PETA protests Violence against the Swarm: Zerglings have feelings, too!

zergPETA wird zum Launch-Event von Star Craft II: Heart of the Swarm in Californien Flyer verteilen, die gegen Gewalt gegen die Zerg protestieren sollen. Wenn man bedenkt, dass PETA auch gegen Walfang in Assassins Creed protestierte, könnte man fast danken, die meinen das ernst. Aber so: Well played.

StarCraft players gearing up for the launch of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm will be getting a new perspective on the game's arthropodal extraterrestrials, the Zerg.

PETA—or, as we are renaming ourselves in honor of the expansion pack's launch, "Terrans for the Ethical Treatment of Zerglings"—will attend tonight's launch event in Irvine, California, and distribute copies of our new "Zerglings Have Feelings, Too" leaflets as a reminder that gamers and nongamers alike should have compassion for all beings—even those who are very different from us.

Ich hab' mir das Game natürlich gekauft und werde ab heute nacht um 12 jede Menge Terraner mit Zerglings schlachten. Den Livestream der Events rund um den Globus kann man hier online ansehen.
