We now have a Playstation Home Group in our name! To get in, all you have to do is go on Home, search the clubs for FU Games (yes there is a space), and request to join. I will probably check it twice a month. Right now, the Clubhouse is fully stocked with pizza, soda machines, tables, chairs, knickknacks, arcade machines… and a bed in the corner that we will hedonisticly refer to as “the love bunk” >=]
Now you may be asking yourself, whats fucked up about Home? only two things really, It isn’t fucked up, but we are. and you can meet us there are predisposed times =D
The second reason is that it cost me ACTUAL money to create, and if that isn’t fucked, then I don,t know what is. D=
Anyway, I will check Home more often than usual in the next few days to see is anyone joins. Hope to meet some of our loyal readers! For all you Xboxers, sorry, but i don’t know what the Xbox equivalent is. When we get a dedicated Xbox blogger, Maybe I’ll get him to set… whatever it is (if anything at all) up!
Apparently the Vietnamese government thought parents weren’t regulating their kids gaming time well enough, so they stepped in.
In Vietnam, online gaming after 10:00 pm is now illegal. That means little nerds will actually have to SLEEP now, instead of game all night and become useless to society.
Oooohoho, but the government didn’t stop with regulating children’s online gaming internet use, EVERYONE is regulated. All ISPs in the country have been contacted by the Ministry of Information and Communication telling them to switch off access to online games between the hours of 10pm and 8am every day. Such limits have to be in place by March 3.
Any ISP deciding to disregard the request will have their service terminated, so it’s a mandatory rule everyone will have to follow. Deputy Minister Le Nam Thang made this clear:
Provincial departments of information and communication will inspect on-line games activities nationwide and deal with organizations that violate regulations by canceling their services.
China also implemented new measures to limit online gaming earlier this month, but not on such drastic a scale. While it seems no one can play games during a set period of time in Vietnam, China instead introduced the ability for parents to control their children’s access to such games.
God I love the US/Canada… Sure they watch what we do online, but they (usually) don’t tell us what we can/can’t do online… aside from the law of course.
Exovedate: Man I hate internet regulation. I think the only regulation/big brother bull shit that should ever go down is cops being able to contact an isp (with a warrant) to access information about a specific client. For example if a criminal is being charged as a terrorist, and the Government wants to ask a isp to provide info on the customer in order to find mutual (suspected terrorist) clients. Or another example would be someone being tried for child rape or some other form of sexual deviancy without mutual consent where the cops need more evidence to make a conviction.
Up here the CRTC wanted to make it so that all ISP’s in the country had to cap internet usage, and pay per use (the more you use, the more you pay) luckily the federal Government said “No fucking way” (give or take a swear word or two) but it’s still kinda scary the way internet regulation is going in some places. That’s why I’m a huge supporter of net neutrality. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_neutrality
