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:

http://www.fullcontactdebate.com/

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...

Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm

Andrew EisenInteresting. These throwers are different than the ones we saw in the earlier Ghostbusters prop pics. https://twitter.com/feigfans/status/62754147689817702508/01/2015 - 7:28pm

MattsworknameNomad colossus did a little video about it, showing the world and what can be explored in it's current form. It's worth a look, and he uses text for commentary as not to break the immerison08/01/2015 - 5:49pm
MattsworknameI feel some more mobility would have made it more interesting and I feel that a larger more diverse landscape with better graphiscs would help, but as a concept, it interests me08/01/2015 - 5:48pm
Andrew EisenHuh. I guess I'll have to check out a Let's Play to get a sense of the game.08/01/2015 - 5:47pm
MattsworknameIt did, I found the idea of exploring a world at it's end, exploring the abandoned city of a disappeared alien race and the planets various knooks and crannies intriqued me.08/01/2015 - 5:46pm
Andrew EisenDid it appeal to you? If so, what did you find appealing?08/01/2015 - 5:43pm
MattsworknameIts an interesting concept, but it's not gonna appeal to everyone thats for sure,08/01/2015 - 5:40pm
Andrew EisenThat sounds horrifically boring. Doesn't sound like an interesting use of its time dilation premise either. 08/01/2015 - 5:36pm
Mattsworknamean observer , seeing this sorta frozen world and being able to explore without any restriction other then time. no enimes, no threats, just the chance to explore08/01/2015 - 5:34pm
