Labour’s new online game

Labour’s new online game is hilarious. Choose whether or not to take the options presented and see the results. Politics is all about choices 🙂

And, once you’ve played, remember to sign the anti-asset sales petition.

  1. Lanthanide 1

    I would go with “incredibly strange and weird” rather than “hilarious”.

    The star wars one in particular makes no sense for either result.

  2. Simon Poole 2

    For given values of hilarious, I guess.

    Personally, I found it pretty crap. Humour for 4th formers (not that they’d get half the references anyway) packaged as a political campaign. This just reminds me of the “tax-master general” ad that National ran in ’05. It was lame then, this is lame now.

    I am hoping Labour can do better for the campaign proper – New Zealand deserve it.

    • Blighty 2.1

      It’s an online game, not the centrepiece of their campaign. It’s meant to be fun and it is. Not everyone is like us and wants to engage in lots of serious discourse on political issues. This is a way for Labour to do something that gets their attention.

      • Simon Poole 2.1.1

        I never said it was the centrepiece. I said that I hope Labour can do better once the campaign starts. So far we’ve had stop signs and this, which doesn’t bode terribly well.

        And I don’t think that this is going to get the type of attention Labour want, but that’s just me.

        Finally: For an unthinking machine, THE STANDARD has a terrible sense of humour.

        • lprent 2.1.1.1

          Has nothing to do with the machine. THE STANDARD is the slightly shortened alias for the user notices and features.

          It is used for putting up posts that none of us authors put any
          original thought into. In other words when we reprint features from other sites or we publish notices.

          I could demonstrate the concept to you of an alias by changing the handle on all of your comments to the the more accurate one of FUCKWIT CRITIC. Do you need the demonstration or do you understand?

           

          • Jim Nald 2.1.1.1.1

            Go on … you know you want to.

            Call a spade, a spade, and that kinda thang, y’know.

            That reminds me. It’s time for another wee donation to The Standard 🙂

            I’ve cancelled all subscriptions to the NZ Herald and Dom Post and can contribute to this site.

            • lprent 2.1.1.1.1.1

              All donations are gratefully accepted. But I tend to reserve that particular tool for the identity hijackers and persistent trolls. If I did it for useless critics then I’d have to work too hard.

          • Simon Poole 2.1.1.1.2

            You make your point very clearly and on a very regular basis, Lynn.

            Mine was simply this: You get angry at people referring to “The Standard” as an entity with a sole opinion – and fair enough, you’re not the Borg. However, when a post like this goes up, who do I address? There is no author, yet *someone* thought it was funny. I mention The Standard and you go apeshit. It is your website and you’re welcome to do what you want, but the hyper-aggressive response when I have no one else to address is ridiculous.

            I’ll admit that my first run through was coloured by getting Star Wars, Aliens and Hopoate – even when clicking “lets not” the results were, literally, shit. As a left-leaning member of the voting public I was simply expressing my opinion that I would hope Labour could do better once the campaign began – lord knows New Zealand needs it. This offering is pretty juvenile and I would have hoped for better.

            After clicking through a few times I’ll admit that the Garden of Eden, Trevor v. Tau and Chuck Norris are some of the better offerings.

          • Gotham 2.1.1.1.3

            Simon, you were being too kind.

            This game is the lamest thing I have ever seen. Actually, I haven’t really “seen” it, I spent about 15 precious seconds of my life looking at it and then decided that it wasn’t worth the effort.

            Labour GOTTA do better than this.

            • pseudopanax 2.1.1.1.3.1

              I’m still not certain who the game was supposed to appeal to, I had a phallic lightsaber Luke, a gastrointestinally afflicted astronaut, a bikini granny, and some other puerile thing that’s slipped my mind already.

              It was embarassing.

          • Gotham 2.1.1.1.4

            Fuckwit??

            Fuckwit??

            Really??

            What a totally unbecoming over-reaction to someone who was essentially only expressing an opinion about what is, to many many people, a lame, stupid, unimaginative, waste of time “game”.

            You probably needed to have a little sit down before writing a retort to Simon’s comment. You just bombshelled in my personal opinion of you and I won’t be so interested in what you have to say about anything anymore. Prone to exaggeration and inappropriate over-reaction as you have just shown yourself to be.

  3. Colonial Viper 3

    Labour’s putting the party back in Labour Party!

    PS yes I have to say that some of the humour was definitely not my taste. Would not have liked to have had this game released in the last 2-3 months of the campaign, but now its just a bit of fun 🙂

  4. Graeme 4

    so much for the red teams anti violence campaign…..what was the slogan…..Its never ok to use violence….

    and this is the team that would be Govt, what a complete pack of fucking idiots they are

    • Colonial Viper 4.1

      Its never ok to use violence….

      Meh, it’s sometimes OK to use violence. International law says so.

      You’ve mistaken Labour for a bunch of bleeding heart pacifist liberals. We have Mallard on the team for starters, just ask Tau 😀

    • PeteG 4.2

      I thought the violence aspect was poor, the rest was just naff.

      I missed the bit that qualified it as a game.

      • Blighty 4.2.1

        violence aspect?

