Valve has decided to remove the game Hatred from their project green light program and the decision has been met by strong comments for and against the move (which has led to them putting it back). The game is, shall we say, interesting in that it puts the player in the role of someone that is planning to go out and kill a large number of innocent people. The trailer shows a number of disturbing images (in our opinion) including a scene of the main character putting a gun in someone’s mouth and pulling the trigger. From most aspects the game is not good for anything other than just senseless violence, but then again there are many other games in genre that follow the same story line and they are still available.

Well, well, well, it seems the plot thickens as things unravel in the case against Megaupload. This morning we noticed a post on Megaupload founder, Kim Dotcom’s Twitter feed asking if there was any truth to the claim that US District Attorney Neil MacBride was still employed by a lobbying agency within one year of his appointment. We took a look and found something rather interesting which could indicate a little bit of bias in the way MacBride is dealing with the case and also may lend a little validation to Dotcom’s claims that the whole case was cooked up by the copyright Lobby.

After Gottfrid Svartholm, Pirate Bay founder was sentenced to one year in jail he went missing. Now Cambodian police have arrested him on Thursday. It is still not clear if he was arrested because of his involvement in The Pirate Bay as it was stated by his lawyer Ola Salomonsson “As far as I understand it is because he is on an international wanted list”. He was arrested in Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, his hometown for the last few years. Sources said that he was arrested in apartment above the cafe on the riverfront, a place named Cadilla Bar, where he apparently often stayed.
