Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse

SDCC: Going to the handicapped world in Family Guy: BttM

1:25 PM on 07.14.2012 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is based on the episode Road to the Multiverse, which saw Stewie and Brian traveling to parallel dimensions. The episode is a fan favorite, and one of my personal favorite episodes too.

Bertram, Stewie's evil half-brother, was killed recently in one of the episodes. So in the new game, a Bertram from another dimension wasn't happy with this, and is seeking revenge by killing all of the Stewie's from every dimensions. You'll be going through ten different dimensions in order to stop Bertram, and our latest look at the game took us to a level called Handicappable, where all the handicap people have risen to power and have made people without disabilities the minority.

The Family Guy humor was immediately present as soon as we got into Handicappable. All the parking spots are handicap spots, every curb has a blue line painted on it, and everyone you end up fighting has some sort of disability. The first enemy is a guy on AK-47 crutches, and he was even delivered by a short bus. It took about 20 awkward seconds for the bus lift to lower the guy off from the bus before he could attack you.

You'll be playing as Stewie and Brian, and you're able to swap between the two on the fly using projectile and melee based weapons. A second player can jump in at anytime for co-op action, but this is limited to local play only. Along with the guns, you can use special items like summoning Ernie The Giant Chicken to attack others or the Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flaling Tube Man to distract enemies.

Eventually you'll get to a point in the level where you have to fight Crippletron, which is a Voltron-like fusion of wheelchair bound people, with Joe Swanson forming the head. Sound familiar? It's happened in an episode before.

As far as gameplay went, it looked like your standard affair. It's a simple third-person shooter loaded with more references than a season of Family Guy. Overall the game looks like it will take about six to eight hours to complete, and there's going to be a four-player local versus and challenge based modes to round out the package.

It's going to be fun, but you're going to have to be familiar with Family Guy in some form in order to enjoy this at all.

Man, I completely forgot how awesome Pokemon Black and White's soundtrack is. The Vs. Trainers theme is probably one of the best I ever heard, if not the best in the entire series: [youtube][/youtube]

Apparently the upcoming Tri-Force heroes update makes the local-play only items possible to get for everyone. That's pretty great!

Playing For Glory earlier today, some guy beat me and changed his name to "ifukdu_up". I won next round and he changed it to "ILETUWIN". I then 2-0ed the little sucker, and he left the lobby. I took great pride from this incident.

Why the hell are we suddenly accepting micro transactions in fully priced games? It used to be only acceptable in free-to-play games but its sickening that even AAA developers like microsoft are on the bandwagon.

If you're ever writing about something from the heart, and you stop and think "I don't know how people will react to me if I write this" then you absolutely should go ahead. Passionate conviction is often the only voice you'll have.

Two more reasons not to preorder: the game might appear in stores before release day (Hello, Xenoblade Chronicles X for 60EUR at my local mall) or the mail workers may be on strike (well, they were until Monday).

Hey, US Pokemon fans! Apparently if you just rename your SSID to Mcdonalds Free Wifi, you don't even need to go anywhere to get your Hoopas. Seems like they could've just made this one a normal download.

It may have been a war of attrition, but I just took out a Snowspeeder on foot in Battlefront. Aww, yeah.

Last night, for one reason or another I watched the endings of bloodborne via vaatividya, and in so doing made myself sad that I will never get to play it. Still cool that they seem to have really nailed that lovecraftian exestential horror and despair.
