Reservoir Dogs VIDEO GAME


#1

I read in a video game magazine that NINTENDO GAMECUBE was creating a Reservoir Dogs VIDEO GAME!



Sound interesting…?



Well, according to what I read it will all depend on how you make your character act that will make the outcome of whether you wll kill yourselves or make it out with the diamonds…so that means if your Mr. Orange, you don’t have to listen to your fellow cops and go along with the plan and steal the diamonds for yourself!



You’ll also beable to plan your own robberies and play online.



I hope they can create a fun game and not fuck up…they should make it like Grand Theft Auto 3…that game is so much like a Tarantino movie.

nintento… yuck



well I guess starting with the Kill Bill videogame there’s gonna be a wave of tarantino stuff.



there’s already a from Dusk till dawn pc game, maybe there will also be a jackie brown rpg, where you have to fuck everybody and get away with the money or a True Romance videogame where you have to be Elliot and not fuck up the deal or a Pulp Fiction videogame where you are the wolf and have to clean up the mess blah blah blah



i think: fuck, did that have to happen? do they have to turn everything into merchandise? fucking A

There is something very scary about excessive merchandising. It smacks of evil corporations and capitalist globalisation :-/



But I admit to a certain curiosity about a reservoir dogs game… even if I totally hated it, I sure would be curious to see what it would look like!

this shit seems to be very true. A company has aquired the rights to it.

I just ask myself: what kinda game is that? of course kIll bill would be a martial arts or samurai fighting game, but what game could you make for reservoir dogs???

Didn’t see it mentioned it here yet so I thought I’d post.

Apparently there’s gonna be a game based on Reservoir Dogs.

Can’t imagine how that would ever do the movie justice, though I guess that’s not the point.

Oh well, now we can all be MrPink heheh.


SCi promises that the game will remain dutifully faithful to the film. It’ll be interesting to see how they do this, since the film limits most of it’s action to a few brief scenes. Along with film’s several shootouts, a number of driving sequences are apparently also in the works, as well as multiplayer deathmatches. SCi has also let slip that you’ll not only be able to play as any of the six Mr. Colors, but also as “key policemen,” which hopefully means “the guy who gets his ear taken off.”<<

I hope they at least make it good and not some shitty cash in. Although RD is pretty old so I wonder why they got this idea to do it 10 years later… hmmm odd.


#6

gaming companies have finally realized that being the villian in a video game equals fun fun fun, and $$$$$$$. you can thank grand theft auto for that. i myself, like the rest of you really hope whoever picks up this property doesn’t fuck it up.


#7

I always thought a RD game would be cool. They could have different scenarios for all of the Dogs. Now if they’ll only do it right…


#8

just… what kinda game would that be??

just think about it. how the fuck can you make a game about this film. a beat-em-up game? a point-n-click adventure? a jump and run? a first-person-shooter? what?



that’s the riddle to me


#9

good question Sebastian.

team play / first person shooter like Ghost Recon / Counter Strike for the bank heist setup/execution, and obviously the cop shoot out. throw in a driving game element for the getaways, and we might have something. but not much. multiplayer would be awesome though.


#10

I read somewhere that its gunna have a multi player on it ova the internet.


#11

Man, this a real fine shit we got here. It’s amazing how video games have developed till today!

I think is pretty easy to come up with a good idea about a RD game. We have some many plots in the story that can make us go through the thrills of any of the characters involved, you know?

I mean, how difficult would be to make a RD video game with a good plot, when I already heard they’re making video games about porn stars?


#12

The only way this could work out is to have some sort of GTA-style Tarantino game.You could play as characters from the movies and do missions for Cabot,Wallace,and Spivey or whoever.Then in one part you play as Freddy and try to catch Marsellus Wallace.Still,I’d rather not see a video game for RD.


#13

I REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT NO RESIVOIR DOGS GAME IS IN THE WORKS. THE SOURCE OF THIS THREAD STARTER IS MOST LIKELY GAME INFORMER MAGAZINE. IN EVERY ISSUE THEY HAVE A SMALL COLUMN DESCRIBING A GAME FOR WHICH THE IDEA IS GIVEN TO THEM BY A READER. FOR EXAMPLE, LAST MONTH’S GAME IDEA WAS FOR MICHAEL JACKSON’S STUNT BABY. ALTHOUGH A GTA-ESQUE RD GAME WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY KICK THE PERVERBIAL ASS, AT THIS TIME IT IS A MERE IDEA.


#14

I’m not very upset about that. They try to make everything into a fuckin video game. Its really getting ridiculous.


#15

I think if there’s one QT related-movie that could be turned into a good game, that’s “True Romance”. Imagine being Clarence and Alabama on the run, driving the Purple Cadillac while the police and the mafia are all chasing you through the streets of California! That would be cool. But RD? I don’t think so…


#16

Sorry if i repeat anything, but i didn’t have a chance to read all the posts Sci is making the game. They are a company that only makes movie games, so hopefully they know what they’re doing. They made the great escape game. I’d like to try it, because they had about as much to work with as they will with RD, so it’ll be interesting to see what they did with it. Like it or not, the ear cutting scene is gonna be fun, or at least funny, as hell. In the game you’ll get to play as all the characters. There will be car chases, shootouts, and you’ll be able to play through the robery. i think it’ll be cool, but that’s just my lame ass opinion.


#17

when is it coming out & on what platforms?


#18

No word yet on when it’s coming out, but it’s not anywhere near ready. I believe it’s coming out for all three, Game Cube, PS2, and XBOX. For me, it’s XBOX all the way.


#19

I heard it’s only coming out for Gamecube. But whatever, I have a Gamecube so I don’t have to worry about shit. Wow, this will be cool, a Tarantino game! I hope they make it full of swearing and blood, just like the movie. ;D


#20

i’ve been curious as to how they are going to do the ear cutting scene. that could be fun or it could suck. hopefully the dancing is mandatory and they use stuck in the middle.



Also, they said you get to play as every character. so i wonder if you get to play as blue and find out what happened to him. they better consult with QT for everything.
