Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{A woman is stood looking at the audience. Two boxes at top.}
Box: Five groups staunchly opposed to fun released their list of the most violent games.
Box: One of the games won't be released until next year.
Woman: Whatever you do, don't travel into the future, purchase Hitman: Blood Money return to our time, and let your children play it. It... will be... very violent.

Panel 2

{Scene change. Gabe and Tycho are stood facing each other. Box at top.}
Box: One of the games isn't available in this country.
Gabe: Do we really have a problem with American teenagers flying to Japan and buying games they've never heard of?
Tycho: {sarcastically} It's a fucking epidemic.

Panel 3

{Back to the woman, whose eyes are looking at a kid who has appeared. Box at top.}
Box: One of them, nobody even played.
Kid: I played Manhunt for like ten minutes. Then I smashed it with a hammer, threw it into a garbage can and set it on fire.
Woman: SEE? It did make him violent!
