Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

October 29, 2008 -

By now the story of how two innocent lines from the Qur'an delayed Little Big Planet's worldwide launch is well known.

While the delay made eager LBP fans sad, 2P Start webcomic has some fun with the fiasco. Click here for the full comic.

GP: Thanks to sharp-eyed GP correspondent Andrew Eisen for the link.

Mmm corporate fascist is the punch line I guess, its more a PR maneuver than fascism tho.

A Hitler Sackboy is WAY more offensive to more people then a song with Quran passeges in it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Ha ha!

It is though this fictional representation of Sony has blundered OUT of the frying pan and IN to the fire, eh chum? As though they thought song lyrics were offensive and then made further misstep by offering a less apropos gift in return!

There's sweet irony! If only the intent of the author in this delightful illustration meant as much as to exagerrate the offensive nature of this censorship inspired delay. Why, Johnathon Swift himself might delight in such a clever horror.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Yet ironically, given the choice between the two, I can guess which more people would want as a download

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Well of course, you can't do unspeakable, horrible things to a background song in the game. The sackboy on the other hand...

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

If you think that most gamers would want to do unspeakable, horrible things to a Hitler sackboy, I'm afraid you've underestimated the gaming community.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Oh come on, how freaking funny would it be to see sackboy Hitler get crushed to death by a giant star of david?

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Amusing no doubt, but I daresay it wouldn't be long until someone uploaded a level that was some sort of mix of hitler fighting his way out of virginia tech, stealing a plane and flying it into the twin towers. Sensitivity is not some peoples strong suit.

Then again your going to get that sort of thing hitler sackboy or not. Perhaps it could be the start of a series of sackboys, available next week, Churchill "we will run about flailing our arms and making amusing faces before jumping on their weak spot, on the beaches"... hasn't got as much of a ring to it.

Re: Webcomic Spoofs Little Big Planet Recall

Is there meant to be a joke in that comic strip? I think I must have missed it.

Andrew EisenThat doesn't mean there has to be a movie though. Having said that, I've no doubt that we will eventually get a Black Panther movie. But Stan Lee will probably learn about it around the same time you and I do.09/02/2014 - 2:34pm
MaskedPixelanteWell they have to get to him eventually. Captain America's shield didn't grow on a tree, the minerals to make it had to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is Wakanda.09/02/2014 - 2:31pm
E. Zachary KnightYes, but it has never been confirmed as in development, or even pre-production.09/02/2014 - 2:21pm
MaskedPixelanteBlack Panther's been on the short list for a while.09/02/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightIt is possible that Stan Lee mispoke. I don't think he knows everything Marvel movies. But it is a sweet idea if true.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
Andrew EisenSo says Stan Lee who almost certainly wouldn't know.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.cinemablend.com/new/Marvel-Black-Panther-Movie-Confirmed-By-Stan-Lee-66993.html Black Panther is apparently getting a movie. And maybe one for Black Widow, even though I think it's too late for her.09/02/2014 - 1:53pm

Andrew EisenHence the "Uh, yeah. Obviously."09/02/2014 - 12:53am
SleakerI think Nintendo has proven over the last 2 years that it doesn't.09/02/2014 - 12:31am
Andrew EisenSleaker - Uh, yeah. Obviously.09/01/2014 - 8:20pm
Sleaker@AE - exclusives do not a console business make.09/01/2014 - 8:03pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that, despite the presence of a snopes article and multiple articles countering it, people are still spreading a fake news story about a "SWATter" being sentenced to X (because the number seems to keep changing) years in prison.09/01/2014 - 5:08pm
Papa MidnightAnd resulting in PC gaming continuing to be held back by developer habits09/01/2014 - 5:07pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that the current gen of consoles is representative of 2009-2010 in PC gaming, and will be the bar by which games are released over the next 8 years - resulting in more years of poor PC ports (if they're ever ported)09/01/2014 - 5:06pm
Andrew EisenMeanwhile, 6 of Wii U's top 12 are exclusive: Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101, and ZombiU. (Wind Waker HD is on the list too but I didn't count it.)09/01/2014 - 4:36pm
Andrew EisenLikewise, only two of Xbox One's top 12 are exclusive: Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome (if you ignore a PC release later this year).09/01/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenNot to disrespect the current gen of consoles but I find it telling that of the "12 Best Games For The PS4" (per Kotaku), only two are exclusive to the system: Infamous: Second Son and Resogun.09/01/2014 - 4:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/01/beyond-two-souls-ps4-trophies-emerge-directors-cut-reported/ MMM MMM, nothing quire like reheated last gen games to make you appreciate the 400 bucks you spent on a new console.09/01/2014 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenThat's actually a super depressing thought, that a bunch of retweeters are taking that pic as an illustration of the actual issue instead of an example of a complete misunderstanding of it.09/01/2014 - 4:20pm
