The Fastest Way To Get Shot Is To Fail To Clean Your Weapon

Interesting story today in regards to the Black Ops 2 fiasco in France. How can a publisher expect to not get pummeled over something like this? Gameblog.fr was only doing its job, reporting news that it had picked up from a legit source, and Activision is in its right to "ask" its contacts to temporarily remove it as it probably messes up PR plans. Once it's out there, though, it's weak sauce to threaten people and boycott them for doing what they are supposed to do.

Not sure which movie we're going to go see today. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance isn't exactly on top of our list, so maybe we'll grab an older one that slipped through the cracks. But next week, Act of Valor!
