    Sure, I'm offended, but I'm not surprised.. Fight Club, while a wonderful movie with a poignant message about commercialism and human psychology, was made in Hollywood, and not by a small indie director. Anything made in Hollywood is subject to sufficient whoring in order to make some people a few bucks. Artistic integrity is usually the last thing people in that industry take into account. That's why independent publishers exist (something our little hobby seriously needs to keep it vital.) And let's face it, there's definitely a market for this. I'm sure every 17-29 year-old male with an X-box loved this movie.

    What I find more horrifying is the Scareface game. Thats what truly terifies me.

    And yet we continue to buy like the good consumers society has made us to be. What's the difference between the Fight Club game and any other? Nothing, except that it acts as an acute reminder that we never acted on Tyler Durden's words.

    Well obviously some of you are, because you are all here!

    Ahem. Does anyone else think that any Fight Club merchandise is hypocritical? In Fight Club's defense, they did hide their merchandise for sale on a hidden menu on the DVD, but they were still fucking expensive.

    But if the message was concerning anti-commercialism, why they selling shit to make money? Unless of course, the film studio is indeed giving all proceeds to anti-commercial terrorists organizations to stay true to the film.

    Balls to Number 5 (alive!), I want to play as Steve Gutenberg!

    Hopefully a "Three Men and a Baby" and a "Police Academy" game aren't too far behind. Speaking of which . . . http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418068/

    So what's up with this Fight Club game? Is it just a fighter vs. fighter style game a la "Street Fighter?" Or is there more too it?

    From what I've seen, it's a pretty standard brawler with characters and stages from the movie. You can break limbs but that seems to be the only unique feature. Fight Club is my favorite movie, but this game just looks really generic and not even true to the movie -- they call Ed Norton's character "Jack", but he doesn't have a name, he's just credited as "narrator".

    Fight Club was about a man so insane and consumed with self-loathing that his hatred for his life came out. It was about someone who felt that he was so despicable and worthless, the only way that he could ever become someone good would be to rise from the ashes of his ruined life like a phoenix. It was about someone so selfish that he didn't care who he destroyed in his pursuit of this goal.

    I'm totally amused by people who come out of Fight Club seduced by the anti-capitalist "fuck the man" screed got it all completely backward. Fight Club condemns that kind of thought, it doesn't glorify it.

    Anyway, the game looks like ass and also misses the point of the story entirely.

    I'm totally amused by someone who doesn't seem to realise that a film can be about more than one thing at the same time. Fight Club is about anti-consumerism (which, incidentally, is not *entirely* the same thing as anti-capitalism ..) and also about personality disorder. And many other things too ..

    It doesn't exactly 'condemn' anything. Nor does it really glorify anything much. It pits an individual at the end of his tether against a world gone mad, and observes the unpleasant results. If anything it condemns both the way the world works, and human nature.

    But of course, you are entitled to your own interpretation .. however wrong it may be

    Uh, wouldn't every beat-em-up be a 'Fight Club' game?

    I guess perhaps if you need more overt fascism than your typical Steets of Rage or Final Fight game. then you'd want Fight Club. Sorry, pass.
