Asgard Heroes: The Nerd Game Of Choice On The International Space Station
|A view much more interesting than anything else you'd see from the Space Station, apparently|
According to a press release, anyway. A press release from NERD CENTRAL.
Astronauts on-board NASA's Orion Space Station recently made an outstanding confession: two of the crew members admitted to play the game Asgard Heroes from orbit. The Orion Space Station Commander Fedor Zastrov and Flight Engineer Rebeca Mendez praised the Stargate game, saying it's good time spent, when they're not working that is.And parents complain about kids with their heads stuck in a Gameboy while driving the scenic route on a vacation? If only there were some interesting views from the ISS.
"I really like this game, confessed Zastrov, it has great potential and being a huge fan of Stargate I couldn't resist the temptation to try it out. And I'm glad I did because it's a lot of fun and makes one thinking of all the possibilities..."
Further information from the astronaut/cosmonaut duo on their depraved addiction to the game was not available, probably because the two were ignoring requests to put the damn game away and lean up their room.
Asgard Heroes, as far as we can tell, is one hell of a macho online game, if that's not oxymoronic enough for you.
The into page goes like this: "Become a Harbinger of Death, for what will come is not yet written...Are you man enough to lead your people to freedom? Are you a hero or a coward? Make a decision now!"
Yeah, we want to be stuck in space for months next to someone with his or her head engaged in that.
Gordon Cooper would weep, is all we can say.

(In case it isn't clear, the press release is a fake -- here are the astronauts now on ISS -- but we like the idea of it.)
