"kill kill kill, die fuckers, praise the lord" and other things

Left Behind game…. kill kill kill, die fuckers, praise the lord: for ages 6 and above | David Galbraith.org

If you replace the word Christian for Muslim in the description of the left behind game posted on BoinBoing it sounds exactly like a game about 911 where you play the role of the terrorists

Forget Monopoly, this is where it’s at!

Patriot Act: The Home Version | graphix4change.com

PATRIOT ACT: The Home Version, is a game inspired by the historic abuse of governmental powers of the same name. Many of the hypothetical situations in the game are based on real-life events. Either as a game to be played or as a statement to be read, Patriot Act: The Home Version educates the user to the current erosion of our civil rights by the government while claiming to be protecting our freedoms. John Ashcroft may no longer be Attorney General, but his legacy lives on in the anti-freedom legislation that this game is a tribute to.

Halo 2 will be Vista only

Word trickles down that Halo 2 for PC will only run on Windows Vista, whenever that finally ships.

Not being interested in either owning a PC or playing Halo 2, I don’t care much but I believe that it’s not very nice of the Bungie folks to effectively shut out anyone who hasn’t paid the hundreds of dollars it will take to both upgrade the operating system and the hardware to enable an enjoyable experience.

On a side note, Halo 2 for Mac is mentioned at the bottom, mainly saying that “it’s not out of the question, but it’s not definitely happening either.”

Diablo III?

Opposable Thumbs, an Ars Technica journal, has posted some information that might indicate that a third installment of the massively popular Diablo game series.

I am a huge fan of Diablo II and still play it every now and then. The great thing about it is, aside from the wonderful gameplay, that I could play it on both my ODPC and my Mac without having to go out and buy the game again. I really liked that and hope that if they do ship a third installment, it’ll be a hybrid disc, too.

Anyway, back to the story about the (possible) Diablo III:

Gamespot just pointed out that Blizzard is hiring an art director and leads to help “the team behind Diablo I and II” with “an unannounced PC project”. Can ya be a little more obvious, please? This may very well be something totally different for all I know, but it seems like they wouldn’t have bothered mentioning the team’s history on the first two games if the third weren’t the mysterious game in question. Coupled with the fact that Diablo III rumors have been swirling about for months now, it seems like we’re edging closer to an official announcement.

Anxiously waiting. :D

Evidence of Diablo III continues to mount
