by tom moodyComments Off on predator vs aliens: the last judgment
hat tips bees and photos for the 1994 Alien vs Predator game. In one of the early levels of the demo the Predator (you) is a huge musclebound goon walking around with a sword lopping the heads off sleek, purple, feminized Aliens who greatly outnumber HIM. The supernatural combat theme has been around in visual art for a few hundred years or so. Signorelli's Last Judgment panel looks very similar but the bat-winged demons and long-tressed angel aren't as (unconsciously?) "gendered" as in the Capcom AvP (marketed mostly to boys). No heavy conclusions to be drawn here, just making a few notes.
