Dtoid first look: Family Guy

10:23 PM on 10.05.2006 // RobertSumma

PeterMain.jpg Bottom line: An "M" rated LEGO Star Wars with Family Guy animation and humor. I was invited by 2K Games today to check out their upcoming game Family Guy -- which in case you live under a rock is based on the animated television show of the same name. I'd have some video for you all, but unfortunately GameSpot has been given the first extensive gameplay video rights -- pfft, elitists. Anyway, what I got to see were a few of the levels in action with all three characters you'll be able to control during the game. Each has their own play style and game mechanic with little tales that tie in to the loose main storyline. Stewie.jpg Serving up some Stewie The first character 2K wanted to show me was that little tramp Stewie Griffin. When you play as Stewie, it's essentialy a platform shooter experience (think LEGO Star Wars and such). Besides collecting items to assemble his main weapon -- a ray gun -- players can also take over certain characters with Stewie's mind control capabilities which allow you to solve simple puzzles scattered throughout. This is where other characters come in to play like Quagmire and Louis. Brian.jpg Life of Brian When you take control of the family dog, Brian, you are playing what is more or less a stealth game. The level I was introduced to with Brian was right after he was thrown in to jail after being falsely accused of dropping his seed in someone's bitch (females dogs are called bitch -- always a great joke). As you're placed in jail, you escape immediately and must sneak past prisoners and such as you make your way out of the facility. Along the way, you'll see some prisoners giving each other backrubs and chasing that sweet prison ass around the showers. Funny stuff, I'm tellin' ya. PeterInside.jpg Peter is not a piper For the main man Peter Griffin, 2K told me they were going for a Final Fight-style of gameplay. Basically, Peter's missions are that of a pure brawler. Peter's story boils down to a convoluted mission of finding TV-legend Mr. Belvedere. He does this by kicking the crap out of strangers and collecting the food they drop. Overall impressions The game actually look fun and keeps a lot of that strange humor and fast cut away scenes (done with WarioWare-like mini-games) that you'd expect in something coming from the Family Guy. The game comes out Oct. 17 for the PlayStation 2, PSP, and Xbox. If you're a fan, I think this may actually be a solid game for you and you'll enjoy it. Although, if you agree with South Park's stance and can't stand Family Guy, then you won't like this game either.

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?

Fallout 4 wouldn't be Fallout with ridiculous glitches and shenanigans. Here are a few I've run into - [youtube][/youtube]

I've never earnestly went drinking before so it's cool to know I'm the slow, sleepy, impaired type.

Got to admit I didn't expect to find a mewtwo amiibo at my bookstore of all places...

My cousin found out I slept with his girlfriend and is pissed. Understandable. I am totally sick of the angry phone calls though. It reminds me so much of playing Call of Duty online. The screaming 11 year olds suck on there too.

Huh. Apparently even Japan has a Black Friday sale going on on PSN right now.

Yes, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I know that somebody has 2,625 more medallions than me. No, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I don't really care.

This fucking Bloodborne DLC, jesus. I'm on new game+, about level 90, and shit just tears my dick off. I don't know if I want to start another guy just to avoid NG+ and level him up, etc. sigh....

Wii U, top selling black friday item on Take that you anti-Wii U people.

I am pretty hyped for when I get a laptop because I'll be able to have a good enough connection to stream XbOne/soon PS4 games to it along with natively rendered Steam games. Hype!

Got a PS4 that came with SW Battlefront this week, and planning on picking up the FFX/X-2 remake. Hype is through the roof, especially for FFX. If I were to get one other game, what should it be?

Did a google maps search around my parents house for bars and there isn't one in like 25 miles, so I picked up an Intel compute stick and South Park: Stick of Truth on Steam. That's more or less the drunken screaming I'm in the mood for at about the cost.

Do you ever have that moment of clarity when talking to someone and suddenly realising: You're just a skull, and they're just a skull, with fucking eyeballs and a sac of skin being the only comparative difference between you visually? ..just me then?

After quitting for two days out of frustration, I beat Ludwig on my first try of the night. I'm on cloud fucking nine right now.

When I did my retail shift today, we were moving more Smash/Splat Wii U bundles and the Gears/Rare Replay/Ori XB1 bundles than Uncharted and Battlefront PS4s. I think Nintendo and MS have better value on their side this holiday. Sony got lazy.

I found this weird game called Samurai Heroes for 8 dollars today. Its not bad.

Got Deadpool, Arkham Asylum and BioShock 1 and 2 all for 30$. Not to bad for going Black Friday shopping late.

If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet, GO BUY IT! By far the funniest game I have ever played, and the characters and narrative are incredibly well written. Very few memes unlike BL2 by the way.
