Dream of Becoming a Professional Gurgitator?

Well if you've got a Nintendo Wii, your dream may soon come true with the release of their Major League Eating: The Game title.

The game aims to bring you the world of competitive eating to the comforts of your own living rooms.

Why you ask? Why would anyone want to pretend to be a competitive eater?

Well according to the press release,

"Professional gurgitators have the grace of ballerinas yet the brute strength, mental focus, and intestinal fortitude to push their bodies and minds as hard as athletes in any other extreme endurance sport. Victory is sweet and defeat can be well, really, really messy. It's an experience we're proud to help bring into the home."
So it's on the Wii, will you have to swallow the controllers?

Nope. But you will have to,
"master a smorgasbord of offensive and defensive weapons including bites, burps, belches, mustard gas and jalapeño flames while cramming and chewing food at a world-class pace"
How lovely.

  1. Just found your blog - my husband, coincidentally a video game programmer, had me call the doctor today to get him an appointment to get professional advice about his obesity issues - not having luck on his own, try as he might.

    Some say violent video games make people more violent - probably with children, but I don't see it in balanced adults. It's more of a stress releaser, a catharsis. Perhaps this food eating game can be a cathartic replacement for actual eating, maybe it's a good thing?

    Or maybe it's just a big $50 burp joke.

    I just found your blog and will be a weekly reader. I find the whole idea of this game to be totally disgusting. What ever happened to kids going outside to play? It seems as though all kids want to do is sit on their behinds with controllers in their hands. Parents today need to take a bit more responsibility for their children and their health.

  3. This games actually sounds disgusting. Not only are we overweight, now we have games that can teach us how to be overweigth. Pathetic
