The Darkness banned in Singapore, along with everything else

Jul 03 // Jim Sterling    @JimSterling

To anybody familiar with Singapore law, it should come as no surprise that The Darkness has now been banned from the country's shelves. For 'excessive violence,' the thought police of Singapore have issued a big 'DO NOT WANT' to 2K's comic book adaptation where you can eat hearts and command slithering blackness. I'm sure the developers are weeping bitterly over losing such a vibrant and open market as Singapore's, where games flow like candy ... haha, sorry, I almost threw up with the sheer force of sarcasm there. 

The Darkness is just one in a long line of titles that Singapore has banned, with rumors that Bioshock is next. This is the part where the entire games industry should pretend the damn country doesn't exist. Why bother dealing with a place that outlaws oral sex anyway? I hereby ban Singapore and its anti-fun ways from the rest of humanity!

[Thanks to Joe Burling. He is banned from not being awesome]
