Holy shit, I never noticed that! Just the idea of Al Pacino as a space marine is cracking me up, gunning down orcs with coke all over his face while listening to pumping Hi-NRG music. Dic salve ad meus amicus!

 

The guy on the right must have been copied from somewhere too.

It looks like they pasted his Godfather pt III haircut on there as well.

And Fei Long. And Law in Tekken. And, and..

 

 

 

But when it comes to Jackie Chan, they avoid the likeness and just take the moves. Drunken Master is very popular...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are other videos on YouTube with similar comparisons of the moves that Tekken took from Jet Li in Fist of Legend, Donnie Yen in Ip Man, etc.

Back on the gin but this is the one I meant.  Someone on here a while back posted this and a few others along with the pictures they were literally traced from.  Axel is clearly Jean Claude Van Damme and that's Arnie as the red face.  I'd look for the others, but gin.

That's, uh, kind of missing the point of the thread.

 

But it did remind me of all the definitely unauthorised celeb cameos in Horace, including Larry David, John Cleese, Richard Nixon, Bill and Ted, Pat Butcher, Billy Mitchell and Reg Hollis from The Bill.

I'm not seeing the Bob Hoskins one. Looks more like Buddy Hackett being replaced by Kryten.

It’s so clearly Donald Pleasance circa Escape from New York, not Bob Hoskins.

Some brilliant ones there. Han Solo with a moustache is beautiful.

The size of the hands on the fella on the right. He’s done well to make detective and operate a firearm with such a natural impairment.

Cool af. I still have a lust to own a 928 one day purely because of this game. 

 

Currently contemplating buying a print of the Wakelin artwork for the Ocean Speccy conversion:

I prefer the original though.
