XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

June 15, 2009 -

A recently-released Xbox Live Community Game (MS recently announced that these will soon be called Indie Games) features President Obama as a side-scrolling, 2-D brawler.

Angry Barry is available for 400 points on Xbox Live. We didn't spring for the game although we did check out the free demo.

Hillary Clinton makes an appearance in the game and the screen shot at left appears to feature Sarah Palin. From the game's XBL page:

Angry Barry is a sidescrolling, political parody, 1-2 player 2D beat 'em up in the tradition of many classic arcade games. Take control of Barry as he tries to take over the Presidency of the United States!

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

I can't watch Youtube at work, unfortunately. But if you read (you can actually READ, can't you?) the foxnews (!!! Red flags should be going off here) report about the "Law of the Sea" treaty, it says we wouldn't be selling or giving the river to the UN. The only possible outcome is that environmental groups could sue to enforce UN pollution standards on the river. This in no way shape or form constitutes giving ownership of the Mississippi river to the UN. And thats coming from a right wing rag, which takes every possible chance to bash Obama about everything and anything that could be lied about and misinterpreted.

Im glad you responded so I could continue to prove your incompetance.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Yes Fox News is bad because they don't lean the same way as MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and New York times does. Oh man I got a shiver down my leg thinking about Obama lol Thats an MSNBC Chris Matthews line ^_~

 

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Uh noooooo FOX News is bad because they can't posst real facts even if thier lives depended on it. Oh Did I mention that FOX News also defends Domestic terrorists like the Abortion Doctor killer who belonged to Project rescue, Anti-Goverment nut jobs and people associated with the KKK. Ooooooohhhhhh but they sure hate other terrorists like Al-Qaeda, the Taliban an the IRA but don't go hatin' on our own Terrorists. A nice classic act of hypocrisy brought to you by FOX News.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Do you have Hannity and Limbaugh running on Repeat on your Ipod? You have literally gotten ALL of your information from thier shows. Trust me, I listen to them. Tell ya what.. Do what I do, and OPEN YOUR EYES. Make some observations for yourself. Read some opposing literature, watch some opposing shows.

One of two things will happen:

A:) You will finally get a balanced view of things and realize how stupid you sound parroting the likes of the Repub talking heads. While you remain convicted towards the republican cause, you will be able to make YOUR OWN arguments as to why you believe in it. This, in turn, will make you more fun to debate, and less of a pathetic joke, like you are now.

B:) You will finally get a balanced view of things and realize how stupid you sound parroting the lives of the Repub Talking heads. In fact, you will realize how stupid and closed minded the entire conservative agenda is. When this happens, the Liberal (Also known as "Intelligent" or "Correct") side of the spectrum will welcome you will open arms.

One of them is more preferable than the other, but both will make you less fo a pathetic joke for a human being in the long run.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Yes sir! Praise Science! I see the light the Liberal as you say Intelligent and correct side! Praise Science!

 

I now watch MSNBC each and every night, believe the USA is evil and a nation of cowards and I got funny feeling down my leg when I hear the One Barrack Obama speak!

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Please, the republican party is all about fear, fear the Obama will raise taxes for everyone, fear that Obama will take your guns away, fear that Obama will turn us into a socialist/communist/fascist state, fear that the Gays are gonna getcha, fear that the terrorists are gonna getcha, fear that the Atheists are gonna getcha, fear that the abortionists are gonna getcha.  It's all about fear, fear is the reason we tortured detainees at Guantánamo, fear is why governors across the country are saying that they don't want them in their states because the talking heads at Fox news were parading about this absurd notion that they will just be walking around.  No, they will be in supermaximum security prisons where they put the worst of the worst and these guys are the worst.

If I had to choose between dying in a terrorist attack and living with my rights stripped away with the Patriot act and our image as a shining city on a hill destroyed by us torturing people like some third world dictatorship then I would choose to die because I love my country and I love what it stands for, strike that what it once stood for, and I would rather die as an American with a country that still has it's integrity than live in an America where the terrorists have won, where we live in fear of the next attack, where the government protects us but at the expense of our liberties.  In short, I would rather die for something than live for nothing.  

