Games Radar is running a hands-on review of the Bad Day LA Demo:
In Bad Day, we controlled the most unlikely of anti-heroes – a former movie producer named Anthony Williams who decided to chuck it all and live the carefree life of a homeless bum. Despite being a big-time Hollywood exec, our hero inexplicably speaks with the thick-tongued Ebonics of a proud fourth grade graduate. We knew it was time to take off our thinking caps – Bad Day L.A. possesses all the subtlety and comedic nuance of getting tasered in the balls.
Nice. One of our internal goals was “make people feel like they’ve been tasered in the balls.” Glad to know we could deliver.
US release date for the game is set for August 29th, 2006. Games Radar will run features every week until the launch. Expect something new from them on the 18th and 25th.

That is the sound of me spitting out my Diet Pepsi while reading that blog post. I’d have to say that was one of the funniest things I’ve heard all day. My wife agrees 🙂
I just downloaded the Bad Day LA demo from MTV and I have good and bad news…
Good news: Extremely fun! Extremely pretty! Extremely funny!
Bad news: Major sound bugs 🙁 No graphics options 🙁
The sound is majorly messed up. The stereo is over exagerated and the music seems to disappear and then get very loud when I move the camera. Also, the resolution is locked? What if I want to turn on anti-aliasing or turn it up?
Anyway, I really want to play the game, but if these problems persist it would totally suck.
OMG Games Radar will be doing weekly features? What, the good gaming websites had nothing positive to say about your game? This is the kind of quality game you get when you use cheap Chinese labour instead of, at the very least, Europeans.