        If you’re complaining about the Chuck Norris one or the Mallard v Tau one, I recommend you don’t watch anything on TV, even children’s TV. You’re libel to come over all faint.

        • Tigger 4.2.1.1

          Sorry Pete, didn’t realise you were a pacifist. I’m with Blighty, probably best to shut yourself in a room with no media if you want to avoid any content that might disturb.

      • Blighty 4.2.2

        PeteG. If the ‘violence’ in Labour’s game has you in tears, how do you feel about the rightie game where you can kick Trevor Mallard?

        Surely playing such a game should be illegal, eh Petey?

  5. happynz 5

    …erm…ditch it. No worries, I’ll still vote for my local Labour guy despite this.

  6. Richard 6

    Oh come on, it is quite funny. Especially the Don Brash / Alien bit.
    Lighten up.

    • Lanthanide 6.1

      That bit got a laugh from me, but more of a puzzled/confused/’that was unexpected’ laugh than a ‘wow that was clever and funny’ laugh.

      • Richard 6.1.1

        Actually now that i see more of it, there certainly are a few cringeworthy moments.

  7. Graeme 7

    i am not surprised you sycophants think thats ok.

  8. Graeme 8

    it isnt the violence, its using the image of a govt minister whose govt of the time was running an anti violence programme. said minister was involved in a fight and was convicted for his part in it, now they seek to glorify him as some sort of hero…
    so….is violence ok according to the red team or not??

    [lprent: Can I suggest that you go and ask Trevor Mallard that policy question. After all he is a Labour MP – we are not. I’m sure that he will be kind and considerate to you because I suspect he will think that you may be a congenital fool.

    The site’s posts are written by the people of the left – see the about. We really are uninterested with you displaying your complete lack of knowledge and prejudices about the left or even the Labour party. Persistence in trying to assert directly or indirectly that this site is a mouthpiece for a political party of the left will result in you getting a sanction from the policy.

    BTW: You really are a humorless git. I’d hate to run across you in real life because I’m sure that you could put almost anyone to sleep by droning long and with complete ignorance about things you know nothing about. Are you aware that is how you look here? ]

  9. Graeme 9

    yep, the mighty mallard vanquishing the blue team…..thats exactly what they want their voters to see….

    • wtl 9.1

      All hail the might Mallard. He made Henare, um, disappear! After what looks like a martial arts sparring session…. Yes, very much glorifying violence. /sarc

    • Lanthanide 9.2

      Try clicking on “not” and see them snuggle up together, or something.
       
      I guess this is part Helen’s homosexual legacies shining through? I don’t know, you’re better at making that short of shit up than I am, I’m sure you can come up with some pseudo-outrage.

    .
    Bottom of barrel – meet scraper.

  11. bobo 11

    Alot of humour police around, its just a light hearted viral which links nicely with the stop asset sales sign campaign. More please.

    • QoT 11.1

      But that’s the whole problem, bobo. It’s designed to be viral. And getting that right is a task that not even really onto-it marketers have managed to master. Trying to engineer a meme like this just isn’t going to resonate with the only demographic who *get* memes – cynical young middle-class types with a lot of time to waste on the internet (proud member here).

      I mean seriously. A Rebecca Black joke? Might have been semi-relevant a month ago …

  12. Graeme 12

    Wow, i touched a raw nerve.
    it must really smart backing a horse thats as lame as the red team.

  13. Gareth 13

    The Greens launched a new little game today too. It ain’t as flash and is a bit old school compared to Labour’s but hopefully you like it: http://www.greens.org.nz/lignite/game

    • TightyRighty 13.1

      seriously? coal tetris?

      or is that the only game the smelly hippys have really caught up with?

      don’t move with the times to fast do you, something to do with your aversion to cars?

      • Lanthanide 13.1.1

        At least it’s actually a game.

        • QoT 13.1.1.1

          With an actual point, too. Just struck me how trying to meme-ify the phrase “Let’s not” just cements Labour as the “mummy says no” party … *headdesk*

    • Deborah Kean 13.2

      I love it! Tetris is the most addictive game ever, especially for someone with not-very-good sight, like me…

  14. burt 14

    I simply can’t believe that Labour are making a joke out of Mallard fighting with Tau Henare. Ordinary people get fired for throwing their fists around in the workplace but it’s apparently funny when Labour people do it. What a disgrace!

    • Colonial Viper 14.1

      It’s hilarious mate! If you can’t look back and laugh at shit which has gone on before you must be carrying a lot of baggage.

      • burt 14.1.1

        Sure it’s funny in itself. I just don’t think it’s a good look to remind us Hoi Polloi that what we would get fired for they take the piss out of. Plus Trev the Muss beats Tau, I’ve no doubt all Labour lovers would agree but I’m not so sure – go on, tell me that makes it even funnier.

        • Colonial Viper 14.1.1.1

          Ahem, MPs get fired and reprimanded for a lot of shit that ordinary workers don’t get fired or reprimanded for, so it cuts both ways.

  15. chris73 15

    Its main crime is that it looks cheap and isn’t that funny (apart from the star wars bit)

    • Blighty 15.1

      yeah, they should have forked out more money for a wee online game. Good thinking chris73.

  16. So who was the intermediate school pupil that came up that?
