Feds fund $100,000 video game featuring female climate change 'superhero'
washington examiner ^ | january 10, 2013 | paul bedard

Posted on 01/10/2013 12:05:09 PM PST by lowbridge

A new video game featuring a black alien female superhero delivered to Earth to fight global warming is about to hit the market thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Obama administration.

The National Endowment for the Arts is funding the Spelman College of Atlanta, Ga.'s multi-episode game called "HERadventure." In the grant announcement made last year, the NEA said the story "focuses on a young female superhero sent to Earth to save her own planet from devastation because of climate changes caused by social issues impacting women and girls."

The game is set to debut on March 8 on International Women's Day.

The college's digital newspaper described the project this way: "What would happen if the societal issues affecting women put other planets at risk? Well, of course, HER, a black female superhero, would swoop in with a plan to save the universe.

Hahahahahhhaaaaa... Spelman College...who’da thunk it there were so many game programmers there just itching to get that superbigdaddy popular video game out there?

What a frigging joke.....They can’t even pay their damned bills. I can’t tell you how many times someone I know has told me “If I don’t pay them bribes, they won’t have me come work on their stuff.”

This will end up stuffing some adminstrator’s and instructor’s pocket with a some kind of lame-ass game in basic being the product.

It’s a good thing our government has no debt and can afford stuff like this.

Try diagramming that sentence. So social issues impacting females cause climate change? Here I had been brainwashed into thinking that it was SUVs.

But does the game address the overriding issue here?

Does the stupid burn?

Ye!. Yes the stupid burns. Like white phosphorous.

That’s her “superhero” look. Her secret identity is Summer S. Eve, a white dyke with hairy armpits and Birkenstocks.

She makes Rosie O’Donnell look beautiful, has saggers, and dags like Sheryl Crowe and for the same reason.

Definitely an NAPL/Industrial Humor ping!

Dudes, take a look at the picture of the character included in the original article:

Let's just say a picture is worth 1,000 words...and that, IMHO, she bears a strange resemblance to a certain 44th President of the United States, right down to the "Now you've had an independent idea and pissed me off" expression on her face. It's as if someone said, "How can we make out metrosexual President into a shower cap-wearing female Zabrak from Star Wars?"

You're right - the US has money to burn... or money's burning a hole in Obama's pocket, or it's 'burn baby burn' ... whatever.

Also nice to know liberal elites at the National Endowment for the Arts got their cut. Gotta spread that money around among the chosen ones...

Is this like Medal of Honor where we can also play as “the enemy?” Can we spatter her brains on the concrete wall with a good clean head shot?

I was under the impression that video game making was a profitable business.

Since this needs federal welfare to develop, that means that they are not expecting to sell many copies.

That all may be so, but the important thing is, would Laz hit it?

Unfortunately she fights the same evil as other superheros, but receives less points and you can't make it to the final level of the game because of the glass ceiling.

Such is life.

How does this crap happen? Who’s in charge of this stuff? We’re broke, borrowing money out the wazoo from the Chinese, considering minting trillion dollar coins, taxes just went up and the RAT’s are getting ready to ask for more and some fool thinks that this video game is a good idea.

I’m still trying to figure out whether “her own planet” is the one she came from or Earth? That other stuff is beyond absurdity, it is truly in a class of insanity all to itself. All the more amazing is that those who came up with this garbage undoubtedly consider themselves to be brilliant scholars.
Speaking from 68 years of experience I estimate that the average sharecropper with a sixth grade education sixty years ago was smarter than the average recent college graduate simply because the sharecropper was exposed to far more real world experience and maybe one percent of the MISINFORMATION.
