Williams is not your typical hero. He's a homeless
streetperson, wandering the burrows of L.A. Some would
say he's a little "whacko". Actually it
was the developers who said that - don't label me
politically incorrect. I don't think all streetpeople
are nuts. Anyone who doesn't spend all day surfing
the internet is all right in my books.
to circumstances beyond his control, Anthony finds
himself a reluctant savior to those around him whom
he couldn't care less about but who desperately need
him to save their lives. It's Bad Day L.A., the tongue
in cheek free-roaming action adventure from American
paricular Bad Day, is a really, messed up, end of
the world kind of bad day. Think terrorist attacks,
zombies, earthquake, South Central gang war and top
it off with a Tsunami. Not quite as bad as giving
Richard Simmons a spongebath, but pretty dang close.
of Comedy Central's Chappelle Show will delight in
the news that American McGee has fashioned his protoganist
after the popular comedian. It would be wonderful
if Chappelle did the voicework for Anthony Williams,
but we're thinking that might be out of the dollars
and cents range at this point.
his adventure, Williams will team up 4 other buddy
characters including a kid who can't stop puking (and
this "ability" comes in handy) as well as
a Mexican immigrant gardner who wields a nasty chainsaw.
We hear it works wonders on the undead. He must have
played Resident Evil 4.
game will be extremely adult in nature in terms of
language and violence, but the game as a whole is
a commentary on the fear that is plaguing the US after
the 911 terrorist attacks. If Reader's Digest has
taught us anything - and it hasn't - Laughter IS the
best medicine. Unless of course, you have cancer or
HIV, then perhaps you might need actual treatment
and something much less giggly to prelong your life.
far we love the cel-shaded look and the irreverant
nature of the story (any game that pits dobermans
against a guy in a burger costume is worth a look)
and can't wait to see more of Mr. Williams Bad Day.
deep and comedic storyline that plays off the "fear
of modern America will satirize Los Angeles and
disaster films as well as provide a wide variety
of challenges and mission scenarios
graphical art style developed by "Kozyndan,"
acclaimed LA-based art team, will give the game
an unmistakable and totally unique look and feel
expansive game levels based on real-world Los Angeles
neighborhoods, including Hollywood Boulevard, Venice
Beach and Beverly Hills, will provide gamers with
unique challenges and opportunities for combat that
vary throughout the course of the game
eclectic arsenal of both everyday and bizarre weaponry
allow the player to fight on with hard-hitting and
sometimes humorous effects
hard-to-master combat system will offer instant
accessibility while demanding the player use street
smarts and creativity to face down and defeat a
potpourri of enemies, both human and otherwise
artificial intelligence (AI) system will feature
non-player characters (NPCs) that experience a range
of emotion such as rage, distress, terror and chemical
