Quick hits from the world of gaming
For the week of December 9, 2005
BY AARON SOLOMON

The Pats could clinch the division this Sunday with a win at Buffalo and a Miami loss, and I donít care that itís in the AFC Least. What matters is that they are still the team to beat in the playoffs, even if Mr. Iím-so-freaking-good-and-everybody-loves-me Manning is on his way (probably) to a third straight MVP. This week, cooler heads prevailed in Illinois, some guy apparently has not been reading up on his 360, and the ESRB fights back. Plus, pics of what may be the first good video game movie.

Game over for Illinois ban (from CNN)

Iím so glad this happened, but not, Iím sure, as glad as the thousands of retailers across the Land of Lincoln who can now look forward to corrupting our nationís youths for years to come.

Microsoft sued over alleged Xbox 360 glitch (from MSNBC)

I guess this guy didnít read the billions of articles warning him that this would happen. However, he probably isnít that far off the mark when he connects the faulty machinery to Microsoftís rush to get their product in stores first.

Video game critics take aim at cannibalism (from MSNBC)

When NIMF released their infamous report card last week, they took aim at what they perceived to be a frightening influence on young kids: Cannibalism. In particular, they were talking about the tongue-in-cheek (no pun intended) game Stubbs the Zombie. Well, now over at Wideload theyíve decided to clear up all the confusion and state that Stubbs is not, in fact, a cannibal, but a freakiní zombie!

That same report card flunked the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), who now have turned around and flunked NIMF for deliberately misleading parents. The gloves have come off!

Finally, over at Chud.com, theyíve got some pretty cool photos of the upcoming Silent Hill movie. Yes, itís a video game adaptation, but the guy that framed the most famous Cleavage-turns-into-French Mountains sequence of all time is directing it, and it stars Sean Bean, which is all you need to know, frankly. The pics are cool, but alas, the former Lord of Gondor is nowhere to be seen.
