War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

October 16, 2009 -

The year is 2011. President Obama has just outlawed the private ownership of firearms, announced that the Constitution has been dissolved and revealed that the United States is going to be replaced by the North American Union, an amalgamation of the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Revolution breaks out. Your part in this is to help capture Obama and the renegade Cong (former Congressional leaders).

This is the premise of a new online community and game calling itself United States of Earth. The extensive site is almost overwhelming in the sheer amount of information it provides, but centers around a browser-based war game in which a player can train and amass troops with the intention of taking over counties in Virginia. Players can also challenge other United States of Earth users in real videogames on Xbox Live or the PlayStation 3 network in order to win points to be used on the site.

Once logged in, users have access to a series of stories and videos that revolve around the fantasy setting, Stories include: Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck Found Dead in Camp, Barack Obama Retreats to Virginia With Wife, Former V.P. Joe Biden Captured Outside Arlington and The Cong Loses Control, Pelosi Captured!

Obviously setup by a right-wing oriented person or organization, the United States of Earth website domain is registered under contactprivacy.com, a service designed to protect the name of whoever registered the domain. The terms/contact page of the website lists what they call a “virtual office” in Brooklyn, New York.

Also from the terms page:

We take the Constitution of the United States seriously here and apply many if not most of the freedoms contained within to our own United States of Earth. It is a shame that America itself no longer safeguards its citizens freedom as we enter this next glorious age of collectivism and decay promised daily by those in power, Republicans and Democrats. Will America survive? Only time will tell.

Yes I have a WIP. Just wait and see.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

You know, all this "Revolution will come and whites will be oppressed no more!" crap all these extreme right-wing nut bags go on and on about has always seemed disturbingly familiar to me for some reason. It wasn't until today that I had realized where I had heard something very similar to this insanity before. I was watching this documentary about crazy cults and it hit me! Their favorite Beatles song must be Helter Skelter!

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

How dare you! No one deserves to be compared to a Nazi. Are you saying that he supports the extermination of 6 million people? Are you saying that? Because if so, then maybe you should take a step back from your computer and slap yourself. Repeatedly.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

No, what I'm actually trying to say is that he's as bat-shit crazy as a Nazi. If I had to guess at Ol' Doc Kefka's party affiliation, I'd pick Aryan Nation. But more truth be told, I do regularly and for the sheer pleasure derived slap myself repeatedly.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Yeah, I'd fit in real good with those people huh? I must be an evil vile racist because I don't believe in your commie ideals but hey even though my two sons are techically black that doesn't mean a thing huh?

 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

@Ol' Doc Kefka:

Can I ask you what exactly is a "technically black" child? Is that some kinda Techni-Color?

You do get some props, however, for spinning the old "I'm not a racist, some of my best friends are black" defense into the new "I'm not a racist, some of my own kids are technically black" defense. That's kinda smooth.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

And that's why you're a fucking idiot. "The White Male is a 3rd Class Citzen." Yeah, they only own the biggest corporations in the US, and most of the seats in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

SO OPPRESSED!

Oh, and A. even if you do have kids, and B. even if they are black, it doesn't mean jack shit. You're like that judge: "I'm not racist cause I have black friends!" Yeah, well I guess Republicans NEVER EVER have gay children, then.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Lol, if Cheney is any indicator, Republicans not only have Gay children, they have Gay Children who actively campaign against Gay Rights.. WTF?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

The White Male is a 3rd Class Citzen. Women and Minorities get more rights over men and over 70% of the jobs lost in this recession were male jobs.

When you get done typing stuff like this, do you then goose-step around the room, while saluting your swastika flag on the wall and screaming, "Sieg Heil!! Sieg Heil!! Sieg Heil!!" 'til your tonsils fall out your mouth?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Now now, don't be silly! He's not a Communist, no no, he's a "Nationalist", BIIIG difference. See, kind of like how, say, Rush Limbaugh is a Nationalist. A Communist would hate America, he (both Limbaugh, Neo_DrKefka, and well, several other GOP members) just wants to see America utterly fail and destroy itself so it can prove President Obama was a bad choice! It's like, when you beat your wife because you love her.

And secondly, what he would actually say is: "Ruhm zum Beck! Ruhm zum Limbaugh! Ruhm zum Bush! Mein Leben zur Ehre Amerikas!"

