For everyone dissing 'Fat Batman', he's from 'Dark Knight Returns', possibly the greatest batman story ever!

Ever wondered if there is enough blood, sex and magic in your video games?
I decided to look in to alternative sources of game information. Specifically Censor reports and Christian websites.
It's an old cliché that American censors are more hung up on sex, while the Brits are more bothered about violence; a comparison of the reports often backs this up. Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 feels the wrath of the BBFC for its "moderate violence" and the report goes into detail about heavy interrogation scenes involving hypodermic needles and knives. The ESRB makes no mention of this at all, but does choose to mention the presence of women in cleavage-revealing outfits.
What makes the British censor reports worth reading are their bizarrely detailed accounts of violence. The above extract from Bayonetta could have simply said "there was a lot of bloody violence," but instead goes into gruesome detail about exactly what horrific delights that gore aficionados can expect. There almost seems to be an air of the critic in this one, expressing disappointment at the lack of realism. Add to this the clinical, bureaucratic tone that seems totally at odds with the subject matter and they often end up reading like the diary of a psychopathic English civil servant.
Guess this explains why everyone's favourite creepy virtual boy wasn't at E3.
Speaking to Australian TV Microsoft's Aaron Greenburg said: "The Milo Project is something that Lionhead Studios in their labs had developed. Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that ... [Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it's not a game that we're planning to bring to market."
Of course people will be scared to express disappointment at this for fear of bombardment with pedophile jokes
Not a great daily sale, although I have a lot of good memories of the original Colonization. The Civ IV version might be worth 7€?
