For a game promotion I have to admire them for at least thinking outside the box. Also 0:36-0:42 is badass.
So David Jaffe wants us to shoot his truck via the internet...
@pw2566chGiving nerds directional control over a real gun via the internet seems like a recipe for disaster.
I have a question about this. Is there any chance we can aim the gun? Because I wouldn't mind shooting out the tires or Sweet Tooth's head.
Oh wait. You think that we're going to try to shoot at one of the people running this ad campaign? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! That's actually not a bad idea.
Hmm I don't find shooting a truck by clicking a mouse button appealing at all. Shooting holes into a truck with a heavy mg sure does sound like fun (and really exhausting), but only if I'm the person holding the gun.
It's good that people actually seem to think this is cool, though. Hopefully that promotion will sell them a few additional copies.
According to Jaffe it's filled with C4. Don't even know how that's gonna work but still...
The C4 comes into play when they choose the 3 people to do the "kill shot" tomorrow. But for now people just firing the gun at targets, some of them explosive i do believe. With new targets put up on the hour. Testing the gun now, still not being fired by people online.
also, BEST VIDEO GAME PROMOTION EVERRRRR!
I've been watching it for awhile now. They keep it interesting with the ice cream truck spinning around and different type of targets with hidden explosives. They've been running into some trouble, like when the truck caught on fire and they had to quickly shut down the three guns and go running out there with fire extinguishers. They managed to get it out.
Sweet Tooth's truck burning to the ground before it blows up with C4 isn't part of the plan.
