Not a day passes we don't get some "rumor," wishful thinking, or outright bullshit about Half-Life 3's imminent arrival. This "tip," sent by "Igor," now adds numerology to the mix. Hell, it's at least as reliable as all the other nonsense we hear.
In this episode of Penn & Teller's Bullshit!, the comedy duo take on "the video game industry's worst nightmare" Jack Thompson, and hand a 9-year-old boy an AR-15 rifle to see if anyone dies.
Magical duo Penn and Teller's Showtime series Bullshit! will focus on the topic of video game violence this week, as long-promised, tapping self-proclaimed video game violence experts who we expect will have insightful and informed perspectives to offer.
