One Final Bush-Bashing Game

January 20, 2009 -

As George W. Bush turns over the reigns to Barack Obama today, online gamers will have their final chance to zing the 43rd president.

Goodbye, Mr. Bush is a whack-a-mole sort of affair in which players hurl objects at a cartoon version of Dubya which pops up in various locations on the White House lawn. Weapons of choice include eggs, candy and, of course, shoes.

The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. But there is one clever moment. Players who choose Weapons of Mass Destruction to hurl at Bush are informed that WMD can't be found.

Hmmm... Where have we heard that before?

The people who are chortling at their own wit for making these games will soon be snarling and screeching whenever anyone dares to disagree with Barack Obama.  Just wait and see that I'm right.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

The internet is certainly having a collective orgasm over his innauguration speech.

Statements like, "I can listen to him speak for days," from straight men are frightening. He's a President, people, not the Second Coming.  And he's the President of one of the biggest and powerful Federal Governments in the history of the world.  Optimism is great, but we must watch our government closely.  If GW  showed up anything, it was that.  I have no issues with what Obama's done as of yet, only disagreeing vehemently over his SecEd pick.  Chicago public schools are shit, and the guy that put them there is now a Cabinet member.  Call me crazy, but that's a terrible idea.

You'd think that if someone was trying to throw candy at you you'd stay still instead of moving around so much.

If Bush is soon forgotten that will be an unfortunate event for this country.  Learning from history requires remembering, not forgetting.  He might not be the worst but he is right down there.  He consistently showed his lack of respect for the constitution.

But I guess I'm just a conspiracy theorists because I don't give any credit to a criminal like Bush.  Me and my silly desire to have a president that upholds the constitution instead of implementing policy that is in direct conflict with it.  ::tinfoil hat::  Bush was a terrible president and I'll always remember how did the exact opposite of what he promised to do in 2000.

"The game, like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten."

Wow.  People never forget polarizing figures.  Come on Dennis, seriously, what are you thinking?  Love or hate, GW Bush won't be easy to forget.

Frankly, I bet Bush is relieved to get all the scorn and responsibility off his shoulders.

If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Everyone takes Bush too harshly. He's not the greatest president ever, but he's not the worst.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You could argue that he's been the worst president of the 21st century so far.


If you go crazy then I will still call you Superman.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

You can also argue that he's the best then...

Today is a day for Change. And the first thing I'd like to see changed here is the stop to reporting on every shitty little flash game that is created. Especially ones that are rip-offs of simple and old games like whack-a-mole and space invaders. Just because you use a parody of space invaders to propel a personal message, does not mean you respect games as a medium of expression, and thus deserve no applause or recognition from the gaming communtiy.

Good example: PETA.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

One Final Game? I doubt that.

....like the man it lampoons, will soon be forgotten. Again, i doubt that.

Re: One Final Bush-Bashing Game

Yea thats what I thought as well...

This is just the last one while he was still in office...

 

There will be mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnny more... hopefully one that depicts the true story of him losing all his money and being sent to prison... through if it is a true story than that will probably be before his brother/daughter/wife becomes president in 8 years and pardons him...

Mattsworknamealso, in MGR, on higher levels, button mashing will get you reckt, you have to master parry to even have a prayer05/24/2015 - 8:52pm
MattsworknameI kinda would like a bit more variety in the combat, as it feels a bit to stiff and slow for me. Especailly after other games ive played05/24/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkThere's... no button mashing in DA:I. However, neither is DA:I's combat perfect. I, for one, detest the active talent max limit of 8.05/24/2015 - 8:21pm
MattsworknameDa I combat is fun, a bit stiff but fun, but I still say the best pure combat engine in any game was Metal gear rising.05/24/2015 - 7:15pm
ZippyDSMleeWhen DA gets a control system like DA:O I'll brother to want to paly it, I frown on button mashing RPGs not made by bethseda...05/24/2015 - 5:59pm

Goth_SkunkThe game is 75% sidequests, 25% story. And most of those sidequests are only vaguely related to the main story at all, having very little consequence to the plot at large.05/24/2015 - 1:12pm
Goth_SkunkI'm such a huge BioWare fan that I played through my first playthrough of DA:I without complaint, but on my second time through I certainly took notice of just how much side-quest material there was. It's probably my greatest criticism of the game.05/24/2015 - 1:10pm
ZippyDSMleeI need one of my 70 games to play....mmmmmmmm05/24/2015 - 9:57am

Goth_SkunkPlaying a third and probably final playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that's done, I'll move on to AC: Unity, most likely, then get caught up on A-list games I have yet to play, like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Shadows of Mordor.05/23/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameIf you own a vita and like monster hunter, but dont like the bs filler that goes with it. Try tokiden kiwmai05/23/2015 - 6:11pm
Matthew Wilsonaparently their servers got crushed, but I dont see the game selling well. Nintendo fans tend not to be fans of competitive fps05/23/2015 - 5:48pm
