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.

 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

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.

AE: Off topic.  Deleted.

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 EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
Daniel LewisI think ubisoft should give AC a break before it's milked to death,and i'm a big fan of the games03/31/2015 - 1:15pm
PHX Corphttp://www.polygon.com/2015/3/31/8320017/assassins-creed-chronicles-china-india-russia Assassin's Creed Chronicles is now a trilogy, goes to China, India and Russia03/31/2015 - 1:11pm
Daniel LewisThe only thing said i disagree with is the final quote on Men's experiences are seen to be universal but women are gendered,though doesn't anita say that games with male protagonists are male power fantasies,so in turn both are gendered03/31/2015 - 1:08pm
Daniel Lewisi found the video to be much better than any of the TvW series and it's about time the positive women are put in the spotlight03/31/2015 - 1:06pm
Daniel LewisSo feministfrequency released a positive female character video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXmj2yJNUmQ03/31/2015 - 1:05pm
Daniel LewisI think the guy who made the direct leak said it was an april fools joke when a real one was announced03/31/2015 - 12:43pm
MaskedPixelanteNo way Nintendo would let information like that get out. Remember, they shut down a memoir about the localization of Earthbound by enforcing a 20 year old NDA on the author.03/31/2015 - 12:42pm
Andrew EisenOh, there's definitely a Nintendo Direct tomorrow, but that beat-by-beat recap is almost certainly bogus.03/31/2015 - 12:20pm
