game

Oh wow… this is real:

Inspired by the best kinds of bar games (ones with simple rules that become more enjoyable the longer you play), by goofing around, and by my generation’s childlike enthusiasm for that piece of gray plastic, Super Russian Roulette (SRR) is a brand new party game for the NES. One unhinged 8-bit cowboy is prepared to call you yellow, call you crazy, mourn your death, or kick up his boots for the last time. One bullet waits in the light gun’s chamber. You, up to two friends, and The Cowboy take turns passing the pistol, spinning the chamber (or not!), and drinking to your own demise (or not).

Super-Russian-Roulette-NES-Nintendo-KickstarterIncredibly, at the time of this post there are 852 people who put forward $66,606 to potentially fake shoot themselves in the head or cheat death.  The topic of the game itself I find uninteresting, boring, and dark however it’s really neat they are making an actual working NES cartridge game, utilizing the Zapper to top it off… in the year 2016.

This comes on the heels of yesterday’s Nintendo Zapper Glock post.

Thoughts?  You interested in dropping $55 on the kickstarter to get this game?

An interesting concept called “Receiver” by Wolfire games:

A video showing the updates and guns that were added:

Made in only 7 days as a part of an FPS game programming challenge.  Shoot drones, and turrets while manipulating your 1911, Glock, or revolver realistically using the mouse and a lot of keys.  Nice touch that they made the Glock with an auto add-on.  Available over at Wolfire Games at an introductory price of only $5.

Receiver-Gun-FPSThe fact it’s an FPS without the P (person) is interesting until you realize that there’s basically just an “invisible” person.  Decent looking game for $5 nevertheless.  I like the fact that it’s open source too because if it catches on there are a lot of people that will do some really awesome stuff for it.

Terrible looking product, worse video demo:

The alcohol is kept in 1 out of 6 chambers in the revolver. You have the gun tilted up and pull the trigger… if you hear a click you’re dead (the alcohol chamber aligns with the barrel)… so naturally you put it up to your mouth tilt the handle upwards and pour the alcohol out into your mouth.

After seeing the video, I associate the product with douchebags trying to look and act suave.  If that’s what you’re going for, and mock suicide firearm related games are your thing, then by all means head over to Amazon and pick one up for around $15.  You might be playing Russian roulette with your wallet though because the reviews are mostly terrible.

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted about Russian Roulette games, or Alcohol guns:  See Balloon Russian Roulette, Alcohol Gun, and the Beer Blaster Gun.

A revolver based pin popping party game for those with a dark sense of humor:

Are toy firearm related games that break the 4 rules of firearm safety OK?  Is this any different than kids shooting each other with water guns?  Probably not, although since this game has suicide connotations pulling the game out around certain people might not yield the jovial reaction you were hoping for.

 Why not personalise your game like us and put whipped cream or chocolate sauce in the balloon before inflating it. Messy but hilarious!

What a massacre that would be.  I’m surprised they didn’t suggest ketchup!

If you want to see the product in Action check out this scene from controversial movie God Bless America:

If you’re interested you can pick one up over at Amazon for $17.99

A fun RPG parody of HBO’s The Wire:

hahah at the Clay Davis “Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit”.  The whole video is loaded with other good references, so make sure to watch it if you’re a fan of the show.

As I’ve said in the past, if you haven’t seen The Wire, do yourself a favor and head over to Amazon and pick up the boxed set.

New Apple game called Ready Steady Bang:

Pretty simple game, you play against a cowboy in a duel.  Pretty cool that people are getting rich off these 99cent iDevice games.  

Rant:

I really don’t feel like I’m missing by only having a Motorola Xoom, which by the way still holds the spot of being the #1 best electronic device I’ve ever owned.  The hardware is incredible, and the software is made by google… so yea it’s amazing too.  

I’ll probably never buy an Apple product again.  Not because of the quality (it’s obviously top notch), but because of the restrictions (both software and hardware) on all of their devices.   Yea you can get relatively cheap 3rd party cables and software, and even jailbreak the phones… but why should I have to pay or do some work to make the device function as it rightfully should?
