More Fun with Elvis
On July 5th, 1954, Elvis Presley recorded his first single, a cover of Arthur Cruddup's That's All Right. This recording is currently being hyped as The Birth of Rock 'N Roll,
although I think Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Bill Haley,
and a bunch of other cats who had been doing it for years might
disagree. Still, it's a huge landmark in the history of Rock 'N Roll,
by any standard... and what better way to celebrate it than by playing
video games?!?! There is none, I tells you! None!!
Bu-wah-hah-hah-ha!!! Foolish humans!
So's, anyhoo... here's a couple of nifty new Elvis Presleys you can download to play in Freedom Force.
First up, I got another Elvis skin for the Clint mesh. It's Elvis in a
leather jumpsuit, based on the one he wore in his famous '68 Comeback
special. This has actually been up on my Yahoo group for a while, but I
don't think I ever got around to announcing it.
Next, I've hex-edited the Pulp Versatile mesh to make Elvis in one of
his 1970's Vegas-Era White Jumpsuits. It comes complete with ridiculous
protruding sideburns. Enjoy.
Oh, and my original 1950's Rockabilly Elvis skin for the Clint mesh is
still available to download as well, for those of you silly enough to
not get it yet (foolish, foolish humans).
These are all available from my second yahoo group.
