Quick observation: I can't look at Wolfenstein promotional materials without thinking of Jin-Roh
. (Tagline: "It's so romantic!")
I mean, I know that it's more likely a case of convergent evolution rather than influence one way or the other. Both take place in alternate histories where the Axis won, after all, and so MG42-wielding soldiers with stahlhelme
are perfectly natural. The bulky suits, the glowing red eyes -- well, this is dieselpunk, and red is a menacing color.
Also, despite its name, Jin-Roh
doesn't have a single robot hound. Seems like a bit of an oversight.
