EA pay homage to GTAIV and Rockstar

It seems that EA is putting out a new Simpsons game in what I can only assume will be a tie in with the upcoming movie. Going to this page on EA's website, we are presented with a classic Simpson's yellow screen featuring the title "XXII" done in a mock GTA IV style. Underneath is a counter using the now famous Matt Groening font that is counting down the time, which at the writing of this article was down to exactly four days. So, by Wednesday afternoon we should be treated to some kind of announcement having to do with this mysterious game.

 

This better not be some sort of Island of Rhodes fiasco where on Wednesday the clock just rolls over to add two more days on. Although, if that did happen it would be pretty damned funny and I'm sure I would laugh heartily after throwing my laptop across the room. Flynn De Marco

Funny one.

 

Perhaps their trailer can be a IV trailer mock as well.

They're doing this because they know it'll attract attention on the blogosphere, where ultimately many hits to their website will ensue.

Rockstar should put some Simpsons easter egg in GTA IV after seeing this:) I bet they have a list of stuff to mock anyway.

Cleverly done...might as well capitalize on someone else's success (in a sense) - I suppose

Perhaps the GAME itself is a Simpsons version of GTA IV?

Yeah, they should take this entire game and stick it on an arcade machine inside a pool hall somewhere in Bohan in GTA IV. tounge.gif

Yeah, they should put up a billboard that says something like "Shows that have been on the air for almost 20 years should have been cancelled more than 10 years ago."

EA sucks. They copycat rahkstar2.gif , make crap game after crap game. Poor Simpsons game will be the same EA filth. It would be great to have an entertaining Simpsons game, but EA will screw it up bad. Long live the Simpsons, please die EA.

If this writing is supposed to be the same as the 'IV' logo from GTA IV maybe this Simpson's game is a pony farm game with maybe a bit of violence. It is a long shot but you never know.

 

EDIT: Did someone edit my post because I never remember saying something about a pony farm? It doesnt even make sense. I must of been drugged. notify.gif

Matt Groening should have quit while he was ahead. The programme has been running for too long, and now a movie and another game? Jeez. Homer ruled but even he's running out of material.

funny how they pay hommage to rockstar, but rockstar seems to diss EA games at every opportunity (and rightfully so)..

I smell an upgrade of Hit And Run, which would be freakin' sweet, I loved that game. It did have it's flaws (like all games) but if this is what I think it is, it'll be a kick arse game.

I personally love the Simpsons even though I have not watched it in so long. It does not matter when you pick up and watch it, it is new every time and does not tie in with other episodes so much.

Do you know why Hit & Run was a good game???????????

 

Because crap (EA) had no involvement in that game, that's why.

 

EA had developed, publicized, about 574,219 games, but not Hit & Run.
