Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

May 7, 2009 -

In a bit of political commentary, George W. Bush - looking very much like a chimp - has turned up on a fanciful cartridge for Nintendo's Famicon

Kotaku notes that the former President's cartridge is one of 58 contained in retro game shop Meteor's 2009 Famicase exhibit.

Funny enough on the famicase site the entry has a short blurb that says "Save NYC!" so I guess its not supposed to be too terribly negative huh?*shrug*

And if they ever portray Obama on a game cartridge as a monkey, it'll be declared 'The Most Racist Game Cartridge Ever'. ;)

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

Not to be confused with Resident Evil 5, the Most Racist Game Disc ever?

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

"...has turned up on a fanciful cartridge for Nintendo's Famicon."

 

Famicon?  I thought it was Famicom.  Is it correct either way?  The Wiki article seems to anticipate both spellings but doesn't clarify if "Famicon" is incorrect or merely an alternate spelling.

 

Not that it really matters.  Just curious.

Ya i was thinking the same thing. I was also thinking that the Famicom was basically a NES and that cart looks more like a Super NES cart, hence shouldn't that be a Super Famicom game??.

No, that is what the Famicom carts looked like. They changed the shape for NES carts to help prevent importing of Japanese only games.

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

I remember them adding two grooves to the backs of all the Super NES cartridges that aligned with two pieces of plastic inside the SNES itself...the Super Famicom games had no such grooves and thus didn't fit...unless you took a screwdriver and hammer to your SNES and knocked out the offending plastic.  Then the games work just fine.

Did they do the same thing with the 8-bit systems?

I believe Famicom is correct, short for FAMIly COMputer.

Hey, maybe we should call this game Donkey Bush Jr,

And maybe an Italian Carpinter will try to climb both of the Twin Towers to save his girlfriend from Donkey Bush Jr.

Yeah.  That's great!  The King Kong metaphor fits perfectly.

Andrew EisenNintendo announced the Link amiibo is compatible with Hyrule Warriors. No idea how Nintendo expects anyone to give a toss if it don't tell us what it does. Then again, maybe I'm just being curmudgeonly.10/21/2014 - 1:25pm
Neo_DrKefkaSo Gamergate compared me to leftist Saul Alnsky....ME off all the people10/21/2014 - 1:16pm
IanCWell.... quite.10/21/2014 - 1:10pm
Andrew EisenWell of course. Girls don't buy figurines and guys don't buy figurines of girls. And no, the girls that buy figurines and the guys that buy figurines of girls don't count. The money belongs on the table, thank you very much!10/21/2014 - 12:43pm
IanCI have 3 of the Disney Infinity figures even though i don't have the game (Rapunzel from Tangled, and Anna & Elsa from Frozen, purely because its the only way to get figures from those two films)10/21/2014 - 12:23pm
Andrew EisenGlad you said "Pokemon." That's the first time I've seen anyone use that abbreviation.10/21/2014 - 12:14pm

E. Zachary KnightI have avoided Skylanders and Disney Infinity so far, so I don't see how Amiibos will get me in their grasp.10/21/2014 - 11:39am
Andrew EisenYes, GamerGate has a lot of fair-weather friends.10/21/2014 - 11:25am
Neo_DrKefkaI'm disheartened we have a group of people in Gamergate such as The Ralph Retort that is using Gamergate to prop themselves up but they are acting just like those they are fighting against. Only gaming site coming out of gamergate that worthy is TechRaptr10/21/2014 - 11:17am
Andrew EisenNot I. I'm not interested in desktop tchotchkes. Don't know what they do in Captain Toad (a game I'll actually be picking up) but I'm not impressed by what they do in Smash Bros.10/21/2014 - 11:10am
quiknkoldso in a change of subject to something much lighter, who here is getting the Amiibos? I have 4 preordered.10/21/2014 - 7:02am
TechnogeekFor a change of pace, here's a story about death threats aimed at games industry employees via Twitter that has nothing whatsoever to do with Gamergate: http://kotaku.com/indie-dev-threatens-gabe-newell-has-game-removed-from-164867886910/21/2014 - 4:38am
MechaCrashThey aren't being held accountable because *this is what GamerGate is really about.* Hatred and harassment under a thin veneer of concern for ethics; it's a rotten movement right down to the core. Related: http://tinyurl.com/o5mamgn10/21/2014 - 1:53am
