Sega has been forced to take down a child-themed website promoting a violent video game after toy maker Hasbro complained that one of the game's promotional characters bore a striking resemblance to its character My Little Pony, a childrens' favourite.

Sega and its ad agency confirmed Hasbro had put pressure on it to remove the website, offsettheevil.com, after the The Sydney Morning Herald brought it to Hasbro's attention
LMAO

glad I wasn't the only one.

sorry this is drifting off topic so quickly but....

I don't mind banner ads as long as they don't diminish the usefulness of the site. On the other hand I ab-so-loot-lee cannot stand pop-ups.

sorta on topic. It's always funny to see dark stuff made all cute and cuddly. I want a plush Doom Imp!
