Warning Congressmen are crazy!
Congressman Joe Baca of California is at it again. He wants to have warning stickers placed on all games that rated above “E 10+” This includes games like Final Fantasy, The Sims and Guitar Hero. Come on Joe… You really think these types of game need a warning label that reads,
“WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior,” to “WARNING: Exposure to violent video games has been linked to aggressive behavior.”
I am a little sick and tried of politicians that are in their 60’s trying to tell me that some video games will make you go crazy and shoot up a store. This is ridiculous and honestly I am done with people who want to add these labels. I surely hope any of the Michigan reps support this bill because they will lose my vote.

And the winner is… The Batmobile
Here is a video of 2 Batmobiles racing. 1 is from the 60’s TV show and the other is from Burton’s movie from 1989. Jump to around 7:45 for the start of the race and make sure you stick around for the bonus at the 9:00 mark. The tumbler would beat them both in my opinion.
I love Skyrim!
Here is a photo from a guy who built a real life size suit of Daedric Armor. Holy cow is it bad ass! This would be a great addition for the man cave. Although I don’t think my wife will agree with that purchase as I believe I have logged over 138 hours in game thus far. Guess I need to buy her a really expensive gift soon!
