Yesterday, my copy of Mad Dog McCree: Gunslinger Pack arrived in the mail. I played it for an hour or so, knowing that this would probably be the first and last time that I put the game into my Wii.
Sober, I mean.
I have a good deal of sadly misplaced nostalgic affection for Mad Dog McCree, a clunky, silly Western shooter using live-action video that debuted as an arcade game in 1990. It was one of the first really hot games for the emerging PC CD-ROM format, and represented what we all carelessly, wrongly assumed was the Future Of Videogames: live-action video of real human beings.
