The same can probably be said about the movie… The world isn’t ready for fully 3D actors.
“Grey Guy Wins!” classic.
Reminds me of Toribash.
Humorous, although I wonder if credit was given to the creator of Sumotori Dreams. I imagine that the majority of the people who watched that clip on the show itself probably thought that the “silly video game fighting” footage was put together by the show’s graphic effects team.
Conan is my hero.
>>>although I wonder if credit was given to the creator of Sumotori
credit was already given to Conan instead of his writers
So what’s supposed to be going on in this video. All I’m seeing is a big, black square. :( Is the video from Hulu or some other site that blocks non-US residents? ;_;
Same as DoujinGamer. Big, black square.
Conan’s graphic department is delightfully nerdy; I wouldn’t be surprised if someone followed the indie game scene around there. They did include a Segata Sanshiro commercial in one bit, after all.
Awesome, but kinda sucks that the still they chose for the video sorta spoils the joke.
was that papyrus? it was a good papyrus call!
To whoever bitched about Conan getting credit instead of his writes- Conan is way funnier than his writes. The show had a golden age during the writer’s strike.
I find it amusing that the logic in sumitori dreams for keeping the players standing is likely more complex that anything in the entire avatar game…
>>>The show had a golden age during the writerâ€™s strike
it just proves that unsyndicated writers are funnier
Weird, I popped by on my laptop, and now it works just fine. Anywho, funny stuff. “No refunds”!
I think Sumotori Dreams has made me laugh more than any other game ever.
I get the joke, but what’s real funny is that SD would probably kick the Avatar game any day.
i’ve never laughed harder than the day i discovered sumotori dreams.
On a side note…Is Conan standing in front of the first level of Mario Bros 3?
(out of sync video though)
For everyone who is just staring at a black box. You have to deactivate your AdBlocker :)
shoo, it’s advertising.
He’s a step ahead of you.
LOL, more proof that movie tie-ins aren’t game worthy (alright, most movie tie-ins aren’t game worthy, not all). Great idea for a game/movie director “Diss” though.
“I get the joke, but whatâ€™s real funny is that SD would probably kick the Avatar game any day.”
Or at least stumble into it until it fell off the platform
That was awesome!
It reminded me why Conan was so funny to begin with. I kind of stopped watching since he moved to his new slot…
Ha ha ha. I used to play Sumotori Dreams in C++ class, and everyone sitting behind me would very quickly get distracted by the game and get a good laugh out of it. TIGSouce.com must deserve a little credit, here.
I fuck how I lol’d.
I really do hope Peter got some credit somewhere. SD is fantastically hilarious, and any praise should be directed straight to him.
Oh wow. I thought I was just playing too much wii or something.
Sumotori always cracks me up. It’s a shame they didn’t show more.
Yeah, it’s a shame he didn’t get credit. I hope they don’t think Conan actually spent hours making that. =__=
I bet my ass Conan’s writers hang out at Reddit. First, Reddit gets a post about Sumotori Dreams. 2 days later, this shows up on Conan.
That’s a funny volume slider, just when you are about to move it, it disappears.
@Foppy: Yeah, they expect you give up right after that and just listen at full volume. ;)
Funny video though. Seems NBC’s got a healthy amount of humor after all. :p
Also, not so sure, but I think Avatar the Game does a lot of things very good (Halo-style that is).
I remember playing SD with my friends and laughing non-stop… but SD is a nerd joke. If you show it to random people, they won’t appreciate the effort it takes to just make something stand up like that in two feet.
