News comes today, ahead of the massive E3 gaming conference, that fans can expect a videogame version of HBO’s series The Sopranos, as well as Quentin Tarantion’s debut feature, Reservoir Dogs, and the Al Pacino (Cribs staple) classic Scarface. The Sopranos game, which comes on the heels of a great penultimate TV season, is described as such:
Gamers seek to become “made” in the midst of a brewing Philadelphia and New Jersey Mob war. Assume the role of Big Pussy’s illegitimate son, players must carry out orders to prove their allegiance and move up within the family’s ranks.
In addition to Gandolfini, Michael Imperioli (Chistopher), Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts) and Steven Van Zandt (Silvio) have all signed on to offer up their voices and likenesses for the game and dish out orders for the would-be Mafiosos. Series mastermind David Chase also lent a hand in helping to carve out the game’s premise.
No word yet on if you get extra points for punching Lauren Bacall. Now, as for the game versions of Reservoir Dogs and Scarface, click here for the full report. I don’t really play videogames unless they involve Galaga or Mr. & Ms. Pac Man, but these could be cool.
