TVGB Hands-on Preview: Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard

TVGB writes: "Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard, the upcoming third-person shooter from Vicious Cycle Software and D3 Publisher, is a game for gamers. That may sound retardo to you because who else are games for? What I mean is it's loaded with references and in-jokes that only seasoned, hardcore gamers will fully understand and appreciate. Finally, 20+ years of useless knowledge will prove to be of use in something other than Trivial Pursuit at drunken gatherings.

To start my hands-on, I was shown the opening cinematic with Matt Hazard (voiced by Will Arnett) giving his life story about the meteoric rise in videogames he made from the 8-bit days into the world of 3D shooters and subsequently his downward spiral of shovelware, kart racing and crappy, non-violent water gun-based affairs. It's full of references to games like Duke Nukem, GoldenEye and Mario Kart that perfectly sets the tone for what's ahead and shows it's as serious as a bear riding a tricycle. For the record, bears riding trikes are awesome."

The gameplay is good enough to make the funny stuff worth while.
