Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party: Hot dogs are apparently "crazy" now

8:47 AM on 12.02.2008 // Conrad Zimmerman


It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a game with a good title. Or, if I can't have a good title, give me a really weird one to grab my attention. Just string together a set of words with (at best) tenuous links between them and my ears will immediately perk up. Like, "Zany Monkey Fart Coliseum," or "Autoerotic Asphyxiation Racers." 

Damn. I should get a job titling games.

At any rate, this is Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party, a cell phone game arriving on Verizon phones this week. Its a puzzle game where you cook hot dogs at tailgate parties in a puzzle-game interface. There is, apparently, some kind of story mode, which boggles the mind. But how could you possibly go wrong with that name and a feature such as the, "delicious look and sound of cooking hotdogs on the grill?"

Crazy Hot Dogs Tailgate Party is available on Verizon phones now and will be arriving for a wide range of other platforms in the near future. Hit the jump for a press release.

Los Angeles - Dec. 1, 2008 - Com2uS, a leading provider of mobile entertainment, today announced the launch of Crazy Hotdogs Tailgate Party, a time management-style strategy game for mobile devices. Crazy Hotdogs Tailgate Party captures all the flavor of America's favorite fall competitive sport: tailgating in the parking lot before the big game. Verizon customers can purchase the game by texting HOTDOG to GAME (4263).

A young man mysteriously receives an offer to earn $100,000 by cooking and selling hotdogs. Starting out at football tailgating parties, the player must satisfy a cast of demanding customers and add to his menu of wacky dogs to build his business, reach the goal of becoming a hotdog tycoon, and discover who is behind the puzzling test of wits and skill.

Game features include:
• Intuitive controls and addictive game play, appealing to casual and hardcore gamers alike
• Engaging storyline
• Delicious look and sound of cooking hotdogs on the grill
• Ten different customers with a range of traits and reactions
• Two game play modes: Mission and Free Modes
• Each stage features missions and more money in the bank

The game is available now for Verizon devices across North America, and is expected to launch for the iPhone and iPod in December 2008 and on AT&T and T-mobile US in January 2009.

Anyone else getting massive lag in between games of the Battlefront Beta? I'm running an AMD rig so it might be that but just want to know it's not just me.

Plague Knight is pretty rad, even when represented by mediocre artists [img][/img]

Initial impressions: Chibi-Robo Zip lash is pretty damn fun so far. It's like Mr. Mosquito + Castlevania + Umihara. Controls are spot on, platforming is actually very solid so far, and the characters are about as charming as they can get. +amiibo.

Question: Is resident evil nemesis supposed to start off with a toolbox that has (unlimited) ink ribbon, 250 handgun ammo, magnum (w/ammo), shotgun (w/ammo) and two assault clips, in the first room of the game?????

BREAKING: Inner city man and "Pokemon Go" enthusiast found dead after entering rival gang's territory. "All he wanted was a Shiny Charizard!" according to an interview with a close friend. "We found him on the street, limp as a Magikarp stuck on a beach."

I completely forgot that Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow had an animated opening. Other than the compression, it actually looks really good today, and makes me wonder why Konami didn't commission some sort of Castlevania anime. That would have been sweet.

Gamestop has Splatoon amiibo up, if that's your thing. Totally didn't order and just cancel mine.

Anyone else having issues with italics in blogs? I went to save a draft, and when it loaded the post-saving creature I was working on, the entire text had been italicized and I now am unable to change it back. I've been possessed!
So that's $50 for the season pass on top of the game already costing sixty at launch, plus the monthly subscription fee for playing online on consoles. All in the name of getting the full experience! VYDEO_GEAMEZ!!

Races have been pretty intense, and the last Moto3 race in MotoGP 14 should have been too. Emphasis on the word [i]should[/i]. The AI riders ignored infringements in the last race, meaning everyone was disqualified except me. Derp.

Been playing MotoGP 14 on my Vita. A bit buggy (some menus you need to press circle to go back, then cross to select to proceed, otherwise nothing happens. And motorcycling helmets riding motorcycles in-race), but I've got the sweet spot in difficulty.

Daily VGM #21 (Witcher 1) - Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] I think this theme does a fantastic job capturing the feel of The Witcher 3. Epic, but also somber at times.
