In case you hadn't heard, AT&T announced Saturday that it intends to purchase Time Warner, Inc. for $85.4 billion. The deal is far from final, and if approved, wouldn't take place until sometime in 2017. It's an absolutely enormous merg...

The formation of the ESRB makes for a cool story

Gaming, as it is today, is fairly open to creative ideas. There are no real limits on the stuff people can make and that is good. No one benefits from media that censors important subjects, even if gaming tends to muck up the subject materi...
