I've decided to create a place where all the forums-goers should drop by once a day to check out stuff going on that day. Game and film releases, important sales, and general goings on. Bookmark this thread. For important stuffzes.

Yesterday an article from Fox news tore into Bulletstorm, asking if it was "the worst game in the world" and mentioning that the games sexual innuendo achievements could lead to an increase in IRL rapes. This was promptly followed with yet another discussion of the ratings system of the ESRB and the responsibility of retailers.

Personally, I feel that if years and years of Pokemom games have never led to some kid trying to shove his cat into a hamster ball and pitching it at a bully on the schoolyard, we're more than likely safe. IMO, life is full of more than enough realistically violent things all around us without delving into whether or not video games inspire us to punch our siblings. If anything, we should be looking to censor Mythbusters. They taught me how to make thermite and ice bombs.
