Saddest Picture You'll See Today

August 12, 2008 -

In this Associated Press photo by Maya Alleruzzo, U.S. Army Capt. Charles Ford plays an unknown video game with Wa'ad, a seven-year-old Iraqi boy who lost an arm and leg to an IED near Muqdadiyah, about 60 miles north of Baghdad. From the AP report:

Soldiers from Hammer Company, 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment are arranging for the child to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.

Re: Saddest Picture You'll See Today

To be fair, it looks like its on a boot leg console.

Who is the genius that wrote this article?  If you don't know Mario at the drop of a hat, you shouldn't have anything to do with the game industry...  Don't sadden me like that.

Re: Saddest Picture You'll See Today

Nah, That a pretty iconic Mario level. And it looks like they aren't even gonna use the warp tubes.

Re: Saddest Picture You'll See Today

Yeah, I recognise that Mario level from anywhere. If I recall correctly, it should be World 1, Level 2. The same world with the Minus World Glitch.

No, I noticed it right away too... At first I thought their playing an ancient console game was why it was sad, then I noticed the kid was missing a couple of limbs. =\

IronPatriot"We announced DOAX3 (Working Title) today, but it will be made exclusively for Japan and Asian market."08/03/2015 - 2:59pm
IronPatriotNope- Asia only https://www.facebook.com/deadoralivegame/posts/71671695509905908/03/2015 - 2:59pm
Andrew EisenYeah, that's all I've seen as well.08/03/2015 - 2:59pm
IronPatriotAndrew, I saw that Dead or Alive Xtreme was announced for Japan And Asia, but no explicit refusal to sell in the West. It is not uncommon to get an Asian announcement first.08/03/2015 - 2:58pm
IronPatriot@ Ivresse, TotalBiscuit chose to lie about the women Gamergaters were harassing, adding fuel to their harassment, including a lot of lies about Gamergate victims like Sarkeesian. Shame on him and his worshipers.08/03/2015 - 2:55pm
Andrew EisenIanC - I've seen no such announcement. Got a link? But, if that's true, it's a damn shame because I know people on this side of the pond who enjoy the series.08/03/2015 - 2:52pm
IronPatriotZippy, you are right that gamergate is bad, but the “core ideals” were harassment from the start. The “ethics” lie is a thin patina of gold leaf on the steaming turd which is gamergate.08/03/2015 - 2:51pm
IanCYou lot happy that we won't get the new Dead or aLive Xtreme game in the west?08/03/2015 - 2:36pm
NatirEnjoy your description. It is more funny to click the steam link though.. it is SFW.... "Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015: Do You Still Shower With Your Dad?" is a fast paced shower-simulation where you shower with your 8-bit dad. It's good, clean fun!08/03/2015 - 12:28pm

Big PermIt's a link to a game where you're a naked child around a bunch of naked dudes. Indies must be stopped08/03/2015 - 11:17am
Andrew EisenAs always folks, please give some indication of what you're linking to as well as who.08/03/2015 - 11:15am
NatirIf someone linked this, sorry. I kind of laughed and I figured some may get a kick out of this... Really weird and creepy though. http://store.steampowered.com/app/359050/08/03/2015 - 11:12am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.ign.com/articles/2015/08/03/new-article-about-konami-suggests-grim-situation-at-company well hopefully they will get out of game development after mgs508/03/2015 - 11:05am
IvresseSeriously IronPatriot, you're worse than a Daily Mail reader.08/03/2015 - 10:51am
Ivresse@IronPatriot: Will you stop lumping TotalBiscuit into this whole Gamergate issue, it's lying numpties like you who make up your own bullshit to justify your hatred to begin with that screw the internet up in the first place...08/03/2015 - 10:49am
ZippyDSMleeMost social justice is great but some of it is so stupid it taints the whole thing into triple negatives. A shame most of the gamergate stuff is bad...the core ideals are not bad it just jumped the shark and the n ut cases came out of the wood work..08/03/2015 - 10:07am
ZippyDSMleeJim dives into the red ash controversy , http://www.thejimquisition.com/2015/08/1876/08/03/2015 - 10:03am
IronPatriotSeriously people, do not believe crap spread by those who think "social justice" is an insult or that its a good idea to join a movement created for harassment. Like your gamergate hero TotalBiscuit.08/03/2015 - 9:32am
