We're taken aback. It's not often that The Onion breaks videogame stories. I mean, satire is their thing, yeah? Which makes it all the more impressive when they break the story on Close Range, a videogame which consists solely of shooting people in the face, at close range. The game itself features a demo online, which we've played with mounting fury at what can only be described as the foulest of murder simulator. We're horrified. In fact, so horrified we're going to present a gallery of head-shots so we can examine the depth of our outrage.
Feeling pretty outraged.
At least the game does try to actually contextualise this meaningless violence with some meaningful narrative. 'Tis a mere figleaf.
Here's the Onion's original news story...
Good work uncovering this Filth, Mr The Onion. You can play the demo here.
