Videogames are created by Satan
Videogames are created by Satan

It's a little difficult to tell where the line between hyperbole and seriousness is, but in this piece on The Orange County Register, Marla Jo Fisher begins her story declaring, "I truly believe that video games were created by Satan to turn otherwise normal children into his drooling, glassy-eyed stooges."

Out.com's "gayest" video games list
Out.com's "gayest" video games list

Out.com, the official website for Out Magazine, has recently published their list of the "gayest" video games. Looking over their selections, I have to say their choices are a little… interesting. And by interesting I mean, in fact, that this list would at first glance appear to be compiled by a gaggle of frat boys giggling over their collection of eBay'd NES cartridges.

Australian federal Attorney Generals seeking public feedback on R18+ classification
Australian federal Attorney Generals seeking public feedback on R18+ classification

South Australia's Attorney-General Michael Atkinson has long stood in the way of efforts to gauge public opinion on whether or not Australia should have an R18+ classification for video games, but finally it looks like the federal government has decided to take things into their own hands. Residents of Australia can submit a comment to the Commonwealth government on the topic of the R18+ classification, the first time that public opinion has been solicited directly on this topic.

Conservative WorldNetDaily criticizes gay Dragon Age sex scene

While the escapades of Zevran and Leliana in BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins have been featured positively in a lot of gay media, it was presumably only a matter of time before their inclusion would show up in negative depictions as well. WorldNetDaily, a popular conservative news site ran an article last week with the ridiculous headline of "Players have dirty 'gay' sex in hit game".

Frustrations with PSN [UPDATE] There's a fix!
Frustrations with PSN [UPDATE] There's a fix!

For my birthday a couple weeks ago, Adam surprised me with a brand new PlayStation 3. Whilst browsing things on it, I recalled a title I heard about months ago which seemed interesting: Flower, an ambient/atmospheric game available for purchase on the PlayStation Store that has you taking control of the wind, ushering seeds and flower petals around in a beautifully rendered landscape. Having seen videos of the game on YouTube and hearing rave reviews from friends, the game seemed intriguing and I eagerly added cash to my account to buy it. What has happened next has really annoyed the hell out of me.

No u!
No u!

Last week Ars Technica ran an interesting article discussing ways that PC gamers can make their voices heard to game studios when they're upset about decisions those studios have made. I'm not sure why they narrowed in specifically on PC gamers, since I think their advice would work equally well with respect to console releases or even customer/company interactions that have nothing to do with gaming whatsoever. Perhaps it's because the majority of what they touched on was regarding anonymity within internet communities that led them to keep their focus on PC players– I'm not sure.

Gamer to Australia's Atkinson: a challenger appears!
Gamer to Australia's Atkinson: a challenger appears!

A new political party has been formed in Australia with the goal of ousting South Australia Attorney-General Michael Atkinson and finally getting an R18+ classification for video games passed in the country. While this is commonly (and incorrectly) attributed as being a moral judgement on the part of the Australian population, most Australians are for such a classification and Atkinson is the sole opponent in government to getting one implemented.
