I've thought a thread like this was needed for some time now, but wasn't entirely sure. Basically a thread to talk about news and such that don't belong in a specific thread, something trivial that doesn't deserve its own thread, or to just talk about things video game related in general.
To start, just a random little mess going on regarding an indy developer and a certain organization.
Anyone know of that indy game that came out on WiiWare and XBLA called "Super Meat Boy"? Well PETA, being PETA, made a parody game of it (similar to their Cooking Mama parody). To combat it, the developer made this response on twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/SuperMeatBoy/status/10140239737659392
Naturally, despite PETA shooting first, now all the Twitter PETA'ers are raging war. Quite amusing. Kinda wanna get the game to support them now, but I hear it is bloody hard.
