That “gnashing of teeth, rending of clothing” sound that you're bound to hear on many sites and blogs concerned with videogames, freedom of expression or both is the outcry over the removal of the controversial Super Columbine Massacre RPG from the Slamdance film festival's videogame competition. Although the organizers of the festival asked SCMRPG's developer Danny LeDonne to enter his game, they revoked his entry in the competition after sponsors threatened to withdraw unless that game was removed from the competition.
If you're curious about the game but have better things to do than play it (personally, I'm not even going to bother downloading this one), there's a review and writeup at Arthouse Games.
