California VS Video Games

“Nerdy News” is a mini-news show geared towards gamers, technosexuals, and all other geeky peeps.

In this twentieth episode of Nerdy News, I’ll be reporting on:

  • The upcoming ruling of the US Supreme Court on EMA vs Brown.
  • The concerns some parents have about Redbox game rentals.
  • Microsoft’s new advertising gimmick.
  • How gamification is changing education on all levels.
  • Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

    What do you think?

    Is California Governor and state senator Leland Yee right to protect children from “violent” video games? Or do you feel that this is a case of a state trying to take on the role of parents? Is there more Redbox can do to stop minors from renting M-rated games? Do you feel that a $2 a day rental is fair? Will the new interactive advertising for the Kinect be annoying or helpful?

    If you have any advice or tips on how I can improve these videos let me know in the comments! Thanks for all of your opinions! ^_^

    Update: Exophase reports that this morning the Supreme Court of the United States voted 7-2 in favor of the EMA, confirming that video games are protected by the First Amendment. 🙂
