Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 was released today, but oddly enough this is the first time the game's been shown in video form, as far as I know.

While the trailer above is no Duke Nukem Trilogy trailer, it does a fine job of showing the many ways you can die in Dangerous Hunts 09 without actually showing any death.

Additionally, the attached press release spells out a number of in-game death scenarios unrelated to being mauled by an animal, such as plane crashes, avalanches, and drowning. How uplifting.

So then, what can we gather about Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 from this information? If you like hunting and are especially fond of dying, it could be the game for you. You might even say it's awfully awesome.

Or it could just be plain awful. I'm not willing to drop $40 to find out.

Nature Bites Back In Activision Publishing's Newly Released Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009

SANTA MONICA, CA – September 23, 2008 – Be afraid... very afraid. Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today released Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment systems, and Wii™, rendering no hunter safe amidst scores of savage animals in the world's most treacherous hunting locales. The latest title in the best-selling Cabela's Dangerous Hunts franchise turns the food chain upside down, where you will need to rely on precision shooting and quick reflexes to make it out of the wilderness alive.

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 is all about nonstop danger and fast action – this is a thrilling hunting experience for both hunting enthusiasts and first-person action fans. The stats speak for themselves: the game has 25 of the world's most dangerous animals, including lions, grizzly bears, Cape buffalo, rhino, jaguars and more in 9 exotic, rugged locations like the South American jungle, Alaskan wilderness, and the Russian tundra. To top it off, ferocious beasts aren't the only way you can meet your maker – you must survive plane crashes and boat down treacherous rivers, as well as avoid avalanches, stampedes, and piranha-infested waters.

"We've created an intense wilderness experience where hunting for sport is taken to a new level," said Dave Oxford, Activision Publishing. "The onslaught of danger is relentless. The question is, how long can you survive?"

You play as Flint Abrahams, a seasoned big game hunter on a quest to hunt the world's deadliest trophies. Equipped with Cabela's gear, the most respected outdoor recreation brand in the world, one would think the odds are on your side. But no one has even seen animals this fierce – they will charge you if you miss your shot, then you will be forced to fight them via melee defense. But pay attention, nearby animals may join the attack, which means dire consequences for those without the requisite combination of brawn and pinpoint shooting ability.

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 will also feature a wide variety of gameplay modes, including fan favorite Action Zone, where the player will fight off waves of surprise animal attacks, and Bonus Hunt Mode, where you use the skills you gained in a series of intense hunting challenges.

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2009 is available for $39.99 for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and Wii™, and $29.99 for PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. For more information visit www.activision.com

At first I thought it would be fun. Then more ideas came, so I kept adding. More! More! But soon it just became stubbornness. Now, as I stare at 10000 words of meandering loon about a subject I'd almost rather be porn, I must question all my life choices.

Someone on Gamefaqs asking the real questions. How mad would you be if halfway through the Mad Max game he stumbles upon a tribe of kids and the rest of the game is a lighthearted romp?

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.
