Fatal Inertia

Fatal Inertia will be one of the Playstation 3’s first titles. It’s being touted as a “futuristic racing game”, in which you whizz around canyons in super-fast aircraft blowing the other competitors out of the sky. So basically, a cross between WipeOut and the “pod racing” scene from Star Wars.

But what on earth were they thinking when they came up with that name? A while ago, myself and my friends came up with a “Random Shit Movie Generator” - take one ridiculous adjective, couple it with an absurd noun, throw on a couple of shit stars, and add a horrible tagline, and you’ve got the makings of a completely shit movie.

Example: **Outlawed Fortunes** _"Ready or not, here he comes"_ starring Rutger Hauer & Beverly D'Angelo

Is that what the Playstation 3 is going to be about? The gaming equivalent of a straight-to-video movie?
