The Horrible Show 08-11-10: Think of the Children in General

The Horrible ShowWould someone just Think of the Children… in a podcast? Justin, Cole, Ethan, Christina, and Coop dive head first into our first editorial roundtable in how to deal with raising kids alongside today’s games. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Coopopolopolis joins us for his first appearance on The Horrible Show so we can make sure the only daddy on the site isn’t corrupting his child, yet. After getting to know Coop and everyone’s Threesomes of the Week, we ask this week’s On the Spot question: What was the first piece of media you remember seeing without permission when you should have asked? From there we are in full force taking on video games and children. When is it okay to start your kid into gaming? Are ratings working? When should your kid be allowed to game online? We aren’t looking to solve the world’s problems as much to get the conversation flowing amongst ourselves and with you our listeners. This is an interactive podcast, and we want to hear your thoughts in the comments, via email, or on Twitter. This won’t be the last time that we Think of the Children.

    I got confused with Shadow Complex. I was thinking of Shadow Run. So, ignore my comment about it….
