Former Bayonetta Actor Calls On Fans To Donate To Anti-Abortion Charities

Let's get the serious stuff out of the way first, as former Bayonetta voice actor Hellena Taylor is once again asking fans to boycott Bayonetta 3. Instead of using money to purchase the game, Taylor has listed several charities she wants fans to donate to.

Just like with the entirety of Activision Blizzard, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 just can't stop creating controversy. Shortly after receiving criticism for its portrayal of de-escalation, Infinity Ward was quick to explain that Modern Warfare 2 is not a "commentary on current events."
