Blago Loses Guv Job, But Gets iPhone Game

January 31, 2009 -

The Illinois Senate may have given  Rod Blagojevich the boot via impeachment, but game developer Yanki.JP is celebrating the disgraced ex-Guv's reign with with Pay2Play, a new iPhone app.

The game's website lets us know that this is not exactly a hardcore political sim:

Pay2Play is the game of trading and danger. How much money can YOU make selling senate seats? Head all over Illinois trading your way to success!

You have 30 days to pay back the unions, make tons of cash, and get out of town all before getting impeached! Transposing a trading game such as Dopewars with a slick interface on the iPhone.

Also a gaming first! Alcopops make it to the game scene for the first time. See what Illinois politicians have been so worried about!

The alcopops reference is a dig at a recent Illinois law prohibiting the depiction of the sweet, boozy drinks in games aimed at children - not that there has ever been an alcopop depicted in a video game.

Eager to try your hand at corrupt Illinois politics? You'll have to wait a bit longer. Pay2Play is currently on hold pending AppStore approval.

Full fledged case of Thompsonitis. Soon, he'll be trying (and failing) to convince people he's still a Senator, and that his opinion is the only sound one.

Thompsonitis....,

symptoms include;

Dementia, Rambling, Crabs (just not where you think), hairloss (same as crabs) and spouting from all ends.

Symptoms that you are getting worse may include but are not limited to;

explosive diarrhea, implosive diarrhea, braintooth (thanks, Colbert!), insideoutness, hysterical screaming, hysterical laughing, hysterical crying and anything else with hysterical on it...

If you have 3 or more of these symptoms, please consult your nearest mortician.

I got another name for it, the Jack Thompson complex

 

The Jack Thompson complex

 

Symptom include: paranoia, using religion as your tool, blaming video game (or other form of medium), attempting to link school shooting/violent crime with that medium, intimidate people to get them believe you, coming up with stereotype and negative image about certain medium, putting lawsuit for the maker of that medium, and using lawsuit as threat, deep thought of conspiracy theory, also showing sign of border-personality disorder and also god complex, having thought about people going after you, these symptom can vary and not all of them may show that you have the complex.

 

If you have this symptom, please commit yourself to a mental asylum and stay away from any religion and medium.

The only people with this complex is Jack and a few of the anime hater I met online (they don't have the religion tool symptom)

You forgot Explosive farting and implosive farting but, anyway that sums up Thompsonitis(literaly)

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

You mean Governor, not Senator.

Frankly, I wonder how much a seat in Utah costs?

MaskedPixelanteI'm not sure how to feel about Ultron's mouth. I'm sure he has one in the comics, but this is getting dangerously close to Transformers "Optimus has a defined mouth and it looks super weird" territory for me.10/22/2014 - 8:49pm

quiknkoldI have a problem with games that use a digit for sequals when clearly they can be called something else. Five Nights at Freddy's 2? Nonono. Its "Another Five Nights at Freddy's" or "Five Nights Week 2"10/22/2014 - 5:30pm

E. Zachary Knightis it really that hard to answer a question, that to me seems fairly straight forward? I ask, because I have asked a specific question now 3 times without an actual answer in the wastebook thread.10/22/2014 - 5:20pm

Matthew Wilsonthat being said, they are more likely to blame religious extremists than games.10/22/2014 - 12:01pm
