Video Game Quote of the Day

Shhh...he's working undercover
“Juarez called and he said you're a dipshit.”
—Justin McElroy, addressing the makers of Call of Juarez: The Cartel
Listen to the whole discussion starting at 58:10 on Joystiq Podcast 169.

Poor Call of Juarez. You were a pretty fun series of Old West shooters, but then Red Dead Redemption came along and pistol-whipped you on the bean. And, apparently, you staggered your way into modern-day LA.

Dragging the series into the modern world (and inexplicably adding Halle Berry and Ice-T to the cast) is just a plain old bad idea, especially after Red Dead's crazy success. Also, I'm pretty sure an actual cop dressed like that would be sent to a psychiatrist.
