Virtual Reality: Episode 01, Zelda

Two broke collage kids recreate some of the average actions of their favorite video game characters. Limited man power, funds, resources, and lack of artistic ability come together to create a train wreck piece of programming distinctly Canadian, and difficult to look away from.

Putting aside the fact that you don't have the best equipment for editing and your demonstration pictures are by no stretch of imagination fantastic, this was awesome.

It's very original and I'm always willing to see something as entertaining as this, if you're willing to keep taking the pain of experimenting...

Did you seriously stand there firing flares at a piece of freakin' glass in your friend's hand? So many things could have gone wrong with that...

Also, please do not kill a turtle!

Most original idea I've seen so far, though it's a shame about the equipment. You guys would be great to watch, though I don't see how you'll be able to do much more.
But I wish ye the best of luck, anyway!

Well, the idea for longevity is that we're going to tackle a different game each episode. So the next one would be Mario, then stuff like metal gear solid and the like. We're throwing different ideas around thinking of ways we can make sure it won't get stale, but if we get picked up we'd definitely appreciate your feedback.

Oh, and Punk, thanks for the info. I had no idea how much footage we could actually take from the source material without getting sued, hence the dog in the Link costume...

Neat idea. Like Jackass, and Mythbusters rolled into one through video games! I like this one better than Dorian and Troll Cartoon. A+ for Balls to do those stunts.

I like the concept, but your execution scares me. I can't see this going anywhere that is safe. The

idea is cool and all, but shooting flares at your buddy while he holds a homemade shield to his face is frightening. I was cringing during that entire sequence (well, except for the "pew pew pew," that was funny).

I'm feeling somewhat guilty for voting for you, considering that it'll probably mean that you'll continue to do dangerous things for my viewing pleasure. Nevertheless, hilarious stuff.

I love Mythbusters. It's a great show. However, they do a really great job about explaining what the Scientific Process they used, the process to make it, and how they could prove it. At the end of the show, they completely reveal their results and give a final basis, Busted, Plausible or Confirmed.

It's a good formula. Needless to say, they seem to have a big hefty limit on how much money they can use to confirm a Myth.

Unfortunately, the Gaming Mythbusters you have come up with fails in a few of the finer points of Mythbusters. Also, fixed Camera Angles for every shot is cool, in some aspects, but you really need to have a Cameraman. You both don't need to be in-frame the entire time.

Thanks, but no thanks.

You've got my vote for the flare/shield part. Well done guys :) Just make sure this doesn't turn into a video Jackass/La Bam.

Jackass for nerds, brilliant.
Go watch Mega64. They were the OG Jackass for gamers. I'd post a link for the quote but I'm on my PS3.

Despite the low budget quality and the fact that you guys didn't take it quite seriously, I laughed a lot! This series could have a lot of pontential in terms of exploring games to imitate. If you guys actually win I sure hope you can get better editing.

I second this, I seriously hope you guys don't actually hurt any turtles. That would instantly turn us all off, seeing as how we are all gamers seeing a real turtle get stomped would break our hearts and make us hate you.

well look on the bright side, if they make more of these there's a chance they'll win a Darwin award.

For those of you who don't know what a Darwin award is, look them up as they are hilarious in a smug sort of way.
