I wonder if the Telltale/Minecraft thing was in place before the Microsoft acquisition…
I… I would definitely buy a Telltale Minecraft game.
Imagine if they made “Natsume Championship Wrestling” today. It would be Harvest Moon characters and that Gabrielle girl.
Duck Hunt on Wii U Virtual Console Dec 25. As little as I care about VC releases, that’s one I might pick up.
Another day, another “TARGET SOLD OUT OF ROSALINA PREORDERS IN 15 MINUTES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!!!>!>!!!111″ panic.
Just remembered we have another blissful eight months before everyone starts posting their tedious Dreamcast anniversary memories again.
Sony: How about if we release The Interview as a Vita exclusive?
N Korea: *checks install base* … Yeah, we’re cool with that.
Somebody should send North Korea that “This Is The End” movie, call it squarsies.
Judging from the trailers, the white leads are pitched as buffoons, but I’d still worry about easy jokes at the expense of Asians in general
The problem is that you can start mocking an entirely awful country, and end up with the same racist gags we’ve let slide for generations.
Like, I don’t know what’s in the script. But with a movie/TV show/game/whatever like this I’m on the alert.
And honestly, my larger concern is not offending North Korea, it’s does this movie make hay out of ANY Asian stereotypes/bigoted jokes.
I suppose Team America and others have travelled this ground before, which is why the situation wasn’t flagged.
Instead, they went for shock value of having the soundbite of “you want us to kill the leader of NORTH KOREA?!? [insert big yuks]”
Like, nobody thought “let’s invent a country name even though everyone will know who we mean wink wink.”
