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.

Andrew EisenYou know what I'd really like to see become standard? The ability to pause cutscenes. Rewind and skip (with "Are you sure?") would be nice too. Oh, and maybe display the duration of the cutscene when it's paused.07/03/2015 - 1:03am
Mattsworknameonly reason to do region locking now is to be dicks your consumer base. Granted, we see that ALOT these days07/03/2015 - 12:48am
MattsworknameI understand the concerns about the region locking thing, I just thing that if you buy a game legitimately, no matter where it's from or what langauge it's in, you should be allowed to play it. the argument about piracy was proven false years ago, the07/03/2015 - 12:47am

Goth_SkunkI'm in full agreement on the subtitles issue. I also believe that every game should come with a single-player component, and be playable without an internet connection. Except MMOs.07/02/2015 - 10:51pm
TechnogeekRegion locking bans seem like something that'll be very difficult to pass into law. I'm fully on board with the subtitle requirement, though.07/02/2015 - 10:00pm
MattsworknameFor example, all games with any for form of spoken dialoge should be i subtitled, and region locking in any form should be illegal07/02/2015 - 9:03pm
MattsworknameDoes anyone feel that there should be a set standard for all games in terms of certain basic features. Ie subtitles, region lock, etc07/02/2015 - 9:01pm
