He’s posted a follow-up and a semi-apology, which means more or less nothing to me. It sounds like we’re all buddies now, but he still wants M-rated games taken off the shelves. He can make all the noises he likes about “having a conversation” with the gaming community, but he’s no different than any other authoritarian book-burner out there, except he’s the hip new digital sort.
