Custer's Revenge being remade by Rockstar

Will this remake "unmake" Rockstar?Will this remake "unmake" Rockstar?Just heard on the radio that, of all things, Mystique's 1982 game Custer's Revenge is being remade for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, by none other than Rockstar! Apparently, the company acquired Mystique's IP way back in 2003 and has been sitting on it ever since, and news of their 3D remake has only recently surfaced. The game will obviously arouse great controversy, but it's unclear if even spectacular audiovisuals can make this wretched game playable. For those unaware of the original, the game is "a crude simulation" of one of the most disgusting acts imaginable. It was bad enough even with the highly abstract graphics of the 2600; seeing this game in next gen will be downright horrific.

I, for one, am flabbergasted over this and really wish Rockstar would cool it with the controversy. What next, a remake of Chiller?

A little more coming through

A little more coming through the pipe on this--apparently, this game will ship with a home version of the famous controllers for Atari's 1973 arcade game "Gotcha."

I always wanted to try that to see how it "felt". I wonder if any still exist?

I can't believe this! You all are sickos!

A remake?!?! What is Rockstar's problem!?!? And Matt, you deserve to burn for even posting this sick garbage and giving this game such publicity.

This has made me reconsider my interest in videogames. I now hereby renounce videogames as an evil pastime, and now I am going to join a monastery.