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Then again I'm a little conserned at where america is heading, a civil war that could happen. I'll just play Video games until both sides Cool down (not just Here but congress and the White house aswell)

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I don't think it'd go to that end. I think the nation would collapse on various fronts first, and then there would be the resources to launch such.

And even if it did, the North would just win again. /joke. But seriously, I think to incite an actual civil war, it would take a lot more than what's going on. At most, you'll probably end up with a bunch of smaller radical groups who go out on vigilantism, kind of like the Minutemen but with more activity. Granted, it wouldn't be good for anyone they go after, but push comes to shove, their balls will be in a vice in the end.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Technically, the South which was represented by the Democratic Party succeeded from the Union because they thought a newly elected President who was a Republican would take away their right to choose to enslave. Not to mention, they all considered Lincoln an Ape looking overly religious Republican, sound familiar?

Looks like Democratic Rhetoric hasn’t changed.

The issue is who would defend Obama is Obama choose to remove term limits and declare himself President for Life or King? Again, the Marines and the Military hold great respect for this country but when you have someone who surrounds himself and has made references to taking away rights and giving more rights to other women and minorities and telling people like me that I have to pay for the mistakes of my ancestors then yeah who do you think the Military would side with?

Congressmen and other elected officials easily break their oaths as well as Judges who rule on Empathy rather on neutrality and the word of law but our Military are god fearing people who love this country. Do we want this country to fail? No, our stance has not changed since Bush was in office, do we want Obama to fundamentally change this country and take away our rights afforded to us by the Constitution?

Yes this country with the baby boomer hippie generation has made this an apathetic and weak country but we as a people who have all the natural resources and could have the best economy are being pushed out of our jobs to conform to someone’s ideology and to tell you the truth Obama is the best thing to happen to this country to wake men and women up.

Too long have people stood silent and let a small minority hijack a political party and take over various positions and take positions that they feel we serve them rather then our elected officials serve us.

The discontent is growing louder and louder. Obama is a lame duck regardless, he is Jimmy Carter all over again but unlike Carter, Obama’s politics and Political advisors are scary people.

Again if Obama decided to declare himself Rexx or do something to really draw a line in the sand, I can see Civil War as inevitable.

Those evil white hicks lets not forget Liberals are your Police, are your servicemen you think they’d protect your Lord and Savior in an instance he became Rexx(King)?

This country needs a Civil War, too divided we are and as a Republic the tensions are boiling and soon there will be that line in the sand and we will all soon have to pick a side.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I could explain this to you, and why your wrong.  Honestly, your just a waste of oxygen in the end.

You do not understand, any of which you are talking about.  Even if I took the time and effort to explain it, you STILL would not understand.  I'm sure many before me have tried, and may after will attempt.  Much, if not all, your writing above, is more that of a psychopath, rather then a conservative.  The way things are written by you, tells me, you because more aggitated and angry, without consciously knowing either emotion was taking place.

Yes, I could easily destroy your arguements, one right after the other.  I would do it, if I took you as a mature adult.  But, the way you write, says you are neither mature or an adult.  Oh, your physical age might be higher then '9', it doesnt make you anymore right, then the rantings of a nine year old boy.

You really do not have a good grasp of the English language (or the American-English language to be exact).  Nor do you display a basic level of understanding of the US Consitution or law.  Much of your ranting is either mostly or totally unsupported with evidence.

Go look up the defination of the words 'conservative', 'liberal', and 'moderate', before posting again.  Frankly I doubt you would do this, nor display a firm understanding in your writings in the future.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

" Much, if not all, your writing above, is more that of a psychopath, rather then a conservative."

You have NO idea how many time's I've thought this same thing about Kefka.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Good thing about the Marines, they take their oath seriously and Obama and other people may take their oath seriously and then break it to setup their own Government but we always have a trusty Marine standing by.

Don't forget, for every Roman Emperor who tried to take too much power there was always a Praetorian Guard standing very close who took an oath to protect Rome first.

We all take the oath that we might forget

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

We do not pledge ourselves to the President of the United States as King! We take an oath one and all to uphold the Constitution. Everyone who surrounds this President is a Socialist or a Communist. The woman who declared war on Fox News admitted on video that her idol is a Communist Dictator who killed over 60 Million people.

Of course Game Politics had to let us know this is a right wing group but hey at least they put an Negative Obama game on for once.

