A press release promoting the upcoming technopocalypse sim Terminator Salvation: The Videogame (not to be confused with Terminator Salvation: The Movie or Terminator Salvation: The X-treme Bible for Time Traveling Robots) which recently landed in our inbox was a grab bag of mixed blessings. It unveiled the talent which will lend their voices and likenesses to the game -- notable names include hip-hop artist Common, actress Moon Bloodgood, and Rose McGowan, who will voice a role exclusive to the game.

Sadly, the film's star, Christian Bale, wasn't on the list of included voice actors we received. We contacted Mr. Bale for a comment, and received the following (NSFW) response: "WHAT THE (explitive deleted) IS IT WITH YOU? WHAT DONT YOU (e.d.)ING UNDERSTAND? YOU GOT ANY (e.d.)ING IDEA ABOUT, "HEY IT'S (e.d.)ING DISTRACTING HAVING SOMEONE ASK ME ABOUT VIDEO GAMES WHILE I'M WORKING ON A (e.d.)ING SCENE? GIVE ME AN ANSWER! WHAT DON'T YOU GET ABOUT IT? (e.d.)'S SAKE MAN, YOU'RE AMATEUR."

Full presser's after the (e.d.)ing break.
February 20, 2008 – Equity Games Production, Evolved Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and Halcyon Games today revealed that hip-hop artist and actor Common, film and TV actress Moon Bloodgood, and award-winning actress Rose McGowan will lend their voices and likenesses to Terminator Salvation the videogame. This action-packed, third-person shooter is set to be released in conjunction with the highly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures and Sony Pictures film, which opens nationwide on May 22, 2009.

Based on the upcoming "Terminator Salvation" film, Terminator Salvation the videogame offers players the chance to assume the role of John Connor, a soldier in the resistance, battling for survival against the far superior forces of Skynet. Common reprises his film role as Barnes, a humorous ex-football player who manages to crack jokes while battling an army of relentless Terminators. Moon Bloodgood returns to her role as Blair Williams, the confident and attractive resistance soldier who thinks Connor should step up as a leader and isn't afraid to call him on it. Rose McGowan joins the team to voice a role that is exclusive to the game. McGowan plays Angie Salter, a fatalistic ex-elementary school teacher who's still not adjusted to the harsh realities of war.

Terminator Salvation the videogame is a third-person action game with concentrated armed combat against all of the Skynet enemies from the film, while encountering new enemies specifically designed for the game. The game was developed by GRIN Studios, published by Evolved Games, co-published by Equity Games, licensed by Halcyon Games and distributed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
