Well it seems the idiots attacking violent games never stop, do they? On the heels of the idiotic study into so called violent games “effects” on kids  set up by Senator Jay Rockefeller, We have my state trying to start the same old nonsense again. A politician in MA has decided that it would be a good idea to start a biased study to study the effect of games on kids again…. Right after MA stalled their bill aiming to restrict violent games so they could not be bought by adults. These “studies” popping up everywhere get to me. Because just like all of the other game attacking studies, these are bound to be biased, and engineered to show a certain result. A lot of other studies are funded by the Center for Successful parenting, a group that has this in their mission statement “We aim to motivate leaders of <insert tons of industries here> to change culture so violence is not shown to children” basically meaning “ban violent games”, because changing the culture of violence can only done by removing the violence.

 

The current studies by Rockefeller and this idiot in MA are troubling. The Rockefeller study, has language in it’s text that tells that the studies can find whatever results they want, because it asks if the violent games have any “new” effects on kids. After the brief but stupid moral panic surrounding child molestation and it’s nonexistent link to violent game playing, spurred by that Preacher Boykin and Ralph Nader, I wondered if they could use the vague language in the study to find that violent game playing leads to child molestation and pedophilia.  To see what the Study in MA does I  looked at the text of the study closely…

 

I got the text from this source:

 

 

 

 

“That a special commission is hereby established for the purposes of making an investigation and study relative to video games as  a form of media and as a training tool. Within that context, the commission will focus upon video games that allow the player to  simulate severe battery or killing (“killing games”). The commission will study, investigate, and provide conclusions regarding:  (i) the social benefits, impacts and implications of video games in general and killing games in particular, comparing the impact  on youth with the impact on adults; (ii) the use of video games as military training devices, educational devices, and other training  applications; (iii) how video games compare to other forms of media in terms of their ability to recreate a realistic experience, to  desensitize the consumer, to train the consumer to accept certain ideas, and to teach the player new skills or capabilities; (iv) the addictive quality of video games; (v) any connection, including any exposure t or imitation of behaviors exhibited in video games,  between killing games and actual violence, including rampage killings that have taken place since 1990; (vi) the reasoning and  conclusions drawn in the majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions in Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, as well as  other freedom of speech considerations relative to the regulation of video games, in light of the conclusions drawn by the commission  pursuant to (i)-(v); and (vii) the anticipated cost of any proposals to regulate video games. The commission members will play or observe killing games directly during the course of their investigation.”

 

So this study wants to see if games are an effective training tool. We’ve been told BS in the newspapers from the hack psychologists that violent games are being used in the military to break down the inhibition to kill. But this blog, written by a military trained soldier debunks the whole thing. I quote:

 

“I’m not aware of any military unit that uses video games to break down the inhibition to kill. In fact, this breakdown really only occurs in one place:

Boot camp.

 

Boot camp doesn’t even specifically concentrate on the inhibition to kill. Rather, they follow the CIA training manual for brainwashing almost point  by point, in order to instill in recruits ‘instant and willing obedience to lawful orders’ – that is what they do. The assumption, of course, is that these orders may be to kill; But they could be to drag a wounded child to safety, or set up a bunker in 100 degree weather, or pull night watch  after being up for a 36-hour convoy.

 

The inhibition to kill can only be broken down by, wait for it . . . killing.

 

The fact that the studies author is bringing this nonsense claim up to the Government is proof that the the government is trying to ban violent games again, IMHO. It must be stopped before it gets to the 90 day phase (see below), or we could have a MA ban on violent games to adults. Not to kids.

 

 

“The commission shall consist of: the Governor or a designee, who shall chair the commission; a member of the general  public appointed by the Governor; 3 members of the Senate, chosen by the Senate President, 1 of which is a member of  the minority party; 3 members of the House of Representatives that are chosen by the Speaker, 1 of which is a member of the minority party; 1 constitutional lawyer who specializes in freedom of speech; the Massachusetts Attorney General or a  designee; 2 psychologists or psychiatrists, at least one of whom is a mental health professional specializing in addiction;  the Secretary of Education or a designee who is an educator; a member of the military who engages in military training;  a representative of the video game industry; and a representative of the law enforcement community.”

