Default The Boondock Saints Video Game debuts at SXSW


Most of the Boondock Saints Video Game panel at SXSW Interactive's Screenburn Arcade did not actually have much to do with the video game based on the Boondock Saints. Rather, a good 45 minutes of the 48-or-so minute-long presentation was dedicated to a Q&A in which stars Sean Patrick Flanery (Connor MacManus), Norman Reedus (Murphy MacManus) and David Della Rocco (Rocco) fielded questions from the franchise's most diehard fans.

These questions, for the most part, largely concerned propositions towards the panel's hosts, or requests for the reciting of lines from the films. A young woman requested a hug from one of the men, the woman who followed requested a kiss, and the next asked if one of the men wanted to "do something later." It was an altogether disquieting sexual arms race.

The only detail about the game to come from the event is that it would feature the vocal talents of Flanery, Reedus and Rocco, who hope to be involved in the creative process as development moves forward. An all-too brief trailer followed the rambunctious Q&A, showing off just thirty seconds of a grimy alleyway, and a still shot of the two protagonists(?) dishing out their trademark execution to a mark. An off-screen video of the trailer is posted below.

Little late in posting about this, but that trailer didn't exactly bring my hopes up for this game, if anything, it made them drop. Hopefully that video is like a pre-alpha version of it or something, because it looked like shit.

Has there even been anymore information at all on this game?

Wasn't The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct embarrassment enough for Norman Reedus? Why would they ruin the other great thing he's known for...

Well as you can see it was announced 2 years ago and still hasn't seen light so you may be okay. I'd much rather see a third film than a game anyway.
