Lego Halo: an early April Fool’s prank?
The Globe and Mail
Chad Sapieha writes of a new version of the game, Halo. But this time, it involves Lego.

“Part of me hopes that it is a gag; the very concept of a Lego Halo game smacks of a cash grab. But another part of me-the part that derived an almost sinful amount of pleasure out of the Lego Star Wars games released over the last few years-thinks it could be a great idea.

“Adam Thierer points us to a recent case where a lawyer isn’t arguing that his client, a 24-year-old, didn’t commit a murder. He’s arguing that the guy thought he was playing a video game. This is a really weak way to try to get someone acquitted of murder — and says quite a bit about the lawyers who would use this sort of defense.”
