Wonder how the Elder Scrolls games compare? Why not experience the differences through the medium of Steve Oedekerk’s Kung Pow! Enter the Fist?
No, you’re not still hung over, this is an actual thing and it’s absolutely amazing. YouTuber My Two Pence is mashing up footage from the Kung-Fu parody with in-game action from Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim to illustrate how radically certain mechanics vary between games.
If you’ve never watched Kung Pow, you can catch it on Amazon Prime right now – you won’t regret it. Oedekerk directed, produced, wrote and starred in the movie, which takes footage from the 1976 film Tiger & Crane Fists and edits other actors, Oedekerk included, in.
The YouTube videos aren’t quite as seamless, but we can’t argue with My Two Pence’s conclusion that Skyrim’s jumping is as ineffectual as Kung Pow’s Wimp Lo, compared to jumping in Morrowind. We also laughed ourselves silly at the HE JUST LEFT! WITH NUTS! guy turning out to be a member of.. well, you’ll have to watch for yourself.
You can catch the rest of these videos, and subscribe if you’re sufficiently tickled, on My Two Pence’s YouTube page.
