There are two types of people in the world today. The first constantly repeats “Primrose Everdeen” in a half-assed Effie Trinket voice and owns a life-sized shrine to Rue in her room, along with a Jennifer Lawrence hair doll in her purse. The second is sitting on Twitter and saying, “Battle Royale did it first! And better.” There’s also probably a third kind of person who can’t afford a DVD player, but let’s just exclude him for argument’s sake.
That’s right, The Hunger Games is out on home video today, and to celebrate, GamesBeat dug up a couple Hunger Games/Minecraft crossover videos. YouTube user “CaptainSparklez” and friends (or tributes, if you must) loosely recreated a little friendly competition…to the death! Unfortunately, no poorly rendered CG mutant dogs appear in this video, but there are lots of creepers, which are slightly more believable anyway.
By the way, Battle Royale totally is better.
