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.

 

Saying that Jack Thompson is impotent is an insult to impotent men everywhere. They've got a whole assortment of drugs that can cure their condition; Jack, however...

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.

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.

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

InfophileAnd the headlines-only part is particularly depressing, as in most sites, they're not even written by the author of the article. So the author has to field tons of complaints about what the editor decided to title their article.10/02/2014 - 6:25am
InfophileAE: Most people don't. This has been tested - I remember an article slipped in a request in the second-to-last paragraph to use the word "banana" in your comment if you read that. It took over 50 posts for a banana.10/02/2014 - 6:24am

james_fudgewhoever made that decision at Intel will regret it later on down the road. Boycotts are tricky business.10/02/2014 - 4:26am
prh99The unflattering characterization "They don’t know how to dress or behave." & "‘Games culture’ is a petri dish of people who know so little about how human social interaction..." probably didn't help.10/02/2014 - 1:52am
prh99Probably not many as it was purely a vindictive move. The headline alone was plenty of ammo, but for those that did read and complain..10/02/2014 - 1:42am
Andrew EisenI wonder how many of those who complain about that article actually read past the headline.10/02/2014 - 1:37am
prh99http://intel.ly/1tjh1AH http://bit.ly/1rGPHOY http://intel.ly/Zu6go9 it isn't surprising "Gamers are over" didn't go over very well.10/02/2014 - 1:34am
Papa MidnightCan you parlay that to #WriteAGawkerArticle? The cesspool of horrid crap over there extends far beyond Kotaku.10/02/2014 - 12:34am
Andrew EisenWow! Intel dropped Gamasutra due to GameJournoPros? Over Matt Matthews? The only Gamasutra guy in the group? Who hasn't written a single thing about #GamerGate at the site? Where did you read that?10/02/2014 - 12:32am

Neo_DrKefkaSo Intel has dropped Gamesutra due to there support of your Gaming News Cabal Fudge. Anti GamerGate article soon? Or like your e-mails are you hoping this narrative dies down soon?10/02/2014 - 12:14am
Andrew EisenWell, time to eat some dinner and work on the Hyrule Warriors guide until bedtime!10/02/2014 - 12:11am
Andrew EisenJust finished my stream. That... could have gone better. Technical issues prevented me from playing a console game so I instead played and bitched about The Walking Dead for two hours. Oh well, the folks watching still seemed to enjoy it.10/02/2014 - 12:09am
