Sons of Anarchy Game?

A tweet by Sons of Anarchy producer Kurt Sutter indicates they are looking at the possibility of a video game based on the FX TV series about an outlaw biker gang, as he says: "soon to be taking meetings about an SOA game. have a major gaming company interested. trying to figure out costs, platform and timing." A follow-up tweet indicates this would likely be browser-based: "to do a quality platform-based game costs tens of millions and takes years. we're toying with the idea of a high-end browser-based game." He also expresses surprise that something he tweeted out to his 100K+ followers got noticed, as he does not seem to grasp how the twitter machine works. Thanks Blend Games.

I'm assuming aiming will be impossible, and all the characters won't be able to hit the side of a barn with their guns? Just like on the show?

If you could look past your myopic stereotypical profiling view of a supposed Biker.... you`d see they are from all walks of life. ALL.

As for their crimes, your peeps in Government all the way to prolly a few Presidents are just as culpable. Even the Pope is not exempt. How we got a Pope who did time in the Hitler Youth is anyones guess. Remember, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

This is another reason I don`t shed a tear about Devs crying over piracy. I had a few Dev Buds who worked on some pretty popular games back in the day, and they were not above downloading a leak here and there.

There are 2 worlds, the 1 you wanna see, and the other 1 you either refuse to see, or are too afraid to accept. Ymmv.

As for an SOA game, if it is a fps pov I might give it a go. Anything else is a non consideration.

Or a brotherhood of bored, disenchanted, wealthy white collar types who are trying to find some sort miniscule joy in their career driven, suburbanite Hell.

Was this a multiple choice question? I choose 'B'.

Wasn't that the movie American Beauty?

I'm not a biker, and I work around a bunch of them to know they can be... different. They certainly aren't the types I socialize with outside of work. I still watch and enjoy Sons of Anarchy. Of course, it goes without saying the game will be non-gamer-focused cash-in drek unless by some miracle the developers are actually given sufficient time and resources to make something halfway decent.

Mr Leela aka Sutter, look it up, there knows how-to use twitter and was being tongue in cheek. While not on the level of a Breaking Bad it uses the biker angle as the setting instead of the usual lawyer, cop, fireman, doctor drama motif.

Sounds like you've answered your own question.

What question? That was a statement.

Well you said you didn't understand it. But people always like entertainment about criminal scumbags.

I've always viewed them as antisocial loaners who don't see anything good from "society" and created their own brotherhood.

Do those antisocial, or loners, really create brotherhoods? : )

Yeah, as SomeDude said, Lost and the Damned did a great job of "outlaw biker" gameplay. I'd say that expansion is the high water mark for this game. That said, seeing that this is going to be browser-based, expect another shitty game like Battlestar Galactica Online.

Might be ok, as long as you can play Jax not as a whiny pussy (like on the show) ohhh and if you could tighten up his asshole so he doesn't strut around.

Kind of like people who pirate games. Or threaten to pirate games.
