The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Banned In The UK

Posted on Tuesday, June 19 @ 21:44:32 PST by Duke_Ferris
Obviously the big game news today is that Manhunt 2 has been banned by our British friends. I have an uglier word for you: Censorship. Plus, I'll tell you why this might be the stupidest ban ever.

Let's also consider what this means. We're not talking about kids here, because the game will actually be illegal. Fully grown adults will not be able to play Manhunt 2. They can vote, they can join the army and shoot people, they can have a baby, they can buy transvestite midget porn, they can fly a helicopter, they can buy alchohol, they can buy cigarettes, but they cannot buy Manhunt 2. Is the BBFC really saying that this video game is worse for people than cigarettes?

Apparently they are.

And here's the stupid part I promised you - Most of the uproar over Manhunt 2 is because the first Manhunt game was widely blamed by the media for the murder of Stefan Pakeerah. The headline of the Daily Mail was "Murder by Playstation", and the British media became obsessed with the killer's apparent obsession with Manhunt the game.

Of course, the most amazing part of the story didn't make any headlines - The media had it dead wrong. It turns out the killer didn't even have the Manhunt game, the victim did.
