    video game addiction isnt as bad of a problem as people make it out to be sure there are some really bad things we hear about from time to time like the south korean couple who let their baby die while playing a game but seriously the majority of people who play games know when to stop playing and go do other things...

    Yeah, before this bullcrap, why do not they implement a shutdown system after 5 hours to tv, and make it so it does not go on for next 3 hours? People who spent time front of tvmust have had a problem if people playing games have!

    You don't give them enough credit, Ubisoft has been combating VGA since the 90's.

    Did you play any of their Wii Launch Titles?

    Of course Activision does a lot better with their DS version of Fantastic Four 2. That game made me want to give up gaming.

    This may actually be a backdoor attempt by Ubisoft to crash the smor sites of their games due to an unexpected influx of demand over the weekend. [​IMG]
