Grand Theft Legislature: Can Illinois REALLY Ban Violent Video Games? (VL424)
Hey, look! It's another societal ill! What can we blame it on this time? Oh, I know...the same thing we always blame it on: violent video games. But can Illinois Representative Marcus Evans, or his great state, actually prohibit all sales of video games like Grand Theft Auto, just because the state might define them as "violent"? What do carjackings have to do with this? has this not been answered before now? (HINT: It has.) Maybe "to the best of my ability" isn't a high enough Virtual Legality.

Use code EXFIL to get 20% OFF and Free Shipping at In this episode MTBtrigger and Ronal discuss a concept that seems to be a barrier to progression after getting over gear fear - they define it as Exploration Fear. After spending a few weeks grinding out the 'end game' tasks and working on learning customs, the pair talk about how tackled learning new parts of the map and what was creating problems. MTB points towards only using familiar routes and this led to a sort of comfort on maps like customs where having a safe play meant doing that every time he was on the map. The concept of exploration fear also resonated with Ronal and he speaks to how it prevented him from really learning interchange until he decided to just run to the middle of the mall and figure it out. All this and more in the episode!
