None of you know the ramifications of that event on the world.

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

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...

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.

Danny,

Coom ti O'awa fir a pint. U don't seem a 2@.

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

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

lone survivor is great..and the title song rocks

@socom3warrior Which is why I play it every night and never fire a shot. Safe in the knowledge that in some alternate digital world, JFK survived and went on to shut down the military-industrial complex and father 500 illegitimate children.

@XFactor11 Funny that, I think the X Factor is one of the UK's greatest tragedies.

 @XFactor11 Boohoo, you do realize these guys aren't even Americans. I cry my eyes out for you.

@R2C25 I hate to break it to you but that wasn't actually JFK. You must really hate WW2 games.

 @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.

Don't know if he is or not in the vid. But Danny is blatently a stoner. All good

 

Awesome video Danny as usual, always love your vids and humour. Top notch, blaze on!

 Never said anything about killing Germans. Killing NAZIs. Nazis just happened to be predominantly German. Deal with it.

 @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

 @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!

 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.
