Your dad is a big pussy, er, was Big Pussy

MTV News carries the announcement of the “Sopranos” videogame today, one which will “allow players to interact with, but not control, key members of the crime family, including Tony, Christopher Moltisanti, Silvio Dante and Paulie Walnuts.”

No word, though, as to whether those characters will be actually voiced by their alter-ego thesps, or impersonators – a fairly important facet, given the character-driven narrative of the original show. Sopranos-Vincent-Pastore-Pleads-Guilty-2.jpg

What really impresses us about the announcement isn’t the deal for the game, but how the flack for game publisher THQ explained the game:

“If anyone was a fan of the show, those situations that really mount to that spine-tingling, sh–‘s-about-to-happen moment, that will be in the game,” THQ spokesperson Tom Stratton told MTV News.

“Shit’s about to happen?” Ma-donn! Now, this is a flack we could have a beer with. No talk of maximizing the core demographic or any other newspeak. Most Hollywood flacks won’t confirm it’s 75 degrees outside.

We’re buying our copy today.

She-eet.
