Turning a TV show into a video game isn’t an easy task. Fortunately for these TV series, two of them started out as books, while the other one already had several video games based on it. These past experiences may help ease the transition. Here are three TV shows that are turning into video games this year that you can check out on Judi Poker Terpercaya along with some other popular and interesting games.
South Park will finally be getting the video game it deserves. The developers behind such games as Fallout: New Vegas are making an old school 2D turn-based style RPG. Players are a new kid in town who quickly gets caught up in all of South Park’s crazy hi-jinx. Show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are writing the game’s script and doing the voice acting. With their level of involvement and love of video games, the title should be just what fans want. It’s slated to come out later in 2012 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Without a doubt, it will be rated M.
Game of Thrones
While Game of Thrones started as a book, it’s the HBO show’s popularity that helped the RPG video game become a reality. It is scheduled to be released on May 15, which is about a month after the premiere of the second season. In the game, players can be two completely new characters. Allister is a Red priest and Mors is part of the Night Watch. There’s also a new location called River spring that’s exclusive to the game. While it follows new characters, the overall story that Game of Thrones fans know and love is still present. HBO is even sharing video to the developers of the game, so the plot parallels the show. The M rated title will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
The Walking Dead
Even though the Walking Dead started as graphic novels, it’s the hit AMC show that made the series a household name. The episodic game will start off just like the books and TV show did, with Rick in a coma. Instead of playing as Rick, gamers get to see what was happening with other characters like Glenn when the zombies first appeared. There’s also a new character named Lee, who teams up with a little girl. The choice is supposed to play a big role, with early decisions affecting events later in the game. The Walking Dead video game will be available for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 in late 2012. It will be rated M.
Hopefully, the games based on these three shows will please the fans. While it’s always difficult to translate a TV show or book into a video game, the level of involvement from the creators should make a big difference in quality.
