Anti-Fur Blood Bath Goes Cartoon in New Online Game

burberry_fur.jpg

Like that commercial years ago where a runway model wearing a fur coat suddenly begins spewing blood all over the audience, this new game from PETA lets you pick an animal and run around a Burberry store spray painting fur-clad mannequins while security guards attempt to hunt you down.

There are three levels. I got through the first one and bailed on the next two but it was a fun little time waster.

'Hazard Lane' is the Reason Why You're Going into Foreclosure. Seriously.

hazard-lane.jpg

This is a game called Hazard Lane. It was put together by TAMBA for Landmark Information Group. (We like how the title tag says "Landmark Information Group Presents 'Fair Game'" when "Hazard Lane" is emblazoned in green across the top of the page. Somebody must've missed an email.)

The object of the game is to buy expensive property by propelling real estate agents out of a car. And just for kicks, you have to avoid environmental hazards.

We don't get it. In fact, we think it's the lamest thing we've ever seen. And because TAMBA had the gall to try disseminating it anyway, we're going to use it as the scapegoat for the mortgage crisis.

For Kylie Time, Just Dodge the Boss

kylie-paris.jpg

Ever fantasize about one-upping your boss? Forget about scoring a machine gun and leaving life in cubicletopia with a parting gift of unhinged chaos. Play Dodge the Boss instead. (For best results, do it on his or her dime.)

The game is simple but delightfully time-consuming. Use your mouse to avoid the boss-men without touching any of the sides. Dodging the boss as long as possible could land you tickets to see the sultry Kylie Minogue in Paris.

How's that for leaving the office in a blaze of glory?!

The game was disseminated by Rubber Republic and put together by Global Radio for Galaxy FM's "Love Music Love March."

Screw the Drama. It's Dance-Off Time!

Dance2DC.jpg

Dance2DC is a new game by Shift Control for Barely Political. (Visit the site to play it and/or watch the video that inspired the madness.)

We don't know much about it aside from that Hillary is a disco fever inferno and Edwards channels John Travolta. Then it hit us: wouldn't life be better if we banished ballots and decided everything with sudden death dance-offs?

You can fake a smile, but you can't fake the funk.

Geeks Get Game on With Intel's 'Robo Brawl'

intel_robo_brawl.jpg

Even IT (information technology) geeks need their advergames. So Godfrey Q and Partners were kind enough to create Robo Brawl. Oh yes. A smack down in which robot parts fight against each other in the ring. to gain Xeon points. Xeon being Intel's kick ass chip for workstations.

As it's explained to us, "You have to weigh the pros and cons of various robot parts (transportation, armor & weapon) to get the best performance possible in the ring. You're also able to use "Xeon points" to boost your robot in ways that are related to energy efficiency, virtualization and performance - the Xeon attributes Intel wanted to promote. Through-out the game, the players see signs and video that reinforce our Xeon message. So the longer you play, the more the message sinks in."

those who place in the top three slots will win Xeon-powered workstations.
