Gymkata is karate-kicking it’s way through DVD Decision 2006!

I'm happy to report that it looks as though our voices have been heard, for Gymkata has been in the lead of Amazon's DVD Decision 2006 for the past week. It just got bumped down to #2, but as long as it stays in the top 10, it WILL be released on DVD! The decision isn't over until the end of June though, so if you haven't voted yet, please click here and vote for Gymkata to help ensure our victory!

Go-Go-Gadget DVD set!

Also, I just wanted to give you a reminder that we're currently holding a big Inspector Gadget giveaway contest for the new 4-disc DVD set that contains the first 22 episodes of the original show! All you have to do for a chance to win it is to come up with a handy new gadget for the Inspector to use. And best of all, you don't need to be an artist to do it. In case you're unable to draw him from scratch, we've included some graphics of Inspector Gadget that you can put your new gadget on top of. The contest ends on July 15th, so get those entries in! (and yes, you can enter as many times as you like)

Before I go, I gotta share some PickleMan pics that Brendan Quantick just sent me:

PickleMan in City of Heroes! PickleMan in City of Heroes!

PickleMan in City of Heroes! PickleMan in City of Heroes!
(click any of the pics to enlarge)

Brendan created PickleMan using the City of Heroes engine and character creator. Pretty spiffy eh? Even though he was unable to replicate the cape, I particularly like how he used the pirate hat to make the pickle hat. Too bad it's not some kind of downloadable skin that everybody who owns the game can use it. If you know of a way to do this, however, by all means let me know!

By the way, keep an eye on the site early next week... there's a surprise piece going up online that I'm sure none of you would've expected! Are you scared yet?

I've seen bootlegs of Gymkata on DVD for 20 bucks once, sitting convieniently next to the Star Wars Holiday Special...



Oogie boogie boogie.

Yes rog I'm scared the whole fucking world is scared

I am excited at the prospect of having Gymkata come to the DVD format, but I would be remissed if I didn't mention that it is a god damn disgrace that the cinematic masterpiece that is "Split Second" has yet to be released on DVD(at least in the US). I go to bed each night praying not for world peace and the well being of my loved ones, but for the inept fucktards that decide which movies become DVD's to wake up. Whats it gonna take? The people have spoken.

OMG -RoG-,
Now thanks to the big surprise that's coming up, I'M NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO SLEEP! Give us a hint! I AM SCARED! HAPPY PLACE! HAPPY PLACE!


-RoG- (Guest) on 06/24/2006 8:12 pm

It's not a huge surprise (in case you guys are expecting the PickleMan game, that's not what it is heheh). It is however, something I'm sure you'll get a kick out of. It'll be up on the site this Monday for sure!

Not to worry Rog, in City of Heroes anyone can get a cape at level 20. So Pickleman won't be capeless for long.


Darnin (Guest) on 06/25/2006 12:00 pm

God...I wish I had money...But still, I think I may have something of an idea of what it might be...


-RoG- (Guest) on 06/26/2006 3:27 am

The wait is over and the surprise is now up! OMGOMGOMG!


AngryHydralisk (Guest) on 06/26/2006 8:09 am

...And that surprise was fucking hilarious. Loved the 80s actions references and the EX-TREEEEEEEEEEME ending!


Johnboy (Guest) on 06/26/2006 9:47 am

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Segal!!! (Posters note: those very same eyes reached critical mass and exploded soon after viewing the extremeness of Segal's energy drink taste test. Hopefully some kindly seeing eye dog or helper midget will direct me to a store so that I may purchase this sweet Shang-ri-La in a can.



Darnin (Guest) on 06/26/2006 5:16 pm

I figured it would be something like this. Didn't expect something so X-TREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! though.


Steve (Guest) on 06/27/2006 12:44 pm

That pickle hat converts nicely to CG. I was concerned it'd turn out looking like a green pirate hat, but there you have it.


Mario (Guest) on 06/27/2006 2:40 pm

It is not that X-TREME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But Cool.


-RoG- (Guest) on 06/27/2006 6:09 pm

Glad you're all enjoying the EXTREEEEEEEME feature. Thanks for the compliments. It really was fun acting out all that stuff in the martial arts uniforms. It's a bitch editing all that stuff in Photoshop afterwards though, lemme tell ya! Er I mean, no editing was required... Steven Seagal really did appear before us and shoot lightning from his eyes to give us a taste of his "Lightning Bolt" energy drinks.

On a side note, they're supposed to release a root beer flavor, but considering how bad the Cherry Charge and Asian Experience flavors were, I doubt this stuff will be on the market for too long.


Johnboy (Guest) on 06/28/2006 5:01 pm

Yeah, I figured it might never make it to any stores around me, thats why I bought a whole case of the stuff from Amazon. I can't wait to have a Segal movie/lightning bolt festival with my friends..... I'm expecting about the same result as Jonestown.


AngryHydralisk (Guest) on 06/28/2006 5:16 pm

I never liked energy drinks anyways. They all taste EXACTLY the same (a nasty sour/bitter taste).


Prince Frieza (Guest) on 06/29/2006 3:52 am

I spit on your Inspector Gadget giveaway. However, if it was a Gymkata giveaway or even a Bulletproof giveway(the Bulletproof with Gary Busey), I would surrender all my powers and abilities.


kayla (Guest) on 07/12/2006 10:59 pm

Hmm.. the blue boots have to go.. And when i get my COH account re-activated i am SOO making a Pickleman. Can i have permission to name him " The Mighty -ROG-"????


Brendan/Nurdbot (Guest) on 12/18/2006 9:06 am

Hi -RoG-, It's the guy who created Pickleman for COH. I've just come to tell you that they are doing several 14 day free trials for both American and European servers, to get a serial key open the site in the URL and look on the left bit for the serial key blurb. You may have to register for this site but it looks all free and legit.

PS: Get Protoclown in and use TeamSpeak for double the fun.
