I’m pretty hopeful that Bethesda’s upcoming scare ‘em up The Evil Within will help give the horror genre the mainstream shot in the arm that it deserves. But at the same time, I just cannot condone its blatant misuse of barbed wire, painting that entire industry in a negative light. We’ve been too afraid to speak up, as we’ve already been paid off for a 9/10 review. Fortunately, one outlet still has some integrity.
The Onion, a respectable source of properly researched and credible news recently ran an expose on the Bethesda game, showing how its emphasis on linking barbed wire to murderers and people who have improper relations with livestock, is completely undeserved. Here’s the video:
And he’s right. We need to ban this sick filth! While I go organise a protest, you can see the cruel and unusual use of barbed wire in these new screenshots from the game.
The Evil Within will be misrepresenting an entire industry on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC in August. Unless we stop this sick filth first.
