IGN has been running a series of "Director's Diary" regarding the DS' survival-horror game Dementium: The Ward. We're still confused by what's really going on in the series, but the main point is the latest entry is about the video "Rx," a promo for Dementium that allegedly got into trouble with the ESRB. There's a series of email exchanges between the mysterious "Director X" and Mike Wilson of Dementium's publisher Gamecock. Beyond the ESRB issues, apparently Nintendo sent over an email asking, "Well....This one's a little over the top. Can you take out the loss of bodily functions (bladder, bowel and stomach); or, remove the Nintendo DS hardware?"
The edited version can be found above. The link for the unedited version can be found after the break along with the rest of the promo videos in the series, which mix in-game footage with live-action. Oh, and before the freakin' Spielbergs get all uppity, the reason it looks "cheap" is because it was apparently done on "3k for 11 movies in 8 weeks or whatever the hell it is" according to "Director X." Beyond these marketing videos, we're keeping an eye on Dementium which releases Halloween because it could do well based on our time with it.
