Battle 40-foot waves, storms, ice and a nearly 100-percent crewmember injury rate in the dangerous hunt for undersea riches on the Bering Sea with the new video game Deadliest Catch Alaskan Storm, to be launched on the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC in April 2008. The game was inspired by Sig, Edgar and Norman Hansen - three brothers who have made their living crab fishing on the Bering Sea aboard their family's fishing vessel, the Northwestern. The Hansen brothers started game development with Liquid Dragon Studios in October 2005.
I am realy excited about this game. I grew up In Alaska on the Kenai Peninsula, right on the water of Cook Inlet, did do a bit of work for the fishing industry there as well, Im also a Scuba divemaster and spend alot of time on the water, only now in California.
So lets see, we have Alaska + the water + real world simulation + stratagy and good looking graphics.... I will probobly be picking this one up.
Oh.. And while on the subject I thought I would throw in my coolest crab related video, what you see is a deep underwater pipe having a section cut out. it looks like the pipe has suction and pulls the crab in, actualy it is the intense pressure of the deep pushing the crap into the pipe...
