Geek Links of the Week

The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority have said that EA’s ads for Dungeon Keeper Mobile are misleading. That’s not surprising. Calling it a game is misleading. [Eurogamer]

The court-ordered Google plan to remove search results in Europe is already being used for evil. A former Merrill Lynch banker whose investments cost the company millions has gotten a BBC report about him pulled from Google search results.

Which game engine is the best according to industry experts and indie devs? It’s still the Unreal Engine. Just because it doesn’t seem to have taken off with the triple-A devs doesn’t mean Unreal 4 won’t still be big. [Develop]

The latest controversy to strike eSports isn’t a cheating scandal but a social network promotion scandal. Prominent eSports news site OnGamers has been banned from Reddit for a year leading to the resignation of Rod “Slasher” Breslau from the site after a submission and upvoting scandal. [OnGamers]

Fox News, the conservative pseudo-news channel that hates liberals and youths, ripped of BioShock Infinite’s logo for a logo of one of its pandering crusades. The irony. [The AV Club]
