      No tax on  violent games.

    • Haha at Zumba Fitness 2 with its Teen rating maybe getting billed for being “violent” because it has mild language lyrics in the songs playing in-game. Only in Oklahoma right? 😛
      Really great episode this week Laura!

      i don’t know much about vilent game tax thing, but if the government is behind this, then this is nothing more then a sneaky way to steel more out of our gaming wallets.
      thats pretty much the bottom line i see.
