Showed it to a friend of mine... An Orthodox friend... Now that was a reaction worth seeing... I agree with him though, if it's not a joke, I think it's pretty awful.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the web "buzz" and commentary on this thing is just how hard of a time so many people (not just on this site) are having telling whether or not this is serious.

Definitely speaks volumes that, given the current market of religious products, such a ridiculous thing doesn't seem all that far-fetched in many peoples' eyes.

I wonder what we can learn from this.

My reasons for getting excited about FF XIII just keep piling on...

oh wait. Wrong part of my brain.

My reasons for getting back to preaching just keep piling on.

That's better.

HanClinto: I wouldn't say that i don't think it's not farfetched... But I have so little faith in mankind that I wouldn't be TOO surprised if it is real.

Yes, there is a definite problem at times when attempting to decipher what is meant to fictitious from what is meant to be serious.

Well, we'll see tomorrow what it's all about.

It's amazing how much of a reaction is stirred in people through this.

Good question :) Other sites. Just seen a few comments where hatred or anger is really being revealed in a person.

This is actually a viral ad for a game coming out called Dante's Inferno.

Yeah, it was obvious it wasnt genuine, although who knows, maybe they do make it genuine later point.

But point was that the voice play was bit bad for such a massice looking product but that can still happen, but what revelaed the thing was that if you clicked on any of the links on that page, including "Read more" it always brought you to this dantes inferno facebook app.

But actually, i think it had plenty of good ideas and if someone would take some effort it might even work.

For excample lets just take that the worshipping part is similar to these dance mat games, that you do some certain movements and right timing, and better you do it, more points you get, and that way you can get forward on church chairs and also unlock more minigames there.

Although the idea of including this bowing down mat was great in my opinion. I mean, the game should just be done in slightly humorous way and bowing donw to something like that would be quite funny thing actually.

So basically i think making with those controllers dance mat type of game with church flavour could actually work, and it would also be new idea enough if the moves wouldnt be to just push button at right moment, but instead do the right moves with the cross controller.

I was actually slightly disappointed when i clicked on that "Read more" and realised this for sure wasnt genuine, since i would have liked a thing like that to exists, even if it would be in such a ridiculous state as that video showed, since it could have brought some better, working versions of it later.
