The Co-op #43: Is The Government’s Research On Violent Media A Waste of Money?

Written by on    

This week on the Co-op we welcome a new addition to our team Jakejames Lugo, also known as Venomous Fatman. On the show we decided to expand on his article “LEGO Games – Why You Should Be Playing Them Right Now” by speaking on some of the upcoming Lego titles and sharing our thoughts on a few of the previous ones.

The discussion then gets more serious as we discuss the controversy over the Dead Island Riptide bust of a decapitated female torso. Were Deep Silver in the wrong for trying to sell this as their main bonus item?

Things then get political as we discuss the Obama administration’s decision to fund research on violent media, which includes video games. Is this research necessary? What are the possible outcomes once the research has been concluded? Leave your comments below.

We then close off the show by speculating on where THQ’s franchises could possibly end up after today’s auction.
