Maybe it's being in my 30s now, but even though I absolutely see what you're talking about with the slaves being a glorified collectible, I never felt like that's what they were while I was playing through Freedom Cry.  I have never been so emotionally moved by a game as when the french scuttled the slave ship.  I felt physically ill as I rushed belowdecks trying to free the chained slaves, and then, trying to escape, seeing the slaves still trapped left me feeling desperately helpless, and I even felt a little shell-shocked in the aftermath of that mission.

Yeah, there are plenty of films and literary works that have explored the horrors of the slave trade in far more detail, but, for a game, that scene was a gut-punch like I've never experienced (full disclosure: I never bought a PS3, so I've never played The Last of Us).

I would love to see you do "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins meets metal"

It doesn't get any better than Alice Cooper singing Lady Gaga while Orianthi shreds on guitar.

Obviously, this was made by a kid. Ah the days of using the power button to turn off a computer that WASN'T locked up.

Damn I guess I'm old. One of my computers still does that.

Exceptional, if (hopefully) over-the-top, politically satirical short story here.

Love the info, but hearing "SNES" pronounced like it's a word was really grating.

This is incredibly disturbing. I don't recommend reading this article if you have a soft heart or a weak stomach. Meth is candy corn compared to this shit.

More on the link I posted last night. If we hope to preserve the middle class, destroying corporate personhood may well be the only way to do so. This is a very good movement, and I hope that its momentum can accomplish a major victory.

Off-site secure servers are a wonderful thing unless something goes wrong, because the company hosting your off-site server never treats it like you would.