Always remember the immortal words of Benjamin Franklin.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Science has done a whole lot more for the good of the world than religion has.

You sound like the kind of person that would rather gather a prayer group to heal a broken leg than to take the poor victim of your stupidity to the doctor.

Like I said before: You are a pathetic joke.

Also, FYI: I don't watch MSNBC. In fact, I don't need anyone to tell me my opinions, like you, most certainly do.. I love this country, but also have the intelligence and foresight to see that it does have its flaws, and it pains me to see people like your dumb ass striving to exacerbate the flaws and make this place a worse place to live.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Lol Obama’s popularity has severely dropped, he has 3 more years max. It’s just Jimmy Carter 2.0. A guy coming from no where, becoming extremely popular, destroying the economy to the point where the next generation wonders how candy could have been a nickel and such.

I can only hope we will have a President who loves this country and makes us feel good about ourselves being Americans like after Carter. One year of having a guy who acts like he hates this country and goes on apology tours letting everyone know we are evil hurts us as a nation.

The next President doesn't need to be in love with just himself like this one is we need one that loves himself and his country and is proud to be an American!

Jimmy Carter was extremely popular and worshipped as a God like Obama by the left and when he left he was one of the most hated and villainized Presidents ever and most of the major news agencies tried to ignore him over the years making people forget about them because of their bias. If you take a look at the time of Jimmy Carter, all movies were based on part of his terrible Presidency destroying the nation. It brought the urban apocalypse scene into full play.

One movie went as far as putting in his picture in the movie and talking about the gas shortage which helped bring an end to the USA before the movie started lol

Let’s not forget, he like Obama said we are an evil people an evil nation. Obama of course went a step further calling us “a nation of cowards” after his administration got elected. He sold off the Panama Canal, a canal we built and profited over. Obama is trying to push a deal selling the Mississippi River to a foreign power (I kid you not).

With the way his approval ratings are dropping, and spending more then any other President and all others combined and then saying the economy has been saved and his actions the nation of the USA would literally have to be a nation of cowards as Obama calls us all to vote for him again.

Though, if he is not elected again watch how the mainstream media makes little mention about him and barely speaks about him so history can repeat itself again.

"Lol Obama’s popularity has severely dropped, he has 3 more years max. It’s just Jimmy Carter 2.0. A guy coming from no where, becoming extremely popular, destroying the economy to the point where the next generation wonders how candy could have been a nickel and such."

Yep.. His popularity is SEVERELY dropping.. 61%, according to www.gallup.com, and his Average Approval rating for the first 6 months in office is 64%, which puts him in 4th place for the highest average approval rating amongst all historical presidents. ( A little bit of Research goes a long way, doesn't it? 

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Approval_rating#Highest_average_approval_rating


"I can only hope we will have a President who loves this country and makes us feel good about ourselves being Americans like after Carter. One year of having a guy who acts like he hates this country and goes on apology tours letting everyone know we are evil hurts us as a nation.

Horrendous 4th grade grammar aside.. Where do you get off thinking that Obama hates our country? He is currently working harder than the previous administration ever did to solve our DOMESTIC issues, as well as paying attention to improving our global image. You can love your country and still acknowledge it's many, many flaws. It is just pure stupidity and ignorance to try to say that America is perfect and better than everyone else..

"Jimmy Carter was extremely popular and worshipped as a God like Obama by the left and when he left he was one of the most hated and villainized Presidents ever and most of the major news agencies tried to ignore him over the years making people forget about them because of their bias.

What the hell does Carter have to do with Obama? Obama is not Carter, and Carter is not Obama. Just because Obama favors diplomacy over going in guns blazing and killing people who probably don't deserve it doesn't mean he is Jimmy Carter. Sorry, but your attempts at mudslinging are full of fail.

"Let’s not forget, he like Obama said we are an evil people an evil nation. Obama of course went a step further calling us “a nation of cowards” after his administration got elected. He sold off the Panama Canal, a canal we built and profited over. Obama is trying to push a deal selling the Mississippi River to a foreign power (I kid you not)."

