Default Family Guy, first pics and info

August 29, 2006 - Stewie's ray-gun clips an attacking helicopter and plummets toward the earth. It crashes in a flaming ball of wreckage on the lawn of Glen Quaqmire, who stands in shock on his front porch, the rotors still spinning.



"My God! My lawn," Quagmire screams. "That's not what I meant by a bush cut!

And so it went, our first milk-snorting laugh with Family Guy. Product Manager Roozbeh Ashtyani of 2K Games stopped by for a few minutes to show off the first three levels of the game, based on Seth McFarlane's insanely witty show on Fox.



"This sucks worse than that time I went to that museum."

The full-cast has signed on to add voice talent, as well as the writers of the show. Only this time around, there are no nit-picking, skirt-wearing broadcast censors to stifle MacFarlane's genius. Ashtyani called Family Guy, "too raunchy for TV." The ESRB is calling Family Guy "M for Mature." We're calling Family Guy "effing funny."

Brian, Stewie and Peter are the three playable characters, although Stewie can use mind-control on Quagmire to harass nurses. Or you can take control of Death -- voiced by Adam Carolla -- to kill them.

The storyline as we understand it is like a 15-hour long episode of Family Guy, complete with trademarked non sequiturs. For instance, Peter will remark, "This is grosser than the time I..." Whereas in the TV show we would flash to some unrelated absurdity, you actually get to play it in the game. These "interactive non sequiturs," if you will, are basic mini-games that will allow Stewie to upgrade his ray-gun and Bryan to upgrade his stealth.

Oh yeah, each character plays completely different. Brian has been accused of impregnating Seabreeze Pewterschmidt, the prize-winning Greyhound of Carter Pewterschmidt, Lois's father. Carter has Brian jailed, and it's Brian's job to sneak out of the Quahog jail -- and the shower room, if you know what I mean -- gather evidence and prove his innocence. His missions are of the stealth variety.



"I'm already shooting at a fifth grade level!"

Stewie uses his ray-gun and mind control helmet to zap everyone. He also is after Bertrand, his evil half-brother. Stewie's quest will take him to the Quahog hospital and into Peter's testicles. Fans of the show know what we're talking about and, as such, will love it.

Peter has suffered significant head-trauma and now believes that Mr. Belvedere is trying to kill his family. Peter then stalks the Quahog streets, punching children and the elderly, trying to eat their cookies. Eventually Peter will fill his snack meter and unleash a devastating snack attack special move. Down the line Peter will dress up like a prostitute and meet his cronies Quagmire, Cleveland and Joe.

In the short time we saw Family Guy, we laughed and we laughed hard. The game appears very simple and accessible, at this point, like a children's game with mature content. There is no multiplayer support, but it's the kind of game that makes you want to just sit back, crack a beer with a friend, and just watch. Visually, it doesn't look exactly like the show because the characters are rendered in 3D in the same way the old Simpsons games were. Still, the fun here is in the snappy dialog that will surely hook fans of the show.

2K Games will be back at IGN next week to give us some hands-on time. Until then, you'll have to click on the Images link below for a host of new screens, including the inner-workings of Peter's testes.

I lost interest in Family Guy. It's not as funny as I originally thought it. I'll stick with South Park and Venture Bros.

Hopefully they will make a PS2 version because my girl would play that more than she plays The Sims 2.
