I was just over at SheSpeaks.com (trying to sign up for a product test) when I stumbled onto their blog post about this video game that even I think is rather disgusting (coming from me that means a lot).

Mind you, I am not one for censorship, but this game pushes the envelope (even my envelope and hopefully yours too). And I have to say I almost agree with it being pulled from online stores like Amazon and eBay.

The game is called Rapelay and I can only hope it has a rating of MATURE and all places selling it are checking Ids before handing it over to anyone. (Shame you can’t do a psych evaluation too as this game is harsh and some sick minds thrive on this shit.)

If you thought Grand Theft Auto and the like were bad influences on your kids they have nothing on this game where you stalk, assault and rape mothers and their daughters.

People are trying to get this horrid game banned. But I am not so sure a ban is really what should be done. Historically banned games, videos, and music always seem to sell more after they have been banned. What needs to be done is to educate parents about these things, encourage them to watch what their kids are playing and get those parents to stop the game from ever entering their kids lives, because if people want this game they will get it ban or no ban.

This is the type of video game that you would expect to find in a Hentai shop or an adult bookstore along with all the other sex games, not on the shelves of your local Walmart or even the virtual shelves of Amazon or eBay.

Mario KartMario Kart is one heck of hard game to find. I had to borrow a friend’s to see if I like it before resorting to ordering it online. I guess I might have to buy it, as it is pretty fun. Although I do suck at it guess I’ll get better with practice. I ran a few races then tried my hand at an online game or two. There’s nothing like getting your ass beat by people across North America (I chose regional because I did not want to be a world class loser just yet).

My ride home on Friday night was a little like real life Mario Kart. I’m driving along minding my own business when this jackass decides he has to come over in my lane. I lay on my horn and he keeps coming over. I don’t think he ever looked over or even used his side mirror at all. Finally, just before he hit me and/or forced me into the cement median he pulled back into his lane and looked at me like I’m to blame that he can’t drive. Sometimes I really can’t stand people.

It is summertime, well not officially yet. That means it is time to get away from the TV, computer, xbox or wii and get out into the great outdoors and enjoy yourself. You don’t have to do anything too strenuous. There is plenty to do without breaking the bank you’re a sweat. You could go bird watching. All you need is a book, a pair of binoculars, good walking shoes and some time.

On the warm evenings you could check out the night sky with those very same binoculars or step it up a notch with a telescope and see that UFO zooming by. (For the techno-geek that has to have his PC along you can still bring it and use the night sky software or bird guide of your choice on your computer or PDA.) If your out at night you might want to pick up a night vision scope to see what is out in the woods with you. Any good bigfoot hunter worth his weight would not be caught without one.

This week’s I Want It Wednesday post is pretty simple. As you can see by my earlier posts I obviously have a Wii. It took me a while and at first I wasn’t sure I was falling for all the hype. Then my nieces got one and I went over to play. Big mistake.

First because the hooked me on Guitar Hero another bit of popular culture I wasn’t going to get sucked into. Well within a week of playing it I had Guitar Hero III for my PS2 and had spent the weekend doing nothing but playing the game. Then the following week I wound up buying the other three games too!

Soon after I jumped on the Guitar Hero bandwagon I decided I would hitch my wagon to the Wii as well. But no Guitar Hero for the Wii has come into play just yet.

This month Rock Band comes out for the Wii and you guessed it, I want it.

Wii is a Waster

Okay, not the Wii itself rather the Wii points cards. These are going to be an environmental disaster. The small plastic credit card sized card comes in a 5×7 inch plastic clamshell package. When global warming takes its toll we can all turn to Nintendo and point fingers. Why aren’t these points cards printed on […]

Wild Party With The Kids

 Beer and cigarettes, not your usual treats for kids is it? When my nieces were little and my mom would be watching them they would stop by this little local general store and buy just that, beer and cigarettes. Okay, so it was root beer and candy sticks (called candy cigarettes back in my day). […]
