Fox News Asks if NBA Jam is Bi-Partisan

October 11, 2010 -

In a recent Fox News piece on the hidden political characters in NBA Jam, co-host Jenna Lee (Thanks Joystiq) asked EA Sports head Peter Moore if giving President Obama’s character special abilities in the game was “bi-partisan,” an ironic question perhaps, given the network that the question was posed on.

Moore remained nonplussed, answering, “We try and be non-partisan in what we do.” He continued, “But at the same time, the President, who as you know is a pretty good hoops player himself… ah, we try to represent his skills there.”

Kotaku’s resident sports game guru Owen Good broke down the skills of a few politicians, and asked if it was “really necessary to give all of the Republicans an 8-out-of-10 rating in 'steal'?" Cheney’s in-game character features a “9” rating (out of 10) for shot blocking, while ex-President George W Bush has a “3” rating for clutch. Obama features an “8” rating for dunking (the same as Cheney’s), while Biden, with a speed rating of “7,” is actually faster than POTUS.

I remember one time, I had a pool party at my uncle's house. And one of the guests brought their baby brother with them into the pool. And he took a dump right in it. The green-apple splatters kind.

Fox news has managed to outdo him in sucking the fun out of every goddamn thing on the planet.

So, just exactly what network do you think could pose that question without it being ironic?  From where I sit, all of them are horridly biased, Fox is just biased the other way from the rest.

Andrew EisenIt's called The Bar-Arcade? Missed opportunity. I would have gone with Barcade.08/20/2014 - 3:25pm
SleakerThe Bar-Arcade however did have a lot of good pinball machines, they were however always taken as the place was packed..08/20/2014 - 1:17pm
Sleakerso I've been to an Arcade-Bar, not that great of a place has some okay machines, but generally over-packed. And then all the kid-friendly ones have is ticket-games nothing actually good unfortunately :(08/20/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenIf it has an area dedicated to arcade machines, I'd say it counts. Arcade machine in your house though, nope.08/20/2014 - 12:16pm
ZenDoes it count if you have actual arcade machines in your house?08/20/2014 - 12:01pm
E. Zachary KnightWith the current poll, I guess it all depends on how one defines "arcade". If Chuck E Cheese or similar multipurpose businesses count, then that is a yes for me.08/20/2014 - 11:59am
