Trick Or Treat - how far can this go before it kills us

This is A Hot Mess that could actually be a reality if we're not careful. game designers are becoming the social architects of our new generations thoughts; and are pressing the boundaries of acceptance of violence and mayhem. this is supposed to be a snarky look at the problems we are creating for our future. unfortunately it seems to mirror a real game that will be released in a couple days.

Pay attention and you'll recognize Bobbie Battista formerly of CNN.
wellllll you gotta get ya bread where you can these days in media;
and she looks great. good to see you working Bobbi.

when will we stop feeding the monster that wants to eat us ?

Hot New Video Game Consists Solely Of Shooting People Point-Blank In The Face

Modern Warfare 2, through the eyes of controversy
October 29, 3:48 AM - Robert Workman

Controversy Abounds - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is set to hit shelves in less than two weeks’ time, and it’s expected to be a million-plus seller within the first few hours alone. Intense war situations, unbelievable graphics, unparalleled gameplay and multiplayer potential await in this much-anticipated game. However, it isn’t without its fair share of controversy. Many people weren’t willing to accept the over-the-top action by itself, but now a new angle has made the game content even more questionable, at least to some.

Recently, a clip of leaked footage leaked onto YouTube from the game (which has since been removed), showing a sequence where you’re not in control of a hero. WARNING: spoilers ahead.

In this sequence, you control a terrorist, who’s a part of a Russian team that’s invading an airport. As you proceed through the airport, you’re asked to eliminate innocent civilians, before eventually succumbing to a gunshot wound to the head from your own boss.

IMHO, these war games will only produce warriors.  Not Doctors, Not Teachers or Scientists. when will we see those games on the top shelf, instead of these dehumanizing mental twisters ?

An Aside From the Violence to the Entrecard Violation - 
this is day two with a violation banner. they notified me at 11:27 AM 10/29/09 :

Your account 'BadGalSays' on has been warned. The administrator provided the following message:

Your site has auto playing audio. This is against Entrecard's TOS. Please remove this within 72 hours to avoid being deleted from Entrecard.

Please contact if you have any questions regarding this warning.

PLEASE NOTE: You are expected to resolve this issue promptly. Failure to do so will result in the removal of your Entrecard account.

I Replied by email immediately at 1:15pm after I had complied; yes, just that easy and fast.

Okies, I got your message and at 1:00pm I changed the video and the entire post. Instantly.
then I went to my dashboard and notified them that I had done so, and that they could remove
the violations ribbon from my dashboard.

Okay it's now 10/30/09 - 01:00 am - this is my third response to let them know I've complied.
Their ribbon is still there on the dashboard and very clearly they are ignoring my messages.

this is my latest response to them :

wowwww..... do you guys read your mail ?
I have two new posts since that warning was posted.
it's amazing to see how little you pay attention to
your own box for responses.

fyi - still no music on my site, but loads of fun !
DROP By and See,

Happy Halloween Entrecard

That photo of that kid with a gun to his mouth is disturbing but true.

RE Ausetkmt said...

@Smart Stylist, yes it certainly gets the point home in a hurry.

on my main blog today I wrote about a rapper with a similar problem - shooting his mouth off about dying, when he's not willing to -go check it out here. it's disturbing in the worst way.
