Paperboy 3: The Hard Way is the best gaming grindhouse movie never made


If Robert Rodriguez and the Nintendo Entertainment System went out, had a few drinks, danced to a few slow songs, and then kept the party going in the backseat of a 1971 Chevy Nova SS 396*, their resulting love child would look a little something like this grindhouse-inspired trailer for Paperboy 3: The Hard Way.

For you kids, Atari Games’ Paperboy was the Dark Souls of 1980s bicycle newspaper delivery route simulators, beginning with a choice of difficulty levels: Easy Street, Middle Road and Hard Way. Newsflash, they were all hard! But that might have been because I didn’t discriminate between subscribers and non-subscribers when it came to smashing windows.

Anyway, aside from being awesome, this trailer is a pretty accurate depiction of how difficult it was to hold down a paper delivery route in the 80s, what with all the spare tires, open manholes and grim reapers.  Sadly, this trailer is also just a joke. But you can download the totally tubular soundtrack and get your synth on for real.

*I know there’s no backseat to speak of in a 1971 Chevy Nova SS 396, but how much room do you need to copulate with a NES? If you know the answer to that question, please report it to www.fbi.gov/contact-us – there’s a list they’d looooove to add you to!

Our Take
We've all been fairly enamored with The Lego Movie here at Game Informer. You can check out some blogs from editors related to the film here and here. I'm pretty excited that a sequel is in the works (though I do hope the same creative is behind it), and an excuse to make and release even more Lego video games is never a bad thing.
