Piss Screen, of which we've spoken previously, has been shut down at a games show by Belgian police (a little while ago, yes, but news from the urinal gaming scene travels slowly). The game showed up for display at Belgium's GamePower Expo, in Gent, but once there police believed the game to be "indecent" and had it removed. Despite the whole point of the thing being to discourage/prevent people from drink-driving. Ah well. Looks like it's back to care-free games of "don't cross the streams!" for the men of Belgium, then. Urinal game banned by killjoy Belgium police [Engadget, via GamePolitics]

Obvious truth: the planet is in the grips of a dire climate crisis. Science tells us that we have a decade — at the most — before the Earth hits a point of no return: a rise in global temperatures 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. If we don't prevent that from happening, coastal communities will be destroyed by rising sea levels. Extreme heatwaves will become more commonplace, causing water and food shortages. The planet's biodiversity will suffer. And so will we.
There's no better combo than the internet and dumb stuff, and when you add streaming to the mix, naturally some people will need to be removed for their own good.
