F*CK GUITAR HERO: METALLICA – SUFFOCATION ARE MAKING THEIR OWN VIDEO GAME
2009 is Suffocation’s twentieth anniversary (!), and they’re celebrating in all the usual ways: a headlining tour, a new album, a DVD, and… a video game?
In a statement, the band orders fans to “”Keep an eye out for Suffocation’s upcoming video game which will include unreleased tracks from Suffocation along with a comic book and many other amazing surprises.”
Now, you gotta wonder: what the flying fuck will a fucking Suffocation video game entail? Obviously Guitar Hero and their ilk will never make a Suffocation game the way they’ve made Aerosmith and Metallica games – for one thing, I think literally every death metal fan in the world would have to buy a copy for it to make even 1/10th as much moolah as the Metallica game will, and for another thing, if the makers of Guitar Hero found Slayer’s lyrics too risqué, I can only imagine what they’d make of Suffocation lyrics.
So are Suffocation just going ahead and making their own rhythm game? Or will this be a good old fashioned platformer? Or a role playing game? Can you imagine if you had to play out some Suffocation lyrics? Like if Level 1 was “Infecting the Crypts,” and then you had to exhume a maggot infested wretched body from its timeless slumber?
I, for one, am now incredibly curious. Stay tuned for more details… and feel free to speculate on what the game might entail in our comments section.
