Our buddies over at D.H.A.D.M. showcased MSN Reality Fame last week, but we’re okay with our Buddha-Come-Lately status.  This nifty little web app lets you make your own reality show commercial, using one of three scenarios and either a set cast or a customized user-created cast. 

Of course, if you’d rather just sit back and let someone else do the work, you can view other people’s creations (like say mine, or this one).

Right now only the “Stranded on an Island” option is usable, but MSN Messenger 7.0 users can have access to other scenarios.  I like the ‘Flash on the fly’ feel to it, and I was kinda impressed by how the audio sync worked. 

Alright kiddos, internet pals, and lurkers, here’s the game: Send us your best creations and, if you’re the best of the best we’ll send you some of the sweet, sweet schwag we have lying around from RazorFine Reviews.  Your choice of a couple of cool DVDs from our stash!  Blood filled snow globes!  Posters! It can be all be yours!

    Won’t even run of Firefox.

  • .alphamonkey.

    Hmm..let’s see: It’s put out by MSN, which is in turn an arm of Microsoft.

    You’re suprised by it not working with FireFox how, exactly?

  • fullmetal

    … MSN is something from Microsodt, right? Microsoft something Network, I think. Sooooooooo….. I wrote a play about Microsoft and FireFox, short story short, Microsoft a’int not gonna run on FireFox, You should use IE or something or other.

  • .alphamonkey.

    MSN stands for MicroSoft Network.

  • Thundarr

    Yeah, I know just thought I’d mention it.  Oh by the way has anyone gone to and looked at all the trailers with their PC?  Hmmm….didn’t need a Mac for that, but I have to use the shitty little IE that was inproperly installed on my 4 month year old computer to play this game that or spend an entire day downloading a new version and then upload and screw up my perfect Firefox browser.  Nah, next post please.

  • .alphamonkey.

    99% of those sentences make no sense.

  • Thundarr

    Well, what can you expect with your diminuitive monkey brain.  My point was Apple does not have me go out and buy a Mac to use their browser to look at their stuff, they allow all users to have access.

  • .alphamonkey.

    My superior monkey brain wasn’t the problem.  It’s the fact that you learned sentence structure from Yoda’s retarded cousin.

    I don’t know if anyone has told you this yet, but Internet Explorer is FREE

    Safari, on the other hand, does require you to run the Mac OS. 

    So, nyah-nyah.

  • Thundarr

    Yeh, well if you’d ever fix the edit boxes I might use proper punctuation again.

    Again, apple programs let you use anything

    Bill Gates makes you use his, and I don’t care if it’s free.  Firefox works better and didn’t take me 8 hours to download like the newest update for IE will. 

    It’s like they want me to trade in my Ferrari for a beat up Pinto just so I can drive by this accident on the side of the road.

  • .alphamonkey.

    A) They do work.  Try clicking it.

    B) Not true in the least.  When was the last time you loaded a .Mov file in WinAmp?  Quicktime is a proprietary format, meaning you have to have the quicktime player to view it.  And again, you have to run Mac OS to run Safari.

    C)??? Is that why IE is supported across a couple different operating systems?  Or why Windows Media Format can be played in nearly any player? 

    I like FireFox, but it still doesn’t match IE for compatibility, no matter how standards compliant it is.

  • Thundarr

    A) Uh, no it doesn’t…and yes I know how to click a button.  I always get sent to a screen with a “You are not authorized to access this page” message.

    B) The length of this argument has long outgrown my interest in it.

  • .alphamonkey.

    Quitters never win, and winners never quit, Thundarr.

    a) See, it DOES work. You’re just not allowed to do it.  A considerable difference, I’d say.

    b) That’s because you lost.

  • Thundarr

    Be careful with tautologies monkey.

    Quitters do sometimes win.  Imagine this scenario:  You quit basic training and end up getting dishonorably discharged.  Your whole platoon goes over to Iraq, and due to budget contraints has been equipped with no armor is sent on a completely meaningless mission and is whiped out in 4 minutes and 18 seconds.  I’d say the guy still alive, back home in the good ol’ USA seems like a winner to me.

    Winners always quit in the end.  It’s called retirement.

    A)It doesn’t work for me, what the hell do I care if it works for anyone else?

    B)Barbarians have never been known for their punctuation.

    C)Exiting stage right with dignity and grace, but not before giving you the finger.

  • Shadow Stalker

    I agree with you that IE only sites suck, and it this case it doesn’t even make sense since the app is completely Flash.  But you can’t even access most of it unless you go through MSN messenger, so who cares?  You’re not missing anything.
