Vidjagame Apocalypse 120 – Hollywood Cameos

VGA120

The Predator’s arrival this week in Mortal Kombat X isn’t exactly unprecedented, considering that the skull-collecting alien hunter has been the ultimate crossover star since the ’90s. But he’s not the first Hollywood character to make an appearance in an unrelated game, either, so we thought it’d be fun to look at five other instances when film icons suddenly showed up in games that had nothing to do with their movies. Then there’s some brief talk about Skullgirls: 2nd Encore and Rocket League, a quick run through some pre-Comic-Con news, and a look at your favorite games of 2015 so far.

Question of the Week

What’s the worst or most embarrassing question you could think of to ask Shigeru Miyamoto? (Make it funny!)

  1. Great episode, guys.

    And I laughed for way too long at Dave’s comment about Jango Fett with “We made him a dad”. That little reality slap really got me.

  2. Hollywood game crossovers always seem interesting and incredibly bizarre to me. Like, it makes sense in say Mortal Kombat, but why have Michael Myers in Call of Duty for instance?

  3. I know you guys don’t like to get too off topic during podcasts, but honestly that leads to a lot of great bits. Part of why this episode was great was because of the amount of off topic stuff, honestly.

  4. The discussions about exclusives were really funny. From press release exclusives to DLC exclusives they all sound ridiculous now that content can be provided to most people so easily.

    It was insulting when Namco pretended like the extra slot in Soul Calibur 4 character select screen wasn’t for the other platform exclusive character.

  5. What’s the worst or most embarrassing question you could think of to ask Shigeru Miyamoto? (Make it funny!)

    Do Mario and Peach do it Ant-Man/ The Wasp style, it’s were the guy shrink via Pym Particles(or mini mushrooms) while the woman grows with Pym Particles…the man then goes inside and use his adult man strength to sassyfry her…yes that really happened.

  6. Hmm….an embarrassing question for miyamoto eh? I would ask him if he would be willing to make a cameo in a sequel to the super hornio bros movies along side ron jeremy.

  7. ”Mr Miyamoto, would you like to donate to this patreon?” Just started listening about 2 weeks ago, keep up the free funny.

  8. Mr Miyamoto, after the wonderful Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past do you think you jumped the shark when you made Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and Zelda’s Adventure?

  9. Can Snoop Dogg just do voice over in all my games from now on? I don’t think I’d ever get tired of it. I laughed out loud at Dave’s Jamie Lee Curtis DLC comment. Good stuff. I was surprised when Chris actually made a brief mention of the Laser Time coins. It was a little funny, sad and disappointing all at the same time. Still love you Chris. Thanks for always putting out fun content. Even if doesn’t get as many views as it deserves.

  10. Question to Myamoto?
    My estranged Uncle use to work for Nintendo, do you know him?

    I finished the podcast on the way home from work on sunday, after learning of Iwata’s death. The dark part of me wanted to say “So, I hear there is an opening at Nintendo…”

    …I hate my self for typing that

  11. QotW: What’s the worst or most embarrassing question you could think of to ask Shigeru Miyamoto? Wanna see a Mariners’ Baseball Game at Safeco Field?
