Grand Theft Auto: The Office Crossover Box Art Is Too Perfect

0

Some fan-made box art featuring a crossover between Grand Theft Auto and The Office is circulating the internet and it’s too perfect. After the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 and the ever-popular Grand Theft Auto Online, Rockstar’s next game has been confirmed to be Grand Theft Auto 6, but, contrary to a number of fan theories and rumors on the subject, there's no telling when it will be announced or released.

Despite facing some studio problems – on which it has been working – Rockstar is committed to continuing the production and evolution of their most popular franchise. While the Red Dead and GTA developer’s fans tend to play titles belonging to both franchises, there is still a bit of debate as to whether Grand Theft Auto V or Red Dead Redemption 2 is the studio’s best game to date. Regardless, the company is no stranger to intriguing content that also borders on the mysterious and inexplicable, but it's doubtful they will ever engage in such a drastic crossover as the one presented below.

With the recent buzz regarding the next Grand Theft Auto title, one fan of the franchise took to Reddit and posted a box art crossover between GTA and the beloved television series The Office. The GTA-themed art style showcases characters from the The Office and plasters their faces in the same comic-styled pattern native to Rockstar’s famous third-person shooter franchise. Moreover, the box art’s creator, who goes by the Reddit handle u/mayboss, aptly named the fake game Grand Theft Office: Scranton after the television show’s setting. Check it out here:

U/mayboss' fan-made box art has received plethora of attention, with many commenters expressing their opinion that playing Creed, one of the most eccentric characters in The Office, in a GTA setting would be astounding. One user commented, “It would be worth it to see where Creed wakes up every morning,” referencing the number of strange locations players would find Trevor in during Grand Theft Auto V. Fans have already begun naming potential DLC for the crossover, such as Scranton Strangler DLC for $99.

Grand Theft Auto 6 should be a gaming goliath when it’s finally released, if the success of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 are any indication. Rockstar is a company that is unapologetic for implementing content that many would find offensive, which is ironically one of the reasons so many players enjoy their content; it’s raw, gritty, and in some cases can provide a stress release and outlet for those struggling to come to grips with anger. Many of the characters in The Office also had issues with morality and anger, and although not including Prison Mike on the above Grand Theft Auto crossover art seems like a little bit of a miscalculation, it's still a pretty perfect combination.

Marvel & DC Honor Real-Life Heroes For National Superhero Day

0

National Superhero Day has come round once again, but instead of showcasing everyone's favorite fictional superheroes, some of the biggest publishers and comic book figures are using the occasion to celebrate real-life heroes braving a different kind of threat.

Essential workers are putting their lives on the line in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, and tributes on Twitter have been pouring in to show appreciation for their hard work. The Justice League and the Avengers may be defenders of the innocent on the page, but in the real world, they're standing aside to let everyday heroes take the spotlight.

National Superhero Day was created by Marvel back in 1995 as a way for fans to celebrate their favorite characters, but this year they are one of many companies using the day to honor real life warriors instead. To mark the occasion, the company's official Twitter shared a striking image of front-line workers in superhero poses by artist Mike Hawthorne and Edgar Delgado.

The Twitter account for the late Stan Lee also made a contribution, reminding fans of the comic figure's views on everyday people transformed into something greater, and that "Of the many lessons Stan Lee imparted upon us, one of the most powerful was that superheroes come in all different forms - and they don't have to wear capes."

Besides Marvel, other companies across a wide range of industries are paying tribute to healthcare and other essential workers across the globe. A fantastic flipbook animation by Howard Lee (shared by 9gag) also re-imagined frontline caregivers and essential workers as famous superheroes, while DC Comics thanked the heroes of the world through two separate videos on their DC Universe Twitter account. One sending thanks from the heroes themselves, and another from writer Brian Michael Bendis offering personal thanks to the caregivers, after making headlines during the pandemic as one of the main names behind the #Creators4Comics campaign that has been raising money for struggling comic book stores.

The thanks continue, whether offered straight from the Power Rangers themselves, or Sports channel ESPN's touching video tribute to essential workers that leaves viewers with tears in their eyes. National Superhero Day is not the first time that both Marvel and DC have paid tribute to the superstars on the front line. Marvel recently released a powerful piece of art by drawn by Joe Quesada and colored by Richard Isanove featuring a healthcare worker in a Captain America mask. The trend also began with DC Comics, sharing an image of the Justice League with essential employees stating that "The world is filled with heroes." A world full of real-life heroes is exactly what's needed, to offer a glimmer of hope on the other side of the global pandemic.

Micrashell Is The Virus-Proof Suit Designed For Nightlife Partying

0

Coronavirus is resulting in many changes to the way society works, and it is likely that will continue long after the pandemic is over. Which is why products like the futuristic Microshell party suit is now a plausible reality.

The greatest change to the way people live right now is social distancing. While the lockdown orders that are in place in different countries naturally lead to social distancing, as cities and countries gradually start to reopen again, the emphasis will be on the continuation of social distancing guidelines. Although feasible in restaurants that opt to reduce covers and seat people further apart, nightlife and live events are less easy to regulate. That is, unless you are wearing a Micrashell party suit.

From Production Club, the new suit looks to be the answer no one wants to a question that needs to be asked. It is touted as a virus-proof suit, that in theory, allows the wearer to attend even the busiest of venues without fear of breaching social distancing guidelines. In fact, beyond its expected features - such as an air filtration system with N95 filter - it even comes with a number of improvements to ensure a strangely, close-to-reality experience, including personal speakers and LED lights, as well as a canister-based “supply system.” The latter of which simply means the wearer can hook up drinks (or their vape) and consume them without removing the suit. Most of the suit’s “features'' are controlled by a smartphone app, with the phone also getting its own pouch with data and power support.

Although the suit might seem like overkill for any other time, 2020 is not like most times, and solutions like this do need to be considered if some sense of normality is to resume. What is clear, is that while some places of business will reopen with changes designed to limit the spread of the virus, others will have to remain closed unless a viable close contact solution is found. That’s what makes this particular suit an actual, and viable solution, in spite of how over-the-top it appears on first glance.

While clubs and venues could probably reopen sooner if they were to adopt the same changes as restaurants, they are totally different markets. These venues thrive on, and often only survive due to the atmosphere created by the attendees, and it stands to reason that a reduced capacity venue won't offer that same experience. Even with the obvious need for more personal protection at these events, the question then becomes what is the likelihood of people actually wearing such suits? With the answer probably being "no" from most people at first, unless they are willing to wear something similar, it remains to be seen if large public events or late-night entertainment venues can return to anything near what they were, before a vaccine is found. Again, although seeming extreme, a suit like this is a solution and for those wondering, the Micrashell party suit adopts a “top only” design. This makes it possible for wearers to easily go to the toilet and/or engage in other activities, while still ensuring they are not “exposed to respiratory risks” associated with coronavirus.
