Ok this is take two because my last attempt to post this god borked all the way up. The editor here is... not so great for posting lots of images.

ANYWAYS. I had to do this after seeing the Puyo Puyo Tetris Quick Look. Too great of an idea to pass up. So here's the Giant Bomb crew as Puyo Puyo Tetris characters! You can check out my reply to this post to see some background on the names, which an extra extra special shoutout goes to @pepsiman for helping me with the translation on these. They wouldn't be nearly as funny (or accurate) if it wasn't for him. Enjoy!!

Wow, I have no idea what that text is at the bottom but if I edit anything it'll probably break again so w/e. If a mod wants to try and format it better then please do, by all means.

Some notes I wanted to add on the names. Again, shout out to @pepsiman for helping me translate these into actual jokes and not just my poor-ass direct translations.

  • Dr. Tracksuit - His name is actually written as "Tracksuit-hakase", the honorific given in a more professor/scholar-like role. Essentially "Tracksuit, PhD." Though it's inaccurate, (the correct translation being "Tracksuit-sensei") we both thought it was way funnier to imply he actually has some form of professionalism to his... craft.
  • Peegbot - Peegs.
  • Captain Fuzzy - Literally "Captain Fuwafuwa", the latter half of the name is made to emphasize the cute/fuzzy nature of alpaca Drew. Alpacas!
  • The Wolf - Awooo!
  • Small Business-san - Almost went with "Shoukigyou Man" as if he were some kind of superhero, but the idea of someone actually being referred to as "Small Business-san" is just too funny not to use.
  • Damerica - I had originally written this as Dan-merica but as Pepsiman cleverly pointed out, dropping the "ン" would give 'Damerika', the perfect word play. "Dame" is commonly used as a means of saying "stop" in a chastising, disapprovingly questioning way, i.e.: Something you'd probably say to Dan a lot.
  • A-Striker - There's no real cleverness to this, I just think the way you pronounce Jason's name is rad as fuck and it makes for the best character name if phonetically written.

Good work here, they're all fantastic.

Tried to fix the blog. Got rid of the weird string at the bottom, but that first image ain't playing ball (though you can see it just fine by clicking on it). Man, lemme tell you a few things about weird image bugs on this site.

@aurahack: These are absolutely beautiful. Top-notch work, duder! I want to hug them all.

Could I annoy you to make a wallpaper out of these lovelies? Because I want this stuff in my face always and forever.

Also, it'll be a crime against nature if these don't end up on Giant Bomb's walls somewhere.

WHERE IS THE MODERATOR SEAL OF APPROVAL

I love the Japanese too. I caught a couple most of the wordplays, but I didn't catch Dan's the first time around. These are soooo amazing.

My only wish is for Suketoudara to get incorporated in someway. The fish always wins.

Amazing stuff Aurahack. I don't know what else to say.

Well maybe except that you are clearly confusing Mr Jeffrey Gerstmann with his client, Dr. Tracksuit.

@robbparris: that one's my favorite too! :D

@grace_omega: This is my favorite comment.

@hassun: Oh no, not at all. Jeff's gamertag is simply there as he is responsible for Dr. Tracksuit's actions on the Puyopuyo court.

@starvinggamer: Thank you. :D

@giant_frying_pan: I dunno I didn't figure this was really on-topic to anything, haha.

@hammondoftexas: Thank you :D

@fattony12000: ay ay ay

@topsteer: alpacas too OP

@kevinwalsh: Ahhh thank you! I'm quite pleased with how they turned out, too. :>

@amyggen: you're great!

@quid_pro_bono: Thank you :'D

@getz: long answer: i've been dealing with some very difficult personal issues and art is a wonderful way to escape it all. short answer: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
