GM making the news.

The real danger of animal abuse is not neccessarily the humane arguments, but actual security concerns.  From a Psychological perspective, a person that kills animals outside of socially-approved context, has high probability of developing disorders.

I always thought it was kind of stupid for the government to waste tax dollars on investigating things like THIS, but after one of my university psych classes, I see the reasoning.

Might be a bit late to revive this, but I remember the first Condemned: Criminal Origins pulling some pretty chilling moments- subtle, but effective. Especially on a large screen, played in complete darkness.

Loved the original Condemned game, shame about the sequel!

Yeah, I didn't think "Bloodshot" was horrible, but it definitely lacked the grip of the first one....kind of the same way the second Bioshock didn't do the first one any favors.
