Deadliest Catch is actually a great show. Grizzled ocean-fearers brave some of the harshest ocean conditions in the world to bring home buckets of crawling, clawed gold – the crew members on Alaskan crab fishing boats stand to make upwards of $30K each (in just over a week, often) with some luck. Without luck, there’s a fair chance that the last thing they’ll breathe in will be a mouthful of frigid sea water.
Exciting, right? So the game, Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm should be too… shouldn’t it? I guess if you like gathering provisions, hiring crew members, plotting courses, dropping baited traps, managing time, and looking at menus. Maybe they’ll make an add-on that includes pining for women.
I'm not doubting that Cesar Millan is a brilliant dog trainer. And Nintendogs sold well, right? So hey guys, oh my god, I have such a good idea... let's make a game based on Dog Whisperer! Yeah, 'cus... money, right?
