A still from Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, a new ’80s-inspired video game from Ubisoft Montreal, opens with Toronto being annihilated by a nuclear bomb. (A screenshot is above.) Oh well. This isn’t the first time. [Via Reddit]
  • And speaking of video games, it seems a local accountant managed to make one using nothing but the primary tool of his trade: Microsoft Excel.
  • Oh look. Mayor Rob Ford made The Economist again: “But like a weighted inflatable doll that when punched springs back up, Mr. Ford is still standing.”
  • NOW Magazine‘s Jonathan Goldsbie wrote a fascinating article about an anti-abortion group that has been staging protests outside Toronto high schools.
  • And Richard Florida’s Martin Prosperity Institute has put together a heat map of casino opposition in Toronto. Unsurprisingly, the most intense casino hatred seems to be clustered in the east and west ends of downtown.
