It was an early ambition for many a young lad to be a stuntman, especially if you came of age in the 1980s and watched Lee Majors in The Fall Guy every Saturday evening. Majors had it all ? the girls, the dream house in the woods, the ability to jump off tall buildings without batting an eyelid. A bit like our Stefan really, apart from the jumping off tall buildings bit.
Well, to return to the point (to actually start to make a point!? ? Ed) our intrigue levels rose a little when we saw the trailer earlier today for Activision/Lionhead?s new expansion to The Movies ? their Hollywood sim title for budding Steven Spielbergs and Quentin Tarantinos.
The Movies: Stunts & Effects Expansion Pack lets you introduce dangerous stunts, astounding visual effects and impressive new sets to your sizzling high concept blockbusters. Plus there?s loads more cool new content, including awards to be picked up in newly created categories, like biggest daredevil stunt performer and best stuntman. Check out the trailer here:
