"Last week I wrote about the option in Star Wars: The Old Republic to torture a slave companion named Vette by shocking her with a shock-collar and making her watch as your Sith Warrior had sex with the widow of a man you’d just killed. I said this was a sign that games and the gaming industry still have a long way to go when it comes to issues like sexism and violence against women. Many people disagreed.

"To promote the re-release of the Star Wars prequels in 3D, a French fast food chain is offering two varieties of themed burgers – the Darth Vader, on a black bun, and the Jedi burger (which is conveniently and thematically brown, it seems).

"Activision has apparently uninvited Dutch porn star Kim Holland from a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 party in Amsterdam. The gaming outfit was apparently unaware of Holland’s previous works, so to speak, and when it pulled her invitation shortly before the event.
