MassSpank! Another Spoof DeathSpank Cover from Hothead and EA

Friday, September 17th, 2010

Brad, an uber talented artist we have here at Hothead took some time to pull together another spoof DeathSpank cover. A BIG THANK YOU to Bioware and Electronic Arts for being cool enough to let us mess around with the Mass Effect cover and spankify it. I’ve linked to the super high resolution version of the image below just in case you guys want to make a desktop wallpaper out of the image.

Enjoy!… but please don’t confuse this cover with the REAL cover of DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue that will be magically appearing on PSN (Tuesday the 21st!) and XBLA (Wednesday the 22nd!). Just in case you need reminding, here is the REAL cover for DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue:

DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue Screenshot Bonanza!

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Ok, bonanza might be an exaggeration seeing as I’m only showing you six new screenshots today, but it’s a fun word so I’m going with it.

The release of DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue, the follow-up to the delightfully twisted and fiendishly addictive action RPG, DeathSpank is less then a week away and in anticipation of the greatest release of all time in the history of video games (I know, bold statement. I’m in a mood to exagerate today so I’m going with it as well) we’re releasing some new screenshots today to help whet your appetite for Thongs of Virtue.

Who knew you needed your appetite whetted for thongs?

If you haven’t checked out the other screenshots that have already been released, head on over to our screenshot page to take a look: DeathSpank Thongs of Virtue Screenshots
