Nintendo Vs Sega Party 7th August, London: A Costume Guide

Posted in Uncategorized by bandsxbass on July 30, 2009

nintendo-vs-sega-vwersion-4So we’ve had news of some great outfits for the Nintendo Vs Sega Party so far – a Chun Li and Blanca couple (Street Fighter II), James Bond (Goldeneye) and Rayden (Mortal Kombat) have all been confirmed.

There is also now the fantastic prize of a MEGA DRIVE CONSOLE for the best costume! This will be announced by the Popes Of Chillitown after their set.

For those of you not so familiar with Sega and Nintendo, don’t worry – you can still dress up! Below are some classic Sega and Nintendo games,  with suggestions for costumes – we can’t all be Mario you know!

Luckily SEGA totally cashed in on the sport/film video game market and made a game for pretty much every big action film of the 90s!

If you need a good fancy dress shop in Camden, there’s a place callled Escapade down the road from the Dublin Castle. Click here.


Shinobi was a real Sega classic and is fndly remembered.

COSTUME – Dress as a ninja – easy! Black cloth, armbands, aand face mask covering your face up to your nose…

Moonwalker on the SEGA Genesis

Posted in Uncategorized by bandsxbass on July 6, 2009

I was not at all aware of this game back in the day but it looks ace! It’s perhaps a bit worrying that you have to search for kids in cupboards who follow you around and shout ‘MICHAEL! MICHAEL!’.

My favourite bit is the end where your special move is to make all the enemies dance to Smooth Criminal then they all die. Either that or the bit where Bubbles jumps on your head and shoots people.

Amazing! I wonder what a Michael Jackson game on the Nintendo Wii would involve?

I have also just beeen sent a version of this game. Yes! You can play Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker  here

Might wanna spread them newsletters out a bit Vice/Platform!

Posted in Uncategorized by bandsxbass on July 2, 2009

Now it’s quite clear that the two magazines are pretty similar.  Platform probably pips Vice to the post with the online, whereas Vice is abetter physical read in my opinions. Nothing can beat the Do’s and Don’ts.

Both send you newsletters about their wacky adventures, and it was only when I got their newsletters back to back that  it truly clicked how similar they are! MAKE YOUR CHOICE! Are you Platform or Vice?
