With the recent release of the Prince of Persia movie came the fourth installment in the Prince of Persia videogame series, entitled Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. I mentioned this in a news article a few months ago, before I started making up news completely; this game is in the style of the GameCube/PS2/Xbox-era Prince series, and it takes place during the seven-year gap between Sands of Time and Warrior Within.
I haven’t heard anything about this game yet, so I decided to see if anyone has anything to say about it. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of using Google to look for a review. We have learned from countless installments of “Be Careful What You Search For” that using Google is never a good idea. Why? Because when I did a search for “new Prince of Persia game,” this came up:
I’m going to hope this is just some sort of cruel prank instead of something that really exists. When will these Lego people stop torturing me with their onslaught of G-rated versions of non G-rated movies? Is Lego: The Godfather next? Why does every Lego game feature more grunting than Season Three of Dragon Ball Z? Why aren’t any of their jokes actually funny? I don’t know, and I wish the Lego people would leave me alone, because right now, I’m swamped by Lego videogame ads on every website I visit. Apparently Google (there it goes again!) says I’m their target audience.
Conclusion: The new, realistic Prince of Persia game is called Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The new, unrealistic one is called Lego Prince of Persia: Please Let Me Forget This Ever Happened.
