Blago Loses Guv Job, But Gets iPhone Game

January 31, 2009 -

The Illinois Senate may have given  Rod Blagojevich the boot via impeachment, but game developer Yanki.JP is celebrating the disgraced ex-Guv's reign with with Pay2Play, a new iPhone app.

The game's website lets us know that this is not exactly a hardcore political sim:

Pay2Play is the game of trading and danger. How much money can YOU make selling senate seats? Head all over Illinois trading your way to success!

You have 30 days to pay back the unions, make tons of cash, and get out of town all before getting impeached! Transposing a trading game such as Dopewars with a slick interface on the iPhone.

Also a gaming first! Alcopops make it to the game scene for the first time. See what Illinois politicians have been so worried about!

The alcopops reference is a dig at a recent Illinois law prohibiting the depiction of the sweet, boozy drinks in games aimed at children - not that there has ever been an alcopop depicted in a video game.

Eager to try your hand at corrupt Illinois politics? You'll have to wait a bit longer. Pay2Play is currently on hold pending AppStore approval.

Full fledged case of Thompsonitis. Soon, he'll be trying (and failing) to convince people he's still a Senator, and that his opinion is the only sound one.

Thompsonitis....,

symptoms include;

Dementia, Rambling, Crabs (just not where you think), hairloss (same as crabs) and spouting from all ends.

Symptoms that you are getting worse may include but are not limited to;

explosive diarrhea, implosive diarrhea, braintooth (thanks, Colbert!), insideoutness, hysterical screaming, hysterical laughing, hysterical crying and anything else with hysterical on it...

If you have 3 or more of these symptoms, please consult your nearest mortician.

I got another name for it, the Jack Thompson complex

 

The Jack Thompson complex

 

Symptom include: paranoia, using religion as your tool, blaming video game (or other form of medium), attempting to link school shooting/violent crime with that medium, intimidate people to get them believe you, coming up with stereotype and negative image about certain medium, putting lawsuit for the maker of that medium, and using lawsuit as threat, deep thought of conspiracy theory, also showing sign of border-personality disorder and also god complex, having thought about people going after you, these symptom can vary and not all of them may show that you have the complex.

 

If you have this symptom, please commit yourself to a mental asylum and stay away from any religion and medium.

The only people with this complex is Jack and a few of the anime hater I met online (they don't have the religion tool symptom)

You forgot Explosive farting and implosive farting but, anyway that sums up Thompsonitis(literaly)

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

You mean Governor, not Senator.

Frankly, I wonder how much a seat in Utah costs?

Andrew EisenThe story you just linked to? The story you asked if anyone had seen? Yes, THAT obnoxiousness. I've heard it parroted for nearly two years now.11/27/2014 - 7:57pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: That shes an ex con man?11/27/2014 - 7:54pm
Andrew EisenI've heard the same obnoxious horse poo for years. It's nothing new.11/27/2014 - 7:45pm
ZippyDSMleeAlso anyone see this? http://guardianlv.com/2014/11/anita-sarkeesian-unmasked-feminist-icon-or-con-artist/11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
ZippyDSMleeEvil within is a badly designed game.11/27/2014 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenSure but you said "widens," hence my confusion. Looking into it, yep, there's a tweak to completely re-frame the image, adding more info at the top and bottom. You apparently need a fairly beefy rig to keep it running smooth when you do that though.11/27/2014 - 6:48pm
Matthew Wilsonthere is vertical fov, not just horizontal fov11/27/2014 - 6:38pm
Andrew EisenWell, you can widen it to 3:1 or even 10:1 but I don't know why you'd want to. From what I understand it's the missing visual info at the top and bottom that some object to, not that there isn't enough on either side.11/27/2014 - 6:36pm
Matthew WilsonI think it widenss the fov, so you get to see more.11/27/2014 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenI don't see how as doing so would not add any visual information to the top or bottom of the screen.11/27/2014 - 6:04pm
Matthew Wilsonfrom what I read, getting rid of the black bars and stretching it out made for a better play experience.11/27/2014 - 5:59pm
Andrew EisenFrom what I hear, there's a ton of "look up and shoot at the guys above you" stuff in the game that the wider frame doesn't accommodate such actions well.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Andrew EisenHaving a game run in scope is not necessarily a bad thing but like any aspect ratio, you have to compose your shots correctly.11/27/2014 - 5:55pm
Neo_DrKefkaThe Evil Within was pretty bad and to make it worse the way the screen size made it hard for you to see even on a big screen it really hurt the game. Being Artistic is great but when you focus on art rather than what sells you run the risk of that happen11/27/2014 - 5:33pm
Matthew WilsonI kinda hope this is not true. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/11/nintendo_might_not_be_making_more_gamecube_controller_adapters_at_the_moment11/27/2014 - 1:34pm
Matthew WilsonI saw that. I wish people would stop preording, but sadly that will never happen.11/27/2014 - 1:26pm
