Fox has recently announced that they will be developing a new mobile game which will be based on the extremely popular TV series, Family Guy. This particular title is set to be released some time next year, and Fox will be partnering with mobile game developer TinyCo. I guess it is a good thing that the folks over at TinyCo have just picked up around $20 million in funding, as that ought to help them continue their work without any worries about not having enough money. The Family Guy mobile game will not be a game with just Family Guy characters thrown into the mix, but rather, it will come with its very own story line.
It remains to be seen as to just how much of the material will be inspired by the 200 plus episodes of Family Guy that have already been shown off on TV. When you think about it, next year would mark the 15th anniversary of the show, so perhaps this Family Guy mobile game is being worked upon so that it can celebrate this particular milestone. Needless to say, the game itself will be set in the town of Quahog, where all of the beloved characters will feature in it. Will Brian Griffin, the family pet, make it into the game? After all, he was he was killed off from the show recently. Only time will tell. One thing’s for sure, such a game might not seem as though it deserves the Kazuyo experience.
Just when you thought that humans have perfected the art of being in denial, along comes this particular robot telemarketer who actually denies being a robot. TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer received a phone call recently, with an extremely engaging voice who intended to persuade Scherer to bite on a health insurance deal, but Scherer felt that something was not quite right. When asked point blank if “she” was an actual human being or a computer-operated robot voice, “she” claimed that she was real enough, followed by some laughter. Other tests proved to be “her” undoing, however, especially when she could not understand the question, “What vegetable is found in tomato soup?”
Apart from that, when “she” was asked multiple times as to what day of the week it was, all “she” could muster up was the excuse of a bad connection. TIME reporters decided to spend the better part of the next hour to call “her” back, and the robot claimed “she” was Samantha West, with her main goal in life not to terminate John Connor, but to ask a bunch of questions concerning health coverage with hopes of closing a sale after transferring an all too eager customer to an actual person. Creepy, don’t you think so? Definitely not as helpful as the Yana and Bo robots.
