Manhunt gets more free publicity

Manhunt is on at least two front pages today and it is guilty of murder. Apparently. As if it wasn't not bad enough that it got itself banned from New Zealand it's now gone and committed a murder in this country. Well according to the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror anyway.

Yes it that's old chestnut again - video games make you kill people. Daft fsckers.

Mind you its such an important issue to the Mirror that they almost made it the same size as their Fantasy Football ad. And the Daily Mail's other main story today? They have 2(!) pages dedicated to animals on the Underground. So that makes New Links like the Daily Mail but 5 months faster and without the racialism. Yay!

I'll have to wait till I get home for teh rapper vid - haven't got sound here.

Having now played Ninja Gaiden and got a tutorial on throwing knives like a ninja tonight I will be mostly flipping out.

As for gun toting mutants - working in South Shields you probably see loads of tehm every day!

Hey this working instead of posting is a bit shite though isn't it? Blame Dogs for making me feel guilty yesterday. Or something.

After playing Spider-Man 2 for about 2 weeks now, I have no urge to jump off buildings and swing around Cardiff on bits of rope.
Well maybe just a little bit...

You know the Spiderman film that came out late 70s/early 80s? When me and my mates went to see that we climbed everything (billboards / telephone boxes / up the bus stairs) on the way home.

Hmm I'm off to help get Manhunt banned! ;)
