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.

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?

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
