Leeland Yee SCOTUS Photo Shoot

November 2, 2010 -

Work it, Senator! California State Senator Leland Yee says some stuff on the steps of the Supreme Court. I do not know what he is saying exactly but I imagine it's something along the lines of "video games train our children to commit acts of violence and cannibalism!" Anyway, politicians and press conferences go together like ants and picnics.. or war and famine. Caption the pictures in the comments for fun (thanks to the ECA's Hal Halpin for passing these along):

Is it just me, or does Leland Yee bear a striking resemblance to the bad guy in the recent Karate Kid remake?

Re: Leeland Yee SCOTUS Photo Shoot

Meh lack of a good edu system makes people more violent and cannibalistic.......


I have a dream, break the chains of copy right oppression! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/cigital-disobedience/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Did somebody say caption contest?

Re: Leeland Yee SCOTUS Photo Shoot

"You want to make sure video games are appropriate for your children?  Well, of course you do!  You're an awesome parent, after all!  Unfortunately, the only possible way to evaluate the content of these games is to play them yourselves for at least 800 hours.  Oh, and you better be an expert game player too because these suckers are hard!

What?  What's that you say?  You suck at games and don't have that much spare time?  Well friends, that's why I've written a law that does the work for you!  That's right, you won't have to worry about your kids playing something I object to, I mean, something you find objectionable because they won't even be able to buy them!  In fact, you can just stop paying attention to what your kids are playing, safe in the knowledge that the gov't knows what's best for your kids."

or

"Violent games harm your children.  It's true.  There are studies, thousands of them that conclusively prove it!  So, I've written a law that prevents children from buying these games because as we all know, if kids can't buy a game, they sure as hell can't play it!

Now, don't get me wrong, if you're okay with your kids playing these harmful games, you can buy them yourselves.  No siree bob, I have no problem with parents exercising their rights to facilitate their children with something that's proven to be detrimental to their psychological well being."

Mattsworknamealso, in MGR, on higher levels, button mashing will get you reckt, you have to master parry to even have a prayer05/24/2015 - 8:52pm
MattsworknameI kinda would like a bit more variety in the combat, as it feels a bit to stiff and slow for me. Especailly after other games ive played05/24/2015 - 8:39pm
Goth_SkunkThere's... no button mashing in DA:I. However, neither is DA:I's combat perfect. I, for one, detest the active talent max limit of 8.05/24/2015 - 8:21pm
MattsworknameDa I combat is fun, a bit stiff but fun, but I still say the best pure combat engine in any game was Metal gear rising.05/24/2015 - 7:15pm
ZippyDSMleeWhen DA gets a control system like DA:O I'll brother to want to paly it, I frown on button mashing RPGs not made by bethseda...05/24/2015 - 5:59pm

Goth_SkunkThe game is 75% sidequests, 25% story. And most of those sidequests are only vaguely related to the main story at all, having very little consequence to the plot at large.05/24/2015 - 1:12pm
Goth_SkunkI'm such a huge BioWare fan that I played through my first playthrough of DA:I without complaint, but on my second time through I certainly took notice of just how much side-quest material there was. It's probably my greatest criticism of the game.05/24/2015 - 1:10pm
ZippyDSMleeI need one of my 70 games to play....mmmmmmmm05/24/2015 - 9:57am

MattsworknameIn still trying ot beat that game the first time. Freaking game has so much side questing05/23/2015 - 7:34pm
Goth_SkunkPlaying a third and probably final playthrough of Dragon Age: Inquisition. Once that's done, I'll move on to AC: Unity, most likely, then get caught up on A-list games I have yet to play, like Murdered: Soul Suspect and Shadows of Mordor.05/23/2015 - 6:33pm
MattsworknameIf you own a vita and like monster hunter, but dont like the bs filler that goes with it. Try tokiden kiwmai05/23/2015 - 6:11pm
Matthew Wilsonaparently their servers got crushed, but I dont see the game selling well. Nintendo fans tend not to be fans of competitive fps05/23/2015 - 5:48pm
