Dead Space 2 isn't the only game stuck in the past. No More Heroes adds some toilet humor to the mix. In order to save your game you must take Travis to a bathroom and let him use the toilet. You apparently save your game on toilet paper. It was cute in the first game, annoying in the sequel. I had to fight the same boss so many times because I'd forget to go take Travis to the bathroom. That got old fast.

NGP seems doomed from the start. The 3DS has already established itself with a release date, price, and launch titles. Who knows how many millions of units the 3DS will have sold by the time the NGP is released. The price of the NGP is anyone's guess, and I'm not sure people are willing to spend another $300+ dollars on a portable system after buying a 3DS. I'm going to wait for either a price drop or a redesigned NGP. I was never a fan of the original PSP design and to see it come back for the NGP was a little disappointing.

It's about time Jim Sterling got a 101 on Black America. We all know there are idiots out there in the online gaming world. If you haven't been called a faggot by someone online consider yourself lucky. Why did you have to write an article about the unfavorable levels about President Obama in LittleBigPlanet 2? Is this a reflection of how you feel about the president? Is that why you mentioned the Kill Obama level in your title? Lets look at your first paragraph:
kill the president? THAT WILL SHOW HIM!" - Jim Sterling
Barack Obama is a symbol of progress for African Americans. The thought of him being assassinated has existed ever since he announced he was running for office. Whenever I see something as dumb as levels that promote killing President Obama I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with his job performance. If that were the case the message would be "Impeach Obama" much like the "Impeach Bush" messages that appeared while he was president. It's all about a black man being the most powerful man in the world.
Why contribute a paragraph explaining the possible motives behind the ignorance in LittleBigPlanet 2? It might not even be the reason why these people created the levels. I think most people do insensitive things online for shock value in hopes that journalists like yourself give them exposure. If you really had a problem with the levels you would have simply reported it, or at least called out the people who created the levels. You didn't mention any of the level creators once in your article. All you did was open the flood gates for more people to make Kill Obama levels in hopes that you'll write a story about them.
The word "Nigger" on the other hand can only mean something hateful. There's no way around that. If anyone in my mother or grandmothers generation heard you trying to justify using the word, Al Sharpton would be knocking on your door as I write this. I'd hate to see someone I respect as a journalist get blackballed after being made out to look like a racist.

Why would any gamer care what their mother thinks about Dead Space 2? Is that the best you could come up with to promote the game? Only way I can explain it is someone at EA is seeing their MILF fetish come to life. Why else would we have commercials of older women reacting to a videogame they never heard of? Then there's the creepy sweepstakes where you enter by sending in videos of your mothers reaction to Dead Space 2. Why are you so obsessed with my mother EA? I can't wait to see what Dead Space has planned for Mother's Day.
