So I was browsing the internet the other day (trying to find excuses not to do any new posts) when I came across this. Apparently Midway, the developer behind such classic games as Mortal Kombat and …. well pretty much just Mortal Kombat is developing an Aqua Teen Hunger Force game.
This game, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am is going to be (as described by the press release) “an epic, action-adventure combat golf, cart racing game” that allows us lowly Adult Swim watchers an opportunity to “experience the Aqua Teen universe in a whole new way.”
Since the game is being made by Midway it’ll probably be complete crap. Even games by Midway that are supposed to be good often still suck something aweful (Psi-Ops I’m looking at you).
I’m unclear what the exact gameplay is going to be like and I think Midway is being intentionally vague. Like most fast-food themed games it’ll probably involve lots of over the top gore and carnage but not really be all that fun.
Still, it’s hard to argue against this premise:
When Frylock is admitted to the prestigious Jersey Pines Golf Club, Master Shake decides to show the uppity members that he is also just as good (and uppity) and deserves a place in their exclusive club. Meatwad is, of course, persuaded to join in, and the three crime-fighting food products use golf clubs and a variety of other weapons in ways not intended as they battle numerous villains, fan favorites and other show characters.
Plus, with the series creators saying, “This golden chalice represents a new age in gaming, the likes of which has never before been seen on this planet. The weak will tremble at the awesomeness of our full color, hand-made graphics!” you at least have some hope that if it does suck, it’ll suck in a uniquely ATHF way.
