It's out? Is this that Activision Family Guy game? I expected more coverage leading up to its release.

@EvilNiGHTS: Why'd you post a video of Cel Damage?

Well done. Seriously.

My understanding is that it got delayed to November 2.

Isn't this based on the episode where Stewie and Brian jump from live-action to Disney to other styles of animation, in a bunch of mini-parodies of each?

I don't think its based entirely on the episode itself, but the concept used in the episode. Semantics.

@medacris: From what I heard it's not going to be the same universes like the disney one and that and more like they are jumping to things related to past episodes, that's what I remember reading at least, I could be wrong. The screenshots so far seemed to be linked with the amish related episode they did recently.

How do you think I felt writing that in his voice? I lived in Jeff's head for five minutes, and I've seen things, man... horrible things. Ever wonder why Jeff does such a perfect Brad impression? Jeff IS Brad.

@Sweep Was Ryan groaning the whole time? Or was he into it like he was before it became kinda bad?

Ugh, this has that same pastel color scheme that Sam & Max had. I get a headache playing those games because everything is so dull and muted. I will not be picking this game up, that's for sure.

For what it's worth, Jim Sterling had nothing positive to say about it and gave it a 1.5.

According to the greatest source of video game knowledge available, it's a Family Guy game. Seems pretty straightforward to me.
