One Final Bush-Bashing Game

January 20, 2009 -

As George W. Bush turns over the reigns to Barack Obama today, online gamers will have their final chance to zing the 43rd president.

Goodbye, Mr. Bush is a whack-a-mole sort of affair in which players hurl objects at a cartoon version of Dubya which pops up in various locations on the White House lawn. Weapons of choice include eggs, candy and, of course, shoes.

The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. But there is one clever moment. Players who choose Weapons of Mass Destruction to hurl at Bush are informed that WMD can't be found.

Hmmm... Where have we heard that before?

The people who are chortling at their own wit for making these games will soon be snarling and screeching whenever anyone dares to disagree with Barack Obama.  Just wait and see that I'm right.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

The internet is certainly having a collective orgasm over his innauguration speech.

Statements like, "I can listen to him speak for days," from straight men are frightening. He's a President, people, not the Second Coming.  And he's the President of one of the biggest and powerful Federal Governments in the history of the world.  Optimism is great, but we must watch our government closely.  If GW  showed up anything, it was that.  I have no issues with what Obama's done as of yet, only disagreeing vehemently over his SecEd pick.  Chicago public schools are shit, and the guy that put them there is now a Cabinet member.  Call me crazy, but that's a terrible idea.

You'd think that if someone was trying to throw candy at you you'd stay still instead of moving around so much.

If Bush is soon forgotten that will be an unfortunate event for this country.  Learning from history requires remembering, not forgetting.  He might not be the worst but he is right down there.  He consistently showed his lack of respect for the constitution.

But I guess I'm just a conspiracy theorists because I don't give any credit to a criminal like Bush.  Me and my silly desire to have a president that upholds the constitution instead of implementing policy that is in direct conflict with it.  ::tinfoil hat::  Bush was a terrible president and I'll always remember how did the exact opposite of what he promised to do in 2000.

"The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten."

Wow.  People never forget polarizing figures.  Come on Dennis, seriously, what are you thinking?  Love or hate, GW Bush won't be easy to forget.

Frankly, I bet Bush is relieved to get all the scorn and responsibility off his shoulders.

If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Everyone takes Bush too harshly. He's not the greatest president ever, but he's not the worst.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You could argue that he's been the worst president of the 21st century so far.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You can also argue that he's the best then...

Today is a day for Change. And the first thing I'd like to see changed here is the stop to reporting on every shitty little flash game that is created. Especially ones that are rip-offs of simple and old games like whack-a-mole and space invaders. Just because you use a parody of space invaders to propel a personal message, does not mean you respect games as a medium of expression, and thus deserve no applause or recognition from the gaming communtiy.

Good example: PETA.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

One Final Game? I doubt that.

....like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. Again, i doubt that.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Yea thats what I thought as well...

This is just the last one while he was still in office...

 

There will be mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny more... hopefully one that depicts the true story of him losing all his money and being sent to prison... through if it is a true story than that will probably be before his brother/daughter/wife becomes president in 8 years and pardons him...

MattsworknameIt did, I found the idea of exploring a world at it's end, exploring the abandoned city of a disappeared alien race and the planets various knooks and crannies intriqued me.08/01/2015 - 5:46pm
Andrew EisenDid it appeal to you? If so, what did you find appealing?08/01/2015 - 5:43pm
MattsworknameIts an interesting concept, but it's not gonna appeal to everyone thats for sure,08/01/2015 - 5:40pm
Andrew EisenThat sounds horrifically boring. Doesn't sound like an interesting use of its time dilation premise either. 08/01/2015 - 5:36pm
Mattsworknamean observer , seeing this sorta frozen world and being able to explore without any restriction other then time. no enimes, no threats, just the chance to explore08/01/2015 - 5:34pm
MattsworknameAndrew: I meant lifeless planet, Time frame is an exploration game. Your dropped onto a world which is gonna be hit by a metor in 10 seconds, but due to time dilation ,you actually have ten minutes, so you can explore the world, in it's last moments, as08/01/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenLP is 20, TF is 8 and has an old build available as a demo.08/01/2015 - 5:32pm
MattsworknameLast I checked zip, Lifeless planet was 10 bucks on steam I think08/01/2015 - 5:29pm
Andrew EisenMatt - Which one? Time Frame? How exactly does that play? What exactly do you DO in that one?08/01/2015 - 5:29pm
Andrew EisenZip - Neither game is above $20.08/01/2015 - 5:28pm
Mattsworknamefinished it, great game all the same.08/01/2015 - 5:22pm
MattsworknameMy only complaint about that game was it's length, I felt it was a bit to short yet in certain places felt like it dragged on a bit. SOme areas were so engaging they flew by, others didn't do enough to keep me energized to play, but I got to the end and08/01/2015 - 5:22pm
ZippyDSMleeNo demo makes me not want to buy until its 10-20$ ><08/01/2015 - 5:21pm
Andrew EisenAh, yes. Lifeless Planet has a much better trailer. Tells me a bit about the game, its story and how it plays. Novel! http://store.steampowered.com/app/261530/08/01/2015 - 5:19pm
MattsworknameOn the same vien, another great exploration game is Lifeless planet. but that one has an actuall story, and real gameplay08/01/2015 - 5:16pm
MattsworknameDoc: I think it's the other way around, I think gamergate only really coalesed when a larger discussion on issues started. The Jerks and asshats just sorta got swept along with the tide.08/01/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameYour not wrong andrew, the trailer doesn't explain much ,I had to play it to understand what made it unique08/01/2015 - 5:12pm
Andrew EisenBut, plenty of great games have crap trailers.08/01/2015 - 5:11pm
Andrew EisenMy problem is the trailer doesn't communicate how the game plays or what you do. The camera pans over the landscape for about a minute and a half and that's about it. Not sure how that's supposed to interest anyone.08/01/2015 - 5:10pm
DocMelonheadLike I mentioned before: Gamergate may have been created by mean spirited bigots to use it to trick people to support their actions.08/01/2015 - 5:10pm
