Here's a perfect example of why there needs to be freer communication between the press and game publishers. This morning, Southpeak
announced that it would be releasing Sled Shred
on the Wii, a downhill racing game that takes advantage of the Wii Balance Board. More importantly, though, the release stated that players would race "with and against the world-renowned Jamaican Bobsled team."
Springing into action, we asked the most obvious, important questions:  Will Doug E. Doug appear in the game?  Will zombie John Candy appear in the game?  At any point, will someone say "Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, its bobsled time!"? Get this: We still haven't gotten a response from Southpeak. Guess we'll have to wait until Fall 2009 to find out for ourselves.
