Looks like Farsight has a table of their own up on iOS and Google Play.  It's a Ghostbusters licensed pinball table modified from the old Haunted House table, with added multiball and obstacles.

A trailer for a game called Hatred came out over the weekend that is basically a super violent spree killing/massacre game similar to Postal, a game from the 90's. The game has garnered quite a bit of controversy. I think it looks like a bad game in addition to being in bad taste, at the same time I think it shouldn't necessarily be censored. I just wanted to see what your guys' thoughts were.

Trailer is spoilered for being violent and potentially offensive, as well as being NSFW!

This game and its developers can go fuck themselves. It's just bad taste attention whoring in its worst form and it just gives fuel to all the bible thumpers and conservatives that would love to pass bills restricting content.

But they should have the right to publish their game. I won't be buying it, though. Not even discounted.

Jesus Christ.  I feel sick just having seen that trailer.  I don't even believe it's real.  Seems more like something created by anti-violence/anti video game extremists to help them get their point across.

In better news, GoG has just acquired the rights to a bunch of LucasArts games. 30 total are on the way, including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.

Oh, and Sam and Max Hit the Road.

And X-Wing and Tie Fighter. I have no idea how to play these well without a joystick though. (And believe me, I tried and tried to use keyboard controls with X-Wing in the day. I was able to do Wing Commander with the keyboard, but in X-Wing, I only got a few missions in before it became unplayable.)

YAY! I can play Sam & Max without endangering my 30 year old copy!

The government shouldn't restrict their right to publish it, but if Steam or any other distribution channels decide not to carry it, I'm all for that.  This is exactly what gaming doesn't need right now with all the "GamerGate" nonsense recently.
