Ban this Sick Filth : - Osmos

    Ban This Sick Filth
    Here we stand again, the world looking on in horror as an extinction causing haemorrhagic pandemic guaranteed to destroy civilisation as we know it.
    Clearly this distraction causing sleight of hand allows the REAL dangers to sip past the censors unheeded! And one such CLEAR danger is Osmos, by Hemisphere games.

    Winning much admiration for its minimalist, meditative gameplay you are represented in the gaming world as a “mote” who is tasked with traversing the game world, eating up smaller “motes” in order to grow in size, the challenge being to preserve your own mass as every time you expend energy to move, you shrink in size.

    Can you believe it.
    In a world where morbid obesity is a growing problem, indeed a quarter of men in the UK are classified as morbidly obese, a game that actively encourages you to get as big as possible is taking a reprehensible moral stance on this issue!
    And it can hardly be co-incidence that after the release of this “game” figures showed a fall in the number of Britons who regularly partake in regular exercise.
    With each morbidly obese person costing the NHS up to £80 000 a year, this ticking economic time bomb simply cannot be sustained.

    However, even worse than encouraging a nation of overweight salad dodgers to sit around eating themselves into an early grave, this game encourages even further acts of moral depravity.
    You see, it is only by absorbing smaller motes that you can grow. And with endemic bullying a significant issue with many young people how Hemisphere games really thought they could get away with this is beyond me!
    With 118% of children now being bullied through social media sites such as myspace and hotasians the release of a game that actively encourages you to victimise those smaller than yourself can only be described as morally blinkered, especially when, by encouraging morbid obesity you will find far more people are smaller than you and whom you could then bully!
    Now have I played this cesspit of filth and depravity, no, clearly not, I would rather not risk my health, svelt figure or knock down the moral pedestal from which I dispense judgement. But in the finest traditions of moral crusaders everywhere, I don’t actually have to know what I am talking about, before I cast it into the fires of moral righteousness!
    If you have been affected by any of the issues raised in this weeks “Ban this sick filth” there are plenty of places to find help and assistance

      I always use the "preview" function before submitting, and the strike reate of screenshot size is about 50% (I.e, half the time the actual article shows them at the correct size). This tiime I fucked up on the font size so thats my bad!
      All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors are intentionally left in as an excercise for the reader!

      a trick for the images if you post them as attachments is that the size they show in the thread box is the size they will be on the actual page, or at least that is how it has worked out for me, but I know images resize on mobile devices so different screen sizes may have an effect on that.

    Reality sucks and we all know it.
    Lets face it, if reality was actually even half decent, we wouldn’t spend time doing jobs we hate in order to spend the rest of our time off our tits on illicit narcotics.
    And be honest, if you were even moderately happy with reality, you wouldn’t be attempting to escape it completely by pretending to be something you’re not, doing things you couldn’t possibly do; in the realm of video games.
    Well luckily for us, Oculus Rift is here...

    Well it's a bright sunny day here in merry old England, the sun is shining, birds are frolicking in the shrubbery whilst butterflies flit from tree to tree. So what better time to sit indoors in a dimly lit room and answer the gaming queries of the desperate public!

    Yes, I know, it's been an age, and pretty much the only reason you lot still even visit the website is to read the insightful musings of the great JR. However I have managed to fight off the rampant depression caused by the bit of a shit year I am having to grant the benefits of my benevolent wisdom to the less fortunate.

    Gaming has a problem.

    And it’s a problem that everyone is aware of.

    It’s a problem of inclusivity. And it’s so blatant a problem that even in these days of intersectionality, insisting that everyone is being excluded (despite a significant number of games actually allowing you to create your own character) there is one group who have consistently been ignored since the release of Planescape Torment.

    And that is the pretentious.

    Ask JR at Christmas

    Well it’s that time of the year where people inexplicable feel the need to spend time with people they spend the rest of the year trying to avoid, and whilst most will be struggling sneak money from the bank in Monopoly, or struggling not to laugh at Grannies flatulence, lets not forget that others are still struggling with their gaming conundrums.......
