Hatred, Sony, and Free Speech - One More Time, with Feeling

Oh everyone takes turns
Now it's yours to play the part
And they're sitting all around you
Holding copies of your chart
And the misery in their eyes
Is synchronized and reflected into yours

Hello again, old friend. No, you're not seeing a ghost. I'm not quite yet dead. I know I said that Blogzilla 1985 would no longer be updated, and you can call me a liar for writing this post.

It's okay, I've been called worse.

I honestly want to stay retired. What have I done in the almost three months since I posted my last article? Nothing worth mentioning, although I do have some exciting news to share with you all very soon.

But for now, let's talk about what brought me back to the world of opinionated writing. Today I want to talk about the big FU - freedom undying. That was the most clever thing I could come up with for the two letters. Go easy on me, I haven't done this in months.

It's been a busy couple of weeks for the word freedom. The world is forever struggling with the term and how to apply it to us lowly humans, but we've built a pretty good society based on everything it provides us. Recently a lot of commotion has been made about our freedom of speech and our right to live without censorship, and that's the exact thing I want to touch upon right now.

The game Hatred has created quite a buzz in the inner circles of the industry since the first blood soaked trailer emerged online. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, enjoy it here in all of it's gratuitous glory -

This is the game that has set the internet on fire with talk of censorship and big brother deciding what we can and cannot access, especially in light of the game being taken off of Steam's Greenlight program despite an overwhelming positive response. A quick look on the Greenlight page, as well as Destructive Creations pleasant site, reveals that the game has been reinstated.

Happy Holidays from Blogzilla 1985

We're wishing you and yours a happy holiday during these turbulent times in our great country.

Remember the real reason for the season - peance on Earth and good will to men. And women. And little fuzzy animals.

And Hulk Hogan.

Just be good to each other out there. It's the only time of the year where we forget our own selfish nature and do for others selflessly.

Treasure what you have, not what you're getting.

Happy holidays to you all!
