US senator definitively claims games are worse than guns

Many politicians will heavily imply that videogames are far more lethal than weapons designed to be lethal , but U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander has taken the idiot ball and ran for the hills with it clasped in his gnarled talons. He straight up said that games pose a greater threat than any firearm.  “I think videogames [sic] is a bigger problem than guns, because videogames affects [sic] people,” he said.

EA joins HRC coalition to repeal Defense of Marriage Act

Electronic Arts has thrown its lot in with the Human Rights Campaign , a coalition of business allied to help repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. The act, for those not in the know, is bigotry dressed in the coward’s garb of traditionalism, seeking as it does to stifle the legality of same-sex marriage for no actual good reason.  The publisher joins the ranks of such companies as eBay, Thomas Reuters, and Marriot, as well as many other Fortune 500 companies that are championing their own counter to DOMA, the Respect for Marriage Act.

The Taliban is not exactly known for saying things Western gamers might nod their head in agreement with, but a fair few are siding with the Islamic fundamentalist movement against Britain’s own Prince Harry. The Prince recently compared his service in  Afghanistan to a videogame — something the Taliban claims is evidence of mental illness.  Harry said in a recent interview that using an Apache attack helicopter’s weapons systems were a “joy” because he loves playing Xbox and PlayStation games. The rather tasteless comment was followed with, “…  so with my thumbs I like to think I’m probably quite useful — if you ask the guys I thrash them at FIFA the whole time.” It’s a weird analogy when you consider that in real-life war, you don’t have to pay Electronic Arts money to obtain your guns.  The Taliban, probably upset at being the CPU-controlled opponents in this particularly analogy, expressed its anger at the comments, and took a potshot at Air Corps captain’s mental health by way of revenge.  “There are 49 countries with their powerful military failing in the fight against the mujahideen, and now this prince comes and compares this war with his games, PlayStation or whatever he calls it,” stated a Taliban rep
