    Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has censured “Fight of Gods” video game released on September 4th, saying that it trivializes some highly revered religious figures.

    Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada today, pointed out that unnecessarily dragging religious figures into battle, who were greatly revered by the adherents of their respective faiths, to sell video game for mercantile greed was very disrespectful, highly inappropriate, insensitive and could be disturbing for some faithful.
    “Fight of Gods” from developer Digital Crafter, and published by United Kingdom headquartered PQube, is said to feature “a roster of ten larger-than-life fighters” and is available on Steam platform. It has been termed as “greatest tournament ever devised” and claims “mythological beings and holy icons must battle to uncover the truth and save the world”. David Pain is CEO of PQube, while Ken Wei is CEO of Digital Crafter.

      @Wolverine - Might be interesting, but it sure is causing problems!

      Infact in Malaysia access to anything 'steam related' from online games to store access was 100% blocked for a few days, until finally Valve removed the game from the store listing, then govt. restored access to Steam services for people in that country, and there is calls for the game to be outright banned in many other countries now.
