Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

July 3, 2009 -

Via fidgit we've been clued into Sackboy, done up in patriotic style as the Sacktue of Liberty...

...which reminds us that Hillary Clinton's face appeared on the Statue of Happiness in Grand Theft Auto IV.

So, are there other Statue of Liberty appearances in gaming? Gotta be...

Funny, since both Little BIG Planet and GTA are created by British developers :)

Am I the only one who thinks "chainsaw" when he sees sackboy, or whatever he's called? I mean this guy is pretty much dredged up from our most intense nightmares. Maybe it's just the higher quality textures, but I wouldn't stop until that thing were rendered into its most basic atomic components if I had the chance.

What kind of candy-coated nightmares are you having? Are you also scared of butterflies?

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I think it looks cute. Then again, the Sackboy charecters have always been pretty cute.

Happy 4th everyone.

Now to just wait a day until someone says this is makign furn of America or something.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I don't see how anyone can take this as an insult.

Hey there's a cute little game that let's you play as a sack-like stuffed animal thingy and for the 4th of July you get to make him look like the statue of liberty.

I don't know of anyone who's so fanatical that any depiction of the statue of liberty would be taken as an insult (sad to say that's not the case with religious figures)

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

If that's the case, then The Conduit must be one big middle finger to America, seeing as how it takes place in D.C., and has you visiting the White House, the Pentagon, the Jefferson Memorial and a couple of levels has the Washington Monument in the background.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

And Deus Ex must be a bigger middle finger for showing a demolished statue of liberty and depicting a government agency as evil.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

And the Fallout series is an even bigger finger since it's the US in ruins.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I like it!

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Wow, I can't believe you didn't think of Deus Ex, which has the ruins of the statue after a mini-nuke.

 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

There was also a holographic representation in Invisible War

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Ghostbusters 2 on the NES had a couple stages where you controlled the Satute of Liberty like they do in the film.

Twisted Metal 2 has a Statue of Liberty easter egg. Shoot it and see what happens. :P 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I remember that one, athat and the Eiffel Tower.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I think you are making things up Jackass.

 

Also, Callin for a fact check up in this area;  he is now in federal court to get his law license back. He will do so. The only thing in his way are three law firms who represented George W. Bush.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

It doesn't matter what he says. His last chance to get it back was SCOTUS and they chose not to take his case. He is never getting his law license back.

At least not in Florida. 

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

Don't need to fact check, we already know the Supreme Court turned down his appeal.

Re: Little Big Planet's Sacktue of Liberty

I built the one for Spider-Man 2. Does that count?

Neo_DrKefkaBoogie who stood on the fence trying to find a neutral ground and peace was called out for the RalphRetort and called evil for doing so but when Boogie was doxxed and came into the folds of GamerGate all of a sudden he is forgiven.10/23/2014 - 2:02pm
Papa MidnightBut it's not about harrassment (http://thinkprogress.org/culture/2014/10/23/3583347/felicia-day-gamergate/).10/23/2014 - 1:58pm
Papa MidnightIn other GamerGate news, Felicia Day (gamer and actress (Eureka, Supernatural), posted her concerns about GamerGate. Doxxed within the hour.10/23/2014 - 1:58pm
Papa MidnightNot for nothing, but considering how Ubisoft titles tend to be horribly unoptimised ports, those requirements actually seem low - especially if you plan to consistently run at 60fps (I'm looking at you "Black Flag" and Splinter Cell).10/23/2014 - 1:55pm

Neo_DrKefkaI'm upset at all parties but a cue to replace one bad apple for another does not solve the problem. Perhaps I expect to much out of #GamerGate because the early streams were about progress & solutions now they are about a persons ego talking about drinkin10/23/2014 - 1:35pm
prh99Honestly I've never liked Gawker, and considering their own behavior the self righteous indignation in the wake of GG rings a bit hollow. If my email causes them to lose money I will not feel even a twinge of guilt.10/23/2014 - 1:00pm
Papa MidnightNeo_DrKefka: Till outlets such as IGN and GameSpot so much as even acknowledge the mere existence of "GamerGate", I highly doubt it will affect their modus operandi anytime in the future - near or otherwise.10/23/2014 - 12:26pm
Neo_DrKefkaWhat GamerGate is essentially doing whether people like it or not its going to change the gamingmedia but inturn its also going to replace some outlets & practice the same wrongs they claim they fought against. Its happening already look at TheRalphRetort10/23/2014 - 12:18pm
Neo_DrKefkaIf a company claims it supports the Klan or another offensive organization than the advertiser needs to make sure they're brand is not tainted so they pull they're ads. One side does not determine the right to determine what is universally offensive.10/23/2014 - 12:14pm
Neo_DrKefkaActions have consequences however. If you do a Bioware and insult EA's customers would you be suprised if they lost advertisers and customers? Advertisers are not giving money to charity to they putting ads to make money.10/23/2014 - 12:13pm
Matthew Wilsonwhile I disagree with people pushing pressure on advertisers, consumers do not have many other options to show there disagreements with a article or writer. if people are going to do it, it should be for somthing much worse then that guy did.10/23/2014 - 12:10pm
Neo_DrKefkaNow they are about KingofPol & InternetAristocrat making streams that are bait and switch Streams that claims they are about GG but are about them getting drunk and them making fun of Autistic people10/23/2014 - 12:09pm
Neo_DrKefkahttp://tinyurl.com/nhlbgq8 These people some of them are using GamerGate to prop there careers up. GamerGate streams used to be about ideas of change and solutions to problems.10/23/2014 - 12:09pm
Neo_DrKefkaI believe the message of #GamerGate but I do not believe in the Cult of Personality that has formed. Where sites like TechRaptor gained exposure and they are a great site. Sites like TheRalphReport are using this movement for there own personal gain.10/23/2014 - 12:05pm
ZippyDSMleeSo has the whole GG thing become toxic to the point its time to move on yet?10/23/2014 - 11:54am
prh99As for GG, I am surprised they haven't pulled out every 4chan spawned mob and script kiddie's favorite tool, LOIC to DDoS their foes. Or maybe they did and I missed it.10/23/2014 - 11:38am
BillIn his article Max says "I've been told that we've lost thousands of dollars already, and could potentially lose thousands more, if not millions."10/23/2014 - 11:25am
BillJames, do you think new advertisers won't bring this up when negotiating Ad rates? From a business standpoint, if I were to advertise on Gawker I would point to this and be pretty firm on lower rates.10/23/2014 - 11:21am
