EA Game Release

Montreal, Canada - Electronic Arts (EA) announced a free online game that will be available starting June 1, 2011. The game, according to a press release from EA Montreal, will be about the 2012 Republican Presidential candidates. 

“The game features video clips, photographs and press clippings of various announced, potential and fictional candidates in the United States. The player will see and hear these people say things, and they will have to decide from a list when this occurred. Then, they will have to decide how the candidate changed positions,” Yves St. Claude told us when we asked about the content.

“There will be stages where the player determines how the candidate changed positions. Another stage will ask players to match a picture with the candidate, helping to generate interest in election.”

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, when questioned about the game, said, “Anything that promotes the Republican field for president helps our cause. It helps us to remove the greatest threat to America ever in President Obama.” Priebus returned to trying to learn the names of the candidates.

“We think the game offers a challenge to players, and will be educational. It will be updated constantly with more information as the race takes shape,” St. Claude continued.

The game play is far more interesting than any of the candidates who have declared for the race for president. Some of the videos are absolutely hilarious, particularly of those who have had more media exposure.

The game will be free through Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. The Wii version was scrapped after the Wiimotes began to self-destruct.

Annabel Lee is a freelance journalist for the Baltimore Fake Times Journal. She has announced that she is not running for President in 2012, and she is open to being a Vice Presidential candidate if someone is open to a Democratic Socialist on the ticket.
