Playing Through The Pain: Deadliest Catch Edition

GrE writes, "Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm however, is probably one of the most boring games I have yet to play. Being a huge fan of the show, I figured I would give this one a shot. I knew just by the sheer fact that it was a based on a Discovery channel show that it was going to be bad..."

I never thought this would be a good game.

Well, it COULD have been the sleeper hit of 2009. Not really.

This game was going to be a steaming pile of crap before they ever typed a single line of code.

Just 'cause I'm from AK doesn't make this game my fault.

There have been two console games – Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm and Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos – and a free-to-play online game on the official Web site.

0:01 Zip-update-doo-dah.

0:02 A high-def yet still blocky-looking boat, the Northwestern, floats on choppy waters as three disembodied heads look on above the title. "Wanted Dead or Alive" plays in the background. Makes me want to play Rock Band...

0:03 "Ice builds up faster on the side of your boat that is the most exposed to wind." Thanks for the nautical tip, loading screen!

0:04 In the Bering Sea: "Mayday, mayday ... we are taking on water ... mayday!" A window cracks as a wave washes over a guy in a yellow raincoat. The U.S. Coast Guard ship is rushing in, ETA 15 minutes. A chopper flies off the deck of the savior ship.

0:05 Suddenly, a video of some guy (from the show?) comes on explaining, in a very unpolished manner, that some heavy storm-force winds are coming. I'm not close enough to help in the rescue, so I have to go back to harbor. "The autopilot is set ... all you need to do is take the throttle and control the speed." Really? That's it?"
