Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Here are a few shirt slogans I thought up, some better than others.  Use them if you like.  Change the wording, add art...whatever you feel makes a good shirt.

 

 

 

If killers were born of violent video game play,

 

You’d be dead before you finished reading this…

 

 

 

If violent video games harm children,

 

How come no one’s writing laws that make facilitating such play a form of child abuse?

 

 

 

Age recommendation on the front, content descriptors on the back.

 

What?  Too much for you to remember?

 

 

 

Don’t want your children playing M-rated games?  Don’t let them!

 

…or do you really need the gov’t to do your job for you?

 

 

 

It’s okay to suck at video games,

 

It’s not okay to suck at parenting.

 

 

 

 

To determine the appropriateness of a video game for your child, use:

ESRB ratings

Parental controls

The Internet

You’re damn head

 

 

 

-Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo-

 

If you’re serious about providing entertainment to gamers of ALL ages,

 

Why won’t you allow AO games on your consoles?

 

 

 

 

I’ll decide which games are appropriate for my kids.

 

 

 

 

Warning!  Player of Violent Video Games

 

Studies show I may blast you with a loud noise.

 

 

 

 

 

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.

 

Kill someone in front of me and I’ll run screaming.

 

 

 

Andrew Eisen

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

here's my variation on the last one:

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.
Heck, the violence on CSI makes me cringe.

岩「…Ace beats Jack」

岩「…I can see why Hasselbeck's worried about fake guns killing fake people. afterall, she's a fake journalist on a fake news channel」

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I like where you're going with that but seeing as CSI is a television show (fake violence), I think you'd be better off substituting it with something real (like the nightly news) as it better ties into the first line.  For example:

Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.

Heck, I can't even get through the nightly news without covering my eyes.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Is it just me, but given the GameStop vid that was referenced here a few days ago, should the prize really be a gift certificate to GameStop?  Maybe your choice of Sony, MS, Nintendo or Steam credits instead?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Hmmm...how about a charicature style image of Jack Thompson over a deep fryer with a generic fast food uniform on, and a caption that reads: F**$ing ECA.../ or: F**$ing video games...

 

 

-Remember kids, personal responsibility is for losers! For information on games and psychology, look up: Jonathan Freedman(2002)Block & Crain(2007) Just to name a few...

Reality/////////////////////////////////////Fantasy. Seems like a pretty thick line to me...

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

thshirt2 copy by you.

My worst one yet

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

tshirt1 copy by you.

I'm from the UK, so I'm not eligible to enter but i'm posting this one anyways. ;)

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How do you post the pic?  Can't seem to figure it out...

Also, am I the only one who thinks the ECA's logo looks like a penis?

Sortableturnip's Law: As an online discussion of video game violence grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Jack Thompson approaches 1

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How's this one?

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Well, I'd like to enter (despite having no ECA where I live), but they've decided to make this a USA/Canada only affair, so oh well. You'd think, with the advent of the internet, that everyone would be running worldwide competitions by now, but hey.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

It has to do with the regulations of the Non-profit status. They probably would otherwise.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

 Ok, it has nothing to do with the ECA, but it'd be cool to have a picture of Jack with a word bubble yelling 

"BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!"

 

 

......aaaand that makes sense only to 40k players :P but still makes me laugh.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

JT wouldn't worship Khorne.  He's totally a Tzeentch worshipper.  Think about it, he's totally insane and believes in a false "truth" given to him by the Great Manipulator. :)

If we're going with a 40k theme, how about using one of those pictures of five Space Marines holding out aganist a hoard of 'Nids/Orks/Chaos/whomever.  The Space Marines could have the ECA as their insignia and the baddies could be based on either censorship-fanatics or EA (who would totally have to be based on 'Nids then, with a Carnifex representing SecuROM.)

...Ok, I'm done gushing about 40k now. 

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

 hehe, one more and i'll let it rest.

 

ESA is the Inquisition!

 

ok, done with the 40k references now.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

It might be wise to use http://99designs.com/

Might get more submissions and it is also just a easy way for people to see what has been submitted.

The Campaign For Liberty used it to get art for the Rally for the Republic and I think it was pretty successful.  It's over but it'll give you a good idea on how it works.  http://99designs.com/contests/10532

It would also allow everyone to view the possible submissions, see which ones were eliminated, see which ones that are out of hand and give guidance in that regard.  I dunno, worth thinking about I think.  Might help making a larger turnout and even receiving a higher quality result.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

How about a big Securom logo?

 

 

Oh wait..

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I was never able to buy the previous year's winning shirt....I want that shirt, "Contrary to Popular Opinion, these do not make me a killer"

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

Wait, nevermind, just checked their site, they have it for sale.

It wasn't on sale for a long time though..

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

XD  I was about to say... I'm wearing that t-shirt right now...

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

"The ECA: Proving Jack Thompson is a idiot for 10 years running."

Jokes aside, sounds like a lot of fun.

Re: ECA T-Shirt Contest

I was going to say something about advertising and relevance, but eh, if ECA can't advertise here from time to time then there's a problem considering who's paying for what and what not.

Good luck?

Thomas RiordanNo, certainly not. Anything to prevent that kinda crap.09/01/2014 - 8:18am
SleakerAlthough.. I don't think it hurts anyone if kids think the report is true :P09/01/2014 - 3:26am
Sleakerand just for future reference. National Reports is a fake news site, they decided to remove their disclaimers a while back apparently...09/01/2014 - 3:25am
Thomas RiordanDon't feel bad. I posted the same thing last night and deleted it once I realized it wasn't real.08/31/2014 - 11:13pm
E. Zachary KnightAh. The report actually read serious to me. Oh well. At least it didn't happen.08/31/2014 - 7:46pm
ConsterAlthough apparently someone who was in a swatting ring in Texas took a plea for up to 5 years in July.08/31/2014 - 7:14pm
ConsterProbably because it's a satire site.08/31/2014 - 7:13pm
E. Zachary KnightI agree that the kid should be punished, but the charge and sentence seem a bit overboard to me. http://nationalreport.net/15-year-old-swatted-domestic-terrorism/08/31/2014 - 6:56pm

AvalongodAgain I think we're conflating the issue of whether Sarkeesian's claims are beyond critique (no they're not) and whether its ever appropriate to use sexist language, let alone physical threats on a woman to intimidate her (no it isn't)08/29/2014 - 5:04pm
prh99Trolling her or trying to assail her integrity just draws more attention (Streisand effect?). Which is really not what the trolls want, so the only way to win (if there is a win to be had) is not to play/troll.08/29/2014 - 5:02pm
prh99Who cares, just don't watch the damn videos if you don't like her. Personally, I don't care as far as she is concerned as long there are interesting games to be played.08/29/2014 - 4:34pm
Andrew EisenZip - And yet, you can't cite a single, solitary example. (And no one said you hated anyone. Along those lines, no one claimed Sarkeesian was perfect either.)08/29/2014 - 3:51pm
