The New Meat - 2014-01-04

It's hard to overstate how much hoopla there was over this game in the late 90s. Computer Gaming World wrang a whole year's worth of material out of the fact that Dennis Hopper's character was named "Mr Beautiful."

LATE 90s? This was early 90s. '94 I believe.

Truly these graphics were light years ahead of their time for you to have mistaken!

94 would be the mid-nineties YOU IDIOT

Oh shit I've been exposed!

Warning: the photo realism of this game WILL make you kill people in the real world. Also the opening theme is one of NIN better songs, for sure.

Whoo boy.
If you are really into 20 minutes of exposition, here's part two where you get to hear about demon/human porn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN6PYk1sYrk

Truly this is the future of videogames.

This game was really weird in that it was an adventure game with almost no item puzzles. Around 90% of the puzzles were decoding cyphers.

The plot was also pretty ridiculous. It was supposed to be that the portal to hell opened up and demons walked/ruled the world. Religious zealots take power using "proof" that hell exists. You can get sent to hell, but only when sedated and hooked into flimsily disguised VR machine.

So then the game reveals the BIG TWIST that hell is just a VR simulation and the demons are just robots! It was all a hoax for religious zealots to take power! Nobody ever questioned how being sent to "hell" was exactly like the existing VR technology, and with all the manpower and logistics behind making and maintaining an army of robot demons, no one ever spilled the beans.

It was the Satanic Loose Change for its time. I blame X Files for the conspiracy obsessed 90s.

Not to mention that ALL of Take 2's games looked like this. They released a similar adventure game called Bureau 13 where the story was pretty much Hellboy. They even made some Wing Commander clone with Poser models running around. Star Crusader I think it was called.

Bureau 13 was a pen-and-paper RPG written in 1983, and the gawd-awful video game didn't get released until 1994-95.

Hellboy was a much more serious take on the idea of the paranormal vs the paranormal, as the video game had a woman in a silver bikini walking around in an egg-shaped mech. Did I mention the video game instructed players to keep a low profile? Yeah....

How dare you mention Take2 and not bring up Ripper SHAME!!!!!!
Definitely in my top 10 computer games of the 90s.

I played the shit out of this game back when I was like 12 or 13. If I recall, Dennis Hopper's in the game for like 2 minutes, but he still gets top billing over Grace Jones. That's cyberhollywood for ya's.

One of Hopper's final roles was Deadly Creatures, the Wii game. Billy Bob Thornton co-starred. (unfortunately they did not voice the spider and scorpion)

Esperma de Mutante - 2014-01-04

With no knowledge of the game itself, 13 year old me read the novelization of this shit stack back in 94 or 95. Even as a fantasy and sci-fi obsessed kid, it was just awful.
