Obama Simulators for PC

January 29, 2009 -

President Barack Obama's status as a pop icon seems to have breathed new life into the niche market for political strategy games.

GamePolitics has previously covered Commander in Chief: Geo-Political Simulator 2009 and CNN now has a video report on the game.

We've also stumbled across Oval Office from Zero G. Beyond its marketing blurb, we don't yet have much info on the $19.99 PC game:

Can you run the country better than the people in charge? Oval Office is the ultimate political strategy and simulation game! As president, you will have to balance the budget, keep taxes in check, make snap judgments, and much more.

 

Prefer a green paradise, or socialist utopia? Control crime without destroying civil liberties? These are only some of the tough issues you will face. But the biggest question of all is can you win re-election? It's not as easy as it sounds in the Oval Office!

GP: I've been playing a bit of Commander in Chief recently. It's fun, but fairly complex. The game has garnered a couple of glowing user reviews on GameSpot.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

I keep considering buying a copy of one of these, but in the end I remember that as far as complex simulators go, I've still got my retail versions of Battlecruiser Millenium: Gold and Universal Combat.

That'll eat up my time well enough, thanks.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

Can I win re-election?  Well, if the past few weeks are any indication, all I have to do is spend a bunch of money I don't have, distribute it poorly while continuing to severely weaken the U.S. dollar, and everyone will love me!

(I know this is an oversimplification, but I HATE the idea of government bailouts, no matter who they're for.  Survival of the fittest, I say.)

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

So you're saying that the people love George W Bush?

I don't think so.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

Don't put words in my mouth.  I don't have to like Bush to dislike Obama, and vice versa.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

I hope this "pop icon" phase ends soon.  I don't think a US President (or any world leader) should be regarded as some kind of pop celebrity. 

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

I second this.  Everyone makes him seem like some kind of hero, he's just the president and he hasn't even done anything big so let's wait a while before we do things like call him the next FDR and make coins of him.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

Oh come on guys!  This part of a presidency is just like one of those reality shows - it's "The Presidential Honeymoon, starring Barack Obama".  The fall from grace is inevitable, but the honeymoon has it's entertainment value too.  Just buy popcorn and enjoy the show.  I mean heck, if you can't laugh at the sheeple who buy into all the hype, what can you laugh at?

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

I said it on Kotaku, I'll say it here.  Do not want.

Re: Obama Simulators for PC

How long until someone gets butthurt over the fact that Obama is appearing in video games? I want to laugh at them, already!

MaskedPixelanteOf course it's improved. At launch, Origin was scanning your entire hard drive, but now it's just scanning your browsing history. If that's not an improvement, I dunno what is!07/29/2014 - 8:59pm

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
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
