Video Games and Violence: John Stossel vs. Franklin Graham

     Billy Graham's son, Franklin Graham, went on tv to talk about how horrible video games are for society, and in a wonderful turn of events, Fox Business's John Stossel makes a couple amazing replies.  It's not often that I agree with Mr. Stossel, but thank you sir, as this was an informed respose to Graham's ridiculous ideas.
     Once again- Blogger will NOT allow me to embed the video, so here is the link:

I'm Ron Burgundy?

     Has anyone asked Graham if he'd appreciate the Bible being taxed, because of all the violence it has caused?  Not only is the Holy Writ loaded with violence, it has been the source and inspiration of violence on the largest scales possible. 

     I absolutely love how Stossel refers to the same argument made about comics, specifically against Superman in the 1950's.  Seriously, Superman- the most moral, upstanding American ideal- was cited as causing violence.  Absurd.

Microsoft drops Xbox One DRM and Internet restrictions


No matter how hard they tried to explain their intentions, Microsoft just couldn't seem to convince gamers that despite the Xbox One’s restrictions, the benefits would outweigh the costs. So, in what will surely be considered as one of the greatest turnabouts in video game history, Microsoft has officially announced that they are reversing their DRM and Internet connection policies for the Xbox One. In short, the new Xbox One will be just like your Xbox 360.

A New Site. A New Start.

     Welcome.

     Sony's E3 presentation ended a little while ago and they knocked it out of the park.  There will be tons of material written on it- but for tonight- just, an introduction to this site.  I began this site primarily for gamers, but hope to include comics, movies, and television fairly quickly.
     This is just a small start.
     There will be much more to come.
