  1. SEE Virtual Worlds has announced a massive online Michael Jackson-themed video game for the PC. Did you just do a double take? Yeah, we didn't believe it the first few times either. Planet Michael (no, once again this is not a really late April Fools' joke) is set to launch next year and will be free to play, though it will include microtransaction features, some of which will go to charities. Not only is there a website, but there are also Twitte...

    I'm betting $10 bucks this is either a joke or ultimately a sales pitch for something other than a game. Any takers?

    Why do people who make games like this have to exist, why oh why.... Anyway it might be a good way for advertisement companies to make more money off *****s.

    What, is it make-money-off-Michael-Jackson-because-he's-dead-and-doesn't-give-a-**** season?

    This just makes the gene pool a little more stagnant.

    Can I turn into a robot mech type thing and shoot lasers while rescuing children from mobsters? If it's not like Moonwalker I don't think I'd want to play it.

    Squeezing money out of a dead guys fan base - simply despicable!
    I pity MJ, but, oh well - that's business.

    Well if the gaming industry didn't show its death signs yet this one should have the grave fully dug out.

    Speechless as I may be, I'm still interested in seeing what it actually is lol. I still remember playing moonwalker in the arcades when I was younger. You know, back when Michael was cool and not a raging paedophile lol

    Do you get to have as much plastic surgery, and as many painkillers as your little loving heart desires...? How about boning "Bubbles" the chimp? I hope they work that into the game too.

    I think they're attempting to work West Ham United's club song into the games level changer. I hope they pay you royalties for the idea captain.

    Apparently game developers need publicity, even if it's terrible publicity. Thousands of people will buy this game, and not one of them will be actual gamers.

    Online Moonwalker wouldn't even attract me out of interest.
    I want to know the premise of the game though, what do you actually do in it?
    Will probably be like the matrix online, everyone will want to be MJ.
     
  22. lets see you start out as a child who is abused by your father and end up as a child molester? which family member is riding this casket cash to the bank? I thought child porn was illegal. who the hell are they marketing to?

    There's a rumour that it's going to be an online multiplayer game. I really hope that's true, because it will be the games deathnail before it's ever released.
