PETA Game: What to Play "When Plaid Goes Bad"

March 28, 2008 -
By way of ConnieTalk, GamePolitics has gotten wind of a new message game from animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Bloody Burberry employs game tech to bash the well-known British fashion house for what PETA claims is the continued use of animal fur in its designs:
Burberry may be best known for its distinctive plaid, but its use of real fur is making the design house synonymous with cruelty to animals. Burberry continues to use fur in its designs despite the fact that leading clothing retailers like Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Ann Taylor, Polo Ralph Lauren, and others have pulled fur from their stores forever.

In the rudimentary game, players move a furry critter around a high-end shop, evading security guards and spray-painting a "no fur" message on some of Burberry's expensive designs. The site also features links to PETA videos and a place where users can sign an online petition to Burberry.

LOL, thanks for that briliant rebutal, PETA thug.

PETA and Greenpeace both have the same problem: The journey has become their only purpose. They don't really want what they ask for, if they get it they'll just up the ante.

Seems fun enough, hate the brand anyway, I wouldn't be seen dead in one of their chavvy hats and supposedly "rich" clothing

First off, as much as I like animals I can't stand PETA. Secondly, what is an online petition going to do. Lastly, it sounds like a bad game.

High end fashion is a waste of time and money anyway.

Hmmm I'm not a fan of PETA at all... but I suppose the game is fair enough albeit slightly contrary to their supposed "don't really do anything illegal" position. (i.e. nothing illegal like running round a store vandalising stuff with spray paint.)

Two things though, is this aimed at children? PETA have a track record of, innapropriately IMHO, foisting their political views on kids. Second thing, if it is aimed at children are the videos linked the sort of things parents will be happy for their children to view?

Gift.

Anything to do with PETA equates to fail and stupidity.

IMHO

The game was rather lackluster. I only played it on easy, but it was rather annoying to play.

But I agree, PETA is another one of those annoying groups that could be doing something more productive. I guess they like to hang out with Greenpeace.

Spray painting? If memory serves, graffiti tagging is what got that mark ekko game banned (or was it rated higher? I can't remember) in Australia. If this is a real store that they're targetting, could this be interpreted as an attempt to incite vandalism?

As long as you eat the animal you skin for fur or leather then I see no problem with it.

PETA can go suck themselves off. Nothing more but extremists hypocrites. I despise PETA, they don't know shit and they help no one. I forgot what they're called, but there's another animal groups, who, I think, are much better.

How long before it gets called a 'vandalism simulator'? ;)

PETA needs to burn in hell, or at very least freeze to death in the giant freezers they use to store all the animals they kill.

@bugger
I agree, if animals didn't want to be eaten then they wouldn't be made out of meat. Why can't PETA understand that simple fact?

It's a well known fact that the cutest animals are the tastiest!

I'm going to use a novel, unheard of concept to these people. I won't buy the product.

Wow, no need for a petition or anything, not even need for a cheap ass game.

If Gamepolitics is covering PETA games then how did it miss this wonder of copyright infringment and inaccurate protrayal of koopas as turtles?

this is stupid while i do not like "high" fasion it is up to people who buy this stuff as to what they get not peta also it is natural for people to eat meat and vegies not just vegies

PETA is stupid, and fashion is stupid. When stupids collide.

Yuck.

I would never in my whole life support PETA - those people are insane.

I can't stand PETA, they demand too many things. You can't have your spotted owl and eated too (For the record, delicious).

PETA can suck a fart and die. Their vice president had a bovine graft when she was on dialysis.

Why do anti animal-skin campaigners never spray paint over, say, Hells Angels' leather jackets? ;)

@GoodRobotUs

Simple - they're roadkill if they ever do that.

PETA is the yuppies of protests groups. They in all honesty do more harm than good. At times they come of eco-terrorists.

Koopas aren't turtles?

Penn and Teller did a good Bullshit episode on PETA. You can check it out on youtube before it finally gets pulled down. Apparently, they gave upwards of $75,000 to a Animal Liberation Front terrorist who had in the past firebombed multiple buildings.

Taxes: what dirty secrets CAN'T you find with them?

@ myrpok

All that cruelty makes the animals taste better.

@E.Z.K.: There is a parody of the group, PETA. They call themselves People for the Eating of Tasty Animals.

If you play this game, the eco-terrorists have won.

@ myrpok

It's still up, more than likely- or at least, cuts and edits. There are a bunch of vegans going around spreading lies and trying to make PETA look better by attempting to redirect attention.

