Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

October 29, 2008 -

By now the story of how two innocent lines from the Qur'an delayed Little Big Planet's worldwide launch is well known.

While the delay made eager LBP fans sad, 2P Start webcomic has some fun with the fiasco. Click here for the full comic.

GP: Thanks to sharp-eyed GP correspondent Andrew Eisen for the link.

A Hitler Sackboy is WAY more offensive to more people then a song with Quran passeges in it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Ha ha!

It is though this fictional representation of Sony has blundered OUT of the frying pan and IN to the fire, eh chum? As though they thought song lyrics were offensive and then made further misstep by offering a less apropos gift in return!

There's sweet irony! If only the intent of the author in this delightful illustration meant as much as to exagerrate the offensive nature of this censorship inspired delay. Why, Johnathon Swift himself might delight in such a clever horror.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Yet ironically, given the choice between the two, I can guess which more people would want as a download

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Well of course, you can't do unspeakable, horrible things to a background song in the game. The sackboy on the other hand...

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

If you think that most gamers would want to do unspeakable, horrible things to a Hitler sackboy, I'm afraid you've underestimated the gaming community.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Oh come on, how freaking funny would it be to see sackboy Hitler get crushed to death by a giant star of david?

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Amusing no doubt, but I daresay it wouldn't be long until someone uploaded a level that was some sort of mix of hitler fighting his way out of virginia tech, stealing a plane and flying it into the twin towers. Sensitivity is not some peoples strong suit.

Then again your going to get that sort of thing hitler sackboy or not. Perhaps it could be the start of a series of sackboys, available next week, Churchill "we will run about flailing our arms and making amusing faces before jumping on their weak spot, on the beaches"... hasn't got as much of a ring to it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Is there meant to be a joke in that comic strip? I think I must have missed it.

Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
Matthew Wilsonkind of hard to believe since the 3ds is atleast as powerful as the gamecube hardware wise.07/29/2014 - 4:27pm
MaskedPixelanteYes, the 3DS has enough power to run 16-bit emulators, but not at the same time it's running the 3DS systems themselves. You could run the games, but you wouldn't get save states or Miiverse.07/29/2014 - 4:04pm
InfophileRunning GBA on 3DS shouldn't be hard. The DS had flashcarts sold for it that added just enough power to emulate GBA and SNES games, so the 3DS should have more than enough natively.07/29/2014 - 3:37pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's a bunch of people whining about boycotting/pirating Trails in the Sky FC because XSEED didn't license the Japanese dub track, which consists of about 10 lines per character.07/29/2014 - 11:27am
Sleaker@MP - devolver Digital issued a twitter statement saying they would replace the NISA pledge.07/29/2014 - 10:57am

Papa MidnightIt's not bad so far, but I am honestly not sure what to make of it (or where it's going for that matter)07/28/2014 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilsonis it any good?07/28/2014 - 9:36pm
Papa Midnight"Love Child" on HBO -- anyone else watching this?07/28/2014 - 9:27pm
MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
