OMG...if they can make this an open world and in the style on Simpsons hit and run then this will be amazing.

Although with the title "Back to Multiverse" it seems like it will feature linear gaemplay going through differen't worlds. Plus it sounds like you could only play as Stewie and Brian



Oh....look at that....Activision

Yeah, that's exactly the same plot as the Phineas and Ferb PS3 game, but at least that plays like Ratchet and Clank.

RonaldRaygun2213d ago

I think following the formula for the Simpsons Game from 2007 would be perfect. Big town you can explore freely, almost every character from the show in the game somewhere, inside jokes dating back through the whole series, choosing what missions to do and when, 4 playable characters that all feel different. The core mechanics of the gameplay were a little dull, but the devs nailed every other aspect of that game.

If the Family Guy devs aren't ready for a big undertaking, then the game will probably suck.

The fact that you got six disagrees tells an awfully whole lot about the folk that browse this site.

Not overrated.Completely devolved and bordering on psychotic more like it. When it first came out it actually had the makings of an interesting show but they went the over the top, lowlife, mindless way the way many shows go when they run out of ideas. I am not sure what is with the 'I can top the last disgusting lowlife thing I did' route, the same thing South Park does.Like the episode where Peter drank gasoline and destroyed his kidneys or when he beat up the little kid. Was that supposed to be funny?

@ coolbeans. thank you for summarizing exactly what i just said. When you have to do things like this just to get a laugh out of people just shows how juvenile you are. A good example is MAD on Cartoon Network and Robot Chicken. MAD makes me laugh without having to resort to cursing, killing and raping people, beating up children and being completely lewd.

VanillaBear2213d ago

Jeez you and the others make it out like Family guy is the one only show to run out of ideas

The Simpsons is far worse and it's still on air

South Park is running out of ideas, you only get a really funny epsisode once every so often and it's only because Cartman is in it

Giggity giggidy Giggity giggidy,let's have sex.

You go on for as long as South Park and of course you are going to start running out of ideas. Just like Simpsons.

Still great to watch though, the Game of Thrones part in the recent SP episode had me cracking up for like 5 mins.

As for Family Guy, going crazy is what saved the show. They did that after it had first gotten canned and that pulled in bigger ratings and did make the show even funnier imo

Futurama is still the king, the show can't fail as long as the professor farnsworth is in it.

yeah kinda agree, haven't watched the show since season 5. I'd prefer another Futurama game :).

and off topic. That new Ted movie looks horrible, Ted sounds too much like Brian.

Summons752213d ago

This show still exists? With how dry and boring the show is I figured they would have put that show back on the canceled list.....again

From what I recall of the multiverse episode (one of the few new ones I've seen in a long time):

- One universe had no Christians in it with science 1000 years ahead compared to us.

- One universe was dedicated just to make one joke about Walt Disney's supposed anti-semitism

...It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know Family Guy's low-brow, no-wit humor will display just shallow it has become and how offensive it needs to be in order to generate a laugh.

Edit: God knows how bad it'll be with videogame writers (probably) at the helm.

VanguardOfCalamity2213d ago

if a hot meg

and a genetically perfect pig

are wrong - then I don't wanna be right XD <show em pig> "Oink!"

waltyftm2213d ago

Well said, yes you guys i am the one disagree,ing or whatever way it's spelt with you.

MySwordIsHeavenly2213d ago

Let's just hope bad video game writers are writing this, instead of the actual Family Guy writers.

The show started out well. The comedic timing was brilliant and the characters were interesting.'s just a mockery of humor. -_-
