Here is a video from the God of War 2 press party, including the contest which stirred controversy over the use of a dead goat. Watch for yourself to see how the goat was involved, and whether contestents did actually have to eat from it.
Well so this was sort of a geeky version of Fear Factor that was blown way out of proportion. Thanks over zealous internet idiots for turning a mountain out of a lame molehill.
Just goes to show that you shouldn't listen to tabloid media, especially newspapers such as the Daily Mail in the UK which is notorious for being anti-gaming and having a go at anything which appears to threaten their high sense of middle class morality!
What about all the people who last week kicked the boot in and took the sides of the over the top media outcry against the God of War team and Sony?
It'd be great to start seeing people apologising and admit they were shortsighted now that they've seen the story in context. But will this happen is the real question?
Nope. Sony's the favorite scape goat (haha) at the moment.
that news is slow...ZZzzZzzzzZZzz
Now that looked like a bunch of fun sort of like something at the renaissance festival! That dude playing Kratos looked pretty freaking huge though and definitely someone I would think twice about bumping heads with lol! Honestly though I don't see what all the negative press was about when this was meant to be fun!
another boring week. sigh.....
oh how wrong you are...announcements of new games coming soon.
Also...this video is actually very important on the gaming news. As it shows that all those reports were way off base. "eating from the goat"...uh!
Deep you can't leave us hanging like that!
Come on, give us a little taste will you?
Anything on Eight Days out there?
More Killzone maybe?
Well I think it's known that we'll hear more about Warhawk and LittleBigPlanet this week. And new PSN games will be announced...but I can't say anymore than that.
LBP news would be awesome.
Warhawk would be welcome as well!
But have you heard anything on Eight Days? IGN I think
listed it as a Dec 2007 release, wich I'm starting
to doubt because we haven't seen anything since the last E3 !
You havent even heard of many of the games that will be released this year...because they haven't been announced yet. So I'd say that's worse than not seeing any new media from 8days.
We'll see...I feel some videos of Uncharted coming on though... well at least some information (hoping for more)...oh and Ratchet media blow out again this month.
Might hear some stuff on WarDevil soon as well.
Some unknown games for this year!
I can't wait
Looking forwards 2 playing it!
Errr... sooo... what's so different?
I like how they seem to have dodged the bare-breasted (save bodypaint) girls at the event, and showed only the actors in full dress. Nice way to cut the video.
They're still using a real slaughtered animal at a press event, and the implication is still eating the animal's innards. Oh, but instead of being just part of the press event, it's part of a competition, so it's all cool now. ???
^^^And does that anger PETA or any other animal rights activists any less?
It is good to see that at least we're talking about more of a Fear Factor type thing... but that brings up a whole other argument about how stupid Fear Factor is. ;)
Hey, sign me up for the Manhunt2 press event....That'll give the idiot lawyers against gaming some real "ammunition"...LOL