 

At least one of the people involved has a bias against violent games if I am right. They mention “a member of the military who specializes in military training”. This fits one of the Hack Psychologist to a tee. Another Hack Psychologist could be in it too if I am right, “1 constitutional lawyer who specializes in freedom of speech” sounds a lot like a retired anti-game activist everyone in the community hates to me. They also mention how they need to study the impact of the proposed regulation on free speech, probably as a cheap way to see how they can make a constitutional law that causes violent games to not get in the hands of adults, such as the Oklahoma tax on 1% of all property every time someone in OK played, stored, bought and otherwise consumed violent games.

 

They also want to study how violent games have caused mass killings like columbine (I assume). Whats to stop them from not believing the nonsense spread by the idiots in the government, the media, and unknown parties that says violent games influenced Harris/Klebold/Lanza, etc? Such things include the Doom will become reality hoax and similar “tidbits of information” that seem to make it look like mass killers played violent games but this info is badly written at the least, and is outright lies at the worse.

 

“Legislative appointments shall be made not later than 30 days after the effective date of this resolve. The chairperson shall  meet with the full commission not later than 90 days after the effective date of this resolve. Members shall not receive  compensation for their services but may receive reimbursement for the reasonable expenses incurred in carrying out their  responsibilities as members of the commission. Upon appropriation of sufficient funds, the commission shall engage professional “advisors as needed to accomplish its purposes. Not later than 270 days after the effective date of this resolve, the commission shall report to the general court the result  of its investigation and study and its recommendations, if any, together with drafts of legislation necessary to carry its  recommendations into effect by filing the same with the clerk of the House of Representatives. ”

 

We have 90 days to stop this, gamers.  I want every gamer in MA to write their Representatives, using this message:

 

“Dear Representitive.

 

I am your constituent, and I am alarmed by the  study our senate has started dealing with video game violence and the whole idea that the effects on kids and how violent games are a training tool for the military needs to be studied. For years studies like this have been done and many are methodologically flawed, using cheap ways to say violent games lead to  violent behavior or aggression, such as subjecting the violent game playing kids to electroshock therapy. It’s very important to note that any evidence that violent games cause real life crimes has to be doubted. There are many hoaxes going around and media fabrications that make it seem like violent games cause real life violence. If you do a google.com search for the “doom will become reality hoax” you will find a blog debunking a claim that was used to “prove” eric Harris was influenced by the video game Doom while shooting up the school. This claim is a hoax, a fake website said “doom will become reality” and the FBI proved the site was not Eric Harris’s real site. Also many claims are spreading that violent games break down the inhibition to kill. These are false claims spread by 2 anti-gaming activists in the 90’s and the below linked site debunks them totally. The site is a blog ran by a Soldier in IRAQ, telling how violent games could never break down the inhibition to kill, and only Boot Camp obedience training does this…..

 

http://designsynthesis.blogspot.com/2005/03/training-our-kids-to-kill.html

 

I find it disgusting that the government would spend millions of tax dollar money on a bill that would have restricted violent games to minors so adults could not buy them. There is no reason to studythe false connections between violent games and Real life killings, all invented by the media and anti-gaming groups. The hoax mentioned above was used as “evidence” against  the industry in an Anti-Gaming Group’s Amicus Brief.  This group is from the Midwest, they are called the Eagle Forum, and they are pro-religious zealots who think violent games should be banned to adults and gamers should all be dealt with somehow.  They were trying to fool the Justices in the SCOTUS to think this evidence is real and not a hoax. One of the people championing the break down to kill “theory” is a zealot former lawyer who once said on the gamepolitics forums that all gamers need to get the Death Penalty. If you plan to study these things, you must be sure NOT to be swayed by these types. For they tried to sway the EMA vs BROWN Case and others….. I just don’t think this study is a good thing because it looks like people like these kinds of people are on the group conducting the study. I don’t like the idea of fake evidence being used to sway any people to believe this nonsense is real. A study like this is almost impossible to be Not swayed by people like this. I am against it for this reason, and I hope you are too.”

 

 

Send this message to your Representatives, gamers. Maybe we can get them to stop this now… If it doesn’t work, I urge people to resend it over and over again, till they stop the study. Flood their Inboxes over and over again, till their network slows down, if they fail to listen. It’s important to stop nonsense like this.

Well.. Reading gamepolitics.com lately has not gotten me much to work with, story wise. But this article has me scratching my head… Basically the Deputy UK prime minister is saying GTA (and probably games like that) turn people into addicts who live in their bedroom or living room and don’t talk to people, becoming “hermetically sealed”….. This is the last time we need more of this BS! You know why?

