hail to the chimp

Portions of the Hail to the Chimp website to promote Wideload's upcoming party game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that were previously "coming soon" have just opened. "Meet the Candidates" takes a look at five of the characters, "The Campaign Trail" is a screenshot gallery, and "Campaign Videos" shows the game's first trailer. The entire site is in Flash, so I can't direct link to those pages, so just visit chimplove.com and find your own way from there.

Alexander "The Man" Seropian (or should it be "The Chimp" from now on?) throws poop at GameSpot today about Wideload's upcoming party game for the Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3.

Is there going to be political satire? Yes, says Seropian. The Bush:Chimp comparisons are obviously unavoidable, but am I the only one who thinks the hippo looks like Steve Ballmer?
