EA are pushing the boundaries by releasing a sports-based party game for the Wii. But get this: it features celebrities. Celebrities like these: American female singers and people I don’t know. You want a proper list? Alright then:
- Avril Lavigne
- LeAnn Rimes
- Keith Urban
- Nelly Furtado
- Paul Pierce
- Mia Hamm
- Kristi Yamaguchi
- Reggie Bush
- Sugar Ray Leonard
Anyone care to enlighten me on who most of those are? I don’t care enough to look myself. But you might as well have a list of events while I’m at it:
- Beach Volleyball
- Wild Water Canoeing
- Hurdle Derby
- Slalom Showdown
- Cliff Hangers
- Smash Badminton
- Rapid Fire Archery
- Joust Duel
- Arena Dodgeball
- Air Racers
The game – Celebrity Sports Showdown, due in time for Christmas – is part of the EA SPORTS Freestyle sub-brand, for casual sports games.
I should think this is all unbearably awful, but do you know what? I’m half intrigued. The North American-centric celebrity line-up probably means it won’t be as a big a success in the UK as it might have been, but the idea of playing Smash Badminton against Avril Lavigne isn’t intrinsically unappealing. I know it should be, but it isn’t. So kill me.
Mia Hamm has already had her own game. See!
It was actually just Michael Owen’s Soccer re-branded for the US market.
This could be the one chance to fulfill my life’s ambition of inner-tubing against Keith Urban.
I don’t know what inner-tubing entails (mending bicycle tyres?), or who Keith Urban is (the cousin of Bob Rural?) but it has always been a dream of mine..
Hi Jake. Glad to note that the idea of your playing Smash Badminton against Avril Lavigne isnâ€™t intrinsically unappealing. She is a very agile and energetic woman, and would be hard to beat on the badminton court.
Seniors For Avril
Archery is an age old game that requires lots of practice and focus if you want to excel on it. .;~
