looked spot on to the capcom arcade game "gun smoke".

I can dig all of these. I wish they were real as they would be just great fun to play. The halo meets contra...I thought that when i saw the killzone shot at first.

Batman, MGS4, SSBM and Pikmin looked like they'd still be amazing in retro form

I really want to play SSBB and LittleBigPlanet in that style. Looks awesome.

Cool stuff.

The Brutal Legend one made me laugh ;)

FinaLXiii1403d ago

wow Brutal Legend actually would kickass with that 2D style the 3D makes it look goofy.

I would definitely play most of them
