Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor Choice for September 11th

September 11, 2009 -

This week's controversy over President Obama's speech to America's school children has morphed into a rather unfortunate online game.

Obama's School Camp comes from Scottish firm T-Enterprise, which often mocks political issues with their Friday game offerings. Today's game challenges players to press letters on their keyboards which correspond to paper airplanes floating toward an animation of the President. Press the right letter quickly enough and the paper airplane disappears. Otherwise, it strikes the Obama character.

The paper airplane imagery seems to be an especially poor choice for a game published today, September 11th. It seems an even worse decision given that the game comes from T-Enterprise, which was the firm behind the now-canceled Rendition: Guantanamo project. A consultant to that game was alleged to have ties to Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Game politics reporting seems to be getting more emotive lately. Why don't we just throw in a few more references to how "disgusting" Rapelay is while we're at it. It, just like paper airplanes flying at Obama, is a non-issue, but it gives us all a chance to be outraged and, even better, indignant. Maybe gamepolitics is taking a page out Obama's book and taking a strong stand and using strong words on something unimportant.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Perhaps GP is starting to let the negative mix in a little too much.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

No offence to America, it was a terrible tragedy that happened that day, but I can't help feeling like people are looking for reasons to take offence these days. And this is certainly one of those occasions.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

My roomates and i had a big discussion about this and I was finally able to hit on what really bothers me about it. I'm over 9/11. No I don't think it should be forgotten or that it wasn't a tragedy or anything along that lines. I've just dealt with it.

More power to anyone who hasn't, who lost someone and who still wants to feel despair and anger and sadness on 9/11. But do I HAVE to join you in your emotions just because I live in the same country? Do I HAVE to take a strictly anti-muslim, anti-middle eastern, anti-foreigner attitude even for one day because something terrible happened? 

How many tragedies have happened in our country that I have to take a day of my life every year to cry/yell/hate/etc. for? 5? 10? 50? 100? Where do we draw the line? Columbine, Pearl Harbor, the Civil War, The Civil Rights Movement, 9/11, the Vietnam War, WW1, WW2, Kennedy's Assassination... these are all important events in our histroy we should not forget, but do I really have to spend so much time and energy in my lifetime after I've come to terms with them in order to be respectful?

I don't think so, and I take offense to being told what I should take offense to in regards to these things. Different people have different values and I encourage them to stick to theirs, but for me, 9/11 happened, and the things our country SHOULD have learned from it weren't learned. I don't need to relive that day every year to recognize that.

Damn! I played through this game and only got 1599 points before I failed. This game is pretty tough, though its been a while since I last took a Business Tech class, and even then, I wasn't a very fast typer. Still, I was hunt-and-pecking most of the time.

P.S. For those who don't know, the ones throwing the paper airplanes were the Republicans listening to Barack, not the children...although, after watching the shitstorms going on since Obama was elected, I can understand why anyone'd confuse the Republicans with a bunch of children.

Democrats are not exactly "pure and wholesome" (look at LBJ for proof) but at least they never heckled a Republican president. I stopped being republican because the party is seriously lacking of true leadership. You can try to defend them all you want but the evidence is clear. I am a full blown conservative and I don't agree with some policies from President Obama but at least I show him the respect that a leader of the free world deserves. What about you?

Now about this srticle, I think it's stupid. I really don't see the connections with paper planes, the president and the Sept 11 attacks. It's like adding a fifth leg to a chair.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

We didn't nuke japan because we knew it would end the war, we nuked them because it removed ONE of our enemies in that war, and it jsut so happened to be the enemy who dragged us in.

Once again, you can rationalize and justify all you want, it doesn't change the fact that we've done worst things in the recent and distant past then the "terrorist" groups we are responding to.

So our decision was "We're tired and bored so here you can all die and it will be over with."

Yes that's the kind of message I want my country to stand for.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Yes, because it had nothing to do with saving the lives of thousands of servicemen who would have died trying to take Japan and all the Pacific islands they controlled...

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Not to mention the lives of thousands of Japaneses civilians.


The options were, even if they took time to renegotiate the war would have rolled on because if you gave them time to reorganize they could make the land war more difficult.



