NY Attorney General culls web games of 2,100 sex offenders; “crime scene of the 21st century”

It's no small feat taking on the entire internet when you're making sure the world is safe for children - that's why New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman has removed approximately 2,100 registered sex offenders from online gaming communities instead.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks (or just don't like video games all that much), then you should be familiar with the Humble THQ Bundle.
