review Death by Video Game 103 In Canada volunteers are raising money for charity by playing marathon stints of Penn Teller's Desert Bus probably the worst video game ever createdAcross the globe thousands of viewers tune in to Kurt J Mac's epic but seemingly pointless voyage towards the outer realms of Minecraft's procedurally generated worldIn Ira mothers encou.
