Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

July 3, 2009 -

Via fidgit we've been clued into Sackboy, done up in patriotic style as the Sacktue of Liberty...

...which reminds us that Hillary Clinton's face appeared on the Statue of Happiness in Grand Theft Auto IV.

So, are there other Statue of Liberty appearances in gaming? Gotta be...

Funny, since both Little BIG Planet and GTA are created by British developers :)

Am I the only one who thinks "chainsaw" when he sees sackboy, or whatever he's called? I mean this guy is pretty much dredged up from our most intense nightmares. Maybe it's just the higher quality textures, but I wouldn't stop until that thing were rendered into its most basic atomic components if I had the chance.

What kind of candy-coated nightmares are you having? Are you also scared of butterflies?

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I think it looks cute. Then again, the Sackboy charecters have always been pretty cute.

Happy 4th everyone.

Now to just wait a day until someone says this is makign furn of America or something.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I don't see how anyone can take this as an insult.

Hey there's a cute little game that let's you play as a sack-like stuffed animal thingy and for the 4th of July you get to make him look like the statue of liberty.

I don't know of anyone who's so fanatical that any depiction of the statue of liberty would be taken as an insult (sad to say that's not the case with religious figures)

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

If that's the case, then The Conduit must be one big middle finger to America, seeing as how it takes place in D.C., and has you visiting the White House, the Pentagon, the Jefferson Memorial and a couple of levels has the Washington Monument in the background.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

And Deus Ex must be a bigger middle finger for showing a demolished statue of liberty and depicting a government agency as evil.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

And the Fallout series is an even bigger finger since it's the US in ruins.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I like it!

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Wow, I can't believe you didn't think of Deus Ex, which has the ruins of the statue after a mini-nuke.

There was also a holographic representation in Invisible War

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Ghostbusters 2 on the NES had a couple stages where you controlled the Satute of Liberty like they do in the film.

Twisted Metal 2 has a Statue of Liberty easter egg. Shoot it and see what happens. :P 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I remember that one, athat and the Eiffel Tower.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I think you are making things up Jackass.

 

Also, Callin for a fact check up in this area;  he is now in federal court to get his law license back. He will do so. The only thing in his way are three law firms who represented George W. Bush.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

It doesn't matter what he says. His last chance to get it back was SCOTUS and they chose not to take his case. He is never getting his law license back.

At least not in Florida. 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Don't need to fact check, we already know the Supreme Court turned down his appeal.

I built the one for Spider-Man 2. Does that count?

Andrew EisenMarvel has replaced Manara on the variant covers for Thor #2 and Avengers and X-Men: AXIS #1. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think Marvel is learning the right lesson here.09/23/2014 - 6:26pm
quiknkoldI'm 7 years old, and my cousin(Also 7, maybe 8 at this time) tells me has Battletoads. its Summer Vacation. We play and play and play until finally, We won coop. Those were the days.09/23/2014 - 5:29pm
quiknkoldlets take a moment to share some gaming memories, shall we?09/23/2014 - 5:28pm
MechaTama31I buy stuff off the eshop because it gives me the convenience of a flashcart without the guilt.09/23/2014 - 5:03pm
Montewell thanks for the info Eisen; try that the next time i need something off the eshop09/23/2014 - 3:54pm
james_fudgere: MP, i've sent tech support a note - thank you :)09/23/2014 - 3:14pm

MaskedPixelanteDear GP, something called "doubleverify" is causing some nasty browser issues on my end. Probably one of your ads.09/23/2014 - 2:36pm
Andrew EisenOh hell no. No, it took Nintendo a dog's age just to get to the point its competitors have been at for a while! (And it's still not there yet, in a lot of respects.)09/23/2014 - 2:26pm
IanCSame as PSN handles it, fi you are trying to say only nintendo do that.09/23/2014 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenYou have to try to purchase something first. Pick a game, hit purchase and if your wallet doesn't have enough to cover it, you'll be given an option to "add exact funds" or something like that.09/23/2014 - 2:05pm
MonteI have seen no option for that on my 3DS; anytime i want to add funds it only gives me the option to add in denominations of $10, 20, 50 or 10009/23/2014 - 2:03pm
IanCWhat Andrew Wilson said. PSN is the same when you make a purchase over a certain price (£5 in the UK)09/23/2014 - 2:02pm
Andrew EisenNeither eShop charges sales tax either. At least in California.09/23/2014 - 2:00pm
Andrew EisenBoth Wii U and 3DS eShops allow you to add funds in the exact amount of whatever's in your shopping cart. If your game is $39.99, you can add exactly $39.99.09/23/2014 - 1:57pm
Infophile@Matthew Wilson: As I understand it, any regulations to force tax online would also set up an easy database for these stores to use, minimizing overhead.09/23/2014 - 1:30pm
MonteReally, the eshop just does next to nothing to make buying digitally advantagous for the customer. Its nice to have the game on my 3DS, but i can get more for less buying a physical copy at retail. And that's not even counting buying used09/23/2014 - 1:18pm
MonteIanC, The Eshop wallet system only lets you add funds in set denominations and the tax makes sure you no longer have round numbers so you ALWAYS loose money. A $39.99 game for instance requires you to add $50 instead of just $4009/23/2014 - 1:13pm
Matthew Wilsonbut thats just it those sites, even the small ones, sell all over the country.09/23/2014 - 11:12am