Civil War is coming though, some people doubt it but people are getting pissed. The White Male is a 3rd Class Citzen. Women and Minorities get more rights over men and over 70% of the jobs lost in this recession were male jobs. We have an entire generation who cannot survive on their own and its so hard out there right now for us and they want to keep taking away our rights?

 I would of voted for Clinton over Obama. Obama being elected has woke many people up and the 'change' he has brought is pretty much slavery to foreign Governments or the loss of our rights. Carter gave away the Panama Canal which we built now Obama want's to give the Mississippi to the UN for them to tax us to use it?

There is going to be a War we are more divided then ever. Think about it Liberals, the Military in this country is loyal to the United States but they are almost all freedom loving people and backwards hicks as you call them but who will you get to fight for you? Hardly any of you have ever owned or used a Gun because you believe the Government should control and only use firearms and the only people you'd have side with you are National Guards (Maybe) and Gang Bangers who think Obama is a Black God but then again they can't shoot straight and fire side ways.

"It is a shame that America itself no longer safeguards its citizens freedom as we enter this next glorious age of collectivism and decay promised daily by those in power, Republicans and Democrats."

Yeah, they always SAY that just to sound totally PC immediately before ranting the whole day about nothing but Obama. Hipocrites, the lot of them.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

You know, as a marksmen and martial artist, im big on both guns and hand to hand combat gear, so Im a big second amendment advocate. In fact, the next weapon on my list to aquire is the civillian varient on the AK. Mainly, I want it for target shooting and speed shooting competitions, and it's a reliable, stable weapon.

that said, i think the notion that civillians should own military grade weapons is pretty extreme.

Granted, i have some pilot training and could fly a plane. doesn't mean it'd be a good idea and doesn't mean I could handle High G combat like jet pilots do.

To the extent this game is silly, i posted as such in the forums.

to the extent about obamas policies and the second amendment, Obama himself makes not effort on the subject, but those he surronded himself with? eh, dont' trust them so much.

Still, right now, it's not an issue that obama wants to get into, he has othe concerns to attend to.

If your really big on second amendment issues, then Holder and Mayor bloomberg should be your targets, not obama. also good targets, Fienstien, shummer, and the Whole freaking state of californa. seriously, they just never freaking learn.

not the enemy, least at the moment, Obama, Sotomayor ((She's a judge who follows precident, Shock and horror)), and most of the democratic party.

So chill out a bit and laugh at the silly game.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Using an Ak for competitions.  Ah yes, I went that route once upon a time, for three-gun comp.  But I got sick of losing time loading the mag (it only seems like a little time, but it's a noticeable difference from an Ar). 

Why shouldn't you be able to own a real Ak?  Surely, if John Popper can own one, you should be able to. There is nothing wrong with owning Class III weapons.  Now, owning fighter planes and whatnot, yeah, that's pushing it.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

If I ever chose to get a class 3, only one is on my list.

So i can try and convert the damn thing into a replica of the M31a pulse rifle.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Its hilarious to see someone say that they support the constitution when its been chipped away for the last 8 years. Patroit act, suspension of habeas corpus, illegal wiretapping.... Seems the only things that gets a rise out of conservatives are guns and gay people...

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

The jackass who made this woudln't be hiding his name unless he was intending for people to immitate it, IE the goal being ot incite violence agaisnt the current admin.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Oh come on. There haven't even been ANY assassination attempts against Obama yet. Any. There were several during Bush's reign, though. Once an attempt occurs against Obama that is DIRECTLY caused by a stupid flash game, then I'll concede that perhaps he was intending for people to immitate it, but I don't realistically see anyone trying to kill the President just because of a stupid text-based game if they weren't already considering it. There are a couple comments above, the ones that talk about dreaming about Beck and Rush being killed, that are just as suggestive as this website. Just because he is hiding is name doesn't mean he wants people to immitate it, maybe he just doesn't want tons of hate mail. I wish I could still be anonymous on this site, especially when I make some of the more "colorful" comments, but also so I can admit some things that I had been hiding (personal facts that I don't wish to be associated with this name).

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Really Chadachada321?

You are able to see the full information from the Secret Service, CIA, FBI and the petagon regarding assassination attempts from the past, or at current to the current president, his family, or others at the White House?

I didn't think so.  As someone with THAT kind of information, would not say ANYTHING on ANY forums, let alone this one.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

And Beck dreams of killing Nancy Pelosi.