 

Whether Nick Clegg knows it or not, he is helping to perpetuate the stereotype that all gamers are sociopaths. Sociopaths that only play violent games, aren’t social, don’t talk to anyone, and just play all day, isolated from others. Stuff like this re enforces the nonsense that gamers are sociopaths, cretins, low lifes, etc. I know most gamers are NOT sociopaths. The ones that do do not make a majority. Saying all gamers live in their bedroom reminds people of Adam Lanza, who was reported by the Tabloids to have lived in his basement. To their mind now, Clegg is making gamers look like criminals.  It’s pathetic and it has to stop. I play only 2 hours of Video games per day, I am a social person. I don’t need nonsense like this to be spread. It’s bad for all of us… The more people stereotype us as living in isolation, or any stereotype really, the worse it will get..

 

What really gets me is how Nick Clegg decides to complain about how he can’t limit gamers gaming type through any law or edict near the bottom. Because people like him love to regulate us as much s possible, but since the unfortunate fact that his Country is a Free Country, he unfortunately cannot do that. Anyone like this should not be in office. Who elected him? People who don’t like violent games? It makes me wonder. Do we really have world leaders complaining about Freedoms that get in the way of controlling people because they view those people all as sociopaths and school shooters?

 

While reading gamepolitics.com, I came across the below article, talking about how the Whitehouse is not considering attacking the industry (thankfully) for the Navy Yard Shooting. So I started reading the comments, and came across one commenter who kept on spewing nonsense about violent games over and over again, and after reading his crap again I realized something. He is really not who he appears to be, in fact he is actually an anti-gaming crusader using a fake name. I won’t reveal his probable real identity but gamers who know who he sounds like know how that person behaves.  Here are a few quotes from him:

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/congress-video-game-violence-navy-yard-97131.html#ixzz2fZo0xKpg

“Sorry to bust your bubble but your wrong. In Paducah Kentucky, the 14 year old shooter had never fired a gun before his murder spree, except for once the day before. He played violent video games where it showed him how to aim a gun. He shot his victims with such accuracy that the only explanation is the video games taught him how to shoot so well. Look it up for your self. Not all kids that play these games end up killers, but all these killers played these violent games!”

This is one of the biggest BS claims going out there right now. That Micheal Carneal learned how to aim just from Playing Doom. There are tons of problems with this. First of all, doom at the time lacked vertical aiming. A random number generator determined how high your bullet went. You have no control over how high you shoot at all. Explain how carneal hit 3 of his targets in the head then? He couldn’t have. He fired 8 individual shots with semiautomatic pistols that don’t fire multiple rounds when you hold the trigger down, and hit 8 kids in the head or chest. Doom trains you to hold down the mouse button down, your gun in the game will fire multiple times. All of the guns do. Unlike anything but full auto guns in real life. After killing all the enemies in the current room you let go and rinse and repeat in the next room, etc. If Carneal trained on Doom, he would fire one round while holding down the real guns trigger and no more shots would fire, and would not be able to hit all 8 targets at all.

Another thing is that this poster claims is that lots of mass shooters played violent games. Only 4 have. Harris/Klebold, The Norway Killer, and the Navy Yard shooter. 1 News paper tried to claim Cho (V-Tech Killer) played Half-life (meaning counterstrike I think), but the neighbors of Cho said they never saw him obsess over “violent” games. Adam lanza was quoted by some plumber in a Tabloid to have played call of duty because “people who play call of duty know about realistic models of tanks and weapons from ww1-ww2” because of the posters showing Weapons and Tanks From WW1-WW2. No other proof given. To me that’s proof he Did NOT played COD. James Holmes played Some RPG’s (oblivion, etc), all Sword fighting games, combat wise. He killed people, with a gun. That doesn’t work.  The norway shooter said he used COD to train for the massacre. That’s it.  One other shooter said he played “Guitar Hero”. Is that the morons definition of a “violent game” now? I guess it’s because of the Heavy Metal and it’s fake Satanic cult who molests kids who happen to be part of every Metal band and metal Fan worldwide… Go Figure.

“Look up the work by Col Dave Grossman. He trains our military on how to kill people. He knows what he is talking about.

