LONG BLOG

Before we give the Daily Mail some credit

   0
Now I realize that everyones favourite Nazi Simulator (historically true, look it up) made a small leap recently by actually admitting that GTA IV wasn't violence for points and that the main character was a fleshed out person with motivation ect.

However I was recently pointed this news article here where a mother tries to kepp her children (all four of them) with a Nintendo DS. It slides into the usual "evil games" rubbish without pointing out the obviously poor parenting skills (and child naimg skills, I mean HUNNY? Really?) on display. The person who brought my atention to this article also pointed out somehting interesting. The more keen of eye amongst you will have spotted this whilst reading the article and it comes right at the start:

"When the pale blue, 150 Nintendo finally arrived last November, fresh from Hong Kong (I had bought it on the net), crammed with a 'bundle' of 20 games including Brain Trainer, Fifa 08, and Nintendogs, my children hugged me tightly. "

We are all well aware of what these 20 game "bundles" from Hong Kong are like. So did Englands pillar of moral excellence really support video game piracy?

Not that I have any proof that they did.

Not that lack of proof would ever stop the Mail.

I came to Dtiod
Prior to my settling in to Dtiod I had haunted a small number of forums and found them to be either cliquey, unwelcoming or just a bunch of cocks. I had read the site for some time and enjoyed it's more quirky, down to earth view of video games and so I lurked and eventually plucked up the courage to do a Cblog, post on the forums and even venture into the IRC. It is without a shadow of a doubt the best online community I've ever found.

I can be found most often in the forums, specifically in The Podcastle section of which the awesome Technophile made me King. If you need somethying shooping, give us a shout and I'll be more than happy to do so. :D
