Anti-Hillary Site Features Boxing Game

March 30, 2008 -
Whack-a-mole, boxing and martial arts knock-offs?

Sigh... 

Can't web designers come up with more innovative game metaphors for the presidential race?

In any case, we take note of Political Boxing at anti-Hillary Clinton site StopHerNow. The domain appears to be privately registered, so we're not sure whether the site was created by Obama supporters, Republicans, or some other group.

Got to agree with Nerkowolf here. Looks about the same quality as the boxing games ads for free ringtones.

My favorite's joecartoon.com's Blender. That one covers all candidates.

Is it me, or do they both seem to have very thin ankles?

*yawn*

If you're gonna knock off boxing, at least rip off Punch-Out

Meh, I'll stick with 3 AM CoD.

The site isn't likely to be done by Obama supporters- the anti liberal slant would alienate many of the core Democrat voters that Obama needs.

I love the "The Truth" link on the page. Every single jackass from across the political spectrum is always using the word "truth". They can't all be right. As soon as I see someone using the word "truth" I tune out- they already are full of crap.

Yay. Another political fighting game. I want something original please.

I support the notion that political games must differienciate themselves.

How about a Magic: The Gathering type game?

I like the Magic idea! tap + 2 republican mana: rig voting in florida

MTG is a great game but would be extremely difficult to turn into a web-based political game. But I'm still digging the idea. After all, MTG is the best game in existence.

The problem with this type of thing (and the same goes for Whack-A-Mole) is it's very limited in it's statement. It would be one thing if the creators gave the fighters moves that reflected the real candidates in some way. But Hillary straight out boxing Obama. What exactly is that saying?

magic the gathering can be used more for references than an actual game.

Still no political web game is better than Bushgame. And that's VERY sad.

I'm with everyone else...I'm a little tired of the same game types with different sprites attached.

That's why I'm pretty interested in a 3D game in development called Full Contact Debate. I've been following its progress, and think it's a nice change of pace:

Sorry for the plug, but I figured a suggestion is needed considering the topic.

I don't know where this demand for grand, interactive entertainment on a political website is coming from. This is just a stupid Flash game that's meant to be a three minute diversion; why would anyone invest more time than that for a non-commercial footnote? So they can be the next JibJab or Obama Girl?

For more Hillary coverage go to bluespotblog.com

I wouldn't necessarily say that people are looking for a "grand, interactive" political game, they're just complaining about the prevalence of fighting games and other recycled ideas. It's possible to make "a stupid Flash game that's meant to be a three minute diversion" and still be creative.

Maybe they could make some sort of game where the candidates are virtual pets or something.

I think a racing game could work well. Each candidate could have their own selection of vehicles - a big imposing SUV for Hillary (with Bill driving), maybe a studebaker for McCain, a magnum-style ferrari for Obama (trying to work in that hawaii connection)... Could have guest appearances from Mike Huckabee on one of those honda scooters...

Maybe make it Mario Kart-esque...

Ugh, to echo the general sentiment; no creativity...

@Dave

I think what we're really looking for is a 3 minute diversion that took more than three minutes of thought, that's all.

Wow... Boxing... No one would have EVER thought of that...

...Moving right along...

Matthew Wilson@AE I know I was just stating where I stand on issues like that in general04/27/2015 - 8:12pm
Andrew EisenWho, Colin Cowherd? No one's suggesting he should be forced out. Or that he should commentate on video games.04/27/2015 - 8:10pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I do not think he should be forced ou though. he has his right to his opinion and shouldnt be forced out because people disagree with it.04/27/2015 - 8:07pm
ZippyDSMleeJim suggjested a pay what you want setup like humble bundel.04/27/2015 - 7:49pm
MontePerhaps they should just add a donation system for creators like the monthly pateron model. Only those who regularly make quality content can get compensated while those who would abuse the system are ignored04/27/2015 - 7:46pm
MontePaid mods is not a bad idea; i mean its only fair that makers be compensated and even better if they can do it full time. UNfortunatly there is too much that can go wrong and room for abuse04/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Andrew EisenYeah, working on that story now. Or rather, I'm working on finding time to write up that story.04/27/2015 - 7:40pm
Matthew Wilsonhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dll8eMJnTEE this crap is why sports fans and gamers dont get along. for love of god did I get sent back to 1995.04/27/2015 - 7:37pm
Matthew WilsonI do not think it will be the last time we see this. btw I am ok with paid mods.04/27/2015 - 7:10pm

ZippyDSMleeMatthew Wilson:Humor and sarcasm sir.04/27/2015 - 6:36pm
Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm
ZippyDSMleeCutesy name for motherboard. My 300$ mobo fried itself one night...04/27/2015 - 4:23pm
Andrew EisenNo problem. No idea what a mobo is but it's easy to overlook stuff in the Shout box.04/27/2015 - 4:18pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen:Ah sorry, last 2-4 days I been dealing with a dead mobo then my new laptop came in trying to get it up to date and stuff transferred over....blag04/27/2015 - 4:16pm

ZippyDSMleehttp://www.polygon.com/2015/4/27/8503893/konami-delists-itself-from-new-york-stock-exchange This just in Konami and Capcom merge so they can ignore more IP's.04/27/2015 - 3:50pm
E. Zachary KnightNot really. I think people are overly critical of other game projects. Delays should be expected and shouldn't be considered a major failing and worthy of the crap they get.04/27/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew WilsonI agree that Double Fine gets off way too easy compared to others.04/27/2015 - 2:40pm
