I guess this hit Kotaku with something of a thud. I can kinda see why, but I would guard against judging it too harshly. It smacks of "we got some models and anims, so why not push out a trailer??"
Course, I've also never found the fruit fscker all that funny - so I might just be missing out on something. I just hope, based on the pants Tycho wears in the game, that they aren't taking themselves too seriously here.
I had always hoped someone would make either a game comic game and turn it into a series of game parodies. Maybe someone still will.
