In today’s modern age of gaming developers will often base their creations on real people. In the past it was jarring to see an “actor” pop up as a video game character, especially if they were were relatively well known. Can you imagine the nightmare of plopping in Super Mario 4 and seeing a CG version of Danny Devito hurling fireballs from his swollen quasi-dwarven finger tips?
Today while gobbling up my lunch provided by 7-11 (note: don’t leave your delicious lunch at home) I stumbled across the trailer for Leviathan: Warships, a new turn based strategy title from Paradox Interactive. Not only is the trailer unlike any video game trailer that I’ve ever seen in all my years, it nearly made me choke on a preservative filled lump of processed mystery food. It was that funny! Turn based strategy is something we love here at NA, and Leviathan: Warships appears to be a bold new entry into the genre. Look for a full review of Leviathan: Warships on episode 103 of Rated NA, coming very soon. Also, I think I spelled “leviathan” incorrectly every single time while writing this article… F*#k, did it again.
