The Bible Online is a new strategy MMO game ... seriously

If you've ever read all the rape, genocide and deep-seated racism in The Bible and thought to yourself, "Man, that sounds like my kind of world," then this is the game for you! The Bible Online allows players to "slip into th...

Muslims shouldn't play games, urges Islamic writer

When games are criticized in America, the attack usually comes from some right-wing fundamentalist Christian nutcase. That's not to say that other religions can't get in on the fun, though. Writer Ebrahim Saifuddin belie...

Church: Games are a bubbling sewer of sexual pornography

The Church of England synod, usually content to keep out of peoples' business and discuss gardening tips over a cup of milky tea, has decided to whine about videogames again, still carrying a vendetta it's carried since 2007,...

Insane Christian group wants to ban Modern Warfare 2

It wouldn't be Christmas without some good ol' fashioned Christian intolerance, would it? A bunch of radical wingnuts have taken issue with Modern Warfare 2, declaring that all decent people should denounce it and the "massac...

Fanboyism should be called religous fandamentalism

We've all seen fanboys before. Ranting and raving, upsetting themselves by pretending that other people are trying to upset them, feeling persecuted while happily persecuting others. Wait, did I just describe fanboys or relig...

New Hellion: Mystery of the Inquisition screens

The Bible is coming to Xbox 360 ... seriously photo
The Bible is coming to Xbox 360 ... seriously
by Jim Sterling

For those who can't get enough God on TV or in one of America's ten billion trillion Churches, B&H Publishing Group has the thing you've been waiting for! The Bible is coming to Xbox 360, via the Indie Games Channel. It will go by the name of Bible Navigator X, which is the best name ever.

For a mere 400 MS Points, you'll get full access to both the Old and New Testament, a search tool to find all the killings, a bookmarking system to save all the sexy bits and adjustable settings for those that need their Bibles a specific way. 

"The Xbox isn't just secular entertainment anymore," B&H's Aaron Linne, hilariously. "We can use technology that other people developed to study Scriptures through a new medium. Some people are just more comfortable with a controller in their hands than a book."

I'd review this for Destructoid, but after playing Modern Warfare 2, I'm not quite sure I've got it in me for another game with a totally nonsensical plot.
