I am an avid gamer with the Playstation 3 as my platform of choice (you can find me at Gates-O-Hell) and campaigns for two upcoming games caught my eye this week.
Mom’s Hate Dead Space 2
I think when you are growing up as a boy it’s your job to see if you can drive your mother crazy. This happens partially because you are trying to struggle to find your own voice and partially because everything you like seems to offend and serve as a complete mystery to your mother. So the sequel to the survival horror game Dead Space taps into that human truth to create ‘Your Mom Hates Dead Space 2’ where they showed game footage to your horrified and mystified mother. Watch them all and see which reaction you think would match your mother.
Bulletstorm Last Call
My next campaign is for the upcoming game from Cliff Bazinski, the mind of behind Gear of War, is called Bulletstorm. The campaign spoofs the popular, well-done and first mature video game campaign I could remember called ‘Believe‘ for the Halo video game series. This version spoofs the dramatic tone and diorama subject matter with much funnier results.
