The news anchor in that clip is a woman I am well familiar with, Bobbie Battista.  She used to be a reporter at Raleigh, NC's CBS affiliate WRAL.  She left there to go work for CNN.  I've seen her on CNN a few times.  Having her be the anchor lends a sense of reality to the clip.  The clip was almost as good as the fake Zelda movie trailer.

Cue people making this into an actual game in 3... 2--- Whoah, they actually did it before I said it, Great Job Net community, you haven't been slacking off.

 

(Meant to be a joke, plus I edited it when I saw the above comment).

If you go on the website it shows, closerangegame.com, you can play the demo.

Suprisingly good graphics for a flash game :/

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

I was gonna state the game was real to some extent but looks like you beat me to it.

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

Gotta admit, that was pretty good.

 

Though, honestly, like Praetorian said, it could be a fun game...

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

I'm not really a fan of the Onion, but that was funny -- they managed to irritate the two groups I hate the most.

Anti-violence people and PETA.

Also, I think they are on to something...I could possibly pay ten or twenty dollars to just shoot people in the face...sounds like it might be fun if done right.

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

Or you could shoot people in the face for free at http://www.closerangegame.com/

It's not as funny as the video about it though, so you won't miss out on anything if you don't.

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

Was gonna say, the humor will be lost on certain people.

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

 

Jack Thompson thinking this game is real and demand not to sell it to children and also wants to sue The Onion for glorifying murder Simulator in 3...2...1

and

PETA claiming this game glorify Horses and Ostriches murders in 3...2...1

 

I saw this video in the morning.  The Onion makes me laugh a lot.  Thank you, Onion. 

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

That poor Ostrich

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

That, admittedly, was quite funny

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

Funny, well-made... and so classy !

Re: Onion Parodies Video Game Violence

Wow, they went as far as making a whole shelf filled with fake covers for that game.

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
Andrew EisenMixedPixelante - Would you like to expand on that?04/17/2014 - 2:43pm
MaskedPixelanteWell, I am officially done with Night Dive Studios. Unless they can bring something worthwhile back, I'm never buying another game from them.04/17/2014 - 2:29pm
