Gaming’s Whacked Out Week: When Dogs Attack Helicopters and Cows Crap on Gamers

Video game publishers and developers, like all other big-business bastards, try all kinds of crazy shenanigans to separate us from our cash. How was the Wii’s blood-all-over-the-kitchen-linoleum gory brawler Madworld promoted? With disembodied dummy arms spread about the streets of London, that’s how.

Still, there’s one thing nobody has tried before (outside of the worst kind of German porn): a commercial featuring a woman being shat on by a cow. Just how bovine bowel movements are supposed to scream buy this game, we can’t quite comprehend, but it’s all in the name of the latest Harvest Moon.

Elsewhere this week, an impressive display of furry fury, as the dog from Call of Duty: Ghosts kicks a helicopter right in the face. Is your Friday morning complete without that? It isn’t.

Kotaku brings us anti-air dogs and crapping cows.
