Today’s new Pain announcement on PlayStation.Blog is not what anyone was expecting, to coincide with the release of the newest expansion, the movie studio, Knight Rider and Baywatch star David Hasselhoff will be added as a playable character.
The sensation from Germany has even recorded a cover of Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” for the game, which will perhaps introduce those, like myself, who were unaware that The Hoff even had anything resembling a music career, to his musical masterpieces.
I’m hoping this opens the floodgates to more celebrities making their way into Pain. While there’s no way to actually injure your character in the game, it would be pretty amusing to watch Conan O’Brien fly through the skies before crashing into a giant bowling ball.
