Thanks to Blue's News for covering the latest developments in a UK videogame violence story
, in which the Rockstar North-created game Manhunt
was very allegedly implicated in "a grisly murder"
- it's revealed: "The game was present in the victim's home, not the killer's... This may present a problem for those looking to turn this case to their own ends."
Nonetheless, previously mentioned
attorney Jack Thompson is jumping straight on the case
, even from an continent away, according to GameDaily, as he rages: "We are going to destroy Rockstar, you can count on that... [ESA head] Doug Lowenstein makes Saddam Hussein look like a post-reformed Pinocchio."
Finally, Gamesindustry.biz injects a thoughtful note
into the mayhem, arguing: "Rockstar do not emerge from this affair smelling of roses... game makers could help the case a lot by trying to push the boundaries in terms of gameplay, rather than gore."
