TLP: It's Like a Glitter-Bomb, But You Can Do It on Your Couch
I'm not a gamer. Back around the time I was literally a paperboy, I had an Atari system that would be called "old school" except it was new out of the box at the time. I was good with the joystick. Like teen-aged boys are.
I've had the opportunity lately to spend some time on JDA's PlayStation 3 and I seem to do all right, with her encouragement. ("Press the big button. The big button. Yessss! That's it! Good boy!")
Here's a game I could get into and probably manage on my own. Which is good, since she might not find the objective as politically appealing as I do.
A new video game is giving players a chance to explore a post-apocalyptic Fox News studio and kill off zombies that resemble famous conservatives including Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck.They're all riled up over at National Review Online. From the comments: "I marvel at how lefties excel in the use of dignified civil discourse." Meh, it's just a game. It's not like putting political opponents in crosshairs in an actual election. Or urging supporters to "RELOAD!"
The game, called "Tea Party Zombies Must Die," is project by StarvingEyes Advergaming, a website that provides games for online viral campaigns.
Other characters in the first-person shooter include the "Generic Pissed Off Old White Guy Zombie," the "Pissed Off Stupid White Trash Redneck Birther Zombie" and the "Express Racist Views Anonymously On The Internet Modern Klan Zombie," who dons the remains of a KKK robe as he wanders around with a sign that describes President Barack Obama as a Muslim.
But beware, the presidential campaign is under way. I hear Democrats and other "lefties" have a secret weapon. Things could get sparkly out there.
