A New Kind of Trash Talk

Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 9.52.33 PM

Alright Duck fans, want to see something that will make your blood boil? Game designers, known as A Flat Miner Studios, have recently created a game based off of a childhood favorite: NES’s Duck Hunt. The new game, titled Ducks Hunt, depicts Oregon Ducks flying over a poorly animated football field where you, the game player, have a chance to shoot down the duck.

Upon shooting the duck, the famed FSU fight song plays while an FSU player raises up a dead duck. The game is created by Jesse and Jodi Slade, who appear to have relation to FSU since Jodi is mentioned on the FSU booster page.

The game, although clearly meant to be a joke, loses its charm pretty quickly. The one thing it certainly has going for itself though is that it’s an excellent form of trash talk. Sure people can reference stats and game footage- basically anything they want to argue why their team is better- but FSU certainly has a leg up on the insulting video game front.

I think it’s time for the Ducks out in the engineering program to work on a special winter project. Here’s a link to the game if you want to check it out and have yourself a quick laugh.

    I think that is pretty darn clever and downright funny. Exactly the kind of good-natured fan trash talking that is part of college football (rather than the mean-spirited variety so common everywhere). Well Done.

    Can’t wait to see what happens when the Ducks swoop in low armed with Mariota bombs!

      I caught a 5 pound bass last week using an Oregon duck jersey

        Sorry, Larry. That was neither clever or funny. Just kinda dumb. Keep trying though.

          you got to admit that they have the worst looking uniforms in college football, and they change them every couple of weeks, and they just get more, and more ugly. I do however like the green jersey, for new years day, it will hide all the grass stains that your quarterback will be covered in. I just hope FSU doesn’t hurt the little fellow, we don’t want any excuses. Oregon will get the honor of being the first team out of the playoffs. I think you get a blue ribbon that say’s ” participant “, but it being blue Oregon will paint it sunflower yellow, and diamond plate it. Good luck Thursday, just trash talking a little, I mean no harm.

            Better, Larry, better. But your poor taste in fashion is only eclipsed by your poor taste in football teams. I will look for you back here on Jan 2. You may grovel and apologize at that time, provided you decide to even get up that morning. :)

            Good luck to your boys. May both teams play well and stay healthy.

            Go Ducks! WTD!
