I know in this country (USA) that gun violence is a big issue but it is terrible how it is used to deceive and manipulate the masses for political gain and sometimes just pure virtue signalling. Mass shootings of course are terrible tragedies but are not the gun issue that should be brought up when talking about legislation. According to the Washington Post, the total death toll from mass shootings is just over 1,200 people. This is data collected since the 1960's and is continuously updated. It took almost 60 years to reach 1,200. Chicago reached that number in murders in just over 2 years, the past 2 years. God only knows the total death toll in Chicago from the past 60 years from gun violence. So call me crazy but how is adding more legislation and restrictions to buying a firearm for law abiding citizens going to protect us from those who don't care about those restrictions especially in cites like Chicago that already have the strictest gun laws in the country?

They say things like this "... our parent company joined other business leaders to call on policymakers to enact bi-partisan legislation to address this epidemic." But what does that even mean? Sounds like they're trying to appease people to make sure they don't lose money because of controversies. I think the only solution to mass shootings is a shift in how we treat each other, through individual, community, corporations, and government ways of thinking and practice. That's asking a lot I know and I don't think it will be possible sadly. No laws or policies are going to stop somebody from doing something as bad as a mass shooting, that has to come from themselves and the people around them. If the person feels hopeless and lost no law is going to fix that. You would have way more success in ridding this country of mass shootings and maybe even gun violence as a whole if there was more focus on treating mental health instead of gun legislation. Get to the source and don't blame the object used.

@spectrexr1: There are a lot of custom Xbox Ones, they even did a lot of 360's. They probably don't sell well anyways.

Nice, in games we need to monitor people's behavior. Because people need to feel safe in videogames. I think we should also take the guns out of the game and when the time runs out, everybody wins.

Seriously though this is terrible. I've read in the comments that this is good because people's fun shouldn't be hampered by other people's "fun'. But I would say that is the point of the game. If you're not good at the game and on other team is a guy who is very good and kills you constantly, you're probably not having fun. You can say that he is playing "the right way" so it's fine, but the result is the same. A person is hindering your fun. So I say leave the game alone and let people deal with each other. I don't play Overwatch but I have a feeling this could be a popular thing one day eventually creeping it's way into other games. Toxic, I say micro-transactions are toxic, but you don't see me trying to rid the games that live off them. I accept they exist and ignore them, like a gentleman XD.

GameSpot has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to toxic conduct in comments. Any abusive, racist, sexist, threatening, bullying, vulgar, and otherwise objectionable behavior will result in moderation and/or account termination. Please keep your discussion civil.

When did this message start being put there. Just noticed it now. Does this basically translate to "say something we don't like and we will ban you" like Twitter is doing? Who decides what is "racist, sexist, or vulgar" enough to be banned for? Especially with "zero tolerance" meaning no notice or explanation this should be a good thing with no chance of being abused....ever.

The sad part is that even if it was Lohan (which it isn't) she still wouldn't have grounds to sue. Artist use references all the time for poses and facial features, so artists would be taken to court all the time just for getting close to another image (honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they were). If you look at the original image and the GTA image side by side, they changed just enough to make it a unique image. You can't just walk into a court room and say "That picture looks like me a little" and be taken seriously. I hope they will continue to throw out any attempt at pursuing this dumb case.

@barcaazul: She did a play in London like 4 years ago, that's the last I heard of her doing anything. At this point I think she is doing this just for the attention, no normal person would be still fighting this.

@legendaryh1tman: The only problem I have with your statement is the AR and hunting rifle portion. Rifles account for a tiny percentage of deaths in the US, like in the hundreds a year. While pistols have thousands upon thousands of deaths a year. I would look up the number but its early and I'm lazy. People get caught up on the idea of an AR like they are all automatic and cause devastation across the country, when they don't. Pistols are the main killer in weapon based crimes and shootings but people still want to ban rifles. I chalk it up to ignorance of the stats and guns themselves. There is already a screening process for buying guns in the US, how robust it is can be considered a matter of opinion, but it exists. The issue is how do you screen for evil, that's the difficult part.
