Pick A Power-Up Empty
PostSubject: Pick A Power-Up   Pick A Power-Up EmptyWed 8 Jan 2014 - 19:53

Silly thread, inspired by CVG's Facebook page. If you could use a videogame power-up (Mario, Smash, Kirby, Zelda masks etc. etc.) while in...
(a) your commute into work;
(b) your workplace, your last workplace or your place of study;
(c) your local club/pub,
which would it be? (Assume a fairly liberal police force.)

My answers:
(a) I walk, so it'd either be an Ice Flower or (if the Flower doesn't instantly improve my real-life skating skills a hundredfold) the Bunny Hood.
(b) Double Cherries, natch. Have my clones do the work so I don't have to.
(c) Rainbow Star. Not only would I be a light show all on my own, not only would whatever rubbish music is playing be replaced by "dee dee dee de-dee dee dee diddle dee", but anyone who tried to intrude on my personal space would find themselves flung away and quite possibly turned into money!

a) The Bunny Hood, so my walk to uni would be halved. I live quite far out from my uni.

b) The Elder Scrolls ability of merely opening a book to absorb its knowledge. That'd come in right handy on a lit degree.

c) The spirit of Eddy Gordo. Not only would my dance moves be unreal, if any prick wants to square up he'd find himself in trouble. Capoeira!

a) Stealing J-Mo's idea, the bunny hood. I wouldn't half my walk time though;; I'd just deliberately walk twice as far. The walk between home and work helps me "switch modes".
b) Darksiders II's split-yourself-into-three-majig. Actually, the upgrade for the Portal-Gun-clone that lets you go back into the past, so I can remember what I was doing a week ago.
c) Elegy of Emptiness: So I could pretend to socialise, but actually be at home playing Zelda.

A) The blue shell from MK as I drive
B) Cloaking device off SSBM (Thanks Balla) So I can do what he said just hide from all the stupid people I work / deal with
C) Kirby's star so when I want out I can just crash through the roof and go

That's hilarious but sad at the same time.  Laughing

Cloaking device off SSBM? So that you can (a) sneak up behind intruders and (b) hide from your stupid colleague?

Surely the clocking is a Item not a power up / ability


My answers:
(a) What ever Pit uses to fly, so I can fly to work
(b) Dhalsim ability to stretc, all I can think off
(c) Duke Nukem's People skills especially with the ladies

If Mario's star counts (and it does), so does the cloaking device. Maybe "item" would have been better, but I think most people have understood the gist. This is why examples are great!

Actually, I've thought of a better one, for all three: the phone number which gets rid of your wanted level in GTA.

If we can have item's I would like the Arwing II to fly to work also, Dr Ock arms so I can do lots of things at once, Still having Duke Nukem away with the ladies.

A) I live within five minutes walking distance of work and don't really need any powering up, so I'd just take a standard red mushroom from Mario. I hate being short...
B) The hammer from the original Donkey Kong, so I can smash customers' stupid, ignorant, rude fucking heads in.
C) Phi from Skyward Sword. I'd love to carry the sword of evil's bane around with me, and I could do with a patronising fairy/ghost/thing to talk me out of shit.

A) A portal gun, just so its easier to return home.

B) Max payne bullet time, would be handy for any data entry that needs done.

C) Kirby's standard absorb power to drink lots & deal with any annoying people.

It's even more realistic than I could've imagined!