I've seen PETA-based video games before- one of them was a blatant rip-off of Super Mario Bros., where the enemy is Colonel Sanders, and Princess Peach is replaced by Pamela Anderson.
...
I'm not lying. You just CAN'T make this crap up, you'd have to be crazy beforehand.
But in any case, I'll listen when PETA realizes that meat is essential in the human diet, animals die when crops are sewn and harvested, animal-based medical research is responsible for the things keeping us alive, and that it's hypocritical of them to protest shelters for killing off animals when they turn around and do the exact same thing when nobody's looking.
I'm not holding my breath, of course.

Zach: no way, Greenpeace would be on board with wearing fur. It's all-natural and biodegradable, unlike those synthetic fabrics which are produced by evil carbon-burning corporations. Fur industry = green industry!

At any rate, I'll hop on the "PETA is deplorable" bandwagon (been that way ever since they compared a multiple homicide in Vancouver to chicken farming) but at least their petition is being run with an on-site widget instead of a link to PetitionOnline or something. Hopefully they've got someone checking the signatures (all twelve of them) to ensure authenticity. I'm all for PETA taking a big online stance if it means they'll stop bugging the seal hunters.

I personally see nothing wrong with fur, as long as the animal wasn't abused in life. Too often, "fur farms" keep the animals in small cages and poorly fed, and handlers sometimes mistreat them. But that's not always the case. Content and healthy animals have more beautiful coats, so many of those farms give their stock a decent life before they're harvested.

Besides, humans have been wearing fur (and eating meat) since... well, since we could be clasified as homo sapiens. And Fur looks good, feels great, and is quite warm in the winter. To hell with PETA and thier extremist views.

This game "advocates vandalism," but I bet you're not going to get anyone trying to get it banned. Fucking double-standards...

PETA sucks anyway.

You know, I've always found it ironic that they believe that by destroying personal property they can stop fur sales. I mean, if you ruin someone's fur coat, don't you think they're going to buy another one, thus artificially creating demand which would not otherwise be there?

PETA is the single-most easily trollable group in the universe though. Zippo Cat should get 'em every time.

Do you get to dump dead dogs in dumpsters too - like PETA volunteers?

@ Papa Midnight

Ha! I diddn't think anyone else knew about the group that IMAO started.

Isn't PETA the same organization that asked the city of Hamburg to change their name to Veggiesburg in exchange for $10,000 worth of tofu burger patties for the school system?

On the one hand, their fanatical followers provide a useful service, SOMETIMES. Like exposing that cow-abuse story in the US that resulted in the meat recall.

BUT the rest of the time, they are lunatics. There's a difference between exposing animal abuse, and being a vandal/terrorist.

@Nekowolf

I forgot what they’re called, but there’s another animal groups, who, I think, are much better.

Are you thinking of the SPCA perhaps?

Yeah! The SPCA, that's it! Thanks :D

@Gray17

The SPCA is a great organization, I don't think anyone can complain about them. Everyone respects and listens to the SPCA because, unlike PETA, they make sense with their actions and requests. They aren't demanding that everyone in the world switch to veganism or stop wearing fur, like humanity has been wearing for the last 10,000 years.

While I'm not a fan of wearing fur, PETA and all their hypocrisy can go straight to hell.

What do you expect from a group that believes milk is poisonous?

P.E.T.A.

People Eating Tasty Animals.

Ah nuts, you beat me to it >

or we can start our own P.E.T.A.

People Enjoying the Torturing of Animals.

Our 1st assignments:

Get Micheal Vick off the hook and re-open the Roman Colisseum to gladiators fighting animals.

Hell it can't possibly be harder then trying to convince everyone on the planet to not eat meat whilst coming off as nutjobs and extremists.

Oh and has anyone here ever debated someone from PETA? They fall for PETA'S BS hook line and sinker every time, they call meat eaters murderers and say "you can't call yourself an animal lover and eat meat" (I try to point out you can't call yourself an animal lover unless your into bestiality). And almost all of them have an air of 'holier than though' amongst them.

It's funny because it does nothing but alienate themselves and hurt their cause.

Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am

ZippyDSMleeWouldn't they be able to afford and get done in a timely manner a general gba emluator for the 3DS? It seems to me if they want to make money off sales they need to do it.07/31/2014 - 7:25am
Sora-ChanAmbassador program, that's what I was looking for. Anyway the other games that have been made no longer exclusive to the early adopters got updates in their software. It'll only be a matter of time more than likely for the GBA to get the same treatment.07/31/2014 - 5:35am
Sora-ChanI might be naming it incorrectly when I say "founder" i mean the program for earlier adopters.07/31/2014 - 5:34am
Sora-Chanthe 3DS's GBA emulator was a rush job due to the founder program. No other GBA titles have been released on the 3DS yet. If/When they do get around to it, they'll more than likely update the emulation software.07/31/2014 - 5:32am
Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm
