Jimmy Hopkins: So how do I do it, Pete?
Pete Kowalski: Do what?
Jimmy Hopkins: Beat those rich kids into submission?
Pete Kowalski: Well, what have you tried so far?
Jimmy Hopkins: Random violence, widespread destruction, gratuitous sadism.
Pete Kowalski: No, no that’s not gonna work - they get all that kind of stuff at home.
I love playing Bully the video game. It’s so addicting for me that play it every year around this time when kids are returning to school. I went to an inner city public high school, and I hated that place so much. I loved my friends, but I hated the environment. I always wished that I could go to a New England private school in a small town, and be able to wear super cute uniforms. This game brings all of that to life for me.
There is new word in this last month that a Bully 2 may be in progress. That Rockstar recently filed a new trademark bearing the name “Bully”. I can only hold my breath and wish it to be true. Maybe they were only renewing their license for the name. Even though it has been 7 years since it first released, it’s still possible they would return to the title and continue the franchise. They did it with Max Payne, there was a huge gap in between sequels.
For now this old favorite I play on my Wii will fulfill my nostalgic fantasies, and inspire new creative thoughts. Just imagine what Bully 2 would look like on a new console, I sincerely hope that the creators would stick to most of the original themes of the game.
Secure that wrist strap tightly, I’m ready to punch out some Bullworth jerks.
So here I am, at probably the worst school in the country, whose
alumni are nothing but arms dealers, serial killers, and corporate
lawyers. Real scum. And that old creep thinks he can tame me? We shall
see my friend. I only give people what they have coming to them.
