Man vs. Wild may let you hide inside a camel carcass

Recommended Videos

Man vs. Wild is a ridiculous idea for a television show. The nutty outdoor adventurer Bear Grylls (his name is “Bear,” folks!) gets dropped into a hopeless in-the-middle-of-nowhere situation, and he’s forced to find food and shelter to survive. Of course, “to survive” is used loosely here — he’s being followed by a camera person, who presumably has a way to contact help at any moment.

Back to my point — a ridiculous television show has given birth to what may be a ridiculous game. Man vs. Wild the game puts you in the shoes of Grylls, fighting for survival against the harsh outdoor elements and potential wild beasts. Take this video walkthrough, for example, which shows Grylls getting caught in a sandstorm. At some point it looks like he’ll have to hide inside a camel carcass, which we unfortunately don’t get to see. (Note to the game’s publisher, Crave: This is angering our own Conrad Zimmerman, who says you didn’t show him this in action at E3, either. He demands evidence.)

Fortunately, the game will provide “survival clues” in the form of “The Spirit of Adventure,” glowing path orbs that light the way to things you’ll need on your quest for survival. This will be helpful for me, since I have trouble finding food in my house during lunch time, sometimes. There are just so many things to eat in the fridge; where to begin? But you know what they say — you can lead a man to a rotting animal with shiny orbs, but you can’t make him eat the meat or hide in its remains.

Man vs. Wild is out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii this November.
