I cannot believe this, but they are making the Bioshock movie after the hit game of the same name. It has the potential to either be very bad or very good. I wonder what will it be? It is directed by the same director who made "Pirates of the Caribbean" so there may be hope.

I highly recommend reading the synopsis. It is the synopsis of the actual game, however the premise is what originally drew me to the game and presents some issues not often presented in the first-person shooter genre.

This is a really good fan version of what it would be like.

Fire away!

German retailer bans violent games after shootings

Berlin - German retailer Kaufhof will no longer sell violent video games and films, after a teenager - who was an avid gamer - shot dead 15 people before killing himself last week, the firm said Wednesday.

I'm sorry, but when a kid does not distinguish the line between reality and fantasy he should be under supervision and receive medical help from psychiatrists. Also, his father trained on a shooting range and had some influence. You don't know how to handle a gun after playing "Crysis" or shoot a bow after playing a ranger on "Guild Wars". You have to go and train in real life with real people.

Violent games are not for everyone and the warning labels are there for a reason. A kid's mental state is not the responsibility of the manufacturers of said games. Partial responsibility is also with the retailers for making sure they do not sell adult games to kids.  Not to mention the parents, who do have to at least try to teach kids how to distinguish reality from fantasy.

Is this not amazing? The graphics, the music and the story. I am most excited about this.

I especially love the music in this trailer, so dramatic and yet very meaningful.
