Coming to an Xbox Near You

When it comes to conservatives' outrage over the violence in contemporary video games, some Christians have decided to fight fire with fire. The latest video game to be unleashed on the market is called "Left Behind: Eternal Forces." Among the highlights, from the web site:

  • Conduct physical & spiritual warfare, using the power of prayer to strengthen your troops in combat and wield modern military weaponry throughout the game world.(Do you get to bomb abortion clinics?)

  • Recover ancient scriptures (Joseph Smith?) and witness spectacular Angelic and Demonic activity as a direct consequence of your choices.

  • Control more than 30 units types - from Prayer Warrior and Hellraiser to Spies, Special Forces, and Battle Tanks! (What about Bible Thumpers?)

Sometimes, I guess all you can do is shake your head.

Can you believe it... they made a sequel: It is an urban revival project: "Command your forces through the streets of New York"
