-what realism that film critics seem to love.
If you can get past the foreign trappings, you'll love all the references to the Donald Duck comic books (which are the nexus of all modern manga...seriously) and the nostalgia material of Duck Tales A-Woo-Hoo!
Click the link above and enjoy the experience.
Next up on the menu, is a quirky slice of Kratos pie complete with folk-sound, Wes Anderson satire, and a heavy dose of Greek Gods acting like hipster characters straight out of a Criterion release or a film festival. The most charming part about this one is how they actually manage to inject some sort of story and character elements from those sort of films into a game that, when you get down to it, follows this pattern.
Kratos is pissed at Person A. Kratos goes to get help from Person B. Person B was using him or betrays him. Kratos gets revenge on Person A.
Next game...Kratos is pissed at Person B. etc.
Ex. Narrator: So, Kratos like...he solved a puzzle and used a magic mirror to get like to Hades to get Pandora's Box. He gets home, opens it, and there is an I.O.U inside.
