Vidjagame Apocalypse 237 – Mummies I’d Like to Frag

This is the biggest release week of the year – big enough, in fact, to hold two separate games that feature Egyptian mummies as plot points. So with help from Matthew Jay, we round out our month of macabre Top 5s with a look at our favorite shambling, wrapping-covered monsters. Then we dig into Assassin’s Creed Origins, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Super Mario Odyssey, The Mummy Demastered, and much more before looking at the defunct game studios you’d resurrect from the dead.

Question of the Week
If you could dress as any video game character for Halloween, who would it be?

  1. QOTW: The pumpkin head Reaper from Overwatch. Costume looks badass as it is and would be awesome in person if 100% nailed.

  2. My mind is in the gutter..SMH. When the QotW said nail it, I thought…other things. Damn you lasertime for turning my mind into a more filthy wasteland

  3. Duder don’t trade in your consoles sell that shit on Ebay or sell it to Amazon and get store credit. You make so much more than via Gamespot

  4. For the record, Harmony of Dissonance has a Creature From the Black Lagoon-style boss.

    It’s just a giant merman…

  5. Easy question – The main character from SMT Nocturne.

    It would be even better if you could find glow in the dark paint for your upper body.

  6. Love all the shitting on a movie nobody on the podcast saw. The Mummy with Tom Cruise was a fine movie and was cool to help establish a new universe. It’s completely different from the Brendan Frasier film and I prefer this new one.

    Damn “shitting on” circle jerks. At least when Brett was around he was generally “it’s fine, not for me” without feeling the need to over the top shit on it (except transformers).

    And it’s been a while so my Breath of the Wild is overrated comment too. Shit economy, collectathon to end all collectathon, shit inventory management, no cook book for potions, no dungeons, lackluster story, and same enemies. And yes, I’ve played it a lot but never finished it and have no desire to ever go back in and finish it. Not saying it’s a bad game, more 8/10 than the 12/10 people on the internet act like it is. Maybe if it was your first ever open world game then yeah but otherwise it isn’t as impressive as its competitors.

  7. QotW: Professor Birch from Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. I already match the look about 90 percent and all I’d have to get my hands on that I don’t already have are a lab coat and a pair of Birkenstocks.

  8. I love the episode title. It’s incredibly fucking bizarre that the Mummy game exists, and actually managed to come out. I didn’t see the movie, but I do think the Universal Monsters would be a cool shared universe that deserves to exist, IF THEY’D PUT SOME DAMN EFFORT INTO IT.

    I really wish I had a Switch right about now with the Mario Odyssey talk taking over the interwebs, but alas I’ll be without one til at least the end of the year.

  9. QotW: If I had infinite money I would build mega man and place my consciousness in him and I would be a cyborg and start replacing the earth in my image.

    Wait, was this world domination plans or Halloween plans?

  10. QOTW: I would dress up as Captain Falcon, I need the infinite money not for the costume, but to bankroll a Fzero game for the Switch so people know I am not a Speed Racer villain.

  11. Question of the week.. I think if money was no object .The only acceptable costume would have to be Lucifer from Donte’s Inferno. The costume would be a full 1 to 1 scale with working dick physics. I’d assume I’d just sit in the costume like a mech pilot.

  12. QotW: I would dress up as Poison from Final Fight if money wasn’t an issue. Sure the costume is cheap as hell but the trainers, specialty diet, and numerous surgeries (and pink hair dye) would add up. Simultaneously one of the cheapest costumes but most expensive to do well.

  13. Loved playing as a Mummy in Metal Slug, pretty darn cool until you realize you can’t use a Heavy Machine Gun, and can’t shoot the giant robot boss.

    If I had enough money in the world, I’d cosplay as JIn Saotome from the Capcom video game Cyberbots Full Metal Madness. I could use the money to buff myself up to fit in that tight suit he wears like any movie star, and then go to down in a wicked awesome and expensive fighting robot. Simplistic choice compared to the pain and anguish of being a Bionic Commando, which would require people to chop off your arm only to replace it with a robot one.

  14. Quick story to explain my idea, as it’s differs just a bit…
    In 2004, after going to conventions for a few years, I decided I was gonna start cosplaying. My friends and I were going to cosplay the One Piece crew, with me as Luffy. However I knew there would be a lot of Luffy cosplayers, so I wanted to do something a little different. At this time, 2 other things were going on…
    1. the FoxBox cartoon block began to air the infamous dubbed and heavily censored One Piece
    2. the infamous WWE Triple H run between 2003/2004.
    Thus we had came up with the “Dub Piece” faction. We were in full representation of the awful american dub, and even cutting shoot promos about how “you don’t make the big bucks in fansubs!” My friend even made me a “FoxBox Championship” title to carry around (which I actually got signed by Capt. Lou Albano!). We had a pretty great reception among fellow One Piece fans, and even a few dirty looks from others. It was a lot of fun!

    So as to the question, if money is no issue, I would bring back THAT One Piece dub back on tv so the cosplay can be relevant again!

  15. If I had unlimited cash and was in perfect health, Scorpion from Mortal Kombat (specifically the Mortal Kombat X costume). Simply put, Scorpion is the coolest video game character for me and I would look totally badass if I can be a perfect representation of him from MKX. Plus, the ability to launch a spear and shout “GET OVER HERE” would be the greatest accessory for a Halloween costume ever.

  16. QOTW: With infinite money, I’d cosplay as a hunter from Bloodborne. I’d probably go with the traditional hunter look from the game cover or Eileen the Crow’s outfit. While it will take a chunk of cash to make detailed outfits, most of the money will go to making the trick weapons. I’d have the standard Saw Cleaver, a Whirligig Saw that actually spins and the Tonitrus that can actually discharge lightning.

    Also, a full working outfit of Mergo’s Wet Nurse would also be bad ass.