The options are



Spend time, money and lives to


1.Run massive bombing campaigns that would have resulted in the same or more damage as the 2 nukes.


2.Bombing campaigns and a full scale land on japan facing not only the military but random civilian insergants as well(think vitnam with a double or higher ratio of insergantcy) were the toll of life would have been on a scale of Normandy is not more.



Or


Force their them into a quick resolution where a minimal of damage and lives taken useing 2 nukes.

It sucks but the alternatives were not better for any side.

The lives of civilians? What you think the nukes magically didn't harm civilians?

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

So, the fact that that "one" enemy we were attacking was also the LAST enemy doesn't make a difference?  Those nukes ENDED THE WAR.

Are you stupid? Germany had already capitulated by the time the nukes were dropped. Japan was the only country left. 

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

I personally don't see why Japan attacking us means that we need to invade Europe. Why were against Germany anyways? Other than them being with Japan, that is. The whole "I'm with him, so I've got to declare war on you too" is what caused World War I and why America wanted to stay the fuck away from Europe's problems. So why did we get involved?

After getting involved against Japan, we were called upon again by Britain and the French Resistance to help.  Since Japan and Germany were already allies, it made sense to do so.

And no airplanes should fly today.  If one crashed today, someone would be offended.

Eh, I don't think that it's a poor choice. The date is probably a coincedence, as the only thing related to 9-11 with this game are "planes," which are made of paper and are just disrupting a speech. You're reaching a bit here, Dennis =p

How is Rendition in poor taste?  It was based on a fictional future.

Is the repeated use of having either Washington DC or New York's Statue of Liberty seen in ruins in a fictional post-WW III setting in poor taste?  I mean, we've seen the imagry time and time again in books, movies, and TV shows. 

And how about the use of Manhattan as a setting for a prison?

Seriously, rich bad guys buying a famous or infamous locale as a base of operations, why is that in poor taste?

The reality of the infamous setting is in FAR MORE poor taste than the fiction ever will be.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

It's only in poor taste because it's based on the lies told to the developers by a former inmate.  About the only thing that the "consultant" told them that wasn't proven wrong by CIA documents and federal investigations was that waterboarding happened there.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

First, HAHAHAHAHA CIA, yeah.  Impressed with their trustworthiness... NOT!

Secondly, you'll have to be more specific about what the "consultant" supposedly lied about.

Thirdly, it was a game based on a fictional story.  Set in the future.  About events that haven't taken place and probably won't take place.  How much "accuracy" can there be?

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Like the CIA joke, but are you seriously drinking Pelosi's Kool-Aid?

The "consultant" said they were denied food and water, everyone was waterboarded every day, nobody was allowed outside, people were beaten every day for no reason, and that nobody there - NOBODY - was ever a terrorist.  Several investigations into the CIA have proven all of these false.

Finally, it was based on the story concocted by the "consultant."  The story itself may have been fake, but they were citing things in-game that have been proven to be false as fact.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Actually, I don't watch or read anything of Pelosi's or any number of other similar folks.

As to the detainees, if the CIA or anyone else involved, WANTED to find these individuals guilty of ANYTHING, they would find a way, by fair means or foul.  Even by making up evidence.

Clearly, the purpose, then wasn't to prove or disprove guilt of the detainees in any activity.  The purpose was clearly to obtain information from the detainees.

People have to remember, this wasn't a prison.  It wasn't punishment.  No one was put on trial, convicted, and sentenced.  Legally, you can't find someone guilty without a trial. 

IF the CIA had evidence that any individual WAS a terrorist, then that individual should have faced trial, conviction, and sentencing.

Can we question what did or did not happen during the detainment?  Of course we can.  We could no more trust a detainee's claims about what happened there than we can trust the CIA or any investigating body.

But, logically and what is supposed to be legally, an individual is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty. In the end, that's all that matters.

Could we trust the views of a "consultant" who previously worked with the CIA and made claims as to what happened during that period of time any more than we could a "consultant" who the CIA claimed was a terrorist and been detained there?  I don't believe we could.  And in the end, what's being made really is a fictional story.  So, if someone wants to make a game that paints a rosey, "patriotic" view of what happened there as the backstory, go for it.

