Good news, The Tester
-- you're off the hook for being the worst idea for a video game-themed game show. Look sharp, Spike TV's recently announced God of War 3
promotion/contest Last Titan Standing
-- you're officially on notice
According to a recent press release announcing the show's casting call, Last Titan Standing
(which airs the night before GoW 3
's March 16 release) pits players against one another for a chance to play the game "before the rest of the world." Kind of a lackluster prize -- what will they be doing to win it? Well, according to the casting call: "The story, puzzles, and straight-up action in God of War 3
will be recreated and YOU can be standing in the midst of the battles."
Thanks, but no thanks, Last Titan Standing
-- all things considered, putting up with pre-order panhandling from our friendly neighborhood GameStop clerk is marginally more bearable than getting our arms ripped off by a minotaur.
