But British censors have banned it, the first time to country has outlawed a video game since its temporary injunction against 1997’s Carmageddon, a game in which players racked up points for driving over pedestrians.Manhunt 2 follows the escape of an amnesiac scientist and a psychotic killer from an asylum, a story which quickly evolves into a killing spree. The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) rejected the game after finding it “constantly encourages visceral killing.”Rockstar responded to game website”We respect those who have different opinions about the horror genre and video games as a whole, but we hope they will also consider the opinions of the adult gamers for whom this product is intended,” they said in a statement.Film censors in Ireland have announced they too will ban the game.The original Manhunt wasn’t too popular either, in the UK or Australia.The game is scheduled for a July 10 release on Nintendo Co.’s Wii and Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 2 consoles.Posted: 2007/06/21 at 6:36 PMWhy is it that we have to make a federal case out of everything? If more parents would just take the time to read the rating on the cover of the video game, like I’m sure many of them do with movies, there wouldn’t even be this problem.Every time censorship in video games comes up I state the same opinion I’ve always had.
There are some things about Stern I like but so much of it makes me sick. I am not a moron because I enjoy Jay Lenos style of comedy infinetly more than Letterman or Conan. I find them absolutely dry and humourless. She’s gonna realize fast how badly this will backfire. I think my family will definitely notice her absence and think. Wow.
I also used to work for a smaller brewery where we did some bottling of bombers on a home made rig. Their sales were poor, probably mostly due to the bottle format, especially considering they were just regular beers and not high alcohol special releases, and the poor sales compounded when they sat on shelves and went stale. They now do most of their packaging in 12oz and 16oz cans.
Re: alt right media finding support in Alberta, I concur. This is perhaps the one thing that concerns me the most about being an Albertan our capacity to be hateful and ignorant with pride. There is obviously a conflict between commercial rights as upheld by the courts and civil rights, as you note.