Also no one may have fired a shot, but bringing guns to a protest hmm makes you wonder what would have happened if Obama did go outside. After watching all the protests and interviews fox news provides of their people, I wouldnt put it pass them to try. The ignorance and unitelligence that is displayed is astounding not to mention the Hypocracy ever since the switch of the Administration.

People have killed others for less than a text-based game, people have killed people for looking at them funny but even though its just a text-based game its also Propaganda so dont pass it of as random words that flash through the screen.

Pedophiles are the new Nazi / Communist. Labeling someone a Pedophile will get them blacklisted even though there is no evidence.

Murder is not a crime when done in self defense, a time of war, or when done by court order (death penalty). People cry murder when fetus are aborted. How about when the mother could die? The mother is 13 years old? The mother was raped? The child is a product of incest? Is foster care really the best answer for children who's parents cant take of them? How many children actually end up in foster care when their parents are dead beats? How many children suffer because their parents just dont want to take care of them?

A 14 year old is child when they have sex but is an adult when they commit murder?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Now this is a comment I agree with.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I take it you didn't google the phrase 'obama assassination attempt' before typing out your reply? http://rightwingnews.com/mt331/2008/08/the_obama_assassination_attemp.php And this is from a very right wing website. Not that it really matters in the context of this flash game, I just thought I should point that there have been assassination attempts.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Wasn't this the 'attempt' that was later found to be baseless?  It was just four guys, one with a G3 knockoff, who said they wanted to kill someone, and because two of them were white power nutjobs (I don't remember if the other two were or not) the local media just jumped on it being an assassination attempt on Obama?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I seem to recall one where they picked up some guys in Denver on the Day of the Democratic National Convention, just miles away, with loads of guns in their car. They had been being investigated prior to that for planning to assassinate Obama, if I recall correctly. So, yes, there has been at least one assassination attempt, and, if what I've heard from local conservatives that I know, countless threats and off color comments about how it should happen.. I think it's disgusting, to be honest.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I have just one question - can I play on the Socialist side and protect Obama from the nutjobs of the political right-wing?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Don't be retarded, do you even know what socialism is?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Based on what a lot of rightwingers say; just about anything left of center

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

How about a game where you're a socialist with Obama, and somehow time-travelled back to during the McCarthy era?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

You know, something tells me that would go against 'the spirit' of the game.

"God, is that you?" "No! It's a me, Mario!"

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

I would be fine with this, if it didn't actually reference current political leaders that you are hunting down, and if it didn't take itself nearly as seriously as it does... As it stands, it's a pathetic conspiracy filled bag of stupidity that encourages hunting down and possibly killing our currently elected officials.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for political flash games. What I don't support, on EITHER side, is the turning our current leaders into literal enemies of the state. I never supported any games that encouraged violence against that moron Bush, and I don't support games that encourage violence against Obama, either. This game turns our nations elected leaders into literal enemies of the state, accusing them of treason and attempted national subjugation. It encourages players to build armies in order to oppose them and to engage in search and destroy style missions against them. It's sickening and frightening, considering the amount of wingnuts out there who would give their life just to get an attempt to propagate violence against the current administration.

I'm not saying this game is an "assassination simulator" or anything, I know better. It's just sad that so many people get off on the idea of essentially destroying our elected leaders. Even worse, the game is spreading it's insane conspiracies via it's "Knowledge" section, which rewards players by answering "correctly" the questions about blatant lies and conspiracies like accusing Obama of killing his grandmother to win the election.

The whole thing leaves a really, really bad taste in my mouth.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Oops, forgot.  Nobody is coming for our guns.  The Supreme Court just last year reafirmed our rights to bear arms, and there's no real movement within the government to change that.  Even the conspiracy theorists' favorite villan, Obama, isn't interested in your damn guns.  When people started saying that "Obama's going to take yer guns!", I went out and bought a registered handgun.  In 10 years, I'm going to get it out of my desk, show it to my Conservative buddies, and say, "Hey, I still have my gun!"  In 20 years, I'll do the same and say, "Hey, nobody burst down my door to take my gun yet!"  In 50 years, I'll be dead, but I'll will my gun to one of these guys, with a note going, "Nyah, nyah!"

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

That's rather amusing, Arell.

Mr. Obama would never allow the 2nd Amendment to be revoked.  The whole thing regarding it, was information that was blown out of proportion by people who stood to make off handsomely.  The problem with conservatives is, once you know their fears, and how to exploit them, you have an infinite train of cash (i.e. cash cow) from a group that will NEVER question your motives.

