The Boondock Saints Game Possible

Troy Duffy attended SXSW this week where The Boondock Saints director discussed the possibility of releasing a video game based on the cult crime thriller movie and its sequel. "We're thinking of making a video game out of 'Boondock' and I went and listened to these guys pitch me the game and they had already done some programming," said Duffy. "They had already built part of the game and I got to play it." Though he has not made a final decision on whether to go ahead with the project, he says he already has one actor onboard for the project, which he says would be at least a year off. Update: Fixed the headline. Here's more:

"Gamers are so far removed from what I know that I wouldn't even know how the hell to play them," said Duffy. "The demo the developer put together for 'Boondock' seems like real-time…realistic action. You're looking at real characters…you can see sweat on their brows. The technology is out of this world."

When it comes to a video game version of the film franchise, the two things that are most important for Duffy is to maintain the gritty and rough look for the game world's environments and to allow fans be able to play as any of their favorite characters.

"The 'Boondock' fan base wants to have a beer with the MacManus brothers and then pick up a weapon and fight," said Duffy. "With a video game you can increase that kind of intimacy, where they can actually be the brothers and hang out and do some shooting and have some fun. That communal aspect of the game is very important to me."

this is the worst idea i've ever heard, what type of talentless morons are paid to come up with these total shite ideas anyway?. how about a proper movie based game?


why the hell has nobody made a death wish game? the name's awesome, and ready for market, the story would be easy enough to put in a game, ie. man is wronged, man seeks revenge, man gets revenge slowly and awesomely. Dig up some bronson gold audio clips from the movies and transpose them into the game's character. add in some open world gta4 goodness, and a 10 foot long revolver and you have gaming gold. hell you only have to shoot for a 6 hour game these days anyway, how hard could it be? why does the gaming industry keep trying to use material it's not capable of doing properly for the money they want to spend? if you're going to dig up old IP's and fuck the pain away until they're totally spent, then you should at least do it right.
