Oh good, it's a Watchmen game
This is probably the most unsurprising news that has ever surprised me, but it seems next March’s Watchmen film is going to come with its own computer game.
Meh, frankly. The recent trailer has only just managed to make people believe the adaptation *could* actually do the book justice, but I completely fail to see the point in a video game, even if it does take the moderately interesting route of a Rorschach and Nite Owl prequel.
We’re bringing the Watchmen universe to gamers in a distinct episodic game revealing action and combat for a great overall experience for fans,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The filmmakers have been extremely helpful in developing the high-quality game story and we are working to match the outstanding visual style of the film.
I dunno, I can get excited about medicore film makers adapting a Moore story, but the prospect of them plotting a game with the main selling point being ‘it’ll look like the film’ completely fails to excite me - in fact, I think I’m a little angry at the prospect.
In fact, can anyone name a film tie in game that wasn’t massive balls? So far I have Goldeneye 64 and nothing else.
