In what I'm hoping is a baffling joke, Fox has unveiled plans to launch a massively multiplayer online game based on animated sitcom Family Guy.
I thought the Michael Jackson MMO was a bad enough idea, but this takes the stupidity to a whole new level. I had to register for the beta though. There's no way I'm missing the launch day of something this bad.
Hm, weird, I have no idea of what this will look like, but I'd like to try it
I too can't imagine what this could possibly be like. Family guy-style buildable characters in a Family Guy-styled world with the familiar art styles? But what could the point of it be? I'm as skeptical as DShiznit about this.
UPDATE: they just launched a character creator. The game appears to be running on an embedded Unity engine. I've made four characters so far, one for each of the available classes. I'll post pics later when my computer stops overheating...
I got into the closed beta. Not sure if I should feel lucky about that or not. I'm gonna hold off on posting any info or pictures though, as per the NDA.
*bump*, the beta just opened up. You can sign up at http://www.familyguyonline.com/
and wait to receive a "key" to get on. It's actually not bad, if rather basic. It's no WoW but it would make a nice distraction if you were stuck in a cubicle all day.
My character is "D Shiznit" if you want to try and find me in-game. I dunno if they've implemented the friend system yet.
