always nice to see a couple of idiots laugh about one of America's greatest tragedies real class guys
I would love to play the reenactment of your families assassination, and laugh while I hit them bullet by bullet. By the comments that I read I believe more about video game corrupting people mind. It just shows violent games are not for everybody. A friend told me once beware of a person that shows no empathy for another human being. Psychopaths. How humiliating is this for the Kennedy family? It would be a nice game if it didn't involve names of actual people or actions that happened in real life and traumatized millions. There is a limit for jokes in a civilized society. Respect others.
For even more terrible laughs, there are some incredibly buggy modded versions of JFK Reloaded that turns the bolt-action rifle into something akin to an M-14. It also adds a rather large crowd of clones that watch the motorcade go by, and let me tell you, there is nothing like seeing the bullet-riddled presidential limo drive onto the sidewalk (running over dozens in the process) in order to escape from you. XD
Well today was one of those "I am going to hell moments" I am a very pariotic american....but geeze that JFK bit was just......funny.
How can it be worth while to play the assassin that killed kennedy... let alone think its a good idea of a game
dang it danny i hated the noise the old modems made back in the day did you really had to bring it back? lol but great show like always
Releasing a game the same time as a big hit it's almost a commercial suicide. Like EA releasing "Need for Speed World" the same Day Starcraft 2 was released.Or more recent: Sonic 4 part II the same day Diablo III hits the streets.
Don't understand that kind of marketing, honestly...
@Warlord_Irochi Sadly smaller developers on Xbox Live Arcade have little control over when exactly their games get certified and are released. Awesomenauts is another example. We'll be featuring that next week.
@dannyodwyer I wanted to ask you if you thought Awesomenauts shared the same fate as Splatters but now I know you already care! Awesomenauts is amazing, I've always hated DotA, LoL, and HoN because of the elitist players and extreme learning curve and Awesomenauts fixed all that. Inded game of the year!
what happened to video games being art? killing jfk? ART.... Less sarcasm, I'll bet 90% of Americans posting on here didn't know that he truly shot the governor.
the Jfk game was one of the most disrespectful games ive ever seen...but ofcourse it was hilarious and earned a download from me..the worlds a twisted place..
Ha to login just to comment : You can high five a zombie of high seven or six depends how many fingers they got left.
Somehow splattering JFKs head off is "in poor taste" but shooting a German in the balls is just great like they're somehow less of a human.
americans , you either dislike them or you're one of them, tertium non datur
Never said anything about killing Germans. Killing NAZIs. Nazis just happened to be predominantly German. Deal with it.
History is written by the winners. You'd be amazed to find nazi's were also human, not more evil then you and me. Maybe more amazed to find out they had no choice but to do as they were dictated. Or be imprisoned/summary executed in a forest. So your argumests don't stand, my friend, don't discriminate.
@Dragdar jfk assassination was an "Actually" event that rocked a nation. Sniper elite v2 is fiction, not hard to see the difference
@Dragdar lets remember that particular german agreed with massacring people..... makes it a bit different
The dial-up tone brings back such bad memories, it's physically painful to listen to. Please pick a new sound byte! Otherwise, great show.
Oh my god that was so funny! :D
Am I a bad person if I enjoyed seeing digitized JFK getting killed in various ways? Yeah, I know it's not real but you get that horrible feeling, you know?
All this assissination high jinks, I know I shouldn't laugh because it's so wrong, BUT IT'S SO RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME! :D :| DX
Also, extra point to Danny for mentioning Skullgirls and The Splatters, they're one of those good games that hardly any has heard about amidst all other titles :3
