Turkey’s government is looking into allegations that the popular computer game Minecraft is too violent, it’s reported.
The game is classified as suitable for children aged seven and over in much of Europe, and for those older than 10 in the United States. But Turkey’s family and social policies minister, Aysenur Islam, has ordered an investigation over suggestions that it promotes aggression, the Haberturk website reports. If it’s considered too violent, then the government could seek a nationwide ban, the website says. The move was prompted by a journalist who told Mrs Islam that players get points for killing other characters – including women – and asked what her ministry would be doing about it. The Pan European Game Information group, which assigns ratings to computer games, says Minecraft contains “non-realistic-looking violence towards characters which, although human, are not very detailed”.

Right, so I just borrowed the Ouya from my work today. For those who don’t know what an Ouya is, it’s an android based console which displays portable and sometimes Retro games in HD. Anyway, I set it all up by finding my internet connection (which is mandatory if you want this console) then put all my personal details in, including my card details. Okay pretty standard so far. So just as I was getting all excited about finally trying this console, after hearing amazing things about, it hit me with an update. Yet again pretty standard. 40 FRICKEN MINUTES to update an android based console through a fast Virgin Media connection… really?
Anyway, when the update FINALLY came through, I got to the homepage which had 4 options; Play, Discover, Make and Manage. Cool, nice little layout, pretty simplistic, I like it… WRONG. I really didn’t enjoy it. First of all, I heard that it was a completely free game-based console but nope! The only free things on it through, what looks like the Android Play Store, were demos and SOME emulators. So I downloaded a couple of demos and tried them out and OH GOD the control system is soooo awkward, even for the most basic games. So I threw that idea out the window and decided to give one the emulators a shot, so I choose an N64 emulator (standard). Cool, so how do I get the roms onto it? What it doesn’t say is you need to download them on your PC and transfer them, via USB stick, across. So after all that faffing around, it started searching for the one and only rom I decided to download for it, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Couldn’t find it! I searched through complicated settings on the Ouya’s version on the emulator and finally got to the USB stick. Yay I got it to work! … for a few minutes, until the lag popped in. So I gave up and turned off the console.
I don’t normally do this with new toys but for some something that was meant to be so simple and easy to use, became long and tedious. I’ve now factory reset the console and giving it back to the shop tomorrow. It seems this console was made for people to game without paying extortionate prices for online fees and brand new games but, the Ouya is not for me.

Minecraft pocket edition still has a ways to go to catch up with Minecraft for pc and Xbox 360 but the mobile version’s most recent update definitely pushes it closer.