It would be just as accurate.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Here is the problem with the legality argument: by international law, the US Constitution only applies to people apprehended within the borders of the United States.  Since these people were apprehended in other nations, Constitutional protections do not apply.

You are right, however, that having a CIA agent as a consultant doesn't really lend any credence, but I'm not arguing that they do.  I'm arguing counter to the position that since this person claimed this did happen in Guantanamo, that it had to have happened.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

8 years ago we got attacked, unprovoked. A lot of people died.

However I always find it kind of sad that we take such rightous indignation to it and turn it into something that (in some people's minds) should limit free expression when really, we've done a hell of a lot worse to other countries.

You can argue reasons and justification all you want but at the end of the day we've committed atrocities like nuking japan, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (which haven't done much more then destroy the infrastructure in those countries IMO), and many other acts of "policing" and "security" we've undertaken for our own reasons.

Frankly, especially after the last administration, I've never really felt we had a moral high ground to stand on.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

As terrible as I feel for Japan, I think, in the long term, that it was better to see the horrors of Nuclear war from the effects of 1 Megaton bombs that were used at the end of World War 2, than for it not to have been used, because, eventually, someone would have dropped a bomb, and if it had been 10 years later, it would have been ten times bigger, so in my opinion, what Japan endured as a country, taught us an important lesson as a race.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

First, IF (because I don't think that the conspiracy theorists this time are totally wrong) what happened is what the government claim (islamic terrorist attack and whatnot), it was not unprovoked, the government itself claimed that it received a message asking them to retreat from the middle east and stop messing with them and their oil.

The first thing that the Afghan president put by the US did was allow the construction of a oil line by US (I don't think that it was a coencidence...)

Also it is clear that Russia would have won WWII alone, it might be bad if that happened? Maybe, we don't know, but it is clear that Japan was nuked for the sake of scaring Russia, Japan was already losing, Tokyo had been firebombed and the results were worse than the nuke actually, more firebombing altough would not be less atrocious than the nukes (like I said, the fire bombing was bad as the nukes) would caused Japan to lose the war too, but it would not serve as propaganda to the Russians.

In fact, the US meddle too much with other people, when they bite back they wonder why... They keep wondering why Chavez hate them so much, and why he and some other presidents invited Russia to defend the South America waters (in fact, maybe lots of you don't even know, but on the day that Brazil announced a large oil finding, US announced the reactivation of the fourth fleet to "defend" South America, later the Russians were invited by South America to defend them... I guess that the fourth fleet is not welcome), they keep wondering why so much people hate capitalism in South America, specially after what they did with Operation Condor. And they will probably keep wondering why the hell Hondurans hate them, after they insist in puting Zelaya back. (In fact, I dunno why US want to put Zelaya back... The population and the army revolted and removed Zelaya after he declared himself to be a communist, then the US want to put him back, totally bizarre... Maybe a bad way to seek redemption from Operation Condor...)

 

So, before any of you say that any game that shed negative light on you is "bad taste" or "evil" or something like that, remember that North Korea only reactivated their nuke program after Bush called them part of "axis of evil" publicy and attacked Iraq (another part of "axis of evil", thus making easy to foresee an attack on them too).

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

So, let me see if I understand you.  If America never attacked Iraq, Hussein would never have gassed all those Kurds, North Korea wouldn't have sold them missiles, and they never would have tried to gain nukes.  Here's the problem with that logic.  First, America started with Iraq BECAUSE of the Kurds being gassed by Hussein.  Nobody else cared.  By your thinking, nobody should have.  Second, Saddam was doing business with North Korea since the 80s.  That's why they've been making weapons for the last twenty years - to sell them.  Since Kim Jong Ill doesn't care who buys what from him as long as the check clears, and there's a demand for nukes by a lot of the people he's sold weapons to, of course they'll work on a nuclear arsenal.  The only role America played in North Korea getting nukes is we built the first operational one.

I don't said that.

 

But maybe if US (not America, I am American too... duh) did not threatened North Korea, North Korea would not need to threaten back.

Of course, this is a MAYBE.

But US DID threatened North Korea, now they cannot complain. That is my point.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Threatening with economic sanctions =/= excuse to build nuclear weapons.

