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.

Andrew EisenAs it happens, Chinatown Wars is the only GTA game I've played.04/19/2014 - 10:43am
Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm
Matthew Wilsonthis is worth a whatch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyXcr6sDRtw&list=PL35FE5C4B157509C904/18/2014 - 3:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
Matthew WilsonAgain the consequences were not only foreseeable, but very likely. anyone who understood supply demand curvs knew that was going to happen. SF has been a econ/trade hub for the last hundred years.04/17/2014 - 2:45pm
