Ah, the ways in which they go about promoting movies these days. Just got an email from these people who set up a new online game built to pimp out the DVD release of Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. The game itself isn't much of a game as it is a gimmick, but you do need to be over 18 to play (though this one is based on the honor system). Basically, you can upload an image of yourself into the character they provide and are sent on a first-person mission through what appears to be some sort of human meat locker. You then move your soldier through the room, while an Alien scurries across the wall.

Then it gets interesting.

Both an Alien and a Predator catch you, hang you up on the door and begin to slowly rip apart your limbs. Remember, the image you uploaded can now be seen, and, well, it's all sort of creepy. They give you the option to kick and punch while you're hanging there, but c'mon -- kicking and punching is not going to stop these beasts from dissecting you one limb at a time. It's quite the gory online promotional item, hence the need to be over 18 -- so be aware that there's blood, guts and your sad sack of a face all mixed together. Definitely worth a pop in ... feel free to use the face of an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend and have a ball.

The DVD for Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem hits shelves on April 15.
