Swine Flu: the Video Game

April 29, 2009 -

Given the recent outbreak of swine flu, could an online swine flu game - perhaps several - be far behind?

Of course not.

The first to emerge is Swinefighter, a game which challenges the player to inoculate as may pigs as possible under the pressure of a time limit. The game's - ahem - viral spread is being helped along by a direct link to Twitter.

Re: Swine Flu: the Video Game

Go play Pandemic 2 instead... you can KILL everyone with swine flu, instead of just protecting them from it.

Unless you start in Madagascar, of course.

Re: Swine Flu: the Video Game

I have successfully killed Madagascar without actually starting in Madagascar.

Re: Swine Flu: the Video Game

All the victims so far have been Mexican. So, unless the game paints them as evil and terrorists, they're not gonna complain.

Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm

MechaTama31I am always mysitfied when Cowboy Bebop is held up as an example of a good dub. Is it because it merely makes you want to cover your ears, rather than want to jam red-hot pokers into them?03/27/2015 - 5:04pm
james_fudgeyeah we covered that03/27/2015 - 4:41pm

Matthew WilsonI know most of my friends first saw robotech when it was on Toonami in the mid 90s, but it is possible that a fan who watched it in the 80s are in a position to do it.03/27/2015 - 1:04pm
Andrew EisenRobotech was mid 80s. Fans of the show (who were kids when it aired) are my age and older.03/27/2015 - 1:01pm
Matthew Wilsontiming. anime only really became widely known in the US in the mid 90s. if we assume it was mostly kids watching it, they still wouldnt be high enough in managment to be given full creative control yet. it would still be another 5 to 10 years for that.03/27/2015 - 12:59pm
Andrew EisenI agree. Now what makes you think that there is no one in power who cares about (or has the ability to) make a good adaptation?03/27/2015 - 12:47pm
Matthew Wilsonits not about pratice, it is about people who understand it getting in to positions of power.03/27/2015 - 12:34pm
Matthew Wilsonallot of the comic book characters that have been turned in to good movies started in the 70s or earlier.03/27/2015 - 12:32pm
