this post might border on hypocrite, but fuck it, we’re going ahead anyway. a while back, i wrote about the bp oil spill. it was a video, and links to the satirical twitter account we’ve all come to know and [for some of us] love. we had a laugh, and moved on. maybe we donated to help the gulf. at the end of the day though, we get that it’s serious. if we don’t laugh, we will cry.
in all seriousness, these fuckers are destroying the gulf of mexico, lives, families, etc. the entire situation is horrific, and no one with any shred of ethical integrity is trying to profit off of this shit.
well, no one except for microsoft. check out this excerpt:
“This is a $1 game offered via the Xbox 360’s Indie Games program. You can download the demo through the Xbox Live games marketplace for free or plunk down 80 Microsoft points to play it at all difficulty levels — including Gulf Oil Crisis difficulty.”
