TSG Rivalries: Honorable Mention

Two members specifically Twon da don & chubbzz0727 believe the rivalry is real, where as Jesmonkey69 says it is not & that they are brought down hard upon because of their boisterous actions bringing so much spotlight on themselves, that everyone is looking for reasons for them to be in trouble & thus get caught more.
Here is what one member of the Killuminati, Chubbzz0727 had to say:

As the TSG Madden 25 Franchise came to another great finish, and with no NCAA 15 this year, the members of TSG were still looking to compete and found a great opportunity in FIFA14 to do so. First let me say that I am amazed at how good the game is, I had no idea, and with this Summer being a World Cup Year, it just gave me a all new prospective for soccer as a whole. The EA Access app dropping giving all users availability to download and play FIFA was perfect for those to get a chance to play such a GREAT sports title.

U.S. Senator: Video Games Gave Sandy Hook Shooter ‘A False Sense Of Courage’ (Via Kotaku)

Let the scapegoating continue.  Adam Lanza, the person who shot and killed 26 people at Sandy Hook elementaryin Connecticut last month, reportedly played Call of Duty, among other games. So for quite a while now, pundits and politicians have been drawing links between his heinous actions and the video games he played.

Most recently we have Senator Chris Murphy, a newly-elected Democrat in CT, who spoke yesterday during a press conference to introduce a bill on assault weapons.

“I think there’s a question as to whether he would’ve even driven in his mother’s car in the first place if he didn’t have access to a weapon that he saw in video games that gave him a false sense of courage about what he could do that day,” the senator said.

This is probably a good time to remind the world that there is no scientific evidence linking violent video games and violent behavior.

With Recent Rash Of Gun Violence, Videos Games Have Been Drawn Into The Debate

State Sen. Leland Yee’s ban on sales of violent games to minors was tossed by the high court.

 

When the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2011 that there was no proof that violent video games caused minors to act violently, the video game industry believed an age-old debate was finally over. But in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook killings, the video industry is once again under scrutiny. This time, President Obama’s gun control initiative includes funding a new, $10 million study on violence in entertainment, including video games.

And that’s not all. Since the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, lawmakers in Missouri and Utah have introduced bills that would levy a tax on violent video game sales and make it a crime to sell certain games to minors.

State Sen. Leland Yee, who authored the 2005 California bill to ban sales of ultra-violent video games only to have the Supreme Court rule it unconstitutional, still vehemently believes the issue is a “public health matter.”

“Gamers have got to just quiet down,” Yee, D-San Francisco, said in an interview Tuesday. “Gamers have no credibility in this argument. This is all about their lust for violence and the industry’s lust for money. This is a billion-dollar industry. This is about their self-interest.”

Industry scapegoated?

While those kinds of sentiments anger many game players, who believe their favorite pastime is once again being made a scapegoat for violent behavior, the industry may only have itself to blame for attracting critics. After all, some of the most profitable games in the $7 billion industry – the ones that developers most heavily promote and advertise – are violent first-person shooter/slasher games like “Call of Duty: Black Ops II” and “Assassin’s Creed III.”

“It’s not all about shooting people in the head and guts everywhere, but that’s what the public perception is, and probably rightfully so,” said Kris Graft, editor-in-chief of the San Francisco-based site Gamasutra, which along with its print magazine sibling, Game Developer, covers the video game industry. “There is plenty of diversity in video games, but I don’t think it’s being highlighted enough.”

Indeed, a list of last year’s top 10 best-selling games, according to the research firm NPD Group, shows an equal mix of first-person shooters – which traditionally cater to the industry’s most loyal audience of hard-core gamers – and the sports and dance games that can’t be considered violent.

The best-selling game was the latest installment of the war simulation “Call of Duty” franchise from Activision of Santa Monica. In third place was “Halo 3,” from a Microsoft subsidiary, 343 Industries of Kirkland, Wash., and in fourth place was “Assassin’s Creed III” from France-based Ubisoft Entertainment, which has its North American headquarters in San Francisco.

But No. 2 was the long-successful football game franchise “Madden NFL 13,” from Redwood City’s Electronic Arts, while Ubisoft’s “Just Dance 4” finished in the fifth spot. The top 10 also included the basketball game “NBA 2K13” from Novato’s 2K Sports. Continue reading With Recent Rash Of Gun Violence, Videos Games Have Been Drawn Into The Debate
