For some reason Microsoft conducted a survey in Canada about how people there play video games. They asked whether people play video games at work (30%), in the bedroom (27%), in public (19%), and in the bathroom (7%). They also asked whether those in the survey have ever played in the nude, and 17% of guys and 9% of women had. Nude gaming was especially popular in the 18 to 34 group. Joysticks must bring them joy.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Grand Theft Auto IV

Earlier we posted a poll about the hooker screwing and killing in Grand Theft Auto IV. I wasn’t entirely sure how I felt about this game, so I haven’t voted yet, and instead asked the guys on my IM why I shouldn’t be horribly offended by them having virtual sex for money with the woman to the left, and then blasting her in the head with a semi-automatic.

Today In Terribleness: Polygamists, Evil Dads, And Girl Hating Gamers

  • More than half of the teen girls taken from the polygamist compound in Texas earlier this month have children or are pregnant. A total of 463 children were taken into custody by Child Protective Services. [CNN]

And she said yes! Aw, they go together like Yoshi and Birdo. [Gimundo] Keep reading »