“Grossman argues that the techniques used by armies to train soldiers to kill are mirrored in certain types of video games. The conclusion he draws is that playing violent video games, particularly light gun shooters of the first-person shooter-variety
(where the player holds a weapon-like game controller), train children
in the use of weapons and, more importantly, harden them emotionally to
the task of murder by simulating the killing of hundreds or thousands of
opponents in a single typical video game. Grossman uses blunt language
that draws the ire of gamers—during the heights of video game controversy,
he was interviewed on the content of his books, and repeatedly used the
term “murder simulator” to describe first-person shooter games.”
As for your assertion that this has been tested… nice try. You are wrong!”

Col Grossman was a shrink from the Military. He had NOTHING to do with training people to kill. Boot Camp does. The whole idea that violent games are used to break down the inhibition to kill is debunked by this blog, not written by some “gamer druggie”, but a person who actually served in the military.  I quote his lengthy debunking below:

“Let me give you some background. I am coming out of a four-year stint in the United States Marine Corps. I spent six months in Afghanistan and two months in Iraq (crossing the Line of Departure a mere 72 hours after the word was given by the President).

While not in a combat unit, every Marine’s primary job is basic rifleman. We are all considered trained enough to put steel on target when the lawful order is given.

Video games are poor training tools. For anything, really. I think the last games I learned from were Sticky Bear Math and Number Munchers.

I’m not aware of any military unit that uses video games to break down the inhibition to kill.

In fact, this breakdown really only occurs in one place: Boot camp.

Boot camp doesn’t even specifically concentrate on the inhibition to kill. Rather, they follow the CIA training manual for brainwashing almost point by point, in order to instill in recruits ‘instant and willing obedience to lawful orders’ – that is what they do. The assumption, of course, is that these orders may be to kill; But they could be to drag a wounded child to safety, or set up a bunker in 100 degree weather, or pull night watch after being up for a 36-hour convoy.

The inhibition to kill can only be broken down by, wait for it . . . killing.

When we were parked on the outskirts of Fallujah and watched as night fell and the Iraqis came out onto the streets, even though our orders were much more liberal than the current Rules of Engagement, there was still hesitation. And this after our convoy had turned around after taking fire at the front.

When we got ambushed, it was actually unfortunate that my extensive game-playing hadn’t prepared me at all for the sheer confusion, excitement, fear and horror of those moments.

If you think America’s Army is anything but a half-decent game and a lame recruitment tool, you’ve never run an obstacle course, or been ‘quarterdecked’ by a DI.

If you think Halo can help you learn how to shoot, you’ve never tried to get ten in the black from 500 yards with the piece-of-shit M16A2, with your elbows getting ground by sand trapped in your cammies and the sun causing sweat on your forehead which drips into your eyes.”

One more quote by the anti-gaming activist pretending to be a politico.com poster with a fake name:

“Trust me I hunt, competitive target shoot and have a concealed pistol permit my self. Just look at my profile pic. It’s of the late great Col. Carlos Hathcock. I also play these same video games. I never blamed guns as the problem and never said all people that play these games are going to be killers. What I am saying is when you add these games without parental supervision, mentally unstable kids, etc… your going to get a few killers in the outcome.”

The fact that the same anti-gaming activist has called gamers “Junior” like this guy (read the comments he has said), and has berated gamers in emails, just like this person proves they are the same person. They are virtually Identical. There is no way this guy plays violent games. If he did, he would know the BS he spreads is NOT TRUE…

I have suspected for years that anti-gaming activists have been spreading nonsense like the Hack Psychologists claims under fake names, after I read several posts by odd people quoting his claim. Now I know the truth…. It IS happening. It’s quite disturbing. Why the hell groups like this allow people like this do do this kind of crap is beyond me.

Well lo and behold, this new moral panic on the nonexistent link between violent games, and the Navy Yard shooting hasn’t fucking ended. It got 500 times worst, folks. Wayne Lapoopiere has reared his ugly fuckin’ head again!!!! This time blaming the shooting on the yet to be released GTA V.

“The evidence against Grand Theft Auto is not to be disputed. Clearly, excitement over the imminent release of this game led Mr. Alexis to commit celebratory murders… Either that, or [Alexis] was going on a ‘practice run’ in anticipation of playing this degraded piece of garbage.”



Obviously, Lapoopiere has had his head up his ass all of  his life because it’s plain to see that Mental illness caused this shooting. I quote


Alexis had been suffering a host of serious mental problems, including paranoia and a sleep disorder, and had been hearing voices in his head, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation was still going on.”

