Gaming Meme History: All Your Base
- May 8, 2012
You demand and we deliver! In this episode of Gaming Meme History, we look at the grandfather of all gaming memes.
LOL! The translation is so bad that people (including Jess and USA Today) tend to internally correct it to be "...set us up...", but the actual line (you can read it on the screen) is: "Somebody set UP US the bomb." I think that one is as funny as "All your base..."
One of the best things ever ;)
@WolfGrey I know a girl IRL who is the blonde hair blue eyed version of Jess McDonell... it's uncanny they could be cousins...
@nomailx Well 2 things, one...the accent is not English. And to learn the accent which is Australian, just practice recording your self, then playing it back, so learn by listening to Ausies then coping what their accent is, while coping, record your self, play it back, and then see where you went wrong. Rinse and repeat. The second part, so you can be on TV, ummm...this isn't TV.
what do you mean she's ugly??? my plan is to put my arrow in her knee allll night until all her base are belong to me.
WTH is wrong with you people? She's not at all ugly and has a cool job and doesn't have to worry about invalids like you trying to down her.
Why is it that 90% of the comment's are about this girl and how attractive she is? seriously? come on guy's go out and get yourself a girlfriend, you all sound pathetic.
im pretty sure most of us do...but like i said she too awesome.
and dont act as if....you know she is. and if we didnt say anything i bet you would so yeah....its cuz of us you dont have to hahahah
Yep. This is the greates gaming meme so far. :P I didn't know this show. Well, now I do, so I thank the gamespot staff for helping in my productivity downturn in the near future. :P
Nobody ever noticed it, probably because it was just some small time character saying it, but I was always fond of, "When I grow up I want to be a blitzball!" from FFX. But yes, this is the ultimate meme short of maybe the whole arrow to knee thing.
I very fondly remember Zero Wing's s___ty English translation. It was freakin' hilarious!
There's a huge "girl with an english accent" vogue going on, in tv shows, movies, gamespot videos...
I have to say this is one of my favorite memes, along with Leroy Jenkins. I've never seen her before. She does seem like she's probably new to being in front of the camera, but I bet she'll be one of their best before long.
I do enjoy her accent , its different from British or american , I can't really define from where it is from.I used to play Warcraft III a lot and the cheat code to win a campaign map was this meme ''All your base are belong to us'' , I never quite understood that , thanks for the info @tempertress .
