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...

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am

MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
E. Zachary KnightInfophile, Tha is why I buy only DRM-free games.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
MaskedPixelanteNordic is back on GOG for one weekend only. And at 85% off no less, which is kind of a slap in the face to people who paid more during the "NORDIC IS LEAVING FOREVER BUY NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE" sale, but whatever...12/19/2014 - 9:28am
InfophileRe PHX's link: This is one of the reasons the digital revolution isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's also the flip side where Sony can block access to games you've bought if they ban your account for unrelated reasons. All power is theirs.12/19/2014 - 8:52am