How could anyone call games “degraded pieces of garbage?” I have no clue. It disgust me. Games =/= Garbage! It’s fucking assholic! Wayne Lapoopiere is no better than the rest of the anti-gamer fucktards out  there.

“at anything other than Grand Theft Auto V for this tragedy is morally irresponsible,”


You mean, that blaming GTA 5, a game that couldn’t have caused the massacre is NOT morally irresponsible? Stop smoking Crack Lapoopiere! It’s just an agenda by these deranged gun nuts who helped to create the Sandy Hook Shooter to cover up  their role in the shooting. Lapoopiere should be held accountable, not the NOT YET RELEASED GTA 5! The next quote is the worst of the bunch…



“It’s high time Congress and our president backed sensible video game regulation. Anybody that wants to purchase a copy of Grand Theft Auto V must undergo a background check, a psychological evaluation, and a five-day waiting period. Most importantly, all copies of the game must be kept under lock and key when not in use.”


What the Fuck?! We need background checks, psychological examinations for people buying violent games now! Since when has anyone actually found ACTUAL proof that Alexis even played them? If you take all the BS the media spreads that says ALL the shooters in mass shootings were violent game addicts as the truth (it’s not), you still get a mere 0.00% of all gamers have had any violent crimes associated with  them. There are 211,000,000 gamers world wide this year alone, and only 2 has killed people according to the media.  So all copies need to be kept in lock and key? Even OUR OWN BOUGHT COPIES? WTF! Someone needs to throw Lapoopiere in the fucking insane asylum for talking through his ass…. Do we really have idiots like this who would do what he wants in our administration? I say we do!! It’s fucking idiotic!!! NONE of those 211,000,000 need to get background checks and psych evaluations!! NONE!!! JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP WAYNE LAPOOPIERE!



In other news, the site that posted this garbage article kept on giving me this crap every time I tried to copy quotes from it, showing up in  the bottom of the pasted text every single time!!!. Unwanted advertiser assholes they are!! sigh…

In the wake of the newest mass shooting on a (surprise surprise!!!) Navy base, everyone is talking about their made up link between the shooter and “uber violent video games” and how his friend says he was an “obsessed gamer” (more on  that later). This has caused FAUX news to attack violent games Again!  A conservative moron named Elizabeth Hasselback is spewing nonsense about how there is a link between the 20-34 demographic and “video game violence” and how “we” (USA) needs to track video game purchases and, because this is NOT a gun control issue, It’s a “violent gamer control issue”! Like every single one of us is a violent psychopath in the making, not the mere 0.0% percent of gamers that are violent psychopaths, statistically (more on that later).

But you talk about this guy’s background, as we look into it,” Kilmeade continued. “He’s got a friend, who said, ‘Yeah, he had an obsession with video games, shooting video games. In fact, he would come over and he would be playing so long — these video games, these shooting games — we’d have to give him dinner, we’d have to feed him while he continued to stay on them.'”

“Are more people susceptible to playing video games?” Hasselbeck continued. “Is there a link between a certain age group or [demographic] in 20- to 34-year-old men, perhaps, that are playing these video games and their violent actions?”

 

OUR VIOLENT ACTIONS?! WTF! Last time I checked, only 0.0% of gamers are even violent! Out of 311,000,000 gamers worldwide in 2011, only 2 killed people! Only 9 out of however billions who played since 1997 have killed people. It would take1.6 MILLION shootings per year for 10% of gamers to be violent!!! Meanwhile a gigantic 41% of smokers get lung cancer. Hardly a strong link..

“What about frequency testing?” she added. “How often has this game been played? I’m not one to get in there and say, monitor everything, but if this, indeed, is a strong link, right, to mass killings then why aren’t we looking at frequency of purchases per person? And also, how often they’re playing and maybe they time out after a certain hour.”

So she wants people to be MONITORED for playing violent games. Not just any people. 20-23 year old men, like non-20-24 year old women aren’t capable of mass killing either.. Sexist asshole! You might say that monitoring people who play games is impossible, but with Malicious software anything is possible. If indeed someone in the senate supports such a plan to monitor 20-34 MALE gamers with spyware, it’s not good for us. What’s really scary is this quote Hasselback said. “And maybe they time out after awhile”. What is timing out? It is left to interpretation. The gamer or the game. If it is the game, does this mean she is trying to get people to remotely hack PC’s/consoles to shut  them down after a while? If so, that’s the most disgusting thing I have heard. Just because YOU THINK THERE IS A NONEXISTANT LINK DOES’NT MEAN YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO TELL ME WHEN I GAME AND HOW LONG I CAN GAME FOR!!!’