I recall the closest bit of legal material to effect us Americans with a revoking of the Bill of Rights, was Mr. George W. Bushs 'US Patriot Act'.  Just how many conservatives came out, and opposed it?  None.  How many NRA nutcases claimed this would be evil for the USA citizens? None.  How many conservatives voted for McCain, to do, the exactly same stuff as Mr. Bush did for 8 years?  All of them.  Well, those that actually WENT to the voting booth, not just those who said they would and didnt.

 

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

The SCOTUS only reafirmed our right to bear arms by a vote of 5-4. That's pretty damn close, and far too close to be taken lightly. If the vote was 9-0 or 8-1, then I would agree with you, but with a vote of 5-4, it suggests that 4/9 judges want to take away our guns. Just saying. Sure, you'll always probably be able to own a rifle or shotgun if you live in the country, but city folk (Chicago, DC, etc) are in the most trouble, with laws putting immense restrictions (or outright bans) on handguns and other defense weapons.

Let alone the fact that we'll never be able to abolish/re-establish this government as per our Declaration of Independence's suggestion to do so. The point of the 2nd amendement wasn't to allow us to own guns, it was to allow us to own guns so that we can defend ourselves from invaders of liberty, both foreign and domestic. If we aren't allowed to own the same weapons as the military, then we aren't being provided with the same ability to defend ourselves from those that would infringe on our rights. If you ever get the chance, I would suggest reading "1984," by George Orwell. It's a fantastic read, and shows the direction that we're heading if we simply allow the government to expand continually and continue to invade our privacy and our rights. The 2nd amendment is there to protect our other rights, because the founding fathers recognized that government continually tries to infringe on our rights and that the smaller the government was, the less they'd be able to try to infringe, and the easier it would be to re-establish a government should it become too powerful.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

"If we aren't allowed to own the same weapons as the military, then we aren't being provided with the same ability to defend ourselves from those that would infringe on our rights."

You know what's funny? Let's read the Second Amendment.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

It says you have the right to bear arms. It does not say you have the right to bear any and all arms. If you want to be really technical, you could consider a simple knife as an armament, ban all guns, and still have it apply under the Second Amendment, because it does not specific why kind of arms or how many.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

And I interpret it the opposite. That you should be able to keep and bear ANY arms.

-If an apple a day keeps the doctor away....what happens when a doctor eats an apple?-

-Optimum est pati quod emendare non possis-It is best to endure what you cannot change-

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

But that is simply not only unrealistic, but also blatantly negligent. I mean, there's no necessity for military weaponry, other that to simply A. "have it" or B. to use it, and if you're using it, something is seriously wrong, even if it IS simply for "defense."

There is no logical argument you can make for owning such high-powered weaponry, and allow civilians to possess access to such.

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

Okay...what do you propose we should do if...oh I don't know...the Supreme Court Justices start becoming far more okay with blocking "offensive" free speech? If, over time, they start allowing restrictions on speech that is "un-American" or that is "demeaning towards the government"? Obviously, with the rest of the federal government supporting this, there isn't anything to protect us from these restrictions on free speech. Hell, you can't even fight it in court, because THAT could be seen as "un-American!" So, what are we supposed to do? Bend over and let the federal government continue to stick its giant, power-hungry dick up our asses? Eventually, our ass is going to be too full of dick for us to even defend ourselves, which means that before that point we have to fight back and regain our rights, re-establish a government that respects our rights. Obviously we can't do that without weapons, but if you would like to relinquish the last thing that is protecting our rights...feel free to keep trying. Don't say I didn't warn you though...look at Australia, at England...what rights to they have to privacy or free speech, when the government tells them what VIDEO GAMES that legal adults can and can't BUY!?

Re: War Game Imagines Obama on the Run

You got pistols. You got rifles. You got knives and can homemake explosives. A bullet is a bullet, and just one can kill a man. Humans are extrodinarily easy to kill, and that's proven every day.

And, what you are suggestion is a mere extreme. You cannot make assumptions based on such radical possibilities. Furthermore, if that were to happen, what do you honestly suggest? That you go against the fucking military (if it gets called in) who have tanks, helicopters, professionals?

Even if you had legal access to such military weapons, that doesn't mean you'd actually be able to obtain one, nor how to operate it. If your free speech is being oppressed, are you so worried about coming across as "un-American" that you would not bother to fight in the courts, yet, more than willing to fight with weaponry, in actual combat? How backwards that is!

