Senator Dianne Feinstein Says Violent Video Games are a Negative Influence

Senator Dianne Feinstein Says Violent Video Games are a Negative Influence

The proclaimed link between violent video games and real-life crimes has been the subject of an ongoing debate for quite some time. California Senator Dianne Feinstein is the most recent politician to step up to the podium on the matter, saying that Congress may have to step in and make a change in the video games industry. This weekend she stated that games have "a very negative role for young people, and the industry ought to take note of that." She then went on to say:

"If Sandy Hook doesn’t do it, if the knowledge of these video games this young man played doesn’t, then maybe we have to proceed, but that is in the future.

She isn’t the only one to comment on this "link." She is not the first and she will not be the last. Will the video games industry ever be forced into being less violent? What are your thoughts on the matter?

The Last Guardian Will NOT Appear at #E32015 and Here's the Reason Why...

Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
