Yee-haw! Please do check it out. It would mean a lot to me. ;-)
And major props to my editor Jenn, without whom, the article would be a long (shocker!), rambling mess.
A new law in Greece has video game fans heading underground. The law has banned games on computers and consoles like GameCube, Xbox and Playstation in public places like Internet cafes, the British Broadcasting Corp. reports. It's part of a policy to clamp down on illegal gambling but critics say it fails to distinguish between computer games and interactive video gambling. Violators face fines and jail time. "Theoretically the police can arrest you if you are using your PC for playing games or if your employer catches you playing chess or backgammon on Yahoo," said a statement from the Greek Internet Cafe Union, which is fighting the ban. Officials told the BBC even though the law bans the playing of games on personal computers and game systems at home, police will only pursue gamers who flout it in public places.