No, you fight in the courts. Rulings can, and have, been overturned, even ones made by the Supreme Court. Violence is for the last resort, not the first. And even so, if you become violent, you'll only be faced with something far more superior. You will not be able to win with all the guns you got, if worse comes to worse, the military starts rolling in on tanks and armored vehicles.

Therefore, it is absolutely irrational to allow civilians to obtain these high-powered weapons. Not only are you going off a future radical extreme, but you are also going on the idea you can win against a well-establish, well-trained military with the resources you cannot ever possibly obtain lest there was a revolt within that military. The idea of owning these weapons for defense, as your defense, is a poor one. Do you honestly expect absolute mass violence, some dramatic uprising of the people in a violent overthrow of the government? No. That's a mere fantasy. The more likely would be you'd have half who say it's a good idea, because they're too stupid or ignorant to realize the possibilities of what such law could end with, and the other half who would probably become infuriated, but go to the courts, hold public demostrations, maybe even riot, yes. But not a violent militaristic overthrow of the government.

EDIT: Oh, and we have something that England and Australia do not have. The Constitution of the United States.

Andrew EisenThat doesn't mean there has to be a movie though. Having said that, I've no doubt that we will eventually get a Black Panther movie. But Stan Lee will probably learn about it around the same time you and I do.09/02/2014 - 2:34pm
MaskedPixelanteWell they have to get to him eventually. Captain America's shield didn't grow on a tree, the minerals to make it had to come from somewhere, and that somewhere is Wakanda.09/02/2014 - 2:31pm
E. Zachary KnightYes, but it has never been confirmed as in development, or even pre-production.09/02/2014 - 2:21pm
MaskedPixelanteBlack Panther's been on the short list for a while.09/02/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightIt is possible that Stan Lee mispoke. I don't think he knows everything Marvel movies. But it is a sweet idea if true.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
Andrew EisenSo says Stan Lee who almost certainly wouldn't know.09/02/2014 - 2:04pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.cinemablend.com/new/Marvel-Black-Panther-Movie-Confirmed-By-Stan-Lee-66993.html Black Panther is apparently getting a movie. And maybe one for Black Widow, even though I think it's too late for her.09/02/2014 - 1:53pm
Cheater87Look what FINALLY came to Australia uncut! http://www.gamespot.com/articles/left-4-dead-2-gets-reclassified-in-australia/1100-6422038/09/02/2014 - 6:49am
Andrew EisenHence the "Uh, yeah. Obviously."09/02/2014 - 12:53am
SleakerI think Nintendo has proven over the last 2 years that it doesn't.09/02/2014 - 12:31am
Andrew EisenSleaker - Uh, yeah. Obviously.09/01/2014 - 8:20pm
Sleaker@AE - exclusives do not a console business make.09/01/2014 - 8:03pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that, despite the presence of a snopes article and multiple articles countering it, people are still spreading a fake news story about a "SWATter" being sentenced to X (because the number seems to keep changing) years in prison.09/01/2014 - 5:08pm
Papa MidnightAnd resulting in PC gaming continuing to be held back by developer habits09/01/2014 - 5:07pm
Papa MidnightI find it disappointing that the current gen of consoles is representative of 2009-2010 in PC gaming, and will be the bar by which games are released over the next 8 years - resulting in more years of poor PC ports (if they're ever ported)09/01/2014 - 5:06pm
Andrew EisenMeanwhile, 6 of Wii U's top 12 are exclusive: Mario 3D World, Nintendo Land, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101, and ZombiU. (Wind Waker HD is on the list too but I didn't count it.)09/01/2014 - 4:36pm
Andrew EisenLikewise, only two of Xbox One's top 12 are exclusive: Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome (if you ignore a PC release later this year).09/01/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenNot to disrespect the current gen of consoles but I find it telling that of the "12 Best Games For The PS4" (per Kotaku), only two are exclusive to the system: Infamous: Second Son and Resogun.09/01/2014 - 4:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/01/beyond-two-souls-ps4-trophies-emerge-directors-cut-reported/ MMM MMM, nothing quire like reheated last gen games to make you appreciate the 400 bucks you spent on a new console.09/01/2014 - 4:24pm
Andrew EisenThat's actually a super depressing thought, that a bunch of retweeters are taking that pic as an illustration of the actual issue instead of an example of a complete misunderstanding of it.09/01/2014 - 4:20pm
