Barack Obama and Sarah Palin in Mercs 2, WTF?

Posted by AegisOfDawn (70 posts) -

Almost guarantee that its going to appear on some conservative political show with a serious business agenda as an attack on video games. Frankly, I'd love to see Rush Limbaugh flip a lid over Sarah Palin stealing a helicoper and bombing a Venezuelan oil facility.

If Obama becomes the next president, I will never not play as Obama.

 First thing I would do is pick Obama walk up to a helicopter fly to the highest height and fall and splat on the ground but because that won't kill me in the game I will then call in a Bigfoot Monster truck and a Tactical Nuke stand under the landing car then get up and play DDR as a nuke hits my head. Then I will restart an continue on with the game. (No offensive to Karl Marx UMMM I mean Obama ).

Wow, Gmanall. You can link to a Wikipedia page. That proves your comparison right off the bat, and shows that you aren't and ignorant fool at all!

Why is there no John McCain? Last time I checked, Barack Obama was running for president and Palin wasn't. I guess this is pretty neat because watching Palin jack a helicopter was funny as hell.

They probably just wanted a male and female character.

That video made my day.  I would gladly play Mercs 2 again if I had the chance to play as either one of those candidates.

Well the DLC that adds these skins is a big letdown. All it has is 4 new missions, which aren't great.  And you can only play as Obama and Palin in these 4 missions, there is no way to get them in the actual game.  Also all 4 missions are strictly vehicle based, so you can't even see the new character skins, deeming them pointless.
