Why would anyone want be a bully just for the sake of it.
ROCKSTAR GOES BACK TO SCHOOL WITH BULLY
"You can't beat a bit of Bully," says Rockstar as it announces the spiritual successor to Skool Daze
Rockstar has announced the first game in development at its new Vancouver studios - and it might not be exactly what you would expect from the masters of mum-shocking violent videogames.
Bully, due for release on PS2 and Xbox this coming October, is a simulation of the trials and tribulations of high school life, complete with mental bullies, vindictive teachers and mini-skirted bitches trained to break your heart with a flick of their hair. Or maybe that was just our school.
Anyway, it all sounds a bit like Skool Daze, that 1985 Speccy classic where you had to nick shields and jump on teachers to rule the school. There's also a film called Bully but we're reliably informed the game is not connected.
The press release heralding Bully's announcement describes the game as "groundbreaking, innovative and original," with "humorous tongue-in-cheek storytelling" and a "brutally funny" plot.
It does not mention any of the following Rockstar staples: hip-hop, AK-47s, casual criminal violence, carjacking, lowriders, or carjacking lowriders while indulging in some casual criminal violence with an AK-47. Oh, and some hip-hop in the background.
Instead, you'll find yourself as a "troublesome schoolboy" at Bullworth Academy reform school. Given Rockstar's tradition of free-roaming, open-ended gameplay we expect you'll be able to choose whether you make your school days easy or difficult, with appropriate problems connected to each.
Studying hard to make the grades? You might get picked on by the bullies. Cutting class to concentrate on biology with the girls? The teachers might come down on you like a volume of The Complete Shakespeare.
It's a strange choice for a game setting, but the possibilities are actually pretty intriguing. With any luck there'll be fags behind the bike shed, furtive gropes in the stationary cupboard, rampant note-passing during exams, and no end of fire alarm/hose pipe-related pranks.
"We are really excited about the first title to be developed by our Rockstar Vancouver studio," said Sam Houser, Rockstar's president. "We fought hard to keep this title under wraps for ages and I am thrilled that we can finally unveil it to people at E3."
We'll bring you the latest on Bully from E3.[/b]
