[GameSetLinks is GameSetWatch's daily link round-up post, culling from hundreds of weblogs and outlets to compile the most interesting longform writing, links, and criticism on the art and culture of video games.]

Continuing down the week's links, I've been trying to expand my link horizons a little (when you have a certain amount of sites RSS-ed, it's difficult to keep adding), and the first of these happens to be first up here - the Japanese dojin/visual novel site NovelNews.net.

The Curious Case Of The Poorly Behaved Professor « Broken Toys
This one was all over the place last week - a City Of Heroes/Villains player who's also a 'new media professor' is obnoxious to people by griefing, claims he is being 'oppressed' when they go off on him. Unbelievable.