Also, this doesn't work, as North Korea has merely escalated it's own provocations since Obama took office.  Obama not only hasn't antagonized North Korea in any way, he hasn't RESPONDED to North Korea about their threats in any meaningful way whatsoever.

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Saying that your country is part of axis of evil when you are attacking other country part of axis of evil is not a economic threat...

And yes, I praise Obama for that, and I recognize that further escalation from North Korea now toward US is wrong, but Bush already did the damage, now to Obama fix it will be hard, but anyway, it seems that it is working already, North Korea reopened the borders partially again with South Korea, and even negotiated with the US and gave people back (if that happened with Bush in power, I am certain that they would only kill the US citizens and return their heads).

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

Obama isn't responsible for any of that.  The people coming back was Bill Clinton, not Obama.  He made no effort whatsoever to deal with that crisis.  As far as Obama's plan "working," There have been six missle tests since Obama took office, all of those missles supposedly able to hit targets in Alaska or Hawaii.  I wouldn't call that "getting better."

Maybe Bush calling North Korea part of an axis of evil was wrong, but let's not forget why he said it.  He was trying to make nuclear weapons, and was selling conventional weaponry to our enemies in Iraq and Afghanistan.  That makes the comment retaliatory, not provocatory.

You are missing the point the US has been a witlessly bullish dealing its "enemies" and thus has had its ankles nawed on and knocked to the ground a bit, the US needs to relearn what tact and diplomacy is(not to mention learn to fcking hold to a budget....) as the US is not the world but aprt of it and can be removed from it at any time...

Re: Game Parody of Obama School Speech Controversy a Poor ...

I'm well aware that the US is only part of the world.  You're right that we need to engage in more diplomacy, but the other side of that coin is that NOT ALL OF THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD ARE THE FAULT OF THE US.  If a crazy dictator makes nuclear weapons, it's because he wants to, not because a US President made a speech.  It is also not America's fault that a country that started a war with us didn't like what we expected of them for their surrender.  They knew we'd attack if they turned us down, and turned us down anyway.  It is also not our fault that Islamic terrorists want to kill innocent people.  Every action committed by America as a reason for this "retaliation" was done by military personnell, to a perceived enemy.  They are singling out defenseless women and children in an attempt to make up for the fact that, had they the guts to face off against those who actually attacked them, they'd be creamed.

At least, when we fought for our independance, it was done so against an army.

Sora-ChanSo it's just a matter of having better emulation software. If it can be done with a 3DS game, with all the memory and what not it takes up, it can be done with a GBA title through emulation.07/29/2014 - 7:30pm
Sora-ChanOther VC titles for the NES and Gameboy had the same setup where you couldn't access the homescreen without quitting out of the game til a later update when those games were released for the public outside of the founder program.07/29/2014 - 7:28pm
Sora-Chanthe 3DS can, and does, run GBA games, as seen by the founder gifts, which included a number of GBA titles. As for running GBA games and still having access to the home screen, I beleive it's more of the game emulation software needs to be updated.07/29/2014 - 7:27pm
Matthew Wilsonthe 3ds already swaps os's with the original ds. plus I dont think people expect miverse interaction when playing a gba game.07/29/2014 - 6:06pm
MaskedPixelanteBut that's not the issue, the 3DS is perfectly capable of emulating GBA games. The problem is that it doesn't have enough available system resources to run it alongside the 3DS OS, and thus it doesn't have access to stuff like Miiverse and save states.07/29/2014 - 5:45pm
Matthew WilsonI am well aware that it requires more power, but if a GBA emulator could run well on a original psp, than it should work on a 3ds.07/29/2014 - 5:36pm
ZenThe reason the SNES could run Gameboy, or the Gamecube could run GBA was because their adapters included all of the necessary hardware to do it in the respective add-ons. The systems were just conduits for control inputs and video/sound/power.07/29/2014 - 4:51pm
ZenMatthew: Emulation takes more power than people realize to run a game properly. You can make something run on less, but Nintendo...as slow as they are at releasing them..makes them run as close to 100% as possible. Each game has its own emulator for it.07/29/2014 - 4:47pm
