Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

May 7, 2009 -

In a bit of political commentary, George W. Bush - looking very much like a chimp - has turned up on a fanciful cartridge for Nintendo's Famicon

Kotaku notes that the former President's cartridge is one of 58 contained in retro game shop Meteor's 2009 Famicase exhibit.

Funny enough on the famicase site the entry has a short blurb that says "Save NYC!" so I guess its not supposed to be too terribly negative huh?*shrug*

And if they ever portray Obama on a game cartridge as a monkey, it'll be declared 'The Most Racist Game Cartridge Ever'. ;)

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

Not to be confused with Resident Evil 5, the Most Racist Game Disc ever?

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

"...has turned up on a fanciful cartridge for Nintendo's Famicon."

 

Famicon?  I thought it was Famicom.  Is it correct either way?  The Wiki article seems to anticipate both spellings but doesn't clarify if "Famicon" is incorrect or merely an alternate spelling.

 

Not that it really matters.  Just curious.

Ya i was thinking the same thing. I was also thinking that the Famicom was basically a NES and that cart looks more like a Super NES cart, hence shouldn't that be a Super Famicom game??.

No, that is what the Famicom carts looked like. They changed the shape for NES carts to help prevent importing of Japanese only games.

Re: Dubya Immortalized on the Famicom

I remember them adding two grooves to the backs of all the Super NES cartridges that aligned with two pieces of plastic inside the SNES itself...the Super Famicom games had no such grooves and thus didn't fit...unless you took a screwdriver and hammer to your SNES and knocked out the offending plastic.  Then the games work just fine.

Did they do the same thing with the 8-bit systems?

I believe Famicom is correct, short for FAMIly COMputer.

Hey, maybe we should call this game Donkey Bush Jr,

And maybe an Italian Carpinter will try to climb both of the Twin Towers to save his girlfriend from Donkey Bush Jr.

Yeah.  That's great!  The King Kong metaphor fits perfectly.

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
Andrew EisenAh, not linked in the way you (and everyone else) want and expect. That's true.02/27/2015 - 10:06pm
Matthew Wilsonthey are not linked in a way that tracks purchases though. the fact that they have to send a code for the other system shows that they are not linked in the way it counts.02/27/2015 - 9:39pm
Andrew EisenAccounts are already linked. Have been for quite a while. Also, Mario vs. Donkey Kong was announced as a cross-buy title during last January's Nintendo Direct.02/27/2015 - 9:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/20…/…/27/olli-olli-3ds-wii-u-cross-buy/ I wounder if this is a sign that Nintendo may finally link accounts across the 3ds/wiiu in the near future.02/27/2015 - 9:18pm

ZippyDSMleeDungeons was a so bad so good game to me so I been keeping up with its sequel which will more of a Dungeon Keeper clone. As for pre order out of 7 preorders I was not burnt by 2... Add my contempt of most of modern game design.Ya I have all kinds of hurt.02/27/2015 - 8:40pm
MechaTama31I don't even want to know...02/27/2015 - 8:22pm
ZippyDSMleeFun? I can do fun…. I think LOL. Dungeons 2 is on preorder but not via steam... >> Hell I am breaking all kinds of personal butthurt rules to even THINK about pre order...02/27/2015 - 8:12pm
E. Zachary KnightHad some fun discussions about that dumb dress on Facebook. I opened the original picture in GIMP and sampled the colors and determined them to be Blue and Gold. People still say I am wrong.02/27/2015 - 7:41pm
