Now this is interesting. Take-Two, the house of Grand Theft Auto as well as the short-lived and highly controversial stealth horror series Manhunt has filed a dispute over the domain name valiant-ent.tv.
The domain was used as a fake snuff site to promote the Manhunt series. Since the series has been dead for some time, a fan decided to take the domain and use it as a petition to get Manhunt 3. Now, Take-Two wants it back.
Remember the shitstorm Microsoft stirred up when they unveiled the Xbox One, its required Internet connection, and those hugely restrictive DRM policies that would’ve kept us from being able to freely trade in and loan our games? Had Sony not confirmed that none of that anti-consumer garbage would be making its way to the PlayStation 4, Microsoft wouldn’t have been forced to pull a Xbox One-80 and remedy many of the more serious issues that plagued the console.
Obviously, it was never all bad. There are plenty reasons to be excited about the online functionality of the Xbox One, but in no way is any of that worth losing our right to do what we want with games we spend $60 on. Apparently, not everyone agrees with that, as thousands of fans have come together to petition Microsoft to bring back those restrictive policies.
Seriously. More after the jump.
While FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead continues to be a #1 here in the states, not every fan that’s been dying to see it is getting the chance. Especially in Australia. It seems like an initial wide release for the film has been altered into a limited release in four theaters across the country – and one of those is for only one showing.
We’ve gotten a few emails about this, so we figured we’d spread the word and point you to a couple of petition sites at Change.org and Facebook.
While I’m not sure about the hows and whys around the release plan, I would encourage anyone who clicks on those links to write something to be respectful. I’ve seen a lot of simplistic, angry and erroneous thinking on them – it’s important to realize that people listen more when you intelligently and respectfully plead your case. One way to not get your way is to threaten to steal the movie. Be more original!

Now this is a petition I can get behind. After realizing D.C. Douglas, better known to geeks around the world as the voice of Albert Wesker in Resident Evil and Legion in Mass Effect 2 and 3, would not be appearing in the upcoming Resident Evil 6, Nathan Narain decided he needed to get his dose of Douglas in another way. That’s where AMC’s insanely popular The Walking Dead comes in, because D.C. Douglas + zombies = magic, so why not get him a role on the show? We might recognize him for his work in video games, but Douglas also has two decades of acting in various films and television series under his belt. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, the petition is only a little over 500 signatures strong, but we can change that. Come on, people. Show your love for democracy, your love for America, by signing this petition because together we can make the world a better place. Or at the very least we can make the already excellent The Walking Dead just a wee bit better.
I know this isn’t video game or horror related, but it’s something I think a lot of people on here would agree with and like to see. A petition has surfaced online with the sole purpose of getting Body Modification added to Equal Opportunity Employment rights. I 100 percent support this being someone with many extra holes in his head, and with many friends and family who are tattooed, pierced, etc. The main purpose of this is to prove that your job qualifications do not reflect the way you look. Just because you chose to tattoo yourself up, or put some extra holes in your face doesn’t mean you can’t do your job and do it well.
I’ve been in that situation before. Back in high school I had green hair, and piercings (that I still have) and I tried to get a job at Walgreens. They weren’t too keen on those extras and wouldn’t give me the job. Too bad for them, because I was never a bad kid, didn’t do drugs, and I always worked my hardest at any other job I had. Even now I have to de-pierce my face every day I go into my job, and it sucks. It gives me that feeling like the man is still holding me down or something. Times are changing, practically every single friend I have has some sort of body modification. Though it’s slowly being more accepted, we’re still miles away from where we should be. If you’re interested please SIGN THE PETITION HERE! Share with your friends, on Facebook, etc, spread the word! READ MORE
While many of us are still reeling over the reveal of a squad-based Resident Evil there are some fans that aren’t too happy with Capcom right now. We’re not talking about a handful of angry gamers ranting in a forum hidden in some dark corner of the internet. This is an organized group of dedicated Resident Evil fans that have come together with a single goal: to get Capcom to reanimate the Outbreak series.
Their online petition highlights some of the things they’d like, but try as I might when I read it I can’t help but picture a group of people holding Mega Man hostage until Capcom accepts their demands. I’m definitely behind a third Outbreak so long as it’s multi-platform, and I can see remastered editions (a la the upcoming Revival Selection) of the original games doing well only if the tank-like controls are fixed. What do you think? Is Raccoon City enough for you or would you rather have an Outbreak File #3? READ MORE
