Quote of the Day

PETA Germany has issued a statement decrying the ability to kill animals in Battlefield 3, specifying an incident where the player stabs a rat with a combat knife. They mention the "brutalizing" effect this can have on the game's "young male target audience", and note that cruelty to animals has been shown to lead to violence toward people. It seems this ignores that the game itself is centered around violence toward other people. - Blues News

Everyone knows I'm about as pro-animal rights as you can get for a non-vegetarian (quite conundrum, eh?).. but PETA doesn't do itself any favors by being ridiculous.
