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 multiple Fire Emblem versions might be more complicated than we thought. http://kotaku.com/japans-new-fire-emblem-has-four-versions-is-crazy-169515313004/02/2015 - 1:29am

E. Zachary KnightAccording to this link, the pizzeria owner did not actually refuse anyone service. He was ask by a reporter if he would cater to a gay wedding and he answered in the negative. When that was published, the rants came rolling in.04/01/2015 - 8:17pm
Papa MidnightCorrection to my prior note, DiRT 3 Complete Edition does NOT replace DiRT 3 in user's libraries. But existing owners of DiRT 3 do get it for free.04/01/2015 - 8:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE it could be like pokemo, but the tweet and the site makes it look like 2 different games. tbf I do not know Japanese.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
MechaCrashInteresting how YouTube comments are universally acknowledged to be cesspits of idiocy where no coherent thought can survive, until a woman closes them. Then it's CENSORSHIP and being AFRAID OF DEBATE.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's... weird. The Direct made it sound like this was an organic part of a single game.04/01/2015 - 7:08pm
Matthew Wilsonapparently the 2 sides of the story in the new fire emblem game is 2 difrent games in japan, and we are getting both combined. https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/583415770744393729/photo/104/01/2015 - 7:00pm
MonteAE: there are pizzaria's that also make italian food which you can order in bulk to cater parties. Also, google pizza wedding; cause it is pretty cool04/01/2015 - 6:50pm
ConsterThe vast majority of (if not all) 1-star reviews are angry rants about its policy. 'Jesus said to love thy neighbor, assholes' (paraphrased) seems very common.04/01/2015 - 6:49pm
Matthew WilsonI did not check it out personaly. I only read a arctlice about it, but it does seem to be in a lets just say a very mean way.04/01/2015 - 6:41pm
Andrew EisenTrashed in a fair way or are people lying about cockroach infestations and stuff?04/01/2015 - 6:24pm
Matthew Wilsonwell they also are getting trashed on yelp too. given the number of people that use it, I suspect they will lose allot of business even if they change their mind.04/01/2015 - 6:19pm
Andrew EisenIt's a pizza joint. It caters weddings? Really? I mean, that's cool. Really cool, even. But seriously?04/01/2015 - 6:02pm

MonteYa i remember when she first started her videos with the comment sections open. There was A LOT of vile harrassment to shift through to get to any REAL debate. Youtube is a TERRIBLE debate forum. Can't blame her for not wanting to deal with harrasment.04/01/2015 - 5:49pm
