Forget all that stuff you're hearing about healthier video games and get ready for "Major League Eating: The Game."
Game publisher Mastiff is releasing the title May 12 on Nintendo's downloadable game service, WiiWare. This is just the sort of offbeat game that the console services should enable; check out Ben Romano's Monday story for more on these opportunities.
From Mastiff's release:
"The game features the world's greatest gurgitory athletes competing across a variety of foods and venues. Built much like a classic fighting game and deeper than a Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, MLE: The Game requires players to master a smorgasbord of offensive and defensive weapons, including bites, burps, belches, mustard gas and jalapeño flames while cramming and chewing food at a world-class pace. It's not for the faint of heart, the slow of reflex, or those with an overly strong aversion to a Technicolor reversal of fortune."
Can't wait, but I'm a little offended they didn't include an oyster-eating event.
