The new issue of UK PlayStation 2 magazine "PSW" has the official trailer for the Futurama video game on its DVD, and it looks quite good. All the voice artists from the TV show are the same in the game, which is good. Graphically, I'm not too keen on the cel-shading with big black outlines, but it isn't that bad. Seems there are going to be alot of cut-scenes in the game too.

This is promising news. I don't have a PS2, but I do have a DVD player, and I was just wondering, do you think it would be worth buying the magazine just for the trailer? smile

I'd say its worth it. The trailer lasts for a good few minutes anyway, plus there are other non-game related things on the DVD, like movie trailers yada yada

The magazine is a good read too, even just for the funny editorials, haha

Can't really go wrong for 4

EDIT: its issue 39 btw, came out today, just incase some dodgy newsagents are still selling last months

Thanx for your help Mattt, I'll probably buy the mag   smile I wonder if that's the same trailer as what will probably be on the Season 3 DVD's? I guess only time will tell.

Did I miss something here? Why is this being so highly touted in the UK and not here in the US? Even the release information that was posted awhile ago was for European release. Anyone know if this is going to be released concurrently with the US or released here after the UK release or what?
Also, I would guess the DVD trailer is veiwable on R2 players only?

I have MSN IM but I am not at a machine where I can access it (I'm at work). Just email me and I will respond right away to it. Otherwise I should be available in the next hour or so at my IM address.

PSW does not suck young man! Maybe its the British humour or something.

As for the official mag, the one we have over here is 6, which is a bit much for a handful of playable demo's i don't want every month, and a crap magazine

The PSW in Australia could be a different magazine published by a seperate company that has purchased the rights to use the title.

I wouldn't mind a playable demo for PC (or for Mac, which would rock, but that's never going to happen)...

how would i rip it? is there special software you download or summin? i'm not up to scratch on naughty internet things, apart from roms    smile

EDIT: i think i've done it, but it has saved it a .vob format. i don't have a clue how to change it to MGEG or whatever. Apparently all PC DVD players can read .vob, so would that do?

Nope, noting that all the contributors are British and they frequently comment on things from a distinctly British perspective. But I can't comment on it's quality too much, as I've only read the one copy my brother bought a couple of months back. There's just no way a single format magazine can be objective, in my opinion.

Cool, thanks for posting that link.  Looks nice, but I think they could still make it better.  Some of the cel-shading looks a little rough, but still good.  I can't listen to sound right now, but I'm sure that the original voices are going to be used, and that's definitely going to be a plus (it was the only real high point in those recent simpsons' games).  As an 'avid gamer', I think that they could work on a few things, i.e. more consistant frame rate, and hopefully more variety.  Looks kind of Crash bandicoot-ish with the platforming and all.  And I think the camera is too close, cause fry looks huge.  But I'm just nitpicking, cause I love Futurama, and I love video games =)

Wow, those graphics look truly terrible.. It's got nothing to do with them being cell-shaded - they're just horribly jagged.  Games like Zelda: The Wind Waker show how well cell-shading can be done, but, yet again, it looks like the game's creators have taken the opportunity of making easy money by doing a rush job on a licence that's bound to sell quite well on the name alone (like with all the terrible Simpsons games).  The fact that it's more likely than not been made for the PS2 and then ported to the XBox and GameCube will mean that the graphics will stay sub-par on all systems.

I know that graphics aren't everything, blah blah blah, but in this day and age, jagged graphics like this are unacceptable.  I imagine that it will play horribly, too, being a cheap licenced game, but no doubt I'll buy it, play it, and return it, what with it being a Futurama game.

It's being released on PS2, GameCube, XBOX and PC, so don't cry...   smile

You will have to wait for six months after the PS2 release though (assuming you're in Europe).