Rant mod aside, I find it disgusting that Fox news is acting like gamer haters again after several untrusted Media outlets have said the latest shooter was an obsessed gamer. At least once the media has lied about a claim like  this. During the V-TECH shooting aftermath, one newspaper printed a quote from an anti-gaming mogul  that was more  than likely fake claiming Cho played Half-life. I just don’t  trust media outlets to NOT LIE about BS like this to use it against the industry.  If the latest shooter was a gamer, don’t print some fucking BS statement from “one of his friends” when “his friend” is just made up. IF there is a REAL LINK to violent games, PROVIDE PROOF! Don’t just make up BS!!! It’s disgusting, and so is this idiocy from Fox News, even more disgusting if they suggest violent games should “time off” after a while….

It seems this country has to keep spewing nonsense over and over again about a non-existent link between video games and real life violence…  They wait till everyone is not thinking about it and use crap like this to attempt to start another video games moral panic. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t…. But it’s fucking stupid and it must stop…

A murder in Australia,  has been associated with violent games.. The police have supposedly searched the killers twitter posts to find out he played call of duty…  Like call of duty may have impacted the killers decision to shoot 3 people for the sheer fun factor of it…  Well.. When you go to the shoutbox on gamepolitics.com (where I found the article), you get an article linked in it which links to another article by an Australian News site mentioning gangs… Gangs aren’t even mentioned in the fox article linked in the shoutbox. It seems Faux news has no problem with leaving out information that proves games had nothing to do with the killings when they want to pin games as the SOLE REASON… For moral panic reasons!!!!

To make things worse, there is a video in the article which part of the Faux news “medical team” rambles on about his completely bogus theory that every big mass killer since 1999 is addicted to violent games… That’s mentioned in the first article I linked… This idea is preposterous, there is no proof to back it up, whatsoever. Sure Klebold and Harris among others played violent games. But the proof for V-TECH, and others is a media Fabrication coming from newspapers like this. The one person linking V-TECH to Counterstrike said an article which used HIS evidence was the proof. He basically cited himself saying that there was a link when there wasn’t.  In fact there is NO evidence to suggest the following people besides Harris and Klebold and Lanza were addicted to violent games…

(Eric Harris, Dylan Khebold, Seung Hui Cho, Jared Loughner, Anders Brevik, James Holmes,  the eight-year-old who accidently shot his grandmother recently and the three teens who murdered an Australian tourist too)

Anders brejik was a TERRORIST who mentioned video games make great training tools. There has been no evidence to suggest he was addicted, same for James Holmes, or the rest of the list as well. None but Harris and Klebold have ANY link to video game addiction, it’s bullshit.Anders played World of Warcraft, far from your average Violent Game.  James Holmes played Guitar Hero. Is that their latest “Violent” game to attack now? Really… This is stupid….

To make things worse, the medical “Expert” claims that the medical industry has found “proof” that there is a link between real life violence and video games, and has gone out to say that link exists, even though NO study has found a causation link between violent video game exposure and real violence. The ones that attempt to find a link between violent games and aggression are extremely flawed and biased… My YouTube censoring life radio show goes into the studies a lot more… This “trusted source” then went on claiming that violent games were drugs and we need warning labels put on them, like that’s gonna do anything…

This pisses me off. The last thing we need is a “trusted source” (who isn’t) starting a moral panic on video game violence after it has cooled off!!! This kind of stuff is what was rampant on news stations after columbine and  the moral panic skyrocketed after that… It’s frankly, disgusting….

For today and the next 2 days, I am alone in my house, which is not something that usually happens. So I decided to write some new music, and do a lot of videos in a format of a youtube video radio show, talking about debunking nonsense about violent games, talking about any and all video game legislation, media spread nonsense, and any similar topics. It will air on youtube every weekend, on Sunday or the Next Monday (after being recorded the previous night).  I will occasionally go into off topic topics here and there, but for the most part, it will be video game controversy related…

 

Enjoy
