I do not know if I have ever expressed my interest in mixed martial arts in this blog but let me tell you now – it is one of the most exciting spectator sports for me. Perhaps it is due to the fact that I am a frustrated martial arts person. I cannot call myself a martial artist – the extent of my experience is limited to basic taekwondo classes in grade school – but I do know that watching the UFC has become one of my habits as an adult. This is on top of playing video games, of course.
That is why, when I read something about Randy Couture being in a video game, I was elated. At first I thought that it would be a mixed martial arts video game. I couldn’t have been more wrong, though. Impact Wrestling has a write up on the new version of Command & Conquer, which features a power packed cast of characters:
Poised to be one of the best strategy games of 2008, Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 blends the over-the-top humor the series is known for with exciting new real-time strategy innovations. With three fully co-operative, story driven-campaigns, and an unprecedented emphasis on naval gameplay, the game will delight fans and strategy novices alike. Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 also features the Command & Conquer franchise trademark live-action movie sequences starring one of the largest and most talented casts in the history of video games, including Gemma Atkinson, Gina Carano, Randy Couture, Tim Curry, Kelly Hu, Jenny McCarthy, Jonathan Pryce, Autumn Reeser, J.K. Simmons, Peter Stormare, and George Takei.
Both Carano and Couture have also been featured on game cards prior to the release of the actual video game.
Ahh, I have to get my hands on this.
