Web Game Lampoons British Govt's Plan to Monitor Internet Usage

May 4, 2009 -

The Labour Goverment of Prime Minister Gordon Brown is pushing ahead with plans to monitor all Internet usage in the U.K.

Britain's Conservative Party is against to the plan and that opposition is the basis for t-enterprise's latest online political parody, Hands Off Our Data!

In the game players assume the role of Conservative leader David Cameron. Wielding an old school raygun, players must blast data mining spiders bearing the likenesses of Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith while allowing e-mail packets and search engine traffic to pass by.

It's like Britain during WW2, and before.

Now if Jeremy Clarkson was Prime Minister he would fix things up!

Just relax everyone. We are "in the home stretch" to use a baseball term. Old people in positions of power who don't understand this new fangled internet thing with its freedom of information that arrives from a series of tubes are going to die off soon enough. Their generation is almost done. Then the UK can finally enjoy a normal life again being run by people who have only known a world with computers and information at their fingertips.

Public apathy is still ripe so even if the old coldgers die off the young morons that via for votes and bend over for business as a job will keep screwing the people over.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Depends on how much damage the current generation does to basic freedom in the meantime, and as stated above, they are still politicians, which means they may still shoot for the votes of overprotective parents and old people, andi n Obama's case, people who won't vote for them regardless.

Re: Web Game Lampoons British Govt's Plan to Monitor ...

Just because they know how to use a computer doesn't make them any less c**ts. They will still be politicians after all.

Again, it is totally sickening to see a supposedly "free" country trying to monitor internet traffic.

Something that everybody seems to forget is that you just need to look back at history and you will so that it has all been done before.  Look at EverQuest, it is still going strong with the same game play from the past. Does anybody think that it really matters.

Goth_SkunkDespite not being a fan of fighting games I had to check out that R Mika trailer. Loved it. Still won't buy the game though, on account of Isuckatstreetfighteritis.08/29/2015 - 2:42am
MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Big PermThanks, but yeah. Not sure I wanna drop that kind of cash :P I don't even mind the sound quality of my krakens, it just hurts to wear em after a couple hours.08/28/2015 - 3:25pm
Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am
