If you’re old enough, you’ll remember how popular Full Motion Video rail shooter games were; none more so than arcade/laserdisc game Mad Dog McCree – a western-themed shooter filled with grade-A  cheese. Twisted Pixel’s The Gunstringer gets a local release this Friday – and it’s already packing some DLC. Don’t start moaning about ‘em charging for incomplete games though, because this DLC is free – and it’s glorious.

Drawing inspiration and paying homage to Mad Dog McCree, Wavy Tubeman Chronicles is an entirely FMV experience (with multiplayer!) that captures the essence, spirit, and delicious fromage of those games of yesteryear. It’s beautiful – and a pretty compelling reason to get The Gunstringer…hell, even Kinect. Twisted Pixel are of course no stranger to filming themselves doing completely stupid and cheesy, yet endearing video – as anybody who finished the fantastic Ms ‘Splosion Man would tell you. It’s time for  all you former lawmen to show the world your rusty sheriff’s badges.

Hit the jump, watch the video, marvel at Twisted Pixel’s awesomeness.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
