Fan Vids: Other Places - São Paulo Edition, Iconic Film Remakes, Musical Horn Fun & More
The latest batch of auspicious and audacious fan created videos includes a journey back to the sun soaked urban horizon of São Paulo in Max Payne 3, awesomely inspired movie and television videos making the rounds, the use of Los Santos Customs as an impromptu music studio of sorts and more.
We've been dazzled before by ultrabrilliant's "Other Places" video series (check out Grand Theft Auto V's San Andreas here). In this video, he takes a stroll down through the bullet-ridden back alleys and winding thoroughfares of Max Payne's 3's rendition of São Paulo, Brazil. From the stark poverty of the favelas in Nova Esperança, to the seedy aftermath of a gunfight in the O Paliaca Strip Club, enjoy a quiet moment alone with the scenery and see the vast economic contrast therein on the neon soaked dance floors and opulent modern interiors of places like Club Moderno, the Branco residence and the glaring floodlights of the Galatians Stadium.
Few cinematic chase scenes are as memorable and iconic as John Connor's desperate dirt bike flight from the menacing and seemingly indestructible T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. From his narrow parking garage escape to the harrowing semi-truck chase through the storm drain, a large portion of the film's original shots and camera angles are recaptured faithfully in this heart-pumping presentation. We hope film editor and director John Chapman and the Legendary Gaming family will "be back" with something clever like this again sometime in the near future.
In an ode to Quentin Tarantino's two-volume epic, Aegis Legion's accomplished film editor and director takes on the persona of The Bride to unleash a reign of death and dismemberment. Subbing in the Heavy Sniper rifle for the Hattori Hanzō katana and a powerful Combat MG that would surely give the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique a run for its money, we see all of El_Serpe's enemies get crossed off the "Death List Five".
The addition of the Do Re Mi Car Horn Scale to Los Santos Customs in the High Life Update has generated some fantastic musical creations, including this inspired rendition of one of AC/DC's classic rock anthems. Creator LUKENBACKER lays out a great arrangement here and funnels in a few audio tweaks to really bring it home.
MrVeyron finds himself in great company here - joined by the some of the Stunting Community's finest, with the likes of BMX maestro ErasableNinja, Le Kops stunter Feym, handlebar hardliner Mr. Toast, FantasticalGamer, Trexpass and scene veteran NightMare all contributing to this fantastic tapestry of motorbike and Super Class vehicle stunts. In a few cases, we also see no vehicle at all being used as these daredevils opt to soar through the sky with finesse and grace.
