Mecha-Men we want to fight

Nobody likes Hitler. Mecha-Hitler, on the other hand, is irresistible. Maybe it’s the extra chainguns. Maybe it’s his over-sized armor. Whatever the reason, more metal seems to make boss fights more fun. Unfortunately, Mecha-Hitler - and his tiny toothbrush mustache - won’t be making an appearance in the next Wolfenstein game. But that can’t stop us from dreaming of other mecha-men we’d like to fight, right?


Why we want to fight him: He may not have been the best president. But if we have to fight an army of goons who speak Engrish as a second language, we want George W. Bush to be “the decider” who leads them.


Why we want to fight him: Because we’re afraid of him, okay? Bill O’Reilly is a scary, scary man. And since games have seemed to help us overcome our fear of gigantic mushrooms and floating gold coins, we figured they could help us come to terms with our phobia that people actually listen to this guy.

    Okay everyone, calm down now. I was just saying that I thought his comment was uncalled for. I had no intention of stirring up this mess. The idea was for gaming to be a place out of politics, which is why I thought that his post was out of line. We all (at least I do) play video games to get away from real life and do something fun and entertaining. There is no need for politics on either side of the isle absorbing us and drawing us into petty arguments that have no place here. We all just need to calm down. While I don't agree with Tyler's views, it was a funny article and I respect that. It is only when people get out of hand that it becomes inappropriate for the gaming community. I don't mean to be a hyppie :), but this is one area where we all need to relax and live together in peace.

    Yeah, you guys really need to keep the articles free from political crap. Video game sites are the last place I want to see this stuff. Its great that you want to kill a few virtual conservatives but just keep that to yourself. There is enough decisiveness in America today (even with the "great uniter" in office). I could probably overlook the political tones if the article had an ounce of humor in it, but the funniest thing you had was mocking a handicapped guy. I usually find GR articles to be really humorous but this one just totally missed the mark.

    way to sound like a liberal nut through the first page of the article. mecha-obama would be better, id be super fun to kick his ass, hes been in office less than 2 months and hes already screwed so many things up.

    Ty looks looks like he needs help & demonstrates it by showing he's a lib. Spends so much time in the virtual world he's lost his way or was led astray long ago! I didn't know this place was a lib haven, will will be leaving ASAP. I go to games to forget the real life, not to hear some social retard regurgitate his politics!!!

    Robo O'Reilly will "Do it Live!!!"
  • Sly_Fox - March 13, 2009 4:55 a.m.

    that pretty funny and entertaining

    To Montag: WTF?!?!? I don't care if you disagree with Bill O'Riely. I really don't. But taking it that far is going over the edge. I may disagree with you, on a great many issues no doubt, but comments like that are not necessary or civilized. Oh, and before you call Fox News evil or Ultra right wing, look at the rest of the media. The reason it looks right? Everyone else is uber left!

    LMAO but still this article was pointless
  • MacGyver1138 - March 12, 2009 4:03 p.m.

    For the guy who wants a Robo-Jesus, you should check out some of James Rolphe's (AKA: The Angry Video Game Nerd)videos on Cinemassacre. In his "remake" of the Wizard of Oz, and in his Super Mario Bros. 3 review, he featured Super-Mecha Death Christ 2000 BC version 4.0 Beta.

    Engrish as a second language, that must be me. However, isn't Bush the guy whose native language was Engrish?
  • NelosAngelos - March 12, 2009 2:35 a.m.

    All your Bush are belong to us...I'm not touching that. I'd wanna fight a Robo Ryan Seacrest or Robo Dane Cook. It would be so satisfying to shoot RPGs at them.

    mecha stephen hawking is my new wet dream. I need to get into game designing so I can do this now. and i WILL make you beat him to death with his chair. that's metal. captcha: b-52's convinced. we should fight mecha versions of them too.
  • LordRevan111 - March 12, 2009 2:27 a.m.

    Any game that would let me destroy those two retards on page one is alright in my book
  • Defguru7777 - March 11, 2009 11:46 p.m.

    What about Robo-Lincoln?
  • Tasty_Pasta - March 11, 2009 11:28 p.m.

    Haha, the Robo-Robocop made me laugh so hard!

    Minor correction: Stephen Hawking has ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease. Love the article!
  • Z-man427 - March 11, 2009 9:09 p.m.

    good but short. what about a Mecha-McCain. kick his goiter right off his neck
  • MikeOkizard - March 15, 2009 6:20 p.m.

    I'm not talking about enforcing this or anything, I'm just stating that I would prefer that gaming sites stay out of the realm of politics. I come to this site to get info on games and have a laugh, not to see someone pushing their politics in my face. Politics are just too divisive. I mean, as soon as you start mixing politics with everything it's tough to draw the line. I mean, what if one of the writers did a funny little article on abortion or something. Talk about a buzzkill. Yes, they have every right to do so, but it just doesn't belong on a gaming site. Just as I wouldn't expect to see a political commentary on a site like ESPN, I also don't expect to see it here. I'm all for free speech, but just because we have the right, doesn't mean we HAVE to use it to its full extent. If the site decides to keep putting out articles with political tones that is their right. But they should understand that they will start losing readers, myself included. By the way, I hate O'Reily and I wasn't a huge fan of Bush either. I just don't want to see this site turn into a propaganda machine.
  • Indiana Jones 393 - March 15, 2009 1:53 a.m.

    Well, if it is an honest opinion, I don't see why we should restrict the thoughts of the the people who created this site. Can we even do that? Even if we tried, it is their property and they can run it as they see fit. While I do believe it would be beneficial to be bi-partisan or keep politics out of this site as a whole, people are entitled to their own opinions and we must respect that. I know that most of the people in this country right now are of left leaning nature. HOWEVER, we must maintain the right to freedom of expression, and things like this must be maintained. My initial post was meant to curb some of the aggressive comments against Bill O'Reily. I am not, however, against the seperation of politics and this site. While it would be better in my opinion if some of the articles were less biased, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Let the men who write the articles and run the site do as they will. It is part of being a part of this great nation that gives us the freedom to do that, and this I support. And besides, good ol' George has said some pretty weird stuff. :)
