Re: To everyone that mocked me for my love for Sega...

I'm not one to mock Sega, but I never liked Virtua Fighter. Lame characters, uninspired scenery, and in my mind, the bastard that killed the fighting game genre by introducing 3D. I'll just stick to...

Re: Jack Thompson Compares Killer 7 with Mein Kampf

My dad's cousin is an attorney in Miami, and knows Jack Thompson. He says he's actually a smart guy, but is indeed completely out of his mind.

Tuesday has come and gone. What news in Ohio?

We missed Wakka and Lulu as Vidina's parents (FFX2).

Re: Videogame Vixens, or how to suck any maturity gaming has left out the window

I decided to stop watching upon learning that Mai Shiranui was not included in any of the categories.

Re: Videogame Parents

Actually, Cranky Kong, who is the original Donkey Kong, is the current DK's grandfather, and Donkey Kong Jr. is therefore his father. Diddy is just a friend, he's a monkey while the Kongs are...

Re: Official Proof That Uwe Boll Lost It...

Thief has, simply put, the best storyline of any game, and is screaming to be made into a movie, but unfortunately nobody could really do it justice. It has to be done perfectly to work.

Well to be fair, even Spielberg or Tarantino would have a hard time turning Postal into a respectable movie.

Re: Gerard Jones Assails Anti-Video Game Legislation

Great article. I hope some California Assembly members sat up and took notice. We need more Gerard Jones' and Henry Jenkins' to come out and argue our side.

Re: Anti-video game legislation isn't an American thing...

Just look at a lot of anime. Rurouni Kenshin and Samurai Champloo, in all their glory, are as bloody as any video game would get.

Re: Anti-video game legislation isn't an American thing...

Disappointing, but nothing we can do. With legal, constitutional, and cultural differences existing between countries, what we say won't make a difference over there. That's why I try to keep my...

Re: Talk about E3 buzzkill...

Sources on the IGDA website said that the DC bill, to be heard on June 15th, is scheduled to pass unanimously. This is why I was worried about Illinois: the possibility of a domino effect leading to...

Re: Talk about E3 buzzkill...

I had Uhlmann confused with another researcher in either Sweden or Belgium with a similar name. Anyway, that study, again uses a weak proxy at best to measure "aggression" and justify a causal...

Re: Talk about E3 buzzkill...

I am familiar with several of these studies. Many have serious problems with validity, either applying it to the real world, or not measuring a relevant factor.



This study doesn't even deal...

Re: Talk about E3 buzzkill...

If you look at the details of the bill it does not enforce the ESRB ratings. It creates its own rating system in addition. The courts have even ruled it unconstitutional to force a voluntary rating...

Re: Some bad news, some good...

I have no doubt that if either of these bills do get passed, they will be defeated, and create even more precedent against future legislation. It's almost like a case of "having cancer is good...

Re: Some bad news, some good...

I'm not going to start celebrating just yet, as the bill can proceed on if Horton can be convinced to vote for it by the end of the week. I don't know anything about him, but I just hope he'll stall...

Re: Sony Must Halt Manufacture of PlayStation Consoles

Shouldn't they just be forced to stop making the controllers? Why do they have to stop making the consoles too?

Thank you, Jeff Wiese

Run for the hills, Thompson & Co. are exploiting yet another tragedy by an abnormal individual.

Re: Not good...

You say that all you do is identify similarities and react in jovial fashion. This doesn't seem dangerous, as you said in your previous posts. Jovial fashion does not equal dangerous behavior.

I wish that were true. Unfortunately, it never works out that way. The International Game Developers Association addresses that point below:

Re: Under the "Jack Thompson Speaks Japanese?" file...

Japan typically has a relatively high threshold for media violence, as at least their TV and movies are way more graphic than the US, yet they have way lower murder rates.

Do you have any more...
