Family Values in Video Games

More news on the band Korn and its involvement in Ubisoft's Haze.

On its own, Haze looks pretty alright. Developer Free Radical Design has made some intermittently solid first-person shooters with its TimeSplitters series, and the angry teenager in me still finds some appreciation for the game's oppresive Huxleyian setting. Also, drugs.

But then Korn got involved, and now whenever Haze is mentioned, my mind immediately wanders to one of the world's greatest press releases. Things only got worse today when Ubisoft announced that "Haze," the Korn single recorded for the game, is now available for money

They've also released a video of a live performance of the song, synergistically inter-cut with footage from the game. Sadly, Ubisoft is requiring age-gate nonsense to post the video, but all you really need to know is that Jonathan Davis appears to be wearing a skirt. Which is, you know, edgy. I wonder what his parents must think! As an alternative, here's a bootleg-ass "video" of the song that Jeff found on YouTube, complete with custom intro. Enjoy!

  


Like Serjery15 says "This is definitely...Korn." I guess I should just be grateful that there's never been a Korn/Mortal Kombat krossover, as sickeningly logical as that seems. Knock on wood!

OMMFG how can I forget that press release.

I wouldn't call the Timesplitters games "intermittently solid". That's a bit of an understatement, wouldn't you agree?
