Disaster: Day of Awesome
If someone asked me to name the three greatest movies ever made while, at the same time, not in any way telling the truth, I'd absolutely have to say Daylight, Cliffhanger and Dante's Peak. Which is why the forthcoming Wii title Disaster: Day of Crisis is pushing all the right buttons for me. No zombies, no aliens, just all disasters, all the time.
It's giving me a real Snakes on a Plane vibe. Despite being, apparently, stuffed full of more gameplay mechanics than a Raving Rabbids title, it's made out of win. I'm sure that the final product is going to be so ball-breakingly terrible that you simply have to love it, and punch anyone who disagrees.
Just to recap, in case you weren't paying attention to the trailer, you get to outrun a tidal wave, disarm a bomb, dodge meteors and fight a bear all in the same game.
