HONK! Someone Modded The Goose Into Resident Evil 2

The goose, star of the mega-popular Untitled Goose Game, is now ready to honk and annoy the stars of Resident Evil 2. Thanks to talented modder Alister, the goose is on the loose in Raccoon City. God help us all.

The mod is not yet finished, but the final version will include honks. Also, you might have noticed that the goose is wearing Mr. X’s famous fedora. According to the modder, this won’t be changed when the mod is finished.

“He’s keeping the Fedora because he is just so Fancy like that,” said Alister. I agree. Besides who is going to actually try to take that hat from that giant goose? Not me, that’s for sure.

The goose is not the first strange new character to be added into Resident Evil 2 via modding. Others have included Big Smoke from San Andreas and Thomas The Tank Engine. Poor Claire and Leon. They never know what to expect anymore.

Back To The Future With Only Half-Life Sound Effects Is Wonderful

The sound effects from the original Half-Life are burned into my brain after playing the game nearly every year since it came out back in 1998. So hearing these iconic sounds and voices inserted into famous scenes from classic 80s films creates a weird mix of nostalgia and humor. And surprisingly this mash-up actually works.

YouTuber TheMostUpset first uploaded a scene from Back To The Future featuring Half-Life sound effects, music, and voices a week ago.

It is impressive how TheMostUpset is able to use the somewhat limited sound effect and voice library from Half-Life to perfectly work with this famous scene. Well, except for the dog. Half-Life doesn’t have any dogs barking in it, so instead he uses a Houndeye chirp.

Another famous scene that was dubbed using Half-Life sound effects is the action-packed police station sequence from Terminator. A nice detail is how TheMostUpset adds the loud and shuffling footstep sound effect to characters as they move around. They sync up so well that I almost didn’t notice it.

TheMostUpset has since moved away from adding Half-Life sounds to only classic films and is starting to add the sounds to viral videos and more modern movies. These still work wonderfully, but I do prefer the classic films getting the Half-Life treatment. Something about The Terminator talking in the robotic announcement voice from Black Mesa just feels right.

Original Resident Evil Intro Turned Into An 80s Sitcom

The intro for the original Resident Evil is something special. The cheesy acting, the low production values, and the clothing all combine to create something I still love watching. But one fan decided this video could be improved and made the whole thing into a sitcom intro.

Created by GreyGhost Mike, it works. It really works. Something about the way each character is given an introduction helps sell this as a strange and dark sitcom from the late 80s.

I know rumors of a Resident Evil TV show have floated around the internet for some time now and I can only hope that if it happens the show is half as fun as this intro.

After watching this video I started thinking who I would cast in a Resident Evil sitcom. The zombies are easy, you just grab random comedians and guest stars. But the main cast is trickier.

I’m thinking David Harbour from Stranger Things could be a great Barry Burton. Who would you cast in this totally fictional show I now want to watch?
