Harry Potter and the Inappropriate Video Game Tie-In
« on: June 01, 2010, 08:45:12 PM »
So, here's the trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows  video game:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/bz84637ot0c&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/bz84637ot0c&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1</a>

Yep. A shooter. Bet you didn't expect that, huh?

So far, I've heard if referred to as "Call of Potter: Arcane Warfare" , "Battlefield: Phoenix Company" and "Harry Potter and the Gears of War." And I don't recall the zombies in the original either.  Oh well. It looks wacky enough that it might make an interesting rental.

Bizarre.  I guess it makes sense in a way, too.

The whole book is basically a shitload of shootouts - just with wands instead of guns - anyways. I don't think it's too innapropriate.

Whatever the case, if those are the in-game graphics...Wow.

What's with Harry's face at 0:45?  It looks like a NICE LAAAAAAAAAAADY gave him a PAIN IN THE GLAVIN'!   ;D

Looks like it'll make for interesting Deathmatch sessions...especially with headsets.

When do you get to play as Hagrid with his enchanted 10 gauge?

Or as Ron, doing drivebys in an invisible car.

Nah, it just hurls Roald Dahl's coffin at your opponents.
