    Not something I'd want to see, but it was inevitable.

    Warner enjoys watching Alan Moore suffer, don't they?

    I have no idea why anyone would even think about doing this...


    It's like making a game based on Neil Gaiman's Sandman; there's absolutely no need for it...

    "there's absolutely no need for it..."

    Movie tie-in = Cash

    Anyway, my wish list for Watchmen game:

    Rorsarch being the only playable character
    Rorsarch breaking bones
    Rorsarch eating dogs
    Comedian cameo
    Comedian burning down some random people just because he can
    Title screen having Alan Moore eat his beard

    An FPS based on Sandman would be such a horrible idea that I would absolutely need to play it.

    I'm so upset, thought not too surprised, by this BS that I've actually come up with three snarky quotes on it.

    "Mr. Viedt, the video game company called. They asked what enemies they should put in the Ozymandias downloadable video game. What should I tell them?"

    “Mr. Moore will you sign my DVD of Watchmen Babies? Which of the babies is you favorite?”

    "Moichandising! Moichandising, where the real money from the movie is made! Watchmen-the T-shirt, Watchmen-the Coloring Book, Watchmen-the Lunch box, Watchmen-the Breakfast Cereal, Watchmen-the Flaaaaaaaaame Thrower. (You too can be like the Comedian, kids!)

    And last but not least, Watchmen the doll.
    [pulls string on Rorschach doll]
    “42nd Street: Women’s breasts draped across every billboard, every display, littering the sidewalk. Was offered Swedish love and French love, but not American love. American love; like coke in green glass bottles, they don’t make it anymore.”

    Uh.. ask you parents for one today?"

    Actually, considering I have a 18inch talking Leonidas do.. er.. action figure as well as a smaller V for Vendetta one, I have to confess some hypocrisy there. What better way to discuss a book / movie about fighting authority than paying AOL Time Warner for a toy made by Chinese morlock labor? Huzzah. Hello, my name is Xenos. I’m an addict to these petroleum products known as action figures.

    Also, as a side note, most of these simplified downloadable games are crap. Hurm. When do we get Atlas Shrugged or Catcher in the Rye as a mini-game I can play on my cellphone?

    Actually, there was some Watchmen merchandising back in the late '90s. I bought a Rorshach t-shirt, which mysteriously got put in my rag bag years later, which I discovered too late while shining my shoes with brown shoe polish. Also, there was a set of prints of the cover artwork and promo ads that I still have. And there was even a Watchmen wristwatch, which I declined to get. Also, DC allowed publication of a Watchmen adventure for their DC rpg at the time.

    Honestly, as much as I respect Alan Moore's work, I couldn't care less about his opinions on these things. He comes across as an arrogant dick.
    Life is but a dream.

    Meeps? MEEEEEEPS!
