Due to the enormous success of FX's hit show Sons of Anarchy, it seems as if series creator Kurt Sutter was pressured into creating a multiplayer browser based game to help monetize the IP. Well, some time has passed since that idea came to light, but as of this week, Sutter has called the idea of a browser based game "slapcrap", and now there are even bigger plans for a legit full console release. Right now there is no announced publisher or planned release date.
I initially dismissed the series as "some dumb testosterone-filled biker show", but was immediately swayed when one of my friends called it "Hamlet on wheels". One week later, I had already sucked up all four seasons, and now eagerly await Season 5. One of my biggest mantras is "I'll give anything a chance if someone recommends it". If you're one of those people, Season 1-3 are available on Netflix.
As for the game, even if it's bad, if it utilizes the show's cast it could be decent fan service at the very least. Let's just hope it doesn't turn out like the Prison Break game (which I somehow ended up beating through sheer force of will).