You, uh, notice how I included links to sources that support my arguments? Might be a good time to include them here. I'd like you to find me the source that Obama said "We are an Evil People in an Evil Nation." and where he called us "A Nation of Cowards" with context, please. Even if he did say those things exactly (which I doubt), your quotes are nothing without context.

"With the way his approval ratings are dropping, and spending more then any other President and all others combined and then saying the economy has been saved and his actions the nation of the USA would literally have to be a nation of cowards as Obama calls us all to vote for him again."

Again, his approval ratings still average higher than all but 3 presidents in history and given the republican's current leadership (or lack thereof), I highly doubt you will put up a fight come 2012. As an added bonus, I'd be willing to bet that the Democrats are going to GAIN EVEN MORE seats in the senate and house come the 2010 elections, thus disproving the republicans failed talking points of "America is a Center Right Country!" and "The public is not happy with the democrat party!"

"Though, if he is not elected again watch how the mainstream media makes little mention about him and barely speaks about him so history can repeat itself again."

 Again, the chances of him NOT being elected again are slim to none, if he keeps up what he is doing.

"I can only hope we will have a President who loves this country and makes us feel good about ourselves being Americans like after Carter. One year of having a guy who acts like he hates this country and goes on apology tours letting everyone know we are evil hurts us as a nation."

I certainly hope you mean Clinton.. Because Bush 1 and 2 probably hated this country a whole ton, considering the amount of young American men they sent off to the middle east to die, not to mention all of the work they did to cause the rest of the world to begin to hate us for our unfounded agression and attempts to push other countries around by force, rather than diplomacy.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Communist.

I bet you watch Coundown with Keith Olbermann, and think that we had 9/11 coming, too.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

The Obama Administration also is fully blaming Canada for 9/11 and blaming their borders for it lol You notice all of a sudden we are seeing news articles talking about Canada as a pirate state?

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

And what does Canada has to do with 9/11? Just because the Obama Administration is using them as scapegoats it means that they are the source of all evil. Try again.

Where do you get your "facts" from? Is it Rush Limbaugh? Michael Savage? Seriously your arguments come from retarded Right wing Racists who have absolutely no business talking for the Republican party. Every time you start typing you come with such absurd ideas and coments that it even makes me wonder if you believe what you are just typing. I was not a fan of the Bush presidency but I had respect for the guy as a president but Republicans are not even doing this. Is it because he is a democrat? Is it because he is BLACK? ah gee this is not hard to figure out is it. This is 2005 all over again but the other way around. Democrats are now in power while Republicans are assuming the role of Democrats Circa 2005 but to a higher extreme hitting the Neo-Con blabbering from the 1960's with fear tactics.

Obama Wants to Take My guns (even thou any attempt at this will fall flat in his face)

Obama is gonna raise taxes (even thou anyone who know how to read can find out that is not true)

Obama Wants to socialize Medicine (Uh isn't medicare a form of socialised medicine? Or you guys are just defending the private insurance sector with their inflated rates and absurd excuses for not covering basic medical needs)

I was not a fan of the Bush presidency but I had respect for the guy as a president but Republicans are not even doing this Seriously this is ridiculous, If Republicans keep going with this crap their Minority will be even smaller in 2010 and even 2012. Is it so hard for these turds to see that We as Americans do not need these fear campaigns? If you're gonna go against the Obama administration bring something new to the table and not these third grade fear tactics.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Ha..hahaha...hahahahahahaha...haha

You know, I just mopped the floor with you in the other Obama Article farther up the page. Arguing with you is like playing Halo against a 4 year old with no thumbs.. Pathetic, in every sense of the word.

And No, I don't watch Keith Olbermann (though I hear he's pretty good), and I think 9/11 was a horrific, but overly-politicized even.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Specialy by a certain republican governor. Do I need to say a name?

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

So Angry Barry is trying to take over the Presidency by beating up the competition? Sounds an awful lot like it was written with a right-wing bent.

Re: XBL Indie Game Turns Obama Into Side-Scrolling Scrapper

Lol, seems like a funny satirical game, though not quite my cup of tea.

I must say, the game's theme seems to be a little late. Barak Obama is already president.

Obviously you have it all wrong. This is either set in 2012, or there's some sort of coup going on.
