Shaq Fu - New photo(n)s!!
« on: May 20, 2009, 10:54:42 PM »
Alright, ladies and gents. The moment you've all been waiting for!

PRESENTING... The Shaq Staq, circa June 30th 2009.


Click for the biggins.



You done good, kids.

To those who have said that they would check the surrounding area for more copies, your help and donations would still be appreciated... B-)

I have spoilered all the previous updates to this post since it is large and cluttery. It's all there though!
[spoiler]
HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey guys who said they would donate money?

You should probably get on the actual money giving thing soon. B-)

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
we won guys!! GOOD JOB. Alert status over. for now. Pledges are, however, still accepted from those who still wish to help this dream flourish but are too lazy to scour the local area for Shaq Fus. 8-)

Pictures will go up whenever the thing arrives.

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
Okay so a Mr. Toxic "the" Machine has brought this to my attention.


Link.

A copy of Shaq Fu signed by two internet famous men. I do believe this would be a worthy addition to the collection. HOWEVER, chances are, this shit is going to get hot, since it involves wacky internet famous mans. There's no way one man could justify paying more than $50 for a copy of Shaq Fu...
... no way that one man could...
So, anyone wanna donate a little bit to owning this piece of bad internet history scribbled on a Shaq Fu cartridge? AJ and I are going to wait until the last day to bid, and will split the costs, if it's not too crazy high up there. Our dear The Machine has offered to throw $40 into the pot, like a true hero. Is anyone else willing to step up to the plate !?
Basically we'll bid up to however high we feel comfortable (taking into account how much it'll cost each of us along with how many donations are offered) and then if we win I'll run around and collect money from people. (through paypal, or through fake birthday cards in the mail, or whatever.) Five dollars, ten dollars, maybe even one dollar. Anything would help!

come on guys you know you want to

-----------------------------------


So.

Last summer, a little after my birthday, a group of friends led by my bro AJ come to pick me up for a night on the town. My ol' pal Joe was supposed to be there, but he was strangely absent. We all pile in the car and head off to our destination.

Upon arriving, there is a noise in the trunk. A ghastly moan.

I go to open up the trunk... and out pops Joe.

With a copy of Shaq Fu for the Sega Genesis.



This would not be the last Shaq Fu I received that night. Throughout the night, Joe would nonchalantly present me with yet MORE copies of this beautiful game at opportune moments. I ended up with 7 by the  time the festivities were over. I was pretty content.

Next time I saw Joe, several more copies came into my possession. Suddenly, 7 Shaq Fus became 9. I thought nothing of it.


Christmas 2008.

please try and endure aj's bad youtube intro. also my bad hair at the time jesus christ

13 Shaq Fus.

Shortly after this, I end up getting a great deal on a Game Gear with a ton of games included. There is.. there is also Shaq Fu in here. 14 Shaq Fus...

Cut to present day. I have 21 copies of Shaq Fu now. Five more are on their way to me through the mail. I have only actually purchased three of these, one by accident.



There is a website out there that promotes the collection and immediate destruction of Shaq Fu. This, frankly, disgusts me. AJ and I are now working to collect and preserve this priceless artifact.


(this sticker was on it when i bought it)

So we are currently working on http://www.saveshaqfu.com . It will have some things relating to the actual game, as well as photos and origins of each Shaq Fu copy in my possession. Probably some other bullshit too.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. Do you have a shitty old game store nearby? Do you happen to own this game already? Do you have a mega boner for drak? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should probably mail me a copy of Shaq Fu or two. Or three. Or four. PM me for mailing information. I am willing to strike a deal with those who do not wish to let a Shaq Fu out of their grasp so easily... but, really now. It's a good cause, isn't it.


tl;dr: pm me if you want to mail me copies of shaq fu


also before anyone asks yes that box under the topmost shaq fu with the guy on it is a shaq fu box. it just.. it just has a photo of rattleman taped to it. the cartridge also bears this photograph.

Priceless my ass! The SNES version SUCKS.
...Not that the Genesis is better but come on the SNES version is like only 60% of the game.

Well, since you went and made a post about it:
A few months ago, while looking for a job, I stopped into a small used games store to apply, and saw a copy there.

That I bought.

With the sole intention of having Rixx give me your address so that I could send it to you.


But now everyone's gonna do it. :[

Rixx also has a copy or two that he was gonna send to you with mine, but now the surprise has been ruined, so expect a couple copies in the mail (with a special surprise) from VAYGUS some time in the near future.

If I had ShaqFu I'd send it to you, because, and this comes from the bottom of my heart, you are my internet hero, Drak.

Rixx already informed me of this today, actually! Which is partially why I decided to make this post. I figure there must be a couple more heroes here willing to donate to the cause. (Your two shaq fus are included in my "five more on the way in the mail," in fact. 8-) ) It's alright, you will be the ORIGINAL INTERNET CONTRIBUTORS.

Yeah this is in the plans. I want to get the site off the ground before I go about panhandling for Shaq Fus from the bigger kids, though.

Alright, just as long as he didn't spoil the special surprise that I have been planning to do since...since you guys won second in the Shinding, actually. I hope to see a video or something of you reacting to it.

Man, I procrastinate far more than anyone else I know.

I never forget about the things I intend to do, but it always takes me ages after I set myself on doing them to actually get around to doing them.

Shaq Flu. As opposed to the Swine Flu.

Er, I mean...you should also hunt down the bonus CD that came with (I think it was) the Genesis version.

You're in luck, Drak.  My local headshop is right beside my vintage games store.  :D
The Golden Guy was upper case, the Golden Guy was in first place
The Golden Guy was holding all the aces
The Golden Guy was in the news, the Golden Guy was blue suede shoes
The Golden Guy was secret rendezvous
The Golden Guy was samurai, the Golden Guy was legal high
The Golden eyes was infinitely white
The Golden Guy was French champagne, the Golden Guy was summer rain
The Golden Guy invented the fast lane
The Golden Guy was easy street sitting in the catbird's seat
The Golden Guy was melt-in-your-mouth meat
The Golden Guy could cast a spell, the Golden Guy was wedding bells
The Golden Guy had a voice like Elvis

The top-most Shaq Fu box is a factory sealed one with FREE SHAQ RAP CD inside. It's in there, but.. I'll never hear it. No way I'm bustin' that Shaq Fu out.

... I must agree, the intro I made there is pretty god awful. But I'd say it's made up for by the quality of the video itself.


Anyway, I should see less agreeing with how awesome this all is and more donating of Shaq Fus!
