One of my favorites of PAX East this year was Mercenary Kings by Tribute Games. Tribute Games is a small independent developer out of Montreal who have only released one other game so far and that was Wizorb. I was a big fan of Wizorb, so I decided to check out their newest title Mercenary Kings and I was not disappointed.
As everyone knows, in the past few months we have heard a lot of issues about gun control and the effect guns have on society. I am pretty middle of the road to be completely honest. I'm not so sure whether or not stricter laws will help with the violence. I think if one wants to commit an act of violence, then that person will find their means to an end whether or not it's with a gun. I think the focus should be on what we can do to help people who have mental illnesses than anything else. In the past few weeks, however, it seems like the buck is being passed on to video games. We are starting to see a lot of politicians and news reporters stand up against video games as a scapegoat for the ills of society.
