Holden: If the buzz is any indicator, that [video game]'s gonna make some huge bank.
Jay: What buzz?
Holden: The Internet buzz.
Jay: What the f*ck is the Internet?
Holden: The Internet is a communication tool used all over the world where people can come together to bitch about [video games] and share pornography with one another.
Ah, Kevin Smith, how I love you so. In a totally heterosexual way, of course. Thus, it makes me extremely happy to finally be able to write about you on this here blog. Yes, ladies and gentleman, Kevin Smith has expressed an interest in video games
And who better to report on it than the guy with the Silent Bob avatar?
Hit the break for his exact quote on the potential Jay and Silent Bob sidescroller. Snoogans.
"I'm a big fan of scrolling games," said Smith. "I'm not into first-person games. My theory is you're a game fan of the games you came up with and I came up in the scrolling world. So I still love to this day scrolling games. That's why I'm so entranced with that Mario game on Nintendo DS. It's just a total scrolling game with great graphics."
When it comes to the convergence of Hollywood and games, Smith believes there's a way to bring Jay and Silent Bob to the interactive realm, but he needs some help.
"I'm really not good enough to pull it off," said Smith. "Games is one field that I like to be entertained, rather than try to be entertaining. For years, people have been telling me to do a Jay and Silent Bob game. I'd be all for it, but I'm just not the guy to do it. I'd be happy to write the back story for the game, but when it comes to what are the levels and challenges and bosses and things like that, I'm so not good at coming up with that kind of stuff. It'd be nice if someone came out with a Jay and Silent Bob game. I'd play it in a heartbeat."
You're a DS fan too, Kevin Smith? God damn, why are you so awesome? Anyway, exciting stuff. I'll e sure to keep you guys updated on this, if someone ever decides to do it. C'mon, someone can make a BongSaber Wii game...
