X-Box 360 types please check out the downloadable demo of Stranglehold. The game is very, very fun and you can shoot EVERYTHING. When I would go into the build room to play it I would piss people off because I had no inerest in catching bad guys, I just like seeing what would happen if I shot random things like bags of ice (rice comes out in a little rice stream-AWESOME).
It's also a really, really good looking game. The art is A+.
This game is about 3 years of some of my freinds lives. I dont' rave about all of Midway's Games but this one is really pretty fantastic.
X-box people should check it out.

I've played the Demo about 200 times. I don't have the cash to buy the full version right now, but i give it 9 thumbs up. It controls well, and the animations are rad and uber-violent. It is a total John Woo experience. I wonder how the multiplayer will pan out. If i had the cash today i would buy this game.
I want to work at Midway you lucky duck!
I got to go to Midway when they were still developing the game, it is too badass.
Not only can you shoot everything, you can kick over tables and use them for cover, swing from the chandeliers, and shoot at baddies while riding a dining cart.

I checked out the demo too. It' a pretty sweet 3rd person shooter. I imagine the online multiplayer will be nutz. I'm am interested to see how the 'bullet time' or whatever it's called will work in online multi.
Do you know if my face was used in any of the character modeling? I thought I had a pretty good henchman/thug face that would be perfect for shooting at.
I too was pictured for this, or at least for Midway something. I scream thug. Is there anyway to find out if I was used too? I would love to shoot myself in a game.
ps. Thanks for the opportunity!

I don't know if you guys got used. If you did, it wouldn't have been your whole face. It would have been your ear lobe or someting. Concept artists take bits and peices of people and somehow maker new, very real looking, fake people.
So at some point you may see a familiar earlobe in a midway game. In fact, you should probably buy every game we make so you can check.

I downloaded this demo on the PSN. It rocks hard. I want to go play it again.

I rented the full version last night. I'm pretty deep in it. I thought it would get repetitive but it hasn't. The storyline is really engrossing, and the levels are very well designed. I'm really enjoying the game. My only issue thusfar is that it is tough to get a multiplayer match. I am digging on it though.

I'm just going to go ahead and start telling people that Saff's face and my face are in the game. They can't prove me wrong...unless they ask Cholley.
Here's how my audition for Stranglehold/Wheelman went that day:
I thought I was just doing a motion capture audition but then after I did all the physical stuff they were like, "Could you do a monologue? We're looking for voice actors too."
Since I'm a well prepared actor I said, "I don't have a monologue ready but I could improvise something."
"Alright, do it."
So I started, "I walked into the room and all I could see was blood." Then I looked at the guys and realized that that's all that I was going to be able to say so I started laughing and said, "Thanks for the opportunity!"
I shook their hands on the way out and they were like "Wow, you improvised that?!"
We all had a good laugh.
I didn't get a callback.
And this lady walked in to audition right after me:
