This stuff drives me crazy. All the good work being done in the industry, all the great games being produced, innovating in storytelling and technology and game theory… And there is stuff like this.

 

It strikes me as a weird copy of some East Asian game most likely. This stuff all reeks of a weird mix between the kind of drinking games that start up after dinner and the “racy” tv shows that air after midnight in places like Taiwan and Japan. It’s just odd. Of course, the Wii market is completely to blame. The console has been so successful that the catalogue is flooded with all kinds of dross.

 

I just want to know one thing: how does this trailer get made? Apart from it being ridiculous, it’s pretty sexist, regardless of whether or not the two dudes take their shirts off at the end (or get spanked…). I don’t know, count me out anyway.
